Uber driver partner interactive video training is now available on TappnEd

With the explosive growth in tech companies like Uber, Lyft and AirBnB there has been a commensurate growth in knowledge support industries that service the massive partner network of these organisations.

Uber’s growth has seen a huge surge in demand by drivers for knowledge on how to best use and beat the system – from simple “hacks” to more in-depth “how to make money” videos. These have mostly been made by “driver partners” which are then published on independent websites, social media and video platforms like YouTube, but there has been little effort at utilising new tech or adult learning concepts. Its’ all been a bit “Just-In-Time”…

Tips, tricks, making money, minimising mistakes, set up and running quickly with Uber interactive video training.

22 lessons on all things an Uber driver needs to learn?!?! What a bargain!


Perhaps it’s part of Uber’s strategy NOT to invest in the latest eLearning tools or methods – perhaps an aversion to being accused of having driver “employees” and not, “driver partners” (resulting in class action suites) – or maybe Uber just don’t think proper training will reduce their driver churn and increase quality of service (and profit).

In any case WE at TappnEd are excited to have on board an experienced Uber driver instructor, The Rideshare Emperor, who has created an amazing interactive Uber driver video course to fill that gap.

Ultimate Uber Driver Course Description on TappnEd.com

As a world first, TappnEd has The Ultimate Uber Driver Training Course – a comprehensive interactive video training resource for prospective and new Uber drivers which trains, assesses and validates all things (unofficially) Uber.



The course allows prospective and current  Uber drivers to learn about the benefits and disadvantages of the Uber partner driver business model, costs involved in setting up your operation, how to save money…and make money, detailed analysis of trip revenue activity, how to increase profitability, tips tricks and hacks, surge pricing and how to take advantage of it, dealing with problems, and all within the confines of an interactive video experience able to be viewed on any device.

There’s even a dog story!

Learners can interact in-video through a gamified multiple choice assessment model; participate in interactive video polls and tap through to additional video resources, Uber news and official Uber Support.

They can even register as a new Uber driver by tapping on the bottom iFrame footer which breaks out into a new tab.

The new tab is an Uber registration page and if they make a certain number of trips then the driver who supplied the link gets a cash reward – which can range from as little as $50 to as much as $500. Not a bad pay check for a simple referral!

In-videoi interactive questions and answers reinforce learning

Interactive “in-video” questions and answers reinforce learning – no cognitive overload!

Since TappnEd works on any device the video and interaction will play on smartphones in both portrait and landscape mode.

Polls can be taken even inside the video and display a pie chart of responses for the learner.

Surf Life Saving Australia to use TappnEd mLearning interactive video courses for skills maintenance refresher training

Sydney, Australia Wednesday 5th October 2016: TappnEd is proud to announce Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) will be using the TappnEd mLearning interactive video platform as part of its emphasis on innovation in learning and education.

TappnEd’s patented video platform will allow SLSA’s members to view, engage and test themselves with fully interactive SLSA training videos on smartphones, tablets and desktops.

SLSA members can use the TappnEd interactive video platform for content and skills refresher training prior to their annual club organised skills maintenance programs, which are conducted in preparation for the start of the surf lifesaving season, and can do so on nearly any device, any time and from any location with internet access. SLSA Bulletin 01/16-17 http://www.surflifesaving.com.au/news/slsa-bulletin-new-skills-maintenance-tools/bulletin-01-16-17-new-skills-maintenance-tools.pdf

Bronze Medallion training videos currently used as training aids have been used in this trial program where refresher questions are all contained within the video frame as an overlay on the paused video content with smart phones or tablets adjusting dynamically to portrait or landscape orientation. No third-party app downloads are necessary as the system uses standard browsers and responsive design technology to deliver the interactive video question and answers.

TappnEd allows educators to match learning points with interactive questions immediately after each other to test and reinforce knowledge. Sometimes too many learning points and questions bunched together can saturate the learner with information which can produce an effect called “cognitive overload”. In order to make the interactive video lessons relevant, questions are posed to the learner after individual learning points, thus avoiding the potential for cognitive overload whilst increasing learner engagement and knowledge retention.

“Part of the challenge with this project was ensuring that the refresher questions and answers would be legible when viewed inside the video frame on a smaller device, like a smart phone, yet still would retain the flexibility of responsive multi-device viewing.” – Sam Wilson TappnEd project co-ordinator.

Now the challenge of limited device choice and proprietary technology dependence has been overcome, TappnEd can roll out interactive video learning and knowledge validation to any device. In the past many organisations used classroom-based LMS systems, typically Adobe Flash, but this limited the learner to only learning on a PC, within class time and at that location. With TappnEd mLearning the process of education and training can be conducted 24/7, with access from a smart phones, tablets and desktop all year-round.

“SLSA recognised the advantages of a ‘mobile first’ capability that enables members to conduct self-validation of existing or new knowledge, prior to their formal skills maintenance activity. We worked with the TappnEd team to ensure the interactive questions mapped to the course material and provided a useful method of easing the learner back into the SLSA mindset, whilst adhering to the national SLSA education standards.” – Pamela Simon, SLSA Learning and Development Manager.

TappnEd utilises standard browser based technology with the main system hosted on Amazon Web Services facility in Sydney, Australia (a division of Amazon NASDAQ: AMZN).

“We chose to use Amazon Web Services as our hosting provider as it represented the most flexible and widest variety of complementing technologies to support our video-specific platform.” – Sam Wilson, CEO of Urban Marketing, the parent company of TappnEd.

“Its been a long journey, starting with the support of the NSW Government Department of Innovation and Industry, to the feedback and partnering with SLSA, through to the courses we see today. It’s now a no-brainer for Educators to use TappnEd to push video learning to smart phones.” – John Forrester COO of Urban Marketing.
