Great LMS platform for SMB

27/03/2017

TalentLMS is a great option when you have a tight budget. It has all the features you might be looking for in educaton software. They even let you customize your portal using css. What´s more it includes gamification and e-commerce options for your students. If you look at the competition these little things will cost you a lot. The site is responsive so you wont have problems in Mobile. Give it a try.

Pros

Courses+Gamification+CSS+Responsive

Cons

I would invest more in Design. It has a lot of features but it looks like the opposite.

The BEST LMS to start with!

24/03/2017

I own an LMS Consulting firm that brands the TalentLMS platform for smaller clients 200-400 Users/each, who cannot afford to have someone full time to manage their platform. I love the branch features. The customer support has been wonderful. It is VERY easy to use...so easy that ZERO onboarding is needed. Other platforms charge $$$ for someone to help you onboard for 2-3 Months. There is nt need for this with TALENT. It is that easy...very intuitive. ALL LMS platforms should be this easy! The value os the best out there that I have been able to find. The only one (and I mean only) limitation is for additional customization, beyond the basic offered, requires CSS & Javascript knowledge. But, i'm glad I discovered them. I had used several others in the past, who I would not recommend.

I've been using TalentLMS for training projects for over three years now, and they've never failed to deliver. We started off with a very minimal training concept, and as we've expanded our needs they've always been right there with new features to match.

All the good features in one place

20/03/2017

When I found TalentLMS I was amazed by the number of boxes I could thick off from my requirements document. These guys have included the most useful features in the system, and on top of that they are always open to feedback from the community, constantly adding useful functionalities. Customisable interface, white label and customisable branches, unlimited user types, and event engine are some of the good features for us. Another great thing about TalentLMS is the high quality, timely technical support.

Best LMS for Our Business Needs

20/03/2017

Talent LMS provides an all-round solution for hosting content for our technology company. It's always reliable and easy to use. The small learning curve means that several members of our organization can become involved in course creation, even if they have no previous instructional design experience. We have created several certification courses in Talent LMS and leveraged all supported content types, with a focus on video and edited text.

Talented approach to T & D

20/03/2017

From the moment I began to investigate TalentLMS I knew this was a fresh approach to an age old problem: How to motivate employees to compete with themselves. The platform is simple and powerful. Reliable and refreshing. It's my favorite and I've seen way too many learning platforms. It's built on an engine, but it has the flexibility a good instructional designer needs to customize the learning experience. Mobile friendly and robust. Great detailed and customizable reporting...and badges and progress infographics. I could go on, but I gush. I'm just a client, but I feel part of this great team. The best.

Pros

Great design. Powerful LMS administration tools...easily accessible. Intuitive for the learner, instructor and administrator. Highly customizable, with branches that can be branded for teams, departments or even different products. Easy to replicate learning objects for different users. Personalization for system and course communication. Responsive support. Great culture.

Cons

One of their strengths is a weakness. The platform is cloud-based so updates are easy and keep the platform working effectively with little or no administrative intervention. But some of the updates can affect third party integrations. When updates come through, administrators should be informed of potential incompatibilities and plan for the update. I am confident that updates will be done with advanced notice in the future. They are responsive to feedback too! One more thing, I wish it could read my mind.

GetApp Analysis

TalentLMS is an online learning management system that can be used by organizations to train employees, partners, customers or students. It enables trainers to offer online training to a lot of people in a reproducible way. The course marketplace allows course sellers a channel to promote their courses and buyers to obtain direct access to quality content.

TalentLMS is suitable for organizations or departments within organizations that specialize in training provision and are amenable to an online learning model. It can be used by businesses of varying sizes, from the micro business with five users to the large organization of 1,000+ monthly registered users.

TalentLMS main features include course creation from content around the web, learning assessment through tests and surveys, an easy reporting system, course sharing with non-registered users, and a marketplace for buying and selling courses.

What is TalentLMS?

From course content creation to student assessment, setting up a user-friendly e-learning course on an attractive platform is tedious work. TalentLMS has found a way to make all these less daunting. It allows trainers to create courses using their own documents and presentations, as well as repurpose content from online tools like SharePoint, YouTube and Wikipedia.

