Moodle and BlackBoard are Great, But…
If your fire department is looking for an online learning / learning management system (LMS), BlackBoard and Moodle are two great examples of very customizable, feature-rich solutions for online learning. They are used by colleges and universities all over the United States.
The great thing about these products is they are super flexible and have a ton of features and ways to customize online learning. We like Moodle and BlackBoard, they are very good at what they are designed to do.
