Natur & Kultur to develop digital learning materials with Ubiikki
The development will be based on Ubiikki’s platform Cloubi, which is already used by publishers in six different countries, for example by the Finnish educational publisher Otava.
“We welcome this co-operation with Natur & Kultur where we can use our combined expertise in technology, design and pedagogy,” says Kristian Valkama, vice president at Ubiikki.
“Cloubi is a flexible and adaptable platform that enables us to offer digital learning materials with evident pedagogical benefits,” says Helena Holmström, Publishing director at Natur & Kultur.
“Otava’s goal is to support better learning. It means a lot that we share this vision with Natur & Kultur in developing the learning experiences of the future,” concludes Otava’s Publishing director Teuvo Sankila.
Cloubi is a comprehensive platform for the production and operation of digital learning materials. It enables a wide variety of digital learning products with features such as interactive assignments and advanced analytics. Cloubi is currently in use in six countries and continuously developed in order to meet increasing market needs for pedagogical and easy-to-use digital learning content.
