Coggno Learning Management System Provides Educators and Subject Matter Experts with Better Options for Creation and Distribution
San Jose, CA - Coggno, Inc., a course creation toolkit and learning management system, has responded to the economic downturn and its effect on the public school system by offering free LMS service to all public schools, both in and outside California. The practice of creating multimedia learning material and distributing it via an LMS is being embraced by an increasing number of educators. Both teachers and subject matter experts are tapping into the online tools available to them, for both educational and professional objectives.
Educators are finding that one way to leverage their knowledge is by creating short lessons and/or whole courses and uploading them to the Coggno e-learning marketplace. Coggno’s accessible user interface and colorful tools provide a simple way for educators to create engaging courses and lessons--without requiring any outside tech help.
Online content and courseware are increasingly simple to create--and surveys show that they are no longer merely “fun additions” to the traditional classroom. In many cases, the inclusion of online content marks the difference between a decent course and an exceptional one.
Only a few years ago, most e-learning was little more than a lesser electronic version of face-to-face instruction. Now, online education is beginning to actually surpass the in-person versions. A recent 93-page report on online education conducted by SRI International for the Department of Education found that “On average, students in online learning conditions performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction.”
Simple and effective tools such as Coggno’s LMS have helped to make this finding a reality.
Coggno’s text tool, video tool, SCORM publisher, template tool, audio tool and assessment tools have allowed educators to very simply and quickly migrate e-learning material either for in-class use, provided via Coggno’s LMS, for publishing on Coggno’s e-learning marketplace, or for publishing on outside websites using Coggno’s syndication option. And choosing from Coggno’s applications such as BB FlashBack, Rapid Unison, and the Apple Podcast Producer, course creators can now capture and maintain learners’ interest with a variety of visually- and audibly-engaging learning material.
Podcasts and other visual and audio media such as videos and screen recordings provide students with feature-rich and engaging content. Podcasts can be used in many ways: to supplement and reinforce content, renew learning activities, announce changes, updates, and reminders, or as a way to distribute lectures to students.
A learning management system is an invaluable tool not only in creating and distributing content, but in tracking learners’ progress. Coggno’s LMS provides an organizational and educational tool that caters to the needs of all learners--especially visual learners who in traditional classrooms tend to grow tired of listening to educators lecture. Its suite of course development tools enables interactive learning that lends itself to differentiated instruction.
Coggno’s learning management system and e-learning marketplace provide educators and subject matter experts with all the tools necessary to create--for free--robust and easy-to-deploy courseware, for whatever audience the courseware creator has in mind.
Based in San Jose, CA, Coggno is an LMS/LCMS toolkit and marketplace which facilitates the transfer of intellectual property between course creators and those who wish to acquire it. Coggno designs and delivers online solutions for e-learning, training, assessments, and courseware for organizations, corporations, associations, academic institutions, and subject matter experts.
