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.
