Baltimore, Maryland (Vocus/PRWEB) February 07, 2011
Moodlerooms, Inc., the provider of proven, enterprise Moodle-based e-learning solutions has established a joint partnership with leading broker and aggregator of digital educational content, Cambridge Global Grid for Learning (GGfL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Cambridge University Press, one of the world’s most respected publishers, to further the effort of providing educators and learners across the world with a safe and reliable environment to search, stream and download high quality and copyright-cleared learning resources from multiple content providers.
Over 40 content providers are currently available through GGfL, including Cambridge University Press, Intel, Science Photo Library, Classical Comics, Corbis, Reuters, EduPuzzles, and Bridgeman Education, making it one of the most comprehensive digital educational content collections in the world.
Within the joint partnership, Moodlerooms will provide GGfL with the feature-rich, scalable and sustainable e-Learning platform joule® in which to deliver its library of over one million educational digital multimedia resources from an extensive and growing range of trusted content providers. In turn, GGfL will connect Moodlerooms customers at all stages of education – from kindergarten through adult - to their library of digital multimedia content, making it easier to engage, motivate and inspire learners in new and creative ways.
Julian Mobbs, Managing Director of GGfL, comments: “Feedback from the K-12 institutional market highlights two key questions: how can schools get the most out of learning platform technologies; and how can educators and learners easily access and integrate digital resources from multiple sources into day-to-day teaching and learning, safely and reliably. The answer is simple: platforms and content must work seamlessly together. Our partnership with Moodlerooms provides a learning platform pre-populated with a digital library of learning resources that educators and learners can easily access and use alongside their lessons, courses and activities - all within a single and adaptable environment.”
“One of the most pressing challenges for today’s educators is how to seamlessly incorporate the best learning technologies and content into the classroom for the long term. Moodlerooms’ partnership with the Cambridge Global Grid for Learning is a pivotal opportunity to overcome that challenge,” says Joe McAvoy, Moodlerooms VP of Corporate Development. “Moodlerooms is honored to establish a partnership with Cambridge Global Grid for Learning and to contribute to its well-respected legacy of aligning efforts to serve the evolving needs of a vibrant education community.”
GGfL offers a dynamic selection of resource types, including interactive activities, contextualized audio and video files, images, e-books and other documents from some of the world’s most innovative providers. With the assistance of an intuitive search and retrieval system, learning resources can be easily searched by keyword, age range, subject, resource type, content provider and timeline, ensuring educators and learners can quickly identify and access the resources they need.
Based on managed open-source Moodle, the world’s most widely-used learning management system, Moodlerooms’ enterprise e-Learning platform, joule, provides a sustainable, flexible and intuitive platform for seamlessly deploying robust, interoperable content throughout the various modules and tools that have been integrated into the e-Learning environment.
