The Digital Public Good Alliance (DPGA) and its registry aim to promote digital public goods to create a more equitable world. Being recognised as a DPG increases the visibility and support for open projects that have the potential to tackle global challenges, as outlined in UNESCO’s Sustainable Development Goals.
“We have always supported the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights that everyone has the right to education, and the UN Sustainable Development Goal to ensure inclusive and equitable education, and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. That is why Moodle LMS is, and will always remain, open source. We value being part of the DPG Registry as we believe freedom in education technology is fundamental to allowing education to flourish and grow in a more equitable and accessible way,” says Moodle CEO and Founder, Martin Dougiamas.
The Digital Public Goods Alliance is a multi-stakeholder initiative with a mission to accelerate the sustainable development goals in low and middle-income countries. The Secretariat of the Digital Public Goods Alliance is co-hosted by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) and UNICEF and governed by an Interim Strategy Group consisting of iSPIRT; The Government of Norway; The Government of Sierra Leone; and UNICEF.
Alongside Moodle’s status as a B-Corp, this achievement recognises Moodle LMS open-source license v3, open standards, documentation, and commitment to accessibility, privacy and other applicable laws and best practices.
The DPGA recommends that digital public goods be prioritised when implementing digital solutions.
