This presentation was given at the Association of Australasian Distance Education Schools, Adelaide, Australia in 2009.

Learn how to save your organisation time and money, meanwhile innovate to meet the complex needs of today's learners. This session will be of particular value to those considering the merits of adopting a learning management system.

A comparative analysis of commercial versus open-source learning management systems will be conducted. Our focus shifts to the freely available Moodle learning management system (LMS) as an educational software solution.

Through its social constructivist design, Moodle promotes flexible learning, quality teaching and 21st century education. The benefits of the Moodle LMS will be demonstrated by one of Australia's most qualified Moodle users. Features include blogs, forums, assignments, quizzes, wikis, gradebook and more.
