Note: The new MoodleNet is coming soon, and our current course sharing site, moodle.net is to be closed and its content archived. For details, see Sunsetting moodle.net. From September 2019, the Community finder block will no longer work, so it is recommended to hide it.


The community finder block enables users to access moodle.net, and search for courses to download or enrol in.
