Pros

Absorb has been great to learn, the customer support team and CRM's are amazing to work with. They are always willing to help achieve overall success for Admin and learners.
Their customer service is by far THE BEST customer service I have ever received working with any other company. They are fast, responsive and always willing to help me out.
Great looking site design and flawless implementation. Amazing pricing and good product support.

Pros

The more I use Degreed, the "smarter" it is. I receive daily emails with recommended learning based on what I have consumed, who I am following, what I have saved for later, etc.
I love the ability to save articles, videos, etc. for later and go back to them when I can...and have them all in one place.
I like the tool very much, Im using it to develop myself and my team. I recommend to anyone that has a goal to improve and develop.

Cons

Again we were really disappointed about the department/sub-department functionality. So if you are using Absorb for multiple clients not just internally then beware.
Thus, whenever you update a course, you will have to re-enroll all users. It has limited assessment options.
Resources don't have a thumbnail- makes them look empty/incomplete. No place for text on the home dashboard.

Cons

Now to the disappointment. Degreed touts itself as "The learning portal to find, track & recognize ALL learning.
If something is behind a paywall Degreed seems unable to gauge it's length and will assign it a low score. No way to easily re-categorise something as e.g. an article, and not a video.
Category feed (at least for me) has not been hugely relevant, and there is not much I can do to customise it. The scoring of different learning resources can be hit and miss.

Degreed

Best way to find, access and track ALL learning!

Reviewed 8 years ago

When I realized that our LMS was not utilized, I began researching options. I had heard from Degreed right when they appeared on the scene, but the timing wasn't right. Once the LMS contract was nearing expiration and seeing low usage, I reached out to Degreed and eventually implemented about 1000 licenses at my organization to pilot the system and show the proof of concept to my leadership team. I...

Pros

I like how Degreed curates current and relevant content from both the web as well as proprietary content that it is linked to. I love the ability to save articles, videos, etc. for later and go back to them when I can...and have them all in one place. I appreciate the ability to track all learning and not just that which is "traditional" and getting credit for the books I read, conferences...

Cons

The lack of a fully developed native app and the reporting are lacking. I would like the same experience on my mobile device as I have on my laptop. I would also like the ability to pull/download and create dynamic reports as well as allow others to do so w/o full admin access.

Transforming Organizational Learning

Reviewed 7 years ago

We launched Degreed throughout the entire organization and the base platform for employee development. We had an amazing pre-launch design, faultless launch and almost zero tech support with only 2 tickets for the population of 1,200 employees. It allows the every employee to be in control of their own learning and development. We used it as an integral part of our talent development process tied...

Pros

Content aggregation very strong. Ability to create learning paths from both external and internal content and assign to users/groups. Ease of creating and following learning groups. Easy to tag and create daily learning feeds. So easy to share and add content from any web source to existing internally create learning paths. Very easy to administer and support. Great UI. Very affordable.

Cons

Would love to see more action oriented triggers to users as reminders to nudge learners to stay active. Would love to see a more robust way to measure if what the organization is learning is making a difference to the business or to customer's experience.
