Moodle Pty Ltd is pleased to announce its newest Moodle Partner, e-learning services provider eAbyas Info Solutions, based in Hyderabad, India. The new partnership will help support the growth and demand for quality e-learning services in India.
Over the past four years, eAbyas has demonstrated proven expertise in providing Moodle development, support, theme and integration services to clients in India and across the international market. Joining the Moodle Partner program will help eAbyas reach more clients and increase awareness of the benefits and use of the open-source Moodle platform in India & emerging markets.
eAbyas recently released its flagship product CobaltLMS, a Student Information System built on Moodle, designed for colleges and universities. Other projects in the pipeline include the launch of BuildYourOwnLMS website, a service for educational consultants to build their own Moodle in the cloud.
Sushil Karampuri, Founder and CEO of eAbyas says the company is excited to be part of the Moodle Partner network.
“We are experiencing a tremendous growth in internet penetration in India, along with an increase in tech-savviness amongst students and the teaching community. There is a growing demand for online content at an affordable price and an expectation of maximum convenience in the creation and delivery of the content.”
By lowering the barrier-to-entry costs and offering a variety of e-learning models, eAbyas is well positioned to offer e-learning systems based on open-source tools to Indian schools and colleges. “We hope to promote the Moodle e-learning platform through awareness programs in India,” Mr Karampuri added.
Martin Dougiamas, Founder and CEO of Moodle Pty Ltd said: "I'm very happy to have eAbyas join the Moodler Partner group. They have shown the skills and capability to effectively support Moodle in a variety of ways and I feel that our many Moodle users in India will be in good hands when choosing their support."
In contributing to the Moodle community, eAbyas has also embarked upon the Telugu translation of Moodle - a widely spoken language in India.
First released in 2001 as a learning management software package by Martin Dougiamas, Moodle has since developed into a full feature, flexible open source learning platform currently used in more than 230 countries with more than 70 million users worldwide. The focus of Moodle is to provide educators with the best tools to manage and promote learning. Supported by a global network of certified Moodle Partners, Moodle HQ continues to work with developers and educators worldwide to support a fast growing community of Moodle users.
