Making Online Learning More Efficient with Video Training: A DigitalChalk Use Case with Cornerstone-edu

Having the right learning management system in-house to train and test employees is critical for those who hang their hat on continuing education. And DigitalChalk meets those demands every time. From filling gaps in employee growth to organizational efficiency, distributing content via video no matter where your people are, creating a rich, vibrant learning experience, and more, we know what people need and continually adapt so that their experience is always world-class.

But don’t just take our word for it. We conducted DigitalChalk User Forum on YouTube where our team listened to what real people were saying about the platform.

  • How they’re using it to train their learners
  • What features stand out the most for them
  • The training obstacles they’ve quickly overcome as a result
  • How using our LMS has taken their internal training to the next level

One such interview was with Jim Drury, President of Cornerstone-edu. Jim provides CE training for licensure in the auction industry. Thirteen states in the country require auctioneers to take CE courses, whether that is every year or every other year. In the past, Jim relied on in-person training that simply took up too much time. Also, clients used to have to go to a library, bank, attorney’s office, or school to get these tests. Now they don’t have to.

“I put the videos up on the DigitalChalk site, then there’s the proctoring, and I put the exam in. The client clicks on that, and they automatically go to ProctorFree. I’ve had no pushback. None. Zero. No complaints,” he said. “They like the fact that they can take the exam immediately. The state likes it because it’s being recorded. I like it because it’s being recorded, and someone else is looking at it to make sure everything is right. I think the system is absolutely the best one out there because of how it’s set up. And the integration between DigitalChalk and ProctorFree is seamless.”

He added, “It’s forced people to think there are other ways to take their CE.”

A robust platform that works for everyone

As we’ve been learning with the feedback we’ve received, everyone uses DigitalChalk differently. And, honestly, that’s what we love about it. As Jim told us, many auctioneers travel frequently. They could go to three auctions in a single day. But that doesn’t keep them from doing their CE training.

“I explained to them, if they have their smartphone, they can listen to the videos while they are driving. And it all started with DigitalChalk,” he said. “I’m over the moon, and I’ve got a business that’s going to continue for at least another six years. In-person training takes too much of my time. I don’t like to do in-person classes. I’ll just do this; it works for me.”
