OPEN SOURCE LEARNING

Experts in Open Source Learning Management Systems

We work primarily with Moodle and related platforms (Totara, Iomad etc.) to deliver high quality hosting, development, training and consultancy services to a range of clients varying from small charities to global NASDAQ listed companies. In addition to this we maintain several products that add additional functionality to the already excellent Moodle platform.

While we are not currently Moodle partners and have no formal association with Moodle of any kind we are regular contributors to the Moodle project:

HOSTING

Since 20016 we have hosted sites and provided infrastructure consultancy for a number of clients in UK and North America ranging from 10s to thousands of active users. We use the best data centre providers to deliver highly performant and available platforms. Our extensive experience makes migration and on-going use of our hosting platform a seamless experience.

  • Corporate and public facing training solutions for aNASDAQ listed IT security company

  • UK wide further education provider (~60 schools, ~5k learners)

  • Small charities with serious requirements and tight budgets

  • A UK big four accounting firm

  • A global construction company (>16k learners)

DEVELOPMENT AND TECHNICAL CONSULTANCY

Having been contributing to, building plugins for and customising Moodle since 2010 we are able to design and deliver high quality idiomatic solutions which meet client specific requirements while making the most of the wider Moodle platform.

We take an Open Source first approach, evaluating the value any project can derive from existing plugins and functionality before designing the best approach to close the gap to meet client requirements.

Our regular contributions to the Moodle project (listed here) and the volume of plugins we have created has given us insight across the entire platform allowing us to judge when to build within Moodle, integrate additional platforms (Drupal, Magento, Wordpress etc.) and when not to use Moodle at all.

PRODUCTS

Having worked with Moodle since 2003 we have developed a slowly expanding range of products that meet common client requirements.

While we release a substantial amount of work as Open Source via GitHub and the Moodle plugins database, we also sell some commercially.
