The idea of MoodleBox arose between january 2015 and spring 2016 in some forum discussions in the french community of Moodle, when discussing about the construction of a Moodle platform in a little box or on a local computer, to provide an LMS in regions without any network infrastructure. The idea quickly emerged to build it with a Raspberry Pi 3, and to make it accessible via Wi-Fi. Thanks to the perseverance of Christian Westphal, a first proof of concept was proposed.

MoodleBox is a volunteer and non-profit project lead by Nicolas Martignoni on his spare time.
