About this book

Moodle is the de facto standard for open-source learning platforms. However, setting up and managing a learning management system can be a complex task as it covers a wide range of technical, organizational, and pedagogical topics. This ranges from basic user and course management and configuring plugins and design elements, through to reporting, system settings, performance optimization, and so on.

This book concentrates on basic tasks such as setting up and configuring Moodle and performing day-to-day administration activities. Later, you’ll progress to more advanced topics that show you how to customize and extend this course management system (CMS), manage authentication and enrolments, and how to work with roles and capabilities. Next, you'll learn how to configure Moodle plugins and integrations and ensure your LMS conforms to pedagogical and technical requirements in your organization such as GDPR. Finally, you'll get to grips with compiling custom reports, creating different types of learning analytics, and integrating the LMS via web services including the mobile Moodle app.

By the end of this book, you’ll be able to set up an efficient, fully-fledged, and secure Moodle system.
