Ensure the success of your online learning project with a Moodle Certified Service Provider

October 18, 2021 By Moodle

Moodle’s network of Service Providers are certified by Moodle’s exacting standards in customer service, technical capability and include our endorsed network of 100 Moodle partners and premium partners in over 50 countries and multiple languages across the world. Providing regionally relevant expertise in customisations, hosting, support and training, our Certified Service Providers help education institutions and organisations transition to, or upscale, their online learning platforms.


Why a Moodle Certified Service Provider?

Moodle LMS is, and will always remain, an open source platform and follows the four open source freedoms. Developers, educators and organisations worldwide are able to share knowledge, freely download, change and adapt the Moodle software and contribute to improving Moodle for everyone. We believe this kind of freedom in education technology is fundamental to allowing education to flourish and grow in a more equitable and accessible way. However, we also recognise that many organisations require assistance in order to get the best out of their Moodle project.

Our Certified Service Providers are education technology experts, with extensive knowledge of the Moodle platforms. There are many companies who provide online learning solutions based on Moodle, but only our Certified Service Providers have been carefully vetted by us and selected based on their industry knowledge, technical expertise and demonstrated ability to effectively service your needs.


Reduce administrative burden

Complex implementations, server configuration, infrastructure architecture, significant scaling, hosting or upgrading a customised Moodle environment to the latest version may result in costly consequences if not done properly. This could include security breaches, data loss or system downtime. If your organisation or institution lacks the bandwidth or in-house expertise to manage Moodle and leverage its functionalities, we recommend that you work with a vetted Moodle Certified Service Provider. This allows you to avoid potential issues and markedly reduce the internal administrative and resourcing burden of configuring and managing your learning management system. 


Access expertise in Moodle custom development

Moodle is globally recognised for its scalability, flexibility, configurability, and customisability. These very features and benefits can make it more complex if your organisation does not have the internal know-how to implement or customise for your specific requirements. Our Certified Service Providers have a unique depth of understanding of the Moodle platforms and have years of experience in code-level customisations, themes, system integrations and custom reporting. This allows you to spend less time configuring and managing your LMS, and more on providing engaging and impactful experiences for learners.


Take advantage of continuous innovation

Moodle Certified Service Providers work alongside Moodle HQ and the community, making contributions to code, developing new features and functionalities, fixing bugs and doing security improvements in a never ending process of improvement. This ensures that Moodle LMS, Moodle Workplace and Moodle Apps are robust, effective and innovative. 

Our Certified Service Providers have a direct line of communication with Moodle HQ and give us input to our product roadmaps. This means that your dedicated Moodle Service Provider can convey your needs directly to the people who make Moodle, ultimately giving you a voice in the direction of our products as well.


Work with specialist Moodle instructional designers

We know that transformative online learning will always be more than just software tools: it takes educators, managers or course designers who know how to use the tools to create great experiences around their subject matter. Across the Moodle Certified Service Provider network, specialist instructional designers can assist and train your teams to create Moodle courses that reflect best practices in accessibility, universal design and online pedagogy. Our Certified Service Providers’ learning design experts can work with you to design courses and training to maximise learner engagement and meet objectives.


Choose your vendor

Unlike most proprietary software, with Moodle your choice of the product is separate from your choice of service provider. This protects organisations from being locked into working with a vendor that provides sub-optimal service, as we see often with closed source solutions. Instead, having the choice of over 100 Certified Service Providers in the Moodle network encourages accountability and a high level of support from vendors.
