[Save the Date] Lift-off for the third edition of our Mobile Learning Summer University on 2 & 3 July 2019

For the past two years, the most loyal customers of Teach on Mars have headed off to spend two days sharing experiences and discussing best mobile learning practices – all under the French Riviera sun.

Teach on Mars is France’s leading mobile learning provider but the company is also continually expanding its reach, and this year will call on international speakers and French experts to discuss learning trends beyond its borders. The entire Martian team will also be present to share this annual event with you, including the company’s founders, engineers, salespeople, project managers and support staff.

And given the success of the previous two editions, we’re keeping the format the same and look forward to meeting you on 2 & 3 July 2019 in a convention centre somewhere on the Côte d’Azur! The venue and programme are under wraps for now but will be revealed in the next few weeks.

Are you a trainer, digital learning manager or L&D director? Why not join us for this friendly and rewarding experience? Register now by sending your details to event@teachonmars.com.

To whet your appetite, you can see images from previous editions on the Summer University website.

We look forward to bringing you further exciting details very soon!


Mooc of the Year, an evening to reflect on the future of learning

Mooc of the Year, an evening to reflect on the future of learning

The third edition of Mooc of the Year is being held on January 30, 2019 at the Elyseum in Paris, and the focal point will be the awards ceremony that will showcase the best online courses of the year.

Showcasing the best digital courses

My MOOC is looking forward to holding its annual Mooc of the Year event on January 30, in partnership with Learning Technologies, Les Echos START and JDN.

As in the previous two years, the jury of the evening will reward the best online courses according to a range of criteria. This year sees the entry of two new award categories, most international training organisation and best training platform, and Teach on Mars will be entering along with one of its customers.

This year’s edition marks another new departure for the event, with Mooc of the Year hosting Innovation Village, a dedicated space which will feature several start-ups including Teach on Mars! Our iconic red and white rocket was already in the mix last year alongside the Bordeaux Wine School with its OenoBordeaux-Discovering wine MOOC, in the Best MOOC designed by a company category. This year, Teach on Mars is proud to be an official sponsor of the ceremony alongside Mooc Agency and Learning Tribes.

Goodbye 2018… a look back over another year on Mars

Goodbye 2018… a look back over another year on Mars

Time flies when you’re having fun, and almost without us noticing, another year is drawing to a close here on planet Mars. So just before final curtain and fade to black on 2018, climb aboard the red-and-white rocket and fasten your safety belts for one final warp-speed trip back through the adventures and exploits of Teach on Mars over the last twelve months!

365 days in a Life On Mars! Some highlights…

An invitation to the Presidential Palace! At the annual meeting of the heads of the French Tech Pass Group 2017-2018 tech companies at the Palais de l’Elysée, Teach on Mars received its French Tech Pass diploma from none other than Mounir Mahjoubi, the French Secrétary of State for Digital Affairs (classy, huh?).

Awards in France and farther afield! Teach on Mars charted at 135th place in Express Entreprise magazine’s Top 200 French Start-Ups chart and was also ranked 208th in the French Web 500 chart. And with international visibility growing all the time, the recognition did not stop there, as Teach on Mars was also selected by the UK’s Learning and Performance Institute (LPI) as one of their Top 15 Learning Technology Providers. The LPI is the UK’s leading certification organisation in the organisational development marketplace, which makes this award, coming as it does in Teach on Mars’s very first year of LPI accreditation, especially significant.

The century is up! 2018 saw Teach on Mars reach the milestone of its 100th blue-chip client .That’s 100 of the world’s leading organisations signed up for the extraordinary adventure of next-gen learning. The Teach on Mars app is now used by learners in 23 different languages and has been deployed in 62 countries worldwide.

Lift-off for the Marketplace! 2018 also saw the official launch of the very first mobile learning Marketplace, a unique dynamic catalog of reference-quality, mobile-native off-the-shelf learning content designed to connect training authors and clients in a seamless transaction experience. The Marketplace already offers some 150 hours of specially selected learning content – that’s around a hundred training titles and no less than 1960 separate learning activities.

