We ran a quick, unscientific poll yesterday to try to figure what the consensus was on the Web 2.0-y-ness of Moodle. When asked “Is Moodle Web 2.0?” of those that responded:
Looks like it’s statistically even.
It’s not necessarily important though (as was stated in the comments); making Moodle have the traits of Web 2.0 (either site wide or in an individual classroom space) is possible in the hands of course designer with a little guidance, skill or experience. Or, the opposite is true of a course used as a file repository.
It’s an interesting conversation that will continue. Check out the poll and comments at http://lmspulse.com/2010/poll-is-moodle-web-2-0/.
Perhaps the last commenter is right:
A better poll would be “Do you think most facilitators use Moodle effectively or to its maximum potential?”
