We are unable to take calls so as to not inhibit the existing communication channels from full functionality. However, if you would like to speak with us, we will schedule a call with you. To do so, drop us a message at one of the official channels and we will be in touch.

01.General

Cogito is our new digital platform that enables learning, communication and results tracking. Brightspace is a world leader in learning management platforms. Academia has engaged Brightspace to provide a digital learning experience for all our clients to replace our previous systems and aggregate them beautifully under one seamless experience.

As a learning management system, Cogito will be an online repository for all the additional learning materials for Academia students. This will include videos, notes, worksheets as well as online quizzes and drills. Online lessons for Masterclass students will be conducted on Cogito’s Virtual Classrooms as well. More information can be found in the Virtual Classroom Guide.

Aside from the move from Zoom to Virtual Classrooms, all Masterclasses remain unaffected. Do not fear: Masterclasses will still continue as they always have.

For Masterclass students, there is no need to pay an additional fee. Cogito is now part of the Academia learning environment for Masterclass students.
