Love that Learndot has Stripe integration, love the fact that all of our registration now happens on a single website instead of having courses listed on one site and then having to go to Eventbrite for the actual registration. Love that it integrates with SFDC and WebEx.

Moodle is an excellent platform for instruction. It has many tools that can be used to enhance the learner experience. I would not recommend it for data analysis.

Pros

  • Integrations
  • User maintenance
  • Course scheduling
Brad Hamilton profile photo
  • Under the Open Source model of Moodle, there are countless customization options available. We only make use of the modules associated with rubrics and outcomes and that demonstrates the ability to pick and choose what you want to use of the software.
  • Moodle is very easy to install on the server and is readily available on CPanel (as well hosting control panels) for even easier installation.
  • Being that Moodle offers an Open Source model of their software, it can be very cost effective for an institution with limited resources if they are able to invest the time in setting up the system. If there is a budget allowance for an initiative involving this type of software, then Moodle does a great job of working with you to implement.

Cons

  • Limited reporting
  • Tougher integration with SFDC than expected
Brad Hamilton profile photo
  • The lesson module, while easier to use than previous versions, still causes our faculty to shy away from it.

Yes, Moodle is always available. We are self-hosted and Moodle is always up and available. The only time that it is not available is when we are upgrading it each semester. It is then down for just a few planned hours. That is in-between semesters and we let the faculty and students know. We do it on a Friday evening and it is back up within a few hours.

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.

We use Moodlerooms. I know they work with a triage method but sometimes the things you feel important is not to them. I also feel larger institutions (more $) can get a higher priority.

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.

We find Moodle easier to use than Blackboard, less expensive, more versatile and we like the ability to select among numerous service providers for support and price.

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

  • Better customer service
  • Fully contained customer facing experience
Brad Hamilton profile photo
  • Switching from Blackboard to Moodle helped us reduce costs at our institution during a critical funding shortage.
  • Although we have had to develop reports ourselves, our access to data and reporting within Moodle has allowed us to focus on measuring effective teaching and learning practices within our institution in a way that wasn't possible with Blackboard. We are in the process of developing specific learning analytics to further improve this aspect of our institution.
  • As we progressed in using Moodle, we found we had to allocate significantly higher resources than originally estimated, including a full-time LMS administrator internally, and increased support services at our hosting provider.
