Overall Satisfaction with Tovuti LMS

Our company needed an LMS because we didn't have one. And after reviewing many of them, Tovuti became the number one choice. We needed an LM as a place to host internal training as well as customer-facing training, So this allows us to have separate Learning portals for all the people we need to provide training to. We use it across the company as a whole for onboarding all new hires, and several teams have team-specific new hire training as well.
  • Lots of flexibility in terms of contact creation
  • Tons of interactive activities and quizzing options
  • The backend is incredibly convoluted and confusing and requires many many hours of practice and coaching to learn to use it
  • It takes nine clicks to do something that should take two. There are several examples of this on the backend in terms of organizing lessons within a course, Assigning courses, getting reporting, Etc. It's all very convoluted.
  • You can't download files that you've uploaded into the system which doesn't make any sense
  • Reporting
  • Permissioning and user management
  • Being able to upload or create so many different types of content; not being limited to SCORM
  • Being able to have an internal portal and an external portal all managers within the same system
  • We have scaled our new hire onboarding from a manual disjointed process into an automated smooth efficient system
  • Our customer success team now gets they are new hires trained faster and better than before and can go client-facing within three weeks instead of the previous eight
Most of my previous e-learning and LMS experience was with articulate. I love Articulate 360 but in terms of LMS functionality, it is not nearly as robust as Tovuti.

This platform is not for the faint of heart or the technically challenged. The LMS admin should write down detailed documentation of how they will use the platform internally so that others can use it as well. It takes a long time to learn. So it is best suited for more technical users. Because of the detailed permission in options, this is ideal for creating department-specific or internal versus external learning portals. It's really easy to make sure people only see or have access to things that you want them to. This is ideal for people who do not have a rapid e-learning development tool. This platform provides so many ways to create content in-app, that you don't need to come in with premade courses. This is less ideal for people who use SCORM.
