What we do
Lobster Ink is an online learning platform built with the learner in mind. Courses are crafted to be outcomes-based and our detailed high-definition video content, built to work across multiple devices, platforms, and browsers allows learners to access lessons, whenever and wherever it suits them.
Realising that the time our learners have to spend
studying is in short supply, Lobster Ink utilises a combination of learning techniques that help learners achieve their course goals quickly and efficiently.
From course design to production, translation, distribution, and ongoing facilitation performed in-house, Lobster Ink provides an unrivalled end-to-end learning solution
