Moodle is an open-source platform, that was released in 2002. It emerged from a community with people from all over the world that wanted to help building the platform. With Moodle the community wanted to create a more interactive and collaborative approach to distance learning. The focus was an online platform that educators could use to create personalized learning environments. The LMS is mainly used in educational sectors, since there is no ‘manager’ role or management of instructor-led-classes. Moodle can be an interesting platform if you want to offer mainly digital content (e.g. SCORM, videos, quizzes) to end users and follow up on training followed by your users.
