Docebo Features In Depth

ILT-Classroom

There are two types of online trainings: web-based training and instructor-led. And then, there are blended learning scenarios, which are a combination of both web-based and instructor-led training. To create instructor-led training courses, the ILT-Classroom app must first be activated. It can be found in the Apps and Features section of the sidebar on the left. The ILT-Classroom app is listed under the Additional features tab.

The app allows you to schedule and manage instructor-led live training sessions, and organize classrooms, locations, enrollments, and evaluations. It can also be used alongside the Learning Plan app to manage and schedule blended training sessions.

File Uploading and Converting

Docebo allows trainers to upload and share just about any type of training material, be that SCORM, Tin Can, PPT, PDF or video files. PDF, PPT, PPTX and ODP files can also be converted into slides or a sequence of snapshots without any need for a local download into the user’s computer. To convert a file into slides, create or select a new course. Click the Add Training Material button and select Slides Converter from the drop-down menu. Files can then be uploaded or dragged into the gray area. Conversion time depends on the number of slides needed for the presentation.

Some points to remember: SCORM packages are created with specific software and uploaded in ZIP format. Any type of video can be uploaded to a course, and Docebo automatically converts them into MP4 format.

Advanced Tracking and Reporting

“If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.” This is a line you probably have already heard once or twice, a line believed to have been coined by management specialist Peter Drucker. There are some who don’t subscribe to this line of thinking, but in the online learning world, the best way to measure the success of a training material and how much of the training participants actually take away is through reports and analytics.

Docebo’s real-time tracking capabilities allow instructors and trainers to instantly understand which courses have already been completed, which students have passed which tests, how many students are yet to complete a particular course, and so on. Reports can be standard, summary or custom and can be exported as CSV or XLS files.

Powerful Integrations

Docebo employs an integration strategy that extends and expands native Docebo functionalities through third-party applications. Add-ons can either be free or paid and include the likes of WebEx, Adobe Connect and TeleSkill for web conferencing, WordPress, Drupal and Joomla for CMS (content management system), Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook for social media, and Vivocha for online customer interactions. These apps can easily be found and integrated with your custom LMS (learning management system) through Docebo’s apps marketplace.

Docebo also supports single sign-on (SSO) and single login functions with third-party applications. For example, your users can log in to your Docebo LMS via their Facebook accounts. Docebo can integrate with virtually any third-party software through its custom API (application programming interface). As well, it uses the SCORM standard and Tin Cap API for a more seamless LMS experience by both course creators and takers.

Course Marketplace and E-Commerce Functionalities

If you’re an instructor and would like to profit from the custom courses you create, Docebo’s e-commerce app allows you to do just that. To be able to sell your courses, first, you have to have a Docebo account. Next, you’ll need to activate the e-commerce app. Once activated, you can upload your courses and decide which ones to sell. You price your own courses, and all sales are yours 100%.

Courses on sale appear in the course marketplace with a green shopping cart icon on the upper-right hand. A learner interested in buying a course can scroll over the shopping cart icon to review the course’s description and price. Payments are made via PayPal and other payment gateways. Docebo also offers a transaction tracking tool which gives you insight into your sales numbers, including which users actually purchased your courses.

2018-04-19

Pros

The User interface is clean, customizable, and easy to use.

Cons

it fell short in its functionality, and reporting. there are only a few customizable reports, the rest are out of the box. this is very limiting when you are trying to create ad hoc reporting.

Ideal solution for quick yet powerful eLearning implementation

2015-10-14

Thanks to a really fast API response we were able to integrate all our systems: SSO from company and partner portals, progress informer for a learner, real-time courseware customization depending on LMS metadata, certification synchronization with our CRM, extended reporting and some other important items.

Pros

Very responsive API

Cons

We'd like to see richer API (to have access to all of the objects on LMS side and manipulate them).

The most intuitive learning platform

2019-05-08

If you have a user or student audience, DOCEBO is one of the best options because the access to the software is very fast and besides being cross-platform it is multi-device, the mobile version of very intuitive, we can all access the learning platform in any moment without technical inconveniences.

Pros

One of the greatest strengths of DOCEBO is that it focuses on the user at all times, each learning resource inserts into a player that allows you to review each element sequentially. The user or student always knows where to go to continue their learning, also accepts multiple formats such as videos, scorm, audio, images and embedded objects.

Cons

The administrative part at the beginning can be a bit complicated for all the information it generates, but after learning how each of the reports and other statistics work, it is all the more useful to manage the platform.

2019-03-04

If you need an LMS tool that will help your employees learn quickly and efficiently, you should opt for Docebo especially, if your work requires preparing employees for projects that differ from one another significantly.

Pros

Our work would have been impossible without Docebo, thanks to which we can provide efficient training for our new employees. The tool has an easy to navigate interface, so our newbies are not feeling lost during onboarding.

Cons

Some of our employees had problems with logging in, but that occurred that rarely that it's hard to consider it an issue.

Docebo is a top tier LMS, with added gamification features that other lack.

2018-10-03

They are a fantastic option, and have unique gaming elements that add value over the already outstanding LMS platform functionality.

Pros

It has great administrative capabilities for reporting and managing hierarchies, very cool gamification elements, and solid performance and support.

Cons

It isn't for everyone. Although they have a wider use-case range than most, if you don't need the gamification then they don't have a lot of other differentiators from other LMS platforms.

Docebo creates an extraordinary customer experience supporting you in achieving all of your goals!

2017-09-29

We are able to leverage learning to improve employee performance and customer success.

Pros

I love being able to leverage the system to create a learning organization. We are able to deliver information quickly and using multiple modalities.

Cons

Learning how to configure and maximize the utilization of a LMS is complex and takes time. This is by far the greatest challenge with any LMS, yet the supportive and innovative team at Docebo walks alongside you helping you ensure you're able to maximize your investment.

We are confident now that we offer a platform with not only great content, but a great interface and reporting, and enhanced functionality.

Customer support is essentially non-existent below Enterprise level

2019-05-17

What really caused massive frustration internally was Docebo's insistence that we either upgrade to the Enterprise service level or continue to experience similar failures.

Pros

It initially attracted our company based on its clean user interface and entry-level price point.

Cons

Additionally, there are quite a few bugs in their user management and notification management admin features.

Powerful Technology that Requires Lengthy Implementation

2019-10-16

Everyone at Docebo is extremely helpful and kind. Our implementation specialist was very transparent with us. When she couldn't answer a question we had for her, she made sure to follow up once she found the answer. Our CSM has also been great! Always very responsive. Docebo has allowed us to tackle so many new projects and provide our learners with a ton of new on demand resources and training. We are so excited to see what is down the road for Docebo!

Pros

Customization - The ability to customize homepages, additional fields, notifications, etc. has been extremely useful.

Cons

We'd like more customizable and powerful reporting.
