The Moodle E-Learning Platforms and Technologies Project will mainly deal about the usage of open source education platforms and applications. The E-Learning Systems are increasingly becoming a major actor on education systems and platforms. On E-Learning, the most common platform that is being used is Moodle. Moodle is an e-platform that is built on AMP Servers (Apache-MySql-PHP), which can be run on both Windows and Linux operating systems. Since Linux and AMP Servers are open source, this makes Moodle open to develop and free to use. With these reasons, Moodle has become a major actor on E-Learning Platforms. One of the most important questions at this project is where people can use Moodle. The area of usage for Moodle is so common and wide. It can be used at schools, training and information centers and especially universities. According to the built architecture and specification, Moodle is able to allow more than 10.000 people online simultaneously. Online lectures, exams, homework and assessments can be done via Moodle. This makes it so attractive for the schools and universities. Therefore, the aim of this project is try to increase and disseminate the usage of Moodle Platform. It is also believed that this project will be a good sample for both establishing new partnerships and transferring new technologies between countries and economics. One other important thing for this project is that by the end of the project, guideline, a web site for the important features of Moodle at different languages, installation CD/DVD and, most important, an online moodle platform which will serve with vocational educations, training and certification programs and online lectures, will be bring out.
