iCollege Limited's mission is to provide students with innovative courses, great learning experiences, and industry-aligned educational outcomes. To further support this mission, iCollege Limited wanted to extend its offering through online non-accredited micro-credentials.
iCollege needed a turnkey solution that enabled a seamless enrolment process, a learning experience designed for adult learners with a focus on fostering a community of practice; as well as enabling them to reach a global marketplace. They were also keen to partner with an organisation that was experienced in designing and delivering engaging non-accredited micro-credentials.
With the goal to diversify its revenue stream and increase enrolments in online micro-credentials, the challenge was how to successfully launch and deliver online non-accredited micro-credentials based on effective online learning principles.

Furthermore, within this period, iCollege's Limited's courses generated a total of 1,359 total comments and 1,105 total likes; with an average of 13 comments and 11 likes per student. This indicates that students are highly engaged in the learning experience as a result of high quality learning design.
