Coursepath is a hosted online training platform that is well suited for Microlearning—short, digestible, bite-sized type of trainings.
A product of Viadesk, a Dutch-German Software-as-a-Service company that has been in business for over 16 years, helping organizations and employees collaborate and share knowledge online. Viadesk made use of this experience to develop Coursepath, an e-learning platform suitable for any organization.
Your top three reasons:
The straightforward authoring tool with its clean and user-friendly interface empowers trainers and managers to create training courses quickly and easily. With Coursepath you do not have to rely on IT or hire a course developer consultant.
You can easily convert a PowerPoint presentation or a PDF document into a course, and further enrich your courses by uploading various kinds of documents and interactive media.
With Coursepath’s intuitive and modern design, users will need very little help in getting up to speed. Social and collaborative features that encourage participants to ask questions and respond, as well as interact with the trainer and co-participants are embedded seamlessly throughout each course. Crucial factors in helping participants engage better which makes learning fun and much more rewarding.
Everything on the platform can be done by non-technical staff: Do-It-Yourself is the concept.
Manage the academy from anywhere, let your trainers create courses anytime and let your participants access on-demand at their own pace and own time.
Coursepath’s transparent licensing structure allows you to add as many courses as you want in the academy. No need to worry about additional costs per course and deactivating and reactivating courses. Just choose the plan that suits your organisation and let everyone get on board!
Coursepath offers three price plans: Basic, Professional and Enterprise.

A user in Coursepath is everyone (trainer, employee, parter, external service providers, etc.) who gets access to an academy.
If the user contingent is exploited, user accounts that are no longer needed can be deactivated to allow new users. Upgrading to more users is also possible anytime.
A course in Coursepath is a complete training unit consisting of modules and individual learning steps. In our Coursepath Demo Academy you can find example courses.
Because Coursepath is highly intuitive in design and each course is very easy to customize, you can also use this as an environment for workshops, coaching, assessments, tutorials and online manuals.
Upgrading from Basic to Professional will not only allow you up to a maximum of 400 users in the academy, you will also enjoy the following additional features:
The Enterprise Plan will let you invite a custom number of users to your academy. The Enterprise Plan includes the Voucher System, which allows you to give access to courses or the academy via vouchers, for example if the participants’ email addresses are unknown. In addition, we are happy to discuss your individual adaptions and wishes.
