”To Be More Productive You Need Bigger Brains”

WHY CHOOSE BIGGER-BRAINS?

Words From Our Clients:
“... really likes the learner/trainer format of the videos. It is simple to follow and of course since it is available 24/7, [I] can get the training that she needed after work” “the video is quick and clear... [I] also like the trainer/learner format” “...takes a novel approach to computer learning and does strive to better engage people” “...very fun” “Very easy to use and saved a lot of time having to deal with the technical stuff. I would recommend Bigger Brains for any online learning project.” “I like the concept a lot, I think this is a great way to learn. “ “The material is great...and is engaging “

Bigger Brains’ unique style of eLearning uses a revolutionary Teacher/Learner format. Instead of one voice lecturing on and on throughout an eLearning course, Bigger Brains courses simulate a classroom environment by using two people - a Teacher and a Learner - who can discuss topics, ask each other questions, and create a more engaging dialogue. This is not only easier to watch, studies show it’s more effective at helping students retain the knowledge they are given in an online course. Filmed in HD with multiple cameras, experienced Teachers, and high quality production, Bigger Brains’ premium courses stand out from the competition and are a popular choice of HR departments around the world.

Teacher / Learner Format
Online Learning has a reputation for being dull, boring, and hard to watch. The Bigger Brains team has discovered the secret to making online training enjoyable AND effective - our Teacher/Learner format. Each of our 10-minute training modules features two people on camera - a Teacher, and a Learner. The Learner gets to be the proxy for the students who view the course, asking the questions they would want to ask, and engaging in dialogue with the Teacher. The result is a level of interactivity and knowledge-transfer previously unseen in any eLearning environment.

Mobile-Friendly
Take training courses anytime, anywhere with Bigger Brains, thanks to our mobile-friendly video courses. All Bigger Brains courses are shot in gorgeous HD video but packaged in our special HTML5-based packages so they’ll work great on any iPhone, iPad, Android phone, or similar mobile device.

From Our Partners
“Our partnership with Bigger-Brains is very strategic to HRsmart. Integrating our two solutions provides our clients with a robust online training platform that offers interactive and engaging eLearning courses. We are very excited about working with Bigger-Brains.” -Mark Hamdan, CEO of HRsmart. “OpenSesame is very excited to be working with Bigger Brains.

A good salesperson expects these objections, plans for them, and uses them to his or her advantage to move beyond prospects’ automatic defenses and demonstrate how their product or service is truly beneficial. Marisa Pensa, our trainer for this course, is the president and owner of Methods in Motion. With more than eight years of sales training experience and sixteen years of personal sales experience, her expertise and enthusiasm have resulted in hundreds of satisfied clients across a wide range of industries.
