The rejuvenated Moodle apps (formerly Moodle Mobile) looks and functionality are now available to all desktops and tablets, from Windows and Mac to Ubuntu, Fedora and Debian Linux.

A new interface that brings students closer to the interactivity with redesigned, smarter menus; a more dashing and informed experience thanks to profile or “cover” images for courses; and increased compatibility with third-party services and plugins, including Vimeo; are some of the main attributes that will make of Moodle Desktop a more dependable solution at classrooms everywhere.

Other neat features include:

  • Organizational directory of users and courses (if enabled by admins)
  • Extended offline capabilities and access restriction thereof by admins (per item or whole courses)
  • Audio and video recording from the text editor, no plugin needed.
  • Deadline filtering display.
  • Desktop notifications.

Plugin compatibility requires the plugin to have “remote add-on” enabled.

Access to Moodle site from Moodle Desktop is available after enabling mobile access, same as with the Moodle app.
