Motherwell College Migrate to Moodle
January 2012 – Motherwell College, based in Lanarkshire Scotland, is a further and higher education College with more than 500 staff supporting some 20,000 students.
In late 2010 as part of the e-learning strategic review, the College evaluated the impact of e-learning across the curriculum. As part of that review the College decided to explore alternatives to the existing Blackboard which had been the VLE for a number of years. This resulted in the College opting for a move to the open source alternative – Moodle.
Following a competitive tender process, Motherwell chose Enovation Solutions based on:
- An established track record in successfully providing a range of similar services
- Experience working with Colleges and Universities as well as reputable corporate clients
- A clear and pragmatic migration process
- The ability to work to the College’s timescales
The project was completed successfully allowing the College to go live with Moodle in the Autumn of 2011.
