Wiris’ New Partnership with Moodle

MathType, the New Moodle’s Certified Integration Partner

Wiris is pleased to announce our new strategic partnership with Moodle. Wiris has earned the title of Moodle’s Certified Integration Partner by offering MathType, a powerful and reliable add-on that elevates the quality of the online learning experience. This integration meets exacting technical standards and security requirements, addressing real-world educational needs.

With MathType, Moodle users can easily create and edit mathematical equations and formulas directly within the platform. It allows the inclusion of math expressions and formulas into assignments, questions, or communications between users. Whether users prefer the intuitive toolbar or the touch screen capabilities with handwriting recognition, MathType offers versatile methods for expressing mathematical concepts within the Moodle environment.

This partnership will benefit both companies, streamlining the process of selecting and integrating the necessary tools to extend Moodle’s functionality. It provides the assurance of tools that have demonstrated compliance with rigorous technical standards and security requisites, ultimately enhancing the learning experience for our users with user-tested, endorsed integrations. 

“Our solutions have been integrated with Moodle for over 15 years. As we continue to collaborate closely with Moodle, we’re inspired by the positive impact our joint efforts will have on students and educators worldwide,” says Ramon Eixarch, CEO and Co-Founder of Wiris.

At Wiris, we are excited about this new chapter, enthusiastic to further enhance our services, and deeply appreciative of the confidence placed in us.



Creating accessible STEM content

Wiris pushes against the lack of accessible STEM content. 

Our platform uses the MathML standard to be accessible for everybody.

One of the biggest obstacles for the educational community is the lack of accessible STEM content as well as the absence of adequate tools to create said materials. STEM is the acronym of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, an area of education specialized in interdisciplinarity and application of science and mathematics.

STEM content accessible for people with vision impairments are not common. Although nowadays there are many tools to generate accessible materials, the problem lies in the few options available  for the creation of accessible and adequate resources for STEM classes. This creates many obstacles for disabled Stem professionals to make their content available for everyone.

Luckily there are successful initiatives that mitigate this problem. Wiris has built MathType in a way that is totally navigable with the keyboard and fully compatible with the majority of the screen-readers in the market, which allow people with visual impairments to be guided by an off-voice. Thus, Wiris makes sure its products are accessible to everybody.

These accessibility options work for both the process of creating STEM content, and of using and working with it. Besides, WirisQuizzes is also built so that the students can answer exam questions in a fully accessible and autonomous way.

Available for your computer and on-line.

MathType works both for the desktop framework(text editors), and for on-line services(Google services and most LMS platforms), thus making it the most advanced mathematical authoring tool in the market. MathType can achieve this goal by automatically adding alternative text to the created equations, adding it in the HTML code when you are working in a web platform, or to the images when you work with the desktop app.

In addition, all Wiris products are based on the MathML standard, a coding language that incorporates both the structure and the content of the mathematical expression. Many screen-readers are equipped with MathML format reading capability, which makes Wiris accessible in the majority of devices. Moreover, the MathML language has many features that make it very useful for people with disabilities. 

For its ease of navigation with the keyboard and its use of the MathML language, MathType has created a new accessibility standard in mathematical tools both for students and professionals.



Wiris stands with Ukraine

From Wiris, we would like to express our deep concern about the situation in Ukraine, and join so many voices from around the world in calling for peace. We stand with all the people who are suffering at this moment and condemn the use of any military action. 

Wiris joins the firm condemnation against the war in Ukraine made by the ACUP (Catalan Association of Public Universities).

For this, we have made the decision to provide all Ukraine accounts with free MathType licenses until the 20th of September 2022.

Please contact if you have been affected by this conflict and wish to receive a free license.
