Bad: Notifications currently cannot be paused or ignored.
Bottom Line: Robust LMS to help specialized or highly regulated industries successfully train and certify employees.

Product Overview

MotiveLMS is a cloud-based learning management system that enables companies to efficiently train and monitor employee certifications/qualifications. Users can group the training curriculum by job roles, create content and track learner performance. MotiveLMS accommodates all types of training, such as on-the-job training, online courses, instructor-led training and document-based “Read and Signs”. It also has customizable features, including branded portals.

The software has several benefits, including:

  • Cloud-based deployment, so companies won’t need to host or maintain the software
  • The ability to report training compliance to customers and regulatory bodies
  • An intuitive mobile-responsive interface
  • Scalable pricing packages


We’ve listed some key features of the MotiveLMS below.

MotiveCAT – Users can build mobile-responsive courses with the MotiveCAT SCORM authoring tool. It accommodates a variety of media (e.g., video, images, audio), and content can be exported to any SCORM-compatible LMS software.

Qualification Management – System administrators can create a qualification curriculum based on customer requirements, employee functions or job role specifications. MotiveLMS has customizable email templates that notify employees and their supervisors to complete training, and they can get these reminders right on their mobile devices.

Electronic Matrix Tracking – With this feature, users can set up training matrices that identify the courses employees and/or contractors are required to complete. They can also run a matrix report that highlights any missing or incomplete training.

Virtual Training – MotiveLMS integrates with web conferencing tools (e.g., Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet). Users can set up a virtual training event and invite attendees within the software.

Reporting – The reporting feature includes the ability to track learner performance and other metrics, as well as share reports with internal teams or clients.

Integration with internal and external company systems to facilitate data sharing is easily programmed using the MotiveLMS API Key Generator, and customization and integration efforts are completed on a per-project basis.

Motive Learning receives the most feedback from users on its reporting and notification features. Reporting features can vary by client and often has a “shelf life,” so the vendor offers a complete view of enrollment records that clients can filter and extrapolate via Excel. Motive Learning works with clients that require custom reports or prefer not to filter through the data.

Also, notifications are currently an “all or nothing” feature. Some clients have said they would like to receive additional notifications, as well as have the ability to ignore irrelevant notifications.
