CUSTOM E-LEARNING

NogginLabs was founded on the notion that custom e-learning design and development is the ultimate horizontal industry. Time and again, each new project, client, and industry proves it. The biggest advantage of the e-learning horizontal is cross-pollinating ideas from two wildly different domains. A restaurant service simulation for iPad may influence a high-fashion online retail challenge. E-learning for financial advisors in a bank could inspire a mobile outreach program for cancer survivors. This variety also keeps the creative folks at NogginLabs fresh. Fresh learning ideas and designs come from a set of constantly changing constraints.

Passionate People Create Better Learning

Being a Noggin means you're genuinely excited about the challenge of creating innovative custom e-learning every single day.

Our team is comprised of folks from divergent, cross-functional backgrounds who look at e-learning differently. We believe that what you can do matters much more than what degree you have or where you went to school. Being smart, nice, and funny helps us thrive in a fast-paced creative environment. Having a life outside of work both refreshes the spirit and spurs imaginative ideas.

We believe:

constraints-force-innovation-principle.png

CONSTRAINTS FORCE INNOVATION

True creativity comes from harnessing the constraints of a project. Different budgets, time, bandwidth, audiences, topics and technologies all fuel our innovation fire.

BEHAVIOR TRUMPS KNOWLEDGE

We believe changing behavior is more important than memorizing facts. Our courses let learners practice making decisions and mistakes in simulated worlds rather than the real one.

PASSIONATE PEOPLE CREATE BETTER LEARNING

We hire people from divergent, cross-functional backgrounds who are smart, kind and possess an old-fashioned work ethic that makes our parents proud.

TECHNOLOGY SHOULD NOT BE COMPLICATED

Technology is less complicated than many folks in the learning industry are led to believe. We built our Instructional Genome framework around the concept that less is more and that buzzwords can't compete with technical honesty.

GREAT PROCESSES MAKE DEADLINES

If you can't deliver on time and on budget, the project fails. We believe how you build custom e-learning matters as much as what you build.
engaged-users-learn-more.png

ENGAGED USERS LEARN MORE

We believe that people should actually want to complete a training course. We use humor, simulation, rich media, and authentic stories to draw people into our custom e-learning courses.
