Signworld was designed and built up from scribbles on paper to doodles on a whiteboard to lines of code in a computer. Every stage in this process, from the curriculum to online learning strategies, was based on the unrivalled combined experience of Linda. The result is a simple, beautiful and clear learning experience for our users, where everything's uncomplicated and accessible with only a few clicks. It's user-centred learning that just works as soon as you start using it.
We feel passionately that there’s a need for a 21st century way of learning British Sign Language. We created Signworld's learning and teaching products out of more than 20 years’ experience of teaching BSL and devising successful teaching methods, using a deep knowledge of learners' needs and an excellent relationship with networks of BSL teachers across the UK.
