Clear, Concise, & Quality Content

Pros

What I like best about Grovo is there approach to Mircrolearning. This approach makes learning take less of a toll on the user/learner. I also like that multiple platform approach. Content can be accessed from a desktop computer, laptop, or mobile device. Their learning meets you right where you are. You could be in the airport, doctor's office, or waiting on your child to finish practice. Regardless, you can access Grovo's platform and learn one task at a time. Right now I control our school's dashboard and I enjoy the fact that Grovo will allow its users to pre-test prior to learning content. Since each learner comes with their own background knowledge, you will be asked a set of questions prior to learning the content. Based on your responses, you will only need to view and learn what videos it realizes you are in need of. As educators, it is nice to see a company differentiating just as we are expected to.

Cons

The least I like about the vendor is the price. It is fairly costly for a business, school or organization.

I would avoid Grovo

Grovo is good for training on software, but if you are looking to upload your own proprietary training, I would avoid Grovo. Find a real LMS that will host your content without compressing it. We were sold on them as an LMS and the site never worked right. SCORMs always froze up and didn't report properly and video were compressed beyond what was legible on screen. The same content worked flawlessly on a Moodle site. Their customer service department was no help in fixing these issue and on several occasions told us that is just how it is and they ave no plans to fix it.

Hi Chris - we're sorry you've had this experience with Grovo. We've worked very hard to ensure that both our own proprietary training videos and uploaded videos function seamlessly. We've spoken recently to help you resolve the issues mentioned above, which I hope has been to your satisfaction. If you are still experiencing issues, please do reach out to your Client Success Manager. Thank you.

Microlearning is making a Macro difference at our firm.

Pros

Grovo is an innovative platform that delivers high quality content to workforces across the world through a simple to use interface designed to empower users to learning more effectively.

Cons

Grovo is solving a critical problem through microlearning. Just because the videos are short, doesn't mean you shouldn't be prepared to spend more time than you planned, not because you have to, but you will want to.

Already seeing fantastic results after just one month of use!

Pros

What I like most about Grovo is that it takes the responsibility of training every new hire off my plate. With Grovo, I can create the training in virtually any format, and it becomes the gift that keeps on giving, training new hire after new hire while I focus on other initiatives. Grovo is simple to use and has very helpful reporting tools built in. I don't have to micromanage my employees. I just set the due date, and a weekly email lets me know where everyone stands!

Cons

One thing Grovo does not have that other products do have is an award-based platform that allows users to earn badges and pendants. Not that it is necessary, but people like to see their accomplishments and work toward goals. Grovo doesn't provide a great incentive-based learning style.
