Baltimore, MD October 29th, 2009 -- Moodlerooms, Inc., leading provider of a reliable, secure and scalable learning management platform (LMP) with open-source Moodle at the core, has announced today its partnership with the Cisco Entrepreneur Institute, an initiative dedicated to fostering the entrepreneurial spirit and the success of small- and medium-sized businesses worldwide. This powerful collaboration has resulted in the first integration of Moodle and Cisco WebEx Training Center, a live or on demand web conferencing and training platform that engages learners with interactive, media-rich online instruction.

The integration, which will be available in the first quarter of 2010 exclusively through Moodlerooms, enables users to create, facilitate, record and track WebEx sessions entirely within Moodle. The Cisco WebEx Training Center subscription allows for meeting or class sessions to be facilitated not only by voice through phone conferencing, but also face-to-face through video conferencing displaying up to six web cams at one time.

Moodlerooms clients will be able to access WebEx using single sign-on capabilities, so there will be no need for users to sign in again. Scheduled sessions will appear in the Moodle calendar and are facilitated directly from within the Moodle course. Attendance is tracked in the Moodle grade book.

"This integration will be a very popular addition to the synchronous collaboration and communication options that our growing partner network affords our clients," says Moodlerooms CEO Martin Knott. "This is a major advancement for the online learning industry. Who better than the Cisco Entrepreneur Institute to help connect our customers with educators and learners across the globe?"

Moodlerooms has also provided the Cisco Entrepreneur Institute with other best-of-class solutions and customizations for entrepreneur enablement and training, including the development of a new and flexible Moodle course format, content repository, and translation management system.
