Datatel has extended its previously announced entry into the teaching and learning space by signing an exclusive partnership with Moodlerooms, Inc. The partnership will provide higher education with a teaching and learning solution that is totally integrated with Datatel Colleague® and based on Moodle™, an open-source e-learning software platform.
Moodlerooms augments Moodle by adding valuable functionality, tested reliability, upgraded security, and technical support. The result of the Datatel–Moodlerooms solution is a more complete, cost-effective, and powerful choice over traditional proprietary learning systems.
“Our clients and other education leaders speak fervently about their desire for a powerful teaching and learning solution that is more affordable and fully integrates with their administrative system of record,” said Datatel President and CEO, John Speer. “Datatel has clearly heard this strong message, and the result is a Datatel–Moodlerooms solution that will advance their educational mission at a lower price point to what is now available in the market.”
“The fully-integrated connection between an open learning-management platform and an enterprise resource planning system is long overdue,” said Moodlerooms CEO, Martin Knott. “This partnership will empower academia to make data-driven decisions that impact their success. We truly believe this platform creates a sustainable learning architecture to extend campuses’ learning-management efforts to the global community.”
Datatel will furnish more details about the learning-system solution at its corporate presentation on November 4, 10:30 a.m., Korbel Ballroom 2C at EDUCAUSE 2009 in Denver. Moodlerooms will also be at EDUCAUSE in Booth # 123 to provide more information about the partnership. Datatel will be located at Booth# 304.
