Focus on what students can do.
Learning journeys are structured around projects and real-world problems to solve. Everything else - resources, quizzes, flashcards, feedback - is meant to support learning activities.
Learning how to learn doesn't magically happen when students do projects. Students develop strong learning habits when they self-reflect, keep a work journal, analyse their progress, and set personal goals.Tools that promote student agency ⟶
If you want a purposeful community, you have to design it.
With Rbean, students might do group projects, answer each other's questions, share the resources that helped them learn, share their notes, and give peer feedback.
When we say gamification, we mean game mechanics that develop interest in learning itself. Think managing your correction credits, acquiring power-ups, winning task-related achievements, and generally making meaningful choices on your journey.More info coming soon
We are Laurie and Mathieu, founders of Rbean and part of a small team there.
LMS’s are dominated by entreprise software designed for admins - not students or teachers.
Truth is, learning is a messy process. It’s not the content you consume - it’s what you do with it. It’s the feedback you get, the relationships you build with teachers and peers, the skillset you craft for yourself.
Why do we care? Because we are educators. For 10 years, we worked in several coding schools - each a different mix of project-based learning, peer learning, and mentoring. Over time, we matured our approach and developed a fixation for the student experience.
In 2019, we opened Rbean as a provider of technology courses. We built the platform to support our approach and deploy our courses - we eat our own dog food, so to speak. After using it for over a year, we have decided to open it to the public.
We hope you’ll join us in our quest to meaningful learning experiences!

P.S. If you wonder, we are self-funded and will stay that way. We are building Rbean for the long-term, to do the work we love with other educators.
