The Spring 2016 LMS Market Report from our partners at e-Literate focused mostly on the United States and Canada. We, at LISTedTECH, now have data from more than 1,600 higher education institutions throughout Europe and are happy to share e-Literate’s first market analysis for this region. While this report and future analysis will be part of the LMS subscription service, we are sharing the initial version freely with a CC-BY license.
Below you can see the European historical market share since 2000. This view shows that despite Moodle’s overall lead in percentage of institutions adopting, there appears to be a plateau with no apparent market growth over the past few years. In addition, the second largest LMS solution, Blackboard Learn, is showing a clear decline in market share as is WebCT, which Blackboard purchased in 2004. The most obvious system gaining market share, just as in the US/Canadian market, is Canvas by Instructure.
There’s a lot more data and analysis available. You can download the FREE report here.
