Comment from those who selected Moodle as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2019

  • “An OK application but it is a little clunky when you put it up against the opposition” Curriculum Leader, UK
  • “I basically do not learn via a Moodle platform, but we use it to deliver our content and courses, and so it is important for me, too.” Learning Consultant, Germany
  • “Moodle is a very versatile VLE which allows you to build interactive content for learners as well as sharing resources. I particularly like the blog, wiki and discussion forum elements.” Lecturer, UK
  • “Moodle is built for e-learning form the ground up. It is open source and free with lots of additional plug ins to enhance the user experience.” Course Creator, USA
  • “We use Moodle in school to make practice in languages and maths easier and we use it to do digital tests.” Teacher Trainer, Netherlands
  • “Since coming across Moodle I have created a Staff CPD hub. I have worked with in-house knowledge experts to create online content for our CPD hub and our ILT champ has designed digital badges that staff can earn upon completion of a course. Who doesn’t love a digital badge?” Learning & Development Coordinator, UK
  • “My favourite LMS:)” Team Manager, Spain
  • “Stability. Just keeps on working and reliable.” Manager Professional Development, Australia
