Digital resource platforms

We’ve created 4 award-winning digital resource platforms (“Portals”) which each offer an extensive library of pedagogical videos with accompanying print materials across a wide range of subjects. Those videos have been developed from extensive, in-depth conversations with more than 100 world-leading researchers, including 3 Nobel Laureates, and independent scholars across the arts and sciences (see the list below).

Through a careful editing process, we’ve been able to produce a wide spectrum of innovative, accessible videos formats to connect different audiences with the fascinating world of research while revealing the inspirations and personal journeys behind the research. 

Ideas Roadshow was the sole recipient of The Educational Learning Resources Award at the London Book Fair International Excellence Awards for Ideas Roadshow’s Academic Portal, Public Library Portal and High School Portal:

“…makes cutting-edge research concepts accessible to a broad range of learners and educators with different needs through a careful, high-quality editing process and the production of a spectrum of innovative, engaging formats.”

“The different formats available make this an accessible product, as does the handling of the material. This remarkable product is enthusiastically recommended for public, academic, and school libraries with patron interest.”
