Introducing our community

Moodle is community

Welcome to the Moodle community and discover the value of an open, collaborative effort by one of the largest open-source teams in the world.

Moodle is open source

While you have chosen to sign up to our cloud-hosted Moodle service, in fact Moodle itself is software that anyone can download onto their own computer servers and use. How? Moodle is provided freely as Open Source software, under the GNU General Public License. Anyone can adapt, extend or modify Moodle for both commercial and non-commercial projects without any licensing fees and benefit from the cost-efficiencies, flexibility and other advantages of using Moodle.

We value everyone's contribution, big or small. Whether it's to join in discussions on ways to make Moodle even better, or to contribute one's feature knowledge to the Documentation wiki or simply to share some language translation skills, here are the places you can go and everyone's welcome.

Our community members work together and help each other in the forums on, our wiki-based Moodle Documentation, our Moodle Tracker for bugs and new features, our course-sharing site, and our Moodle Translation portal (which means you can use Moodle in over 100 languages).

Moodle is global

Did you know that Moodle is used in over 200 countries worldwide? There are more than 70,000 registered sites containing 80 million users and 9 million courses.
