Pros: - Easy to create content for administrators / creators

- Very intuitive to work with for new hires

- Web-based so changes in lessons made are updated automatically

- Overview of all users who did (not) complete their lessons

- Automatic email reminders for uncompleted lessons

- Great service from Client Experience Manager

Cons: The dashboards with information and statistics about who is assigned to which lesson and which user has still lessons open are available, yet they could be more advanced based on our personal preferences.

I have been informed this is on the roadmap so I am really looking forward to that.

Overall: Due to the growth of our company, we needed a Learning Management System (LMS) that would help onboarding all the new hires. Before we used a powerpoint presentation, but that wasn't maintainable nor scalable since we have multiple offices around the world.

That's why we started looking for a web-based LMS that was very easy to work with, both for the administrator creating content as for the users doing the online courses and quizzes. And if possible with a very simple yet slick design. After some research we found Lessonly and it checked all the boxes.

And now we are not using Lessonly just for onboarding new hires, we are also using it to train existing employees. Each department within Bynder has a specific team member that creates lessons and quizzes. Since it is soo simple to create / edit content, my life as an administrator maintaining it is also very easy. Every day I receive an email with all the lessons that have been completed by our colleagues. But I also receive notifications if some colleagues have missed their deadline.

Last thing I would like to point out is the great service we get from our Client Experience Manager. Whenever I send an email, I always get a reply within a few hours. When I ask a question, I always get an answer. Or sometimes even better, an instant solution!

When I request a conference call, my client Experience Manager is always available to catch up, discuss the feedback I have received from our new hires (who are very enthusiastic about our online Training Centre) and talk about new road map features. Several times I came up with suggestions that later I could explain in detail to their VP of Product - everything to make their product better and therefore my experience.

That is the kind of company we like to do business with!

Pros: Flexibility to train on any topic, technical support, contact with my rep, feel like I am a partner and not one of many customers

Cons: I would like to have more capabilities like on PowerPoint to jazz up the lessons (colorful backgrounds, effects, etc.).

Overall: We use Lesson.ly to help provide training to all of our employees; however, it has been most helpful to train our field staff who we do not see in the office that often. We are able to provide information to this group and ask them a few questions to attach accountability to them for knowing or being aware of policy changes, common issues in the field, and safety topics. We are also planning to offer blocks of training to new employees based on their position in the company to assist in orientation and beyond.

I would also like to comment on the customer support. I like that I can send one of my reps a quick email to describe an issue I'm having and I get a fast response. I don't think I've ever waited more than an hour... usually it is just a few minutes. I appreciate that.

Pros: constantly improving (been with them for 1.5 years and they constantly release new features), love that their decisions are research-based and some of their workforce are academics who have studied learning/teaching techniques. SO EASY to just write a lesson... adding people is easy, managing teams is easy (especially with the upgraded version, you can "hide" irrelevant lessons from separate teams). recently improved search and UI of the learning library was much appreciated. you can embed gifs, images, videos, sound clips, etc into lessons to make it as interactive as possible. our CSM is always around to help with 1:1 advice and the general support team is wonderful as well!

Cons: creating and managing tags leaves something to be desired - just not as intuitive as other parts of the platform. otherwise i still yeard for an easier way to manage lessons, something VISUAL like a tree or flowchart to quickly understand what lessons exist under what paths/teams - that's pretty minor though and not nearly a dealbreaker

Overall: if you have anyone in your company that's remotely-based, lessonly is a godsend. so easy, very fair pricing, and wonderful support/CSMs. two thumbs up!

Pros: Ease of use.

Great support.

Cons: Content catalog is a bit clunky. With lots of small lessons, it's hard to visualize what is in the catalog.

Overall: With Lesson.ly's intuitive platform anyone can create engaging online learning. Their built-in styles give you the most desired editing functions -- for example, callouts and having images that the learner simply clicks to enlarge. You can create content quickly and collaboratively without worrying about formatting or authoring tools.

As an instructional designer, I especially appreciate being able to deliver small chunks of material. It means that learners aren't waiting for a full course in order to get training. It makes keeping content up to date isn't a huge project. And it encourages learners to take and retake lessons when they need them.

However, having a lot of smaller lessons as opposed to fewer large courses makes working with the catalog a little challenging. I've needed to rethink how to structure and manage content. It still feels a little clunky, and I think a large catalog may prove difficult. However, Lesson.ly has also been making improvements.

And that brings me to my last point. The Lesson.ly team is fantastic. They are invested in your success, and it shows in everything they do. When you are working in the platform, they are just a click away. They listen. And they follow through.

If you're looking to build out informal or subscription types of learning, I definitely recommend trying out Lesson.ly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Definitely worth a look. Great choice for companies that don't have instructional designers on staff or whose training team is stretched.

Pros: Out onboarding plan had been a difficult to manage Excel spreadsheet for a long time.

Eventually, I was able to persuade management to use some more appropriate solution.

We compared Lessonly vs WorkRamp and lessonly was the winner because of more reach features set.

Thanks to feature that allow to track trainers activity, we were able to motivate experienced employees to create a number of training materials (most of people were able to use the app right away, without any training) and reward top performers.

Cons: Some of trainers reported they experienced formatting issues when creating complex training materials.

Overall: We started to spend 60%! less time on remote teams onboarding, so it's got easier to adjust out business to changing technology demands.

Pros: Lesson and course format for content creation, referenceable content in a "learning library" format, easy to monitor compliance, easy to create content.

Cons: Admin dashboard could use some improvement and more wiki functionality. I would also like a bit more customization in terms of formatting the content.

Overall: I've used Lesson.ly for about 6 months now, and am very happy with it. We have teams of contractors who perform services on behalf of our company, and Lesson.ly has made it easy for us to create content, send it out in a digestible way, and then monitor compliance. I do think the software lacks a few bells and whistles that would truly make it amazing, but what they lack in tech features they make up for in customer support. Their team is always willing to go above and beyond to help us figure something out or find a workaround.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think its the best out there - if you are looking to create a comprehensive training program, quickly, this is a great option.

Pros: as a small company they are always striving to improve and impress. couple feature have been released in the ~5 months we've had it, very intuitive and simple to use, the UX/UI is great and the possibilities are endless when creating a lesson. flipcards, embedded content, videos, images, gifs, formatted text, quizzes, etc. the gradebook is wonderful. all smooth sailing so far an a much needed piece of software for *our* growing company while we're scaling and creating more efficiencies. support team is very quick to respond and our CSM is always there to help.

Cons: my only complaints thusfar are very tiny things: every lesson has to be tagged & added to the learning library individually - there is no "bulk" creation template(s), so it's easy for creators to miss something. additionally, once you've got multiple departments in there, the list sort for all your lessons is a bit overwhelming. a more visual tree or chart would help a lot with lesson organization. finally, for employees who get a question wrong on their quiz, the amount of clicking around they have to do to see their feedback is inordinate

Pros: UI/UX design. Customer service.

Cons: Would love a more intuitive experience navigating around the gradebook or managing existing lessons.

PDF export of grade data is also something we'd love to see.

Overall: We looked at a few tools to help us provide better training to our new hires and existing employees. None were as easy to use and nicely designed as Lessonly. The user experience is our main priority, and that's where Lessonly has a huge leg up over their competition.

There are some features we'd like to have, and we've had an opportunity to share our feedback during the entire sales/onboarding process. We even had a chance to share feedback directly with members of their leadership team. Everyone has been friendly, responsive, and seem to genuinely care about our overall experience.

Their customer support has been top-notch as well. Extremely helpful and speedy in their replies. Recently, a bug I submitted was fixed within hours, with a nice follow up email to confirm. So where certain features lack, they make up for in a great experience. I feel like I can trust them to keep improving their software.

Recommendations to other buyers: Definitely speak with their team about questions/concerns/feedback. They're receptive, friendly, and typically very speedy with their responses. I feel well-supported.

Pros: Ease of use and helpful service team.

Cons: I have to use a lot of other software to manipulate images, videos, etc...because Lesson.ly doesn't include much in the way of content or design within the software.

