We did not have an LMS at CoolIT when I started. After looking over a number of solutions, we came down to three top contenders. Upon meeting with the team at SkyPrep, weighing the cost vs benefit, and the consistent professionalism of the SkyPrep team, our choice became easy. The SkyPrep team are open to partnering and very helpful when I need some assistance or advice on the best way to complete a task. Both myself and the HR Manager are thrilled with our choice.
SkyPrep has a number of features that has made my job as the one person learning team easier. I love the dashboard that my participants see and how simple/user friendly it is for them. The ease to add courses, materials and create learning paths has been a wonder. The ability to create our own custom email templates, landing page and branding has made the LMS our own rather than appearing to be from a third party. Finally, it's awesome that my learners can access the LMS via their phone, laptop or desktop. It is helping us create a true learning culture here at our companyl.
I would like the reporting to be a bit more robust and friendly. I can get what I need, but I need to do some work for it. The only other thing I would like is when I'm needing to check on a learner's progress and pop into their account, when I go to switch back to my admin account, it doesn't bring me back to the screen I was working on before I logged into the user. Both things are small, and easily worked around.

Overall SkyPrep has allowed our company to deliver training more easily to our entire company. The utility industry has a growing number of compliance training that every employee has to complete. Without SkyPrep, we would not be able to deliver training efficiently to meet deadlines.
When SkyPrep says they are user-friendly, they mean it. SkyPrep offers users simple options to navigate through the platform with a visual interface that eliminates the clutter that text can bring. Our users are also able upload and submit their own certifications which helps them have more control over their learning profile. As administrators we like how easily we can design and deliver online courses in the platform. SkyPrep gives the option to draw from several types of media and various media sources to build a course. We very easily created groups in the platform to deliver custom content through the platform along with company-wide training initiatives which we can analyze through generating a number of reports. Finally, it is very easy to customize the platform for branding. When our users log in to SkyPrep, they feel ownership because they see our logo and colors.
SkyPrep is geared to make the online learning experience smooth, which it does very well. The instructor-led courses are a little more cumbersome to schedule, because there is not an option to set recurring courses.

I was skeptical about the support I would receive from SkyPrep initially. However, first of all, it is so easy to use, we haven’t required much support over about the past 8 years! But the few times we have required support, they have been quick to respond and extremely helpful, particularly [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]. They can walk you through anything! Skyprep has been a fantastic platform for our business. We have a second platform that is very difficult to use, and the explanations are difficult to understand. Skyprep has been a wonderful choice for us. Linda B.
The ease of setting up training programs is the best feature!
It does not grade multiple choice or fill-in-the blank tests.

SkyPrep is an easy to use platform. The Customer success leader, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], is excellent. He is very helpful. The features that make it easy to use are the course upload and adding groups. Learning paths are easy to set up as well.
The reporting functions could be improved upon. Having an integrated system with an HRIS would be helpful, especially as my organization grows. I have used LMS systems in the past that are leaders in the industry. SkyPrep still has a ways to go with all of the functionality of the more well established systems, but the price and customer service is a plus.

Skyprep is excellent to work with and provide great customer service. We appreciate their efforts to evolve and update their features. If I had to choose another LMS all over again, I would choose SkyPrep again!
The software is quite easy to learn/use and helps our team work more efficiently in delivering, tracking, and reporting on trainings. The help feature provides excellent resources for learning and navigating the system (directions, pictures, and links to other resources). The content developer is excellent for categorizing the courses and is very user friendly. The amount of storage provides the capability to store everything in one location. Administrators can make updates to the LMS without having to submit request to SkyPrep or our company’s IT department. Our IT department is completely circumvented with this platform. The help desk is quick to get back with us when a ticket is submitted, and the support is excellent and consistent with very little wait time. They are continuously improving their services and features, as well as provide quick updates and customizations.
Other than a few extra clicks when navigating to and through trainings, nothing. The program works consistently and the LMS performs every time. If you encounter any unexpected limitation, all you need to do is call SkyPrep and their team will explain possible solutions or work through the limitation to create a new solution.

