  • Statistics about your site will be added to the statistics of the worldwide Moodle community http://moodle.org/stats/
  • Your site is also registered with the moodle.org open community hub (MOOCH), allowing users with the publish courses capability (by default only managers) the option of publishing courses to MOOCH

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

To register your site:
