They are in the middle on a two-year programme to build a VLE based on Moodle. In June 2007, the OU's Moodle database contains 350,000 users and 2,500 courses.
"Now, The Open University’s Learning and Teaching Office has started a new programme worth nearly £5 million to build a comprehensive online student learning environment for the 21st century.
The development, which will first appear in May of 2006, and be fully operational for February 2007 courses, will see the largest use of Moodle in the world. Moodle is a free, Open Source software package course management system used by educators to create effective online learning communities.
Currently Open University students use a variety of software in a network to access their course work, interact with tutors and other students, use the library, submit assignments and handle administrative paperwork. The new development incorporating Moodle will ensure the network is much more user-friendly and uniform." Source: OU press release (.doc format).

United States

  • Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) uses moodle for both curriculum and Corporate and Continuing Education. For curriculum it runs in parallel to Blackboard as faculty migrate to moodle over time. There are currently no plans to go moodle only, although many administrators favor this option. The server has 30,000 or so users on it, but the actual number of active users varies widely. It is used for both hybrid and full-online classes. Corporate and Continuing Education runs its own branded instance and uses only moodle for distance education. We have about 80,000 students total, covering the range from GED, adult-ed, curriculum, and other areas serviced by 7 campuses in and around Charlotte, North Carolina.


  • San Francisco State University (SFSU) uses moodle for more than three years now. We use moodle for our main campus and the College of Extended Learning (CEL). For curriculum, moodle used to run in parallel with Blackboard as faculty migrate to moodle over time (SFSU officially phasing out Blackboard, as of 6/30/2007). The servers have total of 89K users (as of 09/05/2007), among these 89K users, 28K are considered as currently active. As for courses, we have total of 57K courses sitting on our database, and among them, around 53K are considered as active. We also have integrated Moodle with our SIMS/R system (see http://www.sfsu.edu/sims/overview.htm). The student population in SFSU covers the range from undergraduate, graduate, and first professional students.
