Pros & Cons Preview
  • Feature packed LMS.
  • Slow, not user-friendly, not intuitive, not really compatible with mobile devices.
  • Expensive, crowded with useless features, and so much more.
  • Their multilanguage support is also a nightmare, especially if you're not that well-versed in English.
