I've used the CADMOS editor successfully. I've created a learning design that I typically use in a first class in a Master on Communication & Education, where students are invited to discover three very different educational scenarios where ICT are used to support learning. The learning flow is organised according to the Jigsaw pattern.

I've been able to complete the design in a reasonable time. In fact it was quite easy to create the conceptual map of the design, and its properties, and I automatically got the learning flow. When looking at the learning flow, I saw that I wanted to change aspects of the conceptual map. So I went back to the conceptual map, made the changes, and these changes were then reflected in the learning flow. Finally, I added details to the learning flow (such as synchronisation lines, etc.). A nice thing is that you also obtain the "statistics" of the design, which are helpful to reflect about the design, etc.

In spite of some key aspects on modelling and notation, the two long-lasting missing issues with IMS-LD are: interoperability and interconnection. Cadmos promises both, from December on: it will be able to import-export Level B Units of Learning; they are working on interconnection from-to Moodle

Moodle and Lams can work with IMS-LD simple units right now. The problem is the level of complexity. I hope that Cadmos can work with Level B and Moodle, too

I cannot wait to test it from December on. Best
