What is Moodle?

Moodle is an open source learning management system (LMS) used all around the world. It is feature-rich and flexible, designed to provide robust and secure personalised learning scenarios for any learning institution or organisation. With Moodle, you can engage your learnings and empower your teachers with:

  • A wide array of built in activity modules including assignments, quizzes, forums, assessment tools, wikis, chats, and glossaries.
  • Add or build your own content using images, multimedia, and external content with resource modules.
  • Customise how things look and feel in a simple, user-friendly, low-tech environment.
