Training Media Review Awards GeoLearning LMS 3.75 out of 4 Stars
Independent research report also cites customer comments on GeoLearning’s “superb customer service” and “ease of use.”
Training Media Review (TMR), an independent research firm that reviews training content and supporting technologies, today released a research report awarding the GeoLearning learning management system and e-learning delivery platform an overall rating of 3.75 out of a possible four stars.
The research is part of TMR’s LMS Series, a growing number of reports written by training practitioners to help readers understand e-learning technology and provide an honest evaluation derived from hands-on experience. The GeoLearning LMS report is based on hands-on review and customer research conducted by Michael Feldman, a senior lecturer at Boston University’s Center for English Language & Orientation Programs.
The report notes that one of the strongest features of the GeoLearning LMS “is the clean, intuitive 3-D interface,” and “another area of strength is its learner tracking and report generation capabilities.” The research goes on to conclude that in the “highly competitive field of learning management systems, GeoLearning stands out. It has a comprehensive product line with a well thought-out design and interface leading to functional transparency and ample ease of use.”
Customers interviewed for the report commented on GeoLearning’s “superb customer service” and how the system is “extremely well designed and very easy to use.” The LMS also received top marks (four stars) for its ease of use and value of purpose.
When stacked up against other LMS solutions in the marketplace, TMR gave GeoLearning the highest possible rating (“strong compared to the competition”) in the following categories: overall effectiveness, learning design, interface design, variety of media types covered, ability to incorporate legacy content, presentation of graphics, customer support, learner/supervisor/instructor information management, and variety and ease of report generation.
“Training Media Review is renowned for the veracity and objectivity of their reviews which emphasize the first-hand experience of users,” said Frank Russell, president and CEO of GeoLearning. “We always welcome rigorous reviews of our system, and are extremely proud that the results of this research validate our efforts to provide clients with a powerful learning management solution that is easy to implement, easy to use and backed by superior customer service.”
“The goal of our research is to put readers at the controls of e-learning systems from leading providers,” said Bill Ellet, partner and editor for TMR. “We provide analysis of the major functions of the systems, their assets, and their liabilities. All of the reports are written by training practitioners and are based on thorough hands-on testing. They spend significant time actually using the software on their own. We never settle for a vendor demonstration alone.”
