Our values

Founded on the desire to support first, sell later. Oppida’s core values are to:

Raise the bar

Oppida will publish your courses / programs to any learning management system or platform and develop comprehensive style guides to ensure consistency and excellent user experience.

Be human

We never forget that we are humans designing for humans. In our own individual ways, compassion is at the heart of everything we do at Oppida.

Foster inclusiveness

At the core of Oppida’s online education development process is our drive for equitable access. We encourage inclusivity by allowing ideas to flourish, integrating diverse perspectives, and encompassing individuals’ needs as we believe this is the foundation on which education can transform lives.

Embody an abundance mindset

Opportunities are plentiful and all individuals have the power to contribute meaningfully to our world. To do this, we create and work from a place of positivity at Oppida, allowing creativity to flow through us, fuelling our desire to learn, grow and evolve.

Trust the journey

In taking inspired action, knowing that persistence pays off, and aiming for progress, we know that excellence will follow. Oppida accepts that we are constantly evolving, improving, and acquiring knowledge upon our individualised journeys.

Meet our
team!

Our team are all highly skilled, passionate educators, project managers, creatives, and technicians with extensive experience in digital learning. We ooze creativity and have an eye for detail and quality!

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.
