EDUCAUSE has posted a presentation by SUNY Delhi’s Clark Shah-Nelson on their transition from WebCT CE to Moodlerooms-hosted Moodle. It’s quite good. By all accounts (including the presentation), it has been a pretty smooth transition for Delhi. But the biggest deal is the cost comparison, which Clark lays out in his slides. The total cost is just way cheaper than the alternatives. Particularly for schools that are just looking for a decent all-around LMS and don’t have very specific functional or integration needs, the Moodlerooms offering is tough to beat.
Thanks for posting this, Michael! You might also be interested to check out the NERCOMP blog from the presentation, which also contains an audio capture and more links and stories.
