What is Beekee?

Interactivity enhances learning but making learners active is often a challenge.
Beekee is a simple open-source platform that harnesses the potential of digital devices to get your learners to collaborate in face-to-face scenarios.
It has been also conceived to run on a convenient, stand-alone device that can be used in remote locations, we call this the Beekee box.

Make learners active

By allowing learners to express themselves answering short questions, posting photos or sharing files, Beekee encourages reflective engagement and allows to visualize everyone’s progress through a real-time flow.

Make learners interactive

Beekee serves as a medium for constructive discussion and debate by allowing learners to react to their peers contributions by commenting, modifying, or building upon them.

Distribute your course materials

Beekee facilitates course management by allowing you to easily deliver documents or instructions to learners.

The Beekee box is a stand-alone device running Beekee, which doesn’t need an internet connection to operate. It generates its own WiFi network to which learners can connect to.
