Overall Satisfaction with Moodle

Moodle was put in place to augment our existing training systems, which are two different LMS systems for two very different divisions of the company. Moodle was the software that centralized administrative and other cross-divisional trainings and allowed us to reach the entire company rather than duplicating work in two different systems. Ultimately one of the existing LMSs was chosen as the standard for the whole company, negating the need for Moodle, but while it was in operation it was a good product that serviced our needs admirably.
  • Course-driven learning delivery.
  • Reporting and status on learner progress.
  • Supporting asynchronous learning.
  • The interface is getting a little long in the tooth.
  • Some functions require drilling down multiple levels.
  • Reporting is basic, and requires a lot of manual collation across different learning groups.
  • Increased learning by staff.
  • Open source (cost reductions).
Moodle, being open source, is the foundation a lot of other tools like it are based on. It provides almost all of the same functionality and feature set as Google Classtoom, Canvas, etc., although those products are a bit more polished. All can do content delivery, progress tracking, attendance, reporting, etc. with ease, but Moodle also does this as a completely open source product that can be code-reviewed, audited, modified, extended, etc. at will, provided the expertise is present.

Do you think Moodle delivers good value for the price?

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

Moodle is great for any environment where a class or other learning activity needs to be completed in an asynchronous manner. It can be used to post information, create interactive threads for discussion, issue quiz and exam work with grading, track and grade progress, and keep track of attendance. It is an overall wonderful solution for managing asynchronous learning.
