Brainier LMS At A Glance

Bad: On-premise deployment is no longer available.
Bottom Line: LMS solution with customizable features designed to help companies train employees.

Product Overview

The Brainier LMS is a cloud-based LMS where employees can access video-based training content anytime, anywhere, from any device. It uses an intuitive interface with built-in wizards to easily track content, build reports or access other features.

Companies can set up their interface to match their brands – for instance, adding a company logo or a theme. Brainier LMS also integrates with web conferencing tools, such as GoToMeeting and WebEx.

One unique feature we want to point out is that Brainier LMS supports xAPI for tracking and reporting of activities of a user’s learning experience.
