    Hi there Rob

    yes we recently began using moodle as our learning environment – I am beginning to get my head around using it creatively, but in comparison to other VLEs I have used it aready showing great promise. Apart from being a free package – so costs are minimal – the tools for learning and collaborating with are fantastic – I am exploring the potential of the wiki tool currently – a shared authoring function that allows users to co-create web pages very easily and quickly (wikiwiki is Hawaiian for quick) – loads of potential there from preparation prior to meetings to creating live portfolios of resources. It is intuitive and logical for both course creators and participants.

    I’d like to give you feedback on its installation, however I didn’t take part in that process so maybe someone else can give feedback.

    Moodle version 1.6 has a new database function that I’m looking forwards to working with too.

    Could you maybe expand on what kind of use / function you need? General discussions, instructive content, collaboration for instance? throw a couple of questions my way and I’ll try to help!

    Take a look at http://moodle.com/ for a list of services and reliable hosts.
    I can recommend http://www.howtomoodle.com if you are looking for training, and pteppic.net for hosting – but there are plenty of other options.

    For some background on the moodle developers intentions and aspirations this is a great podcast interview: http://technosavvy.org/?p=329

  2. Yes, and I like it.
    We use Moodle for all of our e-learning content. It has a very helpful user community.
    However, the big lesson learned for me is that open source software is not free. There are costs you will encounter in time, support and frustration. Allow time to learn the product. They have made it as easy to use as possible for an open source application, but I had to visit the forums many times.

    My customers also like it.

    You can see my installation at http://www.riceconsulting.com/moodle/

    By the way, I am running on an older version (1.4 – I think).

    I also use Articulate to create my slide show presentations in Flash.

    I hope this helps!

  3. Thank you!
    Thanks for the information, unfortunatly we have hit a snag which means we won’t be using moodle. It was good to see it working live though. Regards
