About us
Gnomio is not a company. We are just a few Moodle fans offering free tools for the e-learning community.

We are hosting near 17000 e-learning sites and every month we provide service to over 300000 students at no cost.

Terms of Service
We provide this service at no charge and with no guarantees.

Your site must comply with Google AdSense content policies.

Server abuse, spamming, hacking, piracy and other illegal activities are forbidden.

We reserve the right to terminate and deactivate any site from our servers for these activities or for any inappropriate content posted to sites.

Capabilities and Restrictions
Unused sites will be automatically disabled after 30 days without a valid login (only a week if the site is empty).
Disabled sites will be permanently and irreversibly deleted from our backups three months later.
If you are an active donor your site will not be disabled.

BigBlueButton recorded sessions will be deleted after 30 days.

There are no limits on bandwidth or disk space, but our resources are somewhat limited. We are not Google. Please don't abuse our service.

You may (and you must) create and download manual backups of each of your courses, but all Moodle backup files (*.mbz) present at your site will be deleted every day. Just for disaster recovery we run full system backups instead of internal Moodle backups.

Support
There is a vibrant online community of Moodle users who respond to each other's inquiries. Also you may check the official docs, some manuals or lots of books.

Advertising and Donations
You may switch off the advertising on your site by making a donation using any of the PayPal buttons below. Please tell us your site name!

   Donate $20 $20 and get a month without ads on your site.

   Donate $50 $50 and get three months without ads on your site.

   Donate $150 $150 and get a year without ads on your site.

You will have the same hosting, quality of service, restrictions and support.

If you become a donor for a year you will have some advantages:

  • Faster email sending every minute (approx). Non donor sites run that task only once every hour (approx).
  • If you don't use it for a while your site will not be disabled during donation period.
  • Global search will let you search everywhere on the Moodle site that you have access to. (Experimental)
Remember - we are not a company. By donating you will be supporting site hosting and development, as well as helping us to give this service for free to other users who cannot afford it.
Advertising income is not enough to keep this running.

Please allow a couple of days to process donations.

Plugins
For security reasons you are not allowed to install your own themes and plugins nor have access to the database or the filesystem but feel free to suggest anything you like and we will review it. If it is of general interest and well maintained we will install it for all users.

WARNING: In your site you can find many some additional Moodle plugins, most of them are initially disabled. If you decide to activate and use any of them you must understand that these plugins are not official components maintained by Moodle.org. The developers could abandon them at any time.

After an update you may discover that an unofficial plugin is no longer available or it does not work properly.

You can distinguish which are the unofficial plugins by looking at
