Overall Satisfaction with GreenLight

GreenLight is used by Brooks Rehabilitation primarily for mandatory compliance throughout the entire organization. It is also used for course sign ups for in class training sessions as well as clinical courses for our employees needing to stay current on their state licenses.
  • Course compliance for health care providers. GreenLight provides a very user friendly, effective interface and tracking system for courses that are either mandatory for company compliance or licensure.
  • Tracking sign ups for in-class training. GreenLight provides an excellent format for users to sign up for in session trainings. A sign-in sheet can be printed, the course can be limited to certain user groups, assessments can be done to track attendance and courses can be entered after the fact.
  • Course building structure. GreenLight provides a very robust environment to create and customize courses however you'd like.
  • The words that are used in GreenLight are ridiculous. I know they've said they will update this but it has yet to be done. Words like 'intervention' and 'stem' leave me scratching my head.
  • The learning curve is HUGE. They have made strides in this area with an improved support site, but when you're first learning it, it feels like you're trying to climb Mt. Everest. This does speak to all the LMS offers, but I think some things take too many steps to accomplish.
  • Training events are not instructor friendly. You can set them up and easily make them available for users to find, but something as small as the instructor being able to click a button and send an email to everyone that signed up should be in there. There's no function for contact.
  • GreenLight has provided an easy route for our users to receive training online and in-class. They can quickly and easily search and sign up for anything on the catalog. Being in healthcare, we provide a lot of training on a constant basis. GreenLight has provided a great foundation for our company to accomplish it's training needs and goals.
  • Employees can quickly access and complete online trainings so that they can get back to their jobs.
Without having any experience with any other LMS' I can't really say completely. If the person is looking for a full featured system for courses or a place for users to sign up for training sessions, GreenLight is perfect. But getting to a place of knowledge where you're comfortable creating those scenarios is a very long road.
