"Best MOOC platform available"

What do you like best?

Intrepid is an intuitive, user-friendly platform that makes it easy to create content in a highly engaging, learner-centric way. Its aesthetically pleasing and customizable so you can really create the flow of content in a way that learners appreciate. I love that you can add a blend of video, audio, text, context, activities, etc. and address not only multiple learning preferences, but also all of Bloom's taxonomy from quizzes to peer reviewed projects.

What do you dislike?

While it tries to be social, there are some issues with sending out notifications when people post comments, discussion topics, etc. People expect it to be more like Facebook or other social platforms they use. So discussion forums are always the lowest rated factor in the platform because people don't get as much out of these features as they'd like.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Problems: We're solving how to do engaging training asynchronously with the benefit of workshop-like features. So people can take training on their own time, but still can have social interaction and ask questions as needed.

Benefits: Higher scores than a traditional elearning

"Best online learning platform I’ve found"

What do you like best?

The learner experience is second to none. As a developer I can create great content quickly and it is immediately available to my learners if I choose. It can also be updated on the fly using just a tablet. The chunking down of learning “modules” allows greater flexibility both in building content and consuming it as a learner. The output always seems to look amazing.

What do you dislike?

A lack of integration with SCORM based learning modules (it doesn’t behave like an LMS) that would allow us to asses skills (completion data isn’t pulled through from the SCORM module).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our environment changes rapidly and the biggest problem we face is keeping online content up to date. Classroom training is rarely used these days and we rely on our employees to self serve learning with some guidance. It’s essential for the learning content to be correct and up to date. We are able to use learner feedback as well as our own reviews to quickly update content on the fly.

What Online Learning Platform solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"eLearning platform"

What do you like best?

Their platform is filled with useful tools to make an eLearning program very interactive. It has great features, polls, video, discussion, quizzes, gamification, leaderboard. It is highly customizable and has a very friendly user interface. Participants love it.

What do you dislike?

The backend of some features is clunky. Quizzes for example. There are some other quirks in how you have to put some things together. The project and review was so complicated, we had to scrap it and do it another way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is our foray into online leadership training. We are a primarily ILT firm and deal with very subtle subjects. Diversity, psychological safety, emotional intelligence. Through our partnership we have been able to design a program that keeps our secret sauce.

"Good customer service, good tool, enhanced functionalities welcome"

What do you like best?

- openness of the team to receive feedback and act on it

- the support team work hard to maintain a high level service, especially during crisis time

- good tool with simple display, pretty straight forward to use

What do you dislike?

- to slow in developping new products

- not really mobile friendly, the reactive design doesn't work well

- Would be good to have a superuser group to help in the design of new functionalities and to test them

- need of a better API integration

- lack of giid/effective interaction between participants/moderators

- for admins, a lot of very manual steps and lack of flexibility for bulk activities (downloads, copies, word replacement...)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our business is about online learning, we need simple yet innovative and state of the art online learning platform. Intreprid has been a great partner until now in supporting our solution, which is very complex!we'd like now to see an Intrepid 2.0 with new functionalities, design, enhanced ux.

"Best Digital Classroom Experince I have Ever Seen"

What do you like best?

I love the simple and sophisticated interface and ability to deliver quality content in an environment that replicates and in some instances, surpasses what you can achieve with traditional ILT. The platform has allowed us to rollout Prepare and Embed content digitally, maximising the ROI on time spent together in a physical location. We have achieved scale that was previously unimaginable, and delivered global programs in timeframes that are simply amazing.

What do you dislike?

Reporting capability is limited. I hope the future roadmap supports enhancements in dash boarding etc. I'd also love Intrepid to form alliances with other best in class applications to support an optimum learning ecosystem- IE: Examination/Assessment platform, Reporting and analytics engine, pure content aggregation that enables manager self-serve

Recommendations to others considering the product

Let me be your Australian BDM!

* Access to amazing support like Judy Albers, Ann and Sanjay

"Modern Learning Platform that delivers a great user experience"

What do you like best?

Intrepid is perfect for modern, compact and time-efficient learning experience. It delivers what learners need and expect, a no-fuss learning on the go, tailored to available time and environment. Most importantly, it makes learning fun!

