Collaborative workers

We want to inspire students, build their knowledge and skills for the many challenges we face today and tomorrow's plethora of solution opportunities. In order for DSSL to achieve this, we need a diverse, collaborative team of workers to build and manage the Hyperconnected Student Learning Environment (HSLE) and populate its programmes with rich, micro-accrediting, digital content.

Our Future

Hyperconnected World Training & Education

The premium campus-based centralised model of present-day higher education / universities learning is no longer sustainable as debt increases and degree student satisfaction wane. We can disrupt this decline with our highly motivated global HSLE team that consists of university lecturers, subject matter experts, practitioners and technologists who will collectively deliver cost-effective and engaging online accredited CPPD and HE modules in a digital format that crafts together a series of 15-minute VARK sessions by using a powerful, creative ACTIVE HSLE framework.


We have engineered an online micro-accrediting framework for delivery of high-quality online digital HE /professional development content bridging DevOps and Cloud services with the intent to create 6 first degree programmes.  It has taken 3 years of research to resolve many aspects of the HSLE framework, but the process is now ready for development (TRL 6 – Technology demonstrated in a relevant environment (industrially relevant environment in the case of our key HSLE enabling technologies) and rapidly deployed (TRL 9 - Actual system to be proven as an operational HSLE). 

Micro-accreditation in Education

As education becomes more diversified, democratised, decentralised and disintermediated, we still need to maintain reputation, trust in certification, and proof of learning. The increased focus on relevance and employability may also push us in this direction, as we also need more transparency. Distributed Ledger Technologies like Blockchain could provide just such a system: a massive open, online, secure database. Our HSLE will deliver to every corner of our Hyperconnected World accredited CPPD and Degree content with Micro-accreditation (badged learning) taking place through DLT, allowing for the easy validation, transfer of skills and credentials.
