Overall Satisfaction with NovoEd

It is used to deploy global programs in the organization. Allows our online audience to access virtual training programs.
  • Easy to upload content and videos and easy to edit and modify. Allows to program when a module or section can be launched and to schedule specific communication messages to audience. Assignments can be approved to review the quality of deliverables.
  • The peer-to-peer learning features in NovoEd are great. Discussions allow to connect with the author of the discussion and also with peers. Peers can see other peer’s comments and submissions and comment and learn from those.
  • User friendly, easy to navigate and structure easy to understand
  • Leaderboard so participants can see how they are doing compared to others
  • The options to design a page are limited: page width, navigation, margins, headers, etc. Design feels limited
  • Does not allow for a lot of customization. All pages flow in the same way so after a few courses, feels repetitive
  • I am not a technical expert, so I do not know how to embed html content to create other options to display content, in an example: sections that open when you click, etc.
  • To have different languages, you have to clone the course and translate and create a separate course.
  • Very high participants engagement & participation (completion)
  • Social components allows to avoid an isolated experience
Much more user-friendly, easy to use. The LMS (Saba and cornerstone) are not user-friendly, tons of more clicks are needed to arrive at a course. We decided on Novoed because of the user experience for end users. LMS very focused on compliance and tracking and not in user experience. Fuse was much more social than our strategy, there every user can upload content. We wanted still to have the discipline of having instructional design, goals, etc, so Fuse was not an option.

NovoEd is well suited for synchronous and asynchronous training. Best suited if you want to leverage social components, discussions, assignments and peer-to-peer learning. We run global cohorts to take advantage of the diversity and create community. That works great.

I think that when you need to leverage other design options, in an example, add features to display content in other ways, other types of design even in page layout, then you have limited options (but I haven't found any other better than Novoed in this space).

Reports are useful, but more options would be appreciated.
