FAQs

How will I have a direct impact on improving digital learning for myself & others?

- 5 recommendations have been added to our roadmap 

- 1 recommendation is currently being tackled. 

- 1 recommendation has been actioned & implemented! What is it? A Rumie search bar that can be embedded on our partner organizations' websites for their learners to access Bytes in an efficient & effective manner, without leaving the site.

Let's have a conversation on this!
