Moodle

  • April 05, 2016

What do you like best about the product?
From the perspective of a user I like that Moodle is easier to maneuver than other learning platforms I have used at other institutions. The visual layout of sites is appealing and can be formatted in a variety of different ways which allows you to personalize the site to meet the needs of any class and/or group.
What do you dislike about the product?
At my institution the format for Moodle changes each year so it is not possible to re-use a lot of material from the previous year. Rather, everything has to be re-entered and formatted somewhat. Editing Moodle is tedious and often particularly frustrating, and there just has to be an easier way to make editing a more streamlined process.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I use Moodle to communicate through the messenger functions, share course information, participate in forum discussions, and upload assignments. The variety of functions available for use through Moodle is impressive.

So customizable and easy to use

  • March 01, 2016

What do you like best about the product?
I worked with Moodle for many years as my learning management system when I taught online for a virtual school in Pennsylvania. It is so user-friendly both on the student and instructor side. It is fully customizable and free. Or at least it was when I used it.
What do you dislike about the product?
Moodle, at the time, did not carry the customer support as some of the bigger names like Blackboard. That may have changed in recent years. It was also very easy to mess things up with bad HTML code, so you need to know what you were doing.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Moodle was a fantastic solution to my former employer's learning management system needs. It was free and we were able to make it exactly what we wanted. I found the students were able to navigate easily and it wasn't very hard for teachers to learn how to make it unique to their classes and upload lessons.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are a smaller school, or need something that you can customize to every extent, Moodle is wonderful. For larger schools that may require a stronger technical support team, you may want to consider something that has a more widespread reputation and can offer the support.

Powerful Open Source LMS Platform!

  • February 11, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Open source software is always nice, but Moodle far exceeds expectations as a platform. It's modular, powerful and logically structure. It allows fine grained control over pretty much everything you can think of (including backend admin and developer portions), and is built to be expandable.
What do you dislike about the product?
Being built on PHP, I question how scalable it actually is for many concurrent users. Based on my experience, it doesn't seem to run crazy fast, and may require a server with pretty hefty resources to run quickly and well. A lot of these issues can probably be minimized with proper configuration in the backend, so that's something you'll definitely want to look at (if you know what you're doing).
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Web-based training courses
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Take a basic training course to really learn the platform.
