Pros

Moodle is a great way to make learning for students fun and interactive! it is fun, colorful, and very engaging.
They offer incredibly detailed configuration options and the community is full of wonderful active people that are always there to help you if it's needed.
The overall experience using Moodle is good. It great to navigate even if your a first time user and is very effective in online teacher especially during this pandemic.

Pros

The ability to copy and paste a full quiz as opposed to typing in each question for quiz will also be a good time saver. The help section as well as customer support has also been quite useful.
The vision that I initially had for my company had grown tremendously thanks to TalentLMS. I'm excited to coach and my clients are excited to learn.
After compare the most popular LMS cloud in the market Talent is a very good option.

Cons

The overall experience was dull, heavy, and made everyone unhappy and struggling.
It is now a bulky applications with hell lots of features, it will take you around 2-3 months to properly go through every feature, no matter how fast you are.
Moodle can be difficult to find classes you are taking. I have had struggles signing into my class and finding them.

Cons

Overall the system needs an Administrator UX overhaul. Navigating the ecosystem is complex and often confusing, with a number of workflows seeming to wind around through functions until you get lost.
The biggest frustration has been the lack of an integrated grade book along with limited testing options (that are not very customizable).
Company blocks box.com which is what is used to host uploaded files for view on the website and therefore needed to create webpages which is difficult.

A great user experience

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Easy to understand intuitive interface makes TalentLMS one of the best LMS out there. It has Stripe payments and tons of features. Everything is well planned out and easy to learn. They offer a free trial of about 5 students. The price is better than most, and depends on how many students you have. The UI and UX are top notch.

Cons

I hope they include some kind of attendance system like Moodle.

Vendor response

Hi Osama, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. It is great to hear you find TalentLMS easy and intuitive. We sincerely believe that trying out any LMS before committing to a plan is key. That's why we have a forever-free plan, so that anyone can try out TalentLMS, understand all the features of the platform and be sure that it's the right fit for their needs, much like you did. Thank you for your idea to track attendance, our team is currently working on an attendance tracking feature, so keep an eye out for that update in an upcoming release!

TalentLMS

Compared to Moodle or a Wordpress LMS I found set up very easy, and was pleased with the features.

Reviewed 6 years ago

I wanted to migrate some e-learning content from a Moodle installation and have shopping cart functionality.

Pros

Talent LMS is simple to set up and although it is good looking out of the box, there are plenty of opportunity to customise the layout, branding and colours. I'm really pleased that it offers both SCORM and xAPI support, and makes setting up the shopping cart very easy, with lots of options for discounts, vouchers, etc.

Cons

Although TalentLMS has good accessibility features I think the SCORM and xAPI launch button needs to be looked at - it doesn't seem to get keyboard focus and is a problem if you don't use a mouse. I think it would be very easy to add a javascript to give the 'launch' button focus when the page loads.

Vendor response

Hi, Ian! We're delighted our platform has provided the solution you were looking for without any hassle! Accessibility is one of our top priorities, so thanks for your valuable feedback and for choosing TalentLMS. Cheers!

TalentLMS

Excellent out of the box functionalities

Reviewed 3 years ago

This is a good eLearning solution for bigger organisations willing to commit for the long term. For smaller organisations, I would recommend a Moodle-based LMS simply because of the available documentation and help.

Pros

I trialled TalentLMS for a little while for a project. I liked that it comes with a lot of pre-configured settings which makes getting started really straightforward. A good set of features including the built-in course builder.

Cons

Not an open-source platform - I ended up going with a different Moodle-based LMS instead. Also, a bit on the pricier side for me.

Vendor response

Thank you for taking the time to review TalentLMS, Susaina.

TalentLMS

Best service and flawless tech support

Reviewed 7 years ago

With talentLMS I was able to provide a professionnal LMS, fully compatible with all media content, able to support a fully corporate branded interface for my client.

