Top 20 LMS Solutions - Capterra Study

Software review website Capterra have published a study of the top 20 most widely used LMS software Solutions worldwide.

Their study looked at learning management systems used across the education and business sectors, assessing their presence by total customers, active users and web visibility.

Here are Capterra's overall top 20 in order:

1. Moodle
2. Edmodo
3. Blackboard
4. SumTotal Systems
5. Skillsoft
6. Cornerstone
7. Desire2Learn
8. Schoology
9. NetDimensions
10. Collaborize Classroom
11. Interactyx
12. Docebo
13. Instructure
14. Meridian Knowledge Solutions
15. Latitude Learning
16. Sakai
17. Eduneering
18. Mzinga
19. Epsilen
20. Inquisiq r3

The results were also broken down by total customers, active users and social media followers:

Total Customers
Edmodo - 100k
Moodle - 68k
Collaborize Classroom - 36k
Schoology - 20k
Docebo 5k

Total Users
Moodle - 60m
SumTotal Systems - 32m
Blackboard - 20m
Edmodo - 10m
Interactyx - 10m

Edmodo - 19.8k
Blackboard - 13k
Interactyx - 10.1k
Moodle - 9.7k
Eduneering - 7.2k

While Edmodo leads discussion on Twitter and Facebook, it is not as visible on LinkedIn, where Blackboard has most followers at 6.8k.

Presumably, this reflects Edmodo's use in Education, whereas LinkedIn is primarily for business networking and discussion.
