Overall Satisfaction with Moodle

I work at a community college. Moodle is used by all instructors here. Administrators also use Moodle for gathering information from faculty. Moodle is the platform that we use to teach our online courses. We also use it for face-to-face classes to post and grade assignments, exams, and quizzes. Additionally, Moodle has an easy to use grade book that is linked to assignments and exams so it takes out the extra step. I also use Moodle to take attendance and to monitor a student's progress in my courses.
  • 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.
  • Moodle has allowed our campus to stay within a tight budget while giving our students a great learning platform.
  • I do not handle the business end of things, so I cannot speak further on its ROI.
Moodle is an excellent platform for instruction. It has many tools that can be used to enhance the learner experience. I would not recommend it for data analysis.
