Remote-Learner's SWCC Solution Powered by Moodle
From learning more about SWCC's specific needs, our team has outlined a brief overview of a tailored solution.
Based on extensive conversations with SWCC, Remote-Learner believes a Moodle-powered solution to be the best fit. The highly configurable nature of Moodle’s open-source code allows Remote-Learner to fulfill its consultative, solution-based promise to our clients. By allowing the Remote-Learner team to flex its instructional design and learning technology muscles, Moodle is an ideal vehicle for Remote-Learner to use in the creation of a learning platform that can achieve SWCC’s vision for learning. Remote-Learner releases a new version of Moodle each year and each release is full of exciting new functionality. SWCC has expressed interest in Moodle 3.2. Some of our favorite Moodle 3.2 features include:
- The ability to import and export competency frameworks.
- A new, default media player (VideoJS) which improves accessibility with the option of captions and subtitles for any audio and video files.
- A new graphing library that makes charts and graphs more attractive as well as more interactive.
- A mobile app that offers a more unified experience with the desktop version.
- Improved messaging and notification features
- User tours that allow administrators to create and share walkthroughs with teachers, students, and all other users of the site. These user tours offer a walk through of a site, keeping teachers and students aware of new site navigation or offering an introduction to new users
