Strengths and weaknesses of moodle

As it is license free, it can be utilized for free and can be easily installed and upgraded. Also, under the GPL license, users are free to download, use, modify, and further distribute it. You can also charge a fee for distribution.


The weakness is that you will need to have a basic knowledge of servers to set up moodle. Also, if you are using a rental server, you may not be able to get a working environment.
In addition, from an operational standpoint, there will be many functions that will never be used because there are too many functions. As a result, the overall screen may become difficult to see and maintenance may be insufficient.


The difference between open source and enterprise developed systems

moodle is written in PHP, and under the GPL license, users are free to download, use, modify, and further distribute it. This means that companies can use moodle as a base, changing the user interface, removing features that are not used very often, or developing and adding their own features that they think are needed to make the system different from the original open source system.
