I am taking a course online at a major univeristy who is using Canvas and Blackboard. There are several things they have right in the Canvas approach, and one is having more of the right stuff on one page.
For example: When you create a web page, the assets like images, etc that you might want to add to a page are in a column on the right. You can search the file structure there, find the asset and click on it and it's inserted into your flow. So much more convenient than the extra clicks needed going through the HTML editing bar.
Another example of everything on one page: When I upload an assignment, and the teacher comments on it, you get a notice and clicking on the link in the notice it takes you back to the assignment page. On the right is a column with the teachers comments and you can respond to the teacher there and carry on an asynchronous conversation all within the context of the assignment on that page. A private conversation without clicks, all on one page.As an overarching design idea, fewer clicks and within reason more relevant stuff on one page is something I think most folks would find refreshing.
If this is possible in Moodle, I would love to know how. Don't get me wrong, I love using Moodle for a variety of other reasons, but the world is full of good ideas and this one promotes an ease of use in both areas.
