At this point I have only demo'd the product, but the Bridge system seems very easy to navigate and work in.

Pros

Simple and easy to maneuver through. I feel end users would be able to learn the system very easily.

Cons

Bridge is new and there is some functionality not there yet. I think this functionality would be developed in the future, I just don't know what their time frames are like.

Advice to Others

Give it a try, it might be just what you need.

I worked with a rep from Bridge when my company asked me to research potential new LMS platforms. he was kind enough to offer a demo and take me through the features and functionality. I found Bridge to be one of the better LMS options out there, and I loved that questions could be randomized based on different variables I could include in my question creation. Very beneficial for training purposes since the test becomes less about memorizing the questions and answers and more about actually learning. We have not yet gone with Bridge, but it will be at the top of my recommendations list this coming quarter.

Advice to Others

Get the demo.

Bridge is a wonderful LMS for an organizations looking to certify employees and members. We gained the most from Bridge once we were "bridged" over to their education based LMS, Canvas. Canvas has all the simplicity of Bridge but is now able to support our students and members that are enrolled in our education courses.

Pros

Simplicity and clean layout

Cons

The lack of comprehensive grading capabilities.

Advice to Others

Bridge, Canvas and Catalog are excellent products. Instructure (the parent company) has invested a lot into finding out just what online educators want..and it shows.

After shopping around for months I landed on Bridge. In dealing with a VERY knowledgeable sales staff it made an easy decision to go with Bridge. For the money there was no other LMS that came even close to what we received with Bridge. Their implementation and training teams are second to none and insured a successful roll out to over 10,000 users.

Pros

Ease of use and managment. Has a great question builder built righ into the platform that helps cut out Captivate usage when not needed. Also has a lot of extra features you don't get with other LMSs.

Cons

Can't think of one con.

Advice to Others

Stop shopping around. This is the BEST LMS for the money.

I honestly can not think of 1 complaint. Has been a great experience and the perfect platform for our 10,000 users.

Recommendations

Bridge delivers much more than expected at this price point. Even when there was a system limitation I was looking for they simply added it in to their next update. Custom software and user access available in the perfect package for a great price!!

When our group decided to produce an education program we had certain criteria which we knew would be a must for the LMS we would ultimately select. There are an overwhelming number of possibilities and pricing is all over the map. We settled on Bridge as it checked all the necessary boxes. Response from the staff at Bridge was quick and every question was answered to our satisfaction. What we didn't realize initially was that support was going to be such an important part of the LMS selection. Bridge support has been with us every step of the way. I would highly recommend the Bridge LMS platform!

Likes Least

No downside. There are no negative issues to be concerned about.

Recommendations

Ask for a demo to show the ease of use. Like most people, I had not used an LMS to create an online education program. You'll get a much better idea of what the program can do if you see a thorough demo.

We love the simplicity of the interface and the ease of use. Bridge is very intuitive.

Likes Least

Our use case of this platform is a little different from the way it was intended. We don't use it for corporate training, but rather to train our customers on the use of our software. Our customers are educators who need clock hours to advance in their career and document their PD. Bridge generates certificates, but they are not customizable. I wish Bridge would automatically generate certificates that that include the number of clock hours and a signature from the trainers.

Recommendations

Look at the ease of use first. If it is easy to adopt, you'll likely stay with the product longer. Then look at the features that you will need.

They are so much better than just a year ago. new features and updates are being updated all the time. They are headed in the right direction and seem to read our minds on what is needed next.

Recommendations

I assume I am like others in that you want it to be easy to use, intuitive for first time content providers and the GUI to be simple and elegant. The cost was also very reasonable and the support has been timely and productive.

Ease of use was critical for us and Bridge simply fit that bill better than any other LMS we looked at- and we looked at five of the biggest corporate LMS products on the market. The Instructure Team is always willing to listen to customer feedback and has made changes to address the needs of learners.

Likes Least

The reporting functionality is limited at this time but that has been steadily improving over the past few months.

Recommendations

Actively use the demo environment, create courses and programs and have folks within your organization provide feedback. Ask questions of your sales rep, they know the answers or can get them.

No matter what the relationship, challenges will arise. What matters to me more than anything is how the partner responds and handles challenges. Bridge is always highly responsive. They search for a solution until they have it. Usually, they will present multiple solutions and then we can choose the one that fits best for out business.

Likes Least

When we first started with them, a few of the features that we needed were not yet available. Fortunately, those tools are available and it makes life so much easier.

Recommendations

If you want to manage an LMS with ease, Bridge is a great choice. Bridge is one of the simplest LMS platform for administrators and learners. Do a trial and test their customer support team. You will not be disappointed.
