Yes, Moodle and JoomlaLMS both are ready opensource LMS software platforms (Learning Management System). However, the most important factor in implementing such solution is how to make use of these platforms. In the early stages of LMS implementation, more managerial work is required than the technical. It does need a lot of preparation. It does need a good understanding of the client’s processes and expertise on the available opensource platforms. Signy team helps you document your requirements, helps you understand what the available system, say Moodle, is capable of and translates your requirements into smart configuration of your e-learning application.
Please visit Moodle development services page for more details about how Signy can help you if you have chosen or are willing to go ahead with Moodle as e-learning platform.
How Signy helps
Signy helps you with a three pronged approach: consult -> implement -> operate.
- Consult – to workout the best solutions, to tell you what not to do, to ensure the groundwork for a quick deployment
- Implement – to ensure success and be accountable
- Operate – to ensure continuity of service
In LMS implementation projects, whenever there is a feeling that some requirement is not getting fulfilled by the available platform, there is a typical tendency to immediately jump to conclusions and plan for the code customization. Such customization adds heavy costs. Sure such customization would add some value to your elearning site. But most of the times, the same needs can be fulfilled by smart configuration or even by an intelligent presentation strategy. This is the best value what Signy promises you. This is one of the most prominent outcomes of our consulting approach.
Moodle is a very feature rich platform. Yes, this is a plus point; but it can also make implementation a difficult activity – if not a confusing one. It needs a good understanding of current needs and also future needs which makes setting up policies and rules to cater to these needs. At times, it is required to remove some features if they don’t find any place in the elearning strategy and roadmap. Most of the times, we need to take a phased approach for implementing features.
With Moodle installation, you get following features –
- Site management
- User management, user policy management and authentication
- Role management and permissions
- Course management – course definition, course design, enrolment and more. This is the key part of your Learning Management System.
- Grades management and assessment engine
- Activity modules – study material i.e. resources, assignment, quiz or tests, forums, chat, lessons, workshop, question banks and more
- Appearance management – UI, themes, design elements, branding
- Other utilities like blog, calendar and more
- Reporting module
- Security management
- Server management and backup management
