  • Installing Open Source Moodle has saved us money in contractual obligations and consulting fees for creating the customized solution we were looking for. The time and learning curve associated with using Open Source Moodle as compared with the SaaS, still outweighs paying for a service since we wanted so much customization.
  • One negative effect of using Moodle is the difficultly in faculty and staff buy in. While our institution was accustomed to the main Learning Management System we use, it was quite taxing trying to explain why we were using another system for the outcomes alignment and assessment.
  • Installing and using Moodle Open Source has encouraged the professional development of the staff responsible for implementation. They have had to use inquiry and perseverance in developing a setup that supports the needs of our institution best.

  • Online learning has never been an issue especially for those students who can't physically attend in the classroom in a particular day.
  • Collaboration among peers can easily be done and sharing of lecture notes and assessment is as easy as clicking the link.
  • Teaching is more dynamic and fulfilling because learning delivery method can be done electronically using Moodle which provides productivity to the teachers.

  • We have the ability to know where students are. This leads to students being happy because they feel cared for.
  • We're saving the team a lot of time tracking student progress. Now this time can be used to actually engage with the students.

  • Moodle has helped with conducting courses to remote audiences.
  • It has been frustrating to work with at times, leading to lots of troubleshooting calls and messages. Overall, our organization controls many special features, and it is hard for course instructor/manager to get special features changed or added (must go through our organization's IT process to do so).

  • Student engagement has increased.
  • Parent involvement has increased.
  • Customizing and updating the curriculum is done on a weekly basis and more often than it would be using other platforms and strategies to compile lesson plans.
  • A positive classroom culture has been developed as a result of students being able to learn at home and in class.

  • POSITIVE: I was given a contract to provide online learning services to schools and was able to quickly provide what educators were looking for. In the past, I used a platform that did not have the ability to group teachers with their class, or provide badges. This platform was designed for the classroom.
  • POSITIVE: Since the portal is easy to use, and there are many users around the world, I was able to watch many online training courses to get up to speed with the set up and launch my courses. There were many free trainings, as well, I was able to find some paid training through Lynda.com to give me a more thorough training on the ADMIN functions.
  • POSITIVE: The portal is professional looking with many functions beyond what I use. Some of the most well-known educational institutions use Moodle, so it helped with credibility.

  • Moodle is deeply integrated into our product offering. It serves as the foundation of our platform.
  • It can be costly to customize Moodle beyond it's inherent capabilities when add-ons for the platform are not available or do not do what you need them to do.
  • Moodle documentation varies in quality depending on the issue you're having. This can be problematic at times.

  • Considering we have students from all over the world as well as teachers, Moodle has been perfect for our goals of uniting people from various countries in a seamless learning experience.
  • Moodle has convenient features for teachers and students, which simplifies the educational process (for example, test grading is taken care of by the system).
  • Moodle's mobile app makes it possible for people who don't have much dedicated free time other than commute, for example, to study anywhere and wherever they have time.

  • 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.
