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.

Litmos

Litmos is perfect for organizations that are starting to develop a training program. It is very easy to create courses/learning paths and roll the content out. It has helped our organization scale our training much faster than without software. If your company has a lot of face-to-face training time, this can help you leverage your time in a more efficient way. We try and take the "flipped classroom" approach to training. We assign content in Litmos to our new employees. After they have completed the training, we hold a series of face-to-face meetings to reinforce the content and answer additional questions. Doing training this way has made the face-to-face conversations more meaningful.

  • Admin portal is OK
Ron Massicotte profile photo
  • Presents our content. We use an authoring tool and the videos we create are easily uploaded to Litmos. We also have several types of recordings that we use for other session types and those are easy to load and make available in short order.
  • We can track user progress fairly easily, too.
  • Completion rates are easy to find.

For what we need in the very near future, Litmos does not offer us the required capability. Ideally, we are looking for an integrated LMS, coaching, mobile support and content creation platform. Litmos may have the LMS part covered but there are other platforms that do this better along with providing an integrated all-in-one service or at the very least support API integration with other vendors to meet our requirements.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Articulate allows for easier creation and then uploading using SCORM to Litmos

Return on Investment

  • We were able to lighten the work load on our finance team by moving course purchase processing to the online platform.
  • Learning team was able to reduce the amount of live training and travel.
Ron Massicotte profile photo
  • Having a dedicated LMS platform has allowed us to build out a culture of learning in our organisation. This culture then inspires our staff to continuously look to imporive their skills and feel confident that our business has invested in technologies that support their growth
  • ROI on time - before deploying the LMS, most of our training was classroom based and time consuming. Each region would manually track attendance and then report globally. Moving to the LMS has reduced the time component dramatically but increased our capability to deploy more training faster and of a higher quality globally
  • On the negative side, having hundreds of learning streams and courses is also overwhelming to users. We are finding it difficult to build out intelligent streams to guide and coach users on "what to do next". Too much content can sometimes be a bad thing and we are finding you need to balance out remote learning with live interactive training