Quizzing on an epic scale! Cheese Battle, Chocolate Battle and company. You know them all right? Maybe you’ve played them all too? If you have, you may have contributed to the awesome period of October and November 2018, when an incredible total of 1 400 000 Teach on Mars quiz battles were launched in just two months. That’s an average of 40 000 quiz battles per day – a performance worthy of inclusion in the Guinness Book Of Records!

A year of connections! Your Teach on Mars team was more connected than ever in 2018, posting, publishing, tweeting, sharing and liking to unprecedented levels. As the year draws to an end, we have 710 posts to our collective name, and are proud to have 2530 followers and 2459 likes.

Every event a main event! You know the men and women of Teach on Mars – and you know how showcase events are a vital part of life on Mars! The regular Skylab and Breakfast on Mars events have continued throughout 2018, and this year they’ve been joined in the calendar for the first time by Europe’s first Mobile Learning FabLab and the inaugural edition of the Teach on Mars Partner Forum, featuring the first annual Mobile Learning Awards. And 2018 also saw the second edition of the Mobile Learning Summer University, now a regular annual fixture under the Cote d’Azur sunshine.

The greatest show(s) on Earth! Teach on Mars is a regular and active participant in trade shows, conferences and industry events throughout France, and 2018 was no exception. This year also saw the red-and-white rocket extending its orbit farther and farther into new and uncharted territory – landing in Spain, Luxembourg, London …… and even Las Vegas! Who knows where it will touch down in 2019?

Finally, for you fans of numbers out there – 2018 at Teach on Mars was also 4104 litres of coffee drunk, 1456 sandwiches swallowed on the run between meetings, 155 chewed pens and 153 809 YouTube renditions of the great David Bowie’s Life On Mars.

So there you have it – 2018 in a couple of paragraphs and a couple of minutes! It’s been a wild and exciting ride, and Teach on Mars has loved every moment of it shared with you. Happy holidays to all Teach on Mars clients and partners, and see you all in 2019 for yet more intergalactic adventures!

The end of the year is nigh… but there’s no peace for the wicked, and for the start-up from Sophia-Antipolis, absolutely no question of letting the rocket engines cool off!

Teach on Mars to speak at CEW on November 22, 2018

Teach on Mars to speak at CEW on November 22, 2018

On 22 November, at a thematic breakfast organized by the CEW, Teach on Mars will join representatives from QVC, MAC, DACO, Cm Smart Connect and Perfumist for a round table on issues related to the digitalization of the retail industry.

Cosmetic Executive Women

Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) is a trade organization for the cosmetics, fragrance and personal care industry. It is the world’s leading international network of beauty professionals.
When it was created in 1954, the CEW was originally intended to support women’s careers in the beauty industry; today, it welcomes all professionals in the sector by promoting career development and fulfilment for any individual or group within the community.

Digital in retail

On November 22 the CEW will bring together iconic brands from the cosmetics and beauty sector along with major players from the tech industry to discuss the topic “the new retail landscape: digital, of course, but human above all.” The panel and participants will be able to explore some of the fundamental questions that retailers are asking themselves today. Questions that are pushing them to rethink the whole organization and role of their shopfloor teams and infrastructures. Questions like : “How can we re-engineer the customer experience we offer at the point of sale?”; “What is the next game-changing tool for boosting salesperson performance and customer satisfaction?” and “Is digital the friend or the foe of the brick-and-mortar store?”.

Tiphaine Duchet, VP Operations at Teach on Mars, and in charge of the start-up’s development in the Luxury, Retail and Cosmetics sectors, will be sharing her experience and perspective on the complex but potentially magical challenge of using mobile-first digital technology to enhance and add value to the product training process.

If you wish to participate in this breakfast event, you can register using the payment form (75 €) here!
We hope to see at 8.30 am on November 22 at the Swedish Circle, 242 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris
