You can start working with TalentLMS in 30'' and you can create your courses by reusing any available material like Videos, Presentations, Documents or Scorm/TinCan files.

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.

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

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.

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

TALENTLMS is a combination of simplicity and genius. We found it great, had no doubts about using.

Pros: Simplicity and user friendly environment, possibility to add content in different formats, simple administration no special skills are needed to work with the software.

When logged in, one can find a lot of methodological information on how to work and how to create training programs, which really facilitates the work. Although at the very beginning it seemed like we can create a training program quickly (in 2 months) ourselves, but the first program, which will be soon tested and presented on the Lithuanian market, took us half a year. It turned out that the methodological recommendations provided by Talent LMS are relevant and useful.

We still did not try many things on the system (e.g. reports, massive user registration, gamification and other great tools), but we know that we will find the guidance on how to work with them in the recommendations.



From the technical side the management of the system is very simple, there is no need for any special IT knowledge what is huge advantage.

Cons: The majority of our clients read and write in Lithuanian. We have noticed that Talent LMS system language in web browsers is Lithuanian but in other devices, e.g. IPad and phones, it works in English only.



Hopefully it is just a temporary challenge until we have the Lithuanian language on all devices. Since this is our first online training program, we are still learning many things and it is hard to make key observations.



For example, we are currently thinking how to register 200 users at once into one training program if a client provides a list of student contacts. Not all of our clients will be able to register themselves on-line, therefore we will have to do this ourselves. Of course, we found an excel document on how to include students, but we haven`t tried it yet.



Also, before we start, another issue of concern is the protection of personal data in accordance with EU directives. We will have to prepare legal descriptions by ourselves and give them for students to sign so as not to violate the EU law. It would be very helpful if we could get help from Talent LMS for such legal issues. This help could include the prepared and validated descriptions that must be automatically signed by the student who joins the system.



We work with a variety of systems, such as ProsperWorks. It has a convenient integration with G-Suite. Maybe in the future something similar could be done with Talent LMS.

Pros: Let's start with the cost- easily the highest featured for the money LMS out there.

We went with Moodle and really tried to make it work for quite some time. We were on the verge of hiring a Moodle expert to help us take the project live, but instead took one last look at the market. TalentLMS hits the sweet spot between self-hosting a Moodle site for free and paying a lot of money for a high-end LMS.

We wanted an LMS that offered content creation built in, and not in a clunky fashion, but in an intuitive, well designed way. TalentLMS offers this. We also use Wix pages and embed them to produce the content we like.

We wanted to create Branches for each of our centres in order to track compliance and learning scores per centre. TalentLMS offers this.

We wanted easy gamification and a feeling that this is 'fun'. The feedback from our test group was amazing- they loved it and it just works.

We wanted to host it originally, but TalentLMS allows us to map the domains and use our own URLs while still allowing all updates and content to be handled remotely on their servers. Brilliant!

You can customise your LMS- we installed live web-chat functions to help our users. All colours and logos can be personalised. Great!

In reality- how different is every LMS from each other? Talent works for us as its a fantastic price point and ticks all the boxes we need! It's cheap enough for you to try it (free at first!) and decide for yourself. We haven't regretted our decision once.

Cons: The only think I marked down was the Customer Support, but only because I would like something like a live webchat function for admins.

It's perhaps a bit unfair as they have a ticketing function that allows users to create tickets for issues and they respond to you really quickly (less than 30mins in my experience).

However, at the start of our implementation, I'd like to talk to somebody in real-time about issues and problems, so this is the only thing I would change. Using a system like Tawk.to (free!) would have been an idea for them.

We've actually installed Tawk.to on our version of TalentLMS and it's great for our users.

Overall: Collaboration with senior staff and trainers.

Buy-in from all levels of the team.

Compliance and understanding of our Standing Instructions.

Review and re-writing of procedures.

It goes on and on!

Hi Mark,

We're thrilled to hear that TalentLMS is such a great fit for your training needs! Our support response time is a metric we are constantly improving and it's great to hear that you've been receiving responses so quickly!

