Moodle Software


 

Moodle is a free, open-source learning management system (LMS) available to users in corporate and academic settings. It allows course administrators to extend users' education beyond the classroom or office. Private websites can be created and customized to include dynamic courses that engage learners and allow their progress to be tracked and reported.

Moodle's focus is on usability, and includes customizable themes and a wide range of modules and features. Individual learners can be tested through assignments and quizzes, and collaboration can be promoted through user-generated wikis, workshops and forums.

Gamification features such as rewards, leaderboards and hidden easter eggs help keep learners engaged, while freely available plug-ins and add-ons allow course administrators to create a learning environment that fits their needs.

Moodle is Web-based and comes with over 100 language packs for use in most parts of the world, along with the global network of certified Moodle Partners available to assist with integration and customer support.

Do your research to see if this will work for you.

Pros

So the great thing about moodle is that it's fully customizable, it's open source so you can do anything you need to do with it. Out of the box it's ready to rock provided that you have content to add as it doesn't have any of it's own. But the greatest thing about moodle is that if you have a team of developers or even one really good instructional designer you don't have to spend any additional funds in order to get this going.

Cons

Because it's open source the support lacks, so unless you have an IT guy or a developer you may struggle with getting this off the ground but it's a great solution if you have issues with financials.

The customer service is worse than a cable company.

Pros

There is very little to like about this product. The only thing I can think of is that it makes grades easily available online.

Cons

The site is constantly crashing. The users are virtually unable to accomplish anything because of the frequency of failure within the website. I attend a large university that uses it and every single professor absolutely hates the site because of its difficulty to operate, constant crashing, it is hard to grade from, and for students it is a confusing mess of useless features and lack of organization. The website is incredibly slow for mobile usage. This is easily the worst product available. DO NOT BUY!

Like most LMS products, Moodle tends to assume that the course will be calendar driven rather than skills driven. So while it is possible to create a course that is unit-based rather than tied to specific dates, the progression is still implied as linear. It takes a lot of work to create a skills driven course with the opportunity for cyclical expansion of skills that build on each other.

Pros

Moodle is modular and flexible, meaning that it can be used for a wide variety of different types of learning. It integrates well into joomla, allowing for customization of look and feel and organizational branding. With the joomdle extension it also provides for seamless connection of payment information and membership profiles. Basic features work "out of the box" - specific tools may require some programming knowledge to have them work exactly the way you want, but since it's open source, extending and adjusting functionality is unlimited.

Cons

The "out of the box" version of moodle is not very attractive to look at - it could benefit a lot with a few less traditional themes.
Support is from the developer community at large, so for "weird" problems, you may not get a lot of useful help.

nice platform

Pros

easy to use and learn; no experience needed; different sections are available to add to the course; size limit is good

Cons

the user interface for learner looks not very friendly, not customized.
restriction setup is nice while if there are many topics, it looks busy on the page; if when they click they can get the warning message, may be also ok.
During test, the course is not available to student while only LMS administrator can change the role to student to view the course, not very convenient.

Functionality

Moodle is a very useful platform for e-learning. It has everything to teach online. I can recognize 3 levels of users for this software. - The administrator who is in charge to set up the environment and moodle experience for other users. - The teacher who is going to use tools to make an online course exciting, and - The student that will enjoy the course and participate in it though the collaborative tools. If you can do the work of the 2 first levels, congratulations, you are a Moodle expert.

Pros

- You can manage a whole school or university in the academic area with Moodle and for the administrative help you have a big list of choices to get plugins or ERPs compatible with Moodle.
- If you know how to use it is a wonderful experience for the teachers and students.
- Once that you have the course online, it is a beautiful tool.
- There is a lot of documentation and forums about Moodle that can help you to solve almost every issue that you will face using it.

Cons

- It's a free software but is difficult to install and maintain for a person who is not related with IT. So a good option is get it as a SaaS (software as a Service) paying for hosting and upgrades but having the experts doing it, so you can focus in the academic area.
- You have to learn how to use it properly and it takes time.
- Prepare a course is heavy and a hard work, there are some functionalities that could help us to do it easier, like be capable us to erase or move multiple objects at the same time.

This is in general good product to organize distant learning, yet, companies that want to have more detailed information about their workers' learning process will find this platform unsatisfying. Plus, it won't be good for big companies (>1000 employees)

Pros

It's free. It is good for basic distant learning processes such as loading scorm, tests, files.

Cons

I believe that it has many hidden functions and can be used in more advanced levels, but you have to spend so much time on to learn them all. Instructions on how to use them are more complicated than functions themselves. Then, Moodle is a local platform, you can't use it at home unless it's set up on your computer. Plus, because it's free, it doesn't have immediate customer support. You need to wait sometimes weeks to get help.

That being said about no Moodle Help Center, I do enjoy the Moodle forums. I am able to Google my question and an answer is usually available in one of the forums.

Pros

I like how easy Moodle can be. There is a bit of a learning curve, but once you get over it, it's really easy to navigate through. I am and admin who is not all that tech savvy, but I am able to find certain functions or features I need since I already know how Moodle is set up.

Cons

I don't like the fact that there is no main help center for Moodle. Although, it is free so I can't really complain, but this was the only con I could think of!

I currently go to NCSU and they have many of their courses set up through moodle. I have had constant problems with it when taking classes in high school and I thought it would be better when I got to college, but I am still having lost assignments and various logouts. I have lost many assignments due to not clicking the 4th button in a row just trying to upload a damn file. This has been met with me now failing a course because assignments I had uploaded were lost or not recorded.

Moodle or 3rd Party?

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

The draw to Moodle is the fact that it is open source and that people believe they can get it to do whatever they want. The secondary draw may be that people see some really fancy Moodle sites out there that people have created, and they think they can have that too.
That's where the draw ends. To design your own Moodle environment requires a lot of coding knowledge, a lot of playing around, and a lot of failure. Frankly, for just the average, HTML-friendly Joe it is too much cost of discovery for noted benefit in an academic environment. Academics require results, Moodle forces trouble. However, beyond even this step, the next biggest trouble is that while people see some of the amazing things Moodle can do, they don't see the price tag associated with that from a third party host/developer. When we were on Moodle, we used a third party host that quoted us to simply research and find out if they could apply a new layout and skin to our environment. We didn't even want to hear a quote of what it would take to implement it, though they assured us there would be another fee if it could be done. The cost of exploration or the cost of relying on a third party makes this an unmanageable option. Today, you can get a packaged LMS from any number of first party competitors that works well enough to save you the development time and the expenditure dollars.
Be wary of new Moodle ventures - it looks shiny on the outside, but it's dirty on the inside.

Advice to Others

Commit to a good company and have a lot of dollars to spend. IF you can do that, you can get a fantastic custom system. It can do EVERYTHING you want it to do. Just keep your blank checks handy.

Cloud based access which integrates with our AD single sign on environment. Look and feel of the product is easy to use. For the part, most of the Moodle product is easy to use for faculty, staff and students.

Likes Least

Moodle grade book section trying sucks! Very complicated and tedious to use. Faculty often get frustrated with its lack of use. Moodle recently upgraded to a new version which broke a lot of links and funtionalties that we had specially created for our user experience purposes. Sometimes customer support is slow especially during emergencies.

Recommendations

Make sure you check the grade book, look and feel to ensure your community based will not be frustrated. Also make sure to check contract for detailed customer support during off hours when some things may break.

Its Free, powerful and user friendly. It constantly get updates and improvements.

Pros

When installed on a good server and once it is setup, then leave it alone and it will run flawless. I update moodle every 6 months for security and feature improvements. It has not ever crashed on me. You have to follow the installation instructions exactly. Always create backups.

I use supermicro motherboards with xeon processors and lots of ram. We have a little over 200 college students and they like using it.

Some teachers say that Blackboard might have a few more features. Moodle is free and can do anthing we want.

The only extra apps we install in moodle is the attendance and collapsed topics. No problems with these.

We mainly use the default settings on the server install and also on moodle. We use one of the skins that come with it.

We have one person that creates the classes each semester and helps the teachers if they need it.

Once your classes are setup, you can copy them over for the next semester.

Cons

None that we have.

Basically stick with the basic setup. Do as little experimenting as possible with different addons. Then just let it run.

Ours only goes down when I install updates or a large power outtage.

Moodle's complexity may be confusing for users, but in the end it allows good and successful teaching over distance.

Pros

Moodle allows courses to be taught online with students distributed over distance. Many parts of it's interface, particularly overviews of grades and status of various students, is helpful.

Cons

Moodle and it's user interface is quite complex, undoubtedly in attempt to add flexibility for different types of courses. In my experience teaching with it, though, many users, especially older, non-computer savvy students, have difficulty navigating to find the various parts required of them in the coursework.

Pros

Free (except to host it-see below in cons)
Lots of free articles and you tube videos to help you with it.

If you are task oriented, you can set up an entire course with this program including videos, pictures, web pages, test, SCORM packages, whatever you want. I even have courses within courses.

You can train others to use it as well. Administration is pretty good so you can have others create courses or content, but not have the ability to screw things up.

Cons

Clunky and scroll of death are common descriptors of the program.

It is free and there are updates coming out all the time, but you better have a good IT department that is willing to host the site, manage the server, etc. My webpage guy at my fire department set this up for me for free. Then I got a bill from someone that he had to hire to set it up because it was over his head. I don't dare ask him to upgrade it because I will probably get another bill. But I can still use it, just some of the newer features don't work. As soon as I can, I will try to get my City's IT department to host it for me on a newer server.

There are quite a few Moodle partners who will host it for you, but they are extremely expensive.

I tried to host it myself with a free web hosting service and it worked for a day or two until I got notice that I had violated the user agreement. I don't know how, maybe I used up too much space. Don't know.

Covers most of what es expected on an eLearning platform. provides all functions, mainly adapted by other vendors and marketed very expensive, although Moodle is Open Source. I would rather invest in professional developers and use Moodle as base platform and customize to suite demands

Cons

The Integration with Oracle is supposed to be slow. I haven't tested that yet, so not sure. Mainly, Moodle users are large, for Colleges and Universities, and Oracle is supposed to handle large user environments better and faster responsivenes, so i expect that the Moodle Development Community does something to make the use of Oracle as Backend better

Pros

I like the structure of the website. You can find everything under the designed tab. Also, I like the search engine for courses, students, or specific professors. Overall, it's an easy website to manage as administrator!

Cons

One of the thing I do not like about Moodle is the way you upload assignments. Some students have faced difficulty uploading assignments or papers.

I received immense educational learning experiences through this software.

Pros

Moodle is very straight forward to use. Moodle provides customization and is extremely friendly for users and administrators. I have used Moodle as a user and as an administrator, therefore, I can attest to this fact. I have been using Moodle for five years now and think it to be superior than other software out there.

Cons

Sometimes Moodle can have a slight lag when loading videos that are loaded onto a home page for courses.

The greatest benefits are being able to manage and deliver content with the click of a button.

Pros

I most like Moodles organization and intuitive features. It's easy to organize and deliver content to students. Once you have a little bit of experience, there's not much in the classroom that you can't do with moodle in some way shape or form. The Organization,Grading, feedback, compatability, and assessment features make moodle a must for anyone moving into a digitized learning space or 1 to 1 environment.

Cons

While moodle is not perfect and can be a bit difficult to figure out in some regards, its the most cost effective platform I've seen for a digital learning space.

Pros

Moodle is low cost and very user friendly. I would say if you are comfortable using most social media platforms, you should adapt to Moodle with ease. Moodle also has a host of plugins which can be added to enhance the overall efficiency of the software. Shout out to: all the mass features. Overall, Moodle gives you bank for your buck. Larger LMS options are too expensive for smaller schools to afford. Moodle is helping to close the gap between cost and functionality.

Cons

Learning the ins and outs of the software can be a bit painstaking. Randomly, things may go wrong, and it takes a bit of time to dig through the online forums to resolve the issue. I guess this is kind of a pro and a con at the same time as the user community is really supportive. Also, the beta versions of some of the plugins can be a hit or miss with them working perfectly for some users but spotty for others.

Offline teaching and learning

Pros

free (open source), flexible Course Management System, great community support, robust and easy to use

Cons

Not in my language, yet, so many users of the application would strongly resend it.
Also a down-side, you have to learn how to use each (of many) tool most appropriately to get the best results

Nothing. I was way to difficult to work with. Unless you have a company that sets it up for you, expect to struggle.

Pros

It was free. That's it. I really cannot think of anything else to say. I was super excited to get the opportunity to use it but it was cumbersome.

Cons

There was this hype about Moodle being free... all the support you need in on the internet. Yes it is free and there is a reason for that. When looking for support, there is a lot out there as long as it is common things, any time you get to the nitty gritty of something you are on your own. Then free? It was not really free. Setup costs, support costs, etc..etc...If you go it alone be prepared to spend hours and days trying to understand the beast. The user interface looked old fashioned. Everything about the look and feel was ugly.
