SAP Litmos Overview

SAP Litmos LMS is a cloud-based continuous learning suite that is built with learners' experience in mind to engage users with intuitive, consumer-like app functionality. Litmos learning can exist anywhere it needs to and there’s no training program that Litmos can’t handle. It is meant as much for non-employee learners as it is for internal employees and is designed from ground-up with learners’ experience and admin ease of use in mind.

We support 28 languages and have a lot of international customers. We also own and build our own content through Litmos Heroes and Learning Seats acquisitions, and currently have over 2500 courses on healthcare, HR, OSHA, sales and marketing, leadership, and more.

Litmos is well liked by both learners as well as admins and currently holds commanding positions (publicly verifiable) on both the awards tally and customer satisfaction fronts. The platform can be quickly implemented, and it is very easy to build and track completions and compliance, thereby providing faster time to value.

A lot of manual and tedious tasks in Litmos are automated with built-in assignment engine, role-based security, and bulk uploads. Video Assessments, Boost and multiple flavors of notifications provide an additional flair by allowing learners to upload videos in real-time, reinforce learning with bite-sized nuggets of knowledge after a learning event, and stay updated with various system based or custom notifications.

We've been using Litmos for a little over a year, coming from another LMS system that did not meet our needs. Litmos is very easy to learn, we were building courses quickly once we got in. They have a great array of features for course building with different module types, including assessments, videos, text, and integrations with GoToTraining and other delivery tools that makes it easy to created a mixed deliverable which keeps people more engaged than slide after slide after slide. A for that.

They also update their product regularly with new features, and make it easy to learn/find these by notifications at the top of the site, and offering new release webinars and videos parked on YouTube. A on their communication of new features.

Reporting takes a bit of getting used to, as you can drill down from a broad set of figures to a granular individual student level, I often find it best to export these as Excel files and manipulate the data with my own formulas and pivot tables. B on reporting capabilities.

We use Litmos to train thousands of clients annually as opposed to training just a few hundred of our own staff - our DB at this point consists of 10,000 users and considering the volume, we very rarely have issues with the Litmos tool itself from an accessibility or bug perspective. As a professional trainer of software products, I can say confidently that that is a true accomplishment. A on code stability!

Best advice is to plan our your organizational needs as a flow chart so you get it right the first time.

Pros

Integrations with many outside products, including GoToTraining/Webinar, Salesforce, Wordpress, several shopping cart tools, and more.

Easy to learn, easy to course build.

Several options for organizing by Team or Learning Path.

time.

Cons

Two minor pet peeves in course building - no "center" option on image alignment - you have to either code it in, or put it in the middle of a 3 column centered table. No spell check in standard typing view, you have to go into the source code view to see spelling errors.

True con lately is support turn around time. Support is through online ticketing system, even if you call in, they simply file the ticket on your behalf. I understand the need for that, as we urge our own clients to use our self-service portals first. But we are currently in the position of needing assistance with the Litmos/Salesforce integration, and we are closing in on two weeks and still do not have resolution. I have twice proposed meeting times several days in the future and had team members on standby to drop what they are doing to meet with a Litmos rep when they have time for us, and both times got no response until after the proposed meeting dates. This needs serious improvement.

Great product with some minor annoyances

Used Daily for 1-5 months

Litmos is by far the best LMS we have use. With it we can easily manage hundreds of users, track their progress, and create reports from their activity. The user interface is simple yet is feature packed on both the admin and learner side. The interface is customizable with custom theme colors, logos, and images, so we could completely re-brand it. We were looking for an LMS that could be sold through an eCommerce solution and they offer that as well as give the added functionality of allowing the usage of Shopify. We needed to be able to set up courses that needed to be taken in a strict order and they have a solution called "Learning Paths" just for that very need. The issues we had were minor and were alleviated by Litmos's support staff very quickly, usually the same day. The pricing is the best out of everything we looked at for the features and they were willing to negotiate prices beyond their standard pricing. There is built in testing/quizzing/survey authoring tools but you can pair you own authoring tools with it by uploading files to the system. We use SCORM compliant authoring tools and they are imported without any problems. We manage a few teams as well and Litmos accommodates this exceptionally well by allowing teams, or groups of users, to be bundled together. Overall, a great product that has a generous trial period so there is nothing to lose.

Pros

Very affordable, many features are included in low subscription levels which are great compared to the competitors, great support staff, easy to use, allows for many different file types to be imported, includes a good eCommerce solution as well as many plugins for external management.

Cons

If you need to move people between teams, there is no way to do so. You will need to create a new user in the destination with the same credentials and same course assignments, and then delete that user from the source. The interface customization requires a bit of CSS if you really want to go beyond simply modifying colors. The servers tend to struggle some with very large files if users are international as we received some complaints of excessive buffering from users in Japan. That was at the very extreme side and was to be expected.

