Overall Satisfaction with Lessonly

At Apogee we use Lessonly as our learning content management system for the entire company. We create and distribute learning content for use by every department. It supports both our onboarding functions as well as continuing education efforts. Primarily Lessonly is a resource used in support of training initiatives tied to specific business goals, but it also helps support our culture as we use it to distribute our company podcast as well as quarterly all-hands meetings.
  • Content creation is intuitive and easy to manage with paths and tagging.
  • User management is aided by integration w/our HRIS (BambooHR).
  • Sales and support staff encourage user feedback and are attentive when issues arise.
  • Media import (audio, video) are still in infancy. Reliability of uploaded content isn't 100%.
  • The Events function lacks some features that are more built out in other platforms.
  • Reporting interface has a bit of a learning curve, but overall isn't bad.
  • Lessonly has allowed for easier dissemination of information which has helped with employee engagement among our remote employees.
  • Finding creative ways to use Lessonly has allowed us to keep everyone aligned on our cultural values.
  • Using Lessonly within a live training event allows for higher learner engagement.
Lessonly is always responsive when I have a concern, although they haven't been able to resolve 100% of my issues. Whenever I've had feature requests or ideas they have taken them under advisement and in a few cases I've seen those requests implemented, which shows me they do really pay attention to their customers.
There is no comparison between Lessonly and LearnCore (previous LMS). Lessonly's robust feature set offered improvements in every area (learner management, content management, platform administration and customization). The ability to practice skills within Lessonly would also be beneficial (although to be clear this isn't a feature we currently use).
If you are looking for an LCMS (learning content management system) that offers easy learning material creation and customization, Lessonly is great. It's easy to use and offers some great organizational tools to keep your content up to date and easily accessible.

There are occasions where uploading audio or video content doesn't function very well, but Lessonly has been quick to offer assistance in resolving those issues.
