New Zealand Blood Service utilising Moodle

The New Zealand Blood Service have been using Moodle for many years for internal and external staff, and the public.

The New Zealand Blood Service (NZBS) started using Moodle before 2015, and the environment has continued to grow and become mission critical during the past few years.

Moving from a non-specialist hosting provider to HRDNZ (Certified Moodle Partner since 2006) NZBS were able to develop and improve their site, both from a technical perspective, but also by tapping into the training and development options provided by HRDNZ for NZBS staff – both technical and the internal training specialists and knowledge experts.

Branded as “Elearn” the site became increasingly important as a central location for staff training and development, assessment, and validation of current skills.


A ‘reboot’ of the environment in 2018 saw a re-branding, re-organisation, and re-energising of the platform, as well as a more strategic vision to integrate the Moodle Learning Management System (LMS) with wider IT systems such as Payroll and LDAP authentication.

An increase in the smart use of Moodle via Badges, Certificates, and integration with external systems ensure that Moodle is the Learning and Development hub that connects to other relevant systems.
