Learn how to create your own Moodle elearning website.
During the South Africa COVID-19 lock-down, the need for online learning platforms increased with very little resources available.
We have managed to create a learning package, available during the lock-down, to teach those interested in the skills of setting up online learning courses. Our aim is to deliver basic Moodle elearning skills enabling the setup of a basic course.
Our developer and our team have been working with the famous MOODLE elearning package since 2009 and have extensive experience on the technical side of the hosting and managing of a Moodle site; inclusive of several other LMS packages such as hosting and WordPress elearning packages.
Owning your own elearning website is one of the best investments a company can make; with unlimited future returns, but unfortunately it also requires technical skills. Setting up a course is not that easy and can be very time consuming.
Not only do we offer the online learning package at a very reduced price, we also provide each learner with an online test site for 2 months. Can anyone beat that?!!!
