Review of NEO LMS (LanSchool)

Overall, it has been helpful.

Pros

I like that they make improvements, add new features.

Cons

Overall, no issues that I don't like. There are a few features that I would change (instead of having to remember to "give" an assignment, have a box that automatically comes up and asks you if you want to go ahead and give it, that way you don't forget) but overall no complaints.

School Use

Pros

We use this LMS for our K-12 school for teachers and students. I like the ease of duplicating courses from one year to another and the ability to have multiple teachers per course.

Cons

The calendar doesn't integrate well with iPhones and I've been restricted to desktop/ laptop use. I'd also like to have a better way to give feedback to submissions than what is currently available.

Love NEO, but hate NEO LMS (the app)

Pros

Love how through apple classroom you can lock students to this app to force them to not cheat on a NEO quiz.

Cons

The app is very glitchy! Sometimes it just shuts down when a student is working in it. Also not all of the quiz features work on the app. The first time students log in to the app is very confusing for them since they have to exactly type in the name of their district.

NEO LMS Review

Pros

Its intention of being a learning management software.

Cons

1. Lessons are mostly by text and do not allow students to go through them step by step.
2. It is also not very easy navigating through the different functions, for ex. Gradebook
3. There are terms you have to know (for example, sticky) so you know what the function is, but no definition is offered anywhere
4. Math symbols are very limited
5. Tips on how to use shortcuts for classes are not easily accessible

Blended Learning Made Easy

My system of teaching the lessons and assessing the students changed when our institution adapted NEO LMS. Before, I am always worried of the suspension of classes and its effect to the flow of the lesson to be delivered but having NEO with me it eliminated the fear of not meeting my class in a face-to-face set up. NEO brings me closer to my students whether we go synchronous or asynchronous.

Pros

NEO LMS is very easy navigate. Lessons can easily be done even without the users guide or manual. I really like the customer support because of its efficient and quick response. In terms of grading assessments, I find it easy with the use of its Rubric feature. Before, I used to have a lot of papers to bring whenever I go but with NEO LMS, I just need to pull out my tablet to check the submissions of my students. Lastly, my students are more engaged and they enjoy more because of the gamification feature which other LMS don’t have.

Cons

I cannot think of any cons about NEO LMS. Its the perfect LMS for me. I have tested and tried other LMS which are complicated to use. But with NEO, everything is easy. If there is one thing that needs improvement, it would be the mobile app specifically for android devices.

NEO for Education

Pros

Once you learn the program, it has many helpful features.

Cons

It's difficult to find answers on the program itself. I rely on colleagues for help. The grading settings can be particularly confusing.

The Joruney with NEO LMS

Its basically using a platform that will complement face to face learning.In the near future, Online Learning will be fully employed, hence this will really be of help. NEO LMS is friendlier than other providers, at least in my experience as Administrator and the one supervising the implementation of the same.

Pros

The features that are updated from time to time. The capacity of the teacher to be able to check assessments as well as compute the grades.

Cons

I do not have anything against any of the features of NEO LMS.

NEO Online Classroom

I use this to manage an online classroom for 500 users. It is fairly easy to create assignments and monitor student completion. The NEO team is responsive to any questions.

Pros

Developer continues to add features.
Dependable platform.
Easy to use for student and teacher
Allows posts within assignments for student-teacher communication

Cons

Student-Teacher messaging system is not searchable for key words and does not show all messages sent to a student.

High School user

I have been a long time user. I have provided tech help to other teachers in my school and district. The platform continually improves. I am a big proponent of NEO.

Pros

Customer service is stellar. They implement feature requests. Response and fixing issues is fabulous.
Don't be afraid to ask for help. Granted you should try to read the Help section first, but their tech help is fast and friendly.
This year I am 99% paperless and Neo makes this possible.
Students and parents can easily access info.

Cons

The seat chart has a lot of potential for improvement.
Tip for new users: click on gear icons for user configuration.
Whenever I am frustrated, I always let them know and they rectify the situation.