Having said that, the quality of our responses is just as important. This is why we've chosen to go with a ticketing system since questions can be answered by the most suitable person on the team --something we wouldn't be able to do with a chat system.

However, we haven't ruled out the possibility to provide chat support, it is something that we will definitely consider in the future!

Thanks again for your feedback! It really helps us improve!

Pros: Great design.

Powerful LMS administration tools...easily accessible.

Intuitive for the learner, instructor and administrator.

Highly customizable, with branches that can be branded for teams, departments or even different products. Easy to replicate learning objects for different users.

Personalization for system and course communication.

Responsive support.

Great culture.

Cons: One of their strengths is a weakness. The platform is cloud-based so updates are easy and keep the platform working effectively with little or no administrative intervention. But some of the updates can affect third party integrations. When updates come through, administrators should be informed of potential incompatibilities and plan for the update. I am confident that updates will be done with advanced notice in the future. They are responsive to feedback too!

One more thing, I wish it could read my mind.

Overall: From the moment I began to investigate TalentLMS I knew this was a fresh approach to an age old problem: How to motivate employees to compete with themselves. The platform is simple and powerful. Reliable and refreshing. It's my favorite and I've seen way too many learning platforms. It's built on an engine, but it has the flexibility a good instructional designer needs to customize the learning experience. Mobile friendly and robust. Great detailed and customizable reporting...and badges and progress infographics. I could go on, but I gush. I'm just a client, but I feel part of this great team. The best.

Recommendations to other buyers: Start small and develop based on your needs. This platform could be implemented in a few departments, them expanded to an enterprise solution. No downside!

Pros: We recently implemented TalentLMS and launched with support for our sales staff. It was extremely easy to get going and do small tests with. Because of the pricing structure, it's very easy and affordable to scale. The platform is user friendly for our staff, and because of the many import options, it's easy to get large amounts of existing training material imported very quickly. Course progress can be tracked along with user activity and lots of other items that can be reported on. Although we don't sell any courses, it does have ecommerce options. There are also options for portal security if you want to make it an internal-only platform. Because the course making and importing functionality is so simple, it is easy to give access to "instructors" even if they are not familiar with LMS software and enable them to create courses and tests. The portal can be customized to fit with your company branding as well. Other features are messaging, discussion boards, event calendars, conferences, and portal announcements. In summary, TalentLMS's pricing model makes it easy and affordable to bring your entire staff onto the platform, whether you have 50 employees or 5000, and its ease of use and importing options make getting your course catalog and user base online fast.

Cons: I suppose it would be nice to have more test options than multiple choice, matching, ordering, and free text, as well as more extensive UI customization, but what is there gets the job done.

Overall: Before going to TalentLMS, our training process was all done using paper tests and big binders. Certification exams had to be individually graded by managers like a high school. This was about as time and resource inefficient a process as you can imagine. Now that we are putting our material on TalentLMS, we've been able to save time for the managers and make it easier to keep all of our staff up to date on current information and new practices. This has been a win-win all around for our organization. The managers have more time, are able to more effectively facilitate ongoing training and coaching, ensure the staff is properly trained, and monitor progress. The staff has access to more engaging ways of learning (like videos), can review it at any time, and can access additional materials that may not be "mandatory" for their own improvement.

Pros: While we're still in the development stages of our implementation of TalentLMS (internal development use only), we have had an exceptional experience thus far. The LMS is very easy to use and become familiar with, and it has many of the features we were looking for, and even some we did not have on our radar but we were pleasantly surprised by. Many well-known alternatives have less functionality for significantly greater cost; we were cautious when first assessing TalentLMS due to it being such an outlier in these areas, but have been nothing but pleased thus far. When we asked for a reference, we heard similar positive remarks from another large implementation in terms of reliability and performance. We look forward to completing our development and fully taking advantage of our TalentLMS implementation.

