Moodle stands for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment.
It is a secure, customizable and user-friendly open-source learning management system (LMS) that was founded in 2002 by Martin Dougiamas, and is designed to provide educators, administrators, and learners across the globe with an open, robust, secure, free and customizable platform that will enable them create and deliver personalized learning environments.
Moodle LMS offers educators across board functional, flexible, and interoperable digital learning solutions through its open-source technology.
Open-source technology gives educators full access to their Moodle site’s code and allows them to create a learning solution tailored to meeting their specific learning needs through tailored content, third-party tools, e-learning best practices and innovative plugins.
Moodle’s MOOCs (massive open online courses) are free or low-cost online courses that provide learners a flexible way to learn new skills, advance their careers and deliver quality educational experiences at a scale.
Its modular nature and inherent flexibility make it an ideal platform for both academic and enterprise-level applications of any size.
