This is our school’s first LMS, so aside from navigating the sections of Turnitin, most students and teachers had not used an LMS previously. Students took to it right away with very little explanation (though the documentation is great, too). To a person, the professors at our school have been impressed with how easy it has been to set things up and add information and resources, and still have a clean look. From a UI perspective, every instructor with experience in another LMS has preferred this one, as have several students, and both my daughters, who attend much larger schools using more significantly expensive LMSs.
Gamification, group interaction options of all sorts, and continual updates and added features with easy integration make this a great deal and keep the focus on teaching and learning rather than IT. Instructors don’t have to master design to get a great looking classroom, and students don’t have to follow multiple portals to get all their information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
