Easy to use

Pros

It can be a little complicated if you're not used to it. Also, if you opt for too many questions, you can lose some good candidates.

Good features and easy to configure,

Pros

I just tried the trial version, it is really good and feel that it can be a very good LMS solution for companies struggling with weird and costly LMS systems. Has most of the desired features you would want in a LMS. Works efficiently on mobile devices as well.

Cons

Some how the look and feel makes me feel, its not really modern looking. Community was fair but not very responsive.

Great for Setting Up Training

I really enjoyed using TalentLMS. I created a variety of training videos using Camtasia, then embedded the video trainings into TalentLMS, and added quizzes and notes for our remote staff. It was a vast improvement from what we had been doing. Users were easy to manage, and it was fairly easy to create a new training.

Pros

TalentLMS is really easy to use. It has a clean look and is simple, but can be customized a little more when needed.

Cons

Doesn't have as many features as I would have liked. I would have liked to see some ability to make training videos or recordings within the software.

TalentLMS has been the most helpful service to create and deploy our training services.

Pros

At Covenant, we really enjoy that TalentLMS allows for us to easily change anything we need to on any of our courses with ease. With that efficiency at our disposal, we can meet all of our client's needs.

Cons

The text editor for TalentLMS requires that you use tags to customize the text the way you want it to appear on the screen. I do believe that it is something that they are going to change in one of their upcoming releases.

Compared to Moodle or a Wordpress LMS I found set up very easy, and was pleased with the features.

I wanted to migrate some e-learning content from a Moodle installation and have shopping cart functionality.

Pros

Talent LMS is simple to set up and although it is good looking out of the box, there are plenty of opportunity to customise the layout, branding and colours. I'm really pleased that it offers both SCORM and xAPI support, and makes setting up the shopping cart very easy, with lots of options for discounts, vouchers, etc.

Cons

Although TalentLMS has good accessibility features I think the SCORM and xAPI launch button needs to be looked at - it doesn't seem to get keyboard focus and is a problem if you don't use a mouse. I think it would be very easy to add a javascript to give the 'launch' button focus when the page loads.

I must say that the support excels at all times.

Pros

Simple user interface for administrators and users. Intuitive navigation of features. Option to segregate portal into branches and user into groups is the plus point. Adding courses is made easy using template. Custom branding and labelling is another plus point.

Cons

Not found any until now. Need to find more about API integration with other business applications and the connectivity of the integrated video conference function.

Learning was never closer to the source

Improve the virtual experience and learning

Pros

The main educational centers around the world investigate and invest in the development of "virtual" platforms which allow the concept of learning, as well as reach an increasing number of people and organizations. The modern corporations and industries have done the same, to be able to have a presence and reach their consumers quickly and safely. That is why, TalentLMS, allows the healthy management of learning, presenting its users to the big market for quality education, at moderate costs, depending on their needs and without losing the contact of the people who require it, and better, skipping the limitations of distance and time.
Another feature is the ease of use, very intuitive for management and very functional, thus creating a course, make presentations, use videos, documents, texts and other formats. But even more, with this platform, you can create tests, follow up detailed and statistical of your students.

Cons

The current platforms seek to improve and update the interfaces and relationships between them, enriching the experiences with the users, these platforms want to take them to another level, for which, they develop other ways to make the virtual experience, something very close, of this So, if you could elaborate an application that in real time, is able to clarify the doubts and guide the experience, even if it is for the people who start on the platform, then, it would be possible to accelerate the knowledge and mastery of all the advantages. Luckily, the support staff is attentive and tries to respond quickly to the doubts that users may have.

Talent LMS exceeded our expectations when we were in dire need of a LMS for a big organisation.

Easy to use.

Pros

Easy to use. Learners access has never been so easy. The badges concept is fun and easy and would increase the attention or create interest in the learner. For the Administrator, configuring a course is very easy. Very easy to navigate. Price is also not a big pain point. easy to procure and install

Cons

Support is not from India. Also , not sure how the system for support works. Also, the demo trial version has restriction has very limited access and hence we would not be able to check exactly how the system works.

