Following Oakley Capital’s acquisition of Seagull Maritime and Videotel, the group has affirmed its position as the world’s largest maritime eLearning provider and committed to invest more than US$30m over the next five years in new courseware and technology.

The funding will go towards new re-imagined courseware delivered on a consumer led platform experience to any device, using the latest technologies like micro learning and the most engaging methods and tools including gamification, virtual and augmented reality.

Seagull and Videotel will release selected content to each other’s platforms on the subject of seafarer mental health and resilience. These packages are designed to help seafarers to thrive at sea and ready themselves for the challenges they may face in their work and private lives.

“By working together rather than making our individual versions of the same topics, we believe we can add more of the things our learners enjoy such as high-end video, animation and greater interactivity,” said Roger Ringstad, managing director of Seagull Maritime.

Combining the expertise of their collective content teams, the group believe they will be able to offer unrivalled creativity and educational excellence in maritime. The group are currently in the process of selecting several topic areas to collaborate on.
