In a new interview with CMRubinWorld, the Founder and CEO of Moodle, Martin Dougiamas, says schools, universities and the labor market must raise awareness and training around the SDG’s

Martin Dougiamas, the founder of Moodle, designed a secure, dynamic, and integrated system to provide educators, learners, and administrators with personalized learning environments. “Moodle originally aimed at higher education, but was rapidly taken up by schools and companies, so it’s used across all phases of learning and all ages,” Dougiamas tells C.M. Rubin, Founder of CMRubinWorld.

To date, Moodle has stayed neutral on the question of what should be taught in curriculum and has left that to educators to decide. However, Dougiamas believes the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals show us the big problems our planet faces, “so big that they need to become the world’s agenda for education.” He believes that education is the solution for all the goals. “We need to raise the amount of awareness and training around these goals in every curriculum in the world, from school to university to workplace.”
