What is the Memarden?
Memarden is an e-learning platform that allows teachers (and students) to create lessons in minutes, then automatically converts them into games and activities.
Our idea is that technology should not overpower the voice of the teacher – it should enhance it. In order to do that, teachers have to be able to create lessons that align with their face-to-face teaching in minutes.
It is also that we want to encourage students to create their own lessons, gain confidence as others take their content in games and activities and gain a passion for their topics that leads them to what they want to do with their lives.
What Products/services do you provide?
Memarden is an e-learning platform that gamifies lessons. A teacher or student can create a lesson with video, audio, text and images, in 5-15 minutes.
Memarden automatically converts lessons into games and activities. It also reports on student engagement and results and has a safe internal social network.
It runs on PCs and Macs, iOS and Android phones, tablets, SmartBoards, and even Dance Pads.

How did you come up with your company name?
Memarden is a new word in all languages. Our dream is of a new global way of learning, so we created a name that will grow its own meaning in each new language.
Memarden was created from two words:
Meme is an idea that spreads from person to person and culture to culture. Memes define cultures, and memes help people live better lives. Creating fire is a meme, and voting for leaders is a meme.
Garden is a place where beautiful and useful things thrive and grow together in a riot of color and scent and sounds
Memarden is a place where the ideas from around the world can grow and thrive, where the best ideas can rise to the top and be taught and learned for the betterment of all.