Well-designed online courses can save companies thousands of dollars in employee training costs, however many businesses are hesitant to move their training courses online due to fears about technical issues and unexpected costs. SkyPrep is a web-based training platform that aims to alleviate these concerns by offering straightforward course building tools that even non-technical users can employ.
SkyPrep provides cloud-based software that allows employers and educators to create their own online courses. Developed for non-technical users who want to quickly build courses online, SkyPrep helps its users centralize their educational materials in a secure web-based environment.
SkyPrep is a cloud-based platform that provides users with tools for creating and organizing educational training courses online. Organizations are able to quickly build courses by uploading existing content—such as PowerPoint presentations, videos, and Excel files—and creating interactive quizzes and tests. Students and employees are then invited to participate in educational training sessions that take place entirely on the web.
Organizations that use SkyPrep benefit by being able to upload their course materials into a centralized environment, where they can be accessed 24/7 from anywhere in the world. Employees who telecommute are able to complete required compliance and safety training courses without stepping foot inside their home offices, while larger franchise organizations are able ensure that all employees have received a uniform education about their companies’ policies and procedures, regardless of their locations.
Aimed at non-technical users who are looking for ways to quickly create their own courses online, SkyPrep supports organizations of all sizes. The platform is used by companies with a few dozen employees just as frequently as it’s used by those with thousands of employees.
Within the organizations that rely on SkyPrep for online training, the cloud-based platform is most frequently utilized by human resources departments. However, SkyPrep’s training platform is straightforward enough that it can be setup by anyone within an organization, regardless of the user’s technical background or experience.
Educators and employers can upload any existing course content they’ve created directly into SkyPrep. SkyPrep accepts files including PowerPoint, Word, Excel, and SCORM content. Once the content has been uploaded, it can be dragged-and-dropped into any of a user’s courses.
To add new content to your courses, click on the appropriate course name and then click the “Items” tab. Choose “Add New Material,” and then select from a list of supported materials. Included on this list are many different files types, including PDF, Word, Excel, and HTML files, along with YouTube and Vimeo links. You can also create a link or embed a website.
Using the Exam Manager tool, users can create quizzes and tests for their students. Any test that a user creates can be dragged-and-dropped into a course. Users have multiple formats to choose from when designing their quizzes. Quizzes can be auto-graded.
When you create a new exam, you’re able to determine things like time limits and percentages that are required to pass the exam. You can also categorize your exam, and select how many times a learner can take the exam per course. Next, you’ll want to add each of your questions, choosing between multiple choice, true/false, fill in the blank, or short answer.
SkyPrep’s messaging and notification platform allows instructors to remind learners about upcoming courses and due dates. Depending on the settings an instructor has selected, learners can be sent automated email reminders whenever new content is available.
Compose a message to your learners from within SkyPrep’s platform. You can select which individual learners should receive your message, or you can elect to send a message to a certain group or everyone enrolled in a specific course. As a trainer, you also have the option to receive messages from learners in your SkyPrep inbox.
SkyPrep provides its instructors with the ability to download real-time reports about all of their learners. SkyPrep provides a wide variety of reporting options, all designed to outline users’ performance and analytics. The three main types of reports are user reports, group reports, and course reports.
Get access to a summary of all your courses by clicking on the “Data” tab along the top of the SkyPrep platform. Choose which type of report you’d like to build—courses, users, groups, or exams—and download the report. You have the option to download reports as CSV/Excel files or in Zoho Viewer.
Many students will pay to learn about topics in an online setting. SkyPrep provides educators with ways to sell their online courses to anyone, anywhere. In fact, learners can even switch the platform to access courses in their native languages. Instructors receive immediate payments whenever a user enrolls through the platform.
In order to sell courses, you’ll need to turn on SkyPrep’s “sell mode” feature. Click on the “Customization” tab from the homepage to begin this process, and then select “Settings.” When you check the box next to “I’d like to sell courses,” you’ll be able to start monetizing your courses to sell to students online.
SkyPrep offers an API to all users.
SkyPrep charges based on the number of active users on the platform each month. A user can login to the system and take as many courses as he or she wants, and it will count as one active user for that month. If the user doesn’t login at all during the following month, then he or she will not count as an active user during that month. Pricing plans start at $449 per month for a Standard account, and go up to $599+ per month for users who select the Enterprise option.
