The movement to a real, 21st century LMS, vs 1990’s systems like Moodle is catching on. Of course, now that Moodle is owned by Blackboard there really aren’t many independent competitors out there–you either go with Blackboard, it’s newest acquisition “MoodleBoard”, with Canvas, or you build your own…not much else left.
