KB1045 - Popular Moodle Plugins and Extensions at VCC

One of the great things about Moodle is its expandability. Moodle's core Activities and features are often improved by third-party system extensions called plugins.

New plugins are tested carefully by Moodle HQ and eLSupport

While many plugins have been published for the Moodle platform, eLearning Support takes a conservative approach to their installation and support. Plugins take time to test and document, and unforeseen bugs or incompatibilities can impact other plugins or features, potentially affecting many VCC Moodle users.

Look what we already have
