  1. Moodle reminds me of LINUX, which is an open source OS. It may be free, but that doesn't mean that it's simple or easy to use. Most students in California grow up using Google Classroom, which is much different than Moodle. Switching learning platforms from K-12 to college will be a headache, especially for transfer students who may be used to Blackboard.
