Implementing MOODLE

Learnforever

I’m in the middle of a major new MOODLE implementation. For those who don’t know, MOODLE is an open source virtual learning environment; the initials stand for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment, although enthusiasts (and there seem to be plenty of them) also use “moodle” as a verb.

Open Source life, LMSs beyond Moodle

No doubt this is due to the prominence of Moodle which appears to be breaking out in to mainstream consciousness - popular British computing weekly MicroMart is even carrying an article extolling its virtues this week. Moodle is of course THE open source e-learning item of the moment*1. hate that term, but if that means it helps manage classroom learning (so is a true LMS rather than an LCMS) then that's cool. The demo site of Dokeos set up by Kineo featured a chat room and even a virtual classroom. From the limited screenshots it looks pretty. Marvellous.

One Week to Select an LMS – No Way

Tony Karrer

This post was based on an inquiry that I received from someone who manages their current LMS implementation that is based on Moodle with some customization. They are doing a combination of virtual classroom training (via WebEx) and self-paced eLearning. And the person who asked the question tells me: My managers have asked me to find alternatives to Moodle that are more user friendly and that are easier to update and manage. There has been fantastic comments around Learning Management System Easy of Use. Now, I hate to say that this is all too common a situation.

What Makes an LMS Easy to Use?

Tony Karrer

They are doing a combination of virtual classroom training (via WebEx) and self-paced eLearning. They currently use Moodle as an LMS with some customizations. And the person who asked the question tells me: My managers have asked me to find alternatives to Moodle that are more user friendly and that are easier to update and manage. I’ve discussed many times about dissatisfaction with LMS: LMS Satisfaction Features and Barriers LMS Dissatisfaction on the Rise and even a bit about the disconnect between an LMS and what things most users want / need: Do You WANT an LMS?

E-learning on a shoestring

Clive on Learning

Use Moodle as a delivery platform, typically externally hosted, perhaps with some customisation. Smaller companies don't need full LMS functionality, so Moodle (perhaps with some extra goodies) will do this job adequately. Training providers will have no trouble using Moodle to provide course web sites to support traditional, e or blended solutions. Train up as many of the training team as possible in content design and development, setting up courses in Moodle and facilitating in a virtual classroom. Smaller organisations were essentially priced out.

Where are open source learning applications?

Tony Karrer

In it he points to the learning space and says that the current status of open-source learning applications is: Innovators - Elgg Learning Landscape and several others Early Adopters - Moodle and a few others Early Majority - nobody Late Majority - forget about it I would tend to agree with him that there are relatively few open-source learning applications, but would add a few thoughts. Good post by Harold Jarche - Where are open source learning applications? So, we should naturally expect to see open source solutions emerge where we see relatively stable feature sets.
