Many people have asked why I use Moodle and not one of the many other Learning Management Systems. I’ve been thinking about this lately and it comes down to the following:
- I am a tinkerer and decided to try Moodle shortly after it was released
- I am now very familiar with how Moodle works so am comfortable working in it
- I really like to have full control of the environments I work in. Moodle is Open Source and I have always controlled the Moodle installation I work with
- My students prefer Moodle over the other option on campus and the faculty using my Moodle do as well
I just upgraded our Moodle to the latest version 2.5 and really have not had time to check out what is new. We currently have just five faculty members hosting courses over the past year since I resurrected the setup and are looking for more to “come on board”. If you are interested, feel free to contact me and I can get you setup.
