The best-in-class eLearning platform that helps you transform how you train, engage, and educate your learners.
They are extremely helpful and responsive throughout the entire process. I researched over 100 LMS options when I began our school and I have never once regretted choosing Learnworlds.
I was very passively sympathized with but given NO ANSWERS and NO HELP. Finally, this morning, I fixed the bug, and told customer service they could close that ticket.

Excellent solution to create and sell courses
I got rid of maintaining my WordPress website since LearnDash does this for me now. The creation of courses is easy and the features offered are sufficient to start with. If you need more features you must upgrade. Their support is extremely fast and helpful.
White label and the App for your online school require an upgrade that is extremely expensive if you only have a few courses you want to sell.
Create TOP courses with beautifull inteface anc TOP marketing tools
Comments: My school change and i use the new fatures when they came out.
The support is incredible. Each time since 3 years, i got an a VERY RAPID answer. But the main difference with Learnworlds than other platform is the way they create the tools. It help a lot to win some time. You can use the layout they gave to you and just adapt it to your needs.Very professional and very usefull
All the soft is in english and i am french, so it was more difficult ti use at first than 360Learning (whicj is created in France), but I can translate all the interface so my website and the learning platform is TOTALYY IN FRENCH, which was totally necessaray.
The best LMS I worked with in years
Comments: Just the best LMS I used in years. It is so easy and quick to create a site, add courses and content and sell them.
It is really easy to get started, start your design from a wide choice of templates and create courses to upload your content. Learners can very quickly log in and get started. Really an awesome platform.
This is a LMS platform that has tons of options to allow academic like schools to get online and share courses, but also small and medium size businesses to sell their courses. One of the task is to go through a lot of options to turn off to suit your needs.
Alternatives Considered: Microsoft SharePoint, Docebo and TalentLMS
Reasons for Switching to LearnWorlds: The range of options is the widest for the best price
They sepnd a lot of time getting your business then ignore the problems
Comments: They are really responsive in the first couple of months so you can invest your time and money setting up in their system. Then once you're invested they ignore you and spend their time trying to grow their business model with new clients. If you have a long term plan for online learning I'm not sure they're ready to cater to any other businesses than their own.
It has a nice look, and is user friendly.
The software has problems. Tabulation of reports and certificates are something I have been going back and forth with the development and customer service team about, they have been incorrect. They apologise for the problems, come back to me every 4 days when they can be bothered and just say we are super busy growing our business due to the surge in online application due to Covid. That doesn't solve my problems, nor does it justify my subscription. My problems are still outstanding and months, weeks later they are still looking into it. Very poor.
Best value for LMS for a small school
Comments: I have loved my experience so far with LearnWorlds so much that I decided to build another site with it for a membership site that has a meditation library that I was hosting on WordPress & that I was going to develop an app for. If you think outside of the box you can use LearnWorlds to deliver content not just for courses because it's so flexible this is what I love about it. You can scale it way up and have really high level courses and programs or you can scale it way down and have just a simple tool for content delivery.
The things I love most about LearnWorlds are:1. The ability to import SCORM files and have them be part of the course delivery.2. The variety of assessments.3. The website templates.4. The ability to have all courses on a branded app.
There is a little bit of a learning curve to get started. I switched from teachable and teachable does not have the functionality that LearnWorlds does and it also has a really simple start up process. LearnWorlds has more going on when you login and so you have to process more information to get started. Overall I still find it really simple and intuitive. It's not complicated it's just a lot more to process at first.
Alternatives Considered: Blackbaud eTapestry
Reasons for Choosing LearnWorlds: I needed to switch because Teachable doubled the monthly fee after I had only been signed up for a month and I also learned about an increasing number of limitations in Teachable after I got started. So, I started searching for an alternative after that happened (on Capterra!) and this is when I found LearnWorlds.
Switched From: Teachable
Reasons for Switching to LearnWorlds: Price. Learnworlds is MUCH more affordable than the major LMS softwares out there.
Learnworlds LMS platform. Worth it or not?
