Selecting a Learning Management System is not an easy task to do, right? There is a lot to consider when choosing the right eLearning software (Key LMS Comparison criteria and their description) and it is not surprising that with so many LMS vendors available some people get easily overwhelmed. To help you to save your time and money we would like to remind you of our 1 month FREE trial and give you some advice how to get the most out of it!

First of all we recommend you to play with our DEMO and watch our demonstration course.

Concerning tailoring JoomlaLMS toward your needs, you can set up both the system itself and each specific section such as courses, files, attendance, users etc. in JoomlaLMS Configuration Settings. To learn more have a look at Admin setting overview page .
