Litmos is rapidly change the way my company thinks about eLearning

Verified Reviewer  4th of August

Alan Thomas Payne, Director of Salesforce.com Global Competence Center at Voith Industrial Services Beteiligungsverwaltungs GmbH
We began with Litmos to fill specific needs for compliance training for our users across multiple counties. Now that we have a better understand of all of the great stuff we can do with Litmos, the Change request don't stop coming.

Pros: Litmos is both easy and useable for all of our employees. Whether they are within the Company Network, on the road with a mobile device, at home from their private devices or in the Internet Café around the corner! Learning should be fun, effective and not add to the stress of our daily job. Simple holistic UI that doesn't overpower the user. Makes life easy for our 'Salesforce #AwesomeAdmin!

Cons: As a seasoned #Salesforce #AwesomeAdmin I miss the flexibility of the Reporting/Dashboard functionalities provided by the platform. Litmos would up the bar even more if I had these tools without having to commission professional services.

Litmos is My Choice

Verified Reviewer  3rd of August

Sharon Zysk, Systems Management Specialist at CNYHHN, INC.
We have used Litmos to fill our need for easily accessible on line training for our users across multiple counties. It has improved our ability to not only manage regulatory and mandatory training, but to manage our staff compliance across the board for all of the positions within our Agency.

Pros: Litmos is both easy and fun to use! In our industry, we work hard and deal with many intense situations on a daily basis. Litmos allows us to offer fun and innovative ways to share information, collaborate with the Discussion forums and have fun with gamification. If we have to learn, it should be fun, effective and not add to the stress of our daily job.

Cons: I would love to see development regarding linking courses together. For example, one online course serves as the initial foundation and is good for one year. After that, they take a refresher course that would satisfy the need for renewal. Currently there is no way to do that. This is critical for our industry. We also need a way to offer the initial course as an ILT, then apply an online course as the refresher.

Go for it. It is a great option at a great price. I've reviewed other LMS systems and this one is by far the best option for us and I would recommend it for anyone looking for an LMS solution.

Integration Rich, Easy to Use

Verified Reviewer  3rd of August

Assistant Director Training Department (Computer Software company, 51-200 employees)
We've been using Litmos for a little over a year, coming from another LMS system that did not meet our needs. Litmos is very easy to learn, we were building courses quickly once we got in. They have a great array of features for course building with different module types, including assessments, videos, text, and integrations with GoToTraining and other delivery tools that makes it easy to created a mixed deliverable which keeps people more engaged than slide after slide after slide. A for that. They also update their product regularly with new features, and make it easy to learn/find these by notifications at the top of the site, and offering new release webinars and videos parked on YouTube. A on their communication of new features. Reporting takes a bit of getting used to, as you can drill down from a broad set of figures to a granular individual student level, I often find it best to export these as Excel files and manipulate the data with my own formulas and pivot tables. B on reporting capabilities. We use Litmos to train thousands of clients annually as opposed to training just a few hundred of our own staff - our DB at this point consists of 10,000 users and considering the volume, we very rarely have issues with the Litmos tool itself from an accessibility or bug perspective. As a professional trainer of software products, I can say confidently that that is a true accomplishment. A on code stability! Best advice is to plan our your organizational needs as a flow chart so you get it right the first time.

Pros: Integrations with many outside products, including GoToTraining/Webinar, Salesforce, Wordpress, several shopping cart tools, and more. Easy to learn, easy to course build. Several options for organizing by Team or Learning Path. time.

Cons: Two minor pet peeves in course building - no "center" option on image alignment - you have to either code it in, or put it in the middle of a 3 column centered table. No spell check in standard typing view, you have to go into the source code view to see spelling errors. True con lately is support turn around time. Support is through online ticketing system, even if you call in, they simply file the ticket on your behalf. I understand the need for that, as we urge our own clients to use our self-service portals first. But we are currently in the position of needing assistance with the Litmos/Salesforce integration, and we are closing in on two weeks and still do not have resolution. I have twice proposed meeting times several days in the future and had team members on standby to drop what they are doing to meet with a Litmos rep when they have time for us, and both times got no response until after the proposed meeting dates. This needs serious improvement.

Easy, focused on corporate education and a better partner you cannot find!t

Verified Reviewer  3rd of August

Robin Bowles, Manager of Corporate Education at E-MDs
We are a healthcare software company rapidly growing with needs to rapidly deploy education across our global employee network leveraging technology to avoid increases in head count. We implemented Litmos without a hiccup and our employees are 100% engaged! Our 90 day trending shows no end in sight to the benefits this incredibly easy to use technology will bring. Every person we encounter at Litmos is devoted to our success. A rare find in today's business world. I highly recommend you take a look if education is at the forefront of your company objectives!

