As for me I use Moodle for all of my projects as Moodle has longer story than others. Here are some links to find all information: moodle.org mahara.org atutor.ca elgg.org - has user's portfolius sakaiprojst.org [quote]Hi t-july, Which of those platforms have you found useful?

Posted 10/20/2010 8:52am Ben NayakLearning Analyst at InfoPro Worldwide Hi Keith, Moodle and Blackboard have their own unique advantages. Depends on what resources (budgets) you may like to spend. Moodle is simple, equally robust, scalable and open source so free of cost. You only need to spend a little on customizing it. Even the World Bank uses Moodle. Blackboard is robust and has more featured options lke video conferencing facilities and hence advanced. You will need spend on the software licensing (hosted model) and hosting infrastructre (stand alone model). Let me know if you may need more assistance. email@example.com Sign in to vote!

Posted 2/7/2011 5:37am Kim Ross This last summer I looked at 14 different LMS's. The clear winner was BrainHoney. Hightlights include: Teacher dashboard, easy alignment of anything (activities, assessments, etc..) to standards/objectives, analytics, most everything imports (Moodle, Bb, Scorm), ease of use and price. I recently have been training teachers in BH in the member school districts in the coop I work for. If you are interested, I can point you to some pretty outstanding discounts. Sign in to vote!
