HowToMoodle: OSS Learning Platform Goes Pro

,----[ Quote ]
| Moodle is used for online learning on some 40,000 Web sites, but UK training
| managers have been slow to react. "They are used to proprietary software, but
| this is very often costly to adopt, with heavy license fees that can be
| expensive if large numbers of people are involved.
|
| [...]
|
| "Moodle has been like a lot of open source software, where development has
| been left to individual innovation and training.
|
| "We decided to introduce an element of professionalism into the business."
|
| "We are now training and supporting organizations all over the UK as the
| recognized center of Moodle support," Lawrence added.
