Definition - What does Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment (Moodle) mean?
A modular object-oriented dynamic learning environment (Moodle) is an open-source software that provides the ability to create, deploy and manage e-learning websites and applications.
Modular object-oriented dynamic learning environments are a type of learning management system (LMS) or online learning system (OLS). They were initially developed by an educator and are now maintained by Moodle Community and Moodle HQ.
Moodle course management provides the functionality to create and manage educational courses online. The Moodle environment is entirely free to use, is available under General Public License (GPL) and is developed in PHP.
Moodle's features include the ability to develop courses, enroll students, manage assignments, and provide quizzes, grading, wiki and discussion forums for thousands of virtual students at a time. Besides education, Moodle is used for various other related environments such as business communication and employee or system training. Moodle can also be used as a generic knowledge management system.