Overall: As a user of several large LMS systems, most recently one from Oracle, I constantly lamented the fact that I was spending more of my time managing and learning their HUGE system than I was thinking about the impact of the learning material I was creating. When my learners told me they "just wanted to know what they had to do" I wasn't able to act on that feedback and make learning easier within the bounds of the LMS world. It was just more difficult than it was worth. Lesson.ly has been a breath of fresh air for me! It has less features than an LMS (on purpose) because they have realized that if the learning isn't simple, the learner won't want to engage with it. I highly recommend checking them out if you want to simplify your learning strategy and increase your employee's productivity and on-the-job confidence.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't be afraid to ask for help! The Lesson.ly team has some great best practices and has even introduced me to several third party apps and services that make using Lesson.ly even easier to use.

Pros: I use this product for all my new hires and sometimes tenured employees for additional training. The ability to built lessons within different paths is perfect for staying organized and making many different trainings to use continuously. I love that I am able to track my employee's progress within each path too, as well as the ability to test them on their knowledge.

Cons: The technical aspects of moving lessons from path to path is a bit long and could be made easier, maybe a couple of shortcuts could be made to make it a quicker process.

Overall: Training new hires and tenured employees. Testing employee company/product knowledge.

Pros: Lessons are easy to build. They frequently add new content for free. It is reasonably priced for small organizations. The staff is incredibly responsive and helpful. It works well with a lot of content which can be embedded.

Cons: Not SCORM compliant - this is common to other LMS platforms. Also, the gradebook could use some more views - but they're working on it!

Overall: Working with the Lesson.ly team has been fantastic. They are incredibly responsive to customer needs and concerns. They have helped me through every step of the development and roll-out process. Lessons are incredibly easy to build. They are also rolling out new features frequently. I've really enjoyed developing my content and sharing it with my employees. They've also enjoyed a new format for learning - one where they're not listening to me lecture all the time! Not SCORM compatible, but that's the only major inconsistency with other LMS platforms. I recommend Lesson.ly, especially for small education departments like me!

Comments: Working with Lessonly has been one of the best vendor partner experiences I've had. In our search for a learning platform, I was pleasantly surprised to find this (relatively) small company innovating in a market where most others are falling behind. The Lessonly platform has gotten us excited again about capturing and sharing internal company knowledge. The support and partnership we have with the Lessonly team is one of the best experiences I've ever had. They have provided great guidance on building setup and launch, building engaging lessons, and best practices around driving adoption. Lessonly rocks!

I look forward to lessons about new product updates from our training team every week!

Pros: The interface is clean, and lessons are relatively easy to create. Because it has such a minimalist design, there were very little extra work needed to make it look nice and enticing for our team to use.

Cons: They've only just now begun to add support for SCORM, relying solely on their built in editor for awhile. The customer support team is responsive, but very few changes or updates seem to be made from user feedback. It also felt as though substantial updates to the app were few and far between. This was disappointing, to say the least.

Overall: It was a simple, easy way for us to scale learning for our quickly growing organization. That being said, it feels like we grew faster than Lessonly was able to keep up with, so now we're looking for a more robust LMS that will provide more flexibility as we become more sophisticated in how we're approaching education as a company.

Pros: Excellent for small and medium companies, it is a great tool oriented to corporate training, but not so for online institutes or schools,. You can get started very quickly without a huge learning .

Cons: Make sure you have all the content and workflow well organized before using this tool, sometimes it is very difficult to look for information in the LMS, definitely need more customization in terms of formatting the content. They should improve the use of templates.

Pros: User friendly, really effective.

I've used Lessonly in two different organizations and I love it. It's the easiest way to onboard new employees, and (as an employee who has been onboarded with it), it's way more effective than traditional methods. Also, super user-friendly.

Cons: I'm sure there could be more functionality, but I don't feel like I'm missing anything.

Comments: We transitioned to Lesson.ly from another, more complicated, LMS and have been very happy with the transition.

The team are extremely helpful and always on call to troubleshoot any issues. (Despite the time difference between us, we're in the UK). The training materials provided are extensive, but unnecessary sometimes as the it's very intuitive to use and implement. The integration with OBIQ (haven't tested the latest Slack integration), has been very useful and setting it up was easy.

The Reporting function has been very useful in seeing where learners are struggling and reassessing our approach.

Overall, we're very happy with Lesson.ly!

Lesson.ly is an awesomely cohesive product!

Pros: The speed and functionality

Cons: The limitations in overall script formatting.

