Each year CLAMP runs a survey to determine where its member schools are with regards to Moodle: what versions people are running, what they are going to, when they are making the move. This survey helps the Steering Committee and the Development Committee decide what versions CLAMP should support. The 2012-13 version of the survey saw 57% (24 colleges) of CLAMP schools respond.
In Spring 2012 CLAMP conducted a survey of member institutions to determine their plans for deploying Moodle 2.x. Twenty-one colleges responded to the survey.
At the time of the survey, 17 schools were running Moodle 1.9, of these 12 were running the Moodle Liberal Arts Edition. Two schools were running Moodle 2.x. Read more
After extensive review, CLAMP is pleased to recommend the use of Moodle 2.x for the 2012-13 academic year.
In our initial report on Moodle 2.0 [PDF], CLAMP’s member schools found a number of major issues with the 2.x iteration of the open source learning management system. While some reservations remain, we find that most of these issues have been addressed in in the current Moodle 2.x releases.

After careful assessment, CLAMP has concluded that Moodle 2.0.1 is not production ready. This assessment is based on extensive testing conducted at Moodle Hack/Doc Fest VII at Furman University in January 2011 as well as a re-evaluation of Moodle 2.0.x progress in April 2011. CLAMP recommends using Moodle 1.9.x during the 2011-2012 academic year.

CLAMP will be supporting Moodle 2.0 at the upcoming Moodle Hack/Doc Fest at Hampshire College in June 2011. We plan to:
- identify and begin writing essential Moodle 2.0 documentation at Hack/Doc
- create a timeline for converting any remaining plugins or blocks
- update this report on the status of blockers and potential blockers
- establish a group of CLAMP schools interested in piloting Moodle 2.0 in 2011-12
After careful assessment, CLAMP has concluded that Moodle 2.0.1 is not production ready. This assessment was conducted at Moodle Hack/Doc Fest VII at Furman University in January 2011.
