We’re approaching the end of the year and the annual LMS Market Analysis report, and the recent coverage of LMS vendor news around the Educause Conference has generated some useful conversation and feedback. Let’s do some updates.

Correction – UNED Not On Moodle

In the public blog post I initially described the Open LMS win at UNED, the national distance education university in Spain with roughly 200k students, as a Moodle to Moodle transition. Open LMS as you recall is the rebranded Moodlerooms that Blackboard sold to LTG in early 2020, augmented by subsequent purchases of eThink and eCreators. Their base LMS is Moodle, even though they are not a Certified Moodle Partners and cannot use the Moodle name.

What UNED is transitioning from, however, is not self-hosted Moodle despite that being used in one program. The university LMS is aLF, based on dotLRN (I apologize for the mistake).

ALF reboot: Warner Bros. TV explores bringing back the cat-eating Melmacian.

Not that ALF, aLF. The significance here is that this does indirectly represent a new Moodle adoption.
