Redefining the learning journey

Cut the crap, show me the visuals


To be honest, the e-learning platform of aNewSpring embodied everything users could possibly want. Nonetheless, this very quality made the platform highly impractical and cluttered from a user's perspective.

Even though any imaginable functionality was available - great news for all customers of aNewSpring - it did little to improve their user experience. We took this as our starting point on our search for a more rewarding and inspiring educational journey.

Our mission

We managed to boil down the myriad functionalities of an immensely complete platform to its core proposition: what do users actually need to learn. What functionality is required in what particular order, and what sort of hierarchy is the best match for such vast amounts of information?

This called for a bit of sacred cow-tipping, but in the end our interventions greatly improved the user experiences offered by this promising platform.

White label design

A New Spring's various customers all want to see their own specific corporate identity emerge from their e-learning environments. This demands sufficient space, while simultaneously requiring consistent user experiences with a uniform feel to them. Off course irrespective of the particular customer involved. Challenge accepted.

Adaptive course concepts

There are many ways in which an adaptive course can be designed in the massive system of aNewSpring. Multiple learning concepts available for different situations, such as case-based learning, an entrance test followed by remedial training modules, learning through practice and learn and repeat. The new interface helps you to design the course that best suits your situation.
