If there’s one thing we can say about 2018, it’s that it’s been very eventful, in the best way possible. Over the past 12 months, Enable has experienced many areas of growth. As this year draws to a close, we’d like to share some highlights.
Perhaps the biggest change here has been our location! After close to a year of planning and preparation, we made the leap to a state-of-the-art facility at Country Heritage Park in Milton. Along with more work space, we’ve also enjoyed having more meeting rooms, a central lounge/lunch area, a training room, as well as an A/V studio. Our new home also has the best views in town (escarpment, anyone?). We’d like to extend our gratitude to amazing staff at the park, with whom we look forward to collaborating, as well as Marina Huissoon and Green Propeller Design, who helped us make our vision a reality.
With our new space has come new capabilities and services to offer. We’ve already had a number of companies and organizations create top-quality training videos here, and we’ve been delighted to help them use these materials as part of the creation of greater learning experiences for a variety of audiences.
2018 has brought us some amazing new partnerships, and we’ve continued to work with some old friends as well. With long-time partner National Instruments, we created and released a badging and teacher resource portal. We were thrilled to help in the building of University of Waterloo’s new Engineering 7 building. Another highlight was a learning platform for Litteratout, to deliver resources to French teachers. And these are just a few of the projects we’ve worked on this year!
Red T Media, our sister company, has also had an eventful 2018, and our team enjoyed the challenge of helping them turn award-winning print books into interactive media. “Zoom In, Zoom Out“, a book/eBook about questioning our perceptions of the world, was the recipient for four awards. Our growing game development team helped in the creation of the eBook version of their newest release, “Hey, I’m a Story!“, and gave the eBook versions of “According to Phil” (about robots) and their “ThinkAboutIt” series a makeover.
Our team grew in leaps and bounds this past year, to include more innovative minds in game creation, audio/video production, curriculum development, user experience, and graphic design. We’re often told what a pleasure our people are to work with, and we have to agree.
To all the educators, trainers and learners out there, we extend our best wishes this holiday season. We’d like to thank our team, our partners, and our community for all of their support and hard work. It takes a village to produce great educational content and tech, and we’re humbled to be part of a great one.
Happy holidays everyone!
