Data synchronization with Moodle

Connect information across systems and ensure automatic updates for all systems with Moodle’s seamless data synchronization.

What is data synchronization?

Data synchronization ensures that all data related to users, course content and course access, course completion, and achievements is consistent across multiple platforms and devices.

Regardless of where or how a learner completes a module or test, their performance data is always up to date and readily accessible for trainers, educators, or the learners themselves. Similarly, when administrators or trainers update course content, quizzes, or other materials, these changes are immediately reflected across all platforms and devices.

Why is data synchronization important?

Data synchronization plays a significant role in maintaining accurate and up-to-date information. From reporting and decision-making to improved learning experiences in workplace training and educational settings, it offers multiple advantages:
