Pros: Xyleme's single-sourcing capability is an absolute gamechanger for any organization. It takes any and all content that exists within your organization and instantly transforms it into exponential amounts of potential. For any organization that is serious about eliminating a one-size-fits-all and/or fixed deliverable approach to learning and is committed to reaching people with a multitude of experiences, languages, and brands, Xyleme is the absolute best thing out there.

Cons: Xyleme requires a substantial mind-shift - it is not difficult to use, but is most effective when emerging skillsets in instructional design are applied (e.g. design thinking, object-oriented design, data analysis). It can be quite a transition for individuals that do not yet fully possess these skillsets, so does require upskilling and ongoing development for learning professionals (but, hey, we're learning people, so we should love to learn, right?)

Overall: Xyleme enables me to be truly transformational with regards to learning in my organization. Currently, it is the number one tool in my arsenal in my quest to make learning less about something we "do" to people, and more about something that is seamlessly and effortlessly embedded in the flow of their work. We're currently building assets now that will be incorporated in not only existing physical and technology learning architecture but in the learning space of tomorrow....today. We are also able to collect detailed learning analytics that form a part of our data lake and are then correlated with data analytics across our organization. Our partnership with the amazing team at Xyleme is what helps us to be a true business partner in our organization, and has certainly earned Learning a much-deserved seat at the table with regards to organizational strategy.

Far too many bugs and problems to be useful

Pros: The concept behind Xyleme is good. The idea of creating re-usable learning objects can, in theory, save you a lot of time in developing content.

Cons: Xyleme is riddled with bugs to the point that you waste much more time than you might save with any content re-use. The interface is also not at all user-friendly. Even simple tasks, like editing a bulleted list causes confusion. Creating a bullets is not complicated, but with Xyleme it actually is.

You can often spend hours trying to get an image overlay to look right, only for it come out misaligned once you publish. There are many features that are broken and some that can even corrupt your content. (For example, do NOT resize an image with the buttons and be VERY careful with the undo button)

The features are also very limited. For example, the overlay editor allows you to annotate images, but only gives options of very basic shapes: rectangles, circles, and text. I'm pretty sure my old Macintosh from the 90's could do more than that.

The quality of the interface seems like Xyleme is only aiming for mediocrity. Many features seem half baked, as if the developers made a bare-minimum effort to meet a user requirement without trying to make it function smoothly or usefully. For example, the spellcheck feature doesn't let you suggest a word, so if the word you want is not in Xyleme's dictionary, there's nothing you can do. Another example: you can align objects in the overlay editor to the left, or top, but not to the right or center. Both of these seem like the developers only did the bare minimum so that they could say that the feature exists.

Overall: My overall experience with Xyleme is frustration. How can software with this many problems and bugs even be published? I think a coworker of mine said it best: "I'm not sure why we are paying for the privilege of being Xyleme's QA department."
