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.

Pluralsight

If you are wanting to advance your career or simply expose yourself to new technologies, it's a great tool to achieve that end. If you are in a new role and need to "catch up" on something, it gives you ways to learn on the fly. If you are hoping to become a subject matter expert on a particular topic, I think you would need to find a role that would provide you with more actual experience. Pluralsight is more of a lecture based system than actual real world experience, which are not the same things

  • It gives you a central location to track progress, listen to lectures and take exams on the subject matter.
  • It gives the company one way to manage training across IT, marketing and other business disciplines.
  • The user interface is fairly easy to use and the number of courses or subjects available is quite good.

Cons

  • Customer Support is unresponsive and poor
  • Inconsistent interface in the product
  • Reporting out of Absorb is cumbersome
  • No search functionality within courses.
Ron Massicotte profile photo
  • Offer some videos specifically to provide a more in-depth look at certain tools and attributes, rather than how to use the tools in a project.
  • Some videos are a bit lengthy.

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.

Lynda is only a half-assesed online course whereas Pluralsight has a robust catalog of courses.

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.

  • I am currently paying $29 per month as membership fees for using Pluralsight, but the knowledge I am getting in return is far more valuable and useful for me.