Cons: While the few times we have reached out to support we have received prompt replies, it would be preferred to have a direct phone number to call for support for pressing issues. Furthermore, there have been some "quirks" in terms of the specific order of operations to completing certain tasks, though you get used to them relatively quickly (e.g. when adding a bulk number of courses, some settings are imported through one method, but other actions must be done through another method). These are not showstoppers, but they are something to get used to.

Hi Nick,

Thank you for taking the time to review TalentLMS and thanks for the great feedback!

Regarding phone support, we've rather opted for a ticket based support system for many different reasons that we've elaborated here: https://www.talentlms.com/blog/offer-phone-support/.

Our average response time is 4.3 hours and this is a metric we constantly strive to improve, and when it comes to emergency matters, we manage those separately.

The platforms' UX is also an area we're continuously improving and we'll be following up with you to hear more on how you think these actions could be done even more efficiently.

Thanks again!

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.

Overall: Improve the virtual experience and learning

We are big fans of TalentLMS; it is consistant and reliable.

Pros: Their Customer Support team is AMAZING, always will to help, accurate response and will do their outmost to accomodate you.

Cons: 1. The restrictions on plans: we have lost many opportunities when offering TalentLMS to end users because the plans do not accomodate their. As an average, a middle size company in Perú has about 300-350 employees and they do not want to play for a 500 uses plan.

2. We are constantly requested the ability to download all certifications in bulk, the fact that this is not possible creates problems.

3. Customer support opening times are focussed on Europe, but customers in latin american have to wait for several hours for a response.

Pros: Unlimited branches, unlimited courses, simple tiered pricing model based upon Users. Great for 95% of most LMS needs. Only had one glitch in 2 years, fixed in 24 hours....amazingly reliable. Friendly support, but their online support database of common items has addressed nearly everything I needed, which is a lot, as I manage over 1300 Users across 4 branches. I would recommend them to anyone looking to get into the LMS management world. Very happy I found them.

Cons: I'd like a little more customization capability beyond CSS and JavaScript. Like Widgets and drag and drop capability to make pages more unique. Also, group function does not appear to work as intended....cannot separate who sees a course by their User Group and requires us to create an entirely new branch, which is not cost effective. I'd also like additional category capability.

Overall: It enabled me to start and build my business. Very grateful.

An Easier, Better Supported LMS

Apr 28, 2015
5/5
Overall

Ease of Use
5 / 5
Customer Support

Comments: The Overview: I was charged with rolling out e-learning to our clients who use our software to run their restaurants, and I had no one but myself to support the effort. After months of intense research, I chose TalentLMS.

The Pros: TalentLMS is simple to set up, and it's easy to create a private learning environment for each of our clients. Posting courses is a breeze, and it¿s simple to set a default "Group" for each of our clients, so whenever they add a user, the user sees all the courses they've been assigned, in the order in which they are supposed to take them. Along with the super-simple account self-registration for each learner, it means I get basically zero support calls despite having over 2,000 novice users! Finally, TalentLMS has amazing support; turnaround time is always within a day. I've had only a couple of instances where the system was doing something funky, but they've always fixed it immediately.

The Cons: First, there are no big cons, like the system crashing or impossibly complicated course posting and management. But there are a few things that the system doesn't do that I wish it did: make it possible to allow client admins to assign some or all of my courses to their students WITHOUT giving the client admin the ability to post their own courses to my LMS; make it easier to see which branch each user is in when I run reports across multiple branches (handy for seeing which of our clients is making good use of the system); let me create an admin role for my co-workers who manage our clients' accounts, that would allow them to designate "Branch Admins" within those accounts - currently only I can do that. These things may be fixed shortly, as the software just keeps getting better.

One more Pro: TalentLMS' pricing is extraordinary. It's reasonable on a registered-user basis, and they also make it easy to switch to an "Active User" plan (based on the number of unique visitors in month). And if I expect a bump in activity for a month, (due to a new client coming on), I can bump up a level for that month, and pay the difference... it's basically "responsive pricing"... and they actually warn me when I'm about to need to do that!

