A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

Where it's strong: Linux, open source technologies, web development administration, virtualization and automation, cloud platforms like AWS and Azure, CI/CD trainingWhere it's lacking: The more traditional aspects of IT -- Windows, Active Directory, IT Service Management. storage administration and networking basics... advanced networking also, like CCNA, would be nice.

iSpring Suite

iSpring is well suited for beginners and advanced users. iSpring simplifies the user's ability to develop training, take screen recordings, and combine them into a well put together training that can be published in multiple formats. Uploading the SCORM format to an LMS is easy and works well without a hitch each time

Pros

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

  • The videos are short and easy to ingest. This is super important! Long videos get boring and people lose interest quickly
  • New training videos for new technology are always being added regularly
  • In addition to new videos, existing training videos are updated when software or technology changes, ensure that you always have current information while you're learning

iSpring Suite

  • Screen recording is great. Very simple to use and delivers exactly what is expected by us in terms of quality.
  • Powerpoint conversion is a simple process. In fact, it is possible to add a lot of additional resources to make it more compelling and engaging. It may generate a lot of benefits for companies that already have many PPT files.
  • Quizzes and interactive assessments are also a great feature, with multiple types of questions. It can be mixed with learning content to create a process based on continuous learning and testing.
  • It exports the project in different publishing formats, so it makes much easier for non-technical users to create and export any content and then publish it on LMS platforms.

Cons

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

  • The merger with A Cloud Guru has confused things a bit. They're slowly replacing the Linux academy branded training with ACG training (which is fine) but if we found ourselves losing access to training videos while we were in the midst of watching them
  • A more robust community would be nice. There's the Slack channel, but I wish there was more robust community features
  • It would be nice to be able to download videos locally on desktops and laptops. This helps greatly with rewinding the video to reiterate key learning points

  • Not certain if their continuous YouTube posted Webinars do equity as a component of their abilities increase. The introduction style is normal, with regards to Webinar compose preparing program.
  • The main change as of now that I might want to see is with the following usefulness. I find that I regularly time out when endeavoring to discover the quantity of perspectives and one of a kind perspectives of specific records that I have transferred.
  • Concerning iSpring Quizzes, I might want to be able to design the pages in an all the more simple way and furthermore, when the tests are seen on a cell phone, the real page that we have set up can be seen. We have put pictures on the page for the understudies to answer inquiries concerning just to discover on the cell phone they can't see the pictures.

The site can have some issues. It can be difficult to return to the training module you were viewing after some time away from the site and you have to relogin. We've also had issues where the session will time out at random points, which makes it frustrating to move on to the next videos in the module when you have to re-login and try and find which one you left off on.

The software integration was appealing to our department--particularly to the faculty who had not, prior to the pandemic, taught online--because it integrates with an already known entity: PowerPoint. Furthermore, iSpring's assessment builder with its wide variety of questions is extremely easy to use--basically plug and play--for any level of comfort that a faculty member has in terms of online teaching.

I've never had to communicate with Linux Academy's customer support aside from some minor billing issues, which were easily ironed out in a very quick manner.

We haven't had an issue with iSpring support in the time we have been using the application. The few times we have reached out for advice, we have been sent replies within a day. This is only due to the time zone difference. There have been times when troubleshooting has resulted in a message that the function we were looking for or the content we were looking to create is not possible, but in every case, our request has been passed onto the development team for follow up and possible integration with future patches.

Alternatives Considered

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

We've tried CBT Nuggets, Pluralsight, ITProTV, and even official training programs directly from the software vendors. Linux Academy outranks them all simply because of the quality of the training videos compared to the monthly costs. It's hard to beat its affordably, especially when the training material is such high quality and engaging

iSpring Suite

Therer are several other interactive video creation tools out there, such as Camtasia, Adobe Captivate and even PowerPoint on its own, but none of them come close to offering the galaxy of features that is served up by iSpring Suite, and it's the easiest to learn and use with affordable price tags

Return on Investment

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

  • Linux Academy keeps us on the cutting edge, that's a huge positive impact.
  • We're able to use Linux Academy to help earn IT certifications for our employees
  • It keeps our employees wanting to learn more, which improves our skillsets as a whole.

iSpring Suite

  • We have been able to standardize training, making a positive impact on our ROI because we are giving employees the same information at the same time. Before our organization used iSpring to create simple awareness training, we would rely on communication flow from managers to employees. This was like a game of telephone and we never had the uniformity of information like we get when we use eLearning.
  • We have been able to provide our customers with a quick and cheap form of training on the equipment that we produce for them. Customers love this, and we have a much better utilization rate using iSpring versus other content authoring software.
  • Our organization has started to utilize eLearning created by iSpring as a way to introduce topics and prepare employees for instructor-led trainings. We have cut the time instructors are in class by a quarter.
  • We have used iSpring to reduce the amount of instructor-led classes. We have eliminated more than one-third of our instructor-led classes that we converted to eLearning. This frees up a lot of time and allows our employees to take the training as needed.
