Core Strengths

CAPDM Ltd. has two core strengths:


  1. Developing successful world-class online distance learning programmes.
  2. Digitally native cross-platform publishing using single-source production methods and open standards.

We know what is needed to design, develop, launch, market and sustain commercial programmes of online distance learning. Our biggest success to date has been the Edinburgh Business School MBA programme, which with 10,335 students enrolled in 2012 is the largest online MBA programme in the World (source FT.COM). We have also developed programmes for clients based in Europe and the USA.

Using our holistic single-source publishing approach and open standards like XML, we have digitally published more than 200 complete courses; some of them in English, Spanish, Flemish, Chinese and Arabic. We have also developed and operated the custom translation and content management systems that keep many of those versions synchronised. These courses generate in excess of £10m per annum for our customers, one of whom as a result has achieved two UK Queen’s Awards for Export.

These strengths combined make us quite distinct. They also make us an ideal production partner for learning providers.
