Pros

It's been a wonderful experience with Blackboard, i love how other applications integrate so well with Blackboard.
Blackboard is wonderful for students, it is very easy to use and they constantly do updates that help improve the system.
Overall I had a wonderful experience and I’ve talked to other students about their thoughts and the overall consensus was it’s great for the busy college student.

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

We ran our own host and it had nothing but problems, and I am not talking hardware. Every time we went to run an update, it broke something.
Everything about Blackboard is clunky — at least as it is set up in our university. Operations that should be drag and drop require multiple clicks.
When you first enter blackboard it can seem hard to navigate and seem overwhelming for both student and teacher. The options for customization for teachers are somewhat limited.

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.

Pros

Simple and quick to set up and maintain. And importantly affordable.

Cons

Still having some bugs (probably it is the Android updates) with questions banks. Should consider some ways of uploading question bank without additional tools. Prefer to have the option to change the mobile APP name to customise it for individual organisation using the APP.

TalentLMS

TalentLMS is comprehensive and affordable. It has what I need to submit my course for approval.

Reviewed 5 years ago

The ability to present a professional product along with having innovative software to build upon.

Pros

When I first encountered TalentLMS, I was searching for an LMS to produce and sell a course. I knew nearly nothing about eLearning except for taking a course on BlackBoard and webinar platforms. Their website is choc-ful of training, from learning what an LMS is to, eLearning, different types of learners and instructing. In addition, the site has pre-loaded courses to teach you about the various benefits and what your users can expect.

Cons

At this point I do not have any real cons. As a creative, I would like to see more certificate options.

Using TalentLMS for online-courses for managers and business analysts

Reviewed 7 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.

TalentLMS

A great way for remote people to learn about a company

Reviewed 3 years ago

It's helped me as a new employee learn the company basics without having to be on the phone constantly asking simple questions.

Pros

I use this as a new employee who works remotely. The company puts all sorts of different training guides and videos online for new employees and it's allowed me to stay remote and not have to travel to the main office. It could also be used for customers to learn how to use a system without in-person training. It's a real time/people saver.

Cons

Like anything, it's a portal without a live person on the other end. That's not a con for the software but may come up with someone using it wanting someone to be live instead of an LMS.

Vendor response

Learning the ins and outs of a new workplace remotely can be challenging, so it's great to hear that using TalentLMS has helped you feel more connected to your new workplace! We also support Instructor-Led Training (ILT) for anyone who would like to provide a blended learning approach which has proven to be most effective!