This is targeting as it best!

So much help and ideas to create interactive and customizable learning paths.

Pros

As an eLearning Designer, I truly appreciate personalized features and prices! Cypher Learning is one of my favorite companies in the industry right now. And offering special prizes and features for education is a must!

Cons

As amazing as its features are, sometimes it can get overwhelming. Too many options and not all teachers or schools have the real experts to make the best of it. Anyhow, the users manual you can download and the many tutorials available are very helpful.

Refuse finally form an old type of studying

Pros

Integration of this LMS to our private-school process passed without any problems, bugs or stuff like this, everything was very smooth and not less important fast, we did not need to discuss the details, responsibility and stuff like this, the supporting team helped us to implement everything, understand how everything works and explained all that we needed very prompt. This is the very beautiful system with bright colors which just erase the old ideas of black-and-white studying, now everything is colorful and funny.

Cons

In my opinion, this system is more suitable for the students about sixteen-eighteen years old and less, and for example that materials for students from universities may not fit in this system, but it is just my humble opinion, for our school everything is more than great:)

Best Learning Management System

Pros

Very easy to use educational platform. I liked NEO LMS in use, I did not find any problems with this software. I like that students can easily use this program, that the tracking system works quickly and there is an opportunity to enter the phone. I have an excellent opportunity to create a quality education system that helps students learn. I'm completely satisfied with this workflow. I've been working with this platform for a long time every day. I had the opportunity to make the learning system unique, and my research is much better and more productive. It is convenient to work with all the useful skills that I and students need. I created courses for students so that they can save their time and receive information in an accessible form.

Cons

I believe that this is the best management system for training. The only thing I would like is to add some functions like a extended webinars.

We have integrated NEO LMS into our learning process

Pros

You can easily organize the entire learning process with NEO LMS. Basically very good service for training. Excellent integration with third-party services, such as Google and Turnitin. An interesting function of the skills, because of this, learners are more motivated and know that they have much to grow.

Cons

I sometimes did not receive a notification about repeated sending homework from some peoples. I would like to receive more information about the process, I need more reports.

Highly customizable LMS that works well for administration and academics management.

Pros

- Flexibility of how much of the entire systems potential you want to use.
- Pleasant interface is easy to use for people of all ages.

Cons

- Mobile App is virtually equivalent to using a phone browser and is not always very mobile-friendly.
- There's still a general clunky feeling to the whole interface (even on desktop). Slightly improving the aesthetics can go a long way.

The best in the market! I have tried many LMS and none like NEO.

Productivity! This product allows me to be more effective in what I do and profess.

Pros

NEO has it all! I've a course creator and content integrator since 1996 and I can create academic solutions for an entire region, district and schools. NEO allows me to measure student performance across each boundary and create a community of learning among all stakeholders. NEO has very powerful tools that goes beyond the regular institution administration and operation, this is a holistic education tool!

Cons

As an educator and technology user in the classroom need to have off-line capability so in countries like mine where electricity is not a constant student can keep working while there is no connectivity and resume once they are back within the range of our net coverage.

NEO LMS is easy to use, offers competitive prices and its support has short response time.

Pros

As an administrator, I like the ability to synchronize enrollments using API. I also appreciate that with Enterprise Plan I can now re-activate archived users myself.

Cons

I would like to have choice to select from more roles for our users, or even better - to have a role which can be customized. We need stronger Monitor or weaker Admin account.

NEO is easy to use, delivers what it says it will, and is easily customized.

We get interactivity with the kids and the ability to both do teacher-led and self-paced activities. The adding of standards to assignments and quizzes and the ability to see a master wheel for each student is incredible. The gamification features work perfectly for our gaming and coding focused middle school.

Pros

The ability to apply standards to assignments and quizzes and see mastery wheels for each student based on those standards is FANTASTIC! With our focus on gamification, we can award badges and points, set up leaderboards and more! It's perfect for the unique, highly personalized learning that we focus on in our school.
