Moodle is an open-source virtual learning environment / VLE (also known as a learning management system or LMS), which has been developed by educators, for educators. It is this alignment with education, rather than profitability, which sets Moodle apart from other VLEs
- The Moodle VLE is open source, which means no contracts or per user licensing costs to pay each year.
- You can integrate Moodle with your management system, saving valuable time on administration by automating registration.
- The money you've saved can be redeployed to provide better training for staff, increasing the use of, and therefore the value of, the VLE.
- Moodle allows you to support personalised learning, reaching outside the classroom and better involving staff, students and parents alike.
A VLE that fits your individual needs
Moodle enables teachers to take the best aspects of their classroom practice and transfer that into a home teaching and learning environment. As it's web based, staff and students alike have 24 hour access to resources and activities, allowing learning to reach beyond the classroom.
Moodle not only comes with an impressive array of features but is also highly configurable and extensible, allowing it to be customised to meet the individual needs of your school. As Moodle is open source, there are no license fees to pay, so your budget can stretch that bit further.
With a global community of over 70 million users, Moodle is the world's most widely used school learning management system, and is under constant development, with new modules being created and added daily.

We're able to offer the full range of support, from initial set-up through training to ongoing technical support.
We're also serious about contributing to the Moodle community - we've been heavily involved in integrating Moodle with MIS systems such as SIMS and CMIS, and we host regular Moodle conferences, inviting specialists working at the cutting edge of learning technology to share their ideas with teachers.
