KnowHow at the point of need...

TEAM

KnowHowHere is the latest project from a team that started working together in 1997 with a vision to use new digital learning technologies to improve performance and reduce costs.

In 2016 after two decades of researching, innovating and developing in the 'traditional' eLearning space, David and Andrew decided it was time to really focus on the 'elephant in the room' - the reality that learners simply forget almost all of what's delivered using traditional, single-point learning.

Surely with the technologies of 2017 we could do more than replicate the classroom online?

After a lengthy research process, we identified an intersection between need (workers who need KnowHow where & when they need it), the pedagogy (personalised, just-In-time learning) and the technology (mobile devices and location services).

David and Andrew then established KnowHowHere and assembled a team of specialist contributors to develop the KnowHowHere App.