Great product, real world savings, and incredible support. I chose wisely!

Pros: Stable and fast platform, easy to use for learners and easy to configure for the administrator and teachers.

Great variety of supported formats and quality in HTML5 conversion of documents.

Group management makes it possible to automate most of the registrations and line crossings even in very dynamic realities such as the pharmaceutical market we are dealing with.

The ability to customize the templete by inserting CSS and JS allows the creation of "intelligent" activities that communicate with other services allowing to manage advanced gamification and interactive activities.

The modular cost is also suitable for small installations

Cons: There is no reporting that collects excel activities inside a course even if in the teacher interface these data are there.

The mobile app is very convenient for the offline function but notifications and the ability to manage files to download are missing.

Overall: A comfortable and efficient management of the training

Pros: First and foremost, The tech support team is great! Along with this, the system is very easy to use with minimum training required and also easy to set up. It¿s Cloud based, letting you deploy an eLearning portal in seconds. It is customizable, allowing you to customize according to your branding requirements. It has a minimalistic interface that lets you focus on the content. It is very easy to use and create online learning modules. I have not needed any service up until now and honestly did no even need to take most of their modules to show me how to set up courses.

Cons: The active user/user count based subscription structure can feel a bit limiting at the lower subscription plans, but once you understand user groups and activating/deactivating users it's manageable. Also, I think It would be great if the software would send automatic reminders to staff who have not started/finished the training videos to reduce some of the manual labor.

Pros: Easy to use, clear, good design, optimized, versatile.

The big PROS goes for their support, my first question has been answered in 15 minutes, I ask the second on the evening, they came back to me the first hour of the next day.

Marios, from the support team, proved to be ultra effective at resolving my problem, even though at the end my questions were more related on my web hosting than on their service.

I've hardly ever seen a support team as involved as this one.

Back to the LMS, it offers almost every feature that you could imagine.

I've tried to set up a private moodle server at first but when you see how much quality and service you get for your money with talentlms, a free moodle server is out of consideration.

Cons: Well, nothing is perfect but I have to say that talentlms is very close.

If I had to find a cons I would say that sometimes the interface could be a little more customized, but they are already very good at this and no LMS will ever be fully customisable so..

I've spent hours comparing all the different LMS solution, free and paid, I've ended up with talentLMS and I don't regret it.

Overall: With talentLMS I was able to provide a professionnal LMS, fully compatible with all media content, able to support a fully corporate branded interface for my client.

Pros: The course builder is intuitive and allows us to present our courses in such a way that the graphics and layout are visually appealing. It's much faster to full build out than LMS options costing much more.

Cons: I would like a way to rearrange the course numbering and change course titles without needing to go into the edit screen.

Overall: We use the software to train our staff and keep our entire team up to date on the latest advances in our field. We also show TalentLMS to new employee prospects as a demonstration of our leadership in the industry and ability to advance their careers.

Hi Blaine, thanks for taking the time to review TalentLMS. We appreciate the lovely comments!

You can rearrange the order of courses by using the course code option - as for the titles, I'm afraid you can't do it without going into the edit screen for now, but it's something we will look into for the future updates :)

Many thanks again!

Pros: The flexibility of the system, for example you can create branches for several departments in your company, each with his own administrator. For example you can create your starting page that matches with your company style and colors.

The set-up of the system is very hands-on along with a big Help functionality and a very good support.

Want to explore the features of this LMS, you can do this for free and try most of the features so you can decide wether Talentlms meets your needs.

Cons: When you want a interface between this LMS and other g.e. HR platforms then you have to use API. Most things are possible then, but more and more platforms use LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability ) . It would be great that Talentlms could offer this possibility.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to review our product and share your thoughts with us.

Flexibility and scalability are two of TalentLMS¿ key features, and it¿s great to know that someone has made the most of our Branches functionality. As for offering an LTI integration, this is something that is currently being evaluated, please check here for any updates on this (http://support.talentlms.com/forums/162648-general/suggestions/12942828-create-an-lti-integration-for-talentlms). Meanwhile, our state-of-the-art REST API offers vast potential for integration and interoperability.

