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.

This made my university life easy

We used this software for lecture notes distribution, assignment submissions, notices and etc. But I missed some assignment submissions and the notification doesn't show up for a few days.

Pros

We used this software for lecture notes distribution, assignment submissions, notices and etc. This made it easy as we were able to do all stuff from one place.

Cons

The User Interface is not friendly. Sometimes it's confusing.

A trusted Content/Learning management system that free and open source

Cannot expect more as it is a really good, open source tool. Highly customizable to suit your needs and has almost all features you are going to need as plugins.

Pros

Moodle is a highly customizable open source tool which has been there for some time and which had clearly grown in so many ways. Being a reliable, open source tool makes it ideal for small businesses and institutes It has so many plugins which enable you to find the best options for your requirement and it allows your content and course materials to be organized in a clean and neat manner. There are features like uploading documents, emailing which are a definitely going to help users when it comes to educational institutes.

Cons

In users point of view, moodle really does not have any cons as being a free tool it really does an amazing job. The only thing to mention would be, when the load gets high, the system tends to hang and if you are trying to upload an assignment at the last moment, you will have a hard time getting it done.

Moodle, online classroom.

I've used it for many college courses and have always be happy with it. You can have all the material in just one organized place, and read the discussion and comments of everybody.

Pros

- Easy to use, very simple interface.
- Get email notifications of relevant changes.
- Organize forums into topics and weeks.

It's the best way to organize the material of a course, and give a simple platform for online discussion.

Cons

- Sometimes it's a bit heavy and slow.
- The search feature is not the best.

Moodle

it was good apart from the part it was hard to follow through when it was all new to moodle

Pros

The way it can organize different content categories and it is open source and it has very useful plugins integrated into it to support online learning platform. The community support is great to solve different problems

Cons

It is bit difficult for new users to get going with the system at the very beginning. And can't find the history when a user is unenrolled from a course

better before the update

Fairly easy to use.

Pros

The way you are able to organize lesson plans and activities, each with their own links and ability to provide external links.

Cons

Since the update, the organization is chaotic. The ability to communicate with instructors through the program is not very functional.

Useful for students

Moodle is useful for students and if I attended college again I would be happy to have it as a student portal again.

Pros

The college I attended used this software for student's academic portal and I thought it was well organized and user friendly. I used it for four years and it had many functions.

Cons

It could be more visually appealing than it is.

Online Teaching Platform

long distance teaching

Pros

Moodle is a great tool to develop online content for online courses and distance teaching. It is performatted for this kind of activity to it is very easy to get going.

There are some configuration issues that can cause problems depending on how your defaults are set. For example, upload limits on files such as videos and powerpoint presentation with audio. So you need to know how to change those or you end up only being able to use small multimedia files.

Otherwise, you can upload lots of different content, run quizzes, Q&A forums, assign homework and assignments and keep track of marking. It is a great platform for teaching.

Cons

It does take a bit of learning to figure out how to use all the features. The messaging features in our implementation were a bit confusing as you didn't know if you were sending an internal message to the student's account versus sending an email to their registered email address. Again, most of these issues can be addressed by using the system enough to get comfortable with how it works.

Moodle - not terrible, not great

Allows dispersion of course materials.

Pros

It makes files such as documents, PDF, videos accessible to many users. Can track grades and allow for submission of files/assignments.

Cons

Layout, homepage design, functionality of different tabs (grades, attendance, etc). Not easy to navigate quickly. Not easy to find different features. Not visually appealing. Messaging system is not efficient to read new messages.

Online Learning Made Easy

Pros

Moodle is fantastic in terms of a free cloud based LMS. It allows me to make courses for my employees and assign certificates for our compliance department. Very easy to use and offers a wide variety of features.

Cons

It could use a little more customization ability but this can be solved by hosting the platform on an internal server.

Good to Use - a bit behind

Overall it’s positive. The cons can easily be worked around if you take the time to double check the action you wanted completed has actually been done.

Pros

Nice layout. It’s easy to navigate round and fairly fast.

Cons

User feedback is lagging. When I do something I expect a reaction, prompt or anything to say my action has been successful. However with Moodle some actions don’t give any feedback which has resulted in delayed submissions / items being saved as drafts unintentionally.
