How can I use Moodle on mobile devices?

There are currently 3 main ways to use Moodle on mobile devices:

  • Users can open Moodle sites in their mobile web browsers.
  • Users can download native apps for their mobile devices.
  • Admins can configure their Moodle site to be Mobile-accessible through server extensions.

Mobile Apps

  • MoodleTouch (aka mTouch) for iOS, created by Ali OzGur.
  • mPage for iOS and Android (work in progress), created by Mass Media HK.
  • Mbot for Android, created by Code Guild.
  • The official Mobile app for iPhone, created by Moodle HQ.
  • Droodle - an Android client for the Moodle 2.1 platform

Server-side

  • MoMo (Moodle for Mobiles) - Requires a server extension and a client app; supports most mobile OSes including Symbian.
  • MLE-Moodle - Allows course designers to make a separate set of Moodle pages for mobile users.
  • Moodbile - Reference implementation of Moodle Web Services. Under development.
  • iPhone4Moodle - Under development.

Where can I download the official Mobile app for iPhone (My Moodle)?

The Mobile app, My Moodle, can be downloaded for free from the Apple Online Store http://itunes.apple.com/ie/app/my-moodle/id461289000.

How do I get the official Mobile app to work for my Moodle site?

Firstly, your Moodle site must be using Moodle 2.1 or later.

Secondly mobile web services must be enabled. See Enable mobile web services for details.

Where can I select a theme for mobile devices?

In Site administration > Appearance > Themes > Theme selector.

New in Moodle 2.2 onwards is the MyMobile theme especially designed for mobile devices.
