Great tool for on boarding and introduction for most frequently asked questions for the company.

Pros

Very user friendly and it's easy to complete when it comes to task or assignments to team members. You can also track members who are done with the training or topic uploaded on each profile.

Cons

I can't really say anything negative for this application. I love doing my assignments/trainings here on this platform.

Pros

I love how lessonly simplifies organizing large amounts of information and makes onboarding employees and customers easy and fun!

Cons

Lessonly is not great as database or resource center, especially if you have longer lessons. I'd recommend using a different platform if you want to have easy access to all the information for quick reference.

Pros

Excellent for small and medium companies, it is a great tool oriented to corporate training, but not so for online institutes or schools,. You can get started very quickly without a huge learning .

Cons

Make sure you have all the content and workflow well organized before using this tool, sometimes it is very difficult to look for information in the LMS, definitely need more customization in terms of formatting the content. They should improve the use of templates.

Great tool for a small to mid size business.

Pros

Easy to get creating and understanding the core functionality. Seeing as it is a relatively new tool it matches the needs of our younger audience who will be using it most often.

Cons

Although it is visually engaging, I wish there was a way to use custom images for the Lessons / Courses. Occasionally a little buggy with formatting, but overall not a huge problem.

Lessonly helps our entire team to maintain knowledge levels and quickly disperses new information and teachings.

Pros

I like the intuitiveness of the lessons. Everything is very easy to follow along, even when multiple forms of media are used (i.e - text, video, graphs, etc). I also really like the reminders that my lesson is due ;)

Cons

I had to download a separate app for recording demo's. I wish I could use the tracking/recording software I already use and integrate it with Lessonly.

We started to spend 60%! less time on remote teams onboarding, so it's got easier to adjust out business to changing technology demands.

Pros

Out onboarding plan had been a difficult to manage Excel spreadsheet for a long time.
Eventually, I was able to persuade management to use some more appropriate solution.
We compared Lessonly vs WorkRamp and lessonly was the winner because of more reach features set.
Thanks to feature that allow to track trainers activity, we were able to motivate experienced employees to create a number of training materials (most of people were able to use the app right away, without any training) and reward top performers.

Cons

Some of trainers reported they experienced formatting issues when creating complex training materials.

if you have anyone in your company that's remotely-based, lessonly is a godsend. so easy, very fair pricing, and wonderful support/CSMs. two thumbs up!

Pros

constantly improving (been with them for 1.5 years and they constantly release new features), love that their decisions are research-based and some of their workforce are academics who have studied learning/teaching techniques. SO EASY to just write a lesson... adding people is easy, managing teams is easy (especially with the upgraded version, you can "hide" irrelevant lessons from separate teams). recently improved search and UI of the learning library was much appreciated. you can embed gifs, images, videos, sound clips, etc into lessons to make it as interactive as possible. our CSM is always around to help with 1:1 advice and the general support team is wonderful as well!

Cons

creating and managing tags leaves something to be desired - just not as intuitive as other parts of the platform. otherwise i still yeard for an easier way to manage lessons, something VISUAL like a tree or flowchart to quickly understand what lessons exist under what paths/teams - that's pretty minor though and not nearly a dealbreaker

Training new hires and tenured employees. Testing employee company/product knowledge.

Pros

I use this product for all my new hires and sometimes tenured employees for additional training. The ability to built lessons within different paths is perfect for staying organized and making many different trainings to use continuously. I love that I am able to track my employee's progress within each path too, as well as the ability to test them on their knowledge.

Cons

The technical aspects of moving lessons from path to path is a bit long and could be made easier, maybe a couple of shortcuts could be made to make it a quicker process.

Lessonly has been a treat to use. It's simple to follow, and the video feature is awesome! We use Lessonly to send information to not only established team members but also the temporary workers that we bring on during our busiest times. It is an excellent platform for sharing "how to's" and to teach new skills or to brush up on old ones.

Cons

No negative thoughts here. I enjoy using Lessonly, and it's been problem-free. Good job, Lessonly Team!

Pros

as a small company they are always striving to improve and impress. couple feature have been released in the ~5 months we've had it, very intuitive and simple to use, the UX/UI is great and the possibilities are endless when creating a lesson. flipcards, embedded content, videos, images, gifs, formatted text, quizzes, etc. the gradebook is wonderful. all smooth sailing so far an a much needed piece of software for *our* growing company while we're scaling and creating more efficiencies. support team is very quick to respond and our CSM is always there to help.

Cons

my only complaints thusfar are very tiny things: every lesson has to be tagged & added to the learning library individually - there is no "bulk" creation template(s), so it's easy for creators to miss something. additionally, once you've got multiple departments in there, the list sort for all your lessons is a bit overwhelming. a more visual tree or chart would help a lot with lesson organization. finally, for employees who get a question wrong on their quiz, the amount of clicking around they have to do to see their feedback is inordinate

It was a simple, easy way for us to scale learning for our quickly growing organization. That being said, it feels like we grew faster than Lessonly was able to keep up with, so now we're looking for a more robust LMS that will provide more flexibility as we become more sophisticated in how we're approaching education as a company.

Pros

The interface is clean, and lessons are relatively easy to create. Because it has such a minimalist design, there were very little extra work needed to make it look nice and enticing for our team to use.

Cons

They've only just now begun to add support for SCORM, relying solely on their built in editor for awhile. The customer support team is responsive, but very few changes or updates seem to be made from user feedback. It also felt as though substantial updates to the app were few and far between. This was disappointing, to say the least.

It has been easy to measure our sales people's learning and where new employees are at in their industry knowledge-level. This is great so we know what level we need to start training each individual.

Pros

Lesson.ly is so simple to use - both on the lesson creation end and the user end. This is very helpful for my learners who aren't very computer-savvy.

Cons

The subscription is a little too expensive for the amount that we use it, and there are no smaller packages available.

Our employees like lessonly because it is lightweight with beautiful design - they don't need training on this simple software.

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

This software takes your content and chunks it. It does not create training - just a web version of your words. If your content is crap, this tool provides you with web-based crap. It aims to replace learning & development professionals, but does a poor job.

Pros

easy to use

Advice to Others

If you have to convert a document or presentation into "training" and don't want to hire a professional, use this tool. If you want to turn information into training, hire a professional.

User friendly, really effective.
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.

Cons

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