Company descriptionRumie is an award-winning Toronto-based startup that is revolutionizing global access to learning resources by using low-cost, innovative technology to bring free digital learning to underserved parts of the world – from remote Guatemalan villages, Canadian Indigenous communities, Syrian refugee camps, and upskilling youth in East Africa.
Rumie’s approach starts with Bytes, microlearning courses comprised of high quality, digital content centered around 21st century skills. Bytes are crowdsourced from our corporate partners for different contexts and learner audiences. Bytes are designed within Rumie’s proprietary microlearning design platform (Rumie ByteBuilder), which allows volunteers to collaborate in realtime to create professional microlearning courses, without any instructional design experience. Rumie then works with on-the-ground partners to deliver the relevant learning materials to be used on any personal device that has web browsing capabilities. The Rumie solution collects usage and effectiveness feedback from learner behaviour. This allows Rumie and our partners to evaluate the effectiveness of the bytes, and iterate and measure learning impact.
Rumie is backed by the Silicon Valley accelerator that also produced Airbnb and Dropbox (Y-Combinator), is based at Canada’s #1 incubator (DMZ), and won the Google Impact Prize in 2017 and 2018.
