Pros: Forma Lms is simple, intuitive and designed for the corporate world so much more practical and intuitive to use than other open source LMS designed for the academic world. The new responsive version responds to a need that we have been waiting for a long time. Now we hope that developers continue to optimize the project more and more by following the suggestions of users who use the LMS daily

Cons: More things I like about those I do not like about Forma Lms. The exchange of ideas with the team of developers in the forum is very active and above all reactive so even things that do not work now are always resolved within a reasonable time.

Overall: I was able to develop the online training business in my company, with great satisfaction!

Thank you Marilena, your review makes us very proud of our product!
The best part of the review is that thanks to Forma you could develop your business, that's one of the core reasons behind our project: the idea that if many people benefit from it, we'll benefit too.

We will always do our best to improve Forma every day: stay tuned, important news are coming fast!

Simply the best opensource platform out there.

Pros: Simple set up

Easy to manage as super admin

Quick

Scorm compliant

Multi site

Great support community

Simple reporting

Automated certificates

Learning plans

API's

Sell courses through paypal

Groups

The list is endless!

Cons: Currently the UI on mobile is non responsive, this is being addressed in the soon to be released update. Integrating with other platforms is not as easy as other LMS I have used though that's not to say it can be achieved it just may be beyond my skill set.

Overall: I manage all of my multiple clients training requirements through this platform

Pros: I love the flexibility of this product. Ideal for every division and company, easy to maintain, intuitive and quick to set up. The interface is modern and attractive, very user friendly system from admin to learner

Cons: User manual.

No built-in Authoring. Is not really a problem for me because i prefer creating high quality courses using external authoring tool.

Thank you Antony,
we're proud of your feedback!

We'll do our best to improve our customer support to reach the 5 stars and to include more tutorials and the user manual, as you suggest.

Built-in authoring tools: you already have the creation of tests, glossaries, polls, linkographies, html pages and other types of LO's.

We also have a plugin to upload videos and treat them like scorm objects, with the same type of tracking.

Powerful and Effective LMS, great community

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.

(update)
UI has been improved in the meanwhile, and bugs have been solved.
Administration has also been made much more intuitive.

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.
