Overall Satisfaction with Moodle

Moodle is what it is. It's cost-effective and it gets the job done. You are not getting a Cadilac when you get Moodle and can find a lot more options when you look at other LMS's but it gets the job done. Overall, if you are looking for something that will not break the bank and will deliver training to learners, its the way to go.
  • Cheap.
  • Customizable.
  • Lack of real features.
  • Unless you go through a provider that offers support you are on your own.
  • We saved a lot of money over buying a high end LMS.
Really all of the low-cost LMS offerings are about the same. You are getting what you pay for. You can spend a little money and a lot of time customizing it to meet your brand and your need or you can buy a higher-end LMS that already does a lot of what you need.
This depends on who you buy it through and who is hosting it. Alternatively, you can also spend a lot of time online learning how to do the stuff on your own. There is a wealth of information online from people who have done it in the past. You just have to be determined to find it.

Did implementation of Moodle go as expected?


Would you buy Moodle again?


Moodle is well suited for times when you need something that is affordable and all you want to do is deliver courses to learners. It is ideal for small organizations with a small budget. It is less appropriate for an organization that wants all of the bells and whistles that come with the high-end LMS's on the market.