Thanks again for choosing our software.

TalentLMS is full-featured LMS ready for use in just few clicks. It really saved huge time for me.

Pros:

From the LMS perspective, TalentLMS is great. The features are well thought out. Configuration options are nice and bring many options for setting up the LMS.

The interface is quite user friendly and self intuitive. Where ever there is doubt the documentation is good enough to unblock.

I wrote couple of mails to support team as well. They are also very quick to resolve the queries.

Overall a good solution with good support.

Cons: It's not about the "like least". It's what can further be improved and made more easy.

Theme System-I feel that theme system is very restrictive and can further be improved. As one goes for adding more css and Javascript the load time for the pages (particularly home page) slows down.

It will be great if

- either custom home page (and few other pages) are picked up from some other location.

- or talentLMS pages are integrated in other websites

It will give good control over non-LMS pages and may be a good white-labeling feature.

Versioning/Recording the changes- Also it will be great if some kind of versioning or config change tracker is provided. As one works for configuring the system, old configurations are lost. It becomes difficult to keep track of what was changed.

Overall: TalentLMS saved huge time for me. Instead of implementing from scratch, I got ready to use LMS at reasonable price.

Pros: TalentLMS is a very easy platform to learn and manage; it's robust, stable and very intuitive for learners to quickly get up and running. The mobile apps for iOS and Android are also really good.

Cons: TalentLMS has a great search feature built into its platform, but the search results are limited to course titles or content that has already been completed by the learner. We use TalentLMS as a learning repository, so it would be ideal if our learners could search all of the content - not just the stuff they have already viewed. (We did speak to TalentLMS about this and it is on their radar for future development)

Overall: We're building our learning business around the TalentLMS software, so it has significant benefits for us.

Pros: Affordable. Customizable. Support responds very quickly. Security is very good. Mobile interface works well when transitioned from desktop. In-system quizzes make things easy. Reporting is very good. Does not force gamification. Free trial for as long as you want.

Cons: Upload limitations, Can be confusing to some user types. App does not support mobile SCORM , Some hiccups in the interface with older browsers. Not as feature rich as more expensive LMS options.

Overall: TalentLMS is a light, but powerful LMS for a very reasonable price. They offer a fully customizable interface, with some mobile supported options. Their in-system quiz reporting is good too. You can demo for free as long as you want and their support team is one of the best I have ever seen. They will help work you through any issue, even if you are not yet on a paid plan.

Comments: I've been using TalentLMS for several years now. I had been looking for the easiest LMS to use - both from a learner perspective and and admin perspective. TalentLMS delivers. The features I need are all there - gamification, TinCan, Mobile. It's an absolute pleasure to use and we've gotten great response from the learners.

Pros: - Super easy to use - Tons of features - Great support, quick response - So fast to build simple courses

Cons: - I need just a little more help uploading mobile Storyline courses

Recommendations to other buyers: Just use it. It's excellent.

Pros: I have been and instructor & practitioner for a long time and used many LMS systems. TalentLMS really understands the process from both sides of the experience. It was super easy to setup and get going (0 html skills needed). Courses uploaded with no problems and they were easy to organize. I can't say enough. From the learner side of things, I found the interface intuitive and easy to navigate to find the courses. All around great experience. I even have clients wanting me to set up a system for them :)

Cons: I would like to see expanded payment options, but they have an API where you can hire a contract coder to write something up for this to happen.

Overall: I can reach a wider customer base that can not travel for training. I can quickly edit modules and add them to the curriculum. Ease of use allows me to spend less time putting courses online and more time with customers.

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.

Pros: Ease of use, and just as you think you need a functionality, you find it on the Help and Support side, or it's been implemented recently.

Cons: I cannot specify accreditations to open on a certain date and time, and go inactive on a certain date/time

Overall: We have been using TalentLMS in the corporate for 2 years, it was a slow start with no elearning developers, our Instructors have been able to use the LMS and make fantastic learning programs. The ease of use has got the learner and instructors using the system without instructions, even though we provided them the system guides. We love it!

