Moodle is one of the most popular learning management systems among online educators and trainers. It is used across the world for various online teaching methods such as blended learning, distance learning, flipped learning, etc. While creating your online course platform on Moodle is quite easy, the lack of a live class functionality stops the user from having live classroom sessions in their online courses. Self-paced courses have their own sets of benefits, but real-time video sessions with the students lend a competitive edge to your online teaching initiatives.
