About

MoodleNews.com is a leading online destination – second only to Moodle.org – for news, information and resources related to the Learning Management System (LMS) called Moodle. MoodleNews.com is an authority site recognized for its depth, breadth and organization of all things Moodle, including:

  • Practice: This section speaks directly to Moodle users on how the LMS is used most effectively in practice – for Instructors, Students, Administrators and Moodlepreneurs™.
  • Technology: This section follows the continued development and growth of the LMS. Everything from the ‘core’ of the LMS from Moodle HQ, to plugins and themes from independent developers and beyond.
  • Governance: This section provides our readers with a deep understanding of the ongoing governance and structure of the open source movement that drives Moodle.
  • Community: This section tracks and reports on community events, job openings, service providers, other LMS platforms, and the market for online learning.

MoodleNews.com was founded in 2009 by Joseph Thibault, Director of Academics at StraighterLine.com. A dedicated Moodler himself, Joe started MoodleNews.com as a passion project to help organize the vast amount of information about the Moodle LMS platform. He continues to contribute to the site as a writer, editor and Moodle brain trust.

Stephen Ladek became a parter of MoodleNews in 2015. Stephen both writes and edits for the site, while also covering advertising and administration.
