    The platform enabled us to increate the angagement with learning in the organisation. People are now much more aware of what is possible and it helped several departments to push their material in a much more engaging and fun way. Next to this, the software helped raise the profile of our learning department.

    Pros

    The fact that this combines, social learning, Gamification and a great platform into one simple solution.

    Cons

    I was expecting more development to take place over the last period. So although the platform is cutting edge as it is, I was hoping to be dazzled by even more great developments.

    business engagement, making learning fun, people want to log on to gain XP and collect badges.

    Pros

    1. It's a place to capture all of the information within our business, not matter what department you work in. 2. The gamification is exceptional and works so well for us. 3. It's completely brand-able and you can make it your own and bespoke to how you want it to look and feel.

    Cons

    There isn't much that I don't like about this software, I think it's great. The only thing we don't utilise right now is the Classroom Events, as this doesn't seem to work for us.

    Having been quite excited to work with the academy, after seeing marketing materials etc in a previous role, I was more than a little disappointed.

    Pros

    Look and feel and some of the gamification features

    Cons

    Inability to do some critical things, such as set a due date on a course. Overly complicated method for things such as removing an invite. User management isn’t great either, with users who block their account not receiving password reset emails, and being added to a ‘leaver’ list where they will be deleted after X days(customisable) if not reactivated. This can be turned off, but then leavers need to be deleted manually; which makes it a catch 22 situation really.

    The level of support was great - our customer service team worked with us through the implementation phase and beyond to ensure we were satisfied.

    Pros

    We loved the ability to customize the site to coordinate with our other professional development programs. We could upload SCORM packages for compliance testing from other sources easily that were required training and we could easily build new courses in their site. The gamification features are very engaging, fun and allowed us to emphasize important initiatives by rewarding great prizes.

    Cons

    In the financial industry compliance is a heavy burden and we had to do more manually tracking in the system than we preferred. However we were very pleased to see their roadmap which will enhance compliance reporting features in the future!

    I think this is a great LMS for our leaners who have some experience with computers but others do not find it very intuitive.

    Pros

    The implementation of our various modules, the fact that learners level up automatically when they complete each lesson, the badges make it fun for the learners

    Cons

    Sometimes things get fairly messed up with new updates etc. Things tend to go missing sometimes
