Obojobo Next

Obojobo Next is a modern educational content ecosystem. Obojobo documents are programmable, extend-able, and heavily fortified with data analytics.

Our focus is on making and delivering fantastic learning content to students. Obojobo is not a Learning Management System. Rather, it's an incredibly powerful content engine for use inside your LMS.

The Obojobo Mission

To keep our collective efforts aimed in the same direction, we've outlined what we want Obojobo to be:

  1. UI/UX focused design that ensures a satisfying & enjoyable student experience.
  2. Low barrier of entry for content creators. Creating content is as easy as writing a document in Word.
  3. Research centric design. Obojobo aims to be the premiere research-enabling learning platform by providing high resolution data, partnering with researchers, and including proven research outcomes back into the platform.
  4. Extraordinary practice and assessment tools that enable emerging teaching and learning models.
  5. Provide innovative new capabilities in online, blended, and mixed mode courses.
  6. Architecturally extensible and modular. Obojobo Next is easy to customize and extend.
