This is a great video from Humboldt University and California State University, Monterey Bay focused on a colleges decision about adopting a new LMS.  It’s about the research study that teachers utilized to compare a (unnamed) commercial LMS with Moodle and their findings.  It’s about 10 minutes and is one of the first thorough (and “scientific”, as it is was a quasi-double-blind design) studies that I’ve seen comparing Moodle and another LMS objectively.  The video narration is relatively unbiased and portrays the positives and negatives of both LMSs.

The beauty of having Moodle is that we can alter the technology as long as our university has those capabilities,

Says one of the speakers in the video.

Some key findings:

  • No statistical differences in comparing student outcomes and learning between the commercial LMS and Moodle LMS
  • Students preferred Moodle 2 to 1
  • Capabilities are similar
  • Great environment for student programmers to augment system
  • Less expensive
