Great Platform with Reasonable Cost

NextThought allowed us the ability to shift quickly to a virtual event with the staff skill set we currently have without breaking the budget. They were quick to respond, willing to adapt and listened to our feedback. Great experience!

Pros

Our small team was able to build out and implement our virtual conference quickly and easily from the administrator side. The learner experience was seamless for the most part with NextThought receiving very high ratings in the post-conference survey. The scalability of the platform is brilliant giving us the ability to build one simple course or a multi-day virtual conference with 80+ sessions. Learners are able to track progress and download certificates within the platform which is critical for our audience.

Cons

The discussion feature on videos is not a real time chat therefore losing engagement and we can't track CEUs for individual sessions when using the platform as a multi-session conference module. Surveys were a little tricky. We look forward to the full Zoom integration, but we will utilize the LTI in the meantime.

Alternatives Considered

Cvent Event Management, Freestone and Brightspace

NextThought Review

Overall our experience with NextThought was great! The team was phenomenal - Always kind and helpful. We went through three project managers during our implementation: [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] All three of them were on top of things and readily available to help us with whatever questions we came up with. Our project included some very specific integrations with our own software, and the NextThought programming team was easy to work with. I think our learners have really enjoyed using the platform, and we are pleased with the final product!

Pros

My favorite part of this software is how simple it is to use. We were able to get our online courses created quickly. It's easy to re-enter courses and edit them if needed. We were also able to integrate NextThought into our own software and make a seamless login transition for our current users. The NextThought team was really great to work with throughout the entire process, and we are happy with the end result!

Cons

The only con is that we are not able to choose the order in which our courses display for our learners. I understand that this is something that the NextThought team is working on developing, so we are hoping this will be a possibility in the future.

NextThought LMS Is our Choice for a Statewide LMS

The support during the evaluation and now that we have started rolling it out has been stellar. Quick responses to any questions.

Pros

Everything about this system was easy during the evaluation period. Easy to build courses, easy to take them, easy to track results. We needed an LMS that allowed for unlimited users as we are promoting a CDC healthcare initiative to every healthcare worker in Maryland. Many of these learners will return in the future for additional training. NextThought offered everything we needed at a very reasonable price.

Cons

I have yet to encounter any functionality problems.

Good solution for a medium sized business

Really seems more like a partner than a vendor

Pros

Features and cost and that we were connected quickly

Cons

Took me a bit to understand how to build a course but the support was so inviting and non-judgemental so I got it done.
