Comments: 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.

Pros: Moodle has awesome features backed by a robust community . It is upgraded twice a year with major updates , making it one of the most secure LMS .

The large community ensures you have access to a huge pile of plugs to choose from and help on almost any topic is available in the community.

Cons: The cons are not that of moodle but what comes with being open source. If you are comfortable with the out of the box features it offers , you won't face too many problems but if you want customisations , it can be a nightmare and you might have to get professional help .

Pros: I can access it anywhere with internet, it's secure so I don't have to worry about info or class related stuff to go missing, and it's the most user friendly online learning platform I've used, especially compatered to BlackBoard.

Pros: Open-source software is always a plus if you have the resources and know-how to manage it. Hosting is also relatively cheap if that's what you need. Moodle also has a lot of great plugins and a host of online information and documentation so the help is there if you're willing to look for it. From a student's perspective, Moodle is pretty easy to navigate and holds all relevant student info, including class information, participants, group forums (good for studying/collaboration), quizzes, feedback portal, grades, etc. Very easy to submit assignments.

Cons: Implementing and managing Moodle is relatively easy if you have the available IT resources. If not, it's very resource-laden. Looks are a bit outdated and it would be nice for students to be more easily notified if other users comment on their posts/replies in the group forums without having to be logged in. Mobile capability could be better.

Comments: 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.

Comments: 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.

Cons: I found that like many online programs it can have its quirks. I would have times that there was potentially human error with utilizing the program, but it was confusing as well as there was a lack of training.

Pros: I am using the software for about a decade now and it improved a lot! Moodle is a very capable LMS, free and opensource, with a good number of very useful resources for teachers/instructors and leaners. There is a huge community of users and developers to get support from and share experience. Furthermore, one can get a taste of this LMS or even in deep, in-pracice, learning how to use it using free online resources, such as https://moodle.org/demo/. Although it is mainly developed for education, it can be tailored to be used as other kind of content management system, such as general websites and a plataform for team-based activities online. Worth to note, Moodle is developed with socio-constructivism philosophy, and this makes a significant difference in terms of effective improvement of the teaching and learning activities using technology resources.

Cons: Some teachers may find it a little cumbersome because of the high number of features and customization options. The interface is a little outdated and could be more intuitive and flexible. Some features requires TI expertise to be implemented and requires server-side access. Finally, upgrades (notably major ones) must be carefully planned and executed to avoid data loss.

Overall: Because it is free, my Institution (public University in Brazil) could afford to implement it to improve the quality of undergrad courses.

Pros: I primarily experienced Moodle as a user but also worked directly with the team who administered it as well as faculty members who used it. Moodle is a more than adequate LMS that makes it easy for faculty and students to share documents and interact fully online. Moodle can be set up simply for ease of use for non-technical faculty as well as extended with modules to fit the needs of the most tech savvy of faculty.

Cons: Storage issues can quickly become a problem. The use of third-party vendors is sometimes required if you have a limited staff to dedicate to Moodle administration. Moodle doesn't have the 'sex-appeal' of some other LMSes.

Every time I had a problem or question Moodle's customer service replied very fast and helped me with whatever I was struggling with. I used this software for my university and highly recommend it.

Cons: My university stopped using Moodle. There are other software's for Universities that I believe work better than Moodle and have more advanced features. For example, you can't calculate your final grade for a class with a possible grade on a certain assignment.

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.

Pros: Been using moodle for many years in my classroom, is very versatile. I can load many different kinds of files, create folders, make pages including html editing, create urls and quizzes. My kids have a secure login through the school district protecting their privacy. It gives me so many options for curriculum content for students, a one-stop location. For my students to find the entire course. I use this for teaching Professional Development courses as well. I prefer this format from others for classroom use.

Cons: Every update requires an adjustment for me. I've used the chat feature and it is really slow, I do think this is more a server issue for us. Otherwise I love it.

Comments: 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.

Pros: I used this software to teach a fully online course for a couple of years. Despite having no formal training, I found it easy to learn on my own (although I'm sure it had capabilities I never discovered). When I came to a problem I couldn't figure out through trial and error, the website usually provided the solution. I used the assignments, lesson, and quiz features the most, and found them to be straightforward, easy to set up, and versatile enough to fit my needs. The student interface is also simple to follow, and I appreciate the options to hide and reveal features automatically. I also like the metadata that Moodle collects on student usage, though I did not get to explore it or use it as much as I would have liked.

Cons: The most challenging part for me was to follow the various threads in the discussion forums, although I believe the students did not have the same problem (they were likely more tech savvy than me). While I found the grading to be easy, for the most part, I found the advanced grading options (such as rubrics) to be confusing.

