In partnership with two leading Dutch universities, Sketchdrive is on a mission to amplify learning beyond the classroom. Founded on the principles of ‘learning by doing’ we created an online platform for visual interaction.

Visual interaction

We are interacting with visual content online in more ways than ever before, yet most online learning platforms fail to utilize visual work to enhance student performance.

Sketchdrive is an interactive tool to easily share, view and discuss visual work online. Drive curiousity, exploration and conversation to augment the learning experience in your course.

Learn by doing

Skills cannot be trained by simply watching videos. Especially in creative disciplines such as photography, design or architecture, making and reflecting are fundamental to the overall learning experience. What if you want learners to sketch out their ideas or take pictures to illustrate their point of view?

Use Sketchdrive to support active learning with hands-on assignments and easily monitor and review student progress and results.


Collaborative learning

Isolation and self-motivation are some of the biggest challenges facing online learners today. To prevent dropout you need to activate your course community and trigger interaction.

The dynamic activity feed in Sketchdrive invites learners to interact and learn together increasing your course completion rates!

About us

Sketchdrive was founded by Martijn van de Wiel and Marten de Jong, two Dutch creative professional educators in design and architecture. Frustrated with the non-visual nature of most online learning platforms they decided to build their own and founded Sketchdrive to unlock creativity and amplify learning beyond the classroom!
