Overall Satisfaction with Lessonly

We use Lessonly across the whole organization, primarily for new hire orientation and onboarding, as well as ongoing training for employees. We use it to scale our training and to take a blended learning approach so people can retain more of the information they learn.
  • Open to feedback and ideas and constantly innovating and iterating on their product to serve new needs that arise
  • Making me feel like more than just a customer: They aren't transactional and focus on building the relationship and making me feel heard.
  • Extremely easy to use product so building content takes little time, and I can leverage other subject matter experts to build content as well.
  • For democratizing content creation, it's difficult to make sure that other creators follow the same tagging system. It would be helpful, if when creating a lesson, everyone were prompted to add the tags, pictures, descriptions, etc so that I don't have to follow up with them to do it.
  • We're trying to make Lessonly our one-stop-shop for internal training, and we need a more robust registration system in Lessonly to make that happen. Things like events with multiple sessions, linking to relevant lessons within the event, seeing a calendar view of upcoming events, etc, would be helpful for that.
  • Quicker new hire onboarding
  • Time saved by blending in-person and virtual training
They are extremely responsive and open to feedback and ideas. They quickly respond to my questions.
Overall, Lessonly is the best interface I have found for content creation. Others seem to have more gamification and social learning aspects, as well as content curation aspects, which I would like to see from Lessonly. We stay with Lessonly because of its ease of use both as a creator and as a user and because of the ability to make online training interactive through questions, flip cards, gifs, etc.
Well suited for:
  • Blended learning: as pre-work, in-class worksheets, and follow-up post-work to reinforce what they learned
Less well suited for:
  • Engineering training, even though we try to use it for this, because people can't code within Lessonly. An embed feature could help with this.
