While video interviewing is still considered too "unconventional" by too many small business HR people I visit with, the ROI can easily be found within 4-6 months (if the company is having to fly more than 3 or 4 candidates in for interviews)... so I would argue that Montage is well-suited for organizations of all sizes. For best success, though, I would make sure that any HR leader seeking to implement spend the time to educate your leadership team on how the technology works and why it is a worthwhile investment (especially underscoring the risk mitigation provided against alot of frivolous EEOC claims, as the interviews are recorded and the records are yours to keep... meaning you have Exhibit A to share should you ever receive a Charge Notice, which demonstrates exactly what was asked by the employer and how the candidate responded).

Revel

Pearson Revel is probably best suited for distance learning of large sections where there is little time for discussion and grading assignments manually is prohibitive. I would prefer not to use it with small classes and traditional classes.

Cons

Modern Hire

  • While we are a fan of the concierge service, there have been a time or two where we have scheduled for it but the Montage partner didn't log-in/dial-in in a timely manner and we were left trying to address technical issues outside our comfort zone.
  • The Montage platform is solid, without question. That said, there are pieces of the interface for both the prospective candidate and the hiring manager which could be made far-more intuitive than they exist today. We all know that in hard-to-fill roles across the nation today, there are more opportunities than there are great candidates with which to fill them... so we need to do all we possibly can to make the candidate experience as simple, quick and painless as possible.
  • It would be great if the Montage platform could easily interface with our ATS.

Revel

  • Unfortunately, there are some videos that do not play, or situations where the video does not match the question content. These are bugs that should be attended to by Pearson, but although I have reported them (along with students), they have not been remedied.
  • Instructors who would prefer to use only the digital text do not have the option to purchase the text without the platform.
  • Because the text and software are integrated, there are no "page numbers" as in other digital texts which makes it hard to reference a particular section in a lecture, assignment, or presentation.

Pearson Revel does a great job of elevating a traditional reading experience for students. It allows them a comfortable space to practice and learns from their mistakes. Detailed reporting is available for both student and instructor. There are also lots of customization options for the instructor and assignment deployment.

Alternatives Considered

Modern Hire

Technology is similar, though Montage is a bit more user-friendly. Also found the recordkeeping and release of same to be more attractive with Montage. Both are competitively priced.

Revel

I have used Pearson MyPsycLab in the past. I believe it was a better overall product than the REVEL system because the text and learning activities were separated, Students could view the text, then complete the activities. Overall, I think that both printed texts and systems like REVEL will be obsolete in the near future as content is readily available on the internet at no cost to the student.
