Hello Moodle community,
Sorry to start my first discussion with this comparison but... there are lot of things and don't find easy to do with Moodle !
First I've to say I've tested eFront LMS in open-source for about 3-4 days, and I'm working on Moodle for 6 days.
- Progression : eFront did it naturally, for each page in a course, but I can change a "weight" to give more importance to a particular one. Moodle do it... but for each activity : a book is weighted the same as a simple webpage !!!
- Following a lesson : in eFront, I can navigate automaticaly between page. It adds all "Next" and "Prec" buttons at the end of each page. I just have to sort them when the course is ready (if never it's not created in right order). Moodle have the same possibility but only in book. If I want to use lesson, I've to manually create my "Next" and "previous" button... and I don't speak about pages : there are just placed on the courses but not linked or useable for a lessons or a book (I can't create a book with all pages already present in the course)
- Badges : ok, Moodle is able to manage them and not eFront
- Tests : eFront gives tips to help writing tests. With Moodle, I've to learn before, how to write a test : is this for teachers or developpers ?
Here is what I've done in 3 days with eFront... and try to do with Moodle...
