Solving the problems of social learning

Social learning promotes active learning, builds confidence, and develops collaborative skills. But whether it’s the group member who doesn’t pull their weight, the one who takes over, or the others who are too anxious to participate, we know that things don’t always work out.

At Handl our mission is to make social learning more effective and engaging, fairer and more fun.

We empower positive social learning experiences

Handl helps instructors create interactive social learning activities which playfully direct learners as they work together in small groups. We’ve playtested our designs to facilitate low-risk and equal participation so that every learner feels included.

In the classroom, online, or as homework

Handl works in the classroom via mobile and via video call for online teaching. Our scheduler allows learners to find others to work with outside of class despite often sporadic and varied schedules.

Using Ai to drive learner success

As learners use Handl we’re gathering data to understand how they work together and how to maximise successful collaborations. We’re working to produce real-time recommendations for ideal learner groupings and adaptive activities that change to suit specific group compositions and individual learner needs.

Simon Katan - CEO

I’m passionate about developing education to make it more effective, more engaging and fairer. For the past 8 years I've researched and developed innovative educational technologies to address issues of scalability and student engagement via social learning and gamification. I have developed numerous courses for Goldsmiths, University of London and Coursera, and have taught cohorts of up to 1000 students.

Handl emerged from my own teaching practices at Goldsmiths during the Covid pandemic, and I am pleased to have partnered with Goldsmiths on this adventure.
