What’s the Best Option for you: Moodle Workplace or Moodle?

One of the most frequently asked questions our team receives is, what is the difference between Moodle and Moodle Workplace and how do I know which solution is right for my organisation?

Moodle Workplace:

Moodle Workplace is a version of Moodle fine-tuned for organisational learning.

Moodle, developer of the most-used learning platform software in the world, introduced Moodle Workplace, a learning solution to support effective organisational training that combines the proven power, scalability and flexibility of the Moodle LMS with completely new features specially designed to support professional learning and development. Moodle Workplace has been designed to support organisations and businesses, enabling them to:

• Build your employee training, compliance and induction programs easily
• Access your training system from anywhere on any device
• Customise your reports, your workflows and your interface


Moodle is a user-friendly LMS that enables universities, businesses, not-for-profit and public sector organisations to deliver their online courses with ease and to achieve their training objectives.

Moodle is a powerful, flexible and robust learning platform. Recently, Moodle has undergone a significant redesign and now boasts an engaging user experience complete with a new powerful Mobile app for iPhone and Android.

So, What’s the difference?

Moodle Workplace is the LMS that was developed by Moodle to respond to the specific needs of the corporate sector. It has a number of extra functionalities focussed on creating and delivering training and onboarding processes.  Moodle Workplace is not open source and is under a dual licencing: it is built on our open-source LMS but can be accessed via Premium Partners, Enovation. This is therefore not possible to download Moodle Workplace without the support.
