Jigsaw - Learning that fits

Jigsaw - Learning that fits

e-Learning is our thing. Come on in and see the what, how and who.

The Long and Short of it


The long is that we design and implement learning programmes for employees, individuals and students.

  • We write and create e-learning courses.
  • We design blended learning programmes and interactive curricula.
  • We deliver a wide range of learning resources including online training platforms, mobile apps, interactive e-books, workbooks, animations and videos.

The short is that we figure out what people need to know to do their jobs better, and how to engage them so they take in information and act on it.

Jigsaw designs learning that fits their needs, and therefore those of your company. We focus on brilliant instructional design (ID) – the understanding of what makes human beings tick, and how to motivate them to develop and excel in education and work.

We understand it isn’t about us, or even about you. It’s about the people trying to learn stuff to do their jobs. Our programmes put them in control – allowing them to choose what, when, how, where and why they want to learn.

Our worldwide clients include start-ups and global giants DHL and The Open University. This year, more than 600,000 people worldwide are doing their jobs better thanks to us.

And we are proud to deliver all these big ideas with truly personal, small-town service.

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done...

Your learners – employees, students – are at the heart of everything we do. We work out what they want to improve and why; where, when and how they work and learn; and what they want to show for their efforts. Then we craft a journey to that destination. We develop entire programmes, but also offer storyboarding, instructional design, curricula and learning architecture services for any step along the way, depending on what a client needs.

Tallest Moodle expert

Researching, designing, polishing, developing, experimenting, checking, mapping, tweaking, moodling, thinking, learning, enjoying, challenging, sketching, storytelling, creating, smiling - all in a Jigsaw day.

Jigsaw’s founders, Elspeth and Mark Timmans, spent many years working in publishing, higher education, e-learning, and business analysis and training. We have now channelled our experience and that of our team into a unique approach: excellent instructional design – how people’s minds work – is the starting point, not the latest flashy technology.

We love collaborating closely with clients to deliver that ID through inspiring and inventive content and media.

No matter how big or small your organisation, and how complex the job, we are here to take care of you. We are straight-talking, creative, flexible, and pragmatic, and will sensitively juggle your different stakeholder needs.

When you call us, you speak to one of the experts who developed your programme, who can help you then and there. You won’t get put on hold or handed on.

We pride ourselves on our personal approach and the painstaking care we take over every aspect of your job.

...but I won’t take anything less
