Comments: Orion High School has been using Docebo since we opened in 2006. We are an accredited high school serving students from across the world. We recently upgraded to FormaLMS, and have found Forma to be a great addition to our school! Keep up the great work on Forma, you all! The team is helpful, kind, knowledgeable, and responsive to our needs. I could not have asked for a better, smoother transition! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Comments: After a LMS selection that lasted several months, including commercial and open source systems, We decided to start our new elearning adventure with Forma LMS, because of its overall very good corporate features.
Pro: General Stability and ease of Use for students, Reporting system, User Administration, Certificates Management, Player working fine with tablets and mobile, etc.
Cons: Graphical User interface could be improved, some minor bugs in several functions that need to be solved. Administration is not 100% intuitive, due to its great flexibility, though.

Thank you Stefano for your very nice review and for the insights you shared about your decision process. Concerning the cons you highlight: the GUI will indeed be improved in the next months, bugs will be solved. As for the intuitivity in the administration: there is a trade-off between power and intuitivity, we'll try to make administration more easily understandable without losing power.

Comments: If you're looking for an open-source LMS solution, this is a good place to start. Nice look&feel, although it still has to be improved and made even more contemporary, easy to use for both managers and users.

Its main pros are under the hood and will appeal to the most demanding HR managers: great user management, course management and subscription management. Most of the repetitive tasks can be done with just a few clicks. Customized reporting, integrated skills management, and much more. It can be improved by making it even easier to integrate with third party applications and by adding some features to the course materials management.
Teacher area can also be made a little bit simpler and more usable.

Nevertheless, if compared to similar open-source alternatives, most of FormaLms features stand out.

Customer service by the members of FormaLms' partnership is generally very appreciated by their customers.
