WebCT was down again yesterday at my university and all learning grinded to a halt. Meanwhile my Moodle courses were happily buzzing along. Does anyone have stats on down-times for the respective programmes?
No downtime here. I have been using Moodle in earnest for three years with about 100, 700, 700 students respectively and the only down time I have had was
1) When the sysa dmin shut down the database server for an upgrade
2) When the IMAP server was renewed resulting in the non-recognition of !"#$%&'(' type characters in some student's passwords.
3) Not quite "downtime" but the biggest cause of non-functioning is when I set test open dates years in the past, or forget to upload the tests to some courses at all.
I have not yet, touch wood, experienced a "down" caused or even abetted by Moodle.
