Overall Satisfaction with Moodle

Moodle was used across the institution to support both online and traditional courses.
  • It is easier to customize when compared to other LMS options.
  • It is easier to integrate other products when compared to other LMS options.
  • It works well with video.
  • Moodle requires an advanced level of technical expertise to maintain.
  • Advanced support usually relies on peers. Lack of formal support when deployed as a low cost solution.
  • Benefit of low cost can be eclipsed by cost of maintenance in the long run.
  • The time to implementation was virtually zero which allowed for quick revenue generation in a new line of business.
  • Basic functionality was sufficient to launch meaning that upfront costs were very low.
  • Allowed organization to meet demand for new product quickly and at low initial investment.
Moodle provides basic LMS functionality that is easy to use. In an organization with a very tight budget, an expensive LMS was not an option. Moodle allowed us to enter the online education market with a very small initial investment. As revenue is generated, it can be reinvested to further customize the product and extend functionality.
Moodle can be a good option for startup programs not yet generating sufficient revenue.
