Moodle Educator Certification

The MEC is a certification program for educators, or learning and development professionals, who have experience in teaching or training with Moodle LMS or Moodle Workplace. The MEC emphasises the importance of developing pedagogic and professional competencies to enhance and innovate online education and training. Although it is not a training program, as participants progress through the certification process they will reflect on their practice and this will strengthen their understanding and confidence when teaching with Moodle. 

MEC is based on the widely used and accepted European Framework for the Digital Competence for Educators (DigCompEdu). It is a six-course certification program that allows experienced Moodle educators or learning and development professionals to demonstrate their expertise in teaching or creating learning development programs with Moodle LMS or Moodle Workplace and obtain official certification directly from Moodle.
