  • Course-driven learning delivery.
  • Reporting and status on learner progress.
  • Supporting asynchronous learning.
  • The interface is getting a little long in the tooth.
  • Some functions require drilling down multiple levels.
  • Reporting is basic, and requires a lot of manual collation across different learning groups.

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Frequent updating (through Git)
  • Free
  • Customizable and flexible
  • Takes up relatively little disk space
  • The flexibility of the system can be a drawback, as beginners designing courses have too many options
  • Test analysis is lacking
  • Test results and responses can be bothersome to export

  • Moodle has impressive features in uploading and downloading lecture notes, creating quiz and test, notification features for both students and teachers, generating reports and many others.
  • The backup, restore and import features are really helpful feature of Moodle for teachers.
  • Managing learners' profile and setting enrollment keys are also good feature of Moodle to restrict the valid users.
  • It's about time that Moodle developers should update Moodle and incorporate videoconferencing functionalities.
  • Chatting is another interesting feature to consider by Moodle.
  • Providing immediate data analysis must also be one of the features I am looking forward that Moodle should consider (i.e. graph generation to compare the learning growth of each student)

  • Course delivery - Moodle is very flexible. We have a Moodle Developer so we can create plugins, reporting features, basically anything we want.
  • LTI compatibility - because Moodle is used globally it can communicate with other systems, Student Management Systems, CPR, etc.
  • There are a lot of hidden features that require quite a bit of training in the use of the platform. Sometimes you really have to search to find things it can do.
  • To be able to brand and have Moodle look and function the way we need it to for different projects requires a developer to make those changes.

  • Managing course schedules, like being able to manage elements of an individual course over a period of time (i.e. which specific lessons happen in which week, when assignments are due)
  • Providing teaching staff with useful tools
  • Better scheduling management. You are not able to set up time tables for lessons and exams
  • Administration of staff and teaching allocations. It would be helpful to be able to set who teaches which subject and being able to see who is free to take extra teaching subjects each semester. Also, being able to track teachers' skills would be useful.

Moodle to save the day

Score 9 out of 10

  • Detailing each assignment so that students could refer back to expectations as they completed assignments. This way students were not dependent on they're own notes for reminders.
  • Being open-source, Moodle has so many good plugins that there are few limitations to what it can do.
  • Related to above, this means that virtually every type of assignment a teacher might envision can be created in Moodle. This allows for a vast array of learning experiences.
  • Updating can feel clunky at times. Updating plugins is easy, but updating from one version to the next takes a bit more work.
  • Because it is open-source, you generally need to have someone fairly tech smart to set up and maintain Moodle. This means generally simple HTML coding ability, and the ability to troubleshoot issues as needed.

  • Generic Form builder for the quizzes is an amazing feature.
  • External DB connection provides us the support to re-utilize our existing user base.
  • The security system is phenomenal, someone doesn't need to worry about their data.
  • While we were designing the quizzes, there were some requirements to customize the GUIs. So you need a lot to time to understand the existing structure of the codebase.

  • Multiple features, such as the ability to hold content (PDF, PPT, Word, URLs, etc.), assessment and grading (quizzes), and offers certificates of completion
  • Organization of content into modules
  • The ability of users to interact with other users and instructors easily
  • Certificates of completion are not very customizable, especially for unique modules within a "course"
  • Not very user-friendly in terms of the instructor/manager of the course when it comes to set up. Some features that are different can produce the same results, which makes it confusing to know which should be used (such as requiring specific percentage to complete activity/quiz to move to next module vs. having an item be marked as complete which can only happen if certain percentage achieved, etc.)
  • Offline capabilities

  • Moodle's grade book works well. Assignments are integrated so the grades are recorded automatically.
  • Moodle is customizable by administrators, so our version only gives us the options we need. NO Clutter.
  • The discussion board offers several options for instructors that help with grading. I use "sum of points", but there are other options as well.
  • Moodle needs an option for adding extra credit or "bonus" questions to exams. There is a work-around but it is complicated.
  • In the discussion board, there needs to be a place where an instructor can reply ONLY TO THE STUDENT to critique a particular post.

  • The main strength for using Moodle is the fact that it is an open source platform.
  • We love it as it is scalable and easy to use.
  • We also like it as the Moodle community is very supportive. Any questions asked in the Moodle community will be answered.
  • The theme is a bit difficult to customize. If you insist on having a lot of changes made to your outlook, it is easier to find another vendor to do it.
  • Development of features in Moodle slowly evolves. For example, if another proprietary LMS has video recording function in 2016, Moodle probably will have the features in 2018.
  • It would be good if Moodle Cloud can be subscribed to online from Moodle HQ without going through the Moodle partners.

  • 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.
  • More skins in Moodle to change the color and aesthetics would help engage students better.
  • More functionality would be mass texting through the platform. I currently use REMIND to mass text students, this would be easier since educators are always on this platform.
  • I would like to see Moodle decrease the amount of bandwidth they used when students are logging in. At times Moodle will crash from overload, though it could be my provider or Moodle platform.

  • ADMIN FUNCTION: Customizable Site Design with Modern Easy to Use Interface: We use the Lambda Theme (purchased from Envato Market) but there are many free themes with a modern look and feel as well. I like that I am able to make the site look the way I would like and am not limited to the old way Moodle used to look. These days are long past, and I am proud of the look and feel of the site. I can also manage the user roles/permissions and what each user sees and does not see very easily.
  • ADMIN FUNCTION: Mass Enrollment: If I want to enroll 1,000 students at a time, I can easily enroll or delete mass numbers of students by using a simple Excel spreadsheet upload. I can have a class copied, with students and teachers enrolled in a matter of minutes. I can also manually add students or teachers quickly when needed.
  • ADMIN FUNCTION: Regular security updates to be sure your site is secure. Each time there is a new release, I am able to upgrade to the latest version. I do outsource this to a Moodle expert for time reasons, but many people I know do this easily on their own.
  • COURSE FEATURES: Multimedia embedded throughout. I am able to quickly and easily add audio and video to each lesson for more engagement.
  • COURSE FEATURES: Group Management: I can easily create classes so that a teacher can quickly login and see their class at a glance, and print reports.
  • COURSE FEATURES: A more recent feature is the assignment module and grading feature when the teacher can write annotations and feedback directly in the browser.
  • Virtual Private Servers: In order to have large numbers of students using the program at once, I did need to upgrade to a Virtual Private Server from Hostgator to give me more memory/space/capacity for use. There is a cost to do this and when I did not have students using the program, I didn't like paying the monthly fee for this. I am still searching for another way to handle larger numbers of students without having to use a Private Server.
  • Stronger Representation from their Leadership Team: I do follow many of the Moodle Leadership team, and support communities they have set up and often send them messages (and they do write back). I wish they had a stronger representation (training programs) in the USA to really take Moodle to the next level. I have seen this starting to occur and it does take support from the users as well. I would love Moodle to be known as THE leader in open-sourced learning. I can see they also have this vision by reading their ROADMAP on their website.
