What is a Custom Learning Experience?

We believe that organizations with a mission to do great things, things that really matter, can advance their strategy and mission through learning. But we think most learning, especially online learning, fails at this. It’s boring. It doesn’t stick. It’s antiquated. It’s hard. It all looks the same.  

What’s more, Online Program Management companies (OPMs), lock institutions into long-term contracts and take 50 to 70 percent of tuition revenue.

We've worked with 70 clients on 250 projects and have spent over 500,000 hours developing online learning — programs that touched millions of learners. From this, we discovered an opportunity, to create an approach to learning unlike any other.

We call this approach, custom learning experiences.  It offers unique and powerful learning that leverage the latest in learning science and advances in technology to engage the learner and create true learning.  This approach can be applied to any organization looking to advance its strategy and mission, not only higher education institutions, but also corporations and not for profits.
