Administrator Learning Pathway

Our Moodle Administrator learning pathway, planned for launch in 2022, will build upon the fundamentals covered in Moodle Admin Basics. The pathway will take you from your first steps managing a basic Moodle LMS or MoodleCloud site, to confident proficiency in all aspects of site administration. You will do this using a combination of mini learning modules and longer self-paced courses, along with live events such as webinars. Mix and match courses and events to suit your interests and expertise. 

Our global community is multilingual and we aim to be multilingual too.


At Beginner level your learning will focus on how to manage users and courses from within the admin interface including:

  • Customising your site’s look and feel.
  • Giving users access to your site and courses.
  • Creating and organising courses.
  • Making the most of your site’s features.

  • Server configuration for system administrators.

  • Customising user roles.
  • Site security and privacy.
