I live in Thailand and am setting up a programme to provide online courses to Burmese people living here. I want to use Moodle and have basic but necessary questions about hosting Moodle…I first plan to have 15 students for a pilot-project and after, maybe 100 would access. I will use Moodle only for Forum, Chat, and for testing students and obviously get the content online.
- do I need to have a hosting company near Thailand , or even in Europe or USA , it would be OK ?
- I have Windows XP and many students have older Windows versions on their computer, I guess I can’t get a recent Moodle version, which one would be OK for Windows 2000 and to use Moodle for mainly Forum and Chat ?
- hosting in a normal company (not a Moodle Partner) causes also limit when there are more than 15 students ( see Moodel Hosting Sites http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=41713) or some people reported problems to contact maintenance team (Siteground.com as a Moodle Host http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=74874 ), so is there a solution between that and a Moodle partner ? Did anyone are satisfied of a cheap and good solution for 15-30 students ?
