OpnUp Limited was founded by Dr. Margaret Korosec. As founder and Chief Learning Strategist, Margaret uses her experience to implement successful digital learning strategies and facilitate change management for educational institutions. Margaret is passionate about transforming teaching and learning through digital and online modalities. She uses this drive to manage and coordinate the design and development of technology-enhanced learning projects as well as fully online courses and programmes.
This isn't a purely theoretical approach; it's one based on years of experience. Margaret holds leadership and teaching positions in secondary schools (including Hymers College, Hull), postsecondary institutions (Western Governors University, USA, and University of Hull, UK), and in continuing education environments where implementation of technology-enhanced learning was paired with organisational change and performance improvement strategies. She is currently Head of Digital & Enterprise Learning Solutions at the University of Derby Online Learning.
Margaret earned her MA Ed. in Adult Instruction and Performance Improvement from the University of Michigan - Dearborn, and she is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in the UK. Margaret earned her PhD at the University of Hull. Her PhD research focused on the perceptions and practices of individuals facilitating technology-enhanced learning change in relation to one university's strategic intent.
OpnUp's mission is to open hearts and minds to eLearning and digital education. In this quest, OpnUp provides consulting services to organisations who are ready to extend the student experience and embrace digital and online technologies. Read more about how we approach digital education.
OpnUp has developed processes and tools to enable change in organisations embarking on the path of improving or introducing eLearning. Learn more about how we work with institutions to facilitate change management.
OpnUp collaborates closely with open educational resource (OER) communities and innovative educational resource providers. As educators ourselves, we identified the need for supporting the development of custom online platforms as well as leveraging an institution's own virtual learning environment. In the interest of attracting and retaining students and activating learning analytics for continuous improvement, we help instructors and academics teach and learn in an online environment. Find out how OpnUp develops online teaching approaches that work.
OpnUp can connect educators with relevant and successful online resources and tools for delivery to students or to support professional development. See how we leverage the online tools that are best for each institution to prime students and teachers alike for success.
