THE Training Tool

2019-03-21

Overall just the best tool out there for training teams. We use it for support agents in particular but can see it expanding beyond that.

Pros

- Easy to Use - Ability for follow-up lessons - Great analysis of employee performance - Nice customization of lesson plans and training courses. - Easy user management.

Cons

- I really have nothing bad to say about this tool. Out of all the tools we looked up, this was by far the best one out there. We love it!

Easy to use with a great support team.

2016-11-14

There are some features we'd like to have, and we've had an opportunity to share our feedback during the entire sales/onboarding process.

Pros

UI/UX design. Customer service.

Cons

Would love a more intuitive experience navigating around the gradebook or managing existing lessons. PDF export of grade data is also something we'd love to see.

Amazing product for employees!

2018-07-12

Training new hires and tenured employees. Testing employee company/product knowledge.

Pros

I use this product for all my new hires and sometimes tenured employees for additional training.

Cons

The technical aspects of moving lessons from path to path is a bit long and could be made easier, maybe a couple of shortcuts could be made to make it a quicker process.

Lessonly is the most intuitive LMS out there!

2016-11-13

Due to the growth of our company, we needed a Learning Management System (LMS) that would help onboarding all the new hires.

Pros

- Easy to create content for administrators / creators - Very intuitive to work with for new hires - Web-based so changes in lessons made are updated automatically - Overview of all users who did (not) complete their lessons - Automatic email reminders for uncompleted lessons - Great service from Client Experience Manager

Cons

The dashboards with information and statistics about who is assigned to which lesson and which user has still lessons open are available, yet they could be more advanced based on our personal preferences.

I LOVE this software

2017-04-14

Pros

It's the easiest way to onboard new employees, and (as an employee who has been onboarded with it), it's way more effective than traditional methods.

Cons

I'm sure there could be more functionality, but I don't feel like I'm missing anything.

Easy LMS that is nimble and employee friendly

2017-06-16

Pros

It allows us to automatically distribute lessons in bite-sized chunks to ensure learning happens continuously.

Cons

I want to see their new feature rollout soon (they tantalize me with things on their product roadmap and make me impatient).

Easy to Use and Manage!

2017-02-06

Intuitive use, ease and simplicity are Lessonly's strengths. As a learner I appreciate the variety of ways curriculum is delivered (cards, screen shots, videos, etc), all followed with a quick comprehension quiz to help me retain the info. I look forward to lessons about new product updates from our training team every week!

Pros

Intuitive and easy to use.

Cons

As a product designed primarily for educating employees, there's not very natural way for me to administer training or lessons for my external customers, but we still get some great content out there using this system.

Ensure Learning

With Lessonly I can quiz them in real time as they progress through the trainings, forcing them to consider and analyze the information in front of them in order to complete their lessons.

Pros

Easy to use and quick to make lessons with.

Cons

Not enough customization and assigning and organizing lessons can be a little confusing

Lessonly Works!

2019-01-17

This is very useful for those creating lessons for the first time.

Pros

You can track when employees begin and end lessons, and the 'grade' they get for each lesson (if you have quizzes in lessons).

Cons

Can be cumbersome to add a new administrator for auditing the lessons if there are a ton of lessons, as it seems you can only add an editor one lesson at a time.

Solid tool for training your employees

2019-02-12

Pros

I set up a whole IT course for new users to do as part of their onboarding process.

Cons

the only thing I can think of could use a little work on is the user management, i think it could be a little better and easier to add users and as well as remove them too.
