Coggno’s LMS Training Marketplace has just become a more interactive and convenient place to visit. Visiting the site, one first notices that the layout of the Marketplace has been completely redesigned. Does layout matter? you may ask.
When searching for just about anything worth purchasing, layout can be a deciding factor in whether or not customers can find what they are looking for.
For example, say you’re in the market for a new pair of shoes. A shoe store that offers a wide variety of shoes and a simple way of browsing its selection will be more successful than a store whose shoes are piled on a sales rack, or a store lacking in sales representatives, or without a very good shoe selection in the first place.
In the same way, an LMS course provider that lists available learning content in a way that is clear, convenient and easy to browse will be likelier to facilitate connections between courseware authors and individuals seeking courseware.
With this goal of effecting more connections in mind, Coggno has recently announced the launching of its newly redesigned Training Marketplace. Coggno’s new Training Marketplace will highlight courses and enhance their presence and optimization on the web, as well as display graphics for each course.
In the new Marketplace, each learning content creator (Author) can create a short video describing the course, themselves and their expertise. In addition, on the main page of the Marketplace will be a featured video of a particular instructor. These new features on the Marketplace will allow browsers to better understand course content and determine whether or not the course is the right fit for their needs. It will also give Authors a chance to reach out to users, giving them a space to introduce potential learners to their course content; which is the product of their expertise.
As I mentioned, the layout itself of the Training Marketplace has also changed. Once upon a time, Coggno’s former Marketplace page displayed course titles and a short description in order according to their date of uploading.
However, on Coggno’s new Training Marketplace, visitors can browse the available courses and training modules by category. The new Marketplace is designed to be more intuitive, user-friendly, and convenient for users.
The greater ease in searching for online training courses combined with more opportunities for Authors to be seen and heard make the new Marketplace an exciting improvement on the Coggno site.
For those who aren’t familiar with the idea of a courseware marketplace, Coggno’s Training Marketplace is basically a meeting point for creators of learning content and those who wish to acquire it. The Marketplace showcases courses covering a range of training topics, including those created by top e-learning authors like SilkWeb.
Coggno’s LMS allows users to create and deliver customized training solutions. Users can make training their own, with the option to display their logo as well as a unique color scheme. Course authors are also able to upload and deliver training for in-house purposes or syndicate their learning content for a wider audience.
And since Coggno uses a pay-per-use business model, it is easy to load and reload learning content as required for relevant, up-to-date training. The model allows organizations and individuals to gain the skills and knowledge they desire when they need it, within a period of time that they themselves determine.
With Coggno’s new Training Marketplace up and running, learners and content Authors are able to leverage robust LMS tools combined with a smartly designed meeting place for the transfer of online courses.
