Is Moodle any less likely to be used than any other VLE?
We are looking to implement a VLE in the near future and have been studying Sharepoint, SWGfL's Merlin, Fronter, Frog etc.
My boss is very keen on Moodle, but EVERYONE we have spoken to seems to reckon that the teachers will find Moodle very much more difficult to use and so won't engage with it.
Given that getting users to put stuff on the VLE is the difficult bit - do you think that Moodle is any more difficult to get to grips with than other VLEs? He certainly doesn't think so.
The other argument is that when the Moodle specialist leaves, the school is in trouble - but again, is this any more true of Moodle than any other VLE?
The boss really loves Moodle which was used in his previous school and as far as he is concerned it is the ideal low-cost solution to our requirements.
Could I have your opinions and reasoning behind them please :)
