    Blackboard review by Larry M.
    "very flexible in accommodating varied needs, but counter intuitive and old-school: It is very flexible in letting you create your course structure and grading system. It allows you to set automated dates of deploying/concluding the course or you can go with the normal semester dates and forget about it. The concluded courses can be saved to the corporate drive or can be exported to your own archive. When you post announcements, it deploys instantaneously online and via email, and you can include a link to files that might pertain to the announcement."

    Schoology review by Philip P.
    "An LMS that puts your content, students, assessments, and even third party apps. : Our district uses Schoology as a district wide Learning Management System (LMS). We switched to Schoology last year and I use Schoology for almost all of my course work. I teach using the flipped classroom model and Schoology's platform allows me to share my lecture videos, conduct assessments of student knowledge and understanding, to give assignments, and to provide communication with students and parents. All of my content is available to my students through Schoology 24/7, I can make it available in a variety of ways, and I can make updates in real time. Schoology's introduction of the Google Assignment App has me excited about our switch to Chromebooks. This app allows you to attach a Google Doc (say a study guide) as part of an assignment. When students open the assignment the document is copied, renamed, and added to their Google Drive. No more students opening or copying a new version of the document each time they go back to the assignment instead of to the copy they made but didn't actually rename like the directions stated. The document is 'tied' to the assignment and updates no matter where they work on it from (inside the assignment or through their Google Drive.) I also use the platform’s completion rules to give students autonomy while also keeping them on track. "

I used the software for quite some time and made dynamic interactions for all my students of different levels of learning styles. I like the idea of ​​being able to provide all the learning materials that my students need wherever they are and at their own convenience. Edmodo is software that all teachers should try to experience the benefits of teaching easily with just touching the tip of the finger. As an educator, this software makes a great revolution in how learning should be. This software offers comfort, flexibility and precision. In general, the characteristics that I like most about this software are that I can access the performance of each student and I can give immediate evaluations and comments."

    Sakai review by Daniel M.
    "Great java-based community-managed open source LMS : Our users are very happy with Sakai. Their evolution the last years has been awesome, specially the UX/UI improvements in Sakai 11 with the responsive design and the Lessons tool new features. I am not a real developer, but when I have done a development (a patch for a bug, a small feature...) the community has helped me, reviewing the code and guiding me to follow the best practices. And my code has been finally merged into the repository, becoming part of the product and being available for others. I think this is not possible in other open-source LMS, and of course neither in the propietary alternatives."

Plus, the fun quizzes help keep people honest! :-) "

This makes it easy for students to complete smaller tasks at home, even without a tablet. -Evaluate student work right in the app (online or device) for instant feedback, and you can even assign a grade. -Use the assignment folders to easily organize your classroom work into "project" or "unit" folders. -The Shared Folder inside each assignment folder is a fantastic way to send files to all students at once (PDF, .mov, .jpg, etc.). -Parents are able to access students' accounts, and with the way the folders are organized, Showbie can be used as a "portfolio" to demonstrate student learning."

    "Best Online Education Solution in the Association Space: BlueSky eLearn's Path LMS has an intuitive and clean interface that provides a fantastic user experience for both customers and administrators. The platform is flexible enough to offer eLearning programs of various complexities, which is invaluable for associations challenged with keeping up with the eLearning world and member's demands. The eCommerce/shopping cart is one of my favorite features because it makes the purchasing process so simple and straightforward...just as it should be. I can set up promo and discount codes on-the-fly (even from my smartphone!) to provide excellent customer service in a timely manner. Having implemented Path at two associations now (one with 20,000 members and one with 6,000 members), I can say that the BlueSky team is responsive and knowledgeable in regards to integrating their open API with various systems, and patient when it comes to helping their clients trouble-shoot. New features and improvements are introduced regularly, so you know they are also listening to their client's needs."
