How it works

candena’s multi-award winning collaborative learning concept is engineered to nurture human interaction by providing online learning experiences grounded on the pillars of peer-to-peer learning, team work, a problem based approach and mentoring.


Within the framework of an online course, individual members of your learning community come together in teams to tackle challenges collectively, cultivating communication skills, teamwork and quantitative reasoning. Participants also engage in the learning community at large, enriching their skills and knowledge while exchanging feedback with their peers. Optionally, a trained staff of didactic personnel (tutors, mentors, teachers) can give participants input on relevant topics, supporting teams with feedback and reviewing their work.


Learning is also embedded in a real-world context because our courses use a problem-based learning approach by presenting teams with a series of successive assignments that gradually build up their skills. This allows the transfer of the newly developed skills towards a specific real world problem.
