Overall Satisfaction with Skillport

Skillport is being used across the whole organization as our hosting platform for all aspects of company-wide training. Every employee here has access to Skillport where they see general training modules and also personalized ones that only they or their department might be required to take. It addresses the issue of hosting various types of workplace training and gives us a way to host them all in one place that is accessible and specific to each user.
  • Good capability to host all kinds of training types (PDF, Powerpoint, captivate-created training content, etc.)
  • Gives an easy way for me as an administrator to track completion of the training content through the reporting feature
  • Easy to add and remove users to certain training groups as needed
  • SCORM compliance compatibility with Adobe Captivate projects is sometimes difficult to get right. Projects sometime shows as half completed when they should be tracking as fully
  • I would like to see more kinds of reporting templates that can show more specific data to how a user has accessed a training project
  • Not a huge issue, but Skillport does take about 24 hours sometimes to track completion of training content
  • Positively increased the number of staff taking the required trainings.
  • Positively allows us to have solid numbers on who takes the trainings and when.
  • Positively increased the general knowledge of our staff on workplace subjects through the diversity of training content we are able to host on the platform.
Both are great products, and very different, but both are designed around employee training and give ways to track completion of certain training content. Skillport is much more suited for general training though since it's a platform that can host a variety of training content, instead of just phishing. Skillport is used more for training for all departments.
Me and my other employees frequently reach out to support to address issues and they always help us in a timely manner. They are willing to work with you to solve and issue and are always available for help at any time. We haven't run into any instances where our problems didn't get solved.

It is well suited in pretty much all aspects of our training here since it supports all of our training content types. It allows us to easily host and remove training content as we need. Every employee takes their required training through Skillport. I can't really think of scenarios where it isn't appropriate for us; we use it daily with all users.
