Don’t just take it from us, hear it from those who are benefitting from Learnium!

“Many of our students are engaged in some form of group coursework. Being able to share Microsoft Office documents, edit and work on them at the same time in Learnium is exactly the type of facility they need.”

Elinor Clarke

Lecturer, Coventry University

“Using Learnium enabled me as a lecturer of 400 students to globally respond to multiple requests for help on the same subject. Most importantly, however, was that students were able to offer peer to peer assistance, freeing up much of my time. The familiar feel and style of Learnium meant that students were easily able to adapt to the platform quickly having previously used other social media.”

Dr. Richard Perks

Senior Lecturer, Cardiff University

“Working on the implementation of Learnium has been a great experience for Coventry University. We’re pleased with the results and will certainly be using Learnium for other courses and to facilitate further collaborations.”

Ian Dunn

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Experience), Coventry University

University of Coventry

In 2014 the Univeristy of Coventry ranked 33 in the league tables. The university took action to improve its learning and teaching and by 2016 it had moved to 15 in the league tables. The university started using Learnium in 2014 with one course and in the following year it had made it available university wide.

Cardiff University

In 2015 the School of Biosciences wanted to increase student engagement levels outside of class. Over the following few months, the school saw student undergraduate engagement increase significantly across courses and modules. Hundreds of students are now more engaged with their learning thanks to using Learnium.

Is Learnium an Online Learning Platform?

The design and feel of Learnium is inspired from other social media platforms. Learnium is used by educators and learners as an online platform for connecting, communicating and collaborating. So in a way it is an online learing platform, but we prefer the term Social Learning Network.

Does Learnium replace my VLE or LMS?

Nope! Of course, if you wanted to, you could, but that’s not the purpose of Learnium. It’s designed to work alongside your VLE or LMS and Learnium can be embedeed in most virtual learning environments, including Moodle.
