All your teaching and learning in one platform
Moodle LMS delivers a powerful set of learner-centric tools to build a collaborative learning environment that empowers both teaching and learning. Our open-source platform is backed by a large community of developers and educators constantly looking for ways to enhance the online learning experience.
What’s new in Moodle 3.10?
Moodle regularly upgrades with new and improved features, including improvements to the user interface, admin experience, user-requested features, any necessary security patches, and more.
Moodle 4.0 = UX
We are well on the road to Moodle 4.0, the User Experience (UX) centrepiece that will transform Moodle LMS. Scheduled for release in November 2021, the journey to Moodle 4.0 has depended on engagement with the Moodle community – students, teachers, administrators, developers, partners and the Moodle Users Association.
Key features of Moodle LMS
Our LMS is true, full-featured open source – meaning you own your site, and know exactly where your data is. Take full control over the privacy and security of your data with Moodle, whether you host it on your own servers, use our cloud solution or go with one of our trusted certified Moodle Partners.
Give it your own look & feel
Tailor your site to your needs with Moodle. Customise the appearance and branding with Moodle themes and choose from a large number of settings and built-in tools to design the perfect LMS for your needs – whether your courses are instructor-led, self-paced, blended or entirely online.
Customise the functionality
Extend the functionality of your Moodle site to meet your needs using a huge ecosystem of plugin add-ons and Certified Integrations with third party software. From video conferencing tools, to attendance trackers, to payment gateways …you name it!
We strive to make Moodle inclusive and accessible for ALL. As part of this we perform accessibility audits and develop in line with common accessibility standards (WCAG 2.1). Our integrated text accessibility checking tools help you build courses and content with full support for all learners.
Choose your language
With the help of our community Moodle is being translated into over 100 languages so you can use Moodle in your language, or even multiple languages at once!
Support for all types of online learning
From fully online learning to a blended approach, from self-paced courses to collaborative learning, from school pupils to corporate learning: online learning is different everywhere. And because Moodle is developed by our global community, coming from all sectors and all parts of the world, it supports all types of learning processes and views of online education.
Trust our security
We take security very seriously. As an open source project, we have a large group of people looking at our source code and collaborating on making it more secure through well-established processes. Fixes are reported globally and applied to past releases to make sure they reach as many sites as possible.
Protect your privacy
Our world-leading privacy compliance features allow you to configure your Moodle site to meet your local privacy legislation requirements, including some of the best GDPR compliance on any education platform. Moodle has built-in tools to manage privacy and site policies, age-of-consent checks, data collection purpose and retention periods, as well as perform data exports and handle deletion requests.
Teach your way
Whether you want to support deep collaborative learning through group activities like wikis or forums; foster peer review in workshops; run your learners through a checklist for compliance; or provide a full-scale MOOC for thousands of learners- Moodle can support your online education style.
Measure and track progress
Monitor your learners’ performance and progression with learning plans based on custom competencies and scales. Allow your learners to view their own plans so they can see the associated competencies and track their own progress towards achieving them. Use learning analytics to receive insights to predict and support students at risk of failing.
Recognition of learning
Moodle can issue certificates and Open Badges to certify competencies, skills and knowledge – so that your learners can share their successes wherever they need to.
Support learning from any device
With our Moodle App, your learners can access all your content, submit activities and complete assignments from their mobile devices. Mobile notifications help to always keep them on the loop.
User-friendly offline learning
Our Moodle App allows full courses to be downloaded onto mobile devices, helping learners with limited data plans or bad connectivity. They can do everything offline, such as reading materials, answering quizzes or writing on forums. When the internet comes back, everything they’ve done is securely uploaded back to the site.
Integrate with all your systems
Streamline your processes by seamlessly connecting Moodle LMS with external platforms and services. Integrate Moodle with video conferencing for live meetings; Student Information Systems, plagiarism detection; portfolios, popular document suite, content repositories and thousands more.
Supporting open standards
As a member of several Edtech standards bodies, we support a number of common standards for getting data in and out of Moodle. For example we support SCORM and AICC for content packages; IMS-LTI for external apps; RSS; LDAP … the list of acronyms goes on!
