YesLMS At A Glance

Good: Accessibility features (e.g., adjustable fonts, image descriptions, keyboard navigation), customizable to fit an organization's needs, quick implementation.
Bad: YesLMS is not currently SCORM or AICC compliant, noncompliant gamification features are not offered.
Bottom Line: Cloud-based LMS platform that's designed to make learning accessible to everyone.

Product Overview

YesLMS is a new cloud-based platform built from the ground up for ease of use and accessibility.  Its clean, streamlined interface allows instructors to easily select the options they need without getting overwhelmed by endless possibilities.  YesLMS is designed with an “instant-on” approach to allow organizations to get their educational content online without delay.  It even includes a massive library of high quality stock photos to lend a consistent professional touch to courses.

YesLMS  provides accessibility for every learner, especially those that require assistive technology (e.g., screen readers, captioned videos) or other accommodations (e.g., additional time on assessments). Other accessibility features include automatic scaling for device size and user-selectable contrast.

YesLMS has additional benefits, such as:

  • Cloud-based deployment, so learners can access software from any device
  • Unlimited courses and registered users
  • Robust features (e.g., eCommerce, multi language capabilities, reporting)
  • A short implementation process
  • 24/7 customer support
  • Scalable monthly subscription tiers

Features

YesLMS has many robust features, including content authoring tools, quizzes, integration with external trainings, customizable certificates, and multi-language support.

Instructors can create easy-to-navigate and accessible content with options that include: various themes, layouts, fonts and background colors; mobile responsive designs; screen reader support; keyboard navigation with shortcut links; image descriptions and video captioning. A stock image library containing thousands of professional photos covering a wide range of subjects is available for royalty-free use in courses.

Instructors and administrators can interact with learners using forums, notifications, surveys and calendars.

Full eCommerce capabilities are available, including PayPal integration.

If course access needs to be limited, options include per-course access codes, and user or group authorizations.

In addition, the software has built-in reporting, so users can track course performance and other metrics. It also supports multiple languages, such as English, Spanish, French and Brazilian-Portuguese.

Implementation/Integration

The implementation process typically takes less than 24 hours and uses the following steps:

  1. The client provides their organization’s logo.
  2. YesLMS creates a landing page with a customized URL and company logo. Users can access a set of sample courses, a quick start guide and a comprehensive user guide via the landing page.
  3. YesLMS provides free online or phone assistance of up to two hours total to walk new clients through the system, answer questions and guide them through its features.

If a client requires more extensive onboarding or a hands-off approach, YesLMS offers a “white glove” service tailored to specific needs. This service can include uploading of courses, formatting of course material, online training sessions for end users and more.

YesLMS follows up with the client one week after onboarding to ensure that they are comfortable with the software.

Customer Service & Support

YesLMS’s onboarding specialist is available for questions via phone or email. It also has a ticketing system and chat support.

Pricing

YesLMS has four subscription tiers that include unlimited courses, unlimited registered users, eCommerce functionality, 24/7 support and custom reports. Each tier is detailed below.

  • Unlimited Basic – This tier costs $199 per month and accommodates up to 25 active users per month and two portals. There’s a $5 fee for each additional active user.
  • Unlimited Silver – This tier costs $399 per month and accommodates up to 100 active users per month and two portals. There’s a $5 fee for each additional active user.
  • Unlimited Gold – This tier costs $499 per month and accommodates up to 250 active users per month and 10 portals. It also has branding and customization, SSL for a private domain and multilanguage features. There’s a $5 fee for each additional active user.
  • Unlimited Platinum – This tier costs $649 per month and accommodates up to 500 active users per month and 10 portals. It also has the same features as the Unlimited Gold plan, and there’s a $5 fee for each additional active user.

The “white glove” service starts at $1,000 and requires a subscription to either the Unlimited Gold or Unlimited Platinum tier.

Shortcomings

YesLMS is in the process of becoming Scorm/AICC/XAPI compliant and hopes to reach that goal by July 2020. Also, because it’s built to be universally accessible, YesLMS doesn’t include gamification features from other platforms that are not 508, WCAG 2.0/2.1 or ADA compliant.

About

YesLMS is a mission-driven company dedicated to eliminating barriers in education, especially the lack of accessible training materials and the challenges that learners with visible or “hidden” disabilities face. Recognizing that most learning management systems don’t have accessibility options that some learners need, co-founders Linda Hedenblad and Doug Gimenes used their backgrounds as educators and vocational rehabilitation counselors to develop a software that provides universal accessibility to all individuals.

YesLMS has been recognized by the Helen Keller National Center for its user-friendly and accessible online content creation features.
