If you have an authoring tool and looking for a way to deliver and track your eLearning course, don’t miss out on Moodle LMS. In today’s article, let’s check the compatibility of Moodle and ActivePresenter – a powerful authoring tool.
Firstly, let’s explore the initial one.
What is Moodle LMS?
Moodle is known as a customizable open-source LMS (Learning Management System) that can be tailored to fit any course or teaching style. It is a ready-to-use LMS solution that contains the most popular Moodle features. Since the first version was released in 2002, it has received the attention of a large number of users. Until now, Moodle LMS’s latest version offers a wide range of helpful features allowing you to upload eLearning courses or even create your own ones on its system. Then, you can track, analyze and report on learners’ progress. This LMS enhances learners’ experiences by adding many activities or resources, for example, SCORM package, H5P, Quiz, IMS content package, Feedback, Glossary, and so on. Especially, Moodle supports over 100 languages now, so you can utilize it in your preferred language, or multiple languages at the same time.
That’s basic information about Moodle LMS. In the next parts, let’s see what ActivePresenter is as well as the compatibility between it and Moodle LMS.
