Periodic Reporting for period 1 - Lyfta (Lyfta: an immersive educational storyworld platform)
Reporting period: 2017-08-01 to 2018-01-31
To solve these problems, Lyfta is building a platform of high quality, phenomenon-based, immersive learning experiences to suit the global needs of learning. Lyfta's award-winning resources help teachers to capture the hearts and minds of their students - making it easier to introduce and delve into complex topics.
Lyfta conducted research and consulted IPR consultants on best practice IPR models for 3rd party content creation on the platform and has reached a conclusion on how to create a scalable production model in the future.
During the project, Lyfta’s customer base grew to 120 school customers in the UK and Finland. Surveys and interviews with end users tell us that teachers find Lyfta beneficial in their teaching and students find Lyfta extremely engaging. The feedback from teachers has been overwhelmingly positive.
Lyfta also explored US market segments and developed a relationship with a teacher training university in the US. Lyfta will start piloting with the university in spring 2018.
Lyfta is now ready to sell its service (SaaS) to customers and developed a competitive, new business model in its target markets and a clear roadmap on how to reach its 2018 sales goals.
