Hi Gerd,

We have been using moodle for 2-3 years and its been working well for 
us. In fact, our campus has just decided to adopt moodle as one of our 
supported platforms. I'm teaching an algebra based physics course using 
the msu phys231 sequence as my homework/lecture materials in lon-capa, 
and I'm using moodle for the labs in the same course. I have a link in 
lon-capa to moodle and vice versa. Moodle works well with other 
platforms because it facilitates class discussion. It does so better 
than any other system I know. Moodle is less sophisticated when it comes 
to the homework engine, so we use lon-capa or webwork (in math) for this 
purpose. This poses no problems.
