Schoox is a social eLearning solution that makes it easy for companies to deliver employee training, development, and certification the way today’s generation wants it – on their phone, from anywhere and in a social setting.
Available online or through the iPhone App Store and Google Play, Schoox takes online training to the next level with the ability to create custom-branded academies that house company content including videos, images, lectures, documents, exams and third-party coursework.
For large corporations, this ensures employee training is consistent and compliant across multiple stores, states or countries. Companies can also beef up their training library by adding expertly produced online video training and coursework.
A learning management system at the core, Schoox’s solution helps managers train employees before they walk through the door, while offering continuous learning options to boost compliance, self-learning and growth. Managers are able to create new courses on the fly through a simple drag-and-drop dashboard. Schoox also makes it easy to assign new coursework to everyone or specific groups.
As employees move through their coursework, managers can track individual progress, monitor how employees performed on exams and take advantage of opportunities to provide coaching or instruction. Schoox provides insights and reporting into the coursework so that managers can see which exam questions or video lectures cause roadblocks and address training needs immediately.
Completion badges, industry certifications, leadership and management courses and the ability to move from learner to instructor are available through the solution, creating an interactive and engaging learning environment.
Schoox is part of Red Book Connect, which was founded in January 2013. Schoox has delivered over half a million video lectures to its learners.

The system utilizes a drag and pulls system, so there's no need for an LMS admin which is a huge plus, they do provide access to third party contributors for content. Most of the content however, is geared toward the hospitality industry so unless you are building your own content or have a different content provider you may struggle there a bit. It has a wide variety of usability including social media elements, virtual classrooms, and gamification. All in all, it's a good system.
Easy to use
Doesn't require an admin.
Unless you work in hospitality or restaurant the third party content struggles.

I"ve used schooxs while working at subway, and I think it's one of the best systems out there. You get to work directly with the founders when you have a concept you want to employ. It's cloud based so it doesn't take up a lot of space and you get unlimited storage. For those organizations that do not have content, schoox has several partners that can design content for you or help you build your own. It's a great platform.
easy to use
not all the content is great for your business they are mostly in the retail restaurant business.

Schoox it's fairly new compared to many of the other systems out there, in fact, many of it's manufacturing practices for it's LMS come from third party partners. This gives it a high level of innovation but at the same time, it allows for too many alpha and beta test situations.
Easy to use
Lots of innovation and ease of use
Too new of a product

I have used schoox in the past when it was still in it's infancy about 6 years ago. The great thing about schoox is that it literally scales with your organization, more importantly as you continue to grow any changes that you feel the LMS should incorporate their staff is willing to incorporate. For example, when I was working with them I suggested that they create deeper down tracking, so instead of just tracking regions and or a group of stores, break it down to individual stores and or even employees. Schoox has many of the functions that more expensive LMS utilize i.e. saba and cornerstone but at a fraction of the price. Furthermore, because they specialize in the restaurant industry their software easily communicated with hot schedules to allow easy integration of your employees.
Easy to use an integrate, easy support staff to work with, easy platform to use without an LMS admin.
Many of their services like the KPI *Key Performance Indicator* platform is in beta phase and although they offer such things don't generally offer the usage they promise. They need to test things like this before they offer it to its vendors.
If you want to utilize this like with any LMS do your research and see what works for you. All LMS systems are different and you have to see if what they do works with your company culture and needs.

It has a lot of features, and really granular control over what is displayed, who can see it, etc. It keeps track of who has done what and how much time they spent doing it - so you can see if someone actually did what they were supposed to do. You can put up "courses" that have videos or other formats, and then quizzes afterwards. It's really a solid way to train staff.
The cost! It was already a bit expensive, but we really liked the features and couldn't find anything else as good, so we went for it. However they just hiked the prices a huge amount. So now we're going to drop it. Also, while there are a lot of features, the site's navigation is not very intuitive and you will end up hunting for things for a while when you need to do a certain action.
I would recommend that you look at other competitors, or even find a way to train with a DIY approach if you are a small enough business for that to be feasible - such as videos on youtube and paper quizzes. There are some free options out there for this type of software, even if they're not quite as nice as Schoox.
