CanopyLAB A/S is a Danish an educational technology company which specializes in adaptive learning. We work on two verticals: a whitelabel solution that corporates can rebrand as their own and use for internal training, and an open learning platform called The LAB where everyone can sign up and take courses for free.
Yes, the courses are completely free of charge and you never need to use a credit card to take courses.
We currently offer courses in 6 different categories: Technology, Entrepreneurship, Sustainability, Democracy, Human Rights, and Sustainable Development Goals. We are constantly adding more categories and courses.

First you need to find a course: You can click the “Course” tab in the menu bar on the top left corner. You can also access courses through the search bar. If you are not sure what course you want to take, you can simply leave the search bar open and press enter, then all courses will appear.
Once you find a course you like, click on the course and click the “take course” tab.
World learning NGOs, companies and institutions make the courses. We do not have courses made by universities. We think it is important to actively have civil society contribute to the online learning courses out there, because they often have a different perspective on world affairs than universities.
Individuals cannot make courses, but if you represent an NGO, a company or an institution we may be able to work together.

You earn tags (course tags, knowledge tags and exercise tags) by taking and completing courses.
The colors indicate how many times you have completed that type of tag. The colors move from red (infrequently) towards green (frequently).
Just like in a classroom, we do not learn just from reading or listening to a speaker do a short or a long lecture. We store information and make sure the information we learn sticks through exercises.
They can be a written assignment, peer feedback, a journal and much more. When you complete an exercise you don’t only learn new information about sustainability or entrepreneurship, you also get to practice a skill or competence. And that’s what 21st Century learning is all about.
When you sign up you can start following other people. You can also search for other people. We are constantly implementing more ways for you to be able to find other students.
