Efficient platform for holding online courses

Pros

I personally adore the way the program is thought out in terms of interface and software abilities. Nothing redundant, just efficiency combined with elegant simplicity and phenomenal ease of use. Another huge turn-on concerns administration system: an existing portal is quite simple and effective as for feedbacks. And last but definitely not least – customizing it with limitless access to respective tools won’t seem to be a problem for anyone. In terms of integration specifications there’s nothing extraordinary. Just like any other similar piece of software, it’s quite easy to install it whether your network is run by Windows, Linux of MacOS. There may be some differences as for overall performance in the future, but it is just about differences between OS specifications at this point. It’s possible to try a demo version first before getting a paid one. This is really awesome, because pulling that off you may evaluate the level of necessity as for purchasing what the vendor offers. In general, prices for Absorb LMS are not that high, so it’s quite affordable for the majority.

Cons

This is a quite rare experience when I admit that a product doesn’t possess any visible shortcomings, but this is the case. Everything works fine, and regular software updates fix some questionable stuff that may appear to be flaws of a definite version. What I would mention as a subjective con, getting rid of which I personally consider my own whim, actually, is access system, which is based only on existing user profiles. Sometimes it distracts a bit, which is why I would be more than happy if it was more open for customization.

Absorb LMS - Great Product and Customer Service

Overall I would highly recommend the Absorb LMS software to any company who is looking for a customized and affordable solution. They have an excellent implementation team that will work with you every step of the way until you are satisfied with the finished product. They also have a great customer service team that is always responsive to our needs and are willing to work with us to incorporate new updates to our system.

Pros

While working with the Absorb team we were able to fully customize an Learning Management System to fit the needs of our small company within the clinical trials space. We initially worked with a great implementation team who were very supportive in meeting with us each step of the way to gather the proper requirements for our final product. Once we were satisfied with our finished product we were able to easily introduce the software to our employees to use with minimal training required. We continue to be very pleased with the level of customer service Absorb provides when we have a new inquiry or suggestion for improving our employees' experiences.

Cons

The only con to Absorb's software was that they did not have a full suite of course content that met our needs in terms of internal training. We were able to work around this feature by uploading course content through another provider which was easily imported into our current system.

The LMS available to use for every type of person

Pros

More likely I still use the system for so long period of time due to the fact that this system is suitable for the long time using, thanks to their fantastic design I easily plan my studying schedule during the very process of learning something, this saves lots of time and allow you to learn something new permanently.

Cons

There are lots of different ways to use the system, and almost all of them works fine, however, when I suddenly decided to upload some of the materials of my own there was an occasion when I could not upload a certain picture thus, the course of mine was not fully completed and it was quite disappointing.

Works ok

Pros

It has an attractive UI and allows admin to track and monitor video completion by users.

Cons

I find it hard to update the videos. It also can be hard to organize videos and courses in an intuitive way because of how the software is structured.

Absorb is the best LMS for simple tasks.

Pros

I have been using Absorb LMS for my work for a year now, and this is the best learning management system in my opinion. I like how the program interface is implemented, it is very easy and simple to work with it. And thanks to its implementation on HTML5, you can work on any hardware platform, which makes it very convenient for our customers to use. With this system, I create and sell unique courses.

Cons

I do not like that it may take several days to solve any technical problems. The support service processes letters for a very long time and sends an answer. But otherwise, I am pleased with the work of the system.

It is very convenient to do all the work in one system

Pros

With Absorb LMS, I manage my client training business. I create my own courses and implement them thanks to a very good built-in e-commerce mechanism. This system allows me to save a lot of resources and overhead. The system allows you to quickly integrate into any environment thanks to a very flexible API.

Cons

Before using Absorb LMS you need to determine exactly what features you need. To use those applications that will solve your needs and do not overpay for unnecessary functionality.

Great for brand personalization

We are ensuring that our coaches receive consistent information through the modules we have designed. This platform has also allowed us also track module completion.

Pros

Since our elearnings are branded and we are focused on brand pride. We were able to personalize our elearning site, organize lessons based on due dates and topics and create reports on lesson completion.

Cons

We have had some issues with uploading different file types into our document library. This has been something that creates delays in our coaches being able to access the materials needed for our weekly trainings. Supervisors also then don't have the materials to effectively lead their weekly meetings.

Absorb LMS

Pros

It is very easy to use and clear as to what needs to be accomplished.

Cons

It is a bit difficult to generate a filtered transcript. There are a lot of filters to choose from so it can be somewhat overwhelming.

Terrible Support and lack of quality metrics

Pros

The admin features, while limited, are easy to learn and use.

Cons

The reporting and metrics provided by the base system are seriously lacking. In addition, their response time on support tickets when their is a bug in their system can take months or even years to correct with only a standard response that "development is investigating."

Absorb does a lot of awesome things. A few tweaks could make it even better.

Pros

Ease of course creation
Branded dashboards
Recently improved search page
Options for badges and certificates
Course and resource replication easy

Cons

Organization of Course and Resource folders is only alphabetical order
No way to create groups through a CSV upload
Enrollment and Resource availability rules limited for some items (i.e. can't exclude departments in enrollments)

Does most things you want

We are able to have people pay for courses.

Pros

The new learner experience they created is going to bring this software to a whole 'nother level. My ratings and this review is based on the new learner experience, not the previous version. It looks good, works well (has a few bugs they are actively working on), and does almost everything we need as a company. There are a few minor "wants" but the support team seems receptive to getting those going.

Cons

The back-end is not totally intuitive, and it's a little buggy. Sometimes you'll save something and it'll go back to the start page. It still achieves everything you need, it's just not super slick/seamless all the time.

Easily upload any type of multimedia, its UX and UI. is magnific. can access all function very easily whether you are a student, an instructor or an admin. keep a running list of enrolled and completed courses

Cons

The calendar could be better.. need more integration with other comercials calendars, Requires deep technical experience for Customize this system, does not allow to create a data repository per student in a simple way, it is not an integrated talent management system. Reporting features, they need to improve them a lot, . The administrative functions are dificult to navigate and there are steps that are unnecessary in several of the processes.

Highly visual learning management system. Reporting is top-notch. Can handle complex learning paths.

Pros

The ad-hoc reporting is the easiest I've seen in any LMS. Very easy to check the boxes of the info you're looking for and download a report. Literally only takes minutes. Can handle very complex learning paths.

Cons

It would be cool if they added a bit more talent management features. Career pathing is just "okay" in Absorb.

Beautiful LMS. The gate towards a pleasant learning experience.

Pros

The best of it: its UX and UI. Seamless and beautiful. You can access every function easily whether you are a student, an instructor or an admin. It makes learning a pleasant task.

It gives you an app for iOs and an app for Android users, so it has all scenarios covered. A lot of languages to customize which is fantastic.

Cons

I can't think of a con that is worth mention. I have to acknowledge that It could be pricey. But if you have the budget, go for it!

Beautiful interface and good customer service

Pros

I enjoy how I'm able to brand this software to my company. It seemed to have all the checkboxes that we needed and it supports HTML5. Admin functionality is a 5/5

Cons

Reporting reports are a bit limited. They aren't custom like the rest of the platform. Software sometimes freezes up at times
