Claned

We both under­stood that future success stories would stem from diverse teams, purpose-driven change, and revolu­tionary innov­ation. That is what we set out do with our col­lab­or­ation. It is a big under­taking and the team was excited and ded­icated to start pro­ducing some­thing spec­tacular. Through activ­ities, assign­ments and dis­cus­sions with our Learning Design team, they dis­covered how to com­mu­nicate their learning goals in ways that are social and engaging.

The program is a great example of how to leverage the pos­sib­il­ities of the platform to deliver a learning exper­ience that excites learners, engages curi­osity, and sup­ports communication.

We’re excited about the launch and looking forward to seeing them succeed.

Claned makes pos­sible the kind of social learning we need to promote. From peer to peer learning and at the same time, the blended learning exper­ience we deploy. 

Here is what Sant­ander Brazil’s Patricia Araque had to say about their goals and vision for this program.

What it is you’ve set out to achieve with the Explorer program?

Explorer is a pre-seed program for uni­versity entre­preneurs. During 12 weeks we help them to develop their ideas and turn them into a solution that con­tributes to achieving the Sus­tainable Devel­opment Goals 2030. The stu­dents become actors of change through the building of eco­nom­ically sus­tainable pro­jects in dif­ferent indus­tries, sectors and types of organisations.

Why did you choose Claned to help you execute this vision?

Explorer is a mix of online training and com­munity, both things are key to help stu­dents to achieve their goals. Claned makes pos­sible the kind of social learning we need to promote peer to peer learning and at the same time, help us lever­aging the blended learning exper­ience we deploy in part­nership with the uni­ver­sities part of the program.

How do you feel about the result of the process?

We are more than happy. These last weeks that we’ve dept into Claned fea­tures and worked with the team in the design of our learning path have been mind-blowing. Now our approach to the design of learning exper­ience is more social and more col­lab­or­ative. That is going to have a huge pos­itive impact on how the Explorers achieve their goals.
