Comments: Edvance 360 provided us with the resources needed to build our very first online university. Their ongoing assistance and support continue to be excellent. We have never experienced any technical issues and we are extremely pleased with our choice of Edvance 360. If you are looking for an LMS that provides quality and value, then this is the best choice for you.

Pros: It is very easy to navigate and build courses from the Admin side. The support team and creative team at Edvance 360 are wonderful to work with.

Cons: I wish that we could build out courses and lessons that didn't require so many steps for the user to get to the desired content.

Comments: Edvance360 has been a great transition for our school. The faculty and students have all adapted well and been able to use the system successfully. There are a couple of features that would be welcome additions but we've been able to work around and find solutions for things that we've needed.

Pros: Easy to use, allows for various levels of admin/user permissions, simple for students.

Cons: Set up can be time consuming for Gradebooks, files are all download only vs view in a new window/tab, we've had various issues with test functions.

Recommendations to other buyers: Test full courses from start to end to see where there might be gaps from both a faculty perspective and student prospective.

Customer support is top notch!

Comments: We use Edvance360 for a Student Ambassador training program, and it definitely helps us to relay all the necessary information to students across the country. While we are still learning the in's and out's of the platform, it definitely has all the capabilities we need and even more so. We hope to take advantage of more of its features in the future.

Pros: simplicity, amount of features, versatility

Cons: its navigation gets a bit confusing

Recommendations to other buyers: definitely work out the kinks of new versions before sharing with clients (we have run into many!). Also, some of the links are a bit repetitive (i.e. Resources at the top of the page and Resources inside a training program).

Comments: As a veteran teacher (high school and university level) I have worked with several leading LMS platforms over the years. While I have found them helpful, organizational, they have consistently been a turn-off for students (and me), often confusing and impersonal, a dark cloud in my classroom.
Finally, e360 was a breath of fresh air! After a year of working closely with e360¿s LMS software, It is clear that they blow the competition away. Their student interfaces are simple, intuitive and highly customization. The back-end is robust and well-organized. Perhaps most importantly, the help team was outstandingly responsive and knowledgeable¿Always! Not once was I stuck with technical questions and tasks! I have nothing but superlatives for this outstanding software and the friendly, professional team that stands behind it. If you are looking for the best LMS, look no further than e360!

Comments: Administering our tests using Edvance360 has really improved our ability to assess the reliability and validity of our nursing examinations. We have been able to provide nursing courses in a blended format which has helped to prepare our graduates for RN to BSN education which is primarily provided online. Edvance360 is easy to navigate which has helped when we are faced with student generational issues.

Thank you Raymond! For giving us such high ratings. We appreciate it. A quick note regarding your comment regarding customization for end use: we find that most clients do not have to do a lot of customization - CareerMinds had a very distinct user base, highly unique needs, and a desire for your very own custom LMS interface (which looks amazing, by the way!). Your situation is definitely unique.

Edvance360 is a powerful, adaptive Learning Management System.

It's easy to learn and use, offers flexibility for different kinds of use, and is backed by a support team that is second to none. As a corporate training client, we need something that met the individual needs of all of our customers. Edvance360 gave us that. In addition to the features of the learning management system, it also has a built in secure social network ideal for clients with HIPAA considerations.

Comments: This system allows us to do quite a bit and Edvance has been incredibly supportive in helping us to get going with our courses. It takes a little effort to learn to navigate easily and to set things up properly, but it is well worth the effort. The entire platform can help you do so much to build powerful courses with an interactive learning experience. You just need to take the learning curve into account for yourself and your students. Once they get going you'll find things work easily whether it is self-paced learning or team based learning, video tutorials or traditional reading + testing. The system allows design for the learner and the material in mind.

Comments: Pros: Absolutely superb customer service (Susie).

Cons: Please consider the following as possibly due to our inexperience and inability to voice our needs in terms that Edvance understands

We need to provide certain controls to clients (users) and those are part of the highest level of administrative control - we are unwilling to provide that control to clients and, therefore, must retain people to do tasks such as enrollment

Please, there is no need to send a gift card - Susie is gift enough for us.

Comments: When Valor Christian College launched its online program we researched the best Learning Management System for our needs. Having developed courses and teaching online for several institutions, I was very familiar with the leading delivery platforms for education. Edvance360 not only delivered the same components necessary to provide a quality online course, they did it at a much lower cost, and with personalized, friendly attention to Valor¿s specific needs. I would not consider using another LMS.

Comments: As a business owner, I reviewed several LMS products and met with teams of experts who demonstrated their products for my need to publish Project Management course content for secondary-level students and school districts. Edvance360, by far, exceeded my expectations and needs. They offered an easy-to-use tool for loading my courseware, setting up a grade book, and adding quizzes and tests. Their LMS framework helped to organize the materials, allowing students to access only what they needed, and provided teachers with the flexibility to customize the lesson plans as needed. It's a one-stop shop for online courseware and the students love it! My customers, the teachers, are surprised how easy it is to learn and use, and give it a thumbs-up all the way around! We love our Edvance360 tool! Thank you!

Comments: We chose Edvance360 as the platform for TypeWell's continuing education program because it offers group discussion and other co-learning features. After our first pilot class in Fall 2014, some of the users reported that the discussion forums were a bit difficult to navigate (i.e., it was challenging to quickly see which posts were unread, and which comments applied to which posts in the "threaded" view).

