Built with MasterClass

MasterClass is a content creation platform for producing highly visual and interactive content that works across all devices.


MasterClass was developed to create textbooks, interactive presentations and other learning material which can be viewed and used by students in an optimal way on all the types of personal computing devices available to them, from interactive whiteboards to mobile phones - of whatever variety.

Designed for all screens

Content that works equally well on mobile or desktop

One creative process produces applications for the web and apps for mobile devices

There are many other advantages of developing with MasterClass. Interactive tools can be used within textbooks and presentations.

It is also possible for users to alter or create their own interactive materials, without having to use any programming.

The framework even allows for sophisticated assessment to be incorporated into any product, again allowing users to make use of interactive tools, on any device.

MasterClass has flexible publishing options. Content can be published in a number of formats, including HTML5.

Automatically adjusts to any screensize

The MasterClass web player and mobile apps allow content to be sized appropriately for any device.

iPhone-only apps, or Android-only apps a thing of the past

Developing with MasterClass produces both iOS and Android apps simultaneously. Users have a shared experience, regardless of their device or platform.
