Esme Learning supports individual executives, universities, and corporations to deliver leading technology and the latest business trends that enable learners to transform their careers, launch new ventures and improve business acumen.
Leading universities, such as the University of Oxford, partner with Esme Learning to develop and deliver high quality, innovative online courses at pace with market demand. And, by offering the Esme Learning portfolio of courses to their key executives, corporations feel confident about their teams' ability to manage the impacts of digital transformation.
Combining learning science with AI-enabled technologies keeps students on track and focused on the material that will help them get ahead in their career. Presenting leading academics and industry leaders through superior content production keeps students engaged and involved. Our experienced team of learning design, production and technology professionals deliver high standards that reflect the standards one would expect from innovative, elite academic institutions.
We teach executives as they work - in cross functional teams. Learners participate in interactive simulations and team projects which reinforce applied learning and enhance collaboration and complex problem solving skills.
Our cognitive artificial intelligence enabled coach improves learning communication skills and builds team effectiveness.
In our Oxford Cyber Security Programme students participate in a live cyber attack simulation where each team member assumes a specific role within a fictitious organization that has been victim of a cyber breach.
The Esme Learning Approach provides a dynamic digital scaffold that uses varied pedagogy, and lessons from cognitive and neuroscience, to maximize each learning experience.
A recent study, funded by the National Science Foundation, proved that the Esme Learning Approach delivers 30-35% improvement on metrics such as grades and retention and our completion rate of courses is typically over 90% against the industry average of 3-5%.
We've assembled a world class team of course production professionals, instructional designers, and multimedia experts. Through our unique collaborative design process, the Esme team works side-by-side with some of the world's top business and academic minds to render their ideas in natively digital experiences.
