Triple savings

AcademyOcean's most basic plan starts at $300/mo, while LearnUpon is selling their product for €700/mo ($845).

In addition, the minimum contract length for LearnUpon is one year. This means you'll need to pay quite a lot of money in order to get started with the platform.

With AcademyOcean, you can choose a monthly subscription. This lets you try out the product and see everything it has to offer before making a larger financial commitment.
If it's important for your company to be able to create multiple separate educational portals, then AcademyOcean is the product for you.

Starting with our PRO plan, you're able to create an unlimited number of educational portals.

For example, you can create portals for your employees, customizing the portals with your brand's style and designating different ones for different cities or countries. You can also use separate portals to train clients. All of this in one account.

In LearnUpon, the number of portals you can create is limited and tied strictly to your plan.

Possibilities unlimited

When developing our pricing system, we made sure you wouldn't have to decide whether or not to educate certain people. By default, we have included 1,000 spots in each plan. This means that if you have our most basic plan, you can train 1,000 active learners for $300. And it's easy to increase this number without switching to a different plan.

With LearnUpon, the most basic plan gets you only 50 learners and costs $845. If your company has more than 500 employees, you'll have to go for the most expensive plan.

Educate everyone!

We took care to create a platform with a great user experience for all types of users, including administrators.

AcademyOcean boasts a record-high rating within the industry for easy of use (9.8/10) and an ease of admin rating of 9.6/10 (source: G2 Crowd).

This means that when you choose AcademyOcean, you'll be able to master the product easily and see your first results quickly.

Choose the product that's a leader in user reviews

Manage training efficiently

In AcademyOcean, creating separate teams for groups of learners is just the beginning of what you can do. You can also then set up automatic transitions for learners from one group to another.

We call this feature Smart Teams. You can use Smart Teams to create unique training paths for different learners — and automate them!

We care about your success

It's important to us that you be able to get as much value as possible out of AcademyOcean, and that you can bring as much success as possible to your business. We don't leave our clients to figure out the interface on their own — we help them as much as we can.

Before you get to work, you'll have a personalized training session with one of our specialists, who'll show you how to use the system and how it can help you with your tasks. Our specialist is also available to answer any questions you may have.

Afterwards, you'll receive preliminary access to AcademyOcean and our "Academy about Academies", which is an interactive educational course that contains the most relevant information about how our platform works.
This is a feature unique to AcademyOcean, which lets you personalize how you approach educating different users.

If you need some portion of your academy to be different for different users, you don't need to create separate lessons for them. Two different learners can see the same lesson differently, depending on the parameters you establish.

Adaptive (dynamic) content

With AcademyOcean, you can make your educational portal unique. Create your own interface text in different languages, using any symbols and emoji you want.
This tool lets you add informative text to images. Hotspots are points that users can hover their cursor over to reveal the name and description of some item in an image. This helps your learners learn material more effectively and quickly.

For example, you can visually display a merchandise display, office layout, or program interface and use hotspots to label important spots and provide tips.

Hotspots

Use the technology of the future in your training

With this tool, you can create copies of your content with synchronization across all copies. The original content and any copies are closely related.
AcademyOcean has a Security Center.

All plans offer basic security settings: copy-disabled text, limiting access by IP/domain, and strong learner passwords.

Our Premium plan and all higher plans offer advanced security features: two-factor authentication, email confirmation when registering, limits on the number of devices a learner can use, and watermarks for PDFs.

Your security is a priority for us

This module allows you to create lessons, courses, and entire academies in a matter of clicks. When you want to make changes, you won't need to edit dozens of lessons — you'll just need to edit one! AcademyOcean makes your life easier.
This helps you convey your brand's communication style and set the tone for your learners.

Enough learners, no matter which plan you choose

When we created our pricing plans, we didn't want you to have to choose whether or not to educate certain potential learners.

Educate them all! Each plan contains 1,000 spots by default. You can always add more as needed.

We want as many employees of your company as possible to be able to use AcademyOcean to work effectively and improve their knowledge and skills.
