Moodle is a global project - and it's open source!
The QES website is based on Moodle, an online tool that is used by many thousands of schools, universities and colleges across the world.
Moodle was first developed back in 2002 by an Australian educator called Martin Dougiamas, who wanted to help schools & universities to develop online courses that were collaborative and interactive.
But rather than 'selling' it as a commecial product, Dougiamas relased Moodle as an open source project and encouraged people around the world to drive its development.
Today, there are over 67,000 registered Moodle sites in over 230 countries, with over 7 million courses on the go!
Moodle is also used by man of the UK's leading universities, including the London School of Economics, University College London (UCL), York University, St Andrews University and many more.
QES first started using Moodle as part of a project with schools across Cumbria and Lancashire.
But our recent upgrade has been managed by a company called Remote Learner, working with Overnet Data.
