Pros

The cost of Populi is also a great asset because we are a small online non profit institution and having a reasonably priced product really helps us with our small budget.
I believe it's a good product and it has good potential, given the team's impressive efforts toward meet the rapid changing needs of their current and future customers.
Also, Populi's customer service is very impressive - very responsive and professional. They understand very well and resolve your issue very effectively.

Pros

Customer support is great and speed is high, Overall quality is excellent and it is easy to use. Features & Functionality is great.
It helps alot in E-Learning, it opens an opportunity to interact with students ,encourage, motivate and teach them in a decent manner.
We have the ability to add new features. The virtual classroom feature is brilliant and it was added on time.

Cons

Even sending emails to selected students is a hassle. Adding meeting times to courses is awfully difficult and annoying.
We've struggled with finding some features at times, and in the case of marketing automation, we've discovered that Populi's system isn't quite fully-featured enough for our needs.
Compared to some competitors however, Populi is limited.

Cons

I have a problem in registering upgradable marks.all the marks that i have to-put it has to be calculated at the end of the year.
The view of multiple coloumns on the gradebook of students is really confusing. The window have an option to minimize and maximize the view.
Sometimes there are glitches. However, this is usually due to unstable internet connections.
