Improving how you find the elearning courses you need

Get the right training to your learners faster.

Over the past year, we’ve been busy creating tools to make your day easier, your job simplified, and your training program energized.

If you’ve kept up with our blog or checked out the OpenSesame Community, you may already be familiar with OpenSesame Smart Lists and Smart Groups, OpenSesame Curated Lists, our outstanding curation services, or even the OpenSesame Monthly Course Toolkit, a collection of templates and digital assets to help you promote new training to your learners throughout the year. Our goal is to help you create the world’s most admired and productive workforce—all without losing sleep.

Find specific courses you need quickly and easily.

Our latest release includes a redesigned and enhanced OpenSesame catalog search to help you find elearning courses for your program more easily and efficiently. Harnessing the same dynamic search technology and algorithms used by OpenSesame Smart Lists, the new catalog search is faster, more intuitive, and more powerful than ever.

In addition to an elegant new design, enhanced filtering capabilities, and lightning-fast speed, the new catalog search is designed to save L&D professionals like you time in your day.

  • Intuitive typeahead: you’ll receive helpful topic and spelling suggestions as you type in the Search box to accelerate your search.
  • Streamlined language search: you can more easily find courses in various languages—including those with translated subtitles—to meet the needs of your multilingual or global workforce.
  • Easy publisher search: know which publishers your learners prefer? You can now type their name into the search filter to immediately narrow your course selections.
  • Refined certification and accreditation search: quickly find courses relevant to popular certifications or those accredited by recognized organizations for continuing education credits or units.

Which tool should you use for your (curation) job?

To help you get the most out of our curation tools and services, we’ve put together a quick guide to help you along the way.
