LMS for Beginners and Professionals

What do you like best?

To get started so easy, that would be my first convincing point. Beginners, who have no or just a litte experience with Learning Managment Software will be surprised. Creatng a lesson for example is more or less really intuitive, the most features are self-explanatory. This way you can create more complex scenarios very quickly.

For the advanced users are the most common features build in (evaluation, different types of tests, classbuilding, etc.).

What do you dislike?

Nothing really. Maybe, but i'd say every software has this problem, sometimes problems with new features if known as beta. But thats up to the user to test, no force :-).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The most commong problems are academic, there are many requests for eLearning in that area. But there are also a lot of company who use Chamilo in workshops.

Therefore we realized these workshops or gave instructions.

Awesome simple software with many possibilities

What do you like best?

Easy to use but also possible to create complex eLearning scenarios.

You have so many options, but also without deeper knowledge there are good results.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing i dislike, but in general newer versions should be tested thoroughly :-)

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you think moodle could be more easier, have a look at Chamilo.

More features, most modules/plugins are onboard (and therefore maintained to next versions from core developers).

But it has a totally different approach.

Also, you should have a look at the oogie - Powerpoint-Converter or the integration of bbb (bigbluebutton).

Both are really good to use, and give you further possibilities.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We provide several portals for medical education, language skills, computer knowledge, and many more.

In case of medical education, Chamilo is used to deliver new informations for nurses and doctors and the available portal is approved by Bavarian State Chamber of Physicians.

An easy and complete LMS to use.

What do you like best?

As a pedagogical engineer in one of the biggest university of France, I have to set many distance-learning projects as well as blended learning ones. Chamilo is so easy to use that it only requires a short time of learning for teachers to create relevant on-line courses. Simple to use, Chamilo offers yet many tools that allow teachers to enrich their pedagogical activities. From on-line and full distance learning, to blended learning as well as flipped classroms, Chamilo can support many different pedagogical projects.

What do you dislike?

I can't honestly find something I don't like about Chamilo as it is the tool I use everyday with many different people. Easy to use and very ergonomic, Chamilo offers all of what a teacher needs to create advanced courses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Feel free to test, it worths it as it is not a complex LMS at all and yet very powerfull.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Chamilo's community is very active and responsive. It's a pleasure to always have someone who can help if needed. The platform is in constant evolution so as to meet teachers and students needs.

Easy to install, easy to use, easy to manage.

What do you like best?

As an computer engineer Chamilo is easy to install and has a very low RAM and CPU consumption.

As an LMS administrator, no configuration is needed to start using the platform, integration with an existing information system is easy. If needed, you can activate or modify many options to fit your teachers' needs better.

As a teacher, you need a short traning to use the platform. Tool usage is intuitive, and when you get used to them, you can start using the learning path tool to put your course into an educational sequence. In a third step, click on Advanced tool prorperties to improve your Chamilo experience. Teachers can use the platform gradually without being lost.

Students don't need training. It's really an advantage when you have several thousands of students using your platforms, with new students every years.

[warning, technical speaking here ;) ] If you are a web developper, you'll really apreciate the use of the newest develloping tehcnology in Chamilo. Chamilo uses Silex components of the PHP Symfony framework (which is, of course, open sources too)... and it is just great. This is a guarantee of security, resistance, flexibility and easier coding contribution to Chamilo.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing i dislike. May be, as for many other softwares, care if you install a very new major version, test it on some of your courses before migrating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You are sure to make the right choice using Chamilo, beginner LMS Teachers usersand advanced ones will take advantage of the platform.

New LMS teacher users will easilly use it and will be able to improve there Chamilo experience gradually.

More experimented teachers will find the usual LMS tools, and will be able to use advanced tools and functionnalities at short notice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The developping community is really nice and skilled. It's a great advantage for us, we can developpe or improve new functionnalities for our teachers (new quizzes, new reporting chart...), and after a strong code review, these functionnalities can be added to the official platform distribution. We can share our work with over universities, or Chamilo developpers, and vice versa.

Great user experience and Human Resources Management features

What do you like best?

The user experience is very nice : I'm not wasting my time improving this, out of the box the user experience is really good.

I appreciate a lot the Human Resources Management features of Chamilo, the Skills wheel is really very useful and nice : it's easy to see who has what skills in the organisation.

Other point that I really appreciate is that the project is driven by a non-profit association, and that Chamilo is really open source, there isn't any parts that are non open source. We have here the same spirit that there is Drupal for example.

I also really appreciate the Scorm integration contents. It's very clean, while in other open source LMS it's not so visually clean, or not so ergonomic.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, just hoping that xAPI will be integrated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it's one of the best open source user experience elearning platform.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

LMS elearning consulting : my customers have their needs and projects, and I help them choose their LMS and make their projects effective. Recently, Chamilo is one of the LMS that corresponds a lot to the customers' projects. For example, for a company that wants to provide elearning contents to their employees, or for a company that wants to sell elearning contents.

Intuitive use and easy to configure and adapt to special needs

What do you like best?

The best for me in chamilo is that it is easy to install and understand it's code to create new functionalities.

It has a lot of configuration to adapt to many different kind of use. And if a specific extension is needed it's easy to implement.

What do you dislike?

I don't really find any thing I dislike. When ever I find something, I just indicate it an it gets corrected and on the next update everything is ready.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try, it's available and you will love it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my case I use chamilo to help my customer having a perfect fit for there project for learning institution to industy company. So since it has most of the functionnality the work lot is much lower and the final price for my client is better, so I get more competitive.
