eThink Education, a Moodle™ provider and eLearning technology provider, has expanded operations in Nigeria by partnering with Smart Alliance Consulting, a Nigeria-based consulting firm that specializes in providing support for educational services and business success.
As a certified partner of the Learning Management Systems (LMS) Moodle™ and Totara, eThink’s growth from markets in North America and the Caribbean into Africa’s largest marketplace has opened a new learning paradigm that can bridge the education gap in the region.
eThink has established itself as the first Moodle™ Partner in Nigeria and provides quality eLearning services for the open-source LMS including cloud-based hosting, implementation, integration, consultation, and management services to higher education institutions, K-12 schools, businesses and corporations, and government entities.
This partnership between eThink Education and Smart Alliance Consulting will infuse cutting-edge eLearning solutions to make learning more accessible and provide the tools educators need to encourage educational success. Sharing educational resources in a web-based format enables students to learn continuously on-the-go via mobile devices thus saving teachers and students valuable learning per time ratio.
Furthermore, eThink’s African Learning Network (ALN) allows students, teachers, and institutions across Africa have the ability to collaborate and share learning resources through the Moodle™ LMS, encouraging a connected educational experience for learners across the continent.
With over 125 million users across the globe, Moodle™ is the most widely used learning platform in the world. The Moodle™ platform allows educators to incorporate online resources and innovative eLearning tools and strategies into lesson plans to enhance learning in a classroom setting.
For corporations, it allows onboarding, compliance, and professional development resources to be securely stored online, thereby offering learners the much-needed flexibility to learn where they want, when they want, and how they want. Moodle™ also ensures decision-makers and key stakeholders are granted the required accessibility to valuable analytics to empower them to make informed data-driven decisions with respect to their learning plan and programs.
“Our team looks forward to working with Smart Alliance Consulting to support eLearning initiatives in schools, universities, and businesses in Africa,” said Brian Carlson, Co-Founder and CEO of eThink. “Moodle™ offers accessibility, flexibility, and the opportunity to innovate when it comes to how learners can engage with educational content, allowing for an easier and more thorough sharing of knowledge.”
“We look forward to working with eThink to help spread Moodle™ adoption in Africa,” said the senior partner of Smart Alliance Consulting, Engr. Ekpolador-ebi Koinyan. “This strategic partnership between eThink Education and Smart Alliance Consulting aims to broaden the spectrum of successes projected for education in Nigeria by accelerating education and preparing for a digital future in a competitive global landscape.”
