We started using Digital Chalk for the training of our 2000 national leader volunteers in our Volunteer Relations department. We were delivering a leadership development program with over 30 online courses. The interface was so easy to use for both our administrators and learners, plus the level of personalized customer service was so good, it led to us using it for both staff and the rest of our 9000 volunteers for all our online training needs. It has also been adopted by other departments within the organization as their Learning Management System to sell training and deliver training.
  • Digital Chalk has a great video integration feature, which allows you to add pauses and questions to your video training to check user comprehension.
  • Our learners are typically older and not very tech-savvy. The user interface of Digital chalk is very clean, simple, and functional. It was very easy for our learners to find their way around and take the training they needed.
  • The administration of Digital Chalk is very easy. The function I think may be missing is an easy way to add revisions and assign them to the students who need them. For example, when you update a piece of a course it would have an indication that it is version xxx and would ask who would like to assign it to - everyone who has taken it before or just new students.
  • It would nice to have the system recognize when a student has already completed an element of a course that may be used in another course. For example, if video A is part of courses 1 and 2, and the student already watched it in course 1, it would ask the administrator if they should get automated credit for it in course 2, as well.
Digital Chalk is perfect for organizations who are looking for an easy to use Learning Management System and don't need all the bells, whistles, and bulk of the LMS giants, like Cornerstone or SuccessFactors. Digital Chalk doesn't require an administrative specialist to learn a whole new language and environment with endless options and settings. It's very easy to use for both learners and administrators, and yet at the same time provides the exact functions you need.

  • Digital Chalk allowed us to move the vast majority of our leadership development training online. This allowed our field managers to spend more time on coaching and mentoring than delivering training. Previously, our field managers were having to spend 48-72 hours training, plus travel expenses.
  • Many of our learners had prior negative experiences using online training. After switching to Digital Chalk our learning engagement increased over 100%. The vast majority of feedback receive is positive in regards to the software.

I've worked with Cornerstone, Saba, SuccessFactors, and Blackboard. As an administrator, those systems are a beast to learn and require someone to spend a large portion of their time supporting them. Once you are their customer, their customer support is almost nonexistent. There are so many functions and settings that it's just overwhelming.

By contrast, we had Digital Chalk up and running in a week with minimal issues. The administrative side is so much easier and doesn't require hours of involvement. The customer support is the best support I've ever had with any software, even outside of LMSs.

As I mentioned previously, Digital Chalk's customer support is excellent. I also got a reply back within an hour, and it was usually the same person. So, they were familiar with our needs and how we were using the system. Honestly, most of the time we had to contact their support, it was an issue on the user's side, not in the software. Yet, they still helped identify the issue and consulted on how to fix it.

At the time I used DigitalChalk, the idea was to use it for course management in the instance of a locked course where course participants would be able to learn the information in a highly structured way, respond to questions to confirm their engagement and understanding, then receive a certificate at the end of the course. This type of approach allowed the organization to maximize its reach as well as the number of participants in the course at a low-cost, hands-off management approach.
  • While I used the platform, it improved its integrations with PowerPoint, making it easy to convert slides to the DigitalChalk format.
  • The editing layers for audio underneath the slides is very user-friendly and easy to use.
  • While we didn't use the quiz randomization, I liked how there was a structure built to it so that those who had more robust usage situations than ours would be able to improve engagement and assess learning at a higher level.
  • DigitalChalk really fit our usage scenario well - structured, hands-off course delivery and management. For anyone doing something else outside of this realm, DigitalChalk might not be the best platform.
  • DigitalChalk uses its own software to manage its customer support content, and that has both good points and bad points. Not in its favor - because of the limitations, the overall online support experience was not great. I got more out of working with a specific support agent than I did with the website.
As I've stated, the best scenario for an organization to use DigitalChalk is in a highly structured course delivery format where information does not change often, where the course doesn't need any hands-on facilitating, and the outcomes can be automatically assessed. For certificate courses, DigitalChalk has everything the organization needs to implement their courses and certificate delivery.
  • DigtialChalk's ROI is positive - the cost model of low up-front costs to get started, then paying a small amount per course participant means that organizations implementing DigitalChalk as their platform get more than their money's worth from it. It returns profit quickly and on a consistent basis.
  • The asynchronous nature of the platform, combined with the targeted usage situation of hands-off course delivery and management, means that resources to create, deliver, and maintain courses can be held with either one person (like an instructional designer) or even an outside contractor. This means that there's little impact to the fixed operating costs involved with hiring someone else to manage it.
  • Canvas
DigitalChalk gave the organization the hands-on ownership of content creation and delivery while meeting our usage case of hands-off course management on a daily basis and extending the reach of the course content and certificate to as many people as possible. It's easy to use, very cost-effective to implement, and the overall experience means that the course participants get what they need out of the course without a lot of effort on their part.
