How to choose a LMS?

Purchasing or downloading an open source LMS is not sufficient to bring value to your institution. Institutions have not been able to get the LMS to work for multiple reasons!


1. How do you budget for a LMS?

There are open source LMS available that are generally not free when you budget for support, training, customization, and ongoing maintenance. It is also a tedious process to procure individual services. With a high turnover of individuals, it is also risky when there is no continuity.

Have you heard your users say that the system does not work??

mElimu provides a turnkey pay-per-user pricing that includes unlimited support, unlimited training, unlimited maintenance, unlimited upgrades, unlimited server capacity and unlimited storage for learning content – What else would you need?
