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.
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 $79 per month for a Standard account, and go up to $599+ per month for users who select the Enterprise option.
Online training courses can reduce new employee onboarding costs.
Courses can be deployed by non-technical users.
SkyPrep offers straightforward course building tools.
Once content is uploaded, it can be used in any course.
The platform helps educators and employers centralize their course materials.
We are a midsize municipal government agency and purchased SkyPrep for our LMS about a year ago. As the administrator for the LMS, I have been thoroughly impressed. The system has a very intuitive and user-friendly UI, our users require very little training to use it. They open it up and say, "oh, ok, I see my training pending my completion here. Seems easy enough." And that's it. Also from an admin side, its easy to use - I've trained several non-technical users on the admin role and I get similar feedback on ease of use. We also have a few 'group managers' who have security rights somewhere between admins and users. It's inexpensive, which is perfect for us with a limited budget. Several departments have created their own content in Powerpoint or videos, and we've launched it to users, and the group manager monitors completion. We partnered with external content providers as well, - that's where the big money seems to go, so its been more cost effective to develop our own, which is easy to do with their content creator tool. But SkyPrep accepts content in so many different formats, that we've been able to leverage various webinar recordings, Youtube videos, even DVD content and internally-developed policies in Word and PDF. Reporting is pretty simple - my only complaint is that the reporting options are somewhat limited. However, I sent an email to the service team making a request for an additional filter option, and - wham! They added it to my account. I was very impressed that they listened to my feedback and were so accommodating. That additional report has made my job much easier. Another thing I've been thoroughly impressed with is their frequent releases and enhancements. It always seems like they're adding some new cool feature that again makes my job easier - seems like the frequency is somewhere between monthly and quarterly. I still email my original contact on occasion with a question or comment, and he always gets back to me within a day. Really, really pleased with SkyPrep.
I am still in the process of identifying a commercial LMS for several Aviation topics I want to make available for the Industry. Does Skyprep support Keynote files to be embedded into an online training program? Most of our Programs and Type Ratings have been developed using Keynote. Thank you for the feedback.
I have used the "chat" function multiple times and the Customer Support team always has a solution quickly!
Very easy to use. Can upload and begin training within minutes. Easy to add/revise training and trainee information. Trainees have found it very easy to navigate as well. Allows tracking of training completion by class, group, individual, time requirements for completion, automatic periodic (ie, annual) reassignment of training.
So easy to use. Can upload and begin training within minutes. Allows tracking of training completion, time requirements. Quick and easy to change and add training, trainees, etc.
Skyprep is a great LMS. We have used this platform to deliver training to our external partners over the past year, and have had very positive results. Their affordability, intuitive UI, and broad compatibility are some of the reasons we chose to work (and stay) with Skyprep. The user experience is fluid and simple, even from an administrator¿s perspective. With Skyprep, you do not need to take vendor administration training, or even have any background in LMS administration. Adding new materials can be as simple as dragging a PowerPoint presentation from your desktop to the browser window. Lastly, their support service and ticketing system works great, and I always receive very quick responses. My overall experience with Skyprep LMS is great, and I highly recommended it to anyone
I have 80 Employees working in 12 states. Skyprep allows me to keep them all trained and compliant. For my money Skyprep is unbeatable. The app is very easy to learn, its simple to add courses and exams. My file cabinets stay empty because Skyprep is storing all my records, the whole set up is just fantastic. The icing on the cake it the Customer Service. They are always available and always solve my problems. And trust me the problems are always on my end, the app has never failed. LOL I just can't find anything wrong with this LMS.
PROS - So easy to use! Visually, love the look as well. Learners get good communication from w/in the software w/ email notifications. Nice reporting feature. Love that you can easily update documents from w/in. As well as having materials be present in multiple courses. CONS - when you enroll a new user into a group, they get past courses, the portal loads SLOWLY..even moving from page to page w/in the portal there is delay, quicker would be better! MAJOR PRO - SUPPORT is amazing. Available, helpful, knowledgeable and the best part is if we suggest a change/addition, it gets serious consideration and for us, has actually been implemented in very short order! This is awesome. Kia very helpful as well.
We've been using product for almost 2 years to manage courses where our new employees watch videos and take quizzes. Skyprep eliminated a lot of hand-holding that we previously had to do. This software allowed us to create an online course that is easy to use and follow.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts Bryan. I actually wanted to let you know that we have a brand new interface that will make will all your daily tasks much easier!
We would be happy to show it to you.
Our organization has been using this LMS for about a year now and have had some pretty decent success. It's pretty easy to use, and there are a variety of ways to present the content. As any tool or software has a learning curve, this one has some challenges as far as how intuitive it is. However, I also believe it has a lot to do with your overall comfort level with learning new programs. The cons with this program are in reference to the overall look and feel of the pages, and the navigation bar is pretty generic, but it did not prevent us from continuing to use this tool. In fact, we upgraded to the Business Plan with the amount of new Learners we have, in addition to our interest in getting more customization. We have made a significant investment to try and capture as much benefit out of this LMS, as possible. That being said, it is a fairly economical solution
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.Read the full GetApp Analysis
