The New Open LMS: Joining Forces to Deliver World-Class LMS Support
As you may already know, Open LMS expanded its team in 2020 with the acquisition of eCreators and eThink Education to provide world-class Moodle support. With a new Open LMS leadership team coming together and a wide expansion of our team, we have a revitalized vision of the future that we are excited to share.
A New Vision for Open LMS
Open LMS went through transformational change in 2020. We became part of the Learning Technologies Group (LTG) family of companies, a change that allowed us to reset who we are and set a new direction for what we want to accomplish. As the world’s biggest commercial Moodle provider, we had solidified our product through powerful technology, scalability, and a unique features offering. But we also knew that we wanted to expand our horizons and bring amplified value to our clients. One way to accomplish this goal was to join forces with other companies within the Moodle space that excelled in different areas and that would complement our service delivery.
With eCreators, Australia’s biggest Moodle provider, we found a great level of experience in corporate learning and training, as well as rich digital content creation capabilities. Then eThink Education complemented our ecosystem by specializing in best-in-class customer service, fully-managed solutions, and a strong relationship with the education community in North America, EMEA, and the Caribbean. Together as a new team, we aim to become the most exciting, dynamic, and powerful company offering open-source teaching and learning experiences in the world.
Meet the New Open LMS Leadership Team
One of the most striking and exciting parts of bringing these companies together is the level of talent we’re pooling together—not only from a business perspective but from a Moodle expertise standpoint.
