About the Moodle Training Course

Moodle (https://moodle.org), which is free and open source software, is a learning platform designed to provide Educators, Administrators, Learners, Course Developers, Trainers with a single robust, secure, and integrated system to create personalised learning environments.

Moodle is a leading virtual learning environment for your online course. Since it is open source software, it is free.

This course will take you step-by-step through the different aspects of Moodle to assist you in creating online courses.

Moodle is complex, but learning the fundamental building blocks will stand you in good stead to build powerful online courses.
