About Absorb LMS

Absorb LMS is designed for the efficient creation and delivery of self-paced online learning, mobile learning, live instructor-led events, and blended learning programs. Absorb LMS can automate the entire learning management process, from learner registration, to enrollment, tracking and reporting, communication, certification, and beyond.

Using Absorb LMS, it’s easy to define which learners get which content, providing a personalized learning experience. Learners simply log in and immediately begin accessing their content. The powerful administrative features are intuitive and clear. With very little training, administrators will be setting up learner groups, configuring courses, enrolling learners, and generating reports.

The Absorb LMS user interface can be configured to reflect your organization’s brand and emphasize your training and communications priorities. The widget-based home page allows our designers to put together the perfect look for your training portal, with full support for mobile devices such as tablets and phones.

Absorb LMS takes advantage of cloud computing with fully managed bandwidth, storage, security, backup and recovery, as well as global content distribution through EdgeCast.

  • My company has been using Absorb 4 since 2012, and we've been mostly happy with the functionality and ease of use. The learner interface is very intuitive. Only downside for our institution was the inability to "hide" completed courses from the My Courses list. That has been fixed in Absorb 5, which is very good news. Administrators find the Admin interface fairly easy to use, but again we're excited about seeing the changes that come with Absorb 5.

    Pros : Mobile friendly, good search capabilities, customizable with branding

    Cons : Most of the cons for us were because we had an installed instance instead of cloud hosted. Updates were hard to process and therefore we were always multiple versions behind. These issues should be resolved with being hosted, since updates are pushed out automatically.

  • If you have a medium-to-large-size business with employees to train, Absorb is the most attractive and functional turnkey learning management system we've tested.

  • My assessment –I like Absorb and their LMS — powerful, global and easy with an experienced professional services team to back it up. They are a good candidate for pure extended enterprise or combo employee/external LMS initiatives.
