Cogito ergo sum: I think, therefore I am.

Cogito is the precise and pedagogically innovative implementation of our Learning Management System (LMS). Situated at the frontiers of research, Cogito enables a blended learning experience that also tracks data and turns learning into a 360 experience. Coded and architected in-house in tandem with our pedagogy, Cogito represents a seamless transition between the old and the new.

Here's the destination: cogito.brightspace.com

01. Cogito Functions

Cogito is our digital learning platform and has been carefully designed to fulfil Academia’s pedagogical aims. Brightspace is a top-tier Learning Management System (LMS) used by educational institutions globally. Think of Cogito as a multidimensional experience that aggregates a swathe of digital learning tools into a seamless experience.

Cogito is:

(a) a blended learning adventure across the Academia Universe, including videos, notes, worksheets, quizzes, and drills.

(b) the location of our Virtual Classrooms

(c) multimodal content created by Generative AI that takes pedagogy into the 21st century

(d) a digital concierge that links clients up with a solution or a relationship manager

Log into cogito.brightspace.com and you will be able to see the upcoming lessons in the calendar provided. You can also click on the Cogito Concierge for your level to locate the upcoming online lesson. The digital lessons provided are integrated directly into Cogito and designed for the best online teaching experience—we feel it’s better and more secure for our students than Zoom!

Cogito lessons are permissionless: you may go for any online lesson that has been made available to you on the platform, including: Replacement Lessons (RL) or Post-Week Lessons (PWL). Please notify our FD so the teachers know when to expect you.

You will be able to access these resources at any time throughout your child’s learning adventure with us.
