Use Moodle™ to organize your courses and Microsoft Teams for collaboration, teamwork and availability

In learning institutions where Moodle™ and Teams are both important parts of the strategy for the virtual learning and working environment, The mConnect app by Skooler unites the two.

Skooler is based in Norway and stores customer data in your local Azure data center to comply with your organization’s privacy policy (i.e. GDPR).

One deeply integrated virtual learning and working environment:

  • Moodle™ (Learning): Work with courses in Moodle™, as before.
  • Microsoft Teams (Collaboration): Extend with collaboration functionality and get access to thousands of 3rd party Teams apps.
  • Microsoft 365 (Productivity): Get deep integration with Word, Power Point, Excel cloud and desktop applications.

The mConnect app creates a seamless experience for the end-user, working in Moodle™ and with all Teams feature in one single application.

The mConnect app allows Moodle™ administrators to automatically set up a Team for every Moodle™ course, making all functionality offered through Teams instantly available for every course in Moodle™.

The mConnect app is the official app from Microsoft to connect Moodle™ into Teams. The app is developed and supported by Skooler, a long-standing trusted Microsoft Gold Partner in Education.
