What is Moodle?
Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) is a free open-source learning management system or e-Learning platform, that serves educators and learners across the globe. It is the most widely used LMS in the world and currently has over 68 million users world-wide (and growing!).
Moodle was developed in 2002 by Martin Dougiamas to help educators create online courses with a focus on interaction and collaborative construction of content. Since then, the main development of Moodle is led by Martin and the core team at Moodle Headquarters, as well as hundreds of other developers around the world who have helped fuel the growth of Moodle through contributing and testing code, and being active participants in community forums.
What is the Moodle HQ Team?
The Moodle HQ team consists of a two teams of designers, developers, and staff located (mostly) in Moodle HQ in Perth, Australia. The Stable Team offers maintenance and support for the current Moodle version, whereas the Future Team charts a roadmap and develops future versions of Moodle against it. Both groups work within clear release schedules, visible development sprints, and a roadmap that bubbles up from the community forums. If you are interested in developing software plugins, participating in community support or learning more about the Moodle roadmap, we recommend you participate in the Moodle.org discussion forums.