Pros

Easy to use, clear, good design, optimized, versatile. The big PROS goes for their support, my first question has been answered in 15 minutes, I ask the second on the evening, they came back to me the first hour of the next day. Marios, from the support team, proved to be ultra effective at resolving my problem, even though at the end my questions were more related on my web hosting than on their service. I've hardly ever seen a support team as involved as this one. Back to the LMS, it offers almost every feature that you could imagine. I've tried to set up a private moodle server at first but when you see how much quality and service you get for your money with talentlms, a free moodle server is out of consideration.

Cons

Well, nothing is perfect but I have to say that talentlms is very close. If I had to find a cons I would say that sometimes the interface could be a little more customized, but they are already very good at this and no LMS will ever be fully customisable so.. I've spent hours comparing all the different LMS solution, free and paid, I've ended up with talentLMS and I don't regret it.

Vendor response

Hey Colin, thank you so much for your lovely feedback! We strive to provide a seamless experience to our clients and help them with everything they might need, so many thanks from our support team too! Glad you're enjoying your experience with TalentLMS!

TalentLMS

Easy setup, intuitive design, basic yet satisfying UI & UX.

Reviewed 7 years ago

Collaboration with senior staff and trainers. Buy-in from all levels of the team. Compliance and understanding of our Standing Instructions. Review and re-writing of procedures. It goes on and on!

Pros

Let's start with the cost- easily the highest featured for the money LMS out there. We went with Moodle and really tried to make it work for quite some time. We were on the verge of hiring a Moodle expert to help us take the project live, but instead took one last look at the market. TalentLMS hits the sweet spot between self-hosting a Moodle site for free and paying a lot of money for a high-end...

Cons

The only think I marked down was the Customer Support, but only because I would like something like a live webchat function for admins. It's perhaps a bit unfair as they have a ticketing function that allows users to create tickets for issues and they respond to you really quickly (less than 30mins in my experience). However, at the start of our implementation, I'd like to talk to somebody in real-time about issues and problems, so this is the only thing I would change. Using a system like Tawk.to (free!) would have been an idea for them. We've actually installed Tawk.to on our version of TalentLMS and it's great for our users.

Vendor response

Hi Mark, We're thrilled to hear that TalentLMS is such a great fit for your training needs! Our support response time is a metric we are constantly improving and it's great to hear that you've been receiving responses so quickly! Having said that, the quality of our responses is just as important. This is why we've chosen to go with a ticketing system since questions can be answered by the most suitable person on the team --something we wouldn't be able to do with a chat system. However, we haven't ruled out the possibility to provide chat support, it is something that we will definitely consider in the future! Thanks again for your feedback! It really helps us improve!

Using TalentLMS for online-courses for managers and business analysts

Reviewed 9 years ago

I've been using TalentLMS almost for a year. We are offering live, blended and on-line trainings for managers and business analysts (courses: EU project management, Business Process Management, Social Responsibility Management,...) TalentLMS platform offers simplicity, ease of use for admins, instructors and learners. We have received many positive feedbacks from users about ease of use of the learning platform. We are also using Moodle and BlackBoard, but TalentLMS is more user friendly than any of mentioned. Strongly recommended.

Pros

PROS: Ease of use for all (admins, instructors, learners), simplicity, customer support, pricing plans. Updates with new functionalities (customer voice). Speed of bug fixing (last time I've found a bug and it was resolved in matter of hours) Configuration possibilities. Hassle free startup.

Cons

Document viewer is quite limited (too small), it does not support PDF links. Upgrade to new viewer is not automated (the course should be rebuilt and materials re-uploaded) Discussion forum is limited (it's difficult to get the logic behind, e.g. who receives the post updates) Overall, possibility to network learners using forums/comments/discussions is limited and not very useful. Forums can not be linked to a specific course. Forum can be embedded to a course using iFrame, but this is not the same. But these are only small glitches (more recommendations to improve) and not show-stoppers.

Review of TalentLMS

Reviewed 10 years ago

As nearly every other firm that utilises a learning management system, we invested about two months of time studying and testing a wide variety of LMS options. These options ranged from the purchase of an off-the-shelf system, to contracting a firm to build from the ground up, to working to modify an open source LMS (e.g., Moodle) to that of configuring specialised LMS plugins through a word press...
