Overall Satisfaction with iSpring Learn

I teach in the Department of British & American Studies at Nagoya University of Foreign Studies, in Japan. At this time, I am using iSpring Learn in tandem with Quizmaker 8.1 to produce mobile learning material for students in my seminars and in other classes. If this trial is successful, I plan to recommend the use of Quizmaker & the Learn LMS on a department-wide or faculty basis. As a higher-ed educator, it's a problem creating learning materials in an elegant and efficient fashion, but iSpring's products make quizmaking a snap, and give my student-users a more appealing experience than they had when they used the materials I had created via ProProfs.
  • First, I like the feel of Quizmaker, especially that it's a robust, stand-alone piece of offline software. I disliked creating quizzes with online, web-based input because the creation interface was too clunky and unattractive. But Quizmaker makes creation as easy as making a PowerPoint and has a WYSIWYG style.
  • Next, I like the feeling of the Learn console and the report-generating tools at my disposal. Presently, I'm using Learn for a select group of students, but I see how I could easily expand that to a wider, online education market, given the tracking data implementation that could be used.
  • When students take quizzes in class, I'd like to see the results rendered into a multi-colored pie chart of scores, so that as students complete the test, they can immediately tell how they ranked compared to their peers.
  • I do not have enough experience with the product yet to answer this question.
When it comes to creating materials for learners, Moodle is a real drag to work with, and ProProfs is not much better. ProProfs' LMS is pretty good, but they don't have a good way to create good-looking materials offline. iSpring's Quizmaker seems to have great promise.
I think iSpring Learn would be an ideal LMS for any institution serious about delivering students instructional material that has real appeal to students, compared, say, to Moodle. The interface will also appeal to instructors teaching in a coordinated program.
