What is Moodle?
Moodle is the world’s most recognized learning management system, used by organisations across all sectors to manage, deliver and measure online training.
Moodle enables you to build and upload e-learning content, administer that content, assess your users on it, measure their progress and reward their achievements. Easy-to-use, flexible and able to integrate with your existing systems, you can use Moodle to deliver compliance and competency training, continued professional development and onboarding tools.
Moodle in a Nutshell
Easy to use
One of Moodle’s key benefits and a major factor in its success is how easy it is to use from an administrative standpoint.
Moodle offers key functionality from drag and drop course builders to progress tracking, all designed to make delivering e-learning simple and quick.
Moodle can be used as a standalone platform but integrating it with other in-house platforms can really help bring out its true potential.
Moodle integrates with video conferencing tools like Zoom and Microsoft Teams, as well as data integrations with existing HR and CRM systems.
Moodle encourages collaborative learning, which can be a great way to boost engagement and increase successful outcomes for your learners.
Functionality such as groups and Wikis provide your users with collaborative areas to use, whether for sharing ideas or working together on projects.
Moodle has a wide range of content creation and management features, enabling you to populate online courses with a variety of customized learning content and activities.
Externally authored e-learning content can be uploaded directly as SCORM, IMS or AICC packages
Power-up your Entire Institution.
Moodle has a range of assessment options from a powerful inbuilt quiz engine to more formal assignment submissions.
You can load assessments developed with popular third-party authoring tools and send scores and completion information to a central course grade book.
Web conferencing adds an engaging, real-time dimension to your learning environment.
Whether it’s live video streaming, sharing of presentations or live desktop sharing, web conferencing enables you to conduct online sessions without the hassle and costs associated with face-to-face training.
Effective learner management and administration can be a significant time and resource investment. Cohorts and groups in Moodle enable you to balance quick and efficient administration of learners with the personalisation of an individual’s training requirements.
Competencies in Moodle enable you to set up any number of frameworks that reflect the skills, knowledge and proficiencies required across your organisation.
This enables you to create specific structures and relationships between your competencies and online learning.
Moodle comes with over 15 standard reporting templates that enable you to track compliance, activity and course completion and competency achievement within courses.
Teach online with the confidence that your systems and data are protected.
Developed through a ‘security by design’ approach and supported by our global security community, Moodle leads the pack when it comes to online safety, security and data privacy.
