Great extension - once you get it set up it can integrate all kinds of information from Moodle into Joomla.

Ease of use

Not so easy to set up - as noted by others, somewhat complex and detailed to configure.

I used this to: Integration of Moodle into Joomla - including buy in Virtuemart and parent/child functionality.

Joomdle is awesome

Posted on 27 September 2014

Joomdle is the best for Moodle integration and the Joomdle support is awesome.

Be under no illusion that the installation of Moodle and Joomdle will take quite a while, and needs to be followed to the letter, but the result is worth it.

You will end up with the best open source teaching system on the best CMS. I know the developers are working on simplifying this, and there is room for improvement, but it is still an excellent bridge for your courses.

Integrating Moodle and Joomla seamlessly, this extension delivers 100%. I have had no issues creating Moodle/Joomla sites that integrate so well a few clients couldn't believe the Course offerings weren't part of Joomla. The automation of syncing users, groups, login's and a shopping cart for course payment and enrollment (I use HikaShop) has saved me hours of work.

Joomdle has many plugins to integrate with other Joomla 3rd-party extensions as well.

To new users I would suggest looking for a good customizable Moodle Template, as the look and feel of Moodle is within Moodle, it is not going to be able to pick-up your template styles. But that is not the fault of Joomdle. Find a good template you can customize slightly to match your Joomla site and you are well on your way.

I couldn't live without this extension.

works fine!

Joomdle I use on my site

works fine and does what it says

installation is somewhat complex, but very good tutorial

Antonio assistance in any way they can.

I give it 5 stars because I feel good extension for Joomla

this is the best extension that provides you courses and allows you sell and buy courses,,,plus its free and integrates smoothly with Jomsocial and community builder,,,they know what they are doing,,,excellent work guys,,thanks a lot for this and for making it for free :) ;) much love and respect with my wishes for you for more success

Over the years of using Joomla my expactations have steadily risen in line with the quality extensions that are released. This is true of both paid and free extensions. We are light years away from the early days of mambo when I had to find people on the net to create custom mambots for simple functionality. So today my expectations are fairly high.

Joomdle doesn't meet them. There are lots of plugins included with the extension to create menus and modules and i can rely on my nice commercial template to make those look good. Great. But what I really want is a way of making moodle content look nice.

Now this is clearly a tall order because, quite frankly, moodle is pig ugly at the best of times. So I've spent a couple of days playing with Joomdle but as I'm not interested in the plugins and the modules I just want to host moodle content and make it look good what I really need is a something more than just a wrapper - which is essentially what Joomdle offers for content display.

So if you can work out how to strip out the moodle blocks from the course view and adjust your template to suit the wrapper then all is good. You've got moodle content in a wrapper. So where does Joomdle come in? Well that's the wrapper. But couldn't you create your own wrapper? Well yes I suppose so... so isn't Joomdle a bit unnecessary? Well quite possibly yes....

Actually I found hosting the course files (adobe captivate) directly in Joomla and using a php script to store results on the server seems to give me the results I need. And I have more control over the look and feel of the material - without the hangups in connection to moodle etc.

If I hadn't read one of the designers saying "we don't really "do" templates..." I may have persevered. But really for me - and surely lots of other users - it's the looks we want Joomdle for not just the wrapper and the modules.

I think the core issue is that Moodle seems to be at a level that academics would accept - scruffy, slightly unreliable and disorganised. But I think a commercial project could probably integrate the two better than Joomdle does. In fact I think a good commercial project could probably swallow moodle whole.

Great Extension

Posted on 16 November 2012

I've used this extension on our production system for over two years now. The integration between Moodle and Joomla is very good. Additionally, the integration with other key components like JomSocial, AcyMailing, JomSocial ProfileTypes, HikaShop, etc. is also very well done.

The Joomdle community has grown quite a bit over the last few years with a very active user / developer forum. Chris and Antonio are very responsive. Support is as good as (if not better) than many commercial offerings.

I highly recommend.

I'm a lecturer in a university, have Joomla website and courses in Moodle - so Joomdle is a "must be" extension for me.


* Great extension that does exactly what it says it does: integrates most popular CMS and most used LMS together.

* Decent documentation.

* Lot of possibilities to integrate Joomdle to other Joomla's extensions (I'm using Kunena integration myself).

* All the problems I had were related to wrong configuration, not the extension itself.

* It's FREE!


* Configuration is pretty challenging if you're not an advanced user (I'm not). You have to configure A LOT both in Moodle and Joomdle in order to get Joomdle work. But I'm not agree with jeddell that "if you do not understand what XML-RPC is /.../ unfortunately Joomdle is not the component for you". I have no clue what XML-RPC is, but Joomdle is working on my site. :) All you need is to carefully read and follow Joomdle's documentation, time and patience.

* Support in Joomdle's forum is a bit slow, but you'll eventually get one. It's a free extensions and I can understand that Antonio and Chris can't sit there 24/7.

* If you're using an older version of Moodle (1.9 and prior) you can't use many Joomdle's possibilities and you may not be able to get rid of some errors (like that "the Joomla URL is not correct in the Joomla authentication plugin in Moodle" when using multilingual Joomla mentioned in umal21's review).

Great product and thank you, Antonio and Chris, keep up the good work!

I installed Joomla 1.5 and moodle 1.9.12 in localhost (windows). I also integrated joomdle in joomla but the systems doesn't work, perhaps The Joomla URL is not correct in the Joomla authentication plugin in Moodle
