Open source platform, Moodle, has been recognised as a Top 100 Learning Tool by the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies for another year. Moodle landed at #12 in the Learning Tool category and was voted the #1 leading Learning Management Tool for 2014. The rankings are based on a survey of over 1000 learning professionals across 61 countries to highlight trends in learning technologies as the industry continues to expand and evolve.
“I am proud that Moodle continues to be recognised in the field of internet-based learning technologies” commented Martin Dougiamas, Founder and CEO of Moodle Pty Ltd. “Our users benefit from Moodle being free and open source, allowing it to be easily adapted for any learning requirement – from major universities and corporations to small individual classes. We enjoy what we’re doing to help teachers and learners and this recognition just gives us more energy to push the envelope with Moodle.”
The Top 100 Tools for Learning list recognised major brands including Twitter, WordPress, and Wikipedia. Learning tools were defined as “any software or online tool or service that you use either for your own personal or professional learning, for teaching or training, or for creating e-learning”.
Social media, publishing and learning management systems continue to transform the way we learn across the world. There are an inconceivable number of learning tools available online, with new platforms arising each and every day for personal and professional learning.
Moodle continues to be recognised across the world as a leading learning management system and course management system with over 70 million users across over 200 countries.
