Who can edit MoodleDocs?

Anyone who is a registered user on Moodle.org can login to MoodleDocs and become a contributor. A reminder, this is not a school site - Moodle Docs is for documentation about Moodle ONLY and not a place for lecture notes, homework assignments etc.

How can I download a copy of MoodleDocs

Offline Moodle Docs Packages have been compiled by Antonio Vicent & Eloy Lafuente. You can find them at wimski.org. These packages allow you to browse Moodle documentation offline. Certain links, such as "edit", "history" or "recent changes" still lead to the online version of the documentation. Packages are built using HTTrack website copier plus custom shell scripts for packaging the contents.

It is also possible to export individual pages using Toolbox>Special pages>Page Tools>Special:Export.
