Users seem to really like navigating around Grovo with its slick transitions from screen to screen. Other users note that if you find or create the right training content, you can essentially go hands-free with training of new employees – just set the due date and notify the employee. Then you can focus on other tasks and you’ll get a weekly email that lets you know where each learner stands in the process. Users overall find it very easy to use. Other users note how much they appreciate built-in reporting and notification tools. Some users note that they first stumbled across it while looking for specific content to incorporate into their LMS, as Grovo is becoming known for its 60-second training videos, then realize they like its interface better than whatever LMS they were using before. In the words of one user, “Grovo’s platform is the most intuitive LMS that I’ve had the pleasure of working with.” That’s a pretty powerful statement that’s worth examining for yourself.
One user noted having problems with post-chapter testing, but that Grovo quickly resolved the problem. Another user noted that the biggest drawback to Grovo is its lack of gamification in the form of rewarding learners with badges and such. Gamification is such a no-brainer these days that it’s surprising Grovo missed the mark on it.
Users seem to really appreciate Grovo’s look, feel, and functionality. The only serious complaint is its lack of gamification, which does seem like a serious oversight in the 21st century.
