Mobile Application Pilot Program
About the Pilot Program
Moodle Mobile App Logo

The California 4-H Youth Development Program is piloting the use of the Moodle Mobile Application (Moodle App) as an opportunity for learners using the eXtension Learning Management System to complete online courses offered by the organization.  The primary goal in offering this tool is to increase access and accessibility to online courses offered by CA 4-H to those with limited and no bandwidth or connectivity in their area. 

About the App

The Moodle App is an open source tool designed for learning management platforms like eXtension to allow users to complete online courses on their mobile devices.  The tool is compatible with Android, Apple, and Windows devices. 

Benefits of the App
  • Easily access course content - browse the content of your courses, even when offline.
  • Complete activities anywhere, anytime - attempt quizzes, play interactive videos - both on and off-line.
  • Track your progress - Check completion progress in courses and browse your learning plans.
