Lesson.ly is the tool that I was on-boarded with at my current Job. This product is leaps and bounds ahead of my last employers in house software. It's easy to customize to your teams needs and specifications!

Lesson.ly has been our teams go to software since last year. It's a very quick way to make sure you cover all the training topics and knowledge that someone on your team needs to learn. You don't have to fear that someone wasn't trained on something because Lesson.ly let's create the training sessions as tasks to be completed. You even have the option to quiz your employees to make sure they retained the knowledge.

I personally like the reminders that I get when we launch a new product that I need to learn how to support. Even though I've been here for almost a year, we continue to broaden our product, thus needing educate our teams on the new features!

Likes Least

There isn't much to not like about Lesson.ly. While taking the courses our team put together, I did feel that it was a bit tedious. It's important for a team to realize that hands on training will always be the best way to get someone up and running with the knowledge they are trying to learn. Lesson.ly is great for managing that training process.

I wish Lesson.ly synced with a calendar app to set training/shadowing times for employees. That would be cool!

The layout is a bit dry as far as visualization goes. It's not super fancy in design, but gets the job done.

Recommendations

Make sure you get something that has a very versatile platform! Lesson.ly allows for you to add in videos and quizzes, which is a huge bonus.

Lesson.ly works well for our teams training needs.

Our employees like lessonly because it is lightweight with beautiful design - they don't need training on this simple software. It allows us to automatically distribute lessons in bite-sized chunks to ensure learning happens continuously. Their customer support is very friendly, responsible and adaptable.

Cons

I want to see their new feature rollout soon (they tantalize me with things on their product roadmap and make me impatient).

I've used Lessonly in two different organizations and I love it. It's the easiest way to onboard new employees, and (as an employee who has been onboarded with it), it's way more effective than traditional methods. Also, super user-friendly.

Pros

User friendly, really effective.

Cons

I'm sure there could be more functionality, but I don't feel like I'm missing anything.

Intuitive use, ease and simplicity are Lessonly's strengths. As a learner I appreciate the variety of ways curriculum is delivered (cards, screen shots, videos, etc), all followed with a quick comprehension quiz to help me retain the info. I look forward to lessons about new product updates from our training team every week!

Pros

Intuitive and easy to use.

Cons

As a product designed primarily for educating employees, there's not very natural way for me to administer training or lessons for my external customers, but we still get some great content out there using this system.

There is no shortage of options for taking your learners on a journey of understanding and the ability to use this interactive, yet independent, tool as a teaching aid greatly increases retention. Thanks, Lessonly!

Lessonly is an absolutely breathtaking piece of quizzing and learning software. It was used for approximately a year at my company and we used it frequently and very often seamlessly. This is a program designed to suit all of your online learning, quizzing, and testing needs-- and does a brilliant job at it. Were it more cost-friendly, we would still be using it.

Pros

It is very clean and aesthetically pleasing. It is easy to use and does not bug or fail often.

Cons

It is a rather costly software. It is probably due to how many features it offers, and they are so many, but the use for them wasn't there.

We love Lessonly. We have implemented the lessons in order to make the onboarding process more fun and engaging. We are beginning to create lessons that will help our customers better understand all of our offerings. The software is wonderful, the people are amazing and their culture seems to be lovely as well. If you have a moment, check out their blog or their social media feed. It is all as informative as it is witty and humorous.

From a creation standpoint, Lessonly had been incredible easy to use and allows me to integrate creativity into my lessons. I have fun creating the lesson and enjoy receiving feedback from my colleagues. From a learners standpoint, I appreciate Lessonly because it allows for a different kind of learning experience. It also allows me to take my time and really absorb the information. I love that there is learning center Dashboard that I can access at any time. Lessonly has been a wonderful addition to my company and I would definitely recommend this product.

Pros

The speed and functionality

Cons

The limitations in overall script formatting.

We transitioned to Lesson.ly from another, more complicated, LMS and have been very happy with the transition.

The team are extremely helpful and always on call to troubleshoot any issues. (Despite the time difference between us, we're in the UK). The training materials provided are extensive, but unnecessary sometimes as the it's very intuitive to use and implement. The integration with OBIQ (haven't tested the latest Slack integration), has been very useful and setting it up was easy.

The Reporting function has been very useful in seeing where learners are struggling and reassessing our approach.

Overall, we're very happy with Lesson.ly!

Lesson.ly is definitely a valuable tool if you're looking for something you can utilize quickly and easily. They do have really good support and are adding features regularly.

Having said that, the features included are very minimal. if you're looking for an immersive learning authoring tool, this probably isn't the best option.

Suggestions: Make your quizzes more responsive. Make copying/pasting slides easier. Add an undo button.

Pros

Easy to use, administer learning.

Cons

Minimal features.

As a supervisor in Customer Service, we look for various tools that will help our cs reps do their jobs as efficiently as possible. We have been using Lessonly for nearly a year, and we have had excellent results using it. The reps are able to check their progress and work immediately and go back over any incorrect answers. The supervisors are able to assign and reassign as necessary. Lessonly has been a real asset to our department!

Lessonly has been a great tool in teaching a social media class across our company. I've been able to access it with ease in bureau all across the country. Updates can be done pretty quickly. I just wish we could embed tweets again.

Pros

how easy it is to make edits and to access, regardless of location

Cons

inability to embed tweets
