Considering Juno Journey for your company's L&D efforts? You're in the right place!In this review, we discuss what Juno Journey is, some of the key features, what people like based on real reviews, and give you a great alternative 😉

What is Juno Journey?

Juno Journey offers both an LMS and LXP. As you’ll see below, their LMS offering focuses on building a central hub for a company’s L&D efforts and using that to create learning pathways for people.Juno LXP, on the other hand, seems to bring courses and resources from content providers to the table, while also focusing more on the delivery of personalised learning recommendations and skill tracking.

What do people like and dislike about Juno Journey?

Based on online reviews from platforms like G2 and Capterra, here are some of the things Juno Journey customers like about the platform.

  • The ability to organise knowledge in a central place and make that easy to find/searchable.
  • Personalised suggestions and recommendations based on people’s goals and skills.
  • The variety of courses and resources available on-demand and the ability for self service learning as a result.
  • The ease and ability for building flows and pathways for employees, giving them tailored development content.

When it came to dislikes and frustrations with Juno Journey’s offerings, there were a few common themes.

  • The variety and volume of courses was also flagged as an issue, with the difficulty of finding specific and relevant content a common theme for people search through Juno’s library.
  • Several users flagged an adjustment period or learning curve for understanding how the platform worked.
  • Part of that could be linked to the UX of the platform, with some users flagging that this left something to be desired. Reviews reflected issues with both mobile app and desktop versions.
  • Lastly, reporting was something that cropped up in reviews, with limitations around analytics holding some Juno Journey users back.

A word to the wise… don’t get caught in the more content is always better trap

Access to more content doesn’t make people more likely to find relevant content, apply it in moments of need and influence their performance.The opposite is normally true.It’s something we saw in Juno Journey’s reviews, but with more than 1 million courses at people’s disposal, it’s easy for people to feel like they’re searching for a needle in a haystack. Especially when they’re searching because they’re currently facing a problem that needs solving. At HowNow, we call this is the content-first approach, and it often means people are connected to content when it has no immediate relevance, making learning feel detached from work or like an unwanted interruption.The alternative? A skills-first approach! And you can learn how to build one in our free Death of the LMS guide.

What’s Juno Journey’s pricing like?

Unfortunately, there isn’t price transparency on Juno Journey’s website - you need to get in touch to find out about their LMS and LXP plans.They do offer Juno Lite, a free version for teams of up to 50 people, but this seems limited and more of a knowledge base option.
