During Covid-19, classes should continue and this is where I know and use Edtch. We are almost 200 in a class as we are mixed of 2 classes, the prof ed, and the regular class. Our instructor has been looking for a system in which she can manage and can accommodate 200 students in a class, and this is where she discovers Edtch. If you had a hard time managing a class of 200 students then Edtch will help you manage a class easier

Cons
Absorb Software Inc.
  • Reporting could be better- ability to automate report to update on dashboard, ability to ask "give me top 3 courses" rather than have to define each course
  • Ability for managers to view indirect reports and assign them courses- it looks as if the functionality is there but it's not.
  • Initial training- it's really more of overview; lead users to Absorb Academy- much more useful.

  • I hope we use this in phones and androids as most students can't buy laptops and don't have computers at home.
  • No free trial
  • I had no other recommendations to provide as this management system is really great!

We have no plans to move away from Absorb at this time. It has all of the functionality we are looking for in a learning management system and we have a lot of info stored in our LMS system for trainings including all of our current and past employee transcripts. It is also getting easier to manager with being able to connect the LMS to ADP to update employee reporting/department/location/etc. We don't have a need or reason to move away from Absorb at this time.

Because our two CSMs that we have had (Olivia and Olga) are absolutely fantastic on answering all of our questions in a timely and professional manner. I also appreciate them taking the time to meet with me monthly to check in on new features Absorb is coming out with and any support needs we have. It is seriously the best part about working with Absorb.

Our organization previously used LMS365, which did not support eCommerce and had difficulties supporting external users. (My understanding is the issues with external users may have been directly related to our Microsoft implementation and not directly LMS365's fault, but it was nonetheless a deal breaker for us.) Docebo was the runner up in our LMS selection process and I spent significant time chatting with the team at Docebo. It seemed like a strong competitor to Aborb. Ultimately, Absorb was both slightly more cost-efficient for our scenario.

Edtch had the things I needed all in one. There are some of them that I tried, they may somehow have the same feature but the experience I've been through is incomparable. Edtch is user-friendly and it has all I want, I can do video collaboration with the team/classmates, and we can send images plus storage. All the things you needed to learn and teach are here at Edtch.

Return on Investment
Absorb Software Inc.
  • We use the LMS as first-level client training; it gets clients' feet wet before they take a live training course. Clients appreciate that we can give them admin access so that they can be in control of their users' learning paths.
  • We have used the LMS for our recent internal product certification and have been able to track completions and scores of employees to get a better feel for internal product knowledge and award prizes, making it fun for the participants.
  • Since we have created the certification program, each new hire is enrolled in the program. This has been great for onboarding new hires.
