Product Details

What is Lessonly?

Lessonly, now from Seismic (acquired August 2021) is training software with an ecosystem of partners, strategy and services that are aligned under the mantra of Do Better Work.

The vendor has worked with over 800 companies to help them train their teams. The vendor says they've learned that the highest performing organizations build their training on the same six pillars:

  • Assess (Gather Needs & Inputs) Listen to people, data, and the market; identify successes and challenges; and accurately assess your sales team's training needs.
  • Plan (Prioritize for Impact) Identify the most essential objectives and outcomes, and intentionally set milestones for creation and delivery.
  • Build (Create Quickly & Collaboratively) Work with teammates at the front lines of the business to develop and iterate on bite-sized training/content.
  • Learn (Meet Learners Where They Are) Push training content to teammates-- anywhere, anytime-- so they can quickly solve problems in their moment of need.
  • Practice (Rehearse, Refine, Repeat) Reinforce skills and information with realistic practice scenarios and receive feedback to fuel improvement.
  • Perform (Doing Better Work) Empower the organization to continuously improve, deliver and quantify results.

The results? Faster onboarding, higher NPS score, more closed deals and a superior customer experience.

  • Training tracking
  • Building integrated lessons that don't feel like "training"
  • Able to build your own certificates (great for training and internal rewarding)
  • Can watch in real time - progress monitoring
  • Sometimes reviewing lessons is a pain, according to some of our employees
  • Search is not robust enough just yet
  • Want to provide feedback during the loop for future training - have to do it in a different file which breaks the flow
  • Couple of minor bugs - probably fixed by now

  • Very user-friendly interface
  • Ability to add all different types of elements to the lessons
  • Lesson visibility can sometimes be a challenge (must assign to learners).
  • The flow of clicking on a lesson from the content page sometimes seems not intuitive. It takes you to a lesson summary page rather than the lesson itself.

  • Helped us put all of our policies and procedures online and available for our Reps so they could have access at their fingertips.
  • The many lessons that are available for our reps is unbelievable. They are always learning and taking lessons on their own in areas that they believe they need work in.
  • The support team that we have at Lessonly is amazing. The calls that we have with them are always productive. They are always looking for ways to make our lives easier so we can do better work.
  • It would be nice to be able to import a document and be able to search for that document or a word in the document. Currently you have to copy and paste in order to have the search functionality.

  • Choice of lessons
  • Ease of use, not difficult to manage.
  • Credentials of the trainer.
  • Going back on a quiz is hard to navigate if it advances.
  • A lot of the lessons are formatted the same, not enough diversity to keep interest.
  • Being able to have an online note pad that you could cut and paste video or a way to tag the portion that you want to review again.

  • It's very easy to use and intuitive.
  • Content-building tools work really well.
  • The visuals are pleasing.
  • The lesson completion dashboard is very detailed.
  • Grading quizzes and essays is easy.
  • Perhaps more choice in fonts.
  • An easier way to communicate between the creator/manager of content and the learner within the tool.

  • Lessonly keeps our content organized and consistent. We have a LOT of information for our agents to learn and know, so the consistency is a key factor.
  • Keeping team members in the appropriate groups is incredibly easy, with the Smart Groups. Changing one thing in someone's profile easily pops them into the correct Smart Groups, saving time for me and other Admins.
  • Creating engaging content is incredibly easy with Lessonly. Previously our content would be a Google doc with a linked quiz from SurveyMonkey and it would be informative, but not engaging at all.
  • There are some functionality features with Roles that I would love to see changed - the permissions being more flexible, essentially.
  • I'd like to see additional Insights, including who the least active users are.

  • Versatility. We can use for it darn near anything in any department across the company.
  • Easy editing. You can change/update something on the fly no problem.
  • Simple design easy for self- learning as a creator or admin.
  • The Lessonly university is basically a tool store to use at your disposal. It has a lot of great information.
  • Bugs. When there are some and we alert Lessonly, they reply with the problem will be fixed, but then no follow up on if or when?
  • Self branding ability would be great but as of now you have to reach out to a 3rd party which makes it difficult to keep communication clear.
  • Minor issues with the lessons themselves; such as the image and text being swapped in places once going from edit more to preview mode.

  • Extremely easy to learn - so we can allow HR to build their own trainings, engineering to build theirs, etc. with very little training.
  • Extremely easy to edit - so we can make changes on the fly.
  • API should include more comprehensive data.
  • I'd like more sophisticated tracking of the learning program (they are working on this now).

  • Search function on the Learn page is very helpful.
  • It's very easy to use the platform.
  • The content page is very hard to organize; just using tags is not enough when there is a lot of content.
  • Sometimes we want to have discussion ability under a lesson, which for now is not available.
