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.

It is especially suited for new or junior employees to gain familiarity or new features of business productivity applications. Every course is also learn-at-your-own-pace; this is key to the utility of the website.

Cons

BizLibrary

  • Implementation Manual -- not just online "Help" -- a manual for the System who does the actual implementation would be a great help
  • Should be able to see assigned curriculum in multiple areas for individual learners

  • When they were acquired by LinkedIn, the next invoice barely noted the invoice was for Lynda.com. I at first thought it was a phishing attempt using LinkedIn as a front.
  • The invoice should be from the lynda.com domain and NOT from LinkedIn.
  • Account administrators should be able to change passwords, and see passwords, for the license entities they manage. Also, all email notices to users should be duplicated to account administrators.

Lynda.com is very simple to use, from finding videos to watching to going back and finding the chapter you want to re-watch. Love it all!

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.

We have both lynda.com and Plural sight at my job. I like lynda.com when I am searching for a specific tool as it contains videos that hone in on teaching the attributes of a specific tool. Pluralsight's videos generally are longer and are more project based. But both sites are excellent resources. I can't really say which is better than the other.

Return on Investment

BizLibrary

  • Employee engagement feedback related to the need for learning & development has already seen an uptick. Many express alot of gratitude/appreciation for the JIT learning opportunity.
  • 1st year ROI achieved with first half-dozen employees who participated in courses which were otherwise budgeted to be taken as one-day, offsite sessions from other (classroom) vendors.
  • Broad-based management support was at first a struggle, to be candid, but as employees have completed courses and then we've followed up, managers are now providing positive feedback from their perspective.
