    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.

    Pros

    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

    My manager was able to add gifts and make the Lessonly trainings very interactive and fund. Also easy to navigate.

    Cons

    The questions were very easy to answer from a user standpoint. I'm not quite sure how great that is for an admin stand point though.

    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.

    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.

    Lessonly has been great so far, there isnt anything I would complain about not liking, the UI does have everything centered when I wish it was left.

    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

    Cons

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).
