We are using TalentLMS for our online university where we offer a whole range of technical and official certifications and free training to educate the Spanish speaking communities on Capture, Content Management, and Business Process Automation. We needed a platform that would allow us to offer our trainings online and that could also be used in other languages such as Spanish.
  • Usability - TalentLMS interface is intuitive and easy to use
  • Friendliness - The platform is easy to navigate and it doesn’t require much training in order to get started
  • Customization – making any changes to the interface and add items to the portal is not that easy
  • Templates – the templates for the certifications and portal are limited
TalentLMS is well suited for organizations looking to extend their training capabilities internally and externally as the platform is fully web-based. From the administration point of view, it allows you to segment different areas of your organization.

TalentLMS is used across our entire organization. We use the program to administer and track compliance training, job specific training, and employee development training. We use online courses as well as webinar and instructor-led courses.
  • The user interface for our employees is simple and clean. Even our least computer-savvy can complete their course requirements.
  • The interface for our human resource managers and supervisors allows them to track and monitor employee performance.
  • We have courses that are required for each employee based on their job title, and then, many courses we consider to be elective for that job title. We have not found a method to distinguish between those in order to view an employee's performance on required courses only.
  • Reports are only available by user ID or user name. We have some facilities or managers who need the user ID (based on payroll entry) and some that need names (employees they interact with each day).
TalentLMS is very well suited for employee training whether it is a small company or a large company. Courses can be created based on any type of media. This allows us to create courses specific to our industry and even our product.

TalentLMS is being used to offer required HIPAA Security Awareness & Privacy Training classes to the workforce of our clients. As a small business, I am the primary administrator in developing and implementing the various courses we offer. The training classes address a regulatory requirement to provide this training. By offering clients an easy self-enroll process, it eliminates the need to manually enter those needing to take the training.
  • The ability to "clone" courses to make easy to customize the title for each client.
  • Outstanding Support team. Issues or problems are responded to in a quick manner.
  • The cost!! Compared to other LMS companies, TalentLMS is much more expensive based on the number of users.
  • In the administrator role, you cannot see the full name of the training program, especially those with very similar titles.
As a compliance company, TalentLMS is well suited to roll out and track training for thousands of client workforce members. As mentioned, the ability to self enroll by creating a separate URL clearly helps to cut down on the burden of having to manually enroll anyone needing the training.
From a healthcare industry perspective, the training course we develop in TalentLMS is very appropriate in helping our clients meet this regulatory requirement.

I used TalentLMS to build an online version of a professional development course I created for teachers. I was then able to sell the course online as a self-directed study.
  • supports various content types (text, images, media, etc).
  • has robust support for membership levels
  • Course management felt overly complex. Moving units around was difficult.
  • User management, particularly the funnel process of moving site visitors through the purchase process was difficult to use.
With my limited experience, I would say that it was well suited for the specific use case I was in: a solo course author creating online courses to sell to individuals. Where it broke down for me was in the sales process. I wanted more options for alerts, triggers for communication with customers as they moved through the process, etc.

We use TalentLMS for our customer training program. As a paid product offering, it's critical that we deliver our training through a high-quality portal with lots of features and high service levels. We've deeply integrated TalentLMS into our other customer systems using the API and other customizations available through custom CSS and JavaScript. If you're looking for a highly customizable platform, TalentLMS is a great option.
  • Cost effective
  • Easy to deploy/configure/manage
  • Would appreciate more functionality in the area of User Certificates (e.g., ability to validate a certificate publicly, ability to lookup a user by a Cert ID, ability to extend or reissue certificates based on different requirements the second time around).
  • Some cross-object reporting is limited, which makes more complex report types more difficult. Most common report types are easy to pull and export.
TalentLMS is a cost-effective, scalable platform for an eCommerce customer training platform. Their support is always friendly, and the product is feature-rich. The plans are also very flexible (you can go up or down mid-term and the difference is simply applied to your ongoing balance). Again, it's also highly customizable.

We use TalentLMS as the learning management system for our clients. It allows us to provide white-labelled classes to corporate clients, as well as individual purchasers.
  • The API is robust.
  • The theme customization is very good--you can customize CSS and JavaScript.
  • In some cases, the UI can be a little clunky, especially for instructors it can be difficult to get to the student reports that are needed.
  • The API documentation could be more detailed.
TalentLMS is good for quick white-labelled solutions (like if you have many different clients and you want to give them custom subdomains and branding but administer everything centrally). It is also good because it doesn't require a large up-front cost.

I'm not sure where it would be less appropriate. Some competitors may have better support for SCORM/xAPI integration and more customizability generally. The platform can sometimes feel a bit restrictive in how the classes are laid out (compared to an Articulate course for example).

TalentLMS is what we use to store all of our in house training for both our employees and our customers. This system is what we intend to use to transfer all of our learning and development and knowledge center items as a single repository of information. It is being used by the entire company as a monetization tool for our external training.
  • Easy to use without an LMS admin.
  • Easy to set up courses and naming them along with creating learning paths.
  • Makes it easy to incorporate with third party systems for training.
  • Based on the features of talentLMS it seems that it better utilized for smaller companies, I say this based on the price point.
  • It seems to have some issues reading some scorom based courses.
The best thing about the system is that it is easy to incorporate and to use, it's easy to self teach yourself or use the online tutorials although they are not necessarily the best. The system in general feels to be elementary meaning it doesn't do anything particularly well and it doesn't do anything particularly bad, it is just "decent" at what it does which depending on your company size may be a good/bad thing, but like any system you need to review it based on your company needs.

TalentLMS was used across the whole organization for product training, compliance training, HR training, department-specific, and role-specific training. We used it to help shorten new hire onboarding, track and report on compliance for annual audits, and assist departments and individual employees with continuing education. By using a cloud-based system, we were able to train the entire organization at once, rather than relying on in-person or remote training presentations.
  • TalentLMS has a fantastic UX/UI - onboarding training took approximately 10 minutes!
  • TalentLMS eliminated the need for expensive software such as Articulate or Captivate by having the built-in option to build quizzes and tests from scratch.
  • Would love for TalentLMS to add the ability to create scenario-based courses.
TalentLMS is well-suited for employees who are working in different time zones and/or frequently traveling because courses can be accessed online or via mobile device. It's also well-suited for compliance training because of robust, on-demand reporting. Additionally, TalentLMS is well-suited for all types of learning materials: video, audio, PowerPoint presentations, MS Word documents, PDFs, and more.

TalentLMS is being used across our organization. We have developed training modules that all new hires are asked to complete on their own time at their own pace within TalentLMS upon being hired with our company. Completing the training at their own pace is a huge plus as well as saving on the costs involved with having the entire new hire group present for training in the classroom instead.
  • Organizes training into modules that can be assigned to certain users with certain groups.
  • Tracks the completion of the training modules for supervisor review.
  • Keeps a detailed record of training completed for future audit review.
  • We pay per user, not per active user.
  • It would be nice if there was a better way to export the training that was completed to file it somewhere and then delete the user from TalentLMS (to keep the per-user fee down).
  • If we could have the user complete the training and then deactivate them so that we don't pay for them as a user going forward, but we still have an archive of the training they completed, that would be ideal.
TalentLMS is ideal for some of the training that we ask our new hires to complete. It allows users to complete the training at their own pace and review material as needed. It saves on having to organize a classroom training session that everyone can attend to be led by a supervisor.
