Enables Teachers to Locate and Share Learning Objects Among Multiple Digital Repositories
Baltimore, MD — Moodlerooms, Inc., leading provider of a secure and scalable enterprise learning management platform (LMP) with open-source Moodle at its core, announced today its partnership with The Learning Edge North America, providers of award-winning digital repository EQUELLA.
Moodlerooms, the largest Moodle Partner in the world, is implementing EQUELLA as an integrated piece of its
LMP with no additional licensing fees. This partnership allows educators to “discover” the highest quality
learning objects available to them using rating, tagging and federated search functionalities. Educators can
also classify and search for learning objects by standards, ensuring alignment to outcomes and assessments.
“As a former teacher, I know how important it is to have easy and affordable access to good content and
resources,” explains Tom Murdock, President of Moodlerooms. “Now that we’ve made it easier to support and
access online courses using Moodle, the next step is to make it easier to find and incorporate quality content.
EQUELLA is the perfect solution for that and will be an integral part of our plans for future expansion.”
Institutions can establish a fully integrated environment that fosters collaborative creation, sharing and
discovery of learning objects between multiple trusted repositories — a benefit that expands the current
content management and collaboration functionalities of Moodle. Course creators can then use built-in Moodle
modules and single sign-on capabilities to seamlessly access EQUELLA and incorporate content into courses.
“Moodlerooms’ decision to incorporate EQUELLA as the platform behind their latest initiatives highlights the
role that effective content management has in ensuring a complete teaching and learning environment,” says
Bob Cupitt, Chief Executive Officer of The Learning Edge North America. “We look forward to working with
Moodlerooms to ensure that Moodle users experience the benefits of both solutions.”
Moodlerooms and The Learning Edge North America will be available at EDUCAUSE 2009 to speak about their
partnership. Visit Moodlerooms at booth 123 and The Learning Edge North America at booths 1027 and 1029.
