Domo is not an LMS—or is it?

Version 1

If a customer is looking for a learning management system (LMS), there are a number of elements or requirements they may use to decide on a platform or system. The customer may need to deliver off-the-shelf content they’ve previously purchased, to create a SCORM course, or to create learning or onboarding pathways for employees.

Domo + CourseBuilder give our customers the ability to meet a majority of these needs. CourseBuilder is a free, easy-to-use desktop app for building and publishing training courses/modules, which few LMS packages offer.

CourseBuilder uniquely offers customers the following, which most other systems or platforms can’t:

  • The ability to access or download and then customize Domo training content for their own teams.
  • The option to create any training app they want and publish it into Domo, and then share it with anyone, anytime via Domo (without the help of an expert user or developer). 
  • The option to track their training app users' behavior in Domo via Google Analytics and custom reports.

There are limitations to the Domo  + CourseBuilder system. For example, if the customer wants a system designed to allow for automated assignment of courses and email messaging on a timed schedule for those assigned training, Domo + CourseBuilder isn’t quite there yet (but, adding this ability is on our roadmap).

To help customers understand whether CourseBuilder + Domo will meet their needs, the following list describes features or functions typically available with an LMS:
