Our Mission


We are passionate about transforming the virtual classroom and simplifying the user experience.


Our focus is to give developers the opportunity to combine an app-like collaborative experience with their existing web-based LMS into a unified virtual classroom interface.


We are constantly adapting to stay on the forefront of emerging technologies to ensure a modernized learning environment, fusing current educational systems with trusted reimagined technology.

Our Story

From customizable, branded video conferencing to completely interactive virtual classrooms, we’re dedicated to delivering an integratable, easy-to-use synchronous video platform.

Video conferencing technology with components for the web has been around for a long time. The recent rise of video conferencing and its success is evidence of the need for solutions that just work. However, it’s inherently difficult to build your own real-time collaboration and video platform in a secure and user-friendly way that works everywhere.

This is how Lumicademy makes a difference.

Many companies have tried to integrate synchronous collaboration into their own product or service using off-the-shelf web components and are not successful.

Therefore, most companies simply launch into existing video conferencing products. By doing this, they relinquish the opportunity to provide a smooth, seamless solution that is integrated with their product offering. This also means that any financial benefit of this experience is transferred to the video conferencing provider.

Lumicademy changes this.

  • What if a company wanted to build their own solution, with complete control of all aspects of security and privacy?
  • What if simple APIs could manage every aspect of the solution?
  • Something that would not just carry your brand name and feel, but actually create a cohesive experience integrated with your own product or service?

This is why we started Lumicademy.

To help companies expand the reach of their own product or service with a synchronous collaboration experience that enhances communication in a secure environment and suits their corporate requirements.

We do not offer generic, one-size-fits-all video conferencing. Lumicademy delivers a platform where our customers can integrate these technologies easily and quickly — and more importantly — own them, brand them and control them.

Imagine and build positive and sustainable tools for a better and brighter learning future.

Behind the Desk

Our experienced team of engineers and designers bring you the next generation of virtual online learning. We help organizations add dynamic, live video conferencing to their training and learning solutions.
