This is a request to larger schools/universities or organisations that use Moodle to manage courses with large numbers of students.
I'm currently trying to "sell" the use of Moodle as a CMS/LMS to my company. Their reluntance was based around the "free-ness" of Moodle (what's the motivation/agenda for producing free software) but I've now overcome that.
Now, though, its a rather different issue. Though I've demonstrated that Moodle will do all my organisation needs at present, its still being compared to the expensive, though somewhat more flashy, commercial products. The fact is, these commercial products are accompanied by very good salespeople, adept at demoing the products and making them sound compelling. And I'm not a salesman!
So, I guess what I'm looking for is help, from those people who administer large numbers of students in multiple courses. Can you let me have some case study material that I can use to position Moodle up there with the commercial products (stuff like ease of use, administration time reduced, money saved, numbers of students etc, stuff that'll help bring Moodle to life for my management team). Any help you can give will be very much appreciated.
