Project MoodleNet is currently described by Martin Dougiamas, CEO of Moodle as, "a new open social media platform for educators, focussed on professional development and open content". MoodleNet will be an integral part of the Moodle ecosystem. We'll be building out this page as the project develops.

Currently, we envisage Project MoodleNet consisting of eight components which we have listed below in the order that we are considering tackling them:

  1. Authentication
  2. Social networking
  3. Profile
  4. Connection to open content
  5. Forum
  6. Global search
  7. Dashboard
  8. Crowdfunding

For more details, please see the draft white paper or this slide-based overview (Jan 2018)

Project MoodleNet will be built according to the following principles. The links below take you to a blog post unpacking each one:


There are many options for keeping up-to-date with Project MoodleNet:

  • Blog - official project updates by the team
  • Discussion forum - a place to discuss and debate the various aspects of the project
  • Telegram channel - smaller updates about the project (also provides notifications when blog posts are published)


To keep track of work on the project we are using Trello cards linked to JIRA issues:
