Absorb LMS

Absorb is very well suited for any company looking to standardize training for all employees. It is also best suited when paired with a course vendor to pick specific courses aimed towards employees and their interests. This makes orientation very simple. We used to have a 2-hour orientation conference to cover everything these courses can cover.

iSpring Learn

Pros
  • New starter training
  • Bulk Training--allows you to assign one course to everyone with a click of a button, saving you the effort of delivering the course to all members of the team in a more physical setting.
  • Reporting on who has done what/going the extra mile
Cons
  • Not everything can be restricted to certain users, which is the only downside I find.

Pros

Absorb LMS

  • Clean interface for learners
  • Logical organization of courses
  • Admin portal is OK
Ron Massicotte | TrustRadius Reviewer

iSpring Learn

  • Clean display. Many of our users are new to online learning, so it was imperative that the display and interface were easy for users.
  • Cost effective. Compared to many of the other online learning systems this program is affordable.
  • Easy to create a course. On the administrative side, it is easy to create content and put together the course.

Cons

Absorb LMS

  • Automated creation of manager groups.
  • Easier way of seeing who employees report to so we can create manager groups.
Drew Randles CSSR, CSMR, CIR | TrustRadius Reviewer

iSpring Learn

  • Although an evaluation form can be created for users to complete providing feedback of the system, I would like to have a default template to use for this purpose.
  • The default certificate needs to be updated for a more professional look. One can create an evaluation but it’s not worth the hassle.
  • Can’t think of anything else.

In the past I could not encourage my students to take online training. The results and the questions were hard to be given. When I used the iSpring Suite along with iSpring Learn, my dreams came through and most of the time my students are online and take good training with my programme.

I have no problem using it and it is the same for my students. Anytime I ask them which part is not easy to use, they keep silent and say thank you.

They just do not work on the weekends. If I need anything, they reply less in than 24 hours, except holidays. I like that. They give me good chat support a lot. If I forget that I sent them an email, they do not forget and reply to me very soon. It is really appreciated.

We can say that most of my students attend my classes twice a week and that's not enough for someone to learn. I put some training for them to do at home and they really enjoy doing them. The kind of progress they make is really satisfying for them and they are always learning.

As a teacher, I used to spend a lot of time correcting my students' papers. Now with iSpring Learn, my time has been saved and everything is done automatically. All the time I can check my students' progress and I know which exams they have taken or they should take. On the whole, online training has really helped a lot of teachers

When I talked to my colleagues or informed them to search for a programme before iSpring Learn, they were not successful in designing and implementing a programme like this. I am sure they have done a lot to implement it in the best and educational way. That was not that easy as we thought.

Alternatives Considered

Absorb 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.
Ron Massicotte | TrustRadius Reviewer

iSpring Learn

When it comes to creating materials for learners, Moodle is a real drag to work with, and ProProfs is not much better. ProProfs' LMS is pretty good, but they don't have a good way to create good-looking materials offline. iSpring's Quizmaker seems to have great promise.

Return on Investment

Absorb LMS

  • This has been a positive ROI as we can track all course completions for audits as well as cutting costs for travel and training.
Drew Randles CSSR, CSMR, CIR | TrustRadius Reviewer

iSpring Learn

  • It has helped us by automating the state-mandated trainings that we need to do. We used to do them by paper and had to manually check them off in our system. With iSpring Learn, we are able to automatically track our training outcomes.
  • We have also been able to implement more supplemental trainings for our staff as we can put additional classes online and they can take the class(es) they want (or we require them) to take. It has not been long, but we have seen a slow increase in the number of staff taking the additional trainings which gives us a better trained workforce.
