Moodle is a course management system for producing high-quality Internet-based courses that promote connected knowing and meaningful collaboration. This Open Source application offers a Free alternative to commercial software such as WebCT and Blackboard. Written in PHP, it runs on Linux, Unix, Windows, Mac OS X or Netware 6, using MySQL or PostgreSQL. Courses are easily built up using activity modules such as forums, chat, journals, quizzes, surveys, assignments, resources, choices, glossaries, lessons and workshops. Moodle has native support for easily displaying multimedia including Flash, MP3, video etc. The interface can be used in over 70 native language translations. New languages, plug-in modules and CSS-based themes are being actively developed by a growing community. See our site for details.

I acquired ScriptDorks in 2012 which grew into a popular software development company. Over the years better software became available and all ScriptDorks' projects, such as Exitlinks and Alpha-Bids are now open source. I now add reviews on various third party software scripts I come across through my work at Thexyz.

    I have been dealing with e-learning systems since 1995, and have developed mainly for WebCT (the best commercial system I know). Moodle is simply better. Easier, more flexible and topic oriented (instead of being function oriented, as WebCT). It has a strong pedagogical and technical foundation. More that 300 institutions from more than 50 countries are using it yet. It is translated into 32 languages. It works with MySQL or PostgreSQL. The best LMS I know, and continuosly improving. 🙂

    I have never seen such an in depth learning tool! And for free! The first opportunity I get, I will donate whatever I can to keep this machine alive. Courses can be categorized, just about anything can be imported, teachers are easily assigned, and much more! Definitately a 5 star solution to distance learning.

    I use moodle in a 1 to 1 environment with middle school students. The lessons are easy to set up and the students really like the interactivity. The price of moodle (free) and the ease of set up makes it affordable to use as warm-up and closure exercises.

    The author has done an admirable work with Moodle. The software is extremely easy to use and it offers practically everything a teacher needs to set it up. Thanks a lot for the excellent work! Rubens
