SumTotal Learn

It works well for just uploading SCORM compliant courses. We don't use it for managing ILT courses as it was complicated when we last tried it. We also do not sell courses, but I don't think that it's capable of doing that

Cons

SumTotal Learn

  • JasperSoft Reporting - it is difficult to use and manage.
  • Exams could be more robust. Offering alternate types of questions.
  • Too many clicks on the administrator side. Adding new activities is not intuitive, you need to click through each section to determine what needs to be entered where. Would be better if it was guided for new activities, just prompting for 'required' fields.

We have made an investment in SumTotal and changing our LMS at this point would be costly.

I do not find SumTotal to be intuitive. I feel we need to adjust our needs to meet the functionality available in the tool.

Alternatives Considered

SumTotal Learn

SuccessFactors is more user friendly, however their service is less than stellar. SumTotal was chosen because of price and customer service.

SumTotal Learn

  • Clean front-end user interface for easier course catalog management.
  • Reporting has been more difficult than previous LMS.
  • Audience building has more variables making it more difficult to manage.
