Nurturing potential.
Enabling independence.

A task based learning system using location based technology designed for smart phones and tablets.

Enabling trainees with learning difficulties to manage tasks independently in the workplace.
Ember is a unique task based learning system designed for smart phones and tablets that uses location based technology.
Ember enables people with learning difficulties to manage tasks independently in the workplace.

How it works

Ember had been designed so that information comes to you when you need it. Simple step by step tasks appear on your device enabling you to carry out tasks independently. Different tasks can be sent to different people in the same workspace. Tasks can be designed using accessibility and voice enabled options.

Create tasks

Tasks are created using a content delivery system as text, images or video.

Assign to places

Tasks are paired with beacons placed at task points in a work space.

Download the task

Tasks appear on your device when you are near a beacon.