Recommendations to other buyers: The more one works on it, the more one learns.

Overall: TalentLMS is very easy to use and has great features. We are an equipment manufacturer and have different needs than colleges. The features included standard with TalentLMS meets our unique needs. It allows us to organize lessons in groups for assignment to customers. Lessons are presented to the customer neatly organized into labeled categories ready and waiting for our customers to take them in the order that they should be taken. I couldn't be happier.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do not overlook the ability to import courses via the built in import feature. You can create a spreadsheet with the courses you would like to create. Just remember before you can add content you must be enabled as an instructor for the course. Same technique can be used for creating Groups and Categories. Fantastic time saver.

Pros: The basic tutorials for using TalentLMS are great, creating content is pretty straightforward.

Our team is currently experimenting with how to best deliver content while keeping all of it visually and functionally consistent. Should we have video recordings? Use slide decks? Prezi? Something else? All of them in concert?

Having too many great options to choose from sits on a fine line between pro and con. But for me I love that Prezi is supported and that we have options to experiment with.

Cons: While I love the ability to upload custom certificates it took quite a bit a guessing and checking to get everything lined up properly. I repurposed a certificate PSD file we already had and would upload to TalentLMS, hit preview to see where the text-fields would be shown (like Name, Class Name, Date, etc) and then hop back to Photoshop to tweak. It took 4 or 5 back-and-forths before it was all perfectly lined up.

A custom certificate template would be stellar, showing where these fields will go so people like me can design around that. Despite having a preview open of a previous upload on a second monitor while I made adjustments, things weren't precise until a few revisions later. Some kind of template file - either a PNG, PSD, AI or PDF - would eliminate the need to eyeball things.

Overall: Organizing our mountain of classes and training material - previously just heaps of things in Google Drive with no formal way to test if the training was absorbed and understood. A platform such as this one makes everything so much easier to deliver to the end user (in our case, our own staff).

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.

The cleanest LMS interface around

Sep 12, 2014
5/5
Overall
4 / 5
Ease of Use
5 / 5
Customer Support

Comments: When my company decided to offer online training courses for some of our clients, we began researching all options. We looked into adding WordPress to our website and considered embedding our Camtasia videos there, but the setup and add-ons were expensive and time consuming.

So then we started researching already established online Learning Management Systems. Several were appealing, but seemed too complicated for what we needed. Others were just too expensive for what we wanted to begin with.

At that time, Talent LMS was just established. We looked into it, watched the tutorial videos, emailed support with questions, and played around on the free version of the system .

We decided to go with Talent LMS because the interface is clean but can be customized, to some extent. The videos are basic, but customer support is very responsive and even addresses suggestions for changes. The lowest level is free but even the next level up is reasonable - and the site allows for movement within the levels whenever the customer activity fluctuates.

The setup is simple and the reports generated are sufficient, and can be shared with supervisors of the students. Overall, Talent LMS was just what we needed.

There are a few cons, as in everything. The site is not American, so some of the spelling and syntax of the site comments are non-standard. The setup allows super-administrators to move around the site as administrators, instructors, or students. At times, it is difficult to remember which commands are under which role. A site map would be helpful in such cases.

Overall, however, Talent LMS meets our needs without us having to reinvent the wheel - and we can then focus on our expertise to provide the trainings.

Pros: What I like most about TalenLMS is that I have an unlimited amount of time (free plan) to customize the look and feel of the user interface to match that of my companies website and the time to create and test courses without being limited to 14 or 30 days trials. I was evaluating/learning three different LMSs at the same time and creating content in each. With TalentLMS I was not forced into paying for the LMS before I had ample time to evaluate it.

Cons: The Instructor-Led training class options.

I would like to be able to schedule an instructor-led class from a created course. I would like to select/assign the prerequisites for the course as opposed to assigning a course as a prerequisite.

