MoodleNet is 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 and there's an overview document here.

Eventually, MoodleNet will consist of eight components:

  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 (March 2018)

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