A Place of Firsts
HT2 Labs is the R&D company for Learning and Performance Technology. Through our software, we enable organisations to create exceptional learning experiences for their users.
We pride ourselves on being ‘a place of firsts’, and organisations work with us because we dedicate ourselves to doing things no one else has done before.
- First to put gamification into a corporate learning platform (Curatr)
- First to put comments alongside content in an LMS (also Curatr)
- First to release an Open Source Learning Record Store (Learning Locker)
INFLUENCING THE INDUSTRY
By being the ones trying things for the first time in our industry, our team has come to influence people and organisations well beyond our means.
For us, the backbone of any learning ecosystem is a data store and we’ve built one of the market leaders, Learning Locker.
Feeding from this we’ve created a Personal Learning Hub called Red Panda, where learners can plan and track their learning journey.
And for when you need to step in to design and deliver an engaging course experience, there’s our award-winning social learning tool, Curatr.
Often our solutions must co-exist with existing systems. That’s why we also invest time and money in emerging standards, like xAPI or Open Badges, to help connect our platforms together into a single ecosystem for personal, social and data-driven learning.
Our Values Guide Everything We Do
Inspirational and Fun to Work With
We inspire others to do better; and have a great sense of humour that is reflected in everything we do.
Data & Experience-LedWe use our research and experience to inform decision making; prioritising resources based on where we can make the biggest difference.
Customer Success FanaticsWe’re driven to go beyond simply dealing with customer predicaments and are committed to making projects successful.
Biased Towards ActionWe take urgent action and have an unwavering focus on achieving results rather than defining processes.
Not Your Typical SaaS Company
We research some of biggest problems in education and workplace learning; developing technologies that can help, even if that’s only in a small way.
What we’re really good at is at solving big, emergent problems with simple, intuitive technology. Right now our research interests revolve around semantic meaning, competency development and machine learning.
In practice these research themes impact on our ability to recognise achievement (however that occurs), to create credible metrics for personal development, and to generate increased engagement for providers dedicated to lifelong learning.
