Mindwerx can also add specialized modules, specifically relevant to your organisation.

It is also available for adoption by universities looking to enhance their online offering, and has already run with the University of Southern Maine (USM), USA, within their Leadership and Organisational Studies program, and parts were also used in Australia at Swinburne University, as part of the Master of Entrepreneurship & Innovation (MEI) program, and the University of Ballarat’s MBA program.

Mindwerx Online eModules - How to Use

Mindwerx Online MindSpace eLearningMindwerx Online Academy programs are delivered on a specially developed platform called MindSpace, where we setup two specific areas for participants of our online programs.  If you are participating in a Facilitated Program, such as Deliberate Creativity & Innovation (DCI) through a University, Government or Business Organisation you will join a private Cohort area, where you will be able to engage in private blog type discussions with other participants, program facilitators and Mindwerx program managers. 

Whether you are part of a facilitated program, or are simply engaging with one or more individual eModule Programs (EG. Mind Mapping, Imagineering, etc) you will have access to a set of Mindwerx eModules.  Each eModule consists of Videos, Mind Maps, Worksheets, Templates, Links, Audio material, Exercises and Actions that work together to give you a complete and time effective learning experience.

You will hear your Master Trainers take you through the subject material, you will access downloadable notes, templates, posters, and more to use during your study, and you will be invited to complete exercises to lock that learning in. Mindwerx Online Academy programs bring the latest in creative thinking, innovation and advanced learning insights, tools and techniques to help you succeed.
