Do I need such a tool?

If the intentions of your business is to train its customers & or employees, then yes, absolutely! Training online can be used along side with the training process you are already using or even replace it completely.
The variety of benefits when switching to online training can include; decreased costs, replication in training, no time or place constraint & intelligible detailing on exactly who was trained in what. There are also some additional usage scenarios that you might discover to be helpful; for example, if you desire to create and then sell your own courses to end-users.

Every industry can benefit from proper training.

What are the core values of TalentLMS?

With TalentLMS we attempted to answer one prime inquiry: How can we produce real value to small organizations through e-learning? We have an existing hypothesis that is the grounds of everything have done with TalentLMS. The hypothesis relates with both e-learning and the environment that a small and upcoming business requires to adapt & flourish. Our primary hypothesis is this: for a small organization to adopt into e-learning we must first and before anything else, make it an extremely minimal & lean experience. TalentLMS makes worthwhile utilization of your time and maximizes the training production. To achieve this we have retired most of the elaborate but unessential functionalities and enforced an aesthetic integrity on material presentation.

Can I share my courses with non-registered users?

You sure can! By getting a share link for your courses, you can let an end-user to obtain them without registering.

Is it secure?

Transmitting all data over a secure and encrypted channel, makes it is as secure as it can get. Your content can't be shared by learners since the URL they get, expires after just few minutes.

Can I sell my Courses?

Correct. You can set the cost for your courses & collect the payments via your PayPal account.

Can I give certifications for completed courses?

Yes. You can allocate a certification to a course. Every user that finishes the course will obtain the certification. It’s very simplistic to design a certification or utilize a template.

Can I use my own domain?

Of course! You can choose a TalentLMS based domain or you can chart your own domain.

Can I create Tests and Surveys?

Yes! You can run tests or surveys to gather and analyze user submitted info.

Yes. TalentLMS has great communication tools. You can set world wide announcements that everyone can see, send direct messages to an single person, or even a group of users. Automated emails can also easily be configured and sent to end-users on special events. (for example you could send a ‘congratulations’ email each time a user achieves a certificate).

TalentLMS is comprehensive and affordable. It has what I need to submit my course for approval.

07/06/2017

The ability to present a professional product along with having innovative software to build upon.

Pros

When I first encountered TalentLMS, I was searching for an LMS to produce and sell a course. I knew nearly nothing about eLearning except for taking a course on BlackBoard and webinar platforms. Their website is choc-ful of training, from learning what an LMS is to, eLearning, different types of learners and instructing. In addition, the site has pre-loaded courses to teach you about the various benefits and what your users can expect.

Cons

At this point I do not have any real cons. As a creative, I would like to see more certificate options.

After searching through various LMS sites, TalentLMS was the only one with everything we needed.

24/05/2017

Biggest benefits are fast, reliable support and a very easy to use and full-featured administrator/instructor toolset with very minimal restrictions when it comes to the size of content uploads.

Pros

-Great support. -Very customizable. -Few limitations as far as content size/bandwidth restrictions compared to other LMS services. -Worked for everything we were aiming to do. -Very fast to set up and get looking the way you want.

Cons

-The "active user"/"user count" based subscription structure can feel a bit limiting at the lower subscription plans, especially if you have quite a few testers, but once you understand user groups and activating/deactivating users it's manageable. -(Only a problem with integrating using their public API): Currently no stripe support in their public API, but it is available on their site.

I spent a lot of time searching for an LMS system. Talent definitely exceeded my expectations.

24/05/2017

Pros

Super user-friendly. There were other LMS systems I tried out which didn't offer enough features or the price exceeded our budget. Talent offered a simple layout, the choice to customize our LMS, quizzes/tests, the ability to upload content, & an affordable price. I believe it's the most quality and affordable LMS you can find.

Cons

The majority of my content is video, so I do wish the uploading speed could be a little faster. Overall I am pleased.

The handling of the software is very intuitive and easy. There is no requirement for training.

24/05/2017

Pros

The most important funtions are available. You can quickly create new courses or add users. It's possible to create own user types with specific permissions.

Cons

Limited adaptability of the look (themes) to our corporate design. It would be helpful if more items could be customized via the drop down menu.

From setup to a great learning experience, 5-stars !

22/05/2017

I can reach a wider customer base that can not travel for training. I can quickly edit modules and add them to the curriculum. Ease of use allows me to spend less time putting courses online and more time with customers.

Pros

I have been and instructor & practitioner for a long time and used many LMS systems. TalentLMS really understands the process from both sides of the experience. It was super easy to setup and get going (0 html skills needed). Courses uploaded with no problems and they were easy to organize. I can't say enough. From the learner side of things, I found the interface intuitive and easy to navigate to find the courses. All around great experience. I even have clients wanting me to set up a system for them :)

Cons

I would like to see expanded payment options, but they have an API where you can hire a contract coder to write something up for this to happen.

Excellent software to conduct online training

18/05/2017

Pros

Easy to start and work with. You can set multiple training questions and you can also set eligibility criteria to decide whether that particular task or training was done correctly by the attendee.

Cons

Uploading screenshots is a little tricky. Setting up the own domain name for the training portal took a lot of time.

Easy to adapt platform for our small company. Great value for the price.

We are developing a standardized training platform for our company on a very limited budget. We are getting the features we need.

Simple to use. Stable and reliable platform. Easy to customize. unlimited content. It didn't take long for our team to grasp the concept and develope our own online training courses. We created a platform and course structure that meets our needs and matches our own structure.

Cons

Some limitations compared to other much more expensive LMS platforms. Some of the packaged quiz types are limited. Branch administrators have limited rights.

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
