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.
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.
My JoomLMS team is fantastic! They worked with me from the very start to ensure a successful training site. We had a great deal of customization work done and they fulfilled our every need. Their attention to detail and timely delivery has been incredible. I am very grateful for their expertise and friendly customer service. They made me feel comfortable and confident that we were going to deliver a great product. Today over 2,500 users are signed up for this training site and the customized reporting and management structure they created is working flawlessly!
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.