Overall: Compared to other Learning Management Software that I have used, this one is my favorite. I found it easy to learn on my own, build a course, and interact with students through Moodle. I found the email feature to be very useful when sending grades out to the students because I did not have to go back and forth from my personal email account to Moodle to look up contact information. It made assignment submissions easier too.

Great for managing student and lecture affairs in tertiary institutions.

Pros: When installed on a good server and once it is setup, then leave it alone and it will run flawless. I update moodle every 6 months for security and feature improvements. It has not ever crashed on me. You have to follow the installation instructions exactly. Always create backups.

I use supermicro motherboards with xeon processors and lots of ram. We have a little over 200 college students and they like using it.

Some teachers say that Blackboard might have a few more features. Moodle is free and can do anthing we want.

The only extra apps we install in moodle is the attendance and collapsed topics. No problems with these.

We mainly use the default settings on the server install and also on moodle. We use one of the skins that come with it.

We have one person that creates the classes each semester and helps the teachers if they need it.

Once your classes are setup, you can copy them over for the next semester.

Cons: None that we have.

Basically stick with the basic setup. Do as little experimenting as possible with different addons. Then just let it run.

Ours only goes down when I install updates or a large power outtage.

Overall: Its Free, powerful and user friendly. It constantly get updates and improvements.

There are basically no features, and the user has to know exactly where to go to get to most things.

Pros: I can't think of anything to be honest. I suppose it's an ok software for schools to use if they don't have the resources for anything else and this is available for free?

Cons: I dislike the fact that there's no customer service available, that there are less features than a google team drive even, that it's extremely hard to use for my professors apparently meaning that they don't post assignments on there so I don't know what I'm supposed to do. Basically, my school has it and the only thing that it's used for is to separate the syllabi of different courses I'm taking into different sections. You could do that with google drive.

Pros: Moodle is an excellent platform for schools and universities. We switched recently and it is a big upgrade. Our students can use the platform much easier without needing help on where to find things or upload information.

Cons: At times design could be better. It is straightforward but may be limited in visuals, graphics, or connecting with flash. But overall strong.

Overall: Our school runs on Moodle and is essential to our school.

Cons: I feel like they have a ton of features, but accessing them and using them is difficult. I think I'm pretty tech savvy but have to do quite a bit of research to figure out how to use a new feature on Moodle.

Comments: 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.

Pros: Moodle allows courses to be taught online with students distributed over distance. Many parts of it's interface, particularly overviews of grades and status of various students, is helpful.

Cons: Moodle and it's user interface is quite complex, undoubtedly in attempt to add flexibility for different types of courses. In my experience teaching with it, though, many users, especially older, non-computer savvy students, have difficulty navigating to find the various parts required of them in the coursework.

Overall: Moodle's complexity may be confusing for users, but in the end it allows good and successful teaching over distance.

Pros: Free (except to host it-see below in cons)
Lots of free articles and you tube videos to help you with it.

If you are task oriented, you can set up an entire course with this program including videos, pictures, web pages, test, SCORM packages, whatever you want. I even have courses within courses.

You can train others to use it as well. Administration is pretty good so you can have others create courses or content, but not have the ability to screw things up.

Cons: Clunky and scroll of death are common descriptors of the program.

It is free and there are updates coming out all the time, but you better have a good IT department that is willing to host the site, manage the server, etc. My webpage guy at my fire department set this up for me for free. Then I got a bill from someone that he had to hire to set it up because it was over his head. I don't dare ask him to upgrade it because I will probably get another bill. But I can still use it, just some of the newer features don't work. As soon as I can, I will try to get my City's IT department to host it for me on a newer server.

There are quite a few Moodle partners who will host it for you, but they are extremely expensive.

I tried to host it myself with a free web hosting service and it worked for a day or two until I got notice that I had violated the user agreement. I don't know how, maybe I used up too much space. Don't know.

Comments: 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!

Pros: Covers most of what es expected on an eLearning platform. provides all functions, mainly adapted by other vendors and marketed very expensive, although Moodle is Open Source. I would rather invest in professional developers and use Moodle as base platform and customize to suite demands

Cons: The Integration with Oracle is supposed to be slow. I haven't tested that yet, so not sure. Mainly, Moodle users are large, for Colleges and Universities, and Oracle is supposed to handle large user environments better and faster responsivenes, so i expect that the Moodle Development Community does something to make the use of Oracle as Backend better

Overall: Least time of development, small Developer Team, no expertise in HTML/ CSS/ XML, etx required. nevertheless, having them can help you dive deeper into the devlopment schemes and have real fun. Very fast time to GO-LIVE, ROI for development is faster reached, fantastique and responsive.