Pros: easy technology with seamless implementation, customization to your needs, reporting available for most anything you want to measure, can use all kinds of different mediums that are easy to upload and use, cost to value is more than other systems researched, best online help I've ever seen

Cons: would love to see more delineation in privileges allowing me to customize for my company's use and specific needs

Helps us meet our customers' needs

Verified Reviewer  3rd of August

Zachary Bennett, Design Manager at Eagle Productivity Solutions
We use Litmos to host eLearning for our clients when their LMS's don't make the cut. Sometimes they're looking for a way to deliver training to personnel outside their organization, other times they need to meet a critical training deadline that their internal LMS couldn't satisfy. No matter the business problem, Litmos allows our team to get courses out the door quickly to audiences ranging from tens of learners to thousands of learners.

Pros: The price is right. It's super easy to scale your license allotment up or down with training demand. The UI is simple and easy to use. Reports are exactly what you would expect. Bulk user management is as easy and flexible as it gets!

Cons: Sometimes we have to collate a couple different reports to get all of the columns we need in one report. Not the end of the world, but it takes some tinkering to figure out which reports have exactly the right information in them.

Our use case is simple and Litmos meets our needs perfectly. It's stable, reliable, and much easier to use than other LMS's we've used in the past. Would buy again.

Very Solid LMS

Verified Reviewer  3rd of August

President (Professional Training & Coaching company, 11-50 employees)
We have been using Litmos for a few years and it has been a very good experience. There are still a couple of features for sorting and moving users between teams and courses I would like to see, but since day one this has been one of the easiest and yet robust LMS.

Pros: Easy to use and set up for the first time. Lots of good features for courses and adding various media.

Cons: Still really clumsy on selecting users in bulk and moving them between teams.

New to the app

Verified Reviewer  21st of June

Performance Manager and Trainer (Automotive company, 201-500 employees)
Once I found the Litmos app I downloaded it for android and iOS. Overall I felt the app is very user friendly and makes training on the go quick and simple. However I found a few differences when I attempted to use the app.

Pros: It is available for both apple and android products and is easy to use regardless of platform.

Cons: I was able to login using a login instead of an email on iOS but needed an email to login on the android platform. Granted most of our users have their email address as the login but for those who do not this could present a problem.

Litmos really delivers!

Verified Reviewer  31st of March

Timothy E. Gibbs, MPH, BA, NPMc, Executive Director at Delaware Academy of Medicine and Delaware Public Health Association
I've been working with technology for 35 plus years and I've certainly seen my share of great products, as well as those which fall short of what they promise. I'm happy to report that the LITMOS Learning Management System exceeds expectations in every dimension: 1) It is affordable 2) It is truly intuitive and easy to use 3) Their LITMOS Technical Support Team is outstanding. In addition, we are using ISpring (for SCORM Conversion of our materials) and the two systems integrate seamlessly.

Pros: Affordable, easy to use, outstanding technical support

Cons: Nothing to report at this time.

So happy we picked Litmos as our LMS

Verified Reviewer  30th of March

Maxanne Whitehead, Training Facilitator at Hardware Resources
I am part of a training team of two for a manufacturing company in the cabinet industry that operates nationwide and some overseas. We use Litmos to train our sales team (both inside & outside) as well us our customer service team and product managers. Eventually Litmos will be opened up to our manufacturing plant, warehosue employees and accounting team so that the whole company has easy access to training. Litmos is so easy to use and very intuitive. My learners can easily access what they need and from an admin standpoint uploading is a breeze! I rarely need tech support when using Litmos (maybe twice a year), but when I do it can be difficult to have someone easily help me. Instead of one point of contact where I can just pick up the phone and get an answer I am always directed to their technical support which is email only and not timely in their responses. But like I said - I rarely need tech support! I would definitely recommend Litmos to anyone looking for an LMS!

Pros: Easy to navigate for users/learners.... Admin side has great access to reports and tracking and it is super easy to upload content! Rarely do I need tech support. There has really only been one technical issues in the year+ that we have been using Litmos.

Cons: The technical support can be slow to respond to needs. I don't like how tech support is only through email because I work better talking out the problem on the phone.