In addition to buying and selling courses, trainers can build tests and surveys, share courses with non-registered users, and issue completion certifications. For customized environments involving certain user subsets, branches (which have their own URLs, courses, users and themes), can be created. Role-based access controls can be assigned for maximum control over what a user can and cannot do. Reports are accessible from a single page and managed using a single sidebar.

Main Features

Creating Courses

Course creation flexibility on an easy-to-use platform allows trainers to concentrate on course quality and not the intricacies of the course creation tool. To build a training course, instructors can use their own materials or insert content from the web. Accepted file types vary, and file upload limit depends on the subscription plan. To insert web content, use keywords or copy/paste the URL.

When course creation is done, you get to view the course as a learner would, as well as take tests and surveys, if any. Alterations and additions can be made by going back to the course’s edit pane any time.

Assessing Learning Outcomes

Training is just half the battle. Gauging how much learners take away from a course and how it can be improved for future course takers makes up the other half. There are two ways to assess learner outcomes – through tests and surveys. To create a test, the instructor selects the course where the test/survey will be added into.

For both tests and surveys, there are two question types – multiple choice and fill in the blanks. The correct answers should be provided for tests. For surveys, there are no right or wrong answers.

Generating Reports

TalentLMS lets you generate reports about users, courses, branches, groups, tests and surveys. The report overview shows system logins and course completion data for the current day, the day before, the week, month, year and a specific period of time.

For user reports, select a user from the users list to see their data. You will see which courses have already been completed, not yet started and still in progress.

Cloning Courses and Sharing Courses with Non-Registered Users

TalentLMS allows instructors to clone their courses and assign them to users in different groups or branches. Cloning a course means duplicating an already existing one. Once cloned, the trainer may opt to edit its properties or content to better serve the target learner base.

To introduce courses to learners not registered with TalentLMS, simply invite people by typing in their email addresses or send them the link to your courses via social media and other channels.

Buying and Selling Courses

TalentLMS is as close as you can get to a one-stop online learning management shop that allows training professionals to create custom courses and make them available to students and other content specialists through the content marketplace.

You will need a PayPal account when setting a price for the courses you want to sell. To purchase a course, browse through available courses in the Course Catalog window. When a course has already been selected, you will be redirected to the PayPal site for payment.

Integrations

TalentLMS can be integrated with more than 300 applications through Zapier.com. Some of these apps are Evernote, Facebook, Dropbox, Asana, Basecamp, MailChimp, Salesforce, Podio and Eventbrite.

It supports website integration, too. If you’re using WordPress, there’s a special widget that lets you login to TalentLMS directly from your site. The TalentLMS plugin can be used to list your courses, content and their details. Users can also sign up to TalentLMS and buy courses through your site. TalentLMS categories can be made into WordPress categories and courses into blog posts.

Pricing

TalentLMS follows a two-prong pricing strategy: based on monthly active users and number of registered users. For monthly active users, the cheapest is Small Unlimited priced at $79 per month and supports up to 25 active users. Premium Unlimited, which costs $379 per month, can handle up to 500 active users, unlimited registered users, unlimited courses and 300 MB per file upload limit. Regardless of the subscription package, each additional active user costs $4 per month.

For the second pricing category, a Free subscription can accommodate up to 5 users, 10 courses and an upload limit of 20 MB per file. Paid packages start at Small, which is priced at $29 per month. It supports up to 25 users, unlimited courses and a file upload limit of 100 MB. The costliest is Premium priced at $349 per month. It can handle an unlimited number of courses, a file upload of up to 300 MB, and has a user registration limit of 1,000. For more users and additional requests, plans can be created individually.

Bottom Line

  • Easy online learning management system for organizations looking to train employees, partners, customers and students
  • Create courses using your own materials or content found on the web
  • Suitable for all business sizes
  • Build tests and surveys to assess learning outcomes
  • Buy/sell courses via the content marketplace
