The Challenge

In 2009, Berea College began self-hosting Moodle, the world’s most widely used Learning Management System. Over the next three years, the College’s Educational Technology team recognized that they needed more assistance in maintainingtheir Moodle site.

They contracted an outside company to help solve technical issues on a consultative basis. Soon, however, they began running into additional issues, such as the inability to scale the site on their server and incremental downtime.

Between the time spent internally managing Moodle and the money spent contracting an outside consultancy, the costs to maintain their LMS had risen exponentially. The Educational Technology team knew that there had to be a more cost-effective solution. Berea began evaluating solutions in order to improve efficiencies and combine common practices.

In 2014, Berea College chose Certified Moodle Partner, eThink Education, as their Moodle provider.
