Digital Learning Solutions

At Big Think Edge, we don’t believe in “one size fits all” learning programs. Instead, we believe the best learning comes from the dialogue that’s created when people are inspired by practical examples of passion, curiosity, and a sense of possibility, from real-world experts who have “walked the walk.”

Catalyzing these conversations is where Big Think Edge excels.

Enabling Engaging & Personalized Learning on an Enterprise Scale


Previously, providing learning on an enterprise scale meant deploying cookie-cutter courses that repeated the same information for everyone. In many cases, these courses would be bland and unengaging for learners. This, in turn, caused disengagement, leading to less than satisfactory application of the learning.


Big Think Edge revitalizes professional learning by using short-form online videos featuring renowned experts. From top practitioners like Elon Musk to accomplished athletes, like Shane Battier, who translate their success into the professional world, and actors who teach the skills they've learned about communication and fear, like Ed Norton, our experts share their real-life stories to engage learners. The focus on action over theory makes the lessons more applicable to learners’ everyday workplace challenges, helping to improve retention of information and the usefulness of the lessons. 

How Big Think Edge compares to standard e-Learning and MOOCs

Not only do learners watch Edge videos to completion, they engage with the lessons because they feel inspired by both the experts and lessons. For example, an employee in one company that use Big Think Edge programs stated:

“I absolutely think these tools will help to foster a better experience within myself and for my team. Knowing that several others from my organization are involved reassures me that collectively we can help drive the improvements learned here throughout the organization.”

Compare this to results in typical e-learning and MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) programs. The videos in these programs lose about 50% of their viewers shortly after the video begins. Even when these “standard” e-learning programs use “bite-sized” videos, only the optics improve, not the engagement.

This difference in impact can be seen in the Net Promoter Score (NPS) of learners after engaging with Big Think Edge content (below). The average NPS, or the likelihood that the learner would recommend the content to a friend or colleague, for most learning programs is at -31 points out of a possible 100. Big Think Edge programs routinely average between 70 and 90 points on the same scale.

Net Promoter Score

Beyond having experts that your employees are excited to learn from, the success of our programs is also due to the customizability of Edge’s online learning.
