Our Next Evolution: eThink Joins Teams with Open LMS

By December 7, 2020 No Comments

In 2008, eThink Education was born in response to particular needs in the LMS market: more flexible LMS solutions, better support, and a comprehensive approach to eLearning. Over the past 13 years, our company has grown to provide institutions and all types of businesses with the high-touch, high-quality support they need in order to empower them to meet their eLearning initiatives.

As our company has grown, we’ve adapted in order to meet the changing needs of our clients in a wide range of industries while always maintaining our obsession with client success. Today, we find ourselves presented with an incredible opportunity to continue to adapt and become the best eLearning solutions provider that we can be for our clients. Today, we join Open LMS (as well as the newly-acquired eCreators) to become a member of the Learning Technologies Group family and the largest combined Moodle and Totara provider in the world.

This partnership gives us the capacity to bring about innovation around the LMS products and services that we offer at a much larger scale, and we look forward to getting to work on some of the ideas we have over the months to come.

Joining with Open LMS brings our workforce to over 140 employees across the globe, making it even easier for eLearning professionals anywhere to take advantage of a portfolio of eLearning solutions and world-class support. Open LMS forms a part of Learning Technologies Group (LTG), a global market leader in learning technologies and integrated talent management which has a combined expertise of just over 800 people across 10 different companies.

When it comes down to it, what we’re most excited about with this partnership is the ability to grow into our best self and provide more value than ever to our clients.

Open LMS, the recently acquired eCreators, and eThink all have unique strengths in their respective businesses. These strengths, now combined with the other existing business lines under the LTG family of companies, will give us an expanded set of products and services, allow us to provide even better service, and give us a complete global reach, which we believe is extremely exciting for our clients. We cannot wait to begin unlocking this value to our clients and the Moodle and Totara communities at large.

Over the months and years to come, we look forward to offering existing Open LMS customers the level of world-class support that eThink clients have already come to know and love by bringing together more great people to focus on this mission. And we are excited to be able to offer new and improved solutions and services – with more innovation to come!

In the immediate future, in order to closely align our goals for our support, products, and people, myself and eThink’s COO & Co-Founder Cheryl Patsavos will be moving into new roles within the Open LMS core leadership team. Cheryl will lead Customer Success – a testament to her success in creating our award-winning Services Team – and I will lead Sales with a focus on the acceleration and unity of our great companies.

We look forward to doing big things over the months and years ahead with you all! More to come…
