Ma Zhiqiang and Wang Yanli  
With the rapid development of online learning in China,the open source platform Moodle is attracting much attention from higher education institutions.Despite the fact that research in this field is getting more and more in-depth,most studies focused on the application of Moodle with little attention paid to its effectiveness.Using the instruments of questionnaire and in-depth interview,this article attempts to report on the effects of using Moodle.The subjects were from China Northwest Normal University,including graduate students from the 2006 Class and 2007 Class as well as some undergraduates.The authors calculated and analyzed the contribution factors of barriers and the relevance between barriers and learning outcomes.Based on these findings and interview feedback,the authors conclud that various learning barriers occurred in Moodle-based online learning and that factors which affected the learning outcomes included learning activity design,log-in time,accessibility,technical support,online learning experience,dependence on traditional face-to-face classroom teaching and online learning objectives.
