Timesaving/Easy to use and expert advice

From the beginning, nimble and the staff that work here are 100% helpful and never to busy to answer any questions. The use and training of how to implement and design your eLearning is fast and efficient. These guys understand the need to save time and that time is a valuable commodity.

Pros

This software has helped save me so much time to pull together relevant e-learning packages for our organisation. Easy to amend, storyboard and see the finished article. Effortless to upload assets and unlimited assets to chose from too within the nimble library. What would have taken me a week to design using other software has taken me 3.5 hours to design and publish my first course. Thanks :-)

Cons

Font colours/design would be good but it is not the end of the world. I know this is being looked into so happy to use this when implemented.

Reasons for Choosing Nimble Author 2

The Staff and knowledge the guys have put into getting to know us as an organisation. This goes along way to building a partnership and to make sure we are both fully aligned in the vision we and nimble have for the product we are using. The feedback and extra help in setting up the system for me to use has been amazing and would recommend that nimble show be one of the first choices when considering E-learning for any size organisation.

Nimble Author is a fantastic tool that makes creating courses super-easy!

Since implementation we now have 60+ different courses available and have over 16000 courses completed by individual colleagues. 93% of our workforce have logged on and completed at least one course. The feedback from our colleagues, is that they find the system very easy to use and the courses interesting and engaging and we have many requests for future course ideas.

Pros

The Nimble Author software is simple to use and it allows us to create our own bespoke course content very quickly, something that was extremely important to SATCoL and one of the main reasons why we decided to partner with Nimble. Author links with the LMS seamlessly. The LMS allows us to produce useful both ‘at a glance’ and comprehensive reports on learner progress and course analytics. The help and support provided by the team at Nimble is excellent and there is always someone on hand to help you.

Cons

I have put in a request for an interaction that quizzes a learner on something they have observed in an interaction that disappears after a few moments - to see what they remember.

Reasons for Choosing Nimble Author 2

The team at Nimble have always been very supportive, professional and patient! I still believe in the old adage that ‘people buy people first’ and the fact that [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was so personable, friendly and not in any way ‘pushy’ to get our business, impressed me. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has been very supportive and helpful from the first day that we met. She is very knowledgeable and has taken the time to understand how we work as a business and then translate that into helping us configure our LMS in a way that works for us. On the times we have had to contact support, both [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] have been very helpful and have been able to answer and solve any queries that we may have had.

Not so Nimble in Technology

It's cheap and you get what you pay for. This is useful if you're on a tight budget but any credible institution shouldn't bother.

Pros

There's a free trial. The pricing is agile and very scalable, not to mention affordable, a great attraction for smaller companies

Cons

The course creator still uses Flash player, which is not something that should be happening in 2020. Functionality within the course authoring tool is also severely limited.

Hello Yannick, thanks for your feedback. In December 2020, we completely moved away from Flash. Our Nimble Author 2 tool is completely different now in both functionality and look/feel. Perhaps you'd like to try it again? We'd love it if you would. Many thanks!

Great for building your own course over time.

Nimble Elearning has proved an ideal solution for me, allowing to build an attractive course, including a final assessment with a certificate being awarded to successful learners. They are also a great company to work with - always very responsive and helpful.

Pros

Something great about Nimble E-Learning is that you don't have to pay anything to access the system in order to build your course. You can take weeks or even months to get it right without having to pay a fee. You only start to pay when you enrol learners. In the UK this is about £6.50 per learner per course, which is fine for me because I charge £95 to the learner. There is a single annual fee option if you build and manage a large number of courses but this is not relevant to me.

Cons

There are no significant options with regard to type of font, font size, or font colour which is a bit disappointing. But it's possible to brighten every page with colour photographs.

Thanks for your review Paul! We're really pleased you are enjoying using Nimble. We've created Nimble Author 2 with robust learning design built-in so as not to distract from the learning, however, in the future we will be offering themes, which will give greater flexibility in terms of colours/fonts etc. Your Customer Success Manager will let you know when this is available.

Nimble Author 2 review

Excellent, we love it. It is easy to use which allows us to develop courses that are of a higher quality that those we could buy.

Pros

This software allows us to produve high quality, visual courses that enhance the learning experience. We put a high value on interactive content but also like our courses to be visually appealing when text is shown. Nimble 2 allows this.

Cons

As you are using a set piece of softeware it doesnt allow you to do somethings (for example timed page views) that other software does.

Reasons for Choosing Nimble Author 2

It allowed us to concentrate on authoring the courses not on becoming programmers.
