Overall Satisfaction with Moodle

Moodle is the sole LMS for our school of about 1200 students. We use it to deliver 6 online degree programs, support stand alone online courses, and supplement face to face courses. It is used throughout the organization and allows us a means to deliver course content in a FERPA compliant and interactive environment.
  • Allows for flexibility in look and feel
  • Has features that allow both student and faculty contribution
  • Has numerous 3rd party plugins to enhance the environment
  • Improve the wiki module to allow easier commenting by other users
  • Create an easier means for students to share video content in forums
  • Have a way to set certain assignments as viewable to other students - for the submission only.
  • It keeps our expenses down
  • It allows us to deliver high quality online courses
  • It allows us to customize the design of the courses to be unique to our school
We are likely to continue using Moodle because it is available at the right price point. Also we have spent a significant amount of time developing an infrastructure for course design and a large amount of content within the system which would be time consuming to migrate to a new platform.
Moodle is great as a learning management system. It is reasonably priced and malleable to the needs of an institution.