Growing alongside Litmos

Verified Reviewer  30th of March

Talia McDougal, Training and Franchisee Compliance Manager
I have been thankful to adopt the Litmos LMS with my job last year for many reasons. It is a user friendly platform and our ways of utilizing it are expanding. It's been great growing alongside Litmos. As new features develop, our company needs and ideas coincide almost perfectly. After attending the Litmos C3 Conference last year and learning a ton, I'm excited to see what's in store for this year and unveiling even more ways to utilize the program. My goal is to continue to see more use within our company for internal training purposes with multi-level users. Litmos is making that goal attainable as it expands, listens to feedback from existing customers, and supports users to see the potential in the platform!

Pros: Ability to upload documents, easy to read dashboard, mass management as well as personalized feedback options, account maintenance is easy especially password resets. Leaderboard offers friendly competition and incentive for users. Behind the scenes, it's easy to see where a user is experiencing difficulty or having trouble.

Cons: Integration to SF cannot copy emails or uploaded documents. Sometimes too many emails are sent to users overwhelming them when completing courses. Some customer service reps and account managers are excellent, others do not follow through. Litmos Author information is misleading in terms of what features are possible through the program. Inconsistent limitations on uploading videos, etc., as well as sometimes "glitchy" processing of not saving users' answers, not opening presentations, etc.

Global brands that use Litmos LMS include YouTube, Samsung, Xero, ExactTarget, and Zumba.

Instead, teachers and trainers are able to build courses, assign them to learners, and track the results through an intuitive user interface. White label solutions are available for organizations that are interested in custom branding, templates, and reporting.

Key features of Litmos LMS include an advanced course builder, assessments and quizzes, surveys, instructional led training (ILT), gamification, and an e-commerce module that helps trainers monetize their courses using pre-packaged features. Checklists, course libraries, reports, and certifications are also available.

What is Litmos LMS?

A user-friendly learning management system that’s been designed to help organizations save time and money, Litmos LMS is used worldwide by businesses of all sizes. The platform fuels education programs and supports professional teams during periods of growth.

At its core, Litmos LMS is a cloud-based learning management solution that training administrators can rely on to build, manage, and deploy professional looking online courses. These courses can be designed to include a mix of multimedia files, including Flash, audio, and video. They may also include PowerPoint presentations and content created in any SCORM-compliant authoring tool. Litmos LMS’s built-in Assessment & Survey editor measures knowledge and surveys learners to provide administrators with feedback on their courses, as well.

Main Features

Course Builder

Using the Litmos LMS course builder, training administrators can build their own online courses. Embedded content creation tools support multiple formats. Litmos LMS’s course builder is designed in the same way people think, with three main category types: upload, create, and browse.

Upload your own content from outside Litmos, including any videos, SCORM, or audio files you plan to include in your course. In the Create section, you’ll be able to generate Litmos formatted content, including assessments, ILT, and surveys. Finally, use the Browse section to find and copy content from your account into new courses.

Course Library

Giving learners a course library provides them with a way to browse, search, and self-enroll in online courses. Learners who click on the course library will be able to see all the courses they have access to, including courses they have already completed. Learners should also be able to sign-up for additional online courses from within the course library.

As the training administrator, you have the option to add new courses to your library at any time. You can add any course to the course library by clicking on the “Settings” tab in the “Courses” area of your account. Common examples of courses added to company libraries include product demos, optional professional development courses, and advanced information on topics that are covered in mandatory online courses.

Reports & Dashboards

Reporting tools allow training administrators to review the performance of their learners and gain deeper insights into how their training programs are impacting employee development efforts. In addition to traditional reports, users also have the ability to create custom reports and have them delivered via email.

Visit the Reports tab to get access to real-time results and stay on top of the progress of individual trainees. All reporting information can be exported as PDF or CSV files. Reports should also include date ranges, which means you can select specific periods of time to pull data from when generating your reports.

Gamification

Gamification features within Litmos LMS help training administrators engage and motivate their learners. In doing this, administrators must rely on achievements, points, and badges, which are awarded based on a learner’s activity within the system.

To take advantage of gamification, you’ll need to enable the feature and create badges or points for your organization. Determine what your learners will need to accomplish in order to earn each badge, and Litmos LMS will handle the implementation. Learners will continue taking courses as usual, and Litmos will distribute points and badges automatically. Learners can see the badges they’ve earned by clicking on the “Achievements” tab.

Integrations

Litmos LMS integrates with a number of third-party applications, including Shopify, TribeHR, Dropbox, Okta Identity Management, Box, and Salesforce App Cloud.
