SkyPrep is an easy-to-use, cloud-based, online training platform, designed for businesses, and knowledge providers that want to train, test, and manage their employees or clients.
Creating courses is a simple process, and starts by uploading existing content such as PowerPoint presentations, training videos, Word documents or any other file type. Then, the testing platform allows users to create quizzes and tests with various question formats. Course building is as easy as picking-and-choosing from your repository of content and tests.
After inviting users to the platform, there are plenty of tools for managing, and tracking the activity, and performance of all your users. With real-time performance summaries, and analytic reports, you will always be informed of all the activity on your platform.
We also offer plenty of customization options to personalize your training platform. From custom domain names, theme, and logo, you can make your users feel like they are doing their training directly from your own website.
We are a midsize municipal government agency and purchased SkyPrep for our LMS about a year ago. As the administrator for the LMS, I have been thoroughly impressed. The system has a very intuitive and user-friendly UI, our users require very little training to use it. They open it up and say, "oh, ok, I see my training pending my completion here. Seems easy enough." And that's it. Also from an admin side, its easy to use - I've trained several non-technical users on the admin role and I get similar feedback on ease of use. We also have a few 'group managers' who have security rights somewhere between admins and users.
It's inexpensive, which is perfect for us with a limited budget. Several departments have created their own content in Powerpoint or videos, and we've launched it to users, and the group manager monitors completion. We partnered with external content providers as well, - that's where the big money seems to go, so its been more cost effective to develop our own, which is easy to do with their content creator tool. But SkyPrep accepts content in so many different formats, that we've been able to leverage various webinar recordings, Youtube videos, even DVD content and internally-developed policies in Word and PDF.
Reporting is pretty simple - my only complaint is that the reporting options are somewhat limited. However, I sent an email to the service team making a request for an additional filter option, and - wham! They added it to my account. I was very impressed that they listened to my feedback and were so accommodating. That additional report has made my job much easier.
Another thing I've been thoroughly impressed with is their frequent releases and enhancements. It always seems like they're adding some new cool feature that again makes my job easier - seems like the frequency is somewhere between monthly and quarterly.
I still email my original contact on occasion with a question or comment, and he always gets back to me within a day.
Really, really pleased with SkyPrep.
The ease of creating the course is excellent. The ability to upload videos, documents, exams is user-friendly. Searching for users and viewing their course history, and the details of the individual course items is fantastic. I would have given more starts for features & functionality but I think our use of the system pales in comparison to your other customers and we have not had the need to take advantage of full features available to us. The value is good considering the time savings from an in-person course. Thanks and keep up the great work!
ease of use, ability to share classes with other potential customers

The ability to have our managers track their team members' learning, ease of scheduling classes, course materials stored in one easy to access place, the specific permissions we were able to set up for users and managers, the reporting features, the "helpdesk" features/support, and the user-friendly design.
The customer support via SkyPrep has been phenomenal in everything from developing requested software features, "helpdesk" accessibility when we have questions, explaining things clearly, and being positive and upbeat in every interaction via E-mail or phone.
For any kind of software (LMS or non-LMS), there are always features you could dream up. I think that the value you get from the investment you make in the SkyPrep software is definitely worth it. (We have the Enterprise Plan.)

I have been on both sides of the IT tech/user interface. I can enthusiastically and unequivocally say that I have never known an IT operation with a more positive can-do attitude than SkyPrep's. First, they have a stellar platform. But no platform is perfect and there are always features and options that might make it better. In other IT operations -- including the ones I have belonged to -- the attitude on the part of the tech people was very much we/they. "We (the tech people) know all. And wouldn't this be a great job if it weren't for all those users and customers we have to deal with." The attitude at SkyPrep is much healthier and ultimately much more constructive for everyone. If you have an idea for a feature, SkyPrep's approach is open-minded and creative. "Hmmm. Maybe that would be a good idea. And maybe it would be even better if we also did such-and-such..." I'm not saying the SkyPrep tech people don't have to prioritize and I'm not saying they can drop everything for every request you make, but they seem to think of customers as partners, as scouts for what the training market needs. So if you need more than a cookie cutter approach to a learning platform, I would make two suggestions. Number one, sign up with SkyPrep; most if not all the features you need are probably already there. Number Two, think of yourself as their partner in return by respectfully and appreciatively letting them know what you think would help them in their mission of making SkyPrep even better and better and better. And that's saying a lot.
Skyprep has allowed us to really streamline our training programs and be compliant with the industry standards that we follow. It's affordable, flexible, and great for our company.

