What do you like best?
BlueSky eLearn's Path LMS has an intuitive and clean interface that provides a fantastic user experience for both customers and administrators. The platform is flexible enough to offer eLearning programs of various complexities, which is invaluable for associations challenged with keeping up with the eLearning world and member's demands. The eCommerce/shopping cart is one of my favorite features because it makes the purchasing process so simple and straightforward...just as it should be. I can set up promo and discount codes on-the-fly (even from my smartphone!) to provide excellent customer service in a timely manner.
Having implemented Path at two associations now (one with 20,000 members and one with 6,000 members), I can say that the BlueSky team is responsive and knowledgeable in regards to integrating their open API with various systems, and patient when it comes to helping their clients trouble-shoot. New features and improvements are introduced regularly, so you know they are also listening to their client's needs.
What do you dislike?
The only limitations I've encountered have been due to the lack of features in my association's AMS (Association Management Software) and that software not being able to maximize the extent of BlueSky's integrative capacities. This has resulted in a little extra reporting and data analysis on the staff side, but only due to our older member tracking systems being outdated by comparison.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Introducing Path LMS will bring positive change to your eLearning program. The platform helps make your learning opportunities more visually appealing and easier to find, your live events easier to register for, and courses easier to purchase. The first time I implemented this solution, the eLearning program saw a 164% increase in learners and a 130% increase in revenue from the previous year, making up for the cost of the platform is less than 2 months.
Another benefit is discovering that we've been able to utilize features of Path LMS to enhance some in-person courses, creating blended learning experiences and information "portals" with discussion boards for course cohorts. I've also found it very easy to train colleagues on the platform, which I attribute to its intuitive design and features.
