Schoox At A Glance

Good: Takes minutes to implement and easy to scale for adding many users.
Bad: Content creation is an additional service. Social features may seem unnecessary for LMS needs.
Bottom Line: Highly intuitive cloud-based LMS with strong social and mobile features.

Product Overview

Schoox is a unique learning management system (LMS) that strongly resembles a social platform.

The solution not only supports SCORM-certified content, but it can also incorporate many types of files into lessons, such as Word documents, PowerPoint presentations and PDFs. Administrators can also share training content directly off the Web with employees.

Users update their profiles with accomplishments as they complete courses. Employees are able to engage with others in their workplace and collaborate through discussion boards.

Gamification is a unique feature that brings out competitive aspects in top-performing talent. Leaderboards allow employees to see where they rank against each other.

The solution integrates with Citrix GoTo Training for real-time instructor led courses as well.

Features

Schoox has a wide variety of features for managing and assigning courses intelligently. Here we’ve included five highlights:

1. Collaboration: Schoox includes unique gamification features for users to earn badges, rank on leaderboards and earn other accomplishments to display on their employee profiles. Users can collaborate on discussion boards, rate courses and receive course announcements.

2. User Management: Schoox has flexible notification settings for users and a self-service password recovery process to save administrators’ time, as well as a comprehensive organizational module to keep track of the whole company’s management structure.

3. Content Management: Share content directly from a website to the LMS, upload a variety of file types for sharing, create rules-based folders for specific employees to access content, and connect with document management solutions such as Google Drive, Dropbox and more.

4. Talent Management: Assess and rank users by skill sets and job duties, and automate assessments by course completions. Create exams for each course, update course material for multiple courses at once and tailor courses to on-the-job training.

5. Reporting Features: Access reports based on internal criteria such as the organization’s hierarchy, create infographics for visuals on reports, compare groups of learners to one another (such as those at different company locations) and export data to Excel.

Shortcomings

Some users have described Schoox as a “Facebook”-style solution. This may not be ideal for all organizations looking for a LMS.

Course-creation tools also don’t come standard with Schoox. While it includes a library for storing and altering documents to use for training purposes, content creation is a separate service.
