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.

I really like how simple they have made the system. It is intuitive and makes it easy to bring teammates in and wards off the "onboarding blues"

Cons

I don't think I can honestly pick out anything that I didn't like. This is a great product that certainly helps bigger companies that are onboarding and training frequently.

This is the future of training teams across the globe. Its a small company and they've released a couple features since I used it. Seems like theyre on top of updates and service

The customization of quizes and tests can be very very time consuming. It can some times be a bit buggy but not a deal breaker.

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.

Cons

broken search functions, unintelligent functionality of some of the features, funny because as i type the characters in the box are not counting up as they should.

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. It allows us to automatically distribute lessons in bite-sized chunks to ensure learning happens continuously. Their customer support is very friendly, responsible and adaptable.

Cons

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.

Intuitive use, ease and simplicity are Lessonly's strengths. As a learner I appreciate the variety of ways curriculum is delivered (cards, screen shots, videos, etc), all followed with a quick comprehension quiz to help me retain the info. I look forward to lessons about new product updates from our training team every week!

Pros

Intuitive and easy to use.

Cons

As a product designed primarily for educating employees, there's not very natural way for me to administer training or lessons for my external customers, but we still get some great content out there using this system.
