Overall Satisfaction with Bridge

Bridge is used by all new employees via HR. There have been a few early adopters of Bridge, including OSP, that have been developing training for new and existing employees- mostly related to research admin, compliance and health and safety - at least for now.

We had some issues with innovation and collaboration with the existing training resources and Bridge allowed us to develop resources autonomously. The head of that program is now gone and Bridge is now getting embraced.
  • Democratizes learning.
  • Ease of use/enables experts to share.
  • Good at evolving quickly based on customer needs/requests.
  • The lack of audio function within Bridge is disappointing. When I started developing my courses 6+ months ago, I needed to upload SCORM to have audio but lost accessibility functionality. I was told (at a conference) that I could add an audio file so I'm not sure if that's new or if my Bridge contact just didn't know and led me down the Captivate path to compensate.
  • As an Author/Editor, I'm not weighing ROI. For me there's only upside and positive impacts.
Bridge was the obvious choice. I started exploring Canvas and discovered that the university was testing Bridge for possible acquisition. I became an early adopter and user. The single sign-on and integration with PeopleSoft data were huge.
I think this question assumes that we have Practice and Perform - which we don't.
I was involved only peripherally in the acquisition and implementation.
  • We're still in our first year of Bridge so the ways we're currently using it now are very much as expected. It will be after a year that the innovative ways will start to reveal themselves.
I think it's well suited for organizations that want to make training easier to use and broaden the voices of those producing training and learning opportunities. Ideally those experts would also be good writers/content developers and experienced in instructional design.
