A short 90 seconds video overview of  Moodle Academy

Moodle is very focused on developing  Moodle Academy to support all members of it’s global community, providing courses in a wide range of languages.

We have always given our community ways to learn Moodle – not just educators, but also administrators and developers, whether through our Learn Moodle courses, our forums, documentation, videos or MoodleMoots – we have an incredibly active community and Moodle Academy will become the home for all these learning opportunities and more. Online learning has grown at exponential rates over the last decade, and the pandemic has only increased that. It is more important than ever that we support our community to develop the skills required to create and facilitate great online learning experiences.
