Moodle Demo Sites

At Moodle, we aim to be the best tool for supporting education in any environment, with an emphasis on accessibility. As a free open source product, users can download direct from our site to experience the features of Moodle, or use one of the demo sites.

 

To experience the features, design and capability of Moodle in the latest version, you can enter one of our two sites. Choose to explore Moodle in action with Mount Orange School or play with Moodle’s standard features in sandbox. Both sites are reset to their  blank state every hour, on the hour, which allows anyone to alter, add, remove items in the platform and return to a clean slate every sixty minutes.

New Microsoft Office 365 open source integration with Moodle transforms education technology

The open source Office 365 and Microsoft Services plugins for Moodle include integration with OneDrive for Business, OneNote and Office 365 Outlook calendar. The integration allows students and instructors, as well as enterprise users, to sign on to Moodle with the same ID, making single sign-on easier and faster for education institutions and other Moodle users with Office 365 accounts. In addition, events created in Moodle will be stored in teachers' and students' personal Office 365 calendars, enabling them to easily track course events and due dates. Previously, instructors needed to update their Outlook calendars manually, or send event invitations separately to students.
