JoomlaLMS is a cloud-based learning management system that offers training, self-assessments, testing options, and conferencing tools. The system is built on top of the Joomla! CMS and can also be deployed on-premise for organizations that prefer to store their data on internal servers.
The solution offers professionals and organizations with a scalable e-learning platform that is suitable for professional training and online education. JoomlaLMS is also useful for developing and selling instructional materials. Users have access to a multi-language interface, guest access, a searchable course catalog and course import and export tools.
JoomlaLMS provides users customization tools so they may modify course materials and add logos, colors and themes. The solution also offers information security features. In addition, JoomlaLMS is compliant with SCORM standards.
Support is provided through an online help desk portal. JoomlaLMS can be purchased with yearly and annual licenses based on the number of users.
More and more people are turning to more economical solutions like online training and the younger generations are accustomed to using their computers, technology and the internet for educational purposes. I was fortunate to have connected with someone who was a specialist in the field of online training. He had implemented many Joomla Learning Management software installations and was already consulting with many other large educational institutions and corporate clients in the Western US. He was very open about his experiences, he didn't want to tell me which platform I should go with, he shared all the possible options with me. However, when I pressed him for a recommendation, based on his experiences he highly recommended JoomlaLMS. Normally I prefer to farm out work like this to someone who is an expert. In this case however, I decided that I wanted to understand the capabilities and the limitations of the software. Quite honestly, the majority of the workload is related to the creation of the actual e-learning modules and materials not the JoomlaLMS software. JoomlaLMS is merely the engine that drives the online programs once they are created. There is an abundance of user friendly tutorial videos on Joomla LMS You Tube Channel and the JoomlaLMS website has a help section for users as well. In cases where a glitch has been encountered or I've been unable to find a quick answer, the support staff have been helpful and accommodating. The first week the site went live we landed our first client and our online training business became international! The Sales Advantage is no longer 100% dependent on work schedules and we are no longer restricted by geography. Online learning has added a new dimension to the business, another revenue stream and option that we can offer clients for their training needs. At first glance, for a smaller business, there can be some sticker shock when considering at the annual subscription fee. I took a risk based on the recommendation from someone that I trusted. As I have come to fully understand what I have purchased, I am blown away by how robust and feature rich Joomla LMS is. So many companies offer outrageous service support contracts for the most basic needs. With more complex installations I can imagine that this is necessary. In my case there has been the odd need for support and the JoomlaLMS support staff have answered my questions in a timely fashion, supported the product and I have not incurred additional costs.

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 JoomlaLMS 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.
1) The Joomla platform is robust, very cost effective, and can be administered by someone (me) with a moderate knowledge of IT, coding, etc.
2) JoomlaLMS is fully functional out of the box and again only requires a moderate level of IT/website skills to administer. The software continues to be developed/improved over time.
3) JoomlaLMS support is outstanding. It is timely, patient, and friendly.
4) The fees are not insignificant, but they are fair, and they are scaled to the size of your user base. When it comes to paying fees, remember that you want a company to partner with that makes enough money to be profitable and stay in business. It would be a major problem for me if I had to migrate to another LMS system.
No significant cons.

Easy for the User to manage
Large array of growth options for building out the interface
Great CSS control
Great options for changing the face of the site anytime you wish
Overall, this is a super software and should be used by anyone wanting a presence online
Management and updates / upgrades are not difficult but can be time consuming depending on your particular set up
Overall, costs for managing this type of interface are very reasonable
I have very little negative to say about this product. It's really a great product. The only thing I can say negative is sometimes the components, modules or plugins are not always supported when they are free so I would recommend buying only licensed products from long time vendors.

I have been working with Joomla LMS for about 4 years know and I can say that they have been instrumental in my company success. My students love my web site and the professional experience they have when they use it. I have asked for several customization and they will get it done. There is nothing they were not able to do to make my business grow. They are great in every way, product, process, and people.
The out of the box product is great and is always improving
Customer support is very attentive ready to help at a moments notice
Customization are spot on. whatever you need them to create it will get done at a very fair price
None that I can think of. product is working great.
