On the other hand, the weakness is installing a moodle requires basic knowledge of the server. Also, if you use a rental server, you may not be able to secure the operating environment.
On the operation side, there are many functions that are too much to use. As a result, the entire screen may be difficult to read or maintenance may not be sufficient.
