HealthStream
HealthStream is a wonderful tool for assigning assessments and evaluating knowledge. The assessments have a large pool of questions to pull from. The exams are timed and will generate a test report at the end of the exam so the clinical team can see what tests were passed and failed. These are helpful in ensuring we know what the nurse needs extra education on. HealthStream would be less suited for education items that would need to be validated in person...skills such as CPR.

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
HealthStream
  • Reporting. Having the ability to track compliance (and non-compliance) at our fingertips ensures that we are up-to-date with Federal, State, Local and internal policies, requirements and educational initiatives
  • Customization. Developing in-house materials, specific to our variable training needs is a huge plus - HealthStream's commitment to SCORM-ready content since 2011 has made it simple for us to connect, engage and interact with all of our staff and providers.
  • Integration. Allowing us to interface with our HRM/HRIS systems is invaluable. Keeping up with a dynamic workforce, both in terms of retention and attrition, would not be possible without our current interface structures.

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
HealthStream
  • Embedding elearning tutorials into HealthStream can be a bit complicated, and even slow down the site for the end user. In my experience, I found it much easier to just offer a link to the tutorial through the assessment portion.
  • Keeping users synced into the most up-to-date user groups can be a bit tricky. If you create your own student groups, and then these students transfer to a different job role or department, you will manually have to make these changes yourself. A more automated process would be great.

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.

We just can't imagine NOT having HealthStream as it has become such a part of our training system. The per user cost has actually gone down from 3 years ago. However, we are using more courses we have purchased. This allows us to be more efficient with our time and more convenient for the end users. We are considering purchasing other aspects of the system.

I only used HealthStream for a short time, but it wasn’t overly user-friendly or pretty. There were some quirks that I didn’t like, like the quiz builder or uploading lists. Whenever you assigned a group it was difficult to tell and confirm that the assignment went out. Overall I like other systems better.

The interface for HealthStream is 1000x better than My Learning. I still struggle to find my assignments and upcoming in person training on My Learning. It is not intuitive and doesn't have a dashboard when you sign on to see everything at once. HealthStream lets me easily see my assignments, their due dates, and any upcoming dates

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.
