About Moodle Academy
Moodle Academy, which launched in August 2021, is the learning hub for the global Moodle community. A community for professional development, interaction and best practice. Designed and developed by Moodle HQ, the site aims to facilitate learning and collaboration to inspire better teaching everywhere. Get a Moodle badge or certificate to help your career as an educator, administrator, developer or designer.
The events and courses on Moodle Academy will be developed and delivered by Moodle community members, including Moodle and its Moodle Partners. If you need Moodle support, hosting, custom development or any other services, then we encourage you to support Moodle by choosing a Moodle Certified Service Provider to help you. You can also support Moodle by making a donation or purchasing an item from the Moodle shop.
For more on the background of our new learning hub, see "Why Moodle Academy?", written by Moodle Founder and Lead Developer, Martin Dougiamas.
Moodle Academy is run by a team of experienced Moodlers, who have been using Moodle for many years, and are passionate educators. We are based in Europe and Australasia.
What is Moodle?
Moodle is the world’s most customisable and trusted online learning solution. The heart of the Moodle ecosystem is Moodle LMS, the open source learning management system with inherent security and privacy features used by hundreds of millions of learners worldwide. Designed in collaboration with Moodle’s loyal community, Moodle LMS allows educators in any sector to create safe, accessible, flexible and highly engaging online spaces for their learners.
The learning and development functionalities of Moodle LMS has given birth to a range of ancillary Moodle products and services including Moodle Workplace, the flexible platform transforming workplace learning; Moodle Apps, which improves the experience of Moodle on devices; MoodleCloud hosting solutions, and a network of 100 Certified Service Providers delivering expertise in hosting, customisation, support and training.
Our vision for a more equitable and accessible approach to education is supported by Moodle Academy, this learning hub for the global Moodle community and soon to be launched MoodleNet, a place to share and curate open educational resources.
Collectively, we strive toward our mission to empower educators to improve our world.
You can download Moodle LMS yourself, for free, or, if you want to get a Moodle site for trial or an off-the-shelf application, you can sign up to MoodleCloud. If you need help with customisation, hosting, support or training, get in touch with one of our Certified Service Providers in your region.
