NKS Nettstudier is one of Norway’s biggest online schools, and their foundation is making education accessible. With the rise of mobile users, NKS found themselves in a situation where the software for their enrolled students – Luvit – wasn’t able to adapt its tools and content to mobile devices.

 

When NKS approached us to help them design a responsive solution, we proposed a different route.

In its simplest form this would mean re-encoding the videos to formats for mobile and making them available on a streaming service. To make it a proper tool for studying, we thought it needed more: a way to take notes and a way resume where you left off - independent of which of your devices you were using.

Inspired by how the Kindle manages sync, notations, sharing, offline storage and text highlighting across devices – we thought: why shouldn’t this work for videos as well?

The project is currently awaiting funding, and we’re looking forward to continue the process of what we think will be a service truly answering to making education accessible — on the go.
