About us

Nordtouch is an innovative Finnish software company founded in 2012 in Espoo, Finland. We create easy-to-use digital solutions for modern learning environments. We believe in the importance of collaborative learning where students should be producing and contributing content together with other students as a part of their learning process. Additionally the technology should be a natural part of this process, not the main tool.

Our vision is to develop a new way of collaborative working and learning, where technology enables to more diverse interactions between students. We believe in modern technology solutions, where technology helps users to produce more creative, visual and more collaborative material.

For Publishers

Nordtouch introduces a new and inspiring environment for learning.

Learning material, a pedagogue and learning tools are the requirements for a successful learning experience of a student. Publishers contribute to the learning experience by providing the learning material, whereas teachers functions as the pedagogue in the process. To connect these stages, Flinga offers the learning tools, which engages the student to more active learning, making learning a more dynamic process.

Collaborative digital environment

In collaboration with others, the student will produce own content by uniting common thoughts and ideas. Furthermore Flinga allow students to simultaneously work, brainstorm and write down notes in groups. Flinga will revolutionize and enhance the way student study and the way they learn. By understanding, analyzing and producing the content themselves, students will gain and remember the material in another way than solely by studying the “traditional way”. Furthermore Flinga aims to inspire every student in the classroom to participate in classroom discussions and therefore help towards a more interactive learning environment among students.
