Enhance communication & critical life skills
Kognito experiential learning solutions give your students, faculty, and staff the confidence to start more conversations and take action that cultivates a community of care.
Our evidence-based solutions let learners develop skills in a private and risk-free practice environment, giving them the freedom to explore different conversational tactics and build the confidence to address difficult topics in real-life conversations.
Multiple empirical and longitudinal studies demonstrate that our simulations, which incorporate insights from subject matter experts, result in statistically significant changes in knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behavior.
Our clients are equipped with admin tools to allow for easy usage tracking to monitor compliance. Customizable pre-/post- surveys support program evaluation and measure changes in self-efficacy and behavior change.
Brief & scalable
Unlike conventional one-day workshops, our virtual simulations have a duration of just 30-75 minutes, and are accessible to students and faculty at anytime from anywhere via desktop or mobile devices.

More students getting help. Sooner.
A peer-reviewed randomized control trial at a large private university found statistically significant changes among Kognito trainees:
who completed Friend2Friend said they would recommend the simulation to their friends
The help-seeking rate of Kognito trainees is twice that of untrained students
Training 14 students in Kognito leads to 1 additional self-referral to support
