 Best choice for a small business LMS

I've reviewed them all for use with my business ( training firm). The matrix may not be the prettiest, but it does offer the best price to feature ratio of any LMS on the market.

Matrix - A LMS on the right path

13/10/2016

Reports are very important on my business, so I would like they were easy to use and the schedule reports sent to each organization by email could be beautifull and easy to make decisions, not in csv. Social media are important to promote engajement, and until now, neither the students nor I can´t publish their certificates directly from Matrix But at all, you´re amazing.

Very good training portal

13/10/2016

I use this training portal in my day to day work for an insurance broker that has to have over 2,000 sales staff fully trained. The portal allows me to easily create organisations, classes, lessons, modules and students and combine them all to create structured learning that is easy to track, easy to report on and all for an affordable monthly cost. The support forum is a great place to raise any issues and there's always someone available to answer any questions I have. It's not perfect and is still improving each month, but it allows me to do my job more efficiently and does a lot of heavy lifting that I would otherwise have to do with spreadsheets and time that I don't have.

Pros

Ease of use, customisable aspects.

Cons

Some issues embedding videos, but support forum is a big help with this.

Best LMS System

17/05/2016

Matrix, LMS is one of the easiest and most user friendly platforms I've ever used. I've built classes for the previous 5 years using Moodle and Blackboard, and Matrix is by far my favorite to use. I love the setup and flow to the courses with the use of the modules. There are many options to build content and assessments within each module that are easy to add, edit, and create. Students have virtually no learning curve as they start using the platform. The service team is continuously working to update the platform and add features as requested. I'm thrilled with the courses we've built for our program and look forward to growing with Matrix.

Extremely powerful

16/05/2016

I come from a software development background but nowadays I help small training companies get portals/websites and online learning courses up and live using MatrixLMS. I have pushed it to its limits by adding custom code, overriding default settings, etc. and I've always found the product to be powerful enough to do what I want and the customer support team to respond quickly with the information I need. I'm still staggered at just how much this product can do - no need for a separate website, Matrix LMS covers it.

Effective Adult Learning Platform

27/04/2016

We have used Matrix as our LMS for adult online learning with great success. It is flexible, and very easy to upload and edit even for me who is very much a neophyte at creating online learning. We ran a pilot group of 30 users around the world and collected their feedback via Survey Monkey. In ease of use, variety of learning tools, clarity of format, and use of multimedia elements the feedback indicated that between 90-100% of the users were satisfied and extremely satisfied with Matrix. When challenges arise, the support team responds within hours and has been extremely helpful. As well, the Matrix team does not sit on their laurels, but is constantly upgrading their product in response to user's needs. In my opinion, Matrix is a top notch LMS.

Great and easy LMS

22/04/2016

We use MATRIX LMS to provide peer-to-peer training. The online forums are a big asset to us since our coaches work remote and this is their way of connecting, sharing their experience and getting advice when they need it. Another thing is that the course is asynchronous, we really profit from this feature as it gives a chance to the learner to take the course anytime and anywhere. MATRIX is a very simple system compared to other online platforms we used, more user-friendly, and the content is easier to deal with. The MATRIX support team has been very responsive, every time we had an issue, we sent it through the forum and we got an instant reply, and that makes us feel valued as customers.

Great all round system!

19/04/2016

I have used a lot of systems throughout my career and I can finally say I have found a system that I am happy to recommend to others. The key points that I believe are most important to users are mentioned below: - Easy to use for both the administrator and more importantly the user - Looks modern, clean and neat - No annoying, nasty glitches - Compatible with a large range of other systems/programs - The customer service and support is amazing. I have never had to wait longer than 2 hours for a response to a question (and that's with time zone differences!) - Reasonable pricing with different plans available - No lock in contracts - Courses work great on a range of devices without having to make adjustments or changes for viewing. This includes mobiles, Ipads, mini Ipads and desktops.
