A Primer for Those Seeking a Brainshark Alternative

 

Learn about our Transition Program

How does the KnowledgeVision online presentation tool compare with an older generation platform like Brainshark?

KnowledgeVision was designed from the ground up in the modern era of rich online video content. Video is at the center of what we do – it’s in our DNA, not just an afterthought. Just as you can’t slap wings on a steam train and pretend it’s an airplane, you can’t take a legacy audio slide presentation platform, slap video onto it, and pretend it’s an engaging video experience.

“I am no longer a Brainshark client. I was for years but I am not thrilled with how Brainshark works or looks now.”

“Everyone who watches our presentations finds the KnowledgeVision platform very intuitive and loves that they can skip around to particular chapters. The navigation feature is so useful for replays.”
