Praise for eNetLearn from Learning Analysts Learning Light

Dunfermline (SCT), May 2021 - Learning Light, a UK-based eLearning and learning technologies specialist that provides advice and consultancy to organisations looking to improve their business performance, has published an in-depth review of eNetLearn, the learning management system developed by digital learning and assessment specialists, eCom Scotland.

According to Learning Light, "For a SaaS LMS, eNetLearn offers great value for money. It comes with a fully loaded feature set, including sophisticated multi-tenancy and a library of integrations - including Zoom and Salesforce - out of the box, which is truly impressive, and there is also the option to customize eNetLearn. All this is wrapped up with a culture of customer care and support from eCom that is second to none."

Praising the LMS's user interface (UI) for both learners and administrators, Learning Light points out that, while being able to cope with large numbers of users, eNetLearn can be licensed for as few as five learners, making it even appropriate for those wanting to dip their toes into the LMS world.

"There is a plethora of LMSs," commented Linda Steedman, eCom's CEO, "so, among the key questions to ask are in regard to your organisation's actual LMS requirements compared with an LMS’s capabilities and the alignment between your learning objectives and your organisation's goals. It is also crucial to investigate the UI the LMS delivers, as well as the reliability and after-sales service of your shortlisted vendors."

David Patterson, Learning Light's Director, commented, "eNetLearn was developed, in partnership with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) and Mencap, with ease of use and accessibility in mind to ensure that it meets the highest accessibility and usability standards and, as an LMS, that it flows smoothly from screen to screen in an unassuming manner. Behind this façade, the attention to detail is exemplary.

"Screen layout is precise, navigation is clear, and clutter is banished. Overall, the UI and user experience (UX) are nicely understated, with the principles of accessibility presented to perfect effect.

"A tiled window allows the building of learning pathways and the allocation of learning, including events and wider blended learning, through this one interface," he added. "With eNetLearn, all this is deceptively easy and a terrific time saver when administering learning.

"Furthermore, I was also impressed that eCom is happy to customize the LMS - for example, including enhanced registration processes, along with learner tracking. This isn't usually an option in the SaaS world, and it's becoming rarer with the advent of public cloud."

"We're delighted to see that Learning Light's review also highlights that they undertake all bespoke configuration work in close collaboration with the client," commented eCom's Linda Steedman.

"We follow a robust three-stage testing and deployment approach and provide full documentation for the deployed solution, as well as on-going support. It's important to us that every customer is contacted once a month to ensure that they remain happy with their product and the ongoing support services they receive from eCom."