Easy to use, user friendly features and easy to manage.

Pros

Good and prompt support from their support team on questions and assistance required. Various subscription plans to suit every business needs. A good choice to venture and start up LMS for companies which are new to LMS.

Cons

Old school layout. Better to have layout slightly with modernized looks. Same goes for the assessment segment where layout/backgrounds can be further enhanced, rather than current one which is of blank white background.

We have a startup training site and TalentLMS was easy to setup and create courses.

Easy to use.

Pros

I like the flexibility of how I can build my courses and get them deployed. I like that they listen to their users and add features as they grow.

Cons

I wish it had better SEO capabilities and had more of a complete website host ability. Currently, have to host my www site with a different provider and try to make the two look seamless.

It is the perfect tool that we were looking for, it has many features that save us time and money.

We decided to move to web-based software to deliver our online classes and TalentLSM gave us all the tools we need

Pros

We researched several LMS systems before deciding on TalentLMS and you guys won the search. It is very easy platform to learn and manage, have included the most useful features in the system, ability to create basic courses easily. It has some impressive features. One of them that we liked is that we have the ability to generate detailed reports of our students. We are satisfied with the choice.

Cons

Limited to customize. We would like to be able to customize pages more deeply now is very limited.

TalentLMS is exactly what we've been looking for, but wish we'd found it sooner!

A simple and affordable solution to our ongoing LMS development challenges.

Pros

TalentLMS offers all of the features that we created in our own LMS, plus all of the features we planned to implement and lots more. The best parts are the simple setup and configuration, and the ability to quickly switch between different roles; no more individual accounts for a administrator, instructor, and learner.

As an instructor, building courses is a doddle. Choosing content types and adding material is streamlined and methodical. There is plenty of content types to choose from, and I particularly like the ability to bundle instructor-led training into a course because this fits our certification model perfectly.

Of course, any decent LMS will support SCORM and the xAPI, but TalentLMS goes one further and handles CMI5 packaging and credential handshaking, too. I'm also impressed with the highly configurable gamification settings, which can be tuned to our training market perfectly.

Overall I am impressed with the presentation and usability of the platform. There is, of course, plenty of room for improvement and expansion, but for its affordable price we couldn't want for more in an LMS for our start-up.

Cons

I would like to see more control for language variations. Some of our courses will be provided in multiple languages and it would be great to partition course material by language. We currently use a custom course field to hold a BCP47 language code, but there is little more we can do at the moment to prevent a de-DE user from seeing (by default) content that is for fr-FR, zh-CN, or sl-SI, for example. I would be happy to consult on this request because internationalisation, localisation, and language is my profession.

I have found the WordPress API to be lacking in features and customisation. It would be convenient, even in the simplest of terms, to list courses in horizontal tiles instead of a vertical list, which isn't pretty.

Lastly, it would be great if TalentLMS could provide access to the catalogue for unregistered users (or people that have not signed in) for a selection of courses or lessons. We offer free courses or free lessons to help advertise the service and attract new instructors and learners, so it would be great if we could pick and choose free courses (or courses/lessons marked as "Taster" sessions) to be accessible by anyone without signing in.

My experience using TalentLMS has been wonderful. It's simple to use, yet also very sophisticated!

We host video learning content on TalentLMS and it works great for this purpose.

Pros

The design of this software is well thought out. Although TalentLMS has many sophisticated features (everything one could possibly need and more), it's designed in such a way to minimize user complexity. As an admin and instructor, I'm able to get things done quickly without much time and effort (with limited technical knowledge). The visual look and feel of an LMS is important to me. Many LMS systems look "techy" and are NOT a pleasure to use. TalentLMS is clean and elegant and provides a great experience for admins, instructors and users. I think of TalentLMS as the Apple computer of LMS systems. Another big differentiator is that TalentLMS enables instructors to create courses quickly without a painful learning curve that kills productivity. Learning content is placed into buckets called learning objects. Any kind of content hosted anywhere can be used. Making changes to courses is a snap. Also, I found the white labeling and customization of TalentLMS to be surprisingly easy. Support documentation is thorough and well written. I was able to quickly customize our learning portal without doing any HTML coding whatsoever in about 30 minutes! No help from technical experts needed. Before deciding on TalentLMS, I reviewed dozens of LMS providers (a hair-pulling experience) and found most to be very expensive, complex, lack-luster on feature and visual appeal. I just don't have the patience or the time to deal with those handicaps! We are very glad to have discovered TalentLMS.

