We are currently ramping up nicely with iCohere. We've built up several training modules by repurposing existing webinars; eventually, those modules will be grouped into online courses.
So far, both the iCohere platform and the service have been excellent - flexible, easy to learn, and feature rich. I'm very pleased with our progress so far; in addition, iCohere has been an important part of our sales pitch to grantors, and it seems to be working!
I've been actively seeking out and using your online learning resources - they are excellent!
It provides a fully integrated solution to our training and technical assistance needs, including webinars, communities of interest, virtual meetings/conferences, and online/on-demand courses. It is much more economical in terms of staff time than trying to work with stand-alone solutions that operate differently and require enormous amounts of back-end labor to jury-rig and coordinate.
iCohere is so feature rich (that's a compliment, not a complaint!) that it can be somewhat daunting at first. However, I recommend: (a) taking full advantage of the excellent online training materials in the iCohere Academy; and (b) prioritize your goals and build out your iCohere content incrementally focusing on your most highly valued goals and objectives first. As you succeed with each module, your confidence and competence will grow apace.
The support team at iCohere is excellent and provides a diversity of resources to help you succeed. I prefer to use the online training webinars in the iCohere Academy, but one of my staff prefers phone calls or emails to solve problems. Both of us are very pleased with the answers we get, whichever method of learning/communication we prefer. Nicely done, iCohere Support Team!
We so appreciate your review, Jeff. Serving small-staff, high-results organizations is something we are passionate about. It is true that the iCohere platform is so feature-rich that it can seem daunting at first. That really is one of the core reasons we stay so involved with our clients -- to ensure every client ramps up smoothly and that they achieve their objectives quickly. We know that you and JRSA have big plans with iCohere, and we are thrilled to be your partner in bringing those plans into reality. Thank you!

I first used iCohere 10 yrs ago for about a year to meet short-term needs of a small start-up organization. For a more substantive effort getting underway, recently subscribed because the brilliance of the integrative core design remains and such a full spectrum of new features are built around it as well as all the internet technologies now available. It seems its designers have thought of everything in advance in the most practical and forward-looking ways. Support is personable and fast in answering questions. User documentation is thorough and reliable. I'm very happy to be back using it and looking forward to exploiting all its features.
It reflects real-world knowledge of how people/groups work, what they need to do good work and communicate .
Its design is integrative, e.g., recognizing how information and roles are interconnected, and thus it links resources for maximum accessibility with user-defined controls on what's needed where.
Its design seems to have "thought of everything" - which gives me features as a user that are not only what I expect, but also that give me new ideas for what I can design in.
I haven't run into any things I don't like.
My main advice is that iCohere can be trusted to be absolutely thorough and forward-looking in ground breaking ways. After my first use of it 10 years ago, I continued to get all its product updates, and watched its progressive evolution into online conferences, LMS, etc. Its design is impeccable, and they never rest from continuing to innovate ahead of the curve. And nothing new gets released without the most thorough testing, another aspect users can trust.
Sara what a terrific review and what a thrill for us to be working with you again! There aren't many learning/collaboration platforms that have been around for 15 years -- one of the great things for us is when someone comes back! I also really appreciate your mention of our thoroughness with testing & support -- a somewhat lost art these days on the internet, and something we value & invest in deeply and always will. Again thank you! ~Lance
