Moodle vs One45
 

Moodle = general use

One45 = Medical use

but is there anything in One45 which cannot be achieved by Moodle plugins?

I have to decide whether to shift to One45 from Moodle or Not, which personally i dont want to but require a certainty that anything possible on One45 is also achievable on Moodle.

Your insights will be really helpful.

Assuming that One45 is a specialist tool for medicine the I would be very surprised if there wasn't things that Moodle can't do that One45 does. On the other hand, I would expect that there is a lot of things Moodle does that One45 does not do.

The questions then become isit worth the effort of making a change?  Is this a change of serious benefits or change for changes sake? Real or just perceived benefit?  

Hard making these sorts of choices but for me unless there is a  tangible benefit  I wouldn't want to make that sort of change.

What did you find out in your own research when comparing the two products (there is no point in people in this forum repeating what you have already done). I assume you started with something like the Moodle features list at Features

Just wondering . . .

Nadirshah, this question is easy.  Just a quick look at the web page https://www.one45.com/ shows One45 does some things Moodle cannot do, even with plugins.  eg, schedule training programmes, run a lottery, manage duty hours.  They claim this helps with a fully featured clinical education programme where a lot of variable need to be managed.  How well they do this, and if it is 'easy' is of couorse another question.

The other stuff One45 does (track clinical education programmes, deliver content etc) Moodle should be able to do with the new competencies and learning plans.

I have found evidence they are involved with Educause, so they probably have some interest and thinking around quality educational practices: Educause people in my experience are not silly.  smile

You have a difficult decision to make I am sure.  This is the easy question answered.  The difficult question is a) are the new learning plan/competencies in Moodle easy to use? b) what do you REALLY need? c) cost benefit. d) there are more I am sure.
