Moodle Development (abbreviation for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) is a free and open-source e-learning software platform, also known as a Course Management System, Learning Management System, or Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Moodle Development has several features considered typical of an e-learning platform.
Moodle Development is very similar to a learning management system, but it has many more standard features. Moodle Development can be used in many types of environments such as in education, training and development, and business settings.
Developers can extend Moodle’s modular construction by creating plugins for specific new functionality.
Moodle’s infrastructure supports many types of plug-ins
- Activities (including word and math games)
- Resource types
- Question types (multiple choice, true and false, fill in the blank, etc)
- Data field types (for the database activity)
- Authentication methods (can require username and password accessibility)
- Enrolment methods
- Content filters
By default, Moodle Development includes the TCPDF library that allows the generation of PDF documents from pages.
