Waynesboro, Virginia – August, 13 2012 – When economic complexities continue to drive higher education officials’ backs to the wall, it’s gratifying to know that a company like Remote-Learner will go the distance with you, all the way.
After almost a year in process, the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) has completed one of its most arduous but gratifying tasks. Selecting from among many contenders, the NCCCS has opted to partner with Remote-Learner, U.S. Moodle partner headquartered in Waynesboro, VA, to provide a comprehensive set of Moodle hosting and related services to its 58 member colleges.
The NCCCS is one of the largest community college systems in the nation. Its educational resource needs are similar to many higher ed institutions’ needs: the LMS must be affordable, reliable, and comprehensive. When the NCCCS committee went to work in search of ways to meet its colleges needs, commitee members deliberated among many options. After nine exhausting months, the committee found a solution to its ongoing Distance Learning and educational resource management needs, and late May, Remote-Learner was declared the winner of the RFP process.
Wanda Braker, Executive Director of eLearning and Learning Technology Systems for the North Carolina Comumunity College System (NCCCS) stated, “Four years ago, the Moodle Open Source Collaborative Pilot with Remote-Learner introduced many of our community colleges to the Moodle platform for the first time. Our new cloud solution with Remote-Learner expands that pilot to a fully managed service with room for expansion. We are committed to providing the best open source alternative for learning management systems for our colleges, and our renewed partnership with Remote-Learner provides a solution for our community colleges that is affordable, yet dynamic and scalable”.
Today, the NCCCS is moving forward with Remote-Learner as its Moodle partner, and plans are already in place to execute the roll-out in several structured steps.
