Comments and Reviews
Said about Chamilo as an alternative
More easy to use ! More efficient ! aPossible to create complex eLearning scenarios with so many options, but also without deeper knowledge there are good results.
Chamilo LMS is also an open source e-learning platform more easy to use than Moodle and accessible for people with vision disabilities.
