Awesome Learning Management System

I'm overly excited about Moodle because it offers just everything to support all educational institutions to deliver high-quality services to their students.
It's unbelievable to know that you can use Moodle for free if you have your own server and technical team.

Pros

I love its flexibility to allow you to customize the UI and other features to meet your exact taste and requirement. And most importantly, it supports all kinds of projects from basic to more advanced features.

Cons

I wish the support could make available more documentation or content to address common technical problems.

Solid choice

We run and manage our own Moodle installation. As we have that capability, it has greatly reduced the financial commitment necessary to implement the software. As we are a non-profit, this is a huge factor in our decisions regarding software options.

Pros

We have been using Moodle for well over a decade to handle our continuing education program. It's flexible enough to generally handle most styles and formats in some way.

Cons

The overall look of Moodle has remained constant over the years. A good chunk of that is handled by the theme you implement, however, the base interface is mostly the same regardless of the theme used. Deviating from that is not a path for the timid.

Sakai LMS and CANVAS

Reasons for Switching to Moodle

Moodle just turned out to be a better fit. The interface worked better for us, and the system requirements made it simple enough to jump in.

Oodles of Moodles!

Pros

The Moodle LMS was among the first to offer modular add-ons and incorporation of existing curricula. The modular design is the best feature, in my opinion, as it allows "tweaking" of capabilities.

Cons

Occasionally the linked pages create confusion and on rare occasions, the password resets fail to deliver e-mails.

Moodle

I am very satisfied on it. My clasess and the material that I share with my students has been never so easy to manage, interact and grade.

Pros

I have been using it for about 10 years from now. I celebrate that the platform is in constant development, I appreciate the FAQ, guides and tutorials. It allows me to plan, organise and execute with a high rate of excellence my lessons and I can monitor every students development in a peer to peer environment

Cons

You need some time to gain expertise in the platform
