What I hope you'll get out of this course

Brian Cugelman, PhD

Brian CugelmanWhen you look at the research on what it takes to run a great e-learning program, you’ll quickly discover it takes a lot more than a bunch of static videos.

My team and I have put a lot of effort into our online training program, so let me share a few of the key things we believe will help you get the most out of our suite of online courses.

Engaging lessons

The content of our online training has been optimized over the course of 7 years while teaching digital psychology to teams and individuals across the USA and Canada. I also learned a lot on how to teach the subject while lecturing at the University of Toronto, York University, and giving guest lectures at MIT, Johns Hopkins, and more.

My students tell me they like the the way I translate the science into lessons that are both easily understood and entertaining. To keep the science down-to-earth and accessible, I make my lessons diverse with a blend of formal theory, case studies, stories, structured discussions, design teardowns, creative design challenges, group polls, videos, and hands-on exercises.

Effective e-learning

I’m picky about what it takes to run an effective e-learning program. Research shows that if you simply ask students to watch online videos they will learn less, drop out more, and perform worse on tests.

I want my students to have a transformative learning experience, which is why I avoided creating low-quality static training videos. I instead focused on producing high-quality videos with a package of downloadables, live tutorials, and tailored hands-on training. Moreover, I’m running everything on a reasonably paced schedule leading to our final exam.

Realistic behavioral science

We don’t only teach behavioral psychology, we carry out impact studies for organizations like the United Nations as well. I also personally submit our research to scientific peer-review journals and conferences (https://scholar.google.ca/citations?user=L_rieZ4AAAAJ&hl=en&oi=ao).

My training is focused on what’s possible, hype-free, and designed to empower you with a new set of strategies and skills.

Comprehensive training system

My focus as a teacher and scientist has been to develop the most comprehensive training system on applying psychology to digital media. I’ll take you step-by-step through a comprehensive training system that cuts through the jargon and focuses on what matters.

I’m not a fan of training that hobbles together random content from from different teachers. I also don’t like courses that pull together arbitrary shopping lists of psychological principles and I really dislike courses that focus too much on superficial tactics without enough focus on the principles that matter.

Instead, my goal is for you to understand what matters and empower you with a transformative insight that will pay out over the rest of your career.

A system that keeps improving

Instead of building more courses I’ve focused on improving our existing ones, making them better and better all the time with consistent updates using the latest resources. I’ve opted for a 2 year subscription platform in the interest of giving you up-to-date and industry-relevant content you can actually use instead of selling you lifetime access to outdated content which is what most schools offer.

The reason for this is though humans don’t change and the principles I teach should be good for thousands of years, their digital media applications will likely become outdated within five. As such, I feel a two-year subscription approach will be better for everyone involved.

Got questions?

If you have any questions about the course, reach out. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best,

Brian
