PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

I switched to Moodle from Blackboard-frankly, one of my best decisions! The Blackboard version we had was old, but the main differences are still visible. As you probably know, and LMS is either functional or not, there is no middle solution. Then, LMSs are different in terms of feature coverage, and that's what distiguishes good from great ones. Moodle is a great one (with a couple of flaws).

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

I think integration is an issue, I can't access the same number of book publishers' resources as I did on Blackboard. I wouldn't change the current features, but I'd add new ones instead: an improved PDF grading tool, commenting tools, Google Handout-like tools, or simply enough features to stop you from using third party software overall. This may sound exaggerated, but a 'Like' and a 'Comment' button like the ones on Facebook could be awesome, especially in terms of grading. You're not completely deprived from this right, you have a red and a green flag to indicate results, but up-to-date, I'm not sure whether students see this or not. I even wondered if they saw my comments, nobody responded so far. Or (just maybe) I'm one of those grumpy old teachers that students are afraid to talk to.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

Maybe we would have continued using Blackboard if Moodle was not for free. However, I'm happy we didn't. It is the first time for us to have an organized platform for traditionally seated and online attended classes.
