What is the Moodle Educator Certification?

Moodle US is proud to offer the Moodle Educator Certification program (MEC), a certification program for educators, or learning and development professionals, who have experience in teaching or training with Moodle LMS or Moodle Workplace.

The MEC is not designed to teach you the fundamentals of using Moodle; rather, the MEC program certifies mastery in building effective teaching and learning activities with Moodle. Although it is not a training program, as candidates progress through the certification process they will reflect on their practice and this will strengthen their understanding and confidence when teaching with Moodle.

Who icon

Who should complete the MEC Program?

  • Experience (at least 1 year) in developing courses with a recent version of Moodle LMS (3.7 or later) or Moodle Workplace (3.7 or later).
  • Experience (at least 1 year) facilitating courses using Moodle with real learners.
  • Some understanding of educational theory and practice, ideally related to online and blended learning.
  • Competence at adding activities and resources to Moodle courses, delivering grades using the assignment and quiz modules, and communicating with students via forums, messages, and announcements.

If you are not comfortable with these basics, it’s probably best to start with the free Moodle Teaching Basics and the Moodle Teaching Next Level or Moodle US’s own training offerings.

  • Through each module, you will actively learn through a series of tutorials and examples guided by a certified Moodle US Facilitator. Obtain feedback from your facilitator to assist you in completing your learning activities including a lesson, quiz and written assignment to reflect on your understanding.
  • Earn a badge each time you complete a module. Final certification will be awarded once all 6 modules have been completed. You will be awarded a certificate from Moodle upon successful completion of the program.
