Reelae was born in spring of 2016, when two students undertaking their Masters degree at the University of Technology Sydney, decided they wanted to improve learning experiences after being frustrated with the legacy systems they had been using. Collaborating during groupwork felt inefficient and, more importantly, lacked a process to mark assessments fairly across team members.
The two students, Samson Korawali and Richard Borges, set about building a tool that could ease the facilitation of group tasks and boost accountability. During the development process, they discovered that their software tool not only provided a missing management tool for educators, but also had wide and deep applications for any organisation running learning management systems.
Today, Reelae is made up of a team of professionals with combined expertise of more than 15 years in educational technologies, 20 years in enterprise applications and 20 years in software development.
Our belief is that all learning should be made simple. We believe that the simpler we make our tools, the more time we save educators, giving them more time to build happier, more productive learning experiences.
Reelae was built to be scaleable. It is designed to help learning at any age and provides educators with an easier and more meaningful experience with their students. The simplicity of the tool means it can be used whether you are in a suburb in a big city or in a remote village of Papua New Guinea.
Beyond the technology, Reelae will seek to partner with businesses to sponsor educational support for rural or impoverished communities to aid learning, through its ‘Heart to give’ community outreach program. Reelae’s founder and CEO, Samson Korawali, has committed 5% of all the company’s profits to be ring-fenced for direct community programs.
