Moodle success at South Carolina Department of Education
 

With 9,000 users across two major online learning programs, South Carolina Department of Education (SCDOE) in the USA needed a reliable solution that could support its users' individual learning requirements.

Facing a budget crisis and the need for more flexibility, SCDOE, which previously used a proprietary LMS, decided to switch to open-source Moodle. However, after initially attempting to self-host and experiencing challenges with managing hardware, SCDOE turned to Moodle Partner Moodlerooms for a supported solution with Moodle at the core.

All Moodle Partners contribute directly to the ongoing development of Moodle software via funding and/or expertise, so by making use of Moodlerooms' services, South Carolina Department of Education is helping support Moodle development.

Due to increased flexibility and ease of use, instructors were better equipped to accommodate the unique needs of their individual students. As a result, both the South Carolina Virtual School Program and eLearningSC PD saw increased success, with eLearningSC PD success rates increasing from 93% to 97%.
