A Great Tool for Learning Management

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: This system has been good for the course I've taught.

Pros:

Moodle is easy to use. I thought moving from Blackboard would be a challenge, but the Moodle features are user-friendly, and we have a great tech team for help!

Cons:

Nothing comes to mind. We've used this system for one full year. Though I'm yet learning more about it, I've not found anything insurmountable at this time.

Basic tool for distance learning

4.0 4 months ago

Comments: We used the tool since first versions, and i can say it's good enough to sustain training need for an amount like 5-10 courses in parallel with an affordable price.

Pros:

Affordable. Fast enough. Smooth access to courses and content.

Cons:

Lack of graphical interface. Very hard to backend administration and also very often updates that consume a lot of time (database technology updates too often).

Moodle LMS

5.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

Moodle is great for a company/organization looking for complete control and customization. We serve kids, so this is a great plus for us. I love the available integrations and the clean look of the interface.

Cons:

As I mentioned in the pros, Moodle LMS is very customizable. However, because there are so many customization options it can be overwhelming for a company that doesn't need a lot of features. I also recommend choosing Moodle LMS if you have a tech person on your team as coding is involved in setting things up.
