I see, I remember. I do, I understand

Why did we start hubble?

Go back 800 years. School wasn’t very different to today: The teacher in front, the blackboard, the books – even the student falling asleep in the back.

800 years have passed and schools still work in very much the same way as they always have. This isn’t necessarily bad – take away all books, all blackboards, and an inspiring teacher could still make all the difference. However, we were wondering: In a world where we are constantly surrounded by technology that is making our life and our work easier, could there be a tool that makes schools better – in a way that has the teacher stay at the center?

This is why we built hubble. E-learning cannot mean putting students in front of laptops all day and letting them consume content. We have the teacher at the center of our philosophy. hubble is a tool that combines world-class content with analytics and admin functions – all in one place. Our goal is to help you do what you do best: to support, mentor, and coach your students. No machine will ever do that better than you.
