“We have developed a cutting-edge learning platform that offers a revolutionary approach to education. We believe in learning by doing rather than simply taking offline learning to an online platform. Our short, bite-sized 7 to15 minute long lessons are designed for students to learn while simultaneously making an impact in their personal ventures and careers,” says Christian Rebernik, co-founder of Tomorrow’s Education.
“The challenge-based, remote-first learning method ensures that our students gain practical knowledge and real-world experience throughout their studies,” he adds.
Challenge-based learning system
According to the co-founders, the concept came about while homeschooling during the lockdown at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Founded by serial entrepreneur Christian Rebernik and education expert Dr. Thomas Funke in 2020, Tomorrow’s Education has developed a mobile-first, personalised challenge-based learning system that enables people from anywhere in the world to gain a Professional Master’s degree in Sustainability.
According to the company, students can enroll in a flexible learning experience based on real-world challenges. The challenges are designed by impact-driven industry leaders from top companies such as Tier Mobility, Wandelbots, and Share.
