Airbase is a platform enabling any premises to host courses of learning. It supports three user categories: hosts, who have premises for which course provision offers increased social and economic value; tutors, who can register to teach courses at nearby venues or travel destinations; and learners, who can chose a venue and course and register to attend and acquire or develop skills. Airbase – learn anywhere.
