October has been full of more treats than tricks for us at CookiesHQ. Let’s take a look at what’s been happening…
BBC Maestro is live - An e-learning platform with a celebrity twist
Keeping quiet about this one has been a challenge, but we’re so excited to announce the launch BBC Maestro this month. Exactly a year ago we were approached Gregory Roekens and Michael Levine, the team behind successful fitness app Get Fit with Davina. They recognised the potential in building on the dual power of celebrity and the trend for self-directed, self-paced learning from experts – and this was before we were all stuck at home!
We leapt at the chance to help bring their vision to life and the team have been working hard over the last few months to deliver this exciting new platform. You can learn to sing with Gary Barlow, write with David Walliams or even cook with Marco Pierre White – all from the comfort of your own home!
With inspiring new courses lined up to be added soon, delivered by much-loved figures such as Malorie Blackman, Peter Jones and Helena Bonham Carter, we recommend you watch this space.
Say Yuup this Christmas
It might have only launched last month, but we’ve been hard at work building new features for Yuup – the uniquely Bristolian marketplace for experiences. You can now leave reviews for experiences you’ve purchased, and create wishlists to share with friends and family. Just in time to drop those Christmas hints!
A big win for A Little Hangover!
Comedy short A Little Hangover, is one of the first independent films produced on the Stornaway interactive video platform. And it has just won its first award at the Independent Shorts Awards! We’re over the moon for the team and can imagine there were a few more little hangovers after those celebrations!
