Introducing Cognition: an xAPI-driven training retention
system for a new age of training performance.
A good mind is a terrible thing to waste, so why waste the mental capacity of your trainees?
Cognition is one of our latest training reinforcement innovations. Based on sound theories of how people retain and lose new information, we’ve created a product that takes the pain out of reinforcement for both trainers and trainees.
Driven by xAPI
Built on the latest xAPI technology standards, Cognition integrates fully with your Learning Record Store letting you create the reports and leaderboards you need.
Take Control of Your Content
Apart from Cognition unique integration abilities, it also provides the means to author your own content and then deliver it in a way that is designed to foster training retention.
There are a wide array of ways in which you can deliver content using Cognition. You can deliver entire media-rich short courses or simply follow-up questions, or something in between.
With Cognition you can quantify retention and use that benchmark to monitor and improve upon retention levels.
Cognition does this by delivering ongoing knowledge questions. These have the dual function of measuring retention and building knowledge structures. All while the LRS keeps all the data insights safely stored for your use.
Cognition has been designed with well-established learning principles in mind. It’s based on theories of memory such as the Ebbinghaus “forgetting curve” and other research insights that have shown us when and how people forget even very important things.
To learn more about the principle theory Cognition is based on we recommend you sign up for our free course on the “forgetting curve”.
