Bridge

Compared to our previous LMS, Bridge is 100 times better! We're able to create our own courses within the system instead of being stuck with outdated 3rd party training. Being able to customize the courses to our company's language and culture helps it to be well received by all company-wide.

Pros

Bridge

  • Checkpoints is remarkably well. It compels manager/employee communication and verification of completed milestones in a collaborative manner.
  • The retain feature has really helped verify as well as provided a mechanism for retained knowledge for our learners. It has encouraged learners to actually try to engage with the all trainings.
  • The communication tools (emails, creating groups etc.) have been a great asset for our managers in the field. The manager can send an email directly to one or more of his team without using other tools.

Cons

Bridge

  • One thing I would be relieved to see is a feature that lets the manager account print a certificate of completion directly from the Insights page or from accessing one of their learner's pages. Right now the only way for the manager to access the certificate is to export data into a csv file and then copy and paste a web address into their browser and then print. This process is much easier for a learner, but in our environment the learner's are often accessing material on their smart phones and they would not print their own certificate. However, manager's will be audited and will need to show evidence that learning has been completed and they will need to print certificates even when the learners are not at work that day or at that time. It would be a huge help if printing certificates were easier from the manager account.
  • Bridge makes it easy to upload PowerPoint and scorm files, but it's internal capabilities for course building are minimal. Being able to build varied, text-based content within Bridge would be a great enhancement.
  • It would be helpful if manager accounts could review test results for each individual question by question. This way they can follow up with incorrectly answered questions to ensure material is understood. It is our policy that this follow up is done, but by moving assessment to Bridge it has made it difficult to do.
  • Assigning learning is generally quite simple and can even be done automatically when you add learners through smart groups linked to role, for example. However, it would be wonderful if you could add learning while on an individual leaner profile - similar to the way you can add a course to a program, so that while on the learner page you see they are missing a particular course or program you can hit a button that says add learning, search for the content and select it. Right now if you're on a learner page and see a course is missing you have to change to the Author then switch to course or program then find the course or program then switch to learners and then find your learner and then add them. It's too much navigating for something that should be simple.

It has been very useful to our organization in getting compliance training complete. We have a 24/7/365 organization with some folks only working 2 days a week during the summer only, many work full-time jobs elsewhere and can't make weekday programs and facilities don't have to alter schedules to get mass numbers of people through training like you have to do with live training..

Our challenges were internal - nothing with Bridge. We had regular, productive meetings with our implementation representative.

Alternatives Considered

Bridge

Bridge, Lessonly, and Litmos were all very closely related when it came to exploring LMS'. We ultimately went with Bridge because of the simplicity of the system as well as the price point against the others

Return on Investment

Bridge

  • For Health Care Accreditation we need to have some sort of training software in place. We really do not track ROI for this.
