What’s the difference between an online training course and a webinar?

Watching a webinar is simply like watching a video.  Online training, however, is interactive, self-paced and user-driven, keeping the learner actively engaged.  Most online courses teach the learner through a combination of video, voiceover, and PowerPoint, measuring the learner’s comprehension of the course material through periodic knowledge checks.


How long are courses available for?  

Generally, courses are available for multiple views between one and two years.


What is the length of the courses?

The courses vary in length.  Some can be completed within 30 minutes and others take 8 or more hours to complete.  You can view course specifics by clicking on an individual course title within our Marketplace.

Do the courses have any extra material to print or download?

Each course varies, but some courses do have course material to download.


How do you select Content Providers?  Is there a screening process?

For the past several years and thru today, Coggno has been making partnerships with experts in the fields of HR/Compliance, Safety, Business Management, Software, Social Media and more.  These experts fill the Coggno marketplace with quality content, which we then make available to you through our syndication partners.  We welcome your feedback on courses by clicking on an individual course title within our Marketplace and selecting “Reviews.”


As an employer, can I buy one course and share it among my staff?

Online training courses are produced to train individual learners and to show that they comprehend the material by successfully completing a series of quizzes.  Many courses serve to comply with various state and federal regulations and/or guidelines, and as such, employers should measure the risk or liability of not training their employees individually. 


As an employer, how do I distribute courses to my employees? 

Courses can be distributed directly to your employees via Coggno’s Learning Kiosk or Learning Management System.   Either way, employers have the ability to monitor, track, and report on their employees training in real-time. Click here to learn more about the LMS and Training Place / Kiosk.


Are certificates given at the completion of a course?   

The majority of the courses offer a “Certificate of Completion” once an employee successfully completes the course.  This certificate is from the expert content creator of the course material and is printable.


Are there Continuing Education Unit/Credit Courses (CEU’s/CEC’s)? 

Many licensed professions require CEU’s for the professional to maintain his/her license.  There are several courses available with CEU’s/CEC’s that cover Real Estate, Dentistry, and Nursing.
