Overall Satisfaction with Lessonly

We use Lessonly as our LMS Software across our global offices. While it was primarily implemented for our sales enablement and services teams, other departments have started relying on it as well. We use Lessonly to push training content to new hires and product updates to existing employees as well. We are hopeful that Lessonly will help us centralize and standardize our internal employee training.
  • Lessonly's lesson creation interface makes it easy to create new learning content and is much easier to use than our previous LMS tools.
  • Learning content can include practice scenarios which which makes the material more engaging, memorable, and applicable.
  • New Lesson invitations and email reminders work well and are reliable.
  • I haven't used the user reporting tools as much, but I've heard from managers that it works much better than our previous LMS tool.
  • Lessonly's team is fantastic to work with and very responsive!
  • Their on-boarding process was very smooth and included an array of self-service resources.
  • New lesson invitations and email reminders could be more customizable.
  • Integrations are rough around the edges and haven't been as reliable as their main tools.
  • We've had some small problems with user management, but this could have been due to a problem with the HR software integration.
  • More buy-in into training across departments.
  • Better standardization of training material.
Their team is incredible! They are very responsive and helpful, even when they don't know the answer. I couldn't be more impressed with their team!
Lessonly is all around a better fit. Their user-interface is easier to use to create content, they provide access to better tools, and had a much better implementation process. With LearnCore especially, if the content wasn't video-based, it didn't work very well. This led us to spend extra time creating training videos that with Lessonly, could have been much more efficiently created with text, images, practice elements, and/or embedded documents. Also, their content storage has been much more reliable - we haven't lost any content with them!
Our experience with Lessonly has been fantastic! From my experience, they are well suited for companies of any size that are at any stage of training content development. Training lessons can include videos, text, gifs, practice scenarios, quizzing, or embedding virtually any web-based element. In fact, I haven't hit any limitations around this yet.
