At Oppida, we believe in creating dynamic learning environments through advanced learning management systems which hook your students in.
My name is Bianca Raby and I'm the Founder and CEO of Oppida. I have over 16 years experience working in education and my career began as a k-12 teacher. In my late 20s I retrained in business through a gruelling MBA at Melbourne business school an experience that set the stage for my next major step in life, founding Oppida. I launched Oppida in to better support other organisations to design and develop high quality digital learning.
As an experienced learning designer project manager and educational technologist myself, I saw a need to unpack what it really takes to design and develop and deliver world-class online programs. To date I have lead Oppida to serve over 20 unique clients by designing developing migrating publishing or enhancing their online courses.
In addition, in 2020 I spearheaded the decision for Oppida's investment in a world-class content production studio to lead the way in quality educational video production.
Oppida strives to practice what we preach so I personally embarked on learning how to produce the highest quality video content from pre-production production and post-production at the same time getting myself used to being on camera.
I'm so proud of the team we have built at Oppida and the talented work they continue to do for our clients daily. My desire is that by working with Oppida each client comes away much more informed of your complexities of education delivery in the digital age.
“Oppida was instrumental in ANZSOG’s successful pivot to online learning, necessitated by the global pandemic in 2019. Through Oppida’s partnership with ANZSOG, we have been able to redesign every subject to ensure a highly interactive, engaging and contemporary experience for learners. We have particularly valued the responsiveness and support that Oppida has provided our organisation. Through their partnership, our staff have been empowered to grow in capability and understanding of blended and online learning, to the point where we are confident operators in this space.”
“Oppida were a game changer for our organisation. They guided us through change and delivered us to a new outlook, one which places EEV in a position we’ve never been in before: to have the ability to deliver online resources. This has made us, for the first time in our 40-year history, truly connected to our members across all parts of Victoria. Oppida made this happen because they have talented people, a “change is achievable” mindset and the ability to take people on the journey.”
“Through our experiences with using Canvas as an LMS to support our face-to-face training, we sought feedback from students and trainers to identify opportunities for improvement in the products that we had created. We engaged Oppida to help us with this project and they were able to accurately interpret this feedback in order to address some challenges our stakeholders were experiencing. They did this in a timely manner and the end result has been a much improved learning experience for both learners and trainers”.
