This project will also include study aids for use in learning material covered by the exams.

Components

Moodle Learning Management System

You can find the OWASP Academies Moodle learning management system (LMS) here - http://www.owaspa.org/moodle

The Moodle learning management system will contain eLearning courses to teach OWASP related application security content related to the exams in this project. The LMS will also host exams from this project so that students can log into the system, take an exam and get a grade. Independent students can use this system and educators can also administer an exam for a class or multiple classes of students.

The first deliverables of this project on the LMS are:

  • OWASP Top 10 Threats and Mitigations eLearning course. Available by 2/4.
  • OWASP Top 10 Threats and Mitigations exam. Available by 2/4.
