What do you like best? Its usability and simplicity. It has all the functions that most of our users need, and the great majority of them don't need any further support to get going.
What do you dislike? Some functions need to evolve and be better integrated, such as Social Network, which is still very basic and not as intuitive as the rest of the platform.

What do you like best? I really like its ease of use and how it can be taught to be used in a short time compared to other software of the same type
What do you dislike? I think the support must improve or at least update the manuals constantly for less experienced users, which are the opinions I have received about the subject. For my part, I think that although the documentation is not always up-to-date, it guides you very well to where you should go

Last but not least I can use it is simple and smalll projects and also in very complex ones because the infraestructure requiered is very ligth.
What do you dislike? That quite a good bunch of people have developments that improve Chamilo but they are still not integrated in the community, but I am sure the Chamilo association is doing efforts to improve this.

What do you like best? I like the freedom it gives our team to import or create most of our content directly inside the platform without having to depend on external tools or an extra paying module all the time. The fact it is so easy to use reduces the whole workload for our employees.
What do you dislike? For more advanced animated content (10% of our edition work), the solution falls a bit short but that can be easily solved with online solutions like PowToon or H5P
