Gabriela González

It is a manager of virtual classrooms, of academic resources, it is very interesting and recognized.

2018-04-20

Pros

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

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.

Offline teaching and learning

Pros

free (open source), flexible Course Management System, great community support, robust and easy to use

Cons

Not in my language, yet, so many users of the application would strongly resend it. Also a down-side, you have to learn how to use each (of many) tool most appropriately to get the best results

Beautifully put together, easy to use.

2018-04-30

The amount of organization, planning, and time management that Moodle offers makes my life so much easier than ever before.

Pros

Moodle allows you to create your own courses, evaluations, forums, and classes with ease.

Cons

Although Moodle is typically easy to access and use, if you are attempting to create minor course details or smaller classes, the minute customization tools can be difficult to access.

I was a student for 4 years at an institution that ran the lowest tier

2016-05-24

Pros

It got the very basic job of a learning management system done.

Cons

It's not very intuitive or user friendly. Typically the platform that delivers great content should go relatively unnoticed. In other words, it shouldn't cause distraction by being too flashy or too clunky that it's hard to navigate. Moodle was the latter.

Moodle LMS

2018-06-25

Pros

Moodle is a fun learning management program that is easy to use and manage for online courses. It connects with a ton of third-party applications to introduce innovative learning technologies and eLearning.

Cons

The only Con to using Moodle is that it isnt an application that people normally use on a daily basis, so there will be a little training required for both student and instructor.

It is a learning management system

2018-04-06

You can work with your school on this. And if you don't like this platform you can try others.

Pros

I like that you can transfer your material to other learning management systems.

Cons

And I don't get the zip file to export easily.

Easy to use and you can't beat the price

2017-12-05

I found it easy to learn on my own, build a course, and interact with students through Moodle.

Pros

I used this software to teach a fully online course for a couple of years.

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).

Robust Open Source Learning Management System

2018-07-01

Moodle is an excellent choice if your organization is limiting itself to the consideration of open-source options.

Pros

As open source learning management systems (LMS) go, Moodle is the best, especially for higher education.

Cons

Moodle requires substantial developer work to implement, run, and update efficiently and effectively. Most smaller schools and colleges will find (as I did) that they need a third-party host, which will relieve that responsibility but significantly reduce the customization options and timeliness of updates.

A platform to support teaching. Is very complete. I had an excellent experience.

2018-03-23

Pros

It allows to publish resources to so many courses the teacher has open.

Cons

Each educational institution that uses it must have a good server for the platform so that it meets technical storage requirements. The management of so many user accounts falls on each institution and that is why it must be careful to have good personnel for these required services.

Moodle open source LMS

2018-03-13

Virtual LMS that is free and easy to use.

Pros

There are also features for backing up you class page which personally I find useful so when I build a new course I can import things I have previously done.

Cons

Also, Moodle is a little dated and lacks some of the slick advancements in user interface some of its paid competitors have.

A cost-effective

2018-01-17

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

Pros

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.

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.

A useful tool for university students

2018-05-20

Pros

In addition, Universities can put their local Moodle and thus be able to create their platforms for specific courses at the same university, the courses can be opened to students who are anywhere on the planet.

Cons

Some activities can be a bit mechanical, depending a lot on the instructional design.

It's easy to get lost in it, very complicated

2018-05-10

Try to maintain a university course at a distance, but it brings more problems than it solved, I do not recommend it

Pros

Moodle platform is a simple and practical way, so that Teachers and Students who are in remote areas could share their experiences and stay relatively in communication.

Cons

To access it, it is recommended to carry out a course for its management and compression, In addition to having support staff that can attend, which, in my opinion, It is a lot of "logistics" to keep teachers informed with their students, Many other platforms simulate the experience better and without so much protocol.

There are so many clicks involved when making quizzes and exams. Having to go back and forth between the same pages is really not ideal.

It has helped me to manage courses easily, and to have a good communication with my employees at the time of training them.

Pros

Moodle gives good communication between students and teachers during class time and outside as well.

Cons

It has updates without prior notice that affect the student sometimes.
