The platform provide educational materials for students, teachers, and schools to increase ocean and water literacy. These materials include basic knowledge on ocean and water topics and are suitable for primary and secondary school levels.

Schools are able to develop projects in line with their sustainability goals. These projects are uploaded and monitored on the platform. The platform can be used to track the progress and success of projects.

The platform is developed on an open-source software as a learning and education management system. It facilitates students’ and teachers’ access to educational materials and activities and enhance the learning experience.

The platform is able to visualize the defined criteria, provide data control and data entry. This allows principals, teachers, and parents to track students’ progress.

Students and schools are included in the scoring algorithm as they join the platform. In addition, the gamification system makes it more interesting by awarding badges and certificates to students.

The platform is used to organize international public voting and select projects. This increases public participation and interaction.

The platform will continue running for 5 years after the project delivery date. This will support sustainability goals on a long-term basis.

The platform and materials is open to everyone, but only authorized users can comment or interact within the platform on relevant project documents.
