Why Use Moodle Learning Management System?

April 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 236

Schools, colleges, universities, and corporate organizations use Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment), the largest open-source learning management platform to create quality online classes. Moodle Learning Management System can be easily installed on a computer to successfully organize and manage online classes and courses. This open-source Learning Management System empowers you to track the progress of individual students and enables you to create reports from the data collected online. You can, therefore, reduce the administrative overload as well as save time by using Learning Management Systems like Moodle.

Let's now discuss about the features and benefits of using Moodle Learning Management System.

24x7 Access to Class/Training Programs

Moodle provides 24x7 access to classes and training programs for learners residing in multiple cities or countries. Moodle is "Software as a Service" or a "Saas-based solution" that can be used by individuals at various locations and time zones having access to a computer with an internet connection.

Simplified Administration and Monitoring of Training Programs

The Moodle platform simplifies both administration and monitoring of courses since everything starting from class creation to student registration can be done online. Educators can easily monitor the registration status of each student as well as track their performance level from any remote location.

Comprehensive Reporting Mechanism to Check Effectiveness

Moodle has an in-built mechanism that can collect all registrant data automatically to store them on the organization's database. One can then generate a variety of online, easily downloadable reports based on such data and class-related information.

Schedule Emails to Remind Learners

Class and training program organizers can write emails and send them to all/specific batch of students to remind the registrants of a re-scheduled class/training session or for such similar reasons.

Conformity to Global Standards like SCORM to Allow Third Party Content

Moodle supports SCORM, which is a collection of standards and specifications for packaging content into a handy ZIP file. SCORM (Sharable Courseware Object Reference Model) is used to produce small chunks of reusable e-learning materials. SCORM-compliant course elements can be easily and quickly merged with other compliant elements to produce a highly effective repository of training materials.

Ability to Limit Class/Training Access to Ensure Security

Organizations that use Moodle to conduct their classes online can provide restricted access to their course content. By this practice, it ensures utmost security by limiting access to class or training courses to only a few users. This learning platform provides 128 bit secure SSL authentication to all learning and training materials thereby ensuring all courses and classes are conducted in a secured environment.

Customize Moodle to Suit Your Needs

Learning Management Systems such as Moodle can be easily customized to suit your needs. For example, you can change the layout of the Moodle pages to give it a look and feel like that of your own organizational website.
