Our Approach to User Experience

The Absorb LMS user experience gives your learners the accessible and intuitive interface that will keep them coming back for more training, all wrapped in a professionally designed, custom branded style.


Create different experiences for different audiences

With Absorb LMS, you aren’t limited to a single user experience for all of your learners. Different learner groups can work in uniquely designed experiences. The interface that a learner sees can be determined by location, the group or department of the learner, and many more options. This means you can train your employees with one interface and have another experience for your customers.

We've seen our clients use this feature to differentiate the learning experiences for:

  • Employees vs. Channel Partners
  • Different Internal Departments
  • A Key Customer vs. Your Other Customers
  • Various Global Offices

Learning for all screens. Absorb from mobile to the boardroom.

Mobile ready? Check. We were one of the first to launch a fully responsive LMS optimized for your phones and tablets. On the go? Capture that learner experience in the palm of your hand with the Absorb Learn Mobile App. Compatible with both iOS and Android devices, Absorb Learn offers Single Sign-On (SSO) access to your catalog of courses, reflecting department-specific branding and empowering both offline/online learning.


Social learning. A 5-star collaborative environment.

Your learners become your strongest asset and advocates in the right social learning environment. Absorb LMS allows learners to communicate and collaborate with each other in a threaded commenting section and then rate the courses they've taken. Take advantage of a learners momentum by providing tailored recommendations of what courses to take next.

ILC browsing. A more refined enrollment experience.

Virtual or in-person, ILCs are foundational to your learning experience. Absorb LMS gives your learners the ability to browse in a view most conducive to the content, quickly search for a specific session, or easily refine results to narrow in on the right ILC for them.

Very impressed with Absorb LMS. The most progressive and intuitive platform I have seen to date. No other LMS allows you to brand the user experience to such detail and the user experience is highly usable and intuitive. Great execution of thoughtful design.

Public dashboard. Show more, do more.

The new Public Dashboard gives your LMS the powers of a CMS. Before your learners are required to login, you can offer up the content that makes sense to your business. Customize your experience to showcase your FAQs, News Articles, Featured Courses, Video Billboards, and more.

Selling courses? Use your Public Dashboard as your storefront.

Different audiences with multiple login requirements (SSO and credentials)? Your Public Dashboard can easily direct all your learners to the proper login.

Searching. Found.

The powerful search functionality built into the New Learner Experience gives your learners quick intuitive access to search and find the courses they're looking for. Using a simple keyword search or utilizing the refined search options, learners can explore courses on their own terms as they seek out their next course.

Communicate in your language and in theirs

We know that your brand goes beyond the colors and a logo. That’s why we let you customize how you communicate with your learners. Do you call your “Courses” something different, like “Labs?” No problem, we can adapt. You have control over more than 1500 terms, phrases and messaging templates. Toss in the fact that the Absorb LMS user experience is available in 25 languages and you can communicate with a global learner-base, on-brand.
