Mindset Network develops and produces high quality, contextually-relevant educational content for distribution through video, computer-based multimedia and print platforms in South Africa. The content is developed in accordance with South Africa’s Curriculum Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS), so is aligned with and relevant to existing school curriculum. 

Mindset's educational materials target students and teachers in grades 10, 11, and 12 and are divided between classroom resources and "Learn Xtra" revision notes. Classroom resources take on a cumulative approach and span subjects such as math, science, economics, information technology and English. Learn Xtra revision notes highlight important concepts, summarize material, and provide practice examples in math, science, accounting, and geography.

All educational materials are available from Mindset Learn and on Mindset's Youtube channel, and can be used in a variety of different contexts and locations, whether it be in classrooms, tutoring centers, or at home. To enhance teacher and student usability, videos are supplemented with PDF notes and computer-based interactive resources, and all materials are also available in DVD or book format for a fee. Currently, materials reach televisions and computers in some 3.5 million homes across South Africa.

Mindset Learn also harnesses the power of social learning through encouraging a high level of interaction on its Facebook page, where learners can post problematic questions that have arisen during study. Questions are responded to by Mindset experts within 48 hours, but often another user provides the answer this is even possible. This shared learning experience has no geographical or temporal boundaries, giving learners a chance to share experiences and knowledge, and is also completely free of cost.
