I'm trying to build the case for switching from Blackboard to Moodle for our college www.PresidioWorldCollege.org
One of the strong arguments will be to show which well-known colleges are already using Moodle.
Can you help us with this list?
(can be anywhere in the world, as long as it's well-known in that country.)
- University of California, Irvine http://learn.uci.edu/cms/
- University of Georgia http://cantor.english.uga.edu/moodle/
- Texas A&M University https://maysportal.tamu.edu/
- MIT Teacher Education Program http://education.mit.edu/moodle/
- Ohio State University Math Department https://webwork.math.ohio-state.edu/moodle/
- Iowa State University http://tesl.engl.iastate.edu/courses/
- Orange Coast College (well-known in California, where I am) http://occmoodle.occ.cccd.edu/moodle/moodle/
Dear George Kao,
Thank you for the list of universities above.
Yamaguchi University, Japan but only by a couple of teachers at the moment: yufoe.com, Faculty of Economics, yuego.com (english teaching)
Dublin City University, Ireland in a big way
University of York (Virtual Learning Environment, Department of Mathematics), UK
Leeds University, UK
CICEI, a Research, development and innovation center of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain
Please see this thread
You might also just go through the list of users
searching for "ac" and "edu"
Looking at the list of universities in the Japanese list, I hesitate to say which are "well known universities" but Waseda University certainly is. Perhas mine (Yamaguchi) should be removed from the list of well knowns.
Sorry for the late response... too many projects! I fully support the choice of Moodle as a robust and scalable product. I am looking forward to getting under the hood.
Like Wayne at Auckland, I guess we are not a direct consortium member either but are very supportive of the Moodle choice. We have a trial installation up and so far it's going great!

First of all, I know this is a 2.5 year old reply to a 5 year old reply.
I don't want to make you feel bad Howard, but when you were piloting Moodle I was still a student. I remember using Moodle for the German modules I took in second year.
Never did use Moodle in Computing Science, but then again they've always kept things completely seperate to the rest of the uni: different workstation desktop environment (plain XP vs. Windows 2000-based CSCE), different way of submitting assignments (custom Java app called AMS vs. Moodle), different ways of accessing course materials (lecturers' own websites vs. Moodle).
I'd be interested to hear if you've had good uptake from the Department School of Computing Science.
Both of my children attend Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, and they use moodle extensively on that campus.
Idaho State University
Instructional Technology Resource Center
Do your professors utilize the grade book features as well, or do they maintain grades with a separate program?
Mount de Sales Academy
The instructors use the gradebook, however there are a few that use the gradebook and then import the information into an Excel spreadsheet. I hope this helps.
TATA Institute of Social Sciences, India for the M.A. in Education (Elementary) course.
I know this forum post is originally 2004 and that guy probably moved to Moodle a long time ago, but the following places in Scotland use it:
- Glasgow University (as Howard has already mentioned)
- Edinburgh Napier University (moving from WebCT this summer)
- Edinburgh University (only for distance learning courses)
- The City of Glasgow College (one of the biggest colleges in Scotland, my employer. Moved from two Moodle 1.9 sites and a Blackboard 8 in summer 2011).
- The University of the West of Scotland (UWS, formerly University of Paisley. Moving from Blackboard in summer 2012)
