Fishersville, VA – July 22, 2009 – Remote-Learner.net, Inc. (www.remote-learner.net), an official Moodle partner service provider, today announced general availability of their Enterprise Learning Intelligence Suite (ELIS), integrating three best in class open source platforms to provide advanced learning management features for enterprise level organizations.

ELIS is built on a core of open source web applications, integrated with the Moodle LMS interface and single-sign-on (SSO) API. Remote-Learner’s curriculum management system provides users with the ability to create learning tracks and automatically assign them groups of users. Jaspersoft BI Server, the most widely used business intelligence software, provides managers and administrators with a business intelligence suite for tracking learning across the organization, as well as the ability to generate and share new reports on the fly. Remote-Learner partnered with open sources enterprise content management industry leader Alfresco to provide a content repository to support content development and reuse.

The combined ELIS system provides schools, businesses and governmental organizations with enterprise level functionality previously unavailