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.

Moodle as a student and administrator

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

There is not really any cons about Moodle. It is a highly satisfying product that is worth a try.

Pros

First: It is free!

As a student: it has easy navigation, provides a dashboard with all the related courses currently enrolled, it has a calendar on the right highlighting all the upcoming submission dates. It also notifies us about the upcoming events the lecture has set. All the information are arranged in a neat format. It shows the online users. It has portfolio option, makes it easy to keep track of all our works. It also has email facilities so we can email other users.

As an administrator: There is so many features incorporated in Moodle! The teacher has the power to design the moodle course in however way they want: It integrates SCORM packages, documents, videos, links, quiz, different grading systems (average/individual) and the grade history of the students on the platform. The teacher also has the flexibility to program when to make one lesson visible (by presetting the time and date), when to close assignment submission past deadline automatically, or to create specific forums and events. One can use moodle to run a class or to act as a learning repertoire. There is also the option to add a chat room for a particular lesson. What I also appreciate is the feature to monitor course participation and activity log report of students. By including keys to the lessons, we can control who we give access to the contents on the forum. Thus it can either be open contents or private. The power lies in the hands of the administrator.

Cons

The chat feature should be an in-built feature rather than a pop-out screen available only when the administrator adds it as part of a lesson.

I would not recommend Moodle, unless it is given to you by your educational institution.

Pros

Uploads and calendar of activities are good, but all needs to be uploaded and very little copy and paste features.

Cons

Grading is very confusing. Weighted averages are not allowed, or at least I have not found a way to do it yet. Loading assignments is difficult and sometime has to be repeated. I am not a fan of the tracking ability because of the issues with grading. Also, if you are working with international students, you have to enter their American names every time.

Generally its an interactive and friendly tool which is easy to use and support all forms of learning...

Pros

It is one of the best free (open source) LMS available in the market i.e. if you have an experienced IT team. It requires coding & customization, so if you have a great IT team then Moodle can do wonders for you.

Cons

You would need an IT team to make even small changes in your operations. A lot of companies do not look out for LMS that would require another team to manage & maintain the functionalities which includes feature updates, bug fixes, server maintenance, storage & security, to name a few.

I'm very grateful with the Moodle contributors, because they have shown the World that open source and quality software can be made, and Moodle is one of them.

I began with an overall customer satisfaction of about 95% and nowadays I have reached 98%. To get there I have develop new content, better content and use the facilities and plugins that Moodle provides accompanied by an excellent support to my students. I'm working to reach a better percentage in the next months.

Moodle was my choice ten years ago and I expect to keep working with Moodle the years to come.

Pros

I used moodle as a student in middle/high school and as a student and TA in college. It is easy to navigate for the teacher and student. It also has class participants, grades, and various types of forums to post such as quizzes, anonymous feedback, readings, and more.

Cons

It was useful for basic info in grade school such as submitting and grading assignments. But in university it is not the easiest for online classes and grading. It’s difficult to assign specific percents to assignments instead of by larger sections. It is very basic, with posts & replies. It would be helpful to be able to link easier or mention a person/other other post to notify them because it doesn’t have that right now. Also, the overall look is outdated.

Moodle is helpful for getting course info and submitting assignments. You also have coursework organized into classes and years, which is nice!

Slow/difficult to upload grades. I have had many grades deleted when uploading them for a class. I also found it hard to see the name of the student when I scrolled right to upload grades.

Good LMS with room for improvement

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

At my university, Moodle was considered a step up from the previous LMS software that had been used. Nevertheless, the general consensus about Moodle was lukewarm at best due to the software's lack of intuitiveness and its navigational issues. With some improvements in those areas, I think it could be a great, rather than a good, LMS option.

Pros

Pleasant and clean interface, allows for user customization up to a certain point, has many of the features and capabilities that you'd expect of an LMS software at the university level.

Cons

Moodle is definitely not the most intuitive software (although, I'm not sure that I could really say that about any of the LMS softwares I've used). The navigation menus in particular could be improved, as I often found it difficult to arrive at the page that I wanted to and consequently had to memorize the appropriate routes through the software's menus.

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.

It is a support platform for educational activities easy to use.
In addition to offering the management system for courses specific to an educational institution,
it also offers Moodle.net where you can create and search for free courses for your users.

Cons

You can point out that it is a software dependent on a good Internet connection since everything is stored in the cloud. Disadvantages of Moodle itself may be that it expanded in such a way that the teacher has more freedom to select certain contents for particular students, since nowadays the classes and resources are presented to all students equally. It is simply a proposal for the future selection of content per student.

Right now this software is useful if you do not have a good internet connection. Maybe for a country in development or distance organization, because is a good software to start an online education but is not the better

Pros

This is an Open Source software, then you need a server, to use it. Many Organization uses it because is one of first software designed in order to do Online Education. Moodle just help with a minimum of invest start with an Online Education.

Cons

In overall, this app is good when you have your own server, maybe for an intranet o an internal use without use internet. Moodle is designed to help does case. But if you have a good internet connection maybe you have better solutions. Just keep in mind the administration of this require a lot hour spend learning how to use it.

Moodle comes with the basics you will need to run a private online learning environment and a next-to-nothing cost. Except for your time or that of a developers to set it up and maintain it. It is #1 for this reason.

Cons

If you are looking for someone to hold your hand on this one, skip Moodle. If you are looking for something that is massively customisable, skip Moodle. If you want in-depth reporting features, skip Moodle. There is a learning curve and a bit of trial and error to get Moodle to do what you want.

From a students perspective, the user experience is clunky. But it gets the job done.

It's free. If you are able to hire full-time administrator for your school or university - go for it! If you are small or medium business - carefully consider costs.

Pros

The main advantages of Moodle are as follows: it is free, it is de-facto standard of Learning Management System for academia, and this solution has been a while around, so there are plenty of administrators, software developers and just people familiar with it.

Cons

Moodle tries hardly to be relevant, but it is difficult by software that was started back in 1990s. It has too many features, it is hard to get something decent to work with it out of the box. You can force Moodle to work, but it still will take too much effort. Our client tried to implement this as LMS, but decided to opt for another option.

Being able to use all the educational features that the application has to offer, program them and modify them to your liking and according to your needs since it is open source, that is why I recommend and use it frequently.

Pros

This tool has years in the market, is the one that I have used on repeated occasions to prepare sites to educate and prepare new staff, or specialize those who have time in the company, has all the necessary functionalities to prepare a quality education , you can do exams by subject, schedule delivery of tasks, get averages of the participants and more, it really has many features that help you carry out a complete development in education, applicable to any work area.

Cons

Maybe as it is a very global tool, focused on education in general, it is not totally optimal for the professional or business area, since it has many basic functionalities that no longer apply for a company and modify all the code to specialize it, it makes add a lot of development time, but if you do it right you have a powerful educational tool.

Pros

It's widely used, so you can usually find a use-case that is similar to what you need. Once you're familiar with how it's built/set up, you can do a lot with it.

Cons

Sometimes the customization can lead you down a rabbit hole...at the end of which you can't really get support...

Great features at low cost!

Pros

I've been using Moodle for 6 years in my practice as an educator. It has been a total game changer for me in organizing units/resources/assignments, assessment, and making it possible to teach effectively in a 1 to 1 environment. From facilitating online forums to creating end of term assessments, Moodle has made it easy to move the classroom into the 21st century through an intuitive, customizable, and easy to master, open source platform. I've used blackboard, desire2learn, and sampled other online class formats, but Moodle is easily the most cost effective and offers similar capabilities. There really is not much you can't do in terms of managing curriculum and assignments in moodle.

Cons

The one con of Moodle is feedback and creating assessments. While these features are possible and I do use them, I often have found other programs which do this better. However, they also cost considerably more which is something to consider. While some of the ease of use is lacking in moodle, and certain features can be a headache, I feel the benefits often outweigh other programs which do similar things at higher cost.

Pros

I like that it is user-friendly and free. I like being able to see the pdf assignments without having to click on them to open.

Cons

The only issue I've had is that when there are updates to the program it takes a little while to get used to the changes.
