My Learning Space is here to help your organisation through COVID-19

Moodle Academy

Our friends at Moodle HQ have recently launched the Moodle Academy! This is the learning hub for the global Moodle community. 

Engage in professional development, earn badges, progress a learning pathway and gain a certificate to help your career as an educator, administrator, designer or developer.

Learn in your language! As Moodle Academy grows, Moodle HQ plan to release more courses in languages other than English.

Moodle Academy offers a range of courses, most are free and self-paced, with the exception of Learn Moodle Basics which is a facilitated MOOC, and the Moodle Educator Certification (MEC) program which is offered commercially by Moodle Partners, such as My Learning Space.

We have always given our community ways to learn Moodle – not just educators, but also administrators and developers, whether through our Learn Moodle courses, our forums, documentation, videos or MoodleMoots – we have an incredibly active community and Moodle Academy will become the home for all these learning opportunities and more. Online learning has grown at exponential rates over the last decade, and the pandemic has only increased that. It is more important than ever that we support our community to develop the skills required to create and facilitate great online learning experiences.
