Product Review – Instilled LXP

eLearning 24-7

Writing a product review on a product that I use, well, I am about to use. I was planning on adding to my Findanlms.com (the web site part of it), a new section called vendor videos, and thus seeing the video aspect on the Instilled, I saw a perfect fit. For my review, I added a series of videos from the CrossKnowledge LMS (which is on the FindAnLMS learning system search engine platform and will be on the vendor video playlist).

Product Review: Knoodle

eLearning 24-7

Confusing once you dive into the product – see below. Problems abound within the product – not bugs mind you, just poor processes (IMO). One of the features I do love about the product is the ability to drag and drop – yet this is the only screen you can do it from. Ability to play on the screen, rather than click Preview to do so – which is how the product is set up. I love products that are fun to use and create.

Product Review: Saba Social

eLearning 24-7

Saba Social is a very solid product, that despite a few hiccups and “huh&# moments, achieves what it sets out to do, provide a user friendly social experience. Generally speaking, nothing innovative – there is so much potential there and it is wasted – I mean this can be a really awesome product, but they missed the boat.