That being said, Intrepid can be used for fairly large and complex training programs efficiently.

This system is absolutely fantastic to work with for IDs and admins, and the support that we have is top level, very professional and helpful.

What do you dislike?

Intrepid could benefit from some reporting / content development features. The assessment functionality is sufficient for basic learning checks, but not complex evaluations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rapid deployment and quick updates to the existing content

Easy learners management and great progress visibility

Learners come back again and again as they love the experience

Course development is very straightforward and easy

Multiple content formats and layouts can be used resulting in highly tailored learning experience

"Telstra Loves the Learning Hub"

What do you like best?

As admin's, the ability to create content on the fly and quickly enables us to get learning into our sales channels and to our learners very quickly. Being able to manage this content in house saves us time and much pain.

What do you dislike?

Content Tracking is difficult without unique content identifiers

Recommendations to others considering the product

The platform's content is only as good as what you create! And be careful not to accidentally delete sites! It can be a bloody nightmare!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One key problem we've solved with Intrepid is training at scale, in an engaging manner. Intrepid has allowed for us to supplement traditional face to face learning in a way that still allows for the best outcome for our teams. This had led to higher engagement, participation and sales results.

"Admin Perspective"

What do you like best?

From an admin perspective I really like that we can put all the tools and information that we are using into one location. This has worked really well when we are onboarding new team members and are easily able to get them the tasks that they need to complete in their first day to 90-days.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was more capabilities around emails and to drip emails out. We currently have to use MailChimp to get set emails to go out as we have new hires weekly.

A connection or location within a Group to add files for sharing or editing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This site has been able to give us a variety of ways to use it. I would recommend to anyone doing team member onboarding or leadership programs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A one stop shop for our new team members onboarding experience.

A way to involve our Advanced Leadership Development groups (year long group).

"An Awesome Platform for Powerful Experiences"

What do you like best?

I love the interactive nature of the platform that gets people both on and off computers as they learn. It is based on best-in-class educational principles for how we best learn.

What do you dislike?

I wish it had a mobile app even though it's mobile responsive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No Barriers is a nonprofit focused on providing transformative experiences that unleash people's potential. With Intrepid, we're bringing those experiences to thousands of individuals.

"A great platform for MOOC learning"

What do you like best?

The platform continues to adapt and grow and the team behind the platform makes strong leaps and bounds to make it happen.

What do you dislike?

I personally do not like the current billing model. The per-user, per-month, deduplication, partial use of a month at full rate is not a great model.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The primary business problem is getting training out to large volumes of employees quickly in an economic fashion. The ability to train 1000 people in a single instance as opposed to hosting 40 classroom trainings makes mass learning possible.

"Great Platform"

What do you like best?

I like the flexibility to meet a variety of training needs. As an instructional designer, I love being able to see content in its published form immediately. And I love that training can be better integrated into the work environment where it's supposed to be applied.

What do you dislike?

The editor can be buggy with things like bullets overlapping images that they are next to.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Alternative engaging e-learning platform that brings training closer to the moment of need.

"Intrepids a game changer"

What do you like best?

The creativity and verve that Judy Albers has added to our team's effort to marshal the power of interactive learning is truly a game changer.

What do you dislike?

we'd love to move faster and our speed was primarily our own internal issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Taking a time-honored course and turning into a Learning Hub platform to teach skills that back in the day took almost a week to cover-we do so now at a fraction of the time and cost.

"Beautifu, but limited"

What do you like best?

It looks really good, and the templates are fairly easy to work with

What do you dislike?

I have some things I'd like to jazz up to make my learning interactive, but the platform sandbox is too limited to do so...

Recommendations to others considering the product

worth a shot -

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Love so many things but.....limitations are frustrating!"

What do you like best?

Easy navigation...clarity of structure....features like leaderboard, resource center, etc

What do you dislike?

Lack of flexibility in branding - really hard to easily get a look and feel we want - too many boxes confine us!

Too many answers of "you can't change that" or "that's too hard to change"....lack of a "meet up place" for users to chat in a community - not in a discussion thread but across the entire experience....lack of being able to work on a project simultaneously with others in the cohort.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Scalable digital leadership development solutions...scalability...easy to use digital platform
