Learn how to be a better Moodle educator, administrator, designer or developer with the help of Moodle Academy and its free courses.

Develop and expand your Moodle skills — and your learning and development career — by signing up to the new Moodle Academy learning hub.

Whether you are an educator, administrator, designer or developer working with Moodle LMS, you’ll find webinars and complete courses to help you get more out of Moodle — and best of all they are all free.

The platform is designed to create a community of best practice, interaction and professional development for anyone using Moodle to deliver online learning. It is also the new home for several other Moodle educational resources, including Moodle forums, Moodle docs, MoodleNet and Learn Moodle, with its array of introductory video tutorials to a wide range of Moodle basics.


Moodle for beginners

A newly launched Introduction to Moodle course is the entry point for anybody who is completely new to the platform. It gives a short, high-level overview of Moodle that makes it the perfect starting point if you’re unfamiliar with Moodle. It is suitable for educators, administrators and developers. 


Moodle Academy Learning Pathways

The new Academy offers multiple learning pathways depending on how you use the platform: Moodle Educator, Moodle Administrator and Moodle Developer.


Moodle Educator

For educators, the Teach With Moodle pathway offers multiple tiers, so you can find the right route for your existing Moodle know-how: Learn Moodle Basics, Moodle Teaching Basics, Moodle Teaching Next Level and the Moodle Educator Certification program.


Moodle Administrator

Moodle administrators can take the beginner level Moodle Admin Basics or intermediate A Window Into Workplace to learn more about Moodle Workplace to increase their knowledge on managing their LMS.


Moodle Developer

For Moodle developers, Set up your Moodle Development Environment is the first course in a series of courses being developed as a step-by-step guide on how to start developing with Moodle. The series will eventually build into a full guide on how to create and extend the features of a simple Moodle plugin. If you want some additional learning, the Moodle Plugin Development Basics course gives an introduction to the concepts behind developing plugins for Moodle.

You can browse the current Moodle Academy courses in all of the learning pathways, with the offering expected to grow over the coming months.

And in true Moodle style, you will get badges and certificates to demonstrate your new knowledge and skills when you complete courses.

This year’s full platform refresh gives our users what they’ve been asking for and more: a significantly upgraded learning experience across web and app, bite-sized learning content that makes learning even more fun and engaging and a points system that rewards them for their investment in the platform. We’re really proud of this work, and we are excited to build on this year’s innovations going forward.

Sometimes you expect to be able to work with a platform straight out-of-the-box, but there are always quirks when it comes to adapting to your systems. Synergy Learning were instrumental for us in providing the development and consultancy we needed.

We were impressed with the flexibility and the level of consultancy that Synergy Learning was able to provide. They were able to understand our requirements and create a user friendly learning portal for staff, and one that we can amend and be comfortable using without having to go back for minor changes.

Save the Children's LMS, an example of an LMS for charities

Synergy Learning is always really responsive. The team is very approachable and communicative – they reach out to me a lot and stay in contact even when we don’t have ongoing work. Given a short deadline, they are always able to work to really tight timelines. They’re also very flexible when those timelines change.

Healthcare LMS for NHS UHB

We would like to thank Synergy Learning for turning this project around so quickly. UHB is one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in England and we are at the forefront in the fight against COVID-19, along with our colleagues across the rest of the UK. We are very proud to be launching this platform in the West Midlands and hope it helps alleviate some of the worries I know many colleagues have.
