Background

The OPUS website is a complete toolkit for EdTech companies. It includes a science-based EdTech design framework but also provides other useful resources to support EdTech marketing, sales, and impact research.  

All the materials are created and/or curated by Education Alliance Finland. Our mission is to promote the pedagogically valid use of technology, and we welcome everyone to build the OPUS website further to help the global EdTech Industry flourish. 
 

Well-designed educational solutions have the power to transform goal-oriented learning experiences, but not without good pedagogical design.*

EdTech products should take into account the research on learning and pedagogy and
implement good practices to support learning.
*

OPUS is a toolkit that supports EdTech companies to make and distribute high-quality learning solutions.

The Value Proposition of EdTech

The OPUS Framework is based upon the principle that EdTech Products' main goal is to improve learning outcomes.

 

This can happen directly or indirectly, but without any clear signs of improvement, it's hard to justify the use of the product in learning. 

Before moving into reading OPUS and using it to support your design work, it's good to reflect upon the value proposition of your solution.
