Extend your Moodle site with the help of our plugin reviews

Did you know there are over 1400 Moodle plugins available on the moodle.org directory?

Moodle plugins can be used to enhance and extend your Moodle sites!

But with over 1400 plugins to choose from, where do you start?

We have rounded up a number and reviewed them to show you how they can enhance your Moodle sites.

Checklist activity plugin

Help your students stay on track by using the checklist activity plugin! Administrators can easily install it, allowing teachers to create custom to-do lists for their students.

This plugin also works hand in hand with the checklist block, which allows the teacher to see a student’s progress at a glance using progress bars in the checklist.

We explore them both in our review blog post.

Photo theme plugin

Produced by Moodle HQ’s Damyon Wiese, the photo theme plugin is Boost-based and gives administrators the opportunity to upload several of their own photo background images.

In our plugin review we explain why unique photos in different course areas can bring clarity and variety to a learning journey.
