My name is Zaleha and I am the Head of Information and Learning Center. I would like to propose and develop a learning management system for my organizational usage. Is it possible for a non-techie like me to start a LMS using moddle? A Learning Management System is one of my deliverables for this year's KPI. Please assists. Thank you in advance for your kind attention.
Welcome to Moodle, and yes you can
There are a few systems out there (I looked at both open source and proprietary before jumping on the Moodle band wagon) and you have come to the right place . . . may be a little biased there
As a somewhat non-techie myself, from experience you can have Moodle up and running within haf an hour easily.
Like most things, it cames down to exactly what you want/need to do.
There is a vast amount of information in these forums and you will find the community here very friendly and willing to help. I would suggest you have a look at the Moodle Features Demo Course to give you a quick overview of the core funtionality (note this may be a little out of date as a new version of Moodle is close to release). Then have a browse through the further information on moodle.org such as the documentation wiki and these forums where you will find information and advice on various contributed modules that extend the core functionality, server specs, building learning communities, hints and tips etc.
I think Moodle is a very good and capable LMS. USM is actually now using Moodle as our LMS. I have no direct experience installing Moodle myself but I understand it's not that difficult. Should you need any assistance, perhaps I can get you in touch with my friend. Meanwhile, may I invite you to visit my website (http://www.elearning-onestop.com/) and view my online course running on Moodle (http://www.elearning-onestop.com/elearning%20_showcase.html)
