Major up-leveled my trainings

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Soapbox was one of the most useful training tools I have used. Overall I would use this product daily or weekly.
Even though I don’t have access to it anymore because I only used the trial I am looking forward to talking my supervisors into buying it. It also made me make better training in my own because it’s a new way of thinking about training engagement backed by research and a lot of experience.

Pros:

This product made me think of trainings in a new way. I loved all the options for different activities to work with getting information using a variety of learning modalities. decreased my training planning time by more than half plus made them much more organized and engaging.

Cons:

The price was inhibitive for my small government funded program.

Thank you so much for this feedback! Our goal is to help people think in a different way! We're sorry the price was prohibitive. At the beginning of the COVID pandemic we dropped the price so maybe it is worth a second look?

Innovative and Great value

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: It really is designed to train your employees by communicating your company's strengths and encourage the user to calibrate the output to meet your needs and expectations.

Pros:

The software is initiative, creative and flexible. The strengths of the product lay in the basics that's it's designed to be useful and move your company forward, not just an app you use sometimes.

Cons:

Any feature I've missed had been adapted and added in updates. The team behind it is constantly working on improvements.

Soapbox is a time saver!

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Soapbox saves us time as well as creative energy by giving us the framework and activity ideas for learning sessions. Although we use our own branded PowerPoint slides, we can still use some of that suggested content as well. It is a tool that is well worth the money, just in time saved for us!

Pros:

There are so many things to like about Soapbox. On my team we have people with varying levels of experience in instructional design, and Soapbox makes it easy for all of us to use it to whatever extent we want. For some more experienced people, we may only use it for laying the foundation and getting ideas, but for less experienced people it may be used as the single source for creating learning sessions. I love that it factors in all of the elements of the session like the time and delivery method, and it's super helpful for creating learning objectives.

Cons:

My only criticism would be the lack of options for alternate activities. In my most recent Soapbox project, I didn't love the initial idea for an activity, and there were only 3 or 4 options for alternatives.

It is wonderful to hear that people of varying skill levels are using Soapbox successfully. We're always adding new activities so I hope that you'll start to see more alternative activities that work for your presentations.
