Wrexham Local Authority creates eLearning network using Moodle

Wrexham Local Authority in the UK has installed Moodle across 10 secondary schools, two work-based learning providers, one advisory learning and teaching support unit, and four pupil referral units.

Simon Billington, Learning and Teacher Advisor at Wrexham Local Authority explains: "Our eLearning network consists of one overarching Moodle Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) acting as an eLearning portal linking to other Moodle VLEs across different schools and colleges who can access shared resources and courses. From anywhere within the authority you can log on securely to access work and records."

The Wrexham 14 to 19 eLearning Portal enables students in the area to study a variety of courses at different locations.

Moodle Partner Synergy Learning is providing a range of commercial services for Wrexham Local Authority including hosting, installation, technical support and training. All Moodle Partners contribute directly to the ongoing development of Moodle software via funding or expertise, so by making use of Synergy Learning's services, Wrexham Local Authority is helping support Moodle development.
