Global Victoria EdTech Innovation Alliance

A research program for Victorian EdTech

The EdTech Innovation Alliance Program will see the activation of testbeds or pilots; run efficacy trials of Victorian EdTech products, in Australian and international education settings, in a structured formal framework; and share the findings with the broader community.

The program supports partnerships between Victorian EdTech companies, education institutions, and international organisations, and promote the efficacy of Victorian EdTech products for export growth.

The initiative is funded by the Victorian Government as part of the $33.4 million commitment to the short-term economic recovery of the international education sector, in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The program coordinates the cooperation between providers, education technology companies and academics to trial technologies that solve and enhance learning outcomes.

The program will establish Victoria as Australia’s education innovation hub which incorporates all the virtues of the triple-helix innovation model. This program will extend that model to include the efficacy and showcasing of innovation in the education sector that is an absolute prerequisite to large-scale education innovation.

We thank Global Victoria for their ongoing support of Australian EdTech.


This document provides an overview of the Global Victoria EdTech Innovation Alliance, the successful Innovation Sprint pilots, the types of EdTech solutions being trialled, the educational settings participating, and the key benefits of this type of program for EdTech companies, education institutions and the state of Victoria.

Designing an EdTech Efficacy Research Report - Cover - Global Victoria EdTech Innovation Alliance

Efficacy Whitepaper

This whitepaper explores evidence, efficacy and interpretation, framed as provocations, by expert researchers Professor Margaret Bearman, Deakin University, Professor Michael Henderson, Monash University and Professor Phillip Dawson, Deakin University.

The whitepaper was developed to guide EdTech companies and education providers considering designing, or participating in, an EdTech testbed research trial. It should act as a reference tool for developing a successful solution for the Australian education market.

Verso Learning

Verso’s Learning from Students platform addresses two significant challenges in K-12 education: how to collect timely, actionable feedback and evidence of impact from the classroom, and how to better support teachers to use that evidence to respond to student needs. 


Cadmus will explore the impact of implementing their solution — an online assessment for learning platform — on student outcomes, experience, and academic integrity.


Edalex will investigate the efficacy of personalised learner Evidence Records produced by the Credentialate platform., and its impact on employability outcomes. 

Maths Pathway

Maths Pathway’s Learning and Teaching model will test the extent to which cultural, societal and demographic differences impact the ability to deliver similar learning outcomes in the rest of the world.


MentorMatch will test the hypothesis that providing experienced, qualified, mentors, at scale through an EdTech platform, during an international student’s studies, will fill the void of not having social and professional networks in the foreign country.


Intellischool will focus on making data based on big timeframes useful for daily teaching decisions, as well as the resulting impact on the ways in which teachers plan for the personalisation of the learner experience.

Genix Ventures

Genix Ventures will deploy EXAMINA+, an end-to-end exam management platform, in three target-market institutions to determine the feasibility of greater global scaling.


Ziplet will explore how the solution can provide teachers with the tools and support to regularly gather student feedback for a data-informed approach. The aim is to improve student experience, learning outcomes and teacher practice.

Cahoot Learning - EduGrowth - Global Victoria EdTech Innovation Alliance

Cahoot Learning

Through a personalised learning experience, Cahoot Learning will investigate how their approach can impact learners in Australia and LATAM settings.

Program Governance Group

The role of the Program Governance Group is to provide strategic direction and leadership over the duration of the program.
