  • Moodle partners have special status granted by Moodle trust in Australia who own Moodle. There only about 50 Moodle partners around the world who are authorised to sell moodle services using Moodle trade marks and so on. In return we give 10% of all our revenue back to Moodle in Australia and it’s that revenue that is responsible for keeping Moodle free. In return Moodlerooms get direct access to Moodle team in Australia and contribute to a lot of the code.
  • Joule is effectively is the same moodle everyone knows, but an improved version with a number of key additional capabilities which improve the experience for teachers, learners, managers and administrators, which delivers Moodle in an enterprise level way tier 4 which is more scalable, reliable, performant, provisioning and support moodle installations.
    Tier 4 explanation http://www.colocationamerica.com/data-center/tier-standards-overview.htm it seems to refer to the robustness of the system
  • First transition: This slide tries to show how Joule is based on the same open source core that everyone uses
    Second transition(the blue): But has many enhancements, including some major additions.
    Third transition Red: You can still use community plugins etc (red) but we ensure they are safe, performant etc.
    Fourth transition Grey: Conduit is our tool to integrate with other systems,
    Fifth transition White: Enterprise everything is cloud hosted and supported by a range of professional services.
  • Express Designer provides tools to create great interfaces, highly branded if you want … and works on mobiles and tablets, sensing the device and delivering all the course content reformatted for the screen etc.
  • Personal Learning Designer is a very powerful tool that allows tutors to create rules that react to learner interactions with the course and can do things like pop up alerts, send emails, add to groups, unlock content etc.
  • We have added a whole new grading tool which makes grading faster and easier – and allows communication with learners from within the grader.
  • Advanced reports give easy access to much better data, including dashboards.
  • World’s biggest Moodle cloud for the ultimate security, performance, reliability etc. Our SLA is for 99.9% Moodle availability – not just servers working.
    While we need to quote everyone individually – and there will be one-off startup costs for implementation etc that can vary, with all those caveats …
    … for most FE Colleges we can provide that functionality, cloud hosting, support, upgrades etc for about £5 per FTE per year (using the official FTE figures). In some WBL situations that may be £5 per user rather than FTE. Less than 2000 users/FTE we have some fixed price packages - £6000 per year for <1000 users/FTE, £9500 per year for <2000 (these include some bundled implementation packages). But every case is different so these are just broad indications.
