CanopyLAB offers a free social learning platform to every educational institution worldwide. To begin with, this offering is limited to a 6-months-period, however this may be prolonged depending on the development of COVID-19.
Due to the huge amount of domestic lockdowns worldwide, CanopyLAB has decided to offer our learning platform for free to all educational institutions. In the following, we will outline exactly what this offering consists of, and what our learning platform offers to educators and their students.
1. A social learning platform
2. Existing learning content
3. Support on how to digitize your own content
4. General customer service
5. Webinars with support for educators
The COVID-19 challenge calls for a one-stop solution and not solely a platform. No one should be left by themselves to take up this challenge, not the individual educator, the IT-employee nor the student.
A social learning platform
CanopyLAB offers their social learning platform to each school and educational institution to be used for free by employees and students:
- A cloud-based digital learning platform with no need for installation.
- Each school can get their own platform, or a national platform can be set up depending on each country’s national strategy for curriculum.
- Creation of individual personal logins in less than 10 min.
- The platform and the generated data will be administered by each individual school’s or institution.
- The platform enables social interaction, uploading of video lectures as well as video live-streaming, sharing of syllabus and content materials, digital tests, adaptive quizzes, and a range of competency based exercises.

Can be pre-loaded with relevant learning content
- Each learning platform can be pre-loaded with a number of digital courses including themes such as the SDGs, entrepreneurship, digital literacy, mental perseverance and much more.

Supporting your digital process
- Each educator will receive a host-login which allows you to easily and intuitively develop your own digital content for your students.

- The platform is powered by artificial intelligence which makes it easy and fast to create an engaging course. Actually, you can do it in less than 30 min.
