Bracken customers Pathways Awarua

Pathways Awarua

Developed for the New Zealand Tertiary Education Commission by Maths Technology

Pathways Awarua is an online learning environment that has been developed for adult learners to improve their reading, writing and numeracy. Learning modules have been designed for New Zealand adults with contexts and examples relevant to their everyday lives.

The Bracken platform allowed us to create a richly interactive and engaging resource that has been well received by our users. Tutors or trainers first register and complete a short series of modules that introduce the system, and and upon completion they can begin registering their learners. Tutors have access to shared resources and discussions, and importantly can monitor progress of their learners.

Since launching in June 2011, more than 170 organisations throughout New Zealand are now using Pathways Awarua to assist and support their learners in strengthening literacy and numeracy. Nearly 15 million questions have now been answered correctly by over 20 000 learners.

PGA Coach New Zealand

The PGA of New Zealand and New Zealand Golf recognised several years ago that to have a world-class golf education programme, an e-learning environment was not only an advantage, but an imperative.

They proved to us that they not only had the technical expertise to offer us what we wanted, but also a programme that enabled us to place our 96 coaching modules into an e-learning space using Bracken in a most user-friendly way.

The team at Bracken are there to help every step of the way, and issues are always solved with a smile.

Video Based Review, Otago University

Video Based Review: Otago University

Online technologies have an important part to play in health professional education. They allow us to shift learning into the student's control, and provide opportunities for students to address tasks when they are ready to do so. We needed a flexible technology to help us teach critical reflection to health professionals, and the video annotation tools in Bracken provided everything we needed. The team at Bracken have been very supportive and generous with their time and have helped us complete a successful pilot designed to improve health professionals' ability to reflect on their communication with patients and whanau.

Bracken customer Otago Polytechnic

Otago Polytechnic

OP online was an appealing prospect for my teaching and my students. In previous years running our biomechanics and video analysis course, student surveys showed that the few online lessons available on Silicon Coach live where engaging and taught them more than conventional lectures. This year we have decided to replace all lecture classes with Bracken built lessons, specially designed to cover the content and theory needed in this course. Early impressions are good with students engaging and enjoying this new learning environment. This mean formal class times can now be spent on, doing stuff and not sitting around listening.
