Integrating Moodle and Joomla seamlessly, this extension delivers 100%. I have had no issues creating Moodle/Joomla sites that integrate so well a few clients couldn't believe the Course offerings weren't part of Joomla. The automation of syncing users, groups, login's and a shopping cart for course payment and enrollment (I use HikaShop) has saved me hours of work.
Joomdle has many plugins to integrate with other Joomla 3rd-party extensions as well.
To new users I would suggest looking for a good customizable Moodle Template, as the look and feel of Moodle is within Moodle, it is not going to be able to pick-up your template styles. But that is not the fault of Joomdle. Find a good template you can customize slightly to match your Joomla site and you are well on your way.
I couldn't live without this extension.

Over the years of using Joomla my expactations have steadily risen in line with the quality extensions that are released. This is true of both paid and free extensions. We are light years away from the early days of mambo when I had to find people on the net to create custom mambots for simple functionality. So today my expectations are fairly high.

Joomdle doesn't meet them. There are lots of plugins included with the extension to create menus and modules and i can rely on my nice commercial template to make those look good. Great. But what I really want is a way of making moodle content look nice.

Now this is clearly a tall order because, quite frankly, moodle is pig ugly at the best of times. So I've spent a couple of days playing with Joomdle but as I'm not interested in the plugins and the modules I just want to host moodle content and make it look good what I really need is a something more than just a wrapper - which is essentially what Joomdle offers for content display.

So if you can work out how to strip out the moodle blocks from the course view and adjust your template to suit the wrapper then all is good. You've got moodle content in a wrapper. So where does Joomdle come in? Well that's the wrapper. But couldn't you create your own wrapper? Well yes I suppose so... so isn't Joomdle a bit unnecessary? Well quite possibly yes....

Actually I found hosting the course files (adobe captivate) directly in Joomla and using a php script to store results on the server seems to give me the results I need. And I have more control over the look and feel of the material - without the hangups in connection to moodle etc.

If I hadn't read one of the designers saying "we don't really "do" templates..." I may have persevered. But really for me - and surely lots of other users - it's the looks we want Joomdle for not just the wrapper and the modules.

I think the core issue is that Moodle seems to be at a level that academics would accept - scruffy, slightly unreliable and disorganised. But I think a commercial project could probably integrate the two better than Joomdle does. In fact I think a good commercial project could probably swallow moodle whole.

I've used this extension on our production system for over two years now. The integration between Moodle and Joomla is very good. Additionally, the integration with other key components like JomSocial, AcyMailing, JomSocial ProfileTypes, HikaShop, etc. is also very well done.

The Joomdle community has grown quite a bit over the last few years with a very active user / developer forum. Chris and Antonio are very responsive. Support is as good as (if not better) than many commercial offerings.

I highly recommend.

I'm a lecturer in a university, have Joomla website and courses in Moodle - so Joomdle is a "must be" extension for me.

Pros:
* Great extension that does exactly what it says it does: integrates most popular CMS and most used LMS together.
* Decent documentation.
* Lot of possibilities to integrate Joomdle to other Joomla's extensions (I'm using Kunena integration myself).
* All the problems I had were related to wrong configuration, not the extension itself.
* It's FREE!

Cons:
* Configuration is pretty challenging if you're not an advanced user (I'm not). You have to configure A LOT both in Moodle and Joomdle in order to get Joomdle work. But I'm not agree with jeddell that "if you do not understand what XML-RPC is /.../ unfortunately Joomdle is not the component for you". I have no clue what XML-RPC is, but Joomdle is working on my site. :) All you need is to carefully read and follow Joomdle's documentation, time and patience.
* Support in Joomdle's forum is a bit slow, but you'll eventually get one. It's a free extensions and I can understand that Antonio and Chris can't sit there 24/7.
* If you're using an older version of Moodle (1.9 and prior) you can't use many Joomdle's possibilities and you may not be able to get rid of some errors (like that "the Joomla URL is not correct in the Joomla authentication plugin in Moodle" when using multilingual Joomla mentioned in umal21's review).

Great product and thank you, Antonio and Chris, keep up the good work!

If I hadn't of found Joomdle I would've spent countless sleepless nights writing what Joomdle does right out of the box. Joomdle made integrating Moodle into our corporate site a piece of cake. The clear and concise documentation and great forum community and support makes for an excellent extension/initiative.

