AITalent LMS

As stated in their own brochure, it is "best suited to highly regulated markets such as Pharmaceuticals, Food Manufacturing, Energy and Utilities and Government and Not-For-Profit." I believe that this software could be used in several other markets and be just as productive. It is well-suited for companies that want to take existing templates and customize them to meet their own needs.

Pros

  • It was very easy to set up.
  • It was a very good value considering the cost.
  • The ability to share information, files, etc. with co-workers is a huge plus.

  • As a proficient user of competitive learning management systems, there was a slight learning curve when moving into Desire2Learn; however, after a few weeks I found this integrated learning platform to be user friendly to both me as the online course facilitator and my students. There are numerous online resources that assist in the learning curve.
  • Modules within Desire2Learn create an organized online course room that enhance delivery of course materials.
  • Revisions are "hassle free" and reorganizing course resources encourage frequent updates that enhance the online course and keep the material current.
  • Students interact easily with online instructor and peers.

Cons

  • It could use better, more thorough documentation.
  • The customer service aspect could also use some additional work.
  • I would like to see more gamification from AITalent.

  • Many times it seems that I have to flip back and forth between screens within the Desire2Learn course room to access information.
  • Grade book functionality is a bit cumbersome.

In my position as online course facilitator the decision is not mine to renew use of Desire2Learn; however, if asked I would vote to continue with this integrated learning platform. Course delivery is organized and efficient. Resources promote ease in instructional design.

After a short learning curve, the functions in Desire2Learn made sense. Usability is consistent throughout this integrated learning platform. After the first week of class students appear confident with the resources; consistency achieves this goal. For some, who are familiar with the competition, Desire2Learn may be a bit cumbersome; however, a little patience goes a long way when working with instructional design, course delivery, and students.

Both students and instructor enjoy the 24-hoiur access. After, all isn't that the point of online learning. As an instructor located in an Eastern time zone state it is great to connect with students located in a Pacific time zone state. I have gotten comments about the early hours I am in the course room grading assignments . . . 4:00 a.m. PST; 7:00 a.m. EST So, it's sleep time for my students and "first cup of coffee" time for me.

Easy to navigate; little to no delay from one section of the course room to another; actually fun to use after overcoming the learning curve.

This rating was given to the support team at the college for providing training and immediate response to questions related to Desire2Learn. This high caliber support is provided to both faculty and students. Also available are training videos and e-mail reminders when there are updates within the integrated learning platform.

Online training from the college was excellent. Peers worked in a D2L course room as students. It's always fabulous to be on the "other side" of the classroom and view the online course room from another perspective.

The D2L implementation team listened to our concerns and built a system based upon our needs. We wanted to keep them after the initial implementation.

Alternatives Considered

We chose AITalent LMS over Absorb's product due to cost constraints. The same could be said of Litmos and Saba. Whereas they might be larger and more established, AITalent LMS did what we needed for a price which we could afford. We would have preferred to have the support that the others offered.

Desire2Learn is a strong competitor of Blackboard, Moodle, and Angel learning management systems. As an online course facilitator, I have used other online learning management systems and find that Desire2Learn is user friendly and provides options equal to the competition.

During my first semester working with Desire2Learn the integrated learning management system was more down than up. This meant reconfiguring assignment due dates, frustration for both the instructor, students, and help desk staff. After an upgrade, Desire2Learn has been reliable.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed us to quickly and easily develop an entire curriculum for our employees.
  • To fully take advantage of the value of this tool, we had to dedicate several specialists to dig into the features to learn how to best use them.
  • The ease of which we can edit existing units allows us to use that time in other aspects of our work.

  • As an online course facilitator, Desire2Learn has provided another learning management system option to connect with students and encourage a passion for knowledge.
