  • Content creation and management - easy to build and share paths and lessons, no training required. Easy access to insights library
  • Exercise tracking - easy to assign tasks to people and monitor completion
  • Feedback - easy to collect lesson feedback to further improve content
  • It would be great to have a mobile app to learn on the go like Google Primer
  • More editing options for lessons
  • Content export / import into or from various file formats
For any organization that is heavily invested in their employee learning and would like to do it in a convenient way online Lesson.ly would be ideal. It is not always possible to have a dedicated company coach for specific matters, but it is very easy to distribute content and monitor people's progress via Lesson.ly. It is also a great tool to build and keep a knowledge library and collect employee feedback about learning paths and classes. What's also important, Lesson.ly has a very intuitive UI that anyone can understand from day one.

Lesson.ly is well designed for internal training purposes within a corporate environment - when your team is creating customized trainings. However, if you are looking for a learning management system with lots of content already on the tool (i.e., business trainings, etc), there are other tools with more robust content loaded.

Lesson.ly is a great tool for creating trainings and lessons for employees. It's easy to use, and easy to access. If you're wanting your employees to have all of their training documents in one place, and where they can be referenced, Lesson.ly is great. It can be expensive, depending on how much your organization is utilizing it, so do your due-diligence when looking into this product. Additionally, it is lacking a bit in customization. We've had new hires provide feedback stating it's a bit boring, and can feel a bit too much like they're back in school. With more customization, this issue could be rectified.

Lesson.ly is perfect for a new rep with limited knowledge of policies or workflows and you don't have the personnel to cover that content. Lesson.ly provides a scalable way to provide step by step instruction or content in a meaningful format that can empower the student to feel equipped for whatever circumstance or situation they are being educated for. However, Lesson.ly is not as effective to use as a resource center, a place that clients or employees can quickly access information or use for reference if they forget information.

It's used across the whole organization as part of new hire on-boarding.

The business problems it addresses include getting new teammates up to speed on company history, product knowledge, team structure, etc.
  • Makes learning interactive.
  • Gamifies the completion process.
  • Includes media e.g. photos.
  • A more exciting UI - more pop-up interactions.
  • Push notifications for task reminders.
  • Easier login / less friction.
Very appropriate and effective for new hire onboarding.

Not as effective if you are trying to study and memorize something.

Not the best user interface or experience - can seem dull at times.

Lesson.ly is being used by our company to onboard new employees at our company. Lesson.ly allows for me as a manager to have an interactive way to set up training lessons for our customer success team. The ability to have lessons that include text and embedded video is great! We typically link out to our internal resources instead of updating in lesson.ly, that way we only need to update the materials in one place. We had just purchased Lesson.ly when I started and we've only built out more cool resources since!
  • A central hub to train and equip new reps at our company. Lesson.ly lets us standardize our training and gives our team a way to share training information in a reproducible way.
  • I've appreciated the quiz and certification abilities of Lesson.ly. It's flexible enough that you can have super in-depth quizzes, light quizzes or a simple signing of your name that you completed the certification. The versatility is nice and allows for me to keep my team accountable.
  • While Lesson.ly is great for new employee onboarding, it's also great for getting out new knowledge updates out to the team and making sure they are continuing in product education. If there's a product or process update, Lesson.ly is great for rolling that new information to the team!
  • Lesson.ly is pretty barebones in the realm of UI/UX. It's very much on the user to customize everything. The product isn't super pretty and sometimes feels like an early 2000s interface. It works though, so who cares right? Naw, I guess I care. A sexy product always feels better when using it. That's why people keep buying Apple products. Make it sleek!
  • I wish organization of assignments was a little cleaner. It kind of feels messy as square blocks. Would be cool to have them in folders or something to minimize scrolling.
  • I've found that a some of my employees find Lesson.lys boring. While some of that is the nature of the material that we put in, I believe a more interactive interface would serve the attention of my employees.
Lesson.ly is great for a guided onboarding experience for new employees and for sending out and standardizing the sharing of new required knowledge that the team needs to know. Lesson.ly also helps us plan out our onboarding and gives us a way to create a timeline for onboarding representatives.

It isn't suited for kinesthetic learners as it's not entirely engaging in its interface and functionality. You should be able to assign the learner a task in lesson.ly to go do something that is hands-on though!
