CD2 Learning
CD2 Learning is a great fit for any organization wanting to help develop online training resources as well as online assessment and data analytics. CD2 Learning would not be a great fit for an organization wanting to do a lot of custom development to create a platform from scratch.

NovoEd
NovoEd is well suited for synchronous and asynchronous training. Best suited if you want to leverage social components, discussions, assignments and peer-to-peer learning. We run global cohorts to take advantage of the diversity and create community. That works great. I think that when you need to leverage other design options, in an example, add features to display content in other ways, other types of design even in page layout, then you have limited options (but I haven't found any other better than Novoed in this space). Reports are useful, but more options would be appreciated

Pros
CD2 Learning
  • The ability to restrict and customise the security preferences to ensure the system remains standardised.
  • The phone customer support is good because you can get through to someone when it is really urgent.
  • A lot of the interface is customisable as well, so you can change the look and feel yourself.

NovoEd
  • Easy to upload content and videos and easy to edit and modify. Allows to program when a module or section can be launched and to schedule specific communication messages to audience. Assignments can be approved to review the quality of deliverables.
  • The peer-to-peer learning features in NovoEd are great. Discussions allow to connect with the author of the discussion and also with peers. Peers can see other peer’s comments and submissions and comment and learn from those.
  • User friendly, easy to navigate and structure easy to understand
  • Leaderboard so participants can see how they are doing compared to others

Cons
CD2 Learning
  • There are times we wish CD2 Learning had additional resources to help address any issues that pop up within our platform in a more timely manner.
  • CD2 Learning does not do a lot of custom development for each client. There are times we wish we could more easily alter aspects of the CD2 Learning platform to better fit our needs.
  • CD2 Learning works in "sprints". Therefore, if an issue does not get included in the sprint, it can take some time before it is addressed.

NovoEd
  • The options to design a page are limited: page width, navigation, margins, headers, etc. Design feels limited
  • Does not allow for a lot of customization. All pages flow in the same way so after a few courses, feels repetitive
  • I am not a technical expert, so I do not know how to embed html content to create other options to display content, in an example: sections that open when you click, etc.
  • To have different languages, you have to clone the course and translate and create a separate course.

Terrible to use for administrators. Hard to find the function you are looking for and over complicated

Alternatives Considered
CD2 Learning
Before going with CD2 Learning, we looked at using Cornerstone for our services. We found Cornerstone was considerably more expensive than CD2 Learning. Additionally, we were always very impressed with the people at CD2 Learning, which continues to be a great strength for them. Their people are wonderfully caring, supportive, and collaborative.

NovoEd
Much more user-friendly, easy to use. The LMS (Saba and cornerstone) are not user-friendly, tons of more clicks are needed to arrive at a course. We decided on Novoed because of the user experience for end users. LMS very focused on compliance and tracking and not in user experience. Fuse was much more social than our strategy, there every user can upload content. We wanted still to have the discipline of having instructional design, goals, etc, so Fuse was not an option.
