About Yahki

After years of research and development, Yahki was launched in 2011 as a social network that offered its users powerful digital media mashup and publishing tools for everyday use. In 2013, Yahki was updated, established as a company and introduced to the education sector. Yahki has since been offered as a subscription service to school and higher education systems and is offered through regional business partners on a localised OEM basis, for example, Yahki is marketed in the Nordic region as ‘Create’ through business partners IST AB.

Yahki in education

Yahki provides the world’s first bridge between mainstream social media and a safe school or campus learning channel. Yahki allows each student, teacher and parent to easily collect, mash up and ‘channel’ posts safely to their moderated school network, and for authorised users to publish to their public network of friends, family and colleagues, all from one environment. There is no longer the need for isolated public social media environments and a separate school environment - Yahki is true to both. Unlike alternative teacher-student online environments, Yahki is authentic. Yahki does not feel like a ‘schooly’ portal. Yahki is a refreshingly real, moderated social media environment for learning. This energizes student and teachers as active, safely connected learners and producers in real-world settings.
