Corporations, hospitals, non-profits, and many other organizations are making the switch to open-source Moodle, the world’s most widely used learning platform, for their professional development, onboarding, compliance, and other training needs. Driving this trend is the fact that open-source software is both free to use as well as highly customizable to meet specific user needs. No matter the type of organization, Moodle can streamline best of breed training content into a centralized online environment for a more flexible, efficient, and economical training solution.

In this session, you will learn why open-source Moodle sets the bar in the corporate, government, and non-profit sectors and how an organization can best take advantage of these cost effective solutions. We will highlight why open-source technologies such as Moodle are superior and discuss trends in training platform adoption. We will also discuss best practices for using Moodle as a training tool, such as how to create an efficient onboarding process, use analytics to track employee training and improve outcomes and skillsets, and how to incorporate eCommerce functionality such as a shopping cart to share/sell courses.
