Tested Moodle plugins

AOSIS have been a Certified Moodle Partner since 2006 and provide Moodle Learning Management System (LMS) services allowing you to host your course content online. Moodle is an open-source learning platform, which helps you create effective online teaching and learning experiences in a collaborative and private environment.

This month we highlight two tested Moodle plugins which enhances your Moodle to provide more effective learning online.

Custom certificate

The custom certificate plugin facilitates automatic custom certificate generation based on completion criteria set up in Moodle. No interaction is needed from teacher or facilitator at all​. This is a massive benefit to any online course. Learn more.

Subcourse

The subcourse plugin allows clients to have Moodle courses set up as modules and reuse those modules in multiple courses. If a user has completed that module the completion will be tracked and kept on record. Learn more.
