Incite real-world conversations in classrooms worldwide

The Challenge

National Geographic Learning partnered with TED to bring real-world conversations to students in English-language classrooms around the world. The challenge was to create a mobile application that would showcase TED videos and NGL pedagogy, and complement classroom content.

Our Solution

nventive was asked to spend the first weeks of the project challenging NGL’s findings on their target users, markets, and initial requirements. To do so, we lead a series of stakeholder interviews to better understand the business of English-language learning, and NGL’s perception of the competitive landscape and market. We also spoke with NGL customers and their students to understand who consumes the content, and where the need for a mobile application comes from. Together, nventive and NGL completed the process of building user stories for the application.

Shortly after the start of the project, the client increased the scope of the mandate to include a student registration website, and a device management website for administrative staff. These were carried out in parallel and were delivered within the same committed timeline.
