When Learning Pool began hosting OSBC’s Moodle site, on offsite servers, it positioned OSBC for future growth by ensuring a stable, secure, and well-maintained platform. Monique Brewer, Director of OSBC, notes, “Moodle has some buzz now, even in the government sector, where it didn’t before. We’ve seen an increase in the number of public sector groups interested in the LMS since we’ve implemented Stream LMS.” And with Remote Learner’s guaranteed uptime of 99.9%, OSBC can ensure its clients can access their mobile-ready LMS sites on-demand at any time.
Subject Matter Expertise
OSBC solves problems for clients—whether it be managing the Moodle site, instructional design services, or overall training—by handling everything for the client. By letting Learning Pool handle the hardware, OSBC can offer its clients the “turnkey solution” they need. “We can focus on what we do well, the instructional design, the development, and customer service, and let (Learning Pool) handle the back-end,” said Brewer.
“Moodle over the last number of years had gotten to be a much better solution than it was historically and the licensing costs with (proprietary competitors) are very high,” said Brewer. “We’re in a sector where nobody has money. Using open-source solutions through Moodle and (Learning Pool’s) hosted environment allows us to maintain our cost, so we don’t have to charge our users.”
