Workseed story: Innovative solutions for working-life oriented education

Workseed LMS (Learning Management System) was first created in 2016 to better address the developing needs of vocational education in the Nordic countries. The initial purpose of the platform was to facilitate learning at workplace, better monitor vocational studies, and visualize the progress of individual students in a simple interface. 

Our team’s work was defined by our strong experience of software development and turning promising concepts into working products. The first version of the Workseed LMS entered the market during the same year. 

The platform found its first users in Finnish vocational institutes, where it provided necessary tools to monitor and supervise learning that takes place at workplaces. Learners had the ability to document their work easily, workplace supervisors could provide transparent feedback, and teachers could better understand how their students are really doing. 

Soon the platform was adopted in Nordic universities of applied sciences that had made a strategic decision to improve how they manage internships. During the subsequent years, even companies have discovered Workseed as a platform for delivering corporate trainings and new employee on-boardings. 

For the last years, Workseed has been further developed in close collaboration with multiple vocational institutes, institutes of technology, and private sector actors. Workseed acquired a reputation as a customer oriented partner that takes user needs well into consideration. 

The cornerstone of out product development remains understanding the needs of training and teachers. We do not adopt market best practices, but rather create new innovative solutions for user segments that have traditionally been under-serviced. 

Our platform is supplemented by services provided by our professional team. We provide extensive support for our partners in adapting new pedagogical models. 

We believe that when our product and service development is based on understanding user needs, we can offer the most innovative LMS for working-life oriented learning – for vocational education and private sector alike. 

Our story - Workseed LMS

Workseed’s story began in 2016, when the planned vocational education reform in Finland caused great concerns among Finnish teachers.

One vocational college came to us with these concerns. They wanted to make learning and overall degree structure management easier and find a way to visualise the progress of each individual student. With our strong background in application development and commercial expertise, we designed the basic idea behind Workseed’s learning paths and got the platform up and running within the same year. Soon after, Workseed also expanded to universities of applied sciences, as the need to improve training processes had evolved to be critical for their educational strategy.

In the following years, Workseed’s development has been driven by close cooperation with a large number of institutions of different industries and sectors.

Workseed focuses on understanding the needs of education and its educators and responds to them with an easy-to-use LMS (Learning Management System). Instead of an application with mainstreamed features, Workseed’s customers receive a tailored product which exactly meets their requirements.

Our service is customer-oriented and includes significant pedagogical support for the implementation of new educational approaches. We believe that within targeting our services towards the true necessities of vocational education lies our capability to offer the most innovative LMS for vocational and higher education institutions.
