Starting today, K-12 educators from around the world looking for a comprehensive e-learning solution will, for the first time, be able to get quality online course content and a technical solution to make it easy to effectively facilitate the courses - all in one place.
The offering is a result of a new partnership announced today by Florida Virtual School (FLVS), an established leader in developing and providing virtual K-12 education solutions to students throughout the country, and Moodlerooms, an organization that combines tools, expertise, a proven process and a partner network to create a solution to help expand, support and share the world's most widely used online learning platform, Moodle.
This new partnership brings together FLVS' award-winning courses and Moodleroom's proven technology and expertise to help administrators seamlessly launch a quality online learning program through FLVS' EasyStart program.
"Giving schools and districts a one-stop-shop for launching online learning programs is a great way to meet the growing demand of today's students," said Andy Ross, Vice President for Global Services at Florida Virtual Schools. "Collaborating with Moodlerooms means we can improve access for students, provide solutions for administrators, and build a stronger education system that will help boost our economy."
Moodlerooms will provide a powerful online learning platform option for FLVS to offer through the program. FLVS will additionally provide EasyStart clients with access to quality FLVS course content, ultimately creating a convenient way to get everything necessary for a successful, high-quality online learning program.
"While Moodlerooms provides the technological solution, FLVS provides the pedagogical solution, creating a perfect, comprehensive answer to e-learning challenges," says Martin Knott, CEO of Moodlerooms. "This collaboration makes it unbelievably fast and easy to get started without having to add any new hardware or staff, especially for those who may not already know much about online learning."
