Hi - Moodle looks great! We're intending to use it for our course management for our 1400 staff organisation and for training to about 100 partner community services organisations that access our training centre.
It's the registration/enrolment bit that's worrying me a bit... I'm presuming that we'll need to get an online registration system custom built, but maybe I've underestimated Moodle? Could I give you the general idea of what we need to do?
We have staff who exist in the corporate HR system (Empower-HR) which also records who their boss is. Our training system is in an Access DB (about 35 tables). When a staff member wants to do training (and thus become a record in our DB), their boss needs to approve their application first (online, probably email) before it hits out Access DB and gives them access to the Moodle site for that course. That's Trick 1.
Trick 2 is that a partner organisation needs to nominate some managers who do the same thing for their staff. First, the organisation needs to be created in our system with an online endorsement from one of our managers. Next, when their staff see one of our courses they need to apply online and their manager needs to approve their application (online, probably email again).
That's the basic idea... do you have any suggestions/ideas/advice about doing this sort of stuff with Moodle?
Best regards, Jon
