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.

The system is well suited when you want to learn something very specific and aligned with other similar training courses. It is also great because you can make learning paths for employees to have them learn things you think they may need. We also use this for security training. The only downfall is that sometimes things may be a little out of date and the length of some training programs. It is a lot of information thrown at you and not really any knowledge checks or labs to make things really sink in for the trainee.

Pluralsight

  • Finding ways to make courses more interactive and less lecture oriented would be helpful.
  • Quality of video and audio lectures could use updating to meet current expectations.
  • Continuing to stay on the bleeding edge of technology. Some classes can be outdated.

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 think pluralsight's price point is a little better, and I think the depth and breadth of classes offered is oriented more towards my field than Coursera. While Coursera has a nicer interface, Pluralsight, at the time, had more classes and seems to be designed for enterprise use whereas Coursera is more for individuals