I have used Moodle as a user and as an administrator, therefore, I can attest to this fact. I have been using Moodle for five years now and think it to be superior than other software out there.

Pros: I most like Moodles organization and intuitive features. It's easy to organize and deliver content to students. Once you have a little bit of experience, there's not much in the classroom that you can't do with moodle in some way shape or form. The Organization,Grading, feedback, compatability, and assessment features make moodle a must for anyone moving into a digitized learning space or 1 to 1 environment.

Cons: While moodle is not perfect and can be a bit difficult to figure out in some regards, its the most cost effective platform I've seen for a digital learning space.

Overall: The greatest benefits are being able to manage and deliver content with the click of a button.

Pros: Moodle is low cost and very user friendly. I would say if you are comfortable using most social media platforms, you should adapt to Moodle with ease. Moodle also has a host of plugins which can be added to enhance the overall efficiency of the software. Shout out to: all the mass features. Overall, Moodle gives you bank for your buck. Larger LMS options are too expensive for smaller schools to afford. Moodle is helping to close the gap between cost and functionality.

Cons: Learning the ins and outs of the software can be a bit painstaking. Randomly, things may go wrong, and it takes a bit of time to dig through the online forums to resolve the issue. I guess this is kind of a pro and a con at the same time as the user community is really supportive. Also, the beta versions of some of the plugins can be a hit or miss with them working perfectly for some users but spotty for others.

Comments: 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.

Cons: There was this hype about Moodle being free... all the support you need in on the internet. Yes it is free and there is a reason for that. When looking for support, there is a lot out there as long as it is common things, any time you get to the nitty gritty of something you are on your own. Then free? It was not really free. Setup costs, support costs, etc..etc...If you go it alone be prepared to spend hours and days trying to understand the beast. The user interface looked old fashioned. Everything about the look and feel was ugly.

Overall: Nothing. I was way to difficult to work with. Unless you have a company that sets it up for you, expect to struggle.

The generation of tests and evaluations is very simple with the creation of activities. It has the chat, the Forum, and the wikis as tools of support to the collaborative work. It has the sending of emails to the working group or to the course. Split a course into workgroups

Pros: Moodle makes it easy for me to distribute handouts and reading materials, and take up student work all in one place. It saves time by allowing me to load materials my students need in a daily basis. It helps students keep track of their assignments and all handouts. If a student misplaces a handout or reading materials, all they have to do is go to my Moodle site and download the documents again.
I also love how all documents students submit through Moodle have a time stamp. This helps me hold kids accountable to deadlines and keeps a record that is useful for sharing with parents during conferences.
The other feature I really like is being able to load as many documents as I want on my site and then using the hide feature to keep students from being able to see the documents until they are needed.

Cons: I haven't yet mastered how to use Moodle to give my students tests. I have tried to figure it out on my own without training, but I have not had a lot of success.

Comments: Moodle is a very useful platform for e-learning. It has everything to teach online. I can recognize 3 levels of users for this software. - The administrator who is in charge to set up the environment and moodle experience for other users. - The teacher who is going to use tools to make an online course exciting, and - The student that will enjoy the course and participate in it though the collaborative tools. If you can do the work of the 2 first levels, congratulations, you are a Moodle expert.

Pros: - You can manage a whole school or university in the academic area with Moodle and for the administrative help you have a big list of choices to get plugins or ERPs compatible with Moodle. - If you know how to use it is a wonderful experience for the teachers and students. - Once that you have the course online, it is a beautiful tool. - There is a lot of documentation and forums about Moodle that can help you to solve almost every issue that you will face using it.

Cons: - It's a free software but is difficult to install and maintain for a person who is not related with IT. So a good option is get it as a SaaS (software as a Service) paying for hosting and upgrades but having the experts doing it, so you can focus in the academic area. - You have to learn how to use it properly and it takes time. - Prepare a course is heavy and a hard work, there are some functionalities that could help us to do it easier, like be capable us to erase or move multiple objects at the same time.

Comments: This is in general good product to organize distant learning, yet, companies that want to have more detailed information about their workers' learning process will find this platform unsatisfying. Plus, it won't be good for big companies (>1000 employees)

Pros: It's free. It is good for basic distant learning processes such as loading scorm, tests, files.

