Cloud Poodll is a set of Moodle plugins and an API. The main difference between Classic and Cloud Poodll is that we host the recorders, the recorded files and most of the code on our server. You just see them on your site. So its 

  • much easier for you to set up.
  • really lightweight and your site backup files stay small.
  • possible to use on any site. Not just Moodle (but we still love Moodle)

So its less of this, 

and more of this ...

In addition because we spend more time with the recordings we can do cool things like transcribe them and make subtitles.
