LMS industry research report: Moodle is the most widely used LMS

In a recent research report on the LMS industry by Capterra’s, the users were surveyed to get an integrated picture of just how people are finding, buying, and using learning management systems. The results provide valuable insights regardless of what side of the industry you fall on—buyer, user, learner, or vendor.


The fey findings of the survey report are:

  • 87% of respondents use a web-based LMS, while only 13% have an on-premise or installed system.
  • People spend 59% more than they expect to on their LMS (the average annual spend is $70,614).
  • Live/video conferencing tops the list of most desired features lacking in current LMSs.
  • LMSs have the greatest impact on overall cost of training, according to respondents.
  • 26% of people are dissatisfied or very dissatisfied with their current LMS.

Moodle was far-and-away the most used, with SumTotal/Skillsoft a close second, and Blackboard and Cornerstone vying for third.
