Webanywhere present at International Schools networking event in Asia
Education technology specialists Webanywhere recently co-sponsored the 2012 SEASIMS conference, hosted by the International School of Penang in Malaysia.
Webanywhere were proud to co-sponsor the event, as part of a growing focus on the international market. Many of the attendees use the Moodle Learning Platform, and are seeking to integrate the system with SIMS in order to improve learning outcomes and parental reporting.
Webanywhere have been official Moodle Partners since 2006, and were the only Moodle Partner to be appointed to the UK Government IMLS Framework, as an approved supplier of Learning Platforms to the education sector.
The company have rapidly expanded into the international market, hosting Moodle Learning Platforms for multiple schools and businesses around the globe. SEASIMS member Saint Joseph's Institution International in Singapore are the latest school to benefit from a bespoke Moodle platform, hosted and supported by Webanywhere, and introduced the company to the SEASIMS group.
Webanywhere e-learning consultants Sebastian Francis and Peter Coulson were invited by SEASIMS to present the company’s Moodle and Moodle/SIMS integration services, designed to improve teaching efficiency, allow access to management data anytime, anywhere, and provide real time parental reporting. They were also on hand to provide expert advice on getting the most from a learning platform, and access to e-learning via mobile devices.
The ability for groups of schools such as SEASIMS to share resources and collaborate is no longer limited to periodic conferences and get-togethers. Moodle allows affiliated schools to link together online, creating a space to share resources and lesson plans, interact and promote collaborative learning. The Moodle network feature allows a school to share a central communication and resource hub, and link with other school’s Moodle sites. These links can be formed by local clusters of schools, with a shared curriculum and educational system / culture, or by schools looking to find out more about their peers on the other side of the world.
In an increasingly connected world, the great potential of e-learning technology for collaboration beyond the classroom walls is being realised, as the constant development of tools such as Moodle opens new possibilities for educators.
