LearnUpon

LearnUpon is well-suited to an organization that would like to implement training for its employees and/or customer base. It is powerful, yet simple and intuitive while being packed full of features. They have flexible pricing plans too, you can pay per active user or by a set number of accounts.

SmarterU works and is much more cost-effective than other LMS systems out there. Support was great in the beginning when creating initial training.

Pros

LearnUpon

  • Customer service - Learnupon helped me to learn online learning management and become proficient in the administration of online training. They have helped me understand many facets of e-learning and helped me on a variety of issues unrelated to their own system. I know I can rely on them.
  • Automation -- Learnupon has many features which reduce my level of effort as an administrator (e.g., automated emails, automated certificates).
  • Integration with Authored Content -- Learnupon works seamlessly with my authored content and makes the integration of Tin Can easy. When I had problems (mostly due to my design error), they helped me figure out what was wrong and walked me through methods to improve the overall design of my authored content.
  • Price -- LearnUpon's scalable and efficient pricing has allowed me to be agile in my use of resources and has provided a lot of value for my investment.

Cons

LearnUpon

  • They don't offer a "pre-requisites" feature but they are very responsive about feature requests. We signed up late last year and already 2 of my feature requests have been implemented.
  • The discussion forum feature (brand new!) is not super intuitive, yet, but I expect the support team to improve it quickly as they do everything else.
  • The notifications feature could be improved a bit, but it still functions as necessary!

  • Software could be gamified better.
  • Should provide more opportunities for interactive learning.
  • Sometimes glitchy and logs users out in the middle of a training module.

Really good support initially, now support is OK but we have fewer needs.

Alternatives Considered

LearnUpon

As a relatively new user of learning management systems, my exposure to other LMS has been limited to online classes I taught at the college level and Moodle. LearnUpon offers great automation, customer service, and integration with other e-learning tools (Articulate, Vimeo, etc.). LearnUpon also gave me enough time to test out their platform and ensure that it could meet my needs.

Return on Investment

LearnUpon

  • We have not implemented it yet due to unforeseen issues with a different vendor, but we have launched two pilots and it has been very well received.
  • The expected outcome is a lot more revenue because the catalog we have in our current LMS (Absorb) is very poorly designed and ineffective.
  • Another expected outcome is that people will be excited to learn more and be better ambassadors for our company.

SmarterU.com

  • It has helped us to make sure our training is consistent across multiple locations and trainers and ensured less drift.
  • The course tracking and certification allows us to manage new hires and make sure they complete all required training to later achieve an RBT certification.
