100
Functionality

Many features to use

100
Ease of use

not easy without documentation

100
Support

The best support

100
Documentation

very complete

100
Value for money

The price is cheap for a complete LMS solution

I used this to: Learning platform website
100
100
Functionality

Its strength is the detailed functionality that it has.
Areas that were lacking seem to have been patched in later versions.

100
Ease of use

If you read the documentation then it is reasonably intuitive and performs well. It would be hard to make such a complex system easier

100
Support

Again support is good if you give detailed explanations of the issues and problems you encounter

100
Documentation

Documentation is extensive and comprehensive. Some features slip past but once pointed out they do add the information

100
Value for money

Its a Rolls Royce solution so does not come cheap, but clients have made good use of it and its paid for itself very quickly

I used this to: Main client uses it for an English language learning centre. They have produced over 20 detailed courses with many lessons in each.
100
Functionality

Supports unlimited courses containig lessons and assignments. Can be free or paid. Good reporting and tracking tools.

100
Ease of use

Easy for an LMS! Course creation very straightforward. Easy to add and monitor users.

100
Support

Always had a quick turnaround on any support queries.

100
Documentation

Documentation is good. Haven't used it much as the component is fairly self-explanatory as long as you are familiar with Joomla and LMSs

100
Value for money

Amazing functionality for the money. Standalone OS LMS doesn't offer the felxibility and corporate LMS systems are not at this price point

I used this to: Clients small and large - including learning.climate-kic.org. We mostly use scorm content, which plays and tracks perfectly. User management, reports and e-commerce (PP), certificates all have worked very well. This is now my go-to LMS for new projects as it works out of the box.
