Moodle is a considered vital e-learning tool at the Computer College, and for many courses at Qassim University. Previous to its implementation, there were many difficulties relating to course management, such as finding suitable times for all students to participate in tests, checking answers, giving feedback to the students as soon as possible, organizing registration for courses, providing course materials and delivering faculty announcements. In this paper, 71% of students studying Introduction to Information Systems at Qassim University were satisfied when using Moodle instead of traditional teaching methods. Additionally, 75% of the Computer College faculty preferred Moodle over traditional teaching methods. The evaluation results for using Moodle revealed its capacity to effectively support and develop an e-learning system to support Qassim University courses. This study offers an opportunity by yielding data on which to base informed decisions. The researchers selected the well-known Moodle educational project as a case study.