Cons: I believe that it has many hidden functions and can be used in more advanced levels, but you have to spend so much time on to learn them all. Instructions on how to use them are more complicated than functions themselves. Then, Moodle is a local platform, you can't use it at home unless it's set up on your computer. Plus, because it's free, it doesn't have immediate customer support. You need to wait sometimes weeks to get help.

Pros: Easy to use cloud-based platform with all of the tools needed to design and manage online courses. All of my students found it easy to use. It enhanced their online learning experience and saved me hours of time by having all of the course content built into a single LMS platform.

Overall: As an online instructor, it took me just a few minutes to learn how to use this powerful LMS tool to update and revise an online summer intensive course that another professor had created. As an open-source product, there are tons of free "how-to" videos and documentation available to help guide any instructional designer.

Recommendations to other buyers: Check out their DEMO sites today and you will see for yourself why this is a better alternative to other LMS platforms!

Comments: That being said about no Moodle Help Center, I do enjoy the Moodle forums. I am able to Google my question and an answer is usually available in one of the forums.

Pros: I like how easy Moodle can be. There is a bit of a learning curve, but once you get over it, it's really easy to navigate through. I am and admin who is not all that tech savvy, but I am able to find certain functions or features I need since I already know how Moodle is set up.

Cons: I don't like the fact that there is no main help center for Moodle. Although, it is free so I can't really complain, but this was the only con I could think of!

Comments: Don't get me wrong, moodle is a great program, and serves a great purpose. It is a great way to manage a class, however in the modernizing world, it just needs a serious revamp. The UI is friendly but way to cluttered. The messaging feature is outdated. There seriously needs to be some new features added.

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Needs updated features Cluttered UI

Pros: the flexibility and the rapid improvements

Overall: The features allows and provide a choice of what one wants to use. I'ts fairly easy to use and the features allow teachers to achieve the pedagogical outcome. What's great is that each feature assist the tutor or facilitator to guide students in each level of thinking according to the Revised Bloom's Taxonomy. Our University just recently started to offer single courses fully fledged online, and we had very high results with an extremely low drop out rate.
Generally students are more that satisfied studying online [for the few courses we do offer online] and prefer this mode of study.

Pros: It's free, and for the most part easy to use.

Cons: Some of the features like cloning a course could be a little simpler.

Overall: I have been using Moodle for about 4 years now and have never had an issue. With it being free software there are a few limitations and things that I would do differently, but there are always ways around them. I love that you can use it for an entire course, or just use it for something as simple as a forum or discussion board.

Comments: Moodle either shines or fails depending on your institution! If they dedicate more resources to it, then it will shine as they will stay updated on it, but if you do not it will work horribly. At my institution I've found that its more on the lacking side and Moodle is riddled with bugs. This is mostly because they do not update it and do not want to spend the big bucks with support from Moodle or use Blackboard. Overall though its a good product that gives colleges an option to have an online presence.

If you are k-12, look for other solutions like Google Gsuite for education.

Comments: I have used Moodle as a student, let me say that experience was awful. The layout is outdated and not easy to use or manage (I do not know if this has changed or not). I remember it always had issues with examination part. Not calculating correctly or timing issues. Look for Google Forms and Google Classroom which are cloud-based and always updated. You will have great customer service as well.

Pros: Free, customizable, actively managed and updated, mobile friendly

Cons: Trouble finding answers to operational questions

Overall: I have worked with Moodle for 3 years now and there is nothing that matches it's versatility for teaching and learning within an LMS platform. It is open source and aggressively managed by a large group of dedicated people worldwide. As with all open source products, there is a learning curve and sometimes difficulty with finding the information you desire about a certain aspect of the program and platform, but the quest for information is not insurmountable.
Just to reiterate, the site is open source and when you download it and use it on your own hosted server, you may customize it any way you see fit. You just have to know what your doing, or being willing to learn.
Moodle even allows you to have them host your site for free and use it for no more than 50 people.

Overall: If you want to train employees, launch an online training course of your own, etc. Moodle is a great place to start. The help community is extensive and the software is stable and works great and meets the needs of our students perfectly!

Recommendations to other buyers: Its a great software to use to start with to see what needs your students have. It's expandable and available on any platform/browser/mobile device so a great start.

Comments: Moodle is a complex software which provides plenty of functions and configurations to customize your learning environment. Wide administrative options are and customizable interface is the best features of Moodle.
Moodle is not easy to administer. For advanced users, customization options might be satisfying but especially for teachers with limited IT experiences might get lots of options and configurations. Performance can also be a difficulty for huge systems after a while because Moodle is not providing any optimization tools for its own database. Administrators of huge systems should consider using 3rd party database customization tools for Moodle database.