AWOKO.ng is an edtech start-up giving students access to quality materials that they'll need to prepare for their exams and used to study in their academics.
Thus far, we have been able to do all these using the Learnworlds platform and are gaining serious traction in our country. It's been an experience.
The sitebuilder is great. It helps in creating easily navigable pages. The course creation process is simple and direct unlike other platform I've used. If anything, their support remains the best I've seen in a while.
The pricing for the learning center plan which most people would prefer is a bit too expensive especially for some of us in third world countries.
Alternatives Considered: LearnDash
Reasons for Choosing LearnWorlds: Thinkific was a good product but at the time I left had issues with some of the features I wanted. I was surfing the internet one day trying to see if any other options had the features I needed. None came close to Learnworlds so I made the switch starting afresh from learnworlds.
Switched From: Thinkific
Reasons for Switching to LearnWorlds: I didn't like having too many moving parts. I didn't want to be responsible for the technical stuffs backend. I needed to focus on scaling my business and let other things be taking care of by the pros
review of LearnWorlds by Mahjong Party
Comments: They respond with a lot of info and links anytime I have a question or don't know how to do anything. Customer service is prompt. Its a beautiful robust platform and looks so amazing. As well, I struggled at times with other platforms to get everything the way I like for my UI/UX and LearnWorlds met or exceeded all my expectations in that regard
It integrates the most features into what I want while giving me a ton of freedom to create the course how I want, to make my course look awesome, to integrate tons of media types
The price is high compared to other software for businesses / course creators just starting out but it offers a bit more than they do. The price is good and offers a lot for those able to pay a higher price.
Alternatives Considered: iSpring Suite
Reasons for Choosing LearnWorlds: I could not load up all of my media types I wanted to, I found the LearnWorlds UI/UX just really superior, I heard stories about how some other platforms will pursue your customer base
Switched From: Teachable, iSpring Suite, Absorb LMS, Udemy Business, Thinkific and Didacte
Reasons for Switching to LearnWorlds: iSpring came the closest to LearnWorlds and they have a great course authoring product but LearnWorlds offered unlimited courses / users / instructors - that is pretty well unbeatable whereas other similar platforms will charge after a certain amount of users or you are limited to how many users you can have in a year or your user has to purchase your product for a year instead of a shorter period of time... or you have to expel them from the product if they haven't used it for a while... its a lot to consider, I want my users to have lifetime access so LearnWorlds was the best
The most complete software for your e-learning business
Comments: Learnworlds are like part of your extended family. Not only do they have a great product they have a great team. Their support team are very helpful and will work with you on everything you need. If something isn't available, they will provide a workaround.
The student data that Learnworlds provides is second to none. Having the front-end website builder with all of the backend functionality and data is fantastic.
Customisation for our business specifically. i.e getting rid of some site-wide features.
Alternatives Considered: Teachable and Kajabi
Reasons for Choosing LearnWorlds: We were limited by our resources and not specialists in this area.
Reasons for Switching to LearnWorlds: They are the complete package. From the front end website, backend LMS and they were more advanced with their data and functionality for a more educational institute, where exams and certification is important.

Thank you so much for this 5-star review Luke! Your review means a lot to our team! We work hard to meet expectations like yours, continuously adding new features, and we are happy to hear we hit the mark for you! Thank you for the trust, we are thankful for customers like you.
A one-stop shop with all the tools you need to create a customized training platform.
Comments: With LearnWorlds, we were able to create a special website to ensure that all employees can access training courses and educational materials easily, which had a positive impact on increasing interaction and participation.
LearnWorlds is straightforward and easy to use, and you can get started with its great tools in no time. It is good that with LearnWorlds we get our own website to publish training courses, and it is good that all settings do not require any programming experience, as we can simply choose one of the ready-made templates and make the appropriate modifications that match our needs. I appreciate that the LearnWorlds support team is available at all times and constantly provides us with feedback and assistance that ensures we reach the required results. It is wonderful that the preparation of training courses and educational brochures is also done smoothly, and it is noteworthy that the process of publishing on the site is done easily. I also appreciate that LearnWorlds supports all languages, which always helps us expand our training programs to include all segments of our employees.
