Since we use JoomLMS we have more time to develop our courses because of the intuitive management of the system. Also our students enjoy with the intuitive face and handling when they take their courses. Another important factor for a company is the technical support. The technical team of JoomLMS helps us to grow with new customized features and can solve in a short space of time any technical issues you may have.
The Liszt-Kodály Society of Spain recommends you that before purchasing an eLearning platform for your business, just try JoomLMS. You will be able to experience by yourself one of the highest eLearning system that meets all your expectations.
Executive Training Centers was formed in 2001 and offered live, as well as online training in real estate. In 2005 we dropped in-class training and went totally online. Initially, we used an LMS developed by a local software company, but quickly realized it lacked the functionality we needed. This is when we began searching for a new LMS system. After reviewing a dozen or more, we chose JoomLMS.
The JoomLMS system was significantly more sophisticated than the system we were using. Certainly, we faced a learning curve. Once we learned how to work with the LMS, it proved to be much more user friendly than we initially thought. As it turned out there were many more standard features than we knew about before making a purchase.
Certainly, in every LMS there are standard features that are available in most. Our problem was that we provide training for licensing in several fields and across many different states of the US. The courses must be approved by both national organizations, individual state regulatory agencies and, in some cases, agencies of the federal government. Consequently, we needed extensive custom development. This is where the staff of JoomLMS proved to be outstanding. With my previous system I was used to being told the modifications I needed were not possible, or would be prohibitively expensive to install. When I posed questions to JoomLMS, they only told me how long it would take to do the modifications. Always a positive response! I think this is what I like best about working with JoomLMS. Over the years Helga, Dennis, and Maria have proven to be a valuable resource and I credit them with helping ProEducate succeed.

I administer a moderately sized educational website (instructional material, quizzes, and certificates). It is built on the Joomla!® platform and we have about 10K users with about 300 actively using the site at any given time. After much research and trail and error, I switched to JoomLMS about 8 years ago. Here are reasons why:
Cost is a big factor in our operation. If costs are not reasonable, we cannot continue to operate.
- The Joomla platform is robust, very cost effective, and can be administered by someone (me) with a moderate knowledge of IT, coding, etc.
- JoomLMS is fully functional out of the box and again only requires a moderate level of IT/website skills to administer. The software continues to be developed/improved over time.
- JoomLMS support is outstanding. It is timely, patient, and friendly.
- The fees are not insignificant, but they are fair, and they are scaled to the size of your user base. When it comes to paying fees, remember that you want a company to partner with that makes enough money to be profitable and stay in business. It would be a major problem for me if I had to migrate to another LMS system
We needed a learning platform that integrated with Joomla!® and Articulate, was simple to use - with the possibility of customisation and work-arounds when that was not possible. We liked the clean simple layout and ease with which students and administrators can find their way around.
Pros: In every instance that we had, where customisation was not possible, we were able to find a satisfactory work-around. For example, if students need to sit a final, external exam that is not part of the online training , the results can be manually added via JoomLMS. No other moderately-priced programme that we looked at was able to do this. This flexibility make JoomLMS far more powerful than is seen at first glance.
Cons: There is no user-based forum. Whilst the support is excellent and JoomLMS staff is endlessly patient and prompt at answering the queries, I do think that the exchange of ideas and work around that users have found could really benefit the community.
Advice to Buyers: In order to customise, and not get overwritten in an upgrade, a reasonable knowledge of Joomla and how it works is required. This is possible without an in-depth knowledge of php or hacking into core files.
The open-source platform of Joomla allows JoomLMS to be one of the most competitively priced systems available. It is consistently at the top of our Low Cost LMS options, regardless of delivery of number of users. At the same time, however, Joom LMS delivers a wide array of features and functions found in much more expensive solutions. Although some features come with added cost. There is a robust assessment tool included in the LMS that allows for a vast array of testing and reporting options. For a nominal additional cost, you can also integrate a feature-packed social collaboration tool called JomSocial. JomSocial features a Facebook-like interface with groups, rich media sharing and messaging tools. The user-interface for JoomLMS can at times seem somewhat busy, as there is quite a bit of information and options on the screen at any given time. The pages and navigation are not as slick as many of the higher priced systems that are available. That said, users will get an awful lot for their money with JoomLMS.
We have been using this LMS since 2009 and to deliver e-learning to project and programme managers around the world. We have found the LMS to be very reliable, fully featured with very few problems. Any problems have been resolved very quick by the customer support team at JoomLMS
The JoomLMS team has been thoughtful and helpful throughout our implementation of our Online Training Campus. The team is easy to deal with and very professional. Since implementation of the JoomLMS solution we have realized over a ten-fold increase in the number of graduates from our training program versus our live training courses. This was done with very little cost and very little additional customization. The JoomLMS package is very well thought out and the developers actually listen to their customers and make improvements and enhancements to the product based on the input of those customers. We have been very pleased with our decision to implement JoomLMS and I fully expect to continue our relationship with them for a long time.
Why did we choose JoomLMS?Because we were looking for the most effective product on the market and Joomla offers one of the most powerful content management systems in the world which is used by amongst others Harvard University, University of Alabama in Birmingham, University of Notre Dame, EBAY and many more.In addition we were very happy with the software security features, with JoomLMS being one of the most secure open source software’s with complete security for the maintenance of confidential data.
JoomLMS Team followed my instructions and requirements strictly and showed perfect sense of quality and timing. Having such a professional team at my hand I was able to implement my own teaching method and reach such a success. They showed an enormous amount of knowledge and skills on eLearning technology consulting me on usage of standard LMS features implemented in JoomLMS and developing a number of unique features for me. According to my request the team developed special online keyboard for the projects, taught JoomLMS to count learners' mistakes and provide special activity reports. Now the TICKEN e-Learning concept expands abroad and faces new challenges. Some languages have special symbols or several keyboard layouts. JoomLMS Team supports the project totally to adopt the touch-type course for every country and language customizing the online keyboard and building-in games to the learning process. The project is introduced to schools to give a chance to learn touch-typing in innovative and challenging way for more kids. JoomLMS reports statistics upon classes giving teachers a motivation factor. Thank you for your efforts, JoomLMS Team. Let's support online education for children and adults together.

Great Job! and Thanks Again!
I would like to commend JoomLMS for excellent service and technical ability in programming a custom component for my company.
They provided me with superior service and have an excellent liaison between the programmer and my organization. They have been informative and quick to respond with all of my inquiries. The programmers/developers have once again shown why JoomLMS is the best company for Joomla! components. The program works exactly to my specifications. I am impressed. I look forward to continuing our working relationship between myself and JoomLMS.
We worked closely with the team at JoomLMS over a four month period to develop a highly customised version of JoomLMS for one of our most important clients. Despite our demanding specification, tight deadlines and many additions to the original plan, the team where always easy to deal with, professional and highly responsive. In particular I would highlight their ability to solve complex problems quickly and without fuss. There were no issues concerning our different native languages and the project was delivered to plan and on budget. Well done to all at JoomLMS and we look forward to working with you on future projects.
Thank you for your great service, component, and patience ;)
I'm working all day with your component making my online courses to my clients and every day I think your component is the best option that I can choose.
Thank you another time.
