Buying in moodle support
Anybody come a cross (or recommend) a company providing on site moodle support (well mostly remotely but I mean supporting a server on our site).
I've discussed this with LUNS and it's not something they are keen to offer. We have moodle 1.9 on site at the moment but it's kept shielded from the internet, students access it off site by remote desktop.
We'd like to go to 2.x version of Moodle with SIMS integration using ZiLink. This would be a direct replacement for an underused SLG. The savings there would go towards a service contract for moodle where a third party would be responsible for keeping it patched and providing moodle expertise when needed. Moodle would then have direct access to the internet and students won't need to RDP into school to use it.
Anybody out there doing something similar, pros cons? Feel free to pm me company contact info and the likes.
Do SchoolsICT not do support of Moodle themselves along with ZiLink support? @penfold_99 will know more!
Try here: School Learning Management System - Moodle VLE / Virtual Learning Environment for Schools | Webanywhere
We are currently using them for our parental Portal which is hosted in school and other developments.
European Electronique have been good for this in the past.
Thanks for the signpost. @Finch7 has been in touch.
Well the webanywhere offering will meet our needs, we'll see how the quote comes out.
As will the SchoolsICT offering.
Went with Remote-Learner who teemed up with overnetdata.
