A few days ago I commented that I was going to be using Moodle. Unfortunately that project got changed to a PHP BB instead of Moodle. I’m disappointed I didn’t get to have the full experience with Moodle.
Moodle is a course management system designed to help educators who want to create quality online courses. The software is used all over the world by universities, schools, companies and independent teachers. Moodle is open source and completely free to use.
I didn’t see how easy or hard it was to upload material, create links, or do other tasks beyond what I already mentioned. However, I did have time to notice that it was much faster and more user friendly than Blackboard. There was none of the irritating and redundant clunkiness that makes using Blackboard so tedious. I also don’t know if Moodle has all the features that Blackboard has, including the ones I especially liked such as the grade book.
Have you had any experience with Moodle? I’d like to know what you think.
