Registration
An administrator can register their site with the moodle.org open community hub (MOOCH), and other community hubs in Settings > Site Administration > Registration (also in Settings > Site administration > Server > Site registration).

Moodle.org registration

When you register your site with the moodle.org open community hub (MOOCH), you are added to a low-volume mailing list for important notifications such as security alerts and new releases of Moodle. Statistics about your site, such as the number of users and number of courses will be added to the statistics of the worldwide Moodle community http://moodle.org/stats/.

If you wish, you can choose for your site to be listed in http://moodle.org/sites/.

In addition, users with the capability moodle/course:publish (by default only managers) can publish courses on MOOCH.

To register your site:

  1. Click the 'Register with moodle.org now' button
  2. Review the registration information, amending as necessary
  3. Click the 'Update registration on moodle.org' button at the bottom of the page

After registering, MOOCH will appear in the list of hubs you have registered with on the registration page.

You may change the registration information at any time by updating your registration.

Updated site statistics are sent to moodle.org automatically every 7 days.

Note: After updating your registration, it can take up to 2 weeks before your site is listed in http://moodle.org/sites/.

Note: Only sites which are publicly available on the Internet are eligible to be registered.

Specific hub registration

You may register your site with a specific hub by selecting the hub from a list or by entering a private hub URL and password.

If you add the Community finder block to courses on your site, teachers, non-editing teachers and managers (and any other users with the capability moodle/community:add) will be able to access the hub and search for courses for download or to enrol in.

Unregistering from a hub

You may unregister from a hub at any time by clicking the unregister button. You will then be given the option to remove all courses currently being advertised on the hub and remove all courses that were uploaded to the hub.