The training we received was thorough, but this is our first time implementing new courses in an LMS, and it has not been 100% clear how to make our vision a reality. That's due to our lack of experience, and not the platform itself.

One of our most important needs is to have quick and reliable customer service. We have had excellent email customer service from Edvance360's team. They've answered our questions clearly, thoroughly, and quickly. When we are confused about how a feature works, or how to accomplish a task, they take time to fully understand the question so they can offer appropriate solutions.

So far, we're pleased with the system overall. We don't really have anything to compare it to, but we're looking forward to the next version that Edvance360 plans to release.

Comments: Edvance360's Learning Management System is truly a state of the art system. Before finding Edvance360, our company had tried 4 other Learning Management Systems that were both cumbersome and confusing for our end-users, could not deliver our product satisfactorily to our customers and were not cost effective. Then we discovered Edvance306, and we have been extremely pleased with all aspects of their management system. The program, while not totally intuitive, is easy to learn and understand. The training program is the most outstanding and most thorough that we've encountered. Technical support is prompt with responses and "fixes" and open to considering suggestions and alternatives that have enhanced the delivery to our end users.
If you are looking for the best in the Learning Management Industry, I strongly suggest you look no further than Edvance360.

Comments: Overall Edvance360 Pros:
Employees of Edvance 360 have been supportive in the success of my training and continuing education programs.

Overall Edvance360 Cons:
Slow response turnaround on the eCommerce support area.

Overall Edvance360 Impression:
I am very pleased with the support and responses from employees and the entire setup of the program. I would strongly recommend this program to others.

Ease of Use Pros:
I love the ability to clone courses and share courses between users. I am able to keep track of course statistics easily. As part of my CE providership accreditation, I am required to keep track of my students. Edvance360 has made this extremely easy! Participants are able to complete the training and print their certificate of completion without intervention on my part. This allows me to focus my attention and energy on other programs.

Ease of Use Cons:
Any problems I have experienced were the result of my inexperience in the development of online training programs.

Ease of Use Overall Impression:
I am very satisfied with Edvance360. The program is easy to use, even for novices (like me). Any time I had difficulties, staff stayed with me until I had my program set up the way I had envisioned.

Customer Service Pros:
Same day, usually only a few hours, response to questions. In the technical support department, Kate Underwood has gone above and beyond to ensure that questions regarding my training program are answered. Recently, I had difficulty uploading some files. Kate took the time to upload the file and I had it attached and ready for use the same day. The turnaround time for technical support is amazing compared to other companies I have used.

Customer Service Cons:
Up to this time, I have not experienced a negative episode in the customer service arena.

Overall Impression of Customer Service:
Excellent.

Comments: I really can't say enough about the customer service Edvance360 gives. It is always prompt, always helpful and they always follow through on what they say they will do as well as following up to ensure that the solution worked.

The LMS is robust and yet easy to work with. Training is thorough and on-going if you have a need. New faculty can watch the recorded instruction that was created on our site so it looks and feels "right". Students quickly learn to navigate and utilize the system. We were able to roll out several courses between May and September and now are implementing our first MOOC (Massive Open Online Course -- ours is actually a SMOOC -- Small Massive Open Online Course :) ) Edvance360 has been very supportive in this endeavour and we would not have been able to accomplish all this without their great work and "can-do" attitude.

Their cost structure is very reasonable and they are fair in the way they count users -- pro-rating incremental growth and not counting inactive accounts.

We tried Moodle and others, but found Edvance360 to be the right LMS solution for us.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Comments: When I was Coordinator of Instructional Technology at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary, we chose Edvance360 over a dozen other options because of its cost-effectiveness, its user-friendliness, and its excellent and prompt customer service.

When I became Director of Distance Learning at Holy Apostles College & Seminary and began pursuing the use of Massive Open Online Courses for the advancement of our institutional mission, it was to Edvance360 that I turned as my LMS provider. Edvance360 has consistently proven itself to be a reliable, robust, and versatile system in responding to the variety of needs of my MOOC faculty and students.

Of course, it's not just that the product is good - what makes it excellent is the support that the staff at Edvance360 provide. I've never known another LMS provider whose top management takes such a sincere interest in resolving even the most minute problem or question. Whenever a faculty member has a difficulty with the control panel, which is rarely anything more than an error on his or her part, the situation gets satisfactorily resolved that day, often within an hour. I never knew the more popular brand names in LMSs to be that quick and thorough.

One final thought - Edvance360 has earned a special blessing from the Catholic Church for the work it has done to advance its mission of evangelization. Pope John Paul II wrote at the end of his 36th World Communications Day speech, "I dare to summon the whole Church bravely to cross this new threshold, to put out into the deep of the Net, so that now as in the past the great engagement of the Gospel and culture may show to the world 'the glory of God on the face of Christ' (2 Cor 4:6). May the Lord bless all those who work for this aim." In helping Holy Apostles College & Seminary do that very thing, Edvance360 has demonstrated that it is part of this summons and is fulfilling its function as a gift from Christ.

Comments: For us, the most important thing that contributes to our success is the learner experience. Learners are our core business and we know if we keep them happy then they stay with us. An LMS has a great impact on this. We have been with Edvance360 for four years now and in all that time, not once have we ever had a student say something negative about the online classroom. In fact, the response is quite the opposite. They are excited about the interactivity it allows with other students and teachers. The very best reviews come from students that have taken online courses at other places. Reviews like 'incomparable' and 'not in the same league' are the most common feedback we get from students that know how clunky an LMS could actually be.
