The NUP e-learning program is supported via dedicated applications and services, which are provided by experienced professionals. The main delivery platform is Moodle, an open source Course Management System (or a Virtual Learning Environment – VLE), which is very popular among Universities around the world. Moodle is conceived as a powerful tool for creating web sites for the delivery of online courses.
