Radium is the next evolution in content management. After surveying the market, we found that both current online learning and media platforms need to do more to meet business needs. Unicorn developed Radium as a platform to empower organizations to bring rich media content online in meaningful and impactful ways.

Dynamic and Personalized Content

Most online learning platforms focus on video courses as the singular vehicle for learning. Unicorn believes that instructors should be able to tailor the learning process for individual students based on their specific goals. Radium achieves this by offering a combination of video courses, evergreen content that admins can organize into routines, and online coaching sessions, allowing instructors to create a personalized learning regimen for their students.


  • Organize content into video libraries and use as the building blocks for routines.
  • Create routines and customize them for individual students based on their specific goals.
  • Assign routines on a schedule and track student progress. 
  • Create recurring surveys to assess student goals, skill levels, learning styles, and comprehension.
  • Publish insights, video blogs, and motivational content in a feed to increase engagement.
  • Reach students directly with one-on-one video instruction that subscribers can pay for by the minute.
  • Plug-ins to extend functionality and integrate with third party services (zoom, mailing lists, etc.).

Meaningful Instructor-Student Interaction

Students often come to online learning platforms seeking access and engagement with a specific instructor. In many cases, they encounter video content recorded months or years earlier without direct interaction with anyone besides other students. Radium encourages instructors to interact one-on-one with their students through online video messaging and live coaching while continuing to provide tools to leverage their time.


  • Messaging via text or video allows instructors and students to communicate most effectively for learning.
  • Students can post questions and comments at any time during the learning process. Every message can be responded to in public or taken to a private conversation.
  • Helpful responses to student questions, whether text or video, can be published in a video library or FAQ for the benefit of future participants.
  • Students can schedule live one-on-one video coaching sessions when additional assistance is needed based on instructor availability.
  • When an instructor’s time is limited, a team of trained coaches can be assigned to individual students to respond to questions and provide personalized support.

Flexible Payments and Subscriptions

In too many instances, online education platforms focus on producing one-off courses that instructors can sell to leverage their time. This model encourages instructors to invest in up-front production and focus on sales and marketing while ignoring critical success metrics like completion rates and engagement.

Without sacrificing one-time payments, Radium promotes multi-tiered memberships that change the success metric from sales to retention. By giving instructors the tools to create instructional content in various formats and backing this up with deep metrics on usage and engagement, Radium empowers instructors to focus on student success instead of worrying about generating new sales every month.


  • Multi-tiered subscription models allow instructors to create membership packages for all interest levels.
  • All content may be assigned by membership levels, even within a product. For example, the first three course modules can be offered for free and then require a membership to continue.
  • Single payments can be added to any product or service, allowing instructors to sell one-off content or one-on-one instruction.
  • Deep metrics on student usage and engagement allow success measurement.
  • Built-in intelligence can alert instructors to students who are not engaged and may need additional motivation or instruction.

Best Practices, Built-In

Many instructors want an online component to their teaching. Still, they are overwhelmed by the idea of organizing their content into an online offering. While various platforms make creating online courses easy, instructors must still get started.

One of the goals of the Radium platform is to leverage our years of experience in online learning to give instructors a leg up in building and sustaining a successful online education program.

Built-in best practices include: 

  • Modeling content around a clearly defined success path facilitates the prevention of overwhelm by limiting the amount of content that is initially accessible.
  • Maintaining a steady stream of new content through scheduling and live streaming.
  • Focusing on retention by engaging with students directly.

Unicorn also works directly with our partners to integrate proprietary e-learning technologies and customize the user experience for their audience’s specific needs.
