Cànan can with KTP
The Business Challenge
There is a significant requirement within native language communities in the UK to increase speaker numbers.
Cànan wanted to establish an in-house department that could develop multimedia software and production tools for the widespread communities of distance learners.
The KTP with Cànan covered many aspects of technology, from multimedia design to language learning, encapsulating many technological areas that can be transferred into the teaching of software engineering, multimedia and WWW development.
The KTP resulted in BubbleSpeak, an innovative templatebased content system that is simple to use, portable and platform independent.
Cànan gained a culture of innovation and access to new technologies, which raised its profile, generated a new lucrative market and embedded a practice of research and development.
Big companies can afford to have research and development
departments but small and medium operations do not have
the resources. The companies need the Associates because
they do not have the skills inhouse or the access to
equipment which we can provide. - Prof Bill Buchanan, Napier University