I can't hate anything about LearnWorlds; all the tools are clear and easy to use, and their support team is knowledgeable and responsive.
All in one eCourse solution!
Comments: Allows me to get my own online course website up easily and quickly and running with minimal effort.I started selling my first course in less than 24 hours!
Perfect package to easily and quickly get your own Learning Academy up and running with loads of resources to guide you to success
A bit expensive, base tier is works out more expensive in the long run depending on the number of courses sold per month. Additional features should be implemented in the base tier.
Excellent product at a fair cost
Easy to use, amazing customer service. Intuitive layout
Would like more video editing features. Otherwise great
Alternatives Considered: Teachable, Mighty Networks and Thinkific
Reasons for Choosing LearnWorlds: Price too high, declining customer service
Switched From: Kajabi
Reasons for Switching to LearnWorlds: Price, ease, 30day trial
Great Education Platform
Comments: Still learning the product but very happy with our test results. Very excited to offer a plat form for the team for learning and development.
The ability to brand your academy and offer online learning to the team. LearnWorlds offers us the ability to upload video learning, quizzes and offer the team an experience online that they can access from their home, office on their computer or their mobile devide.
There is a drip email feature that requires you to add the user 24 hours before you can send an email. This is a bit frustrating.
Alternatives Considered: Kajabi
Reasons for Switching to LearnWorlds: Ease of Use, Branding, price point options

LearnWorlds is the tool to teach the world
Comments: I don't have to employ at least 3 people to do the tasks that Learnworlds do for me. It is a perfect fit.
The solution is a perfect fit for me and my company. I have even though I am very picky never missed any features or functions. It is very well thought of down to the smallest detail. Professionals making the perfect tool for their peers.
The only thing that comes to mind if the fact, that I didn't make it myself - the biggest compliment ever.

Jeanette, thank you for this amazing review! Thank you for the trust, we are thankful for customers like you. Our support squad will be here for you every step of the way.
Very Poor Customer Service! Sad! Bad! Mad!
Comments: Even though the design is nice, and it only takes an experienced developer about an hour or two to set up their customized school site, I would not recommend this product based on the experience I've had with customer service. Paying for customer service is part of what makes the price high, and when I reach out for support, I seem to get nothing but "there, there's" and smug retorts. DO YOUR JOBS, PLEASE!
As a web developer, I have found this CMS very simple to use. Much simpler than Wordpress, Wix, etc. Easy to customize, and gives you a nice professional look.
Certain customer service representatives were RUDE! We had a glitch in one of our courses for over a month. Had to refund and turn away customers for a month as we asked customer service for help over and over. I was very passively sympathized with but given NO ANSWERS and NO HELP. Finally, this morning, I fixed the bug, and told customer service they could close that ticket. They then had the GALL to argue with me that their never-present development team had "just" fixed it (wow, what a coincidence!) and behaved quite rudely toward me!
Perfect for my new school!
Comments: Excellent! Customer support has clearly and kindly answered all my questions. Plus, they have so many easy-to-follow tutorials available online. Learn worlds provides a lot of templates and options for what you can add to your course. It's taken mean little time to learn it, but I LOVE it!
I love all the options on the platform and how professional it looks. I've had a couple of students try it, and they said it is super user-friendly and interactive. Also, the customer support is incredible. I've been trying different platforms for more than a year. Finally I found the one I've been looking for!
I'd love to see the option to add PPT directly (although SlideShare works great, too, but it's an extra step). I'd also love to be able to easily record and add audio to individual slides in PowerPoint. I've only found one other platform (Thinkific) that allows you to do this, and that was almost a game-changer for me. But I'm so happy with LearnWorlds for everything else.
Excellent Host for Virtual Learning
Comments: This tool has been an excellent learning platform that has allowed us to take our on-campus classes into the world.
This software works well with CurrikiStudio, which we use to design interactive learning activities for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This feature allows us to make accessible content on the outside and insert it into a beautifully formatted page.
