The Academy LMS Feature Reviews

Rebecca Dinovo

Fantastic Professional Development and Gamification!

2020-02-07

The level of support was great - our customer service team worked with us through the implementation phase and beyond to ensure we were satisfied.

Pros

We could upload SCORM packages for compliance testing from other sources easily that were required training and we could easily build new courses in their site.

Cons

In the financial industry compliance is a heavy burden and we had to do more manually tracking in the system than we preferred.

Lots of nice to have features, but some critical features missing

2019-10-03

Having been quite excited to work with the academy, after seeing marketing materials etc in a previous role, I was more than a little disappointed.

Pros

Look and feel and some of the gamification features

Cons

Inability to do some critical things, such as set a due date on a course. Overly complicated method for things such as removing an invite.

It's easy to use, the support you receive from GE is great, you can use the platform in any way.

2017-12-05

business engagement, making learning fun, people want to log on to gain XP and collect badges.

Pros

It's completely brand-able and you can make it your own and bespoke to how you want it to look and feel.

Cons

There isn't much that I don't like about this software, I think it's great. The only thing we don't utilise right now is the Classroom Events, as this doesn't seem to work for us.

Gamifcation at it's finests!

2020-02-10

The platform enabled us to increate the angagement with learning in the organisation.

Pros

The fact that this combines, social learning, Gamification and a great platform into one simple solution.

Cons

I was expecting more development to take place over the last period. So although the platform is cutting edge as it is, I was hoping to be dazzled by even more great developments.

Decent look, terrible functionality

2019-01-16

The people are great, but the product is awful.

Pros

The Customer Excellence team is friendly, however don't get too attached as due to high turnover you will be working with a new rep before long.

Cons

Reporting is a joke, as it can't handle large data sets, deadlines are never met,even uploading content is hit or miss.

Great company to work with. Very simple, easy to use software and great customer support.

2017-11-28

Pros

Software is easy to use.

Cons

The platform has some shortcomings as far as features such as not being able to assign due dates to content, assignment profiles/assigning content, and not a robust back end ability for the type of content loaded to the platform.

Review of Academy LMS

2019-09-24

I think this is a great LMS for our leaners who have some experience with computers but others do not find it very intuitive.

Pros

The implementation of our various modules, the fact that learners level up automatically when they complete each lesson, the badges make it fun for the learners

Cons

Sometimes things get fairly messed up with new updates etc. Things tend to go missing sometimes

A fantastic and intuitive LMS supported by friendly and passionate people.

The site will deliver great results with basic content and interaction, but the magic is delivered when you start getting creative with what the platform can do.

Tips and Tricks

2020-01-16

My overall experience has been good. I just wish that the troubles are attended to as soon as possible that would make the experience just about perfect.

Pros

The flexibility of use through the product itself is way easier to navigate than others similar.

Cons

Sometime there's trouble with the product like there's some sort of gliche with it. It would be the perfect product if this is fixed.
