Hodder Education

Agency: MMT Digital

Hodder Education worked with MMT Digital to enhance the experience of their e-learning product. MMT Digital discuss the project

The brief…

Hodder Education is the second largest secondary school publisher in the UK. They wanted to redesign and redevelop their digital learning product, Dynamic Learning (DL), which we first built back in 2008 and have implemented several upgrades to since.

Hodder wanted to make DL more intuitive and easy to navigate. They also had lots of new features they wanted to implement such as personalised dashboards for students and lesson building functionality.

Hodder also wanted to optimise the product for tablets.

What we did…

The stunning new design of DL means that the product is intuitive and easy to navigate, with easy to find features and instant access to the titles of content that an institution has subscribed to.

The unique lesson builder within the product allows teachers to create lessons from the material within the titles, or from their own material, and to then share it with teachers and students. It is also possible to monitor pupil progress by assigning tests and assessments, utilising resources within the product to act as reference points.

Teachers can manage the students within the solution and control what those students have access to.

Students themselves have their own personalised view to see and manage the work that has been assigned to them and view their results.

We moved a number of features from flash to JavaScript to ensure tablet optimisation.

The results…

– Over 120,000 active users in the last 12 months

– Over 10,000 institutions using Dynamic Learning

The Dynamic Learning product has significantly increased the possibilities for teachers to manage their classes, assign work and grade tests. This has subsequently enhanced the learning opportunities for their pupils and students.
