Ultimate Training management via Forma LMS..

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall Forma LMS is highly aesthetic & scalable for corporates & key requirement for current corporate world.. IMO if Company focused on slight modifications then mass adoption definitely on the way in near future....

Pros

Well Forma LMS played a vital role in building my Working profile & Durability via its aesthetic tools & builtups for corporate training sessions.. Multi layer training sessions, well designed & structured setup , high skilled Teams & collaborations & big community behind are one of the key note of Forma LMS...

Cons

Well overall workflow & content focus for P2P & corporates is totally stable in Forma LMS but slight hindrance in mass adoption & scalability is only due to slight mid to high subscription services which need to be focused on..

Forma Review by NGO into Voc-ed

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

The integration of e-commerce which allows us to promote products created by our students.

Cons

We are based out of Asia and wanted to integrate different languages but found it difficult. Probably we did not look hard enough. However, the flexibility of course design is what we require.

Vendor response

Hello Nihar, thanks for your review. Forma comes with 27 built-in language packs. If you want to add more, you can do it.

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.

Vendor response

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.

Valuable tool for training employees

Reviewed a year ago

I have used Forma LMS to create and deliver courses on a variety of topics, including customer service, sales, and technical training. Course creation tools to be easy to use, and I have been able to create engaging and interactive courses. I've also used Forma LMS to track learner progress and generate reports. The reporting tools to be very helpful in identifying areas where learners need additional training.

Pros

Open Source. Forma LMS is scalable and flexible, and it can be customized to meet the needs of any organization. It's easy to add new users and courses. Allows to change the look and feel of the platform to match branding. Integrates with a wide range of third-party applications, including CRM systems. This makes it easy to keep your data in sync and to automate tasks. Meets all industry standards, and the data is safe and secure. This is important to me because I need to be sure that data is protected.

Cons

Mobile app is a good option for learners who want to access their courses on the go. However, it is not as polished or feature-rich as the desktop version. I hope that the developers will continue to improve the mobile app in the future.

Strong learning platform, easy to set up, with potential on UX improvement

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

- We were mostly looking for a content hub where we can store and manage all training content for new colleagues and colleagues with development plans. Forma does a great job here. - Getting PDF certificates adds a nice incentive for our employees to improve their skills. - Forma integrates well with other software/apps we are using in the HR space.

Cons

- The mobile experience could be improved, both for admin and especially users. - Tests could be more pleasant to take UX-wise, I have seen stronger solutions on that side.

Improving the availability and accuracy of support resources has the potential to improve the user experience. .