I would like to schedule a new Instructor-led class date for a course already created as opposed to cloning a course.

Using TalentLMS for online-courses for managers and business analysts

Jun 03, 2015
4/5
Overall

Comments: I've been using TalentLMS almost for a year. We are offering live, blended and on-line trainings for managers and business analysts (courses: EU project management, Business Process Management, Social Responsibility Management,...) TalentLMS platform offers simplicity, ease of use for admins, instructors and learners. We have received many positive feedbacks from users about ease of use of the learning platform. We are also using Moodle and BlackBoard, but TalentLMS is more user friendly than any of mentioned. Strongly recommended.

Pros: PROS: Ease of use for all (admins, instructors, learners), simplicity, customer support, pricing plans. Updates with new functionalities (customer voice). Speed of bug fixing (last time I've found a bug and it was resolved in matter of hours) Configuration possibilities. Hassle free startup.

Cons: Document viewer is quite limited (too small), it does not support PDF links. Upgrade to new viewer is not automated (the course should be rebuilt and materials re-uploaded) Discussion forum is limited (it's difficult to get the logic behind, e.g. who receives the post updates) Overall, possibility to network learners using forums/comments/discussions is limited and not very useful. Forums can not be linked to a specific course. Forum can be embedded to a course using iFrame, but this is not the same. But these are only small glitches (more recommendations to improve) and not show-stoppers.

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

Recommendations to other buyers: Maybe it does not look so fancy as commercial LMS's, but still looks great. Use of custom CSS or templates is possible.

Pros: TalentLMS is feature rich, easy to use and has a lot of options for creating courses. They also offer a lot of customization options in terms of the domain, theme, logo, etc.

Cons: Much to my surprise, TalentLMS does not have a Google integration. You can upload documentation from Google, but not a direct integration to Drive. I found this surprising with so many G Suite business users out there.

Pros: Simple to use. Stable and reliable platform. Easy to customize. unlimited content. It didn't take long for our team to grasp the concept and develope our own online training courses. We created a platform and course structure that meets our needs and matches our own structure.

Cons: Some limitations compared to other much more expensive LMS platforms. Some of the packaged quiz types are limited. Branch administrators have limited rights.

Overall: We are developing a standardized training platform for our company on a very limited budget. We are getting the features we need.

Pros: When I first encountered TalentLMS, I was searching for an LMS to produce and sell a course. I knew nearly nothing about eLearning except for taking a course on BlackBoard and webinar platforms. Their website is choc-ful of training, from learning what an LMS is to, eLearning, different types of learners and instructing.

In addition, the site has pre-loaded courses to teach you about the various benefits and what your users can expect.

Cons: At this point I do not have any real cons. As a creative, I would like to see more certificate options.

Overall: The ability to present a professional product along with having innovative software to build upon.

Review of TalentLMS

Sep 10, 2014
4/5
Overall
5 / 5
Ease of Use
5 / 5
Customer Support

Comments: As nearly every other firm that utilises a learning management system, we invested about two months of time studying and testing a wide variety of LMS options. These options ranged from the purchase of an off-the-shelf system, to contracting a firm to build from the ground up, to working to modify an open source LMS (e.g., Moodle) to that of configuring specialised LMS plugins through a word press platform.

We ended up choosing TalentLMS for the following reasons:

Very clean, no frills interface.

System is fast and responsive on all known plaftorms (we are in a developing country where internet and other IT infrastructure is lacking)

Pricing is extremely reasonable

Fast turnaround on queries (which continued after purchase: very responsive customer service)

Periodic updates with active system for soliciting feedback and responding to customer suggestions for plaftorm improvements.

Extremely fast learning curve for implementation without the need for outsourcing support to LMS technicians.

Downsides:

Lack of integration with google services such as hangouts and calendar

Help files are still lacking in detail and sophistication

Lack of gamification elements

For our company, these downsides are not "deal-breakers" and probably contribute to the fact that the cost per user is quite low compared to most other providers.

