Easy to use compared to other LMS's

Pros

The user interface is very well designed and personal
The Admin console

Cons

Creating a new course is time consuming:
- Having to create first the parent course, then having to create a lesson, then finally creating an event in order to publish the course to users.

Can't find a way to create an ADHOC course:

We sometimes have to conduct ADHOC At Desk Training, and it would be great if we had a quick way of capturing this as a training event, with the choice of sending the event to the user as a diary apt prior to their at desk training appointment or sometimes we run the at desk training session with the user and we'd like to then have the ability of recording the training took place without a appointment going to the users,

The last LMS I used (Commelius Solutions - ALTO) we could do this. We created a course called ADHOC that was not published to our users. Anytime we ran an At Desk Training session, we created an event against the ADHOC course. We had the ability of changing the course title from ADHOC to whatever the at desk training was about. We also had the ability to change the event timings to fit the At Desk Training situation, but the best bit was we were able to supress the course confirmation going out to the user if this was required.

It would be great if Kallidus LMS could do something similar in the future.

Kallidus Learn has increased staff learning engagement

We wanted to provide our staff spread across multiple countries, with a one-stop shop on-line training experience that made learning and development effective and efficient. We also wanted to appeal to all different types of learning styles and ensure that our learning content was consistent across all jurisdictions. Our stats show that Kallidus Learn has increased staff learning engagement.

Pros

Simplicity of the dashboard makes it easy for staff who may be new to LMS learning, to navigate their way around.
As an administrator with limited IT skills, uploading e-learning courses, PDF articles, training videos and creating course booking events is very straightforward.
Staff can record and update externally accrued CPD hours while internal hours are automatically recorded.
For compliance and other mandatory training, managers can view team training records and send timely reminders if a team member hasn't met a prescribed deadline.

Cons

Creating reports is not as intuitive and could do with a 'dummies' guide.
The dashboard does not provide information about forthcoming course dates if someone is looking to plan their diary ahead.

Kallidus Learn - Easy to use and Easy on the eye

We have been using Kallidus Learn for a little under a year and it has been a consistent system that has improved the training administration for the firm and give people easy access to their training. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an LMS

Pros

The aesthetic of Learn is very simple and easy to use, however it is engaging for the user. There is very minimal user training needed to use the system because it is easy to use.
From an administrative side it is easy to understand how to set up training and the training provided by Kallidus is really good. It covers all topics you would need to run the LMS and the trainer is helpful and happy to tailor the training to our needs.

Cons

Overall it is a great system but there are a few kinks with it, for example the emails that go out from the system. It can be hard to find where to stop these as they are in multiple places in the admin tool, once you know it is not a big problem but you will probably need help from their customer support to find this.

Review of Kallidus Suite

It's taken me quite a while to get used to compared to other Learning Management Systems I have previously used. The new version is great though and there are some great features on it which have made the helping colleagues a lot more easier.

Pros

I like the overall feel of the new Kallidus suite especially the search function. I also love the impersonate function, it's a great way to see what colleagues are seeing.

Cons

I don't like that you can't rename lesson titles whilst you are making the course. The general look and feel of the back end is quite clunky and could be a lot easier to use. When migrating our platform there was a lot of courses that didn't work correctly just because it wasn't selected to open in a new window and in other instances, the course opening in a new window caused it not track correctly.

HR manager

I found Kallidus fine to navigate as a user and enjoyed the simplicity. However I found it lacked a few features that would make training design and implementation easier to do.

Pros

I liked the front end view of the site. It is easy for colleagues to see what learning is outstanding and click through to the training. The platform is simple enough to allow colleagues who may not be as computer literate to navigate lessons and book courses.

Cons

I found it difficult to run reports using the reports feature.

We needed a feature that enables managers to easily verify face to face training.

I wanted to add descriptions of classroom training into the tiles rather that at the top of the course page.

Great for rapidly growing businesses

I would recommend Learn to any small and growing businesses.

Pros

It's really easy to use, the amount of internal support issues that we have had have been limited, and Kallidus are always at the end of the phone or email to support us going forward. It really does what we need it to do, get into the system, easily find our learning and at the back end report on the key areas of compliance. Some of the other providers that we looked at have basic reports, Kallidus Learn can report on anything. It's simplified our lives and is making our staff more effective through the ease of use.

Kallidus Learn

Pros

The capability of reporting is very useful. The way I look at it, the reporting function is similar to Microsoft Excel, yet has the information of our system ready to utilise and amend in any way that fits the needs of our users who request e-Learning reports.

Cons

It can take a while to understand the architecture of the system and how it all works together, but for simple, standard usage it meets all expectations.

High quality LMS

Kallidus Learn provides a "one stop shop" platform for our staff learning and development requirements. Learners can take complete control of their personal development and managers have oversight of their teams through the intuitive dashboard reporting.

Pros

The interface is slick and very easy to use.

Cons

To date, the software does everything that we need it to do.

My Learn

Kallidus is great for mobile users on all devices. Very user friendly so we didn't have to undertake a lot of training for end users. Very easy to upload content. The support staff are very helpful and responsive.

Pros

User friendly and easy to navigate. Good look and feel with easy to view dashboards.

Cons

Back end administration site is not very intuitive. Quite long winded to get things set up initially.
