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

Moodle is a Learning Management System and is best suited for just that. We didn't like the assessment piece of our full scale Learning Management System (nor did we want to purchase the entire assessment module) so we chose to use Moodle for this, and it works well. Installing this application with the intention of only using a portion of its capabilities can be successful in environments where you have technical skills and a broad understanding of integration between your systems. For institutions that lack these, you're better suited to using a full scale of an LMS with assessment inside that same application.

Pros

Learndot

  • Integrations
  • User maintenance
  • Course scheduling

Moodle

  • 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

Learndot

  • Limited reporting
  • Tougher integration with SFDC than expected

Moodle

  • The interface is not very intuitive. You must know what you are looking for in order to navigate effectively.
  • Although installation of Moodle is easy, it is a little more difficult to configure it with your other Learning tools. As an example, LDAP synchronization is a little difficult.
  • The interface is a little dated, even though new releases keep coming out (which is great!) none of them really add value to the appearance of the platform.

Moodle can be used on a tablet, on a mobile phone, and on a PC. It is easy to navigate for learners and figure out for administrators. The learners can easily complete tasks and the administrators can easily track completion. The last thing about Moodle that one may not realize is that it somewhat resembles Facebook in its layout. This means that users are already familiar with the interface and therefore they are more comfortable using it.

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.

We have never had an issue go unresolved and we have never had to escalate any problem. The Tech Service team does all of that on their end.

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

Learndot

  • Better customer service
  • Fully contained customer facing experience
Brad Hamilton profile photo

Moodle

  • Our ROI has been that it works for what need to accomplish, given the resources we have available, both in support staff, IT, and financial constraints.
  • We are becoming more sophisticated in our experiences of delivering online education. Thus we now see the needs and limitations of our LMS with better clarity. Moodle has been a good interim system while we grow. I am sure we will move away from Moodle within the next 3-5 years. There have been other products that have surpassed what Moodle does. The question is whether they are affordable.
