eLearning Information

VMP has established its own elearning server using the open source LMS software, Moodle. This allows us to fully test our courses in a true online environment in order to keep errors to a minimum. Moodle was developed here in Australia and is now the leading LMS software in the world. Open source is good because anyone can look at the code of the software. This means bugs are more likely to be picked up with so many developers looking at it compared to the code being locked down in a company with limited eyes to see it. In addition to Moodle, there are a number of alternative open source software products that can also deliver very good results.
