Create new RACHEL-Plus module by myself

If I want to create a custom module ‘Textbooks for my country’ by myself, is it possible?

Yes! You can just collect the textbooks in a google drive folder and send us a link. We can make the module no problem. Which country are you in?

Thank you. I am from Myanmar(Burma).
From Wiki,
(Wikipedia) > (wikipedia Myanmar version)
(wiktionary) >

And I have some resources which copyrights are only available for this project only. For this kind of situation, can I create a module? Regarding this video, it costs 500 USD to 2000 USD for customizing. We cannot afford that much.


@khinelay – the Wikipedia and Wiktionary pieces are easy to add thanks to some software called Kiwix. To create your own module, you just need to create some HTML to navigate around your collection of textbooks. If you find someone with HTML experience, it’s a very easy job.

Thank you. So, I can create my own modules for Rachel. I created some static websites for Khan Academy (Burmese).

And Wikipedia(Myanmar) and Wiktionary (Myanmar), can you make a module for us?


Yes, if you provide me the content in a Google Drive or Dropbox or FTP transfer

Dear jeremy,

This is the Wikipedia (Myanmar) - kiwix zim file from kiwix.

Thank you.

Thanks, sorry I did not see this earlier. What do you want the module to say? What language is this in? Please put together a couple sentences which will show on the RACHEL homepage explaining this module in its language.

What do you want the module to say?
The Burmese Wikipedia is the Burmese language edition of the free online encyclopedia Wikipedia. This edition was started in July 2004, and has about 39,000 articles as of June 2018.

What language is this in?
Burmese language (Myanmar language which is used in Myanmar (Formerly known as Burma).

I hope I answered your questions. Thank you so much.

Thanks, I was thinking you could write that out in Burmese instead of English. Is that possible?

yes, it is possible. I can write it in Burmese & English.
The Burmese Wikipedia is in Burmese:
“ဝီကီပီးဒီးယားသည် သုံးစွဲသူများက ပူးပေါင်း၍ ရေးသားတည်းဖြတ်သော စွယ်စုံကျမ်းဖြစ်ပါသည်။ ဝီကီဟု ခေါ်သော ဝက်ဘ်ဆိုက် ပုံစံတစ်မျိုးကို အသုံးပြု၍ ပူးပေါင်းရေးသားခြင်းကို အဆင်ပြေစေရန် စီမံထားခြင်း ဖြစ်ပါသည်။ သုံးစွဲသူများမှ နာရီအလိုက် ပြင်ဆင်မှုပေါင်း များစွာကို ပြုလုပ်၍ ဝီကီပီးဒီးယားကို ပို၍ကောင်းမွန်အောင် ဆောင်ရွက်နေကြပါသည်။”

When I gave the RACHEL to the monastic school in Myanmar (Burma), children were so excited to use it and they loved the phonics & stories. For Myanmar (Burmese) contents, I use the Burmese, not English.

Dear mdbogo,

Nice to meet you. I’m following this guide to create a own module.

I’ve sent you an email also. To create a module for my static website,
I use this link as a reference,

  1. In the rachel-index.php, I added the module name, description, etc.
  2. Put that rachel-index.php into your static website.
  3. Give your static website folder a name. eg: ‘en-Kenya’
  4. Put that folder into your RACHEL+ module’s folders.

Drop me a line if you need to know something. I can tell you as much as I know. Cheers!


Hi, we are a Informatic school in cameroon,association linux friends Limbe cameroon, we begin to work with Rachel. In our school we use moodle as elearning platform. The main problem of Rachel is to adapt the learning stuff to the reality of the region. That’s why we would like to change the lesson.
So first question:

Is moodle behind the lesson in Rachel?

  • If yes it should be easy to update, create delete new course as we can do it in moodle.
    Else how to create update delete lessons in Rachel

@luglimbe I am also interested in developing a moodle for the RACHEL. But I’m still researching it. Some recommends MoodleBox.

So, the expert @jeremy will know more about it.

Kind Regards,

Hi everyone, we do currently have Moodle on RACHEL–you can view it here at, though we don’t have an online preview available. It makes it easy to organize lessons. We have also recently added Kolibri to RACHEL, which also has features for organizing content, creating lessons and quizzes, etc.
