Key differentiators & advantages of Lessonly
- Simulate Real-World Scenarios: Lessonly helps learners master skills by providing tools that help them practice situations similar to their daily activities. For example, users can pitch on video, give a presentation, practice chat conversations and ticket support, and more. For each lesson, you can provide feedback via a star-rating system and comments.
- Uncover Insights: The system lets you view a range of metrics related to training. Visual charts and graphs make information easy to digest. You can track things like satisfaction and engagement rates, course assignment and completion totals, quiz results, popular searches, event attendance, active users, overdue modules, and more.
- Add More Capabilities: Lessonly integrates with several popular applications to extend the system’s functionality to tools for HR, collaboration, sales, customer service and more. Supported integrations include Slack, Chrome, Zendesk, BambooHR, Zenefits, Namely and Salesforce.
- Manage Roles and Groups: Permission settings allow you to define the role each user falls under: learner, manager, creator or admin. This determines their access within the platform. When creating new users, you can also assign them to custom groups. By grouping users according to teams, you can ensure they all receive the right training.
- Support In-Person Training: The events feature is a means for conducting live, offline or instructor-led training. You can invite learners by giving them the link directly, sending an email, or publishing the event on the event dashboard.
- Create Unlimited Lessons: There’s no limit to the number of courses, learning paths and lessons you can build. Such flexibility lets you customize your training to the extent your organization needs.
- Organize Content: A tagging feature lets you organize each lesson and makes searching for specific information easy. It also allows you to group content together based on which team it’s for or the purpose it serves.
- Access Lessonly on Mobile: The Lessonly platform is mobile-friendly so users can access it from phones and other devices besides a desktop or laptop. This gives them freedom to log in to the site anywhere with an internet connection.

Very interactive and interesting. I can take quizzes or watch videos or even do flip cards to learn the content
No cons so far. I enjoy using Lessonly to learn
Makes learning new content fun and engaging
Lessonly is the perfect learning software for any team that does not have a dedicated enablement person. It is very easy to spin up new courses on a regular basis which makes it worth every penny!
The backend can look pretty disorganized with content for three different teams.
On boarding/training materials and on-going coaching were the two main reasons we purchased Lessonly. We have significantly decreased our ramp time since implementing. From an on-going coaching perspective, it has saved our managers a lot of time because we do not need to have the same conversations over and over with multiple sales reps - all of the information they need to effectively speak about a competitor, learn about a new feature, etc is all in one place for them to learn and then be tested on to make sure they're good to go!
The font that Lessonly has selected for the platform is just great. The customer service representatives are mostly great and very fast to help. I love the way Lessonly looks. Easy to read, easy to create, versatile. The platform is so user-friendly from both perspectives, the creator and the learner. This is a great utility, very useful. Lots of specialization and new features coming out every month it seems like. The representative that deals with my company is very kind and informative and helpful, it has been a pleasure working with her. I would recommend this service to other businesses in my area or other states, if I were networking with these people like at the Lessonly dinner celebration they held in Salt Lake City recently. That was a good experience where we were able to network with other Lessonly users from all over the United States.
Minimal control of type, but actually this is a positive thing because Lessonly has pre-selected the best font that is the easiest for everyone to read. Not much, I wish there were a few things like the option to add notes for graders to see but maybe they will add this feature soon. I don't like how the universal force retake setting cannot be non-universal, haha. But there is not a lot to dislike. This is a great utility very useful. Working with Lessonly has been a wonderful experience for me and my company. I recommend it strongly.
