Business Description

Enable Education creates tools and materials that inspire better thinkers.
With this in mind, we’ve launched ThinkScape, an innovative learning platform that goes beyond the PDF in order to support hands-on learning. ThinkScape enables technical product manufacturers and educators to update their documentation to engage and inspire 21st century learners.

Our key to success is threefold:
1) Enable Education can quickly and cost-effectively convert existing content by adding video, assessment and interactivity.

2) Enable Education’s ThinkScape platform can deliver this content via online and mobile devices, incorporating amazing social and multimedia capabilities.

3) Enable Education integrates with existing client systems and learning management systems to feed critical business intelligence about learner success and behaviour to drive continuous improvement on both product and learning materials.
