The Colombian Moodlemoot is happening now, and Martin Dougiamas joined local Bogota, Colombian radio station, “The Cloud” to discuss the use of Moodle in the country and why it is one of the 10 top countries by use. Martin’s hypothesis,
My theory is that being an open source platform that people can customize, makes it more attractive. Education in Colombia, especially private universities, tries to take advantage of this and for that reason, perhaps, is high penetration in Colombia
They also touch on open source vs closed source software and if Moodle would ever revert to a closed system.
