Moodle is an online learning platform which creates an integrated system to construct personalised learning environments. Moodle has over 63 Million users and 1.2 Million teachers between the 70,000 registered websites.

It is widely used in schools for setting and completing homework tasks online, allowing teachers to set independent tasks to certain students helping them with their specific areas in which they can improve.

The Moodle administrator can also produce and send out surveys to users on their platform, and then the results can be compiled into a database all using Moodle.
