It is used as the primary source for all classes and certificates provided through WellSky. It is used by the entire organization and addresses the often problematic process of training new hires. It is an effective tool when used specifically for these purposes. Attempts made to repurpose the product for disciplinary courses were futile.
  • Course library is highly intuitive
  • Completed courses are obviously graded
  • The video player is embedded properly.
  • Clarify the process for enrollment into courses
  • When the user clicks into a different portion of the file library and then needs to return to a previous class the software forces you to go all the way back to the beginning of the coursework, this isn’t that painful just annoying.
LMS 365 is well-suited to use for onboarding new employees and basic classes that are required on a yearly basis such as sexual-harassment courses and Hyppa certification courses. However, LMS 365 while the videos are in bedded properly I do not always playback well the quality is poor and the captions do not keep up with the video this could be due to Internet speed however in testing I was able to find that it was tied to the software, not the Internet speed as I was able to reproduce the issue on two different systems with different Internet speeds and providers.

We needed a platform to deliver training programs to employees using in-house developed classes that were highly customized to our needs. The classes would be updated annually and we needed to prove that employees were indeed taking the classes and passing. One aspect that we really appreciated about this platform is that two people were responsible for managing the configuration, developing the classes and providing support on this system. It integrated tightly with Sharepoint and worked wonderfully for the organization.
  • Easy to setup and manage.
  • Lots of configurable settings and behavior controls.
  • Nothing comes to mind as it covered everything we needed and much that we did not use.
We were able to significantly reduce the cost of in house training by leveraging our classes on this platform. It seamlessly integrated with SharePoint, making it extremely easy to manage.
The few times we actually needed support generally were during major upgrades of the system and getting a quick handle on how the configuration changed were the primary reasons.

This is used by my organization to reduce man power and paper work. So that is the reason I am very much interested in this product.
  • More security
  • User friendly
  • We can reduce man power and paper work
  • We can create quick courses
  • We can schedule the meetings with built in functionality
  • We can keep all documents in sharepoint ECMS
It's the most user friendly tool for sharepoint or other users.

SharePoint LMS (Learning Management System) is used normally as a tool for the training department to create, track and deliver training. HR or similar functions can use it for competency, skill and certification management and the course catalog module makes it easy to promote courses to users. If the company is smaller and does not have a dedicated training department, divisions or departments can utilize it in their own space. SharePoint LMS delivers online training, can be used to schedule and deliver class room based training and of course hybrid setups where SharePoint LMS is used as a substitution of the class room. SharePoint LMS is cost effective as it sits on top of SharePoint, means companies already invested in the Microsoft stack, especially SharePoint benefit greatly not only from and end-user point of view, but as well from an operational point of view. While using the LMS portion, SharePoint can be used to deliver all its strongpoint as well. SharePoint can be used as an Intranet Portal, an Extranet Portal, can handle your project needs, you company wide search desires, can solve business challenges buy projecting your process into databases and workflows, it even helps with the social aspect of your company, making people work better together.

What can be better than adding the capabilities of creating, delivering and tracking training to your company, employees, partners, students than utilizing a familiar platform, a familiar technology, a broadly used software?
  • From an operational point of view (if you have SP already):
  • Leverage your Investment
  • Familiar, already implemented core technology (e.g. Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft SQL)
  • Minimal software license investment
  • Existing Hardware / Software (can sit on top of your current SP environment, add servers when needed)
  • Utilize established processes (Disaster recovery, backup, indexing, authentication)
  • Minimal expansion of support staff
  • Save training and retooling cost
  • Familiar interface, tools and ability to leverage existing content
  • If you do not have SharePoint already:
  • A broad, feature reach core product which can be used almost everywhere in the company
  • Flexible Design
  • Supports multiple LMS setups, delivered out of one SP farm
  • Easy to setup, scale, maintain and support
  • Low support needs
  • Used by almost everybody in all industries
  • Some specific LMS features which stand out:
  • SharePoint LMS has a very rich and mature feature and function portfolio
  • Same if not more functions and features are available in SharePoint LMS,compared to industry leading pure LMS solution providers
  • Easy to extend. From end user changing look and feel, or creating apps to super user capabilities to reflect business processes to full fledged development possibilities
  • A powerful Quiz engine
  • SCORM, AICC compatibility
  • and so much more
  • Connectivity to other system is always a must ...
  • Active Directory Integration
  • Inside and outside Firewall access
  • Claims Based Authentication
  • SSRS for Advanced Reporting
  • Lync 2010 / 2013 integration for screen sharing, white boarding, presence
  • O365 integration
  • ADFS integration
  • CRM and SAP integration possible
  • There is more to do on the Competency and Skill management site of the product, to make the use even broader for a company.
  • As soon as TinCan is quasi accepted, SharePoint LMS will have to adopt it in their core product as an extension to SCROM, AICC, LRM and of course their native course content and delivery options
If a customer does not have SharePoint the entry in that kind of solution is a bit harder as the use of SharePoint can be so broad.
It does not mean it is not the right solution as a company can use SharePoint LMS to start with and then expand to other functions and features.

I strongly recommend to use SharePoint Standard or Enterprise and forgo the "free" SharePoint version as a) SharePoint's core functions and features are greatly enhanced in these two premium versions and b) more and more SharePoint LMS functions make use of these core Standard and Enterprise features in the future, like taxonomy, user profiles, etc.

In general with all project it is as well recommended to have the full buy in by upper management and that the project initiative is fully supported. Adding such a solution (SharePoint LMS or any other LMS solution) will require the team not only to have a good plan on how the requirements can be achieved from a technical point of view, but how a training program can be rolled out to an organization of 5, 500, 5.000 or 50.000. The technical deployment of SharePoint LMS is measurable (I would say between 1-4 weeks based on the complexity, scale of the environment). 1-2 weeks of training (depending on the base knowledge of SharePoint in the company and the need to add knowledge of SharePoint LMS). That's it. Technically you are ready. If needed, any custom work, integration and development work comes on top. Where customer struggle is the availability and dedication of their own teams. Course content needs to be created, how should a course look like, what are the parameters, what are top ten things needed moving a course which was taught in a class room, but now to be delivered online.

Buying the licenses is one thing, getting the solution up and running form a technical point of view is another, making it YOURS is the challenge!
