Functionality
Beaucoup de fonctions, mais pas si facile à configurer si vous êtes un "débutant Joomla". Mais le support est là pour vous aider.
Ease of use
Globalement correct, seul l'ACL (droits des utilisateurs) présentait quelques bogues. L'éditeur de cours mérite d'être amélioré.
Support
Très utile et ouvert à l'aide extérieure (pour les traductions).
Documentation
Extension bien documentée , à partir du moment où on comprend l'anglais.
Les différents aspects du composants sont évoqués, très clairement.
Value for money
Tarif un peu élevé mais l'ensemble des fonctions et l'interaction avec les extensions tierces vaut son prix.
I used this to: Création d'une plateforme de cours en ligne en naturopathie (projet client)

Great Support so far



Posted on 22 September 2020
Functionality
I find it a little clunky, but workable. I would love a few simple tweaks, like being able to copy a lesson into other modules.
Ease of use
You need to be able to figure things out a little, as it's not 100% user friendly.
Support
Excellent support - my questions were answered and any issues were dealt with very well.
Documentation
It's reasonable, but I think it could be more thorough in drilling down to specifics.
Value for money
Excellent value for what you get, I'm very happy with the value aspect.
I used this to: building my HQ (Holistic Intelligence) online courses on my own website - you can see free modules on eoinscolard.
Functionality
The best part of Shika is an amazing team that continues to listen and respond to ideas for improving the user learning experience.
Ease of use
Demonstrated commitment to resolving our identified pain points.
Support
Exceptional support. Really cares and responds to issues in a timely manner.

Documentation
Documentation isn't always easy to follow but continues to be improved.


Value for money
Great value for the money. Provides a lot of options for learning.

I used this to: We use Shika for delivering leadership training at Campus for Communities of the Future.

Documentation
Value for money
Great value for money. You get everything you need to have an LMS plateform and much more.
I used this to: We use this extension for our LMS plateform. We add our courses and give it access via our web site. The use of the single sign on and the api are very helpfull.
Functionality
Every think works well. Would love to see a bit more reporting available.
Ease of use
Very simple to use and lean. Would love to see some a hover helper on some options instead of having to search the meaning in the do.
Support
Support is fantastic. The team is responsive and bugs are quickly squashed!
Documentation
Would like to see a bit more documentation directly in the application (hover with explanation) on some options.
Value for money
Excellent! We have tried other LMS, even outside of Joomla and Shika has reasonable pricing model for our type of business.
I used this to: We have thousands of users that use the LMS and everything works well. When we had bugs, the support team was responsive.
Functionality
More and more features are added to Shika - and, best of all, SCORM packages are supported
Ease of use
Quite easy to get used to when you already have some Joomla and Moodle experience
Support
Excellent support - I had trouble installing Shika at first due to my server environment, and tech support has been very helpful.
Value for money
Excellent - there is no restriction as to the number of users who can enroll in Shika courses.
I used this to: Study purposes - i.e. testing different kinds of e-learning modules
Functionality
Shika competes with more mature open source LMS applications very admirably. Current functionality allows for sophisticated learning portals
Ease of use
There is a learning curve here especially if you have used other LMS systems. Shika has an intelligent workflow and nice interface.
Support
Support is exemplary. These are Joomla experts with a great product and superior support system. They are communicative and responsive.
Documentation
Documentation is good and combined with their support you won't get stuck.
Value for money
Best value for the money for a Joomla LMS based system. The cost of ownership makes for a terrific return on investment.
I used this to: I use this for my client who runs an online learning portal for leadership training. They started out using Moodle/Joomla, moved to JomSocial/Guru and now have settled on Shika/EasySocial combination. This is the winning combination after much previous grief.
Functionality
Many, many settings and possibilities. Great for everyone for provide free or payed learning courses.
Ease of use
As every software we had to invest time to get into the functionality. But after few days working with all seems fine.
Support
Support answers regularly during 24h this is a really great value.
Documentation
No things are missing, but support answers also things we haven´t seen in docu.
Value for money
The price is high, but we have payed courses so it´s only a calculation thing.
I used this to: We provide few free and payed learning courses on our Joomla homepage.
Functionality
Компонент имеет очень мощную функциональность. Я смог освоить 20% пока. И JTicketing нужно включать в комплект, если есть такие уроки!
Ease of use
Использовать компонент действительно очень просто. Я научил работать в нем всех преподавателей.
Support
Поддержка огонь! Не успеваешь написать вопрос, уже ответили и помогли!
Documentation
Документация слабовата. Некоторые моменты в описании уже не актуальны. Также нужно продолжить работу над локализацией на другие языки.
Value for money
Отличный продукт за реальные деньги! Вложенные средства отрабатывают себя хорошо!
I used this to: ?????????????? ???????? ? ??????????? ????????. ??? ???????? ??????????? ??????. ? ? ??? ??????? ? ??????? ???????? ?? ????? ??????????!
