Coggno Provides Eco-Friendly and Economical Learning Management System
Coggno, a software company that specializes in online learning applications, provides an exciting and eco-friendly learning management system (LMS). With Coggno’s robust and lightweight LMS, all course creation, distribution and deployment is provided online, offering users an efficient, paperless elearning experience.
Coggno’s LMS tools such as text, audio, assessment, quiz, video, and Apple podcast producer create a virtual classroom with minimal dependence on extra hardware and equipment.
In the electronics industry, everyone is thinking smaller and more lightweight. Slim and miniscule models are trendy, but also smart. One could say they are a part of a growing anti-waste revolution in the tech world.
And with increased use of internet-based programs and software, the need for the latest computer model or other hardware is no longer as pressing--all the tools a student needs to access an online course are there on the web. Practically any computer will do, with minimal required hardware.
Coggno’s course creation toolkit, courseware syndication, and online training courses are all completely online.
Hosting training on Coggno’s LMS helps minimize the amount of waste that comes out of an organization. Training doesn’t have to be a consumptive or complicated enterprise. With its paperless courses and simple user interface, Coggno offers organizations a chance to cut down not only on costs, but on the extra material that was once involved in training programs.
With Coggno’s video tools and integration with BB FlashBack’s Screen Recording feature, traditional training methods that involved video tapes or DVDs for demos are no longer necessary.
Organizations investing in Web 2.0 learning tools and online training are part of a global movement of collaborative education. But organizations using online learning systems are also responding to a global call for greener policies and practices.
Unfortunately, the ramifications of an e-wasteful society often fall on the shoulders of developing nations. For example Bolivia, for centuries exploited for its precious metals, is now found to be cursed with another coveted raw material: lithium. Lithium carbonate is used in hardware, in laptop and cell phone batteries.
The EPA estimates that the industry recycles 60 million electronics products a year, most of which contain toxic materials and are exported to developing countries.
In 2008 alone, Hong Kong intercepted and returned 41 ship containers that had come from U.S. ports. The ship containers carried tons of illegal electronics waste from the U.S.. By intercepting the ships and sending them back, Hong Kong prevented attempts by American companies to dump 1.4 million pounds of broken TVs or computer monitors overseas and an estimated 82,000 pounds of lead, a known toxin, in the items.
But in other areas, the Web 2.0 movement is seeing hints of green. For example, many pulp and paper companies are finding it harder to stay alive, partly due to the increase in emailing, internet reading materials, online courseware, etc.
LMSs like Coggno help organizations help the world. Within its robust and paperless learning system, Coggno offers tools like the text, assessment, word bank and quiz functions. Traditional assessment methods involving large amounts of paper are no longer necessary.
Linked to Coggno’s eco-friendliness is another benefit--the convenient, lightweight and simple-to-use system that its LMS provides trainers and students. Learning management systems like Coggno continue to contribute to a new global system that rejects the destructive cycle of e-waste that has historically dominated the electronics industry.
