Pros
It has a platform that is easy to use, quick to learn, very stable for projects with a large number of users, and surrounded by a network of very competent official service providers.
The best thing of Chamilo is its usability. The great majority of our users require little or no support in setting their online courses and start using them.
Good alternative to systems like moodle, simpler to admin and easy to learn.
Cons
Lack of updated user manuals. Missing (for me) some useful features.
It is often not that simple for students to navigate. No synchronous collaboration possible.
I think about difficult is to use Chamilo fóruns, because bugs on design, for exemple.

The best and most effective PHP e-learning platform

Reviewed 3 years ago

I really loved using chamilo when compared to other e-learning platforms

Pros

It was very easy for me to install using softaculous and then setting up the platform was easy as well. Chamilo has all the basic tools for an e-learning platform. Their authoring tool is top-notch and has all the flexibility to make course authoring very easy.

Cons

I had difficulty changing the template and there is no much tutorial on the web on doing so.

Vendor response

Hello Chukwuemeka, thanks for your feedback. We love to hear your experience with Chamilo has been sucessfull. Warmest regards

Chamilo for language learning

Reviewed 3 years ago

Chamilo has a big potential, but still there is a lot improve, to make it be much better.

Pros

I use Chamilo a lot with my students and think it has a lot o very interesting features, for e-learning.

Cons

However, some things could be improved. I think about difficult is to use Chamilo fóruns, because bugs on design, for exemple. Also, exercises could be more easy to organize by cathegories: when we have many it is a little confuse from where to chose. Orther features could be improved too. It is also quite difficult to find help and valuable information about some procedures.

Vendor response

Hello Jorge. Thanks a lot for your review. It really helps us to keep working on Chamilo to improve it. Regarding your comments just a quick note to let you know that the current version of Chamilo, 1.11.14 allows "categories" for exercises and the forum is free of bugs. Please upgrade to teh latest version to get the best out of this software. To get free help you can use our free resources:...

An alternative to Moodle but graphically not that appealing

Reviewed 3 years ago

A decent LMS with some valuable features but lacks collaborative possibilities that Google and Microsoft offer in their suites.

Pros

Ability to use audio in quizzes, ability to recyle lessons, ease of use to set up classes, mulitple teaching possibilities.

Cons

Graphically Chamilo stays in the past. It would be better if it grouped icons together into menus. It is often not that simple for students to navigate. No synchronous collaboration possible.

Vendor response

Hello Charles. Thanks for youre review. This 2021 Chamilo is going to launch a new, fully redesigned interface with its 2.0 version. Keep track of the project by subscribing to our mailing list to get all the updates regarding this topic.

An open source LMS you can trust

Reviewed 3 years ago

We wanted to start with a small campus for a brand new business school that offers MBA programs worldwide, especially in Latin America. Chamilo gives us the accurate platform to scale from a few students to hundreds.

Pros

It's easy to install and you can scale from a small virtual campus to a large arrangement and keeping using open-source software.

Cons

The mobile experience is good enough from its native web interface, but having an official mobile app will be great.

Vendor response

Thanks for your feedback. This 2021 we will make public in our github repository our mobile app.
