Richard & David,
Moodle is widely deployed in the corporate world today, at least in the US. There is little hesitancy on the part of even large corporations to use Moodle for business training. Companies like Bank of America, Subaru, Fox Networks, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, AirTran Airways, Harrah's Casino, BUNN and many more think Moodle is just fine. Often some customization is required for business processes like those Richard mentions, which are not required on the academic side. That's one of the great things about Moodle and open source, you can make it do whatever you require.
At the San Francisco MoodleMoot
coming up in June participants will learn first hand how some corporations are using and have modified Moodle to meet their needs. There are sessions just for corporate. There were corporate sessions at a MoodleMoot 2 years ago in Savannah GA that was widely attended. Additionally, the HackFest Developers Conference on the day before the SF Moot (June 9th) will feature Martin and others discussing code and sharing custom developments. Moodle partners
will likely showcase hacks done for corporate users.
Richard, Moodle has added outcomes and competencies in the past few releases. However, to get where you want to be say with learning tracks based on such information will require custom development. BTW
, you might have missed Tony's post below pointing to the Business Uses
course here at Moodle.org. This area allows business trainers to discuss their needs.
