Overall Satisfaction with Moodle

Moodle is the main LMS on campus. It is used as a landing board for instructional courses, storing online trainings, accessing job aid material, viewing panopto videos, etc.
  • Moodle is able to keep track of student data per course.
  • Moodle is able to integrate outside programs such as Panopto that you can use within your course.
  • Moodle is user friendly for the most part. Everything is self explanatory and it doesn’t take a lot of researching to find actions, activities, how to setup your course, etc. When editing your course, it’s very easy to add activities/resources to your course and Moodle explains, in detail, what each activity/resource is and how it will function within your course.
  • Sometimes Moodle has issues “communicating” with certain outside sources such as Lockdown Browser.
  • When upgrading to the 3.4 version of Moodle, the campus is noticing that some activity plugins are not upgradable.
  • 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.
I think Moodle would be my 1st pick, then next Schoology. I’ve been only been exposed to Moodle as an admin whereas I use Schoology as a student, not an administrator.
Moodle is definitely helpful for instructors in any educational setting, but I would think Moodle wouldn’t be great in a corporate setting.
