Abstract

Over the past few years we have seen the emergence of numerous free education sites. Initiatives such as Khan Academy, Coursera, MIT OpenCourseWare, and Wiki Educator all demonstrate that the face of technology enhanced learning is changing. The Libre knowledge movement (free knowledge) and OER (Open Educational Resources) are examples of the paradigm shift in perceptions and practices around knowledge and education. What has been missing from the landscape is a similar service that is totally free, learner focussed, and based on Moodle – the best Learning Management System in the world today. FreeMoodle.org was started in mid-2011 by an official Moodle Partner, and intends to address this by providing completely free Moodle hosting for individuals and organisations, provided that the courses are open and free to others. FreeMoodle.org is unique in being Moodle based (bringing with it the pedagogically sound principles) and supported and managed by an official Moodle Partner (HRDNZ). FreeMoodle.org fundamentally provides a single Moodle-based learning destination for learners – whoever and wherever they are.
