CogBooks Courseware is ideal for classes taught remotely because our technology has been designed from the outset with online curricula in mind.

CogBooks Courseware is a ready-to-adopt, complete online course solution that delivers instructional content, homework and assessment within a continuously adaptive learning environment. Instructors teaching online can be confident that learners get the support they need at the moment they need it because the learning experience adapts as each learner engages with instruction and assessment activities.

CogBooks’ pedagogical approach relies on research and scientific methods to optimize and measure learner engagement in our user experience.

  • The user experience in CogBooks Courseware feels familiar, much like navigating an online version of a textbook, that also happens to be dynamically responding to each learner as they progress through the course material.
  • Interactive content, including videos, drag & drop activities and dynamic animations are woven into the pedagogical approach of the instructional material.
  • Metacognitive measurement (learner confidence) and performance measurement on assessment activities is captured throughout each learning module.
  • All learner engagement in CogBooks Courseware is easily accessible in the instructor analytics dashboard giving you instant visibility into class progress and the ability to intervene with individual learners if needed. Analytics are captured on every single learner engagement such as engagement with every page of instructional material that has been assigned, interactive content, learner confidence measurement, or performance on assessment items.

Multiple approaches to virtual communication

CogBooks’ platform enables multiple approaches to virtual communication directly within the courseware in the context of the learning module

  • A polling feature that functions similarly to campus-based, student response systems, (e.g. clickers), makes it possible for instructors to focus engagement on a specific topic or facilitate a group discussion virtually.
  • A social messaging tool facilitates impromptu, virtual class discussions that can be led by an instructor or posed peer-to-peer by a learner.
  • Access to an instructor via message or email can also be enabled if desired.
