Both platforms are available under open source licenses and designed for on-premises hosting or cloud hosting, giving customers control over security, compliance and cost factors and protecting their digital sovereignty. A keynote by Moodle founder and CEO Martin Dougiamas will go deeper into details of the collaboration on the second day of the conference.

In collaboration with Moodle, Nextcloud has extended the integration with Moodle, implementing a Moodle “mobile web service” authentication flow, integrated a Nextcloud Dashboard widget showing upcoming events and recently accessed courses from Moodle and developed a search integration that can search for courses and other content in Moodle.

Together, Moodle and Nextcloud offer educators a complete platform for remote learning and connecting to students. The new integration capabilities create a more integrated experience for users, bringing the two platforms closer together.
