Stable and reliable LMS platform with an improvable UX

3.0 2 years ago

Comments: We chose this platform to address the request of our cliente who wanted a low price LMS platform.
After 3+ years of using with 2000+ users, we can say that the choice has not been so wise.
The user support we had to set up and the difficult maintenance of the platform made the costs grow significantly.

Pros:

The platform is stable and reliable. It has advanced features and can be integrated with other services.

Cons:

The platform is not easy to use and it doesn't have an overall pleasant user experience. Menus and functionalities are difficult to find and use for users and for the administrators.

Hello, thanks for your review, although I think it's a bit unfair. Forma is used by thousands of users and one of the main reasons is that it's much easier to use than Moodle, for example. Also it's unclear to me what kind of user support you need, we have several installations with thousands of users and barely any support request. If you think we can help you in any way, let us know.

Forma LMS great way to start your online learning tools

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Generally, I like it as my students don't have any problem using it and navigating it.

Pros:

there is no initial cost associate with it, where if you want to use WP or any platform you need to spend more than $200/year. I like the straight forward course creation and adding a registration page and be able to create courses and share materials between the students

Cons:

the difficult process for me was to figure out how to create a course and how they gonna look like for the end-user. I strongly believe Forma LMS needs to create a course to teach how to use the software. Also some of the options you need to integrate with, it would be great if it comes with it.
