My experience has been good mainly because the tool is free, it also has a multi-language system so that wherever you are you can have access to the platform, it is functional, reliable and fast to implement.

Pros

What I like most in general about this tool is that it is very accessible and allows organizations to keep up to date on advances thanks to the fact that the tool is quite good for conducting courses in an understandable way, allowing flexible training

Cons

I have no dislikes with the tool, it is easy to implement in companies regardless of the career or professional areas in which it will be used, it is a great option regardless of whether the company is large or small

Moodle is the primary learning and teaching tool used very effective at my institution. It also assisted us in taking in more students on blended learning as our physical class room space not adequate.

Pros

Open source software
Mobile learning compatible for virtual teaching and learning that record lectures, present tutorials
Promote training and virtual learning outcomes by rule setups per assessment etc
Support social constructive pedagogy

Cons

The fact that it does not have a very strong plagiarism tool. the fact that it does not have a build in API platform to fully integrate with other operation systems to make it more easy to integrate like blackboard.

It is a good tool for e-learning but needs to be better, with more features and a better layout. Moreover, Moodle mobile application could be better and easier to use.

Pros

With Moodle, you can implement different content (tests, quizzes, videos, photos, texts, etc.) in one place. Moodle is simple and basic to use and supports average languages.

Cons

Its usability is not very good, with a layout without a standard accessible interface. Some platforms are much more intuitive and have a more organized structure.

Moodle allows our organization to manage workflow and content, as well as administrative documents and user management. Moodle is also our internal directory and all backend information on our Active Directory gets synched to Moodle daily so staff can find and connect with each other internally.

Pros

Moodle is free and open source so customizing it to whatever needs is always an option and it allows for great work to be done.

Cons

Moodle does have some complications and things that are confusing. However, Moodle has a great community platform and blogs to help with navigating around administrative tools and backend files.
