After a decade of leading major change initiatives at a Fortune 50 company, I began my own business in Leadership Development facilitating management teams from nearly 100 companies through a 12 month monthly process. I phased that business out to do more process improvement consulting and have recently been in business development mode 1/2 time working on a concept using rapid content (audio-visual) with Moodle as a means not only to do conventional training and development but to implement initiatives, strategies etc...
I am in the process of converting/creating content for business uses of Moodle. My primary focus is with using Moodle along with Rapid Authoring tools is as a means for "organizational leaders" to roll out their vision, strategies, key inititiatives (customers and internal-focused) etc by using the key structures of Moodle - forums, assignments, Wikis, surves/quizzes ALONG with scorm compliant audio-visual interactive modules. I am actively looking to partner esp for content (leadership dev,people skills, personal effectiveness, mkt...) and hope to have the need to pull in a more technically oriented Moodle Partner to assist in implementing corporate clients as I doubt my shared server for my current website will do the trick.

I have been providing training, consulting and media development services for business and governmental organizations since 1982. My company has changed over the years as technology and the way in which training is delivered has changed. Organizational training companies are facing very exciting times, more so now than at any time since the end of the second world war when many people needed to be trained for civilian jobs. There are two major factors driving this incredible change; globalization and the Internet. As borders begin to dissolve and new powerful trading entities come into being (e.g. EU and Asian giants), language, skills and compliance trainings are in great demand.
Today's adult learner is expected to reinvent him/herself every 18-24 months during the course of their lifespan, or risk moving downward in their standard of living. There are challanges in training the adult learner that are not faced by our teacher cousins in education. Moodle is a wonderful tool that helps me to help my client-base meet these challanges.

Im from the small town of Parachute in Western Colorado. When I graduated high school, college was not an option, so I followed family tradition and went off to the big city to be a secretary. Thirteen years later I had had enough and decided to enroll in college. I loved it so much I went on to earn a Ph.D. in neuroscience and an ABD in clinical psychology from the University of Boulder. But after 10 years of school while raising two children I was burned out. I didnt want to have to relocate to get a teaching job or do a clinical internship, so I began doing personal coaching. Stress management became the most popular topic so I developed it into a course and found Moodle as a way to put my business online.
I was subsequently contacted by a couple of companies looking for stress management for their employees, so I have been working on developing Moodle for corporate coaching and personal development courses. Im embarrassed to say that my original site, lifeworkouts.com has been ignored in the meantime. I have another site that offers Fantastico, so I use it to install Moodle for a company into a subdomain on that site which I then customize to meet their needs. So far my pricing has been erratic, depending on the customer, ranging from per user per course fees, to per time-period access fees. I really enjoy contributing to Moodle.org, it is a wonderful community.

When I first met moodle in 2005, I was fascinated by its functions. I have been using this great online learning platform to deliver online course ranging from professional courses and online language course. The online business and finance English is targeting professional people, it has gained steady progresses.

I was a distance learning specialist for a government agency as a University System employee for 13 years. I watched/directed/assisted 600 hours of training a year using interactive video. The video was part of a blended course which used Moodle to provide supplimental materials and testing. I was admin for 4 Moodle servers and assisted faculty with their courses. I am still a part time adjunct faculty for a community college. I teach software application and business classes.
I also have over 20 years of management experience in job shop manufacturing. My wife and I started a garment manufacturing business with 1 employee and had 35 when it closed. Our business sold to catalogs and boutiques, plus we had our own local retail outlets. We got our first computer in 1984 to assist us with costing. This information system morphed and evolved into a Windows network with an integrated garment production/accounting system.
Over the years, I have been a consultant/trainer at various small businesses (250 employees or less) in New England. I taught employees how to use computer programs and networks so that they were more effective and efficient in their business environment. I have also been part of a team assisting small and larger job shop manufacturer in streamlining their process using MRP/ERP systems.
My Moodle interests are in the interface and figuring out ways to make it do different things in different learning environments. I was an early and prolific contributor to docs.moodle.org . I tried to translate techno talk, to simpler English and create documentation on the basis of questions I saw in forums.
In general, I have been an active volunteer in the Moodle Community since 2006. I slowed my involvment in 2011. In 2015 picked up my involvement in Forum and am looking forward to learning about Moodle 3.x.
Best to all Chris

I stumbled onto Moodle in June, 2004 when I took a Project Manager position with SCME in San Diego, CA. One of their requirements was to establish an e-learning environment on their intranet. Needless to say the cost of e-learning environment software is high, and Moodle offerred by far the most cost effective and flexible solution. I presented Moodle to Senior Management with a course I developed to evaluate the stated requirements. They loved it. We have since customized Moodle extensively and brought the SCME On-Line University online. I have developed extensive Creator / Teacher Training materials and again presented the information via Moodle! I am now in the process of developing extended web-based reporting requirements to front-end Moodle and provide a more global view of the Courses, Activities, and Students. I am also currently working on developing Policies and Procedures which include in-house constraints to Course / Activity configuration and their use. Super product! ...a little buggy here and there, but it doesn't come close to rivaling the bugs in Microsoft.

I have experience in using Moodle in (1) Entreneurial or (2) Corporate Education, but my real business is to "Develop Online training systems" for other companies. I have developed systems for the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria ( http://www.ulpgc.es ), for some big distance learning organizations such as "Fundación Universitaria Iberoamericana" ( http://www.funiber.org ) with more than 3,000 online students from 10 countries from Latin America and Spain and for the internal use of several organizations, such as Academia Canaria de Seguridad ( http://www.gobiernodecanarias.org/academia ). I have been working with e-learning systems since 1995. My experience on it involves more than 200 online courses for more than 10,000 students from 26 different countries (mainly from Latin America and Spain). I have worked on e-learning as a student, teacher, Chief of studies of an Online Master degree on e-Business ( http://www.redti.net ), developer, analyst, designer and Project manager in many different projects and now I own my own e-learning company ( http://www.apren-d.com ).
I worked as an e-learning systems developer for 4 years at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) and worked as a freelance developer afterwards, developing for other companies. Now I am starting a new company, called apren-d, and we are starting to develop e-learning systems also on our own, not only for other companies. Right now, I have a partnership with the University of Las Palmas (in Spanish): http://innova.cicei.com . I try to contribute and help Moodle grow, by participating in Moodle community forums (both in "Using Moodle" and in "Moodle en Español"), helping to translate it into Spanish, and testing and reporting bugs and feature requests. I hope some day I will have time to study PHP and MySQL and contribute coding for Moodle. I have experience in e-learning business, with Moodle and many other e-learning platforms, specially WebCT.