Overall: From a creation standpoint, Lessonly had been incredible easy to use and allows me to integrate creativity into my lessons. I have fun creating the lesson and enjoy receiving feedback from my colleagues. From a learners standpoint, I appreciate Lessonly because it allows for a different kind of learning experience. It also allows me to take my time and really absorb the information. I love that there is learning center Dashboard that I can access at any time. Lessonly has been a wonderful addition to my company and I would definitely recommend this product.

Lessonly is great!

Cons: Tagging questions/adding question types/font more customizable

Overall: Lessonly wasnt created for content management as I use it, but it gets the job done. Tagging allows me to add metadata to my 'lessons', and html format makes it easily accessible across devices and platforms. This also makes it easy to add content from other places and file types.

Comments: Our company uses Lesson.ly for corporate training.

The strongest points are the ease of use, great customer support, and constant improvements to the product. Every one of our new Lesson.ly users in our company found it very easy to figure out how to use Lesson.ly. They found it especially useful for distant learning and self-paced learning.

The customer support is one of the best in the industry. The tutorials are short and to the point. There is regular contact initiated by Lesson.ly to make sure that the software is fulfilling out company's learning needs. Feedback from customers is taken into consideration when deciding the evolution of the software.

The only negative comment would be that it takes a while to get used to the lessons & courses format that is at the core of how the material is organized.

Pros: The monitoring and reporting options

Cons: can sometimes be slow to load/react to selections

Overall: Very versatile package that allows you to build, assign, and monitor self-led lessons in an easy-to-view way. Can even filter lesson completions by groups to dig into who has, and has not, finished the training.

Recommendations to other buyers: Filtering completions by group is a god-send

Comments: I'm responsible for training and education for the BD team at my company, and I came into the job with no prior experience using tools like Lessonly. From the beginning, it was incredibly simple to figure out how to use it, build materials, and hold my team accountable for learning. The platform was integral in building out a comprehensive onboarding and training program that improved new hire productivity by 40% and decreased ramp time by 66% or more. In addition, the Lessonly team is always ready to lend a hand however they can. Great experience with the team and with the product!

Comments: From day one, the team at Lesson.ly has gone above and beyond helping us scale our company and, most importantly, our culture across three different locations and a variety of teams here. With their help, we've seen success and an increase in onboarding, productivity and general team development. Whenever we have a question, Lucy is always availible to chat, offer suggestions based on other client's successes and problem-solving. We've been able to use what we've built cross-functionally to develop easier, quicker and more personal connections with new team members.

Comments: I send out weekly lessons to keep our sales agronomists constantly reviewing the science behind our products, crops, and other industry need-to-knows. I have gotten a lot of great feedback from the "students" that are in my training program. They say they are so glad to have the review that keeps them refreshed with information they learned in college and have since forgotten, but also touching on new subjects and learning more concepts behind basic topics. It is easy to use on the back end of creating the lessons and also for the users to take the lessons.

Easily create and manage company learning.

Pros: Lesson.ly is so simple to use - both on the lesson creation end and the user end. This is very helpful for my learners who aren't very computer-savvy.

Cons: The subscription is a little too expensive for the amount that we use it, and there are no smaller packages available.

Overall: It has been easy to measure our sales people's learning and where new employees are at in their industry knowledge-level. This is great so we know what level we need to start training each individual.

Comments: Lesson.ly is simple to use as both an admin and user, which allows you to spend more time on the stuff that actually matters... learning! At the same time, the options and features for creating, sharing, and tracking course materials are very robust and constantly improving. As we grow and expand our training needs, Lesson.ly is right by our side with amazing customer service and outreach. I am alway amazed by the new features, tips, and tricks and plan to continue to invest more time and resources in using Lesson.ly with our team.

The level of customer service I have received from both Joanna and Kelsey is unparalleled!

Pros: I love how lessonly simplifies organizing large amounts of information and makes onboarding employees and customers easy and fun!

Cons: Lessonly is not great as database or resource center, especially if you have longer lessons. I'd recommend using a different platform if you want to have easy access to all the information for quick reference.

Comments: Lesson.ly is used by my company regularly and has many useful features and functions! Some of the great features that we use often is the organizing system, it keeps great track of all of the lessons that are created, and allows for easy access to lessons that are in the same department.

The way Lesson.ly's system is setup to create lessons is fast, easy, and very intuitive!

Overall, Lesson.ly was well worth the money and I recommend it!
