Online Learning Platforms for Higher Education
Provide the best eLearning experience for your students, educators and administrators while maximizing your LMS investment.
eLearning provides colleges and universities with innovative options for course presentation and accessibility. However, not all higher education Learning Management Systems (LMS) or eLearning solutions are created or leveraged equally. When shopping for your institution’s next online learning platform, you need a solution that meets the needs of learners, educators and administrators campus-wide. You need a learning platform capable of supporting dynamic learning programs with synchronous, asynchronous, and accessible learning experiences in order to reach and engage with today's diverse learners, both on-campus and remotely.Luckily, Moodle™ for higher education checks all these boxes. With eThink’s fully-managed LMS solution that includes implementation, hosting and world-class service you can satisfy all audiences and streamline overall costs.
Does Your Current University LMS Cover All Your Needs?
In order to effectively educate, your institution needs to provide engaging, dynamic, and accessible learning. As the world’s most widely used LMS, Moodle™ provides a flexible solution that can easily integrate with your university’s most important systems to provide effective, streamlined learning that can benefit both students and staff. With the Moodle™ LMS, you can take advantage of:
Real-Time SIS Integrations
Real-time integrations allow for responsive, instantaneous importing and exporting of user data that includes names, identification records, grades, and attendance. Streamline the course enrollment process with the ability to send information between your university’s two most important systems. The elimination of duplicate data entry helps simplify and automate processes for instructors and faculty and can help improve retention and reporting by documenting changes as they happen.
Analytics and Reporting
Maximize learning initiatives and increase learner success by leveraging robust reporting within your LMS. In Moodle™, instructors can generate custom reports on virtually any learner information that is being tracked, allowing for real-time analysis of student progress on the individual, course-wide, or even department-wide level. This empowers educators to pivot quickly when student outcomes don't follow an expected trend, providing the supplemental teaching and assessment needed to bring them back up to speed. This also provides institution leaders with the visibility they need in order to effectively manage their teams or departments.
Create a personalized experience for learners within specific courses and departments without having to weigh trade-offs or make sacrifices when it comes to customizing your program. Tailor Moodle™ by integrating your LMS with third-party plugins and solutions that address specific needs, allowing your LMS to evolve, scale, and diversify without limitation.
Moodle™ offers a seamless, engaging experience from mobile devices including phones, tablets, laptops, and even multi-screen workstations with no adaptive effort on the part of the user. A mobile LMS makes learning more accessible, allowing students the convenience of learning on their own schedule, wherever they might be.
Moodle™'s adaptive design allows instructors to create dynamic synchronous and asynchronous learning experiences. This allows instructors to evaluate in-seat participation, online assessments, and both formal and informal learning data in one system, serving content for online sessions while providing the space to evaluate the work done in face-to-face settings.
Scalability is the heart of the Moodle™ LMS design, with administrative features that allow for easy grouping of instructors and course content into teaching units, instantaneous permission and access level changes, and an easy transfer of content between modules. Whether you need to support 100 or 10,000 course sections, the tools are there to help you scale as demand grows.
Costs are contained because Moodle™ is an open-source LMS - it allows for various hosting options and flexible customization without the additional licensing rights you pay for with closed-source systems. When your LMS budget is directly allocated to service and maintenance instead of access to the platform itself, you receive a high-quality solution that can be effectively supported by experts.
