Overall Satisfaction with Moodle

Moodle is the sole learning management system used at our organization and has been compared with most of the other popular systems. The only near rival is Google Classroom, and it is not particularly close. Moodle is flexible enough to suit most needs except for synchronous audio or video interaction.
  • Frequent updating (through Git)
  • Free
  • Customizable and flexible
  • Takes up relatively little disk space
  • The flexibility of the system can be a drawback, as beginners designing courses have too many options
  • Test analysis is lacking
  • Test results and responses can be bothersome to export
  • Considerable savings in printing and proctoring costs
  • Server costs may be a new expense for many organizations
  • Learners must have Internet access
None of the other products have nearly the flexibility or cost saving that Moodle does.

Do you think Moodle delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Moodle's feature set?

Yes

Did Moodle live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Moodle go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Moodle again?

Yes

As a complete system for learning management, it works well. But it can be overkill for many traditional instructors, such as those hundreds who have suddenly had to use some kind of remote learning software over the last year. Moodle also has a relatively long history and an active user base, so it is unlikely to go under soon.
