There are lots of ways you can contribute to the Moodle project:

User support

Join in with the international discussions in Moodle in English or community discussions in many other languages.

Moodle Users Association

The Moodle Users Association (MUA) is a not-for-profit incorporated association that helps drive the Moodle project. The MUA provides a strong and united voice to users, giving direction and resources for new developments. It is a separate entity from Moodle Pty Ltd and other organisations involved in the Moodle open-source project. Members of the Association decide twice a year on new development projects for Moodle core; access an exclusive peer group of Moodle users; and gain some early, deeper insights into Moodle core developments. Different member levels (for individuals and institutions) are available. Shape the future of Moodle today, join MUA!
