Pros
I love the search function and the ability to create lists. The smart list feature is amazing.
What I love the most about OpenSesame is that they not only have great content to pull from (and plenty of it), but their support team behind the product is amazing.
We love the access to diverse e-learnings, the continuous upgrades like smart lists, and the amazing customer engagement support team. OpenSesame continues to step up its game.
Cons
With some languages, there seems to be more limited options.
There are no real cons they are so many offerings.
There was no easy way to catalog content into customer categories. And no categorization by content type.

OpenSesame Review

Pros

We love the access to diverse e-learnings, the continuous upgrades like smart lists, and the amazing customer engagement support team. OpenSesame continues to step up its game.

Cons

Well they have a great variety of courses we are always hoping for more, especially in our global company languages (we have over a dozen languages).

Open Sesame is a valued partner for employee learning at EnerSys

Reviewed 2 months ago

Open Sesame is our main partner in sourcing self-paced content for our learners. Their teams are uber-responsive, and are a joy to work with.

Pros

First, the enormous variety of courses available makes Open Sesame indispensable for our organizational training needs. Next, since we a re a multi-national company, we need to have training in a variety of languages. Third, the availability of compliance related courses really helps to increase the value of our Plus subscription. Last, the Curation Team at Open Sesame is a huge value-add. the yare quick, professional and reliable.

Cons

Occasionally, courses are obsoleted or made inactive and we do not receive advance notice of these , outside of PPU courses.

More does not mean better

Reviewed 5 years ago

We were implementing an LMS and wanted pre packaged content available for deployment in order to give learners a starting point for development while we design our learning programs. There was a lot of effort required to review content. Customer service during implementation was not ideal because we had to go through LMS vendor and then often repeat to OS. There’s wasn’t enough collaboration between the companies so we felt we were initiating conversations most of time. The follow up from OS was not great at all, long delays in getting responses. Content needs to be vetted better. More does not mean better. In the end, we were able to offer content for learning and we are continuing to review and iterate our program.

Pros

There are a variety of topics in the library in which the company can choose for learning. There was a pre built integration with LMS which made the integration quicker. That doesn’t suggest the integration process was effective. It was however relatively quick in that it did not require any overnight production runs to see changes between. Content updates could be manually pushed into LMS and they appeared almost immediately.

Cons

The quality of some videos are not as you would expect, some have heavy animation so it comes across cartoonish and takes away from the concept. There was no easy way to catalog content into customer categories. And no categorization by content type. There was no easy way to review the content. The review process requires you to launch over 20,000 content assets to preview one by one for appropriateness...

Engaging your workforce with tools to learn and grow.

Reviewed 5 years ago

I had to start from scratch with a new LMS, content provider and new Performance Management concept. Open sesame curated the content with me and had a cool survey I took prior to the start so we could customize content for my company and our culture. We were able to do this and launch within 3 months encompassing several different divisions with many needs.

Pros

IT is the customer service element and the outstanding service, support, idea exchange and open door to all of the talent at OpenSesame. The programs and support materials are awesome but the soft services they provide make them our vendor of choice. I recently was challenged to do an RFP to see what was new and cool out there. And I was again wowed by the quality of the products they offer. We are global and have a need for many languages and OpenSesame's offerings are spot on!

Cons

There are no real cons they are so many offerings. My one need is executive book summaries! Hoping they offer something like that in the future.

Vendor response

Thanks Deb for the review. Your session at CLO Symposium was well received!