This products works, and works well. Just installed the new version of Joomdle with Moodle2.3 and all went well. When first setting it up, READ THE DOCS. They are good. Joomla + Moodle + Joomdle = Good Educational Website, especially at the price. Support (not that you'll need it)is excellent.

Joomdle is the absolute wish list for a Joomla site integrated with Moodle. We have also integrated the Virtuemart shop to sell course participation with excellent results. Support is outstanding.
Highly recommend Joomdle.

Excellent idea that is finally being implemented. Granted they are still hard at work bringing full functionality into Joomla 1.7 they are well on their way. The support is super friendly and helpful (it is like paying for it). Not to mention this extension is free. A dream come true for me. Keep up the great work and look forward to the many more features in the near future.

Such a great work from Joomdle Developers.

However, Joomdle for Joomla! 1.7 has some bugs and limited functionality. I hope will have new version available soon.

Thanks,

Sam

Joomdle does a great job integrating Moodle with Joomla, and in my case JomSocial. Once installed and configured, logins/logouts are seamless, as are edits/deletions of user profiles. Users can now enjoy the flexibility and advanced functions of Joomla CMS and JomSocial networking while connecting with their Moodle courses. Shopping cart integration is available for Tienda and VM but I haven't tried this yet.

Installation is relatively straightforward. Just follow their detailed instructions. Errors or problems are almost always related to some config issue in your server or other apps but solutions are easily found on the Joomdle forum.

Developers Antonio and Chris are tremendously helpful, especially when you consider that must errors occur from problems in your Joomla or Moodle settings rather than their product.

An excellent product worth supporting in the long term. Highest regards and ratings!

This is just a fantastic extension for Moodle users.

Antonio, the developer has been of great support in installing and setting up the component on two live sites. For peace of mind, I hired him to do it for me and don't regret it.

Great component, great guy. Thanks!

In my opinion this is the most powerful free component offered on the Joomla CMS platform. I don't say that lightly. It essentially makes Moodle another feature of your Joomla run website or vice versa. So now you can have the most powerful open source CMS connected to the most powerful open source LMS!

Beyond this being a powerful tool, I can't say enough for the Joomdle team. Antonio was so much help and he goes above and beyond for anyone wanting him to modify their Joomdle to make it just right. Within the course of 24 hours he helped me connect my Virtuemart/Joomdle payment set-up with a brand new payment provider and added some redirects for me to make everything look real smooth!

I really can't say enough besides that I will definitely be working with the Joomdle team more in the future. I truly hope more people will spread the word about this powerful, well documented, and free component!

This is without a doubt the BEST non-commercial extension I have had the pleasure of coming across. In fact I would go as far as saying that this comes close to knocking a lot of commercial extensions off their perch. If the Developer charged for this, I'd be first in the queue, cash at the ready. If you want to integrate Moodle into your Joomla site,look nowhere else - this is the only extension you'll need. The extension is backed up by solid,easy to read documentation and a forum with a lightning quick response. I can only presume that people not giving this full marks didn't have the patience to sort out the minor installation quirk which is easily rectified by running an SQL command in your Moodle database - I have NO MySQL experience but by folloing Antonio's clear instructions (he even lays out the SQL command for you!) the installation was up in no time.Every credit and hats off to Antonio and his team for a world class Joomla extension!!!

When I decided to use Moodle for an E-Learning site I had taken on from a client who was let down by another developer, it had to work properly, and quickly.

Moodle was simple to install with clear, step by step instructions on the Wiki. Both the Joomla! and Moodle side of things were fairly simple although I stumbled across a few issues which were responded to via the forum quite quickly.

I had to get some custom development done for the payment gateway integration which was done extremely efficiently and works perfectly. Antonio also figured out a couple of configuration settings which weren't quite right while doing the work, saving me a lot of troubleshooting.

I've found this to be a really great system for integrating Moodle with Joomla and will definitely recommend it in the future.

Installing and configuring Joomdle is so easy and really works beautifully. I had recently installed it and configured to establish a bridge between my Joomla website and Moodle. I followed their documentation in Wiki and everything went perfect!

The wrapper also worked brilliantly, and so did Virtuemart integration, in case the courses are commercial.

A Big Thanks to the developers of Joomdle. This is the beauty of open-source and you have worked hard to reveal its true potential... Thanks!