Litmos is My Choice

Used Daily for 2+ years

Review Source: GetApp

We have used Litmos to fill our need for easily accessible on line training for our users across multiple counties. It has improved our ability to not only manage regulatory and mandatory training, but to manage our staff compliance across the board for all of the positions within our Agency.

Pros

Litmos is both easy and fun to use! In our industry, we work hard and deal with many intense situations on a daily basis. Litmos allows us to offer fun and innovative ways to share information, collaborate with the Discussion forums and have fun with gamification. If we have to learn, it should be fun, effective and not add to the stress of our daily job.

Cons

I would love to see development regarding linking courses together. For example, one online course serves as the initial foundation and is good for one year. After that, they take a refresher course that would satisfy the need for renewal. Currently there is no way to do that. This is critical for our industry. We also need a way to offer the initial course as an ILT, then apply an online course as the refresher.

Litmos LMS is Great for Integrated eLearning

Reviewed on 2014/12/30
Review Source: SoftwareAdvice

Pros

With regards to the actual Learning Management System, the highly user-friendly interface allows me to be creative without the stress of a complicated application. The way modules are stored allows for reusing essential segments such as general course introductions and explanations. The seamless integration of other applications such as Articulate and Captivate is already impressive. However, being able to link my students to live presentations and actual sites for practical application provides more comprehensive accessibility. With regards to customer service, my concerns are addressed quickly. I feel that they care enough to consider my concerns even if they are not able to make adjustments at that time. Also, my students really like my certificates of completion, which are really easy to set up and change.

Cons

While this system is set up for eCommerce, it does not allow for the type of billing options that I want to offer my students. Additionally, the notice board is not easy to edit. I have had to retype my entire message. To address this, I develop my text in a word processor before copying and pasting it into the notice board. This has actually proved to be a better discipline for me, so I will probably continue this, even if they enhance the text editing capabilities.

Ahead of the curve in features, reporting and flexibility

Used Daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed on 2017/09/13
Review Source: SoftwareAdvice

We did a full 4 month research and vetting process to determine the best LMS for our needs, after more than legitimate 20 candidates of the hundreds to chose from we narrow the search to five and of them only one had the tools, feature and most importantly a vision for what the future looked like.

Pros

Easy build out and flexibility to use modules in multiple courses. Learning paths for course combinations make compliance training easy. However the two things that stand out a Pro 1) Customer Service/Support is over the top. Every time we have had a question or something wasn't as we thought it should customer and support is amazingly fast in response time and thorough in making sure we were back on track. 2) The reporting—you can build just about any report you can think of and trust me we have pushing the envelope.

Cons

Hard to come up with a con that is exclusive to Litmos that other do better or offer. My biggest issue is with the pricing model of the industry as a whole, but it's still not a con since Litmos has more flexibility in their model to (kind of) meet our needs.

I'm nit picking now but I wish we could turn off (hide) some of the fields in the registration page rather than just make them optional. As a company we already have the person information and data for the registrant so the page is unnecessarily messy. (I told you I was nit picking. )

    SAP Litmos Main Features

    Course Builder

    Using the Litmos LMS course builder, training administrators can build their own online courses. Embedded content creation tools support multiple formats. Litmos LMS’s course builder is designed in the same way people think, with three main category types: upload, create, and browse.

    Upload your own content from outside Litmos, including any videos, SCORM, or audio files you plan to include in your course. In the Create section, you’ll be able to generate Litmos formatted content, including assessments, ILT, and surveys. Finally, use the Browse section to find and copy content from your account into new courses.

    Course Content

    Course Library

    Giving learners a course library provides them with a way to browse, search, and self-enroll in online courses. Learners who click on the course library will be able to see all the courses they have access to, including courses they have already completed. Learners should also be able to sign-up for additional online courses from within the course library.

    As the training administrator, you have the option to add new courses to your library at any time. You can add any course to the course library by clicking on the “Settings” tab in the “Courses” area of your account. Common examples of courses added to company libraries include product demos, optional professional development courses, and advanced information on topics that are covered in mandatory online courses.

    Course Library

    Reports & Dashboards

    Reporting tools allow training administrators to review the performance of their learners and gain deeper insights into how their training programs are impacting employee development efforts.

    Visit the Reports tab to get access to real-time results and stay on top of the progress of individual trainees. All reporting information can be exported as PDF or CSV files. Reports should also include date ranges, which means you can select specific periods of time to pull data from when generating your reports.

    Gamification

    Gamification features within Litmos LMS help training administrators engage and motivate their learners. In doing this, administrators must rely on achievements, points, and badges, which are awarded based on a learner’s activity within the system.

    To take advantage of gamification, you’ll need to enable the feature and create badges or points for your organization. Determine what your learners will need to accomplish in order to earn each badge, and Litmos LMS will handle the implementation. Learners will continue taking courses as usual, and Litmos will distribute points and badges automatically. Learners can see the badges they’ve earned by clicking on the “Achievements” tab.
