By building the best open tools for active learning and teaching, while working in partnership with the world’s leading educators and brands, we aim to change the paradigm of online learning and inspire others in our joint pursuit for better education around the world.
In 2016, after sitting through countless traditional online video courses ourselves, we became driven to create simpler and more enjoyable ways to obtain new skills.
We therefore redesigned “online courses” from the ground-up – scrapping traditional lectures in favour of interactive, hands-on sessions that actively engage learners in new subjects.
By closely mirroring the real-world experience of learning practical skills from expert teachers, Workshop's technology makes it possible to build uniquely hands-on learning experiences which can be shared around the world.
Experiential, collaborative and enquiry-based learning methods let learners actively engage with subject matter.
Learners can join small groups of likeminded people and share their progress with the wider community.
New ideas and photos can be exchanged between learners and posted for feedback from expert mentors.
Through active participation in Workshop’s high-impact, step-by-step sessions within small, supportive groups of likeminded classmates, thousands of students have discovered a new love for learning outside the classroom.
As a result, learners on Workshop have reported an average satisfaction rate of over 97% – 1.5x higher than conventional online courses – while completion rates on Workshop courses are 5x higher than the average online course.
Workshop has enabled top schools and educators to discover brand new ways of producing exceptional educational experiences with ease.
A typical course on Workshop takes on average 13x less time and resource to produce than a conventional online video course.
Educators can focus on teaching while Workshop makes course planning and production as simple as teaching in person.
Learners in over 150 countries have discovered courses and schools that were previously out of their reach.
After 5 years of crafting our products and services alongside experienced educators, production teams and software developers, Workshop is guaranteed to provide quality learning and teaching experiences.
As Britain’s most prestigious cookery school, Leiths School of Food and Wine have been training up thousands of professional chefs since 1975.
Leiths partnered with Workshop to bring their expertise into homes around the world and to produce a range of the most effective and comprehensive digital cookery courses ever made.
