Moodle (For E-learning)

Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) is an open-source learning management system. The software supports various types of educational activities such as online courses, instructor-led training, and self-paced content. Moodle lets educators create a personalized and dynamic learning environment for their students through its many modules and blocks with different activities. The platform offers functions including forums, quizzes, wikis, gradebooks, surveys, choice activities (polls), assignments with advanced grading options like rubrics or marking guides - all designed to engage learners in meaningful interactions both inside and outside the classroom. With compatibility across different devices and languages plus a large community of developers continuously adding new features, Moodle remains one of the most widely used platforms for e-learning globally.
