Moodle is a learning management system (LMS in short) which helps teachers and educators create an online platform for more adaptive and customized learning. Developed in 2002, it is free and open source software for use and is being used by many small and large institutions to create and deliver courses online to their students.

Moodle has many built-in features ranging from the basics such as file upload, assignments, quizzes, notifications and advanced features such as forums, quiz, wikis etc that can be used by learners. It also has many easy-to-install plugins such as attendance, reminders, analytics etc. to supplement these features.