Cons

After about a year, I haven't encountered any problems using TalentLMS. Of course, there's always room for improvement on the way to perfection. There appears to be a little overlap in the learning objects - Content, Web content and videos are really just "content". However, this could be by design. Maybe there should be a universal content object that accommodates all content types. The only videos accepted for the "Video" object are YouTube. However, we use another video hosting platform to protect our content from download, among other reasons. However, this is not a real problem because we just embed our videos using the content learning object, which looks sort of like a WordPress content box. Just copy the embed code from the video provider and paste into the content box. That's it; works great. The only other thing I can think of is that the default HTML video player could use a few more control bar options such as view quality selection and a way to set download video or disallow download video. However, this is not a problem for us because we use embed video codes from our video hosting provider and therefore the provider's video player is used instead of the default HTML player. We control the features of this video player on the video hosting side.

A great LMS Starter

A quick LMS launch and user-friendly.

Pros

The ease of set up and the gamification element make the courses extra engaging for our course members.

Cons

I would have like a more detailed tour of the software as I felt like the information was sometimes scattered and to learn as I go.

Training platform

Pros

I like the tools for tests. Fast response and excellent customer service. The platform is multifunctional, easy to use and has many opportunities for creating courses. The program also offers many options for customization from the point of view of the domain, theme, and logo. We used this software for internal training - courses of improvement of professional skill and training for new employees. I use this program to manage some of my own projects. It definitely helped me to better define my ideas and share them more effectively.

Cons

A paid version can be quite expensive to connect with just a few students. During the session, I have no big problems. I can be sure that all my ideas about the product will be of good quality. In addition, I have no problems with access from mobile devices.

TalentLMS has an unbeatable combination of price and features

An unbeatable combination of functionality and price!

Pros

We searched long for an LMS to use for our online training venture and after testing some of them we came to the conclusion that there is nothing on the market that can compare with TalentLMS with the wide functionality offered at a very economical price. Since we develop our training modules in a 3rd party application we were very happy to see that after importing it into TalentLMS with SCORM the training modules looked exactly as we created them (after applying some functionality offered by TalentLMS). Then we had the further advantage of adding modules and tests with TalentLMS which were noy really available with the 3rd party software.

Cons

There was a little confusion between the administrator/lecturer screens and the one that the students would see. But this was sorted out quickly.

Very quick to learn how to use

All the features I was looking for - discussions, social sign on, branches, scorm capability, ecommerce, course ratings, messaging, unlimited administrators, licensing that allows me to start small.

Pros

I love the detailed knowledgebase. Anything I wanted to know, the knowledgebase had information about.

Cons

While the discussion feature is great, I would love to have a discussion forum, instead of just single questions and then answers.

It's a great platform and ticks all the boxes for an ideal e-learning platform.

Pros

I chose TalentLMS after evaluating about a dozen alternatives. More than half of them were ruled out either because they were too expensive without anything to justify the extravagant price or because they required you to fill out a form just to get a product demo and pricing. Among the affordable options, I had to struggle with even the sign-up process with a few and hence they went out of reckoning too. Frustrated, I tried TalentLMS willy nilly because it offered in free plan what some of the marquee names don't even in their pricey plans (e.g. custom domain mapping) and it was so easy to use, I just got drawn deeper and addicted to it in first two days and had no reason to look back. Customer support is among the best I've experienced not just among cloud applications but among all products and service categories I've ever used.

Cons

I have no control over my content's visibility to SEO. I would have liked to have at least my sample units and courses SEO-optimized. TalentLMS seems to advise us to start a blog in order to promote our courses which is understandable but if it allowed our already-created content to be blogged somehow, that would avoid duplicity of effort. Secondly, I can't export my e-learning content in SCORM-compatible format.
