This session delivered jointly by the University of Derby (UoD) and Vretta Inc presents the development of the Elevate My Maths (EMM) platform: from an award-winning technology, into an ideal tool enabling effective numeracy skills training for all: students, teachers, universities, or employers. We will demonstrate how EMM works, how it can transform student experience, and how it can be quickly deployed elsewhere.
Together with Vretta and colleagues in Engineering, Apprentices, Psychology, Finance, Accounting, Business, or Education, we have designed 12 numeracy training courses addressing the needs of all Derby students. Courses can be deployed within minutes in modules/programmes through any VLE, and customizations are possible to meet maths specific requirements.
The University of Derby has supported 2500+ students to take an EMM course, and awarded over 600 digital badges to certify the completion of an entire course. Interest from the University’s external SME partners has now seen new numeracy training courses being developed and deployed in the workshops for individual business. The EMM project has already helped thousands of users to improve their numeracy skills.
We are now ready to collaborate and support more partners in the UK and abroad.
