A Nation Learns with Hwb

A Nation Learns with Hwb

It is with huge pleasure that we are able to announce that CDSM Interactive has been re-contracted to design, develop and deliver Hwb, the National Digital Learning Platform, to all schools in Wales for another 3 years.

Working closely with Welsh Government colleagues over the past two and a half years we’ve built a strong foundation, giving Wales’s teachers free access to a range of world class services including: digital content repositories, online collaborative spaces, virtual classrooms, cutting edge content authoring software and real-time collaborative assessment tools.


The response from both practitioners and learners has been overwhelming. Usage and engagement levels are unprecedented. It is with immense pride that Wales is leading the way in the implementation of a cohesive, nationwide digital learning approach. In the last twelve months alone, an additional one hundred thousand users have logged on and actively used Hwb services. Logins per month have tripled to a staggering three hundred and seventy thousand with a whopping one and three quarter million pages viewed in October alone. Teachers in Wales have created over sixteen hundred online collaborative spaces (Networks) covering a vast range of subjects and disciplines. Outstanding!


Needless to say, we’re overjoyed by the levels of participation. It is exactly what we set out to achieve when we first started working with Welsh Government in 2014. However, the foundation we’ve built is exactly that, a foundation. There is so much more to come and we’re both excited and impatient to share our plans with you, but that’s for another blog.

We’re looking forward to the next three years with a genuine enthusiasm and ambition to support and contribute to the development of children and young people in Wales


If you have any comments, suggestions or questions about Hwb, we’d love to hear from you. After all, we’re a Swansea-based company full of parents of children living and learning in Wales. Hwb’s success is our success.

Hwyl! CDSM
