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.

Skillsoft Academy

The presentations helped me develop a deeper understanding of a subject. The information is a nice combination of [being] well organized and applicable to real life information. The test questions are clearly worded and really make you think (but not crazy unrealistic scenarios). I feel very confident about my ability to perform my job.

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.

[I selected Skillsoft Academy because it's] much easier to use and has relevant courses. I would like to give 4.5 stars to the course selection, delivery, content, and exams
