We are currently using Moodle in rather primitive way, for sharing assigments, uploading homeworks, sharing pdf course materials and similar. Most examples of implementing elearning in eg. traditional mechanics courses I have heard about or saw involve extensive programming language skills and are done through large projects.
Effort needed to make such elearning systems is greatest obstacle in better use of elearning in my department.
How to implement elearning in higher engineering education? How much time did you spend to build your classes? Can platform change bring benefit or just the way you use it is most important?
Using some opensource or commercial platform or building your own system, which is best approach?
