Overall Satisfaction with Lessonly
We are a K-12 school photography company who hires temps for the busy seasons and this used to be a large burden on our full-time staff. With Lessonly, we can assign paths for the new hires to go through and be ready to hit the ground running in a relatively short amount of time. The full-time staff is there to answer any questions they may have, but for the most part they are free to concentrate on other tasks at hand as the season ramps-up. Productivity increases because the full-time staff is not being pulled away for almost a full week to train new hires. We use Lessonly for all of our departments: Marketing, Photographers/Studio, Data Accuracy, School Support,etc. It takes a little while to build a beautifully engaging Lessonly, but totally worth it!
- Organizing lessons into comprehensive paths for an effective work flow
- Easy to build/create lessons for all types of jobs that are engaging
- Lacks some flexibility in the type of items that can be used in a lesson
- When adding a new learner, the email response with the Lessonly link is slow
- Increased productivity in pre and post production
- Decreased errors and issues with overall orders
The support team is very friendly and eager to help you learn the ins and outs of Lessonly. They can set up training for large groups or send links in a chat for individual help. They are quick to respond and if one person doesn't have the answer, they will collaborate with others to help find the answer.
Not Applicable. I had to choose a platform in order to move forward. I have not used any products like Lessonly. I have always trained staff the old fashioned way: spending several days to a week showing the new hires the ropes, getting them settled, sitting with them while they run through the first few jobs on their own, and then let them work solo. Lessonly eliminates 90% of that because it teaches them for you. You build the lessons once and then you can use them as many times as you want.
Lessonly can be used anywhere a digital learning system works. We use a mix of hands-on training and curriculum. For training our photographers, they go through the lessons with a camera on the desk to test with and tangibly learn what they are reading. Same with our production teams, we have physical representations of the camera cards and order forms that they will be dealing with on a daily basis to help solidify the training they are receiving from Lessonly. It frees up our full-time staff to get prepared for the new season. Once the new hires are done with their assigned lessons, they are ready to start shadowing staff. All of the training and shadowing is done in one day and they are ready to hit the ground running on day two! Lessonly has greatly increased our productivity.
