The LearnJam team

Everyone at LearnJam has a background in education, combined with significant experience and expertise in educational publishing and learning technologies.

We believe that digital learning should help everyone achieve their potential. Our mission is to make this happen by helping learning providers create the best digital learning experiences they can – through learning science, engaging content, great design and thoughtful use of technology.

Our network

In addition to our in-house team, we have a large and well-established network of partners and collaborators. This means we can scale flexibly to manage projects of any size and ensure that every project team has exactly the specialist skills it needs. Our network includes:

Our story

In 2013 an obvious and damaging disconnect between the worlds of education and technology inspired us to do something meaningful to bridge the gap. That led us to set up ELTjam – initially as a blog focused on educational technology in English Language Teaching, and soon afterwards as a learning agency working with publishers and learning providers to help them develop their digital products and content.

In 2020, we changed our name to LearnJam, to reflect the wide range of work we do in both language learning and workplace learning.
