Elevate learner satisfaction and soar beyond your KPIs with specialist LMS UI/UX design

It’s an unfortunate truth - a lot of LMSs and learning apps leave much to be desired. They're often clunky to use and uninspired, causing frustrated learners to bounce, never to be seen again.

Our seasoned team has crafted hundreds of LMSs for both global brands and dynamic startups, bringing a wealth of knowledge, data-driven insights, and hands-on experience that’ll drive better and faster engagement and retention results.

Plus, with insights from our development and consultancy teams, we ensure our designs are both innovative and realistic - all while considering possible technology approaches and limitations throughout.

UX for teens: how we helped school students to choose their perfect university course

Designed for KS4 students, micro-courses from the UKs top universities were designed to give students a glimpse of what they could offer, supporting students as they planned their steps into higher education.
We knew that a traditional “school-like” LMS experience - like those delivered by Moodle - would feel boring to students and damage user adoption.
So our UX work aimed to create a fun and engaging “Netflix” style experience that would get students excited about planning for their future.


How Absolute Dogs increased retention with Gamification

It’s undeniable that gamification done right keeps learners engaged for longer, leading to increased watch time and course completions. But with content engagement being so closely linked to customer retention, we wondered how else we could elevate gamification techniques to keep customers happy – and subscribed – for longer.
Our custom-designed gamification engine guided new customers along their journey to reduce first-month cancellation, and then kept them hooked to increase customer LTV.
