Multiple languages on your eLearning site

Providing a learning experience in a learner’s language provides them with quality training.

Though Moodle supports more than one language in its user interface and allows learners to select the language they want to navigate in, you will still need to create learning materials (e.g. PDFs, videos, and SCORMs) per language and thus create a different course for each language.

Help increase learner engagement and participation by contacting us for our content creation expertise.
