BizLibrary

If you're looking for a video-based learning content provider, BizLibrary is one of the best in the business (we vetted over a dozen other vendors before moving forward with them). On the other hand, if you are not staffed to handle the manual nature of course population into your existing LMS BizLibrary may not be the right solution for you.

Coursera

It's absolutely ideal for programming. Today, most programming environments are available for free and enthusiasts can tinker with programming on their own. But Coursera structures that process and presents iteratively more complex assignments to the student.I found it useful for non-programming. I took a refresher Calculus course and the user was able to enter solutions symbolically which I found impressive.

Pros

BizLibrary

  • Client success managers, in addition to helping with course selection, give advice on building your learning program.
  • The BizLibrary tech team was instrumental in working with my LMS provider to tackle some technical challenges.
  • The biggest strength BizLibrary has, in addition to its huge content library, is a team truly dedicated to your success.

Coursera

  • Interaction: the student learns by doing. For programming courses, this means programming!
  • Assessments: the courses I'd taken ask students to grade each others work with a rubric. This is hugely effective and permits tests and quizzes to be other than multiple choice.
  • Creativity and enthusiasm of the instructors. Some of the approaches demonstrated real out-of-the-box thinking by the instructors. For example, the Rice Python course was a self-contained website requiring no installation of IDE on one's computer, and the final project was a working version of Asteroids.
  • Low cost of entry: most of the course I enrolled in were free, with an optional fee for certifications. This really gives people the freedom to explore learning. It's almost like a Public Library of Learning.
  • Coursera forces a weekly discipline on the user with lectures and assignments and this really motivates one to put in the effort.

Cons

BizLibrary

  • As a third party consumer of the BizLibrary content (meaning, we use courses from their content library in our LMS, versus their LMS) I'd love to see streamlined processes for clients like us in getting the courses into our LMS.

Coursera

  • More collaboration on creation of courses
  • Should have free courses for not niche topics
  • Mobile interface has room for improvement

Alternatives Considered

BizLibrary

We found BizLibrary and really haven't felt a need to look any further. The only issue and it isn't a huge one is a lack of industry-specific courses. They are improving on this. I have never found another product that provides the variety and volume of learning tools that BizLibrary provides.

Coursera

There is a Mentor Course, for those chosen that have been good at some courses. You can find almost everything (talking about courses), of lots of topics and categories. It's simply amazing. You can learn a lot, even if you don't pay for the certificate.