Conclusion: For firms that need a clean, uncluttered, minimalistic approach to their LMS: Highly recommended. 4.5 Stars. For those who need an interface that offers a range of extras (such as gamification and state of the art conferencing) we would suggest weighing other options.

Pros: 1. Easy to use;

2. Enhancement of collaboration of staff;

3. Excellent visual, attractive for the customer;

4. Password generator;

5. Learning tools that revolutionize pedagogy.

Cons: Honestly I cannot afford premium services.

Overall: I'm an English teacher in Mozambique. I studied English, physics, math, philosophy and business. I was figuring out how to be a multi-teacher and share what I know with young people. I was fortunate to realize there was a platform well suited to it - TalentLMS. I had tried other website builders, but they were not suited for what I wanted. TaalentLMS was exactly what I wanted: organization of materials in subjects, possibility of collaboration among staff, easy of use (you build up and it's on immediately), easy to generate passwords for students, etc.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's worth using TalentLMS. I improved my computer experience with it. One uses it and learns a lot more about what can be possible online!

Pros: TalentLMS e-learning platform is really easy to use and contains all features we needed. Everyone in our team is able to prepare training content/course even without any kind of training or explaining. The platform is very intuitive. We didn't want to invest any effort to install and maintain the platform and TalentLMS completely met this requirement. Still it has everything we needed and it's not complicated. I like that you can use even existing materials as you training course content like Powerpoint presentations or Youtube videos - this makes the platform easy to use for everyone from your team. I also like the possibility to map e-learning to your own domain, customization of certificates and automatic evaluation of tests.

Cons: We have been using this platform only for few months now so there is not much bad about it. I would welcome more intuitive reports of learners progress in my course. When I want to check what is the progress of our learners, I need to download an excel file where I can find their percentage and where they are. I would like to see this progress in one click directly in the system. One more small thing I can think of is the graphical impression of blank course pages from the learner point of view. You can change the font type used for the content but I used the default one and it just didn't look good.

Pros: Very customizable. Able to create separate "branches" for separate product lines. Integrates with WordPress.

Cons: Would like a number that I could call into for support, but email response is good. Switching between roles is "clunky" at first.

Overall: Ability to train employees and provide educational materials to other companies.

Hi Davin,

Thanks a lot for taking time to leave us a review! We're really glad that TalentLMS has helped you cover your training needs!

Regarding phone support, we've rather opted for a ticket based support system for many different reasons that we've elaborated here: https://www.talentlms.com/blog/offer-phone-support/.Our average response time is 4.3 hours and this is a metric we constantly strive to improve, and when it comes to emergency matters, we manage those separately.

Thanks again for your feedback!

TalentLMS has turned out to be a great asset for my organization. I highly recommend!

Pros: The tech support team has been great! The system is very easy to use with minimum training required.

Cons: There are some limitations such as there is no option for learners to upload a document within a discussion board for other learners to view it. This could be possible through a different element if not a discussion board. It helps for learners to compare their work, and I haven't found any way to do that within this LMS.

Pros: Easy to use. The flexibilty to adapt the learning environment to the company's look and feel. Creating a learning path at a individual level but also at group level.

Cons: Some of the features is applicable for the whole platform and cannot be adapted for each branch. If this should be possible then I would say 'The sky is the limit'.

Pros: Flexibility in functionality

Flexibility in packaging

Excellent support

Clean simple user interface

Solid network infrastructure

Cons: A few relatively minor "nice to have" features not yet available but there are workarounds and the user group "suggestion" feedback process is well integrated into their development team to address these.

Overall: We're a small startup and needed to find an LMS in rapid time to enable an online learning program. We assessed several LMSs and found that all those we assessed, with the exception of the TalentLMS platform lacked one or other key piece of functionality. Once you get a little under the hood of the platform you find it's been very well thought through in order to allow a huge amount of flexibility. Cleverly, however, this huge degree of flexibility is all contained within a clean simple intuitive user interface.

Support has been exceptional as well. Responsive, helpful, friendly and professional.
