Trademark License for Moodle
The name Moodle™ is a registered trademark of the Moodle Trust.

There are no restrictions on how you use the name in other contexts (for example, if you use Moodle just to provide courses then you can use the name freely to refer to it.) If you aren't sure of a particular case, please ask us via the moodle.com helpdesk: we'll be happy to either provide you with official permission in writing or help you fix your wording.
