Firm in £2 million plus deal

A Halifax firm working in the education sector has secured a deal worth more than £2 million.

Frog, based at Dean Clough, has acquired a 51 per cent stake in i-education - which deals in games based revision and assessment and created the “I Am Learning” platform.

The “I Am Learning” assessment software will be at the heart of Frog’s learning programmes and marks Frog’s move towards assessment in teaching and learning.

Features of the “I am Learning” software will also be available across all of Malaysia’s 10,000 state schools after the Malaysian Ministry of Education (MOE) selected Frog to provide its learning platform to every school.

The acquisition of i-education is one of several recent steps Frog has taken towards further improving its internationally acclaimed educational technology.

They include the appointment of Alistair Smith as Education Director, responsible for product development for the UK and international markets.

Gareth Davies, Managing Director of Frog, says, “Assessment is a key focus for Frog at the moment and I am Learning is a vital part of our strategy going forward as we head towards a fully integrated assessment platform for our customers.”
