What They're Saying

“World Education uses Moodle extensively across many projects, including for training out of school migrant youth in New England states and across Cambodia and for educating healthcare workers across Africa. The fact that Moodle is open source allows World Education and its partners to adapt it easily as needed to meet the needs of specific projects. Additionally, World Education relies on the Moodle mobile app so learners also can access curriculum content offline through the app.”
