Save time marking assessments, Zero marking time

Save Time
Marking Assessments

Marking assessments manually takes time, lots of it. It takes three minutes to mark one lesson of 20 questions by hand. For 50 stores with 15 employees each, that is almost 38 hours spent marking one lesson.

With Lesson Desk, marking is instantaneous

Training material, re-usability for multiple languages

Save Money
Through Reusability

To facilitate training material in different languages, or with different subtitles requires different copies of the same training material, leading to high production costs.

Lesson Desk’s unique, layered compiler engine allows video, sound, language and subtitles to be combined and re-used without the need to recreate any material.

No Travel Necessary

With Lesson Desk, training material can be distributed, updated and reused on the fly, cutting costs and saving time.

Instant messaging for easy communication with trainees

Instant Messaging
