Pros: Portability of user information when an employee leaves the organization
Draws on many different learning providers, a lot of which are free
They are constantly evolving their product

Cons: You have to house your course files (SharePoint, DropBox, or a server) and point Degreed to it. Degreed does not house any course data.

Overall: Site sources free or for fee learning on the web. You can think of it as the Pintrest of Learning. Individuals can sign up for free or organizations can host a site for a fee. Employees take their learning profiles with them when they leave employment. Employers can post their own internal training as well. Beware that Degreed only points to a course file, they don't house it. You need SharePoint or a Dropbox that is accessible for employees to access the actual course files.

Overall, Degreed has been a great solution for us to provide training resources as well as deliver our own proprietary internal training.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is a good alternative to a traditional Learning Management System. It puts employees in control of their continuous learning and development.

Best way to find, access and track ALL learning!

Pros: I like how Degreed curates current and relevant content from both the web as well as proprietary content that it is linked to.

I love the ability to save articles, videos, etc. for later and go back to them when I can...and have them all in one place.

I appreciate the ability to track all learning and not just that which is "traditional" and getting credit for the books I read, conferences I attend, webinars I participate in, etc.

As a learning leader, I find tremendous value in being able to create groups, pathways and goals and then recommending learning content to those who I feel would benefit from it the most.

I like the co-branding so that our employees know that Degreed is not a third party, but rather a partner.

The more I use Degreed, the "smarter" it is. I receive daily emails with recommended learning based on what I have consumed, who I am following, what I have saved for later, etc. Very cool!

Cons: The lack of a fully developed native app and the reporting are lacking. I would like the same experience on my mobile device as I have on my laptop. I would also like the ability to pull/download and create dynamic reports as well as allow others to do so w/o full admin access.

Overall: When I realized that our LMS was not utilized, I began researching options. I had heard from Degreed right when they appeared on the scene, but the timing wasn't right. Once the LMS contract was nearing expiration and seeing low usage, I reached out to Degreed and eventually implemented about 1000 licenses at my organization to pilot the system and show the proof of concept to my leadership team.

I first rolled it out to our top 20 executives and created pathways, goals, etc. for the group. I showed the team all the great content formerly on our LMS that I added to the platform as well as links to books, articles and videos we shared as an exec team. The group was won-over and I then rolled it out to our next level of senior leadership, about 250 leaders from across the globe. My colleague facilitated a few webinars on how to access Degreed and we created a group so we could recommend content as well as track usage. The majority of the new users took to the system quickly and positively. Since that group of leaders also participates in our annual Leadership Summit in the spring, I created a pathway that served as pre-work for the gathering. I leveraged the healthy competition we have in our organization. Degreed sponsored a booth at our summit, so Our Client Success Director joined and heard all the rave reviews of the system.

Since then, we have added a few other groups and are experimenting with getting the most usage from employees at every level in the organization. We are about to propose adding more licenses earlier than anticipated since the word is out and people across the company are asking for Degreed!!

Recommendations to other buyers: As Degreed continues to make improvements and focuses on building partnerships with content providers, they will become the biggest player in the learning space.
