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.

I define usability as being able to work with a product and get it to do what you need. The manual comes into play when wanting advanced tools or techniques. Moodle has a cool feature of an "i" in a box for more information. However, I have found that sometimes the in product documentation is not clear and even in the manual the description can be just as cryptic.

I've been able to figure out Moodle through my own experimentation and some help from the Moodle support pages. It's not always obvious where to make certain some changes and It can be a little confusing in determining which pages blocks will appear. If this is your first time using Moodle as an admin/course designer you should expect to spend a some time experimenting because knowing where to make certain changes isn't always intuitive. Additionally, plan to explore the course as a student vs. as admin because the UI is different based upon your settings.

Moodle for "Power User" Institutions of Higher Education

Score 8 out of 10

Usability

Simple uses of Moodle, e.g. to post documents to support a face to face course and perhaps provide a discussion forum for intermittent use, are very easy. Using Moodle as a platform for entirely online courses at a college level requires considerable configuration and selection of customized add-ons to provide missing functionality. Once the system is set up, instruction to faculty and students may be required as every system has specific features and interface elements that are likely to be unusual or even unique. The open-source nature of Moodle does not encourage consistency of the interface. Disagreements in the open source community sometimes hinder improvements to core features, e.g. long-awaited enhancements to the Forum tools.

About Moodle

Since 2001, Moodle is an open source platform that enables educators to develop and manage courses online. Moodle is a modular system based on plugins, which are like lego blocks that users put together to build whatever they want.

There are plugins for different kinds of content, and plugins for collaborative activities. As an example Moodle's Workshop plugin manages a full peer assessment process, so users can get hundreds of students accurately grading each other’s assignments, and save time. Users can add some tracking and reports and the ability to add more plugins from the community, or even write one's own, as well as build whole education environments.

The Moodle project is run by Moodle HQ from Perth, Australia, but would not be what it is without a huge community of users. Its community works together and help each other on moodle.org (itself a Moodle site), where the vendor states it has taken Moodle’s founding principles of feedback and collaboration online and practise it in the Moodle forums, wiki-based Moodle Documentation, Moodle Tracker for bugs and new features, our course-sharing site Moodle.net, and Moodle Translation portal (which means Moodle is available in over 100 languages!).
