OpenSesame Case Study

Nelnet expands individualized training with OpenSesame


This case study of Nelnet is based on a June 2017 survey of OpenSesame customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“We’ve been able to provide more individualized training to our associates via the OpenSesame courses than we’ve been able to with other vendors who use a license-based e-learning model that’s much more costly, especially when an associate only wants to take one or two courses on a specific topic.”


The business challenges that led the profiled company to evaluate and ultimately select OpenSesame:

  • Faced the following challenges when providing online training to learners at their company:
    • Deploying learning content
    • Low completion rates
    • Providing enough training topics to cover all employee needs (e.g. employee levels and departments)
    • Cost
    • Using a learning management system (LMS)
  • Offered 0-100 training courses to their learners prior to using OpenSesame.


The surveyed company achieved the following results with OpenSesame:

  • Able to offer 101-500 training courses to their learners after purchasing OpenSesame.
  • Able to train 51-75% more employees after purchasing OpenSesame.
