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.

Once complete, we envisage that MoodleNet will consist of some or all of the following:

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

There are some further details in this draft white paper from early 2018.

MoodleNet will be built according to the following principles:


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

  • Blog - official project updates by the team
  • Community calls - monthly meetings to interact synchronously with the community
  • 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)
