What are the best aspects of this product?
Halogen provides more opportunities than you can possibly wish for, I'm telling you. You get the Learning Module, present it to your employees, and you will see how everybody in the company will start loving it. I am an incredible fan of its customizable Learning Units/Paths because they streamline the needs of my department and the organization in general. The numerous E-Learning bundles allow me to mix e-Courses with Instructor led trainings, which is a unique combination I didn't have before. Then, every employee has its own Development Plan, where all units are listed and associated to indicate his status, flags, and parameters. Oh, it would take me days to tell you all the good stuff Halogen could do for you.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
It is a great system, but I'm struggling to embed learning paths within each other. The idea behind it was to create a single learning path for the department by importing 'New Hire' content from specific paths, but that was not possible. I am still looking for a solution to this problem, and I am compensating with Business Rules and Catalogs in the meanwhile. Decided not to give up on my idea, I shared it with the developers during the last user conference, not so much because of me, but because of the many future users that will face a similar problem.
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
We are creating job-specific courses for all of our employees, and that's a lot of work. We have to build each level of experise in every department separately. When working with Halogen,I make use of a specific 'Learining on demand' environment, where learning information is displayed at any moment for employees to access it. They do this from the office or from home, and it makes me glad to see how willing they are to learn.
