About Scitent eLearning

Scitent was founded in 1995 to bring compelling, relevant multimedia education to market and, in fact, Scitent created one of the first websites, CardioVillage, that provided online continuing education for healthcare providers.

Over the last two decades, the industry has realized that bringing quality content online is much more than a technology decision; it is a business decision. With in-house experts in instructional design, course development, LMS technology, sales and marketing, eCommerce and customer support, Scitent helps nonprofits, associations, and healthcare organizations foster and grow their eLearning business.