As with anything, it takes practice to learn to use this tool effectively. For example, understanding how to make fillable field certificates was tricky at first, and though I figured it out, the explanation was laborious.
Comments: Great product that we use daily!
LearnWorlds is easy to use, has most of the features you want and great customer service. They continue to evolve to meet the needs of customers.
Need more copy/paste features for content. Cannot get users engaged on discussion forums.

Ana, thank you for taking the time to leave a review for LearnWorlds! Thanks for the useful feedback which we have shared with our team. We are always taking into consideration our customers' feedback and, wherever possible, implement it in our frequent updates. Stay tuned!
Clean, Easy to Use Platform
Comments: We have had a great experience with this platform and the customer support is fast and very helpful.
This platform has been a great tool for us to host our on-demand video training as well as the digital version of our curriculum. It is easy to use on the back end and simple to navigate for the user.
Some customizations are a bit clunky or can only be applied to all courses... a little more freedom in the design without knowledge of HTML would be a nice upgrade, but it works nicely with what features it has.
LearnWorlds: useful, smooth, intuitive.
LearnWorlds is very easy to use and smoothly presents its different intuitive functionalities. We use it as a database for all our project results and as an online platform for our learners. Its built-in analytics are also a big plus to keep tabs on our learners and their progress. The website builder is also a great feature that we have integrated into our project. If there is an issue, LearnWorlds is very fast to try to help.
Due to the many available features it can take a while to fully understand the potential of LearnWorlds.
First Time User
Comments: My primary mission has been accomplished - setting up courses that require individuals to complete trainings in order to receive certificates of completion. Now that my initial experience has been championed, I look forward to increasing my course library significantly.
Primary attraction was ease of use, especially for a neophyte. I essentially set up my own learning website with very little assistance needed due to the user-friendly instructions.
The type fonts were a little small on instruction pages but not an insurmountable issue.
Fast and easy designing learning website
Comments: I have less than one year experience with learnworlds, uploaded some of my courses, overall had good expriences.. I had some tecnical problems and they solved it.
Support team replies quickly about quetions.
I think it needs a grouping directory to includes a series of courses at course catalog or landing page
Learnworlds in South Africa
Comments: Learnworlds is truly innovative in its approach to providing a flexible and functional LMS platform at a really affordable price (even in SA), which is tied to Rand/Dollar exchange rate). I am based in SA, and the support (via email) has been really good. However, there are some limitations with the Currency component and payment options (for a SA business)
Social and community learning functionality - learners are able to engage each other and faculty via the social media community set up. Learners are kept up to date on any school happening. The e-book functionality enables learners to actively engage in note taking and summaries. The learner can highlight content and make notes, which are then stored and linked to the relevant content which the learner can easily
Not as flexible on the design functionality. Users are limited to fairly cumbersome templates, and there is a lot of "dead space" between sections. The user is unable to trim this "dead space" and make the space more streamlined.
Faultess customer support
Comments: Can not rate my overall experience highly enough.
The platform is intuitive to use, but when I need help, I get emails answered in multiple time zones in a timely manner (normally within 4 hours) and often with screen shots of my course as the example. This is so important in our early use of the system.
The gamification is still a beta and needs further development. I use Zapier and Badgr as a work around.
This a true gem LMS for anyone and everyone
1) Unlimited learners and unlimited courses ! 2) Mobile ready courses 3) Integation options with 5 different payment gateways including 2Checkout , Stripe , Paypal and Shopify 4) Option to convert your LMS to native android and apple app with some extra fee. Good for eventual scaling . 5) Very easy to build courses on this platform 6) Very agile customer support
They reduced the flexibility in pricing one's courses as this "investment" also has to be considered. Although in higher plans, there is no transaction fee, it's still a pain for small entrepreneurs to start their journey with learning words.
Great e-learning platform for Nonprofits
Comments: We've had a great experience so far!
LearnWorlds was easy to use and an attractive and smooth experience for our learners.
A few features are accessible in unexpected locations. I had to dig around a bit to find them.
Alternatives Considered: Mighty Networks and Thinkific
Reasons for Switching to LearnWorlds: Great price with all the features we needed.
