5 Reasons not to look for Moodle alternatives

5 Reasons not to look for Moodle alternatives | Cibereducação | Scoop.it
Today I stumbled upon a blog post on E-Learning industry about “5 Reasons To Look For Moodle Alternatives” which are mentioned by the author – Ridvan Aliu. In the post, he mentioned his own experience with Moodle and provided 5 reasons to migrate to other commercial systems like EDUonGo.

Being a strong supporter of Moodle, the points mentioned by Ridvan are not agreeable to me, so I thought to clarify as per my level of understanding with Moodle – Why you shouldn’t look for Moodle alternatives and prefer Moodle over others

The Odd Couple: How Ed Tech Must Support Vastly Different Types of Professors -

The Odd Couple: How Ed Tech Must Support Vastly Different Types of Professors - | Cibereducação | Scoop.it
“Higher education needs to get better at academic needs assessment. That requires an entirely different and deeper set of questions than which features are important to put on a checklist. It requires an in-depth exploration of how teaching and learning happens in various corners of the campus community and what capabilities would be most helpful to support those efforts.”

To understand academic needs, it helps to gain a better understanding of the people making the decisions on whether and how to use an LMS. For a majority of institutions, this means professors. They are seen as the primary users, more so even than students. But one mistake to avoid is lumping all faculty members into an amorphous mass that can be measured with a simple metric of how fast they adopt the system. How many professors use these features? How many faculty members are satisfied with the system?

In tech circles there is a popular notion of a “technology-adoption curve,” first proposed by Everett Rogers and extended by Geoffrey Moore. The technology-adoption curve creates categories of adopters over time that include innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards. (I prefer to use “holdouts” instead of “laggards” to remove the implicit assumption that new technology should be adopted in all cases.)

Moore described the enormous difference between the innovators and early adopters on one side and the holdouts on the other. Early adopters tend to be risk takers with the technology in question, willing to experiment and willing to fill in the gaps of cool ideas that are not complete solutions. Early majority tend to be pragmatic, risk-averse, wanting complete and proven solutions. This is the “chasm” that traps many technologies and prevents them from being widely used.

The natural description that Mr. Moore used was the concept of “Crossing the Chasm,” assuming that, as a market matures, technology providers should pick which side of the chasm to serve, with the riches being available in the mainstream, majority case.
