Our vision to reimagine learning and challenge status quo is at the core of what we do. We task our teams to be brave, future focussed and embrace change to ensure we are at the forefront of online learning and to build sustainable competitive advantage for our partners.


OES continually explores, tests, evaluates and optimises new technologies and initiatives, to complement partner offerings and improve the student experience. We use best practice design thinking and sprint based processes, to make certain that decisions are made at pace and enhancements are made in increments allowing for tighter control and transparency.

OES believes that innovation must be more than just technological advancement. As a part of the SEEK Group, a Forbes “Top 20 Most Innovative Companies Globally”, OES is able to utilise best-of-breed online capability, partner-preferred technologies and behavioural insights to shape and tailor course offerings to the online learning environment.

Constant course evolution

OES has experience in adaptive learning technologies, competency based learning, personalised learning options, remote proctoring of exams, website analytics, simulations, virtual reality, and gamification to evolve and innovate course offerings.

Strategic foresight

For the OES workforce, innovation is a process that encompasses ideation through to implementation. OES works with partners to identify key growth opportunities based on employment and industry trends as well as cultural and social course demands. Based on this information, OES provides recommendations for new course development as well as leadership regarding optimal launch strategies and timelines.

"Swinburne Online is a key part of Swinburne’s portfolio of innovative education offerings. Through our joint venture with Online Education Services, Swinburne has become a leading provider of online education. We have learned a lot about what students need in a digital learning environment, what motivates them, and how they learn. Through Swinburne Online we are able to provide access and flexibility to learners from diverse backgrounds, for whom on-campus study is often not an option.”