Well-designed online courses can save companies thousands of dollars in employee training costs, however many businesses are hesitant to move their training courses online due to fears about technical issues and unexpected costs. SkyPrep is a web-based training platform that aims to alleviate these concerns by offering straightforward course building tools that even non-technical users can employ.
SkyPrep provides cloud-based software that allows employers and educators to create their own online courses. Developed for non-technical users who want to quickly build courses online, SkyPrep helps its users centralize their educational materials in a secure web-based environment.
SkyPrep is a cloud-based platform that provides users with tools for creating and organizing educational training courses online. Organizations are able to quickly build courses by uploading existing content—such as PowerPoint presentations, videos, and Excel files—and creating interactive quizzes and tests. Students and employees are then invited to participate in educational training sessions that take place entirely on the web.
Organizations that use SkyPrep benefit by being able to upload their course materials into a centralized environment, where they can be accessed 24/7 from anywhere in the world. Employees who telecommute are able to complete required compliance and safety training courses without stepping foot inside their home offices, while larger franchise organizations are able ensure that all employees have received a uniform education about their companies’ policies and procedures, regardless of their locations.
Educators and employers can upload any existing course content they’ve created directly into SkyPrep. SkyPrep accepts files including PowerPoint, Word, Excel, and SCORM content. Once the content has been uploaded, it can be dragged-and-dropped into any of a user’s courses.
To add new content to your courses, click on the appropriate course name and then click the “Items” tab. Choose “Add New Material,” and then select from a list of supported materials. Included on this list are many different files types, including PDF, Word, Excel, and HTML files, along with YouTube and Vimeo links. You can also create a link or embed a website.
Using the Exam Manager tool, users can create quizzes and tests for their students. Any test that a user creates can be dragged-and-dropped into a course. Users have multiple formats to choose from when designing their quizzes. Quizzes can be auto-graded.
When you create a new exam, you’re able to determine things like time limits and percentages that are required to pass the exam. You can also categorize your exam, and select how many times a learner can take the exam per course. Next, you’ll want to add each of your questions, choosing between multiple choice, true/false, fill in the blank, or short answer.
SkyPrep’s messaging and notification platform allows instructors to remind learners about upcoming courses and due dates. Depending on the settings an instructor has selected, learners can be sent automated email reminders whenever new content is available.
Compose a message to your learners from within SkyPrep’s platform. You can select which individual learners should receive your message, or you can elect to send a message to a certain group or everyone enrolled in a specific course. As a trainer, you also have the option to receive messages from learners in your SkyPrep inbox.
SkyPrep provides its instructors with the ability to download real-time reports about all of their learners. SkyPrep provides a wide variety of reporting options, all designed to outline users’ performance and analytics. The three main types of reports are user reports, group reports, and course reports.
Get access to a summary of all your courses by clicking on the “Data” tab along the top of the SkyPrep platform. Choose which type of report you’d like to build—courses, users, groups, or exams—and download the report. You have the option to download reports as CSV/Excel files or in Zoho Viewer.
Many students will pay to learn about topics in an online setting. SkyPrep provides educators with ways to sell their online courses to anyone, anywhere. In fact, learners can even switch the platform to access courses in their native languages. Instructors receive immediate payments whenever a user enrolls through the platform.
In order to sell courses, you’ll need to turn on SkyPrep’s “sell mode” feature. Click on the “Customization” tab from the homepage to begin this process, and then select “Settings.” When you check the box next to “I’d like to sell courses,” you’ll be able to start monetizing your courses to sell to students online.
