Articulate 360

Articulate 360 is perfect for novice instructional designers and for those who need to produce a lot of content quickly. I cannot think of a time it wouldn’t be appropriate because it has so much functionality.

Moodle

Moodle is perfect for education. In education, we are sincerely lacking a mainstream online platform for all educators to use. Some platforms, like SKEDULA, allow for grading, but they do not allow you to upload assignments that are easy to see, edit and get submissions, then grade. Platforms like Edmodo are too socially oriented and do not actually have the month and weekly breakdown that I look for and find very useful with Moodle. If you need a blended platform that allows students to learn in the classroom and also be coached and monitored at home, then Moodle is the best option. Being able to tell parents to log in to the account to see what is due, what is coming up, look at reference files, and check grades, makes engagement with parents simple, direct and supportive.

Pros

  • You have the ability to create a variety of courses easily with the vast array of tools provided.
  • The asset library is extremely handy.
  • The pre-made templates make the creation process for new instructional designers extremely easy.

  • Allows for all students to create their own unique account to use to complete lessons and submit assignments. This makes it easier to grade students on an individual basis.
  • Allows administrators to easily control visible content, create lessons, and deliver blended learning lessons online and in the classroom. This makes updating curriculum very easy.
  • All student grades are listed on the Moodle platform. Students, parents and teachers are able to see student performance in live time as projects are assessed.
  • Very easy to use by designers who are not professional web designers. Makes implementation of the platform simple.

Cons

  • I think that importing from PowerPoint can be better.
  • Advanced programming is not something that you can do easily. You just need to click a lot.
  • I'd love to see better support for mobile applications right from the start.
Piotr Peszko profile photo
  • There is a major learning curve for building and administrating Moodle courses if you've never done it before.
  • The interface looks a bit dated. You can theme Moodle to change the look of it, but it doesn't change the overall interface.
  • Customization of functionality requires a programmer with Moodle expertise.

Moddle does what I want so far, and I feel it has additional functions I could (should!) use to enhance my course.The unknown in this review is about implementation, upgrade and maintenance resources and effort.

It's free, open source software. The biggest expense is hosting it, followed by paying a developer (or developers) to keep things up and running (especially with unique authentication needs, enterprise wide use, etc).

Moodle is an excellent LMS in relationship to any other one that I have seen or used. The pages load quickly and the reports complete in a reasonable time frame. Moodle has taken on Respondus, StudyMate, BigBlueButton, Turning Tech, Turnitin2, Certificates, Attendance, Tegrity, Questionnaire, Virtual Programming Lab, and Badges. All of these programs work right in with Moodle and do not cause any issues. Instructors may also use Camtasia and Snagit software as well as using webcams, downloading videos from the Internet, adding into books, or any of the many other areas within Moodle. Our instructors use the grade books without many problems and really don't ask questions much anymore. We upgrade Moodle every semester and are currently on 2.9+. Our instructors have basically learned to use most of the resources and activities.

Moodle is open source, and must be evaluated in that context, but one also has to provide a fair comparison to competing products with commercial backing. Support varies depending on the component of Moodle. Bug reports in Moodle Core that affect security or stability are dealt with promptly. Functionality requests or features not working smoothly may or may not be addressed, depending on whether the functionality desired matches the "vision" of Moodle HQ. The user community provides excellent support for initial installation and configuration, but more complex questions may go unanswered, unless they are noticed by someone who happens to know the answer. The support forum feature at the Moodle site (the same feature used within Moodle itself) does not provide granular subscription to topic discussions, apparently by design, and Moodle HQ seems resistant to changing this feature.

Find a partner who will work with you during the implementation process. Be sure to provide ample training for veteran users on the changes and for newbies on the overall product.

Alternatives Considered

I think that Articulate made a huge leap jump forward releasing the 360 package. It is much better as a suite, and cheaper compared to Adobe eLearning or CC package. From my perspective, it is much better for small (up to 10) groups of developers and initial phases of e-learning implementation. From my experience when it goes to advanced programming in courses shared actions in Adobe Captivate wins.

Moodle has a lot of features and it's been around a long time. While it's not always the most intuitive or user friendly platform in terms of set up and maintenance, you can't beat the functionality for the price. Money talks and Moodle is free. The platform is robust enough to serve our needs, and we've managed to do custom integrations which created a unique SaaS product.

Moodle is the easiest software to find out issues that occur. Although we have very few problems, it is simple for our Server Administrator to find out any that I cannot figure out that are the simple issues that our new instructors may have. He is able to search within the server where I cannot and is able to search within the server logs that I cannot see. Most of these problems are resolved within 24 hours or less.

Return on Investment

  • I cannot yet assess our ROI since our program is still new and we have not yet had a chance to see ROI.
Valorie Engholm profile photo
  • From my standpoint, I think Moodle has worked out very well on campus and has been well accepted by students, faculty & staff. Of course you have your good with the bad circumstances but that’s with any program you use.
