Absorb Anywhere LMS

Absorb worked well for us for a number of years but once we started to push the limits of the software, the company and the product let us down. Support became unresponsive and the product enhancements that we were told were coming never did.

General Assembly is an awesome tool to use when you want to gain more knowledge about a certain topic. It provides workshops and classes that you can take on a one-time basis with no contract. This is a great way to dip your toe in the water and see if you want to take a full on course

Alternatives Considered

Absorb Anywhere LMS

At the time of selection, we went with Absorb as they were one of the few that could handle online transactions for courses. We are in the process of migrating to Skilljar and will be discontinuing our subscription to Absorb in 2018.

I don't typically use Kahn Academy, but it serves a similar purpose which is training an individual in different topics. I personally love being able to attend classes in person at General Assembly so I would chose that over Kahn Academy. However, Kahn Academy is free and General Assembly sometimes costs money. All in all I would still chose General Assembly
