Transforming Organizational Learning

We launched Degreed throughout the entire organization and the base platform for employee development. We had an amazing pre-launch design, faultless launch and almost zero tech support with only 2 tickets for the population of 1,200 employees. It allows the every employee to be in control of their own learning and development. We used it as an integral part of our talent development process tied to quarterly development check-ins. We have used it to create learning groups around key topics and have curated learning paths to reinforce our cultural and leadership principles. A really nice wow experience for new hires to see how they can start learning from day 1. It totally and seamlessly integrates with all content on our LMS and Intranet sites. We are a cloud-based technology company that needed a simple but elegant learning ecosystem. It has totally met our expectations.

Pros

Content aggregation very strong. Ability to create learning paths from both external and internal content and assign to users/groups. Ease of creating and following learning groups. Easy to tag and create daily learning feeds. So easy to share and add content from any web source to existing internally create learning paths. Very easy to administer and support. Great UI. Very affordable.

Cons

Would love to see more action oriented triggers to users as reminders to nudge learners to stay active. Would love to see a more robust way to measure if what the organization is learning is making a difference to the business or to customer's experience.

Best way to find, access and track ALL learning!

When I realized that our LMS was not utilized, I began researching options. I had heard from Degreed right when they appeared on the scene, but the timing wasn't right. Once the LMS contract was nearing expiration and seeing low usage, I reached out to Degreed and eventually implemented about 1000 licenses at my organization to pilot the system and show the proof of concept to my leadership team. I first rolled it out to our top 20 executives and created pathways, goals, etc. for the group. I showed the team all the great content formerly on our LMS that I added to the platform as well as links to books, articles and videos we shared as an exec team. The group was won-over and I then rolled it out to our next level of senior leadership, about 250 leaders from across the globe. My colleague facilitated a few webinars on how to access Degreed and we created a group so we could recommend content as well as track usage. The majority of the new users took to the system quickly and positively. Since that group of leaders also participates in our annual Leadership Summit in the spring, I created a pathway that served as pre-work for the gathering. I leveraged the healthy competition we have in our organization. Degreed sponsored a booth at our summit, so Our Client Success Director joined and heard all the rave reviews of the system. Since then, we have added a few other groups and are experimenting with getting the most usage from employees at every level in the organization. We are about to propose adding more licenses earlier than anticipated since the word is out and people across the company are asking for Degreed!!

Pros

I like how Degreed curates current and relevant content from both the web as well as proprietary content that it is linked to. I love the ability to save articles, videos, etc. for later and go back to them when I can...and have them all in one place. I appreciate the ability to track all learning and not just that which is "traditional" and getting credit for the books I read, conferences I attend, webinars I participate in, etc. As a learning leader, I find tremendous value in being able to create groups, pathways and goals and then recommending learning content to those who I feel would benefit from it the most. I like the co-branding so that our employees know that Degreed is not a third party, but rather a partner. The more I use Degreed, the "smarter" it is. I receive daily emails with recommended learning based on what I have consumed, who I am following, what I have saved for later, etc. Very cool!

Cons

The lack of a fully developed native app and the reporting are lacking. I would like the same experience on my mobile device as I have on my laptop. I would also like the ability to pull/download and create dynamic reports as well as allow others to do so w/o full admin access.

Disappointed

Pros

First a disclaimer: I am a user of the individual, free version. On to the pros: I really love the whole concept of using this service for a central location to keep a record of my informal learning. The bookmarklet, in particular, is very handy. I've installed it on both my browsers. It automatically harvests the URL and other metadata it needs and assigns the point values accordingly. For instance, on a YouTube video, it knows how long the video is. Customer support response time is quite reasonable for what I'm paying.

Cons

Now to the disappointment: Degreed touts itself as "The learning portal to find, track & recognize ALL learning." It is not. It will not give accurate credit for learning unless it is publically available. For example, eLearning videos from my professional sites are given only 0.03 points credit for everything, even if the video I watched was over an hour long. I tried a few things to get around that to no avail. The response from customer service was there was nothing they could do.

Good Solution When You Can't Afford An LMS

Site sources free or for fee learning on the web. You can think of it as the Pintrest of Learning. Individuals can sign up for free or organizations can host a site for a fee. Employees take their learning profiles with them when they leave employment. Employers can post their own internal training as well. Beware that Degreed only points to a course file, they don't house it. You need SharePoint or a Dropbox that is accessible for employees to access the actual course files. Overall, Degreed has been a great solution for us to provide training resources as well as deliver our own proprietary internal training.

Pros

Portability of user information when an employee leaves the organization Draws on many different learning providers, a lot of which are free They are constantly evolving their product

Cons

You have to house your course files (SharePoint, DropBox, or a server) and point Degreed to it. Degreed does not house any course data.

Useful tool for L&D - but could be improved

Pros

- The gamification effect is real - it's definitely been an extra incentive for me to go out and keep up my development. - Chrome extension is really helpful for encouraging use - Creation of pathways is a nice simple way to set up cross-media training plans

Cons

- Category feed (at least for me) has not been hugely relevant, and there is not much I can do to customise it. - The scoring of different learning resources can be hit and miss. If something is behind a paywall Degreed seems unable to gauge it's length and will assign it a low score. - No way to easily re-categorise something as e.g. an article, and not a video - Would love greater analytics e.g. to see how my team are progressing
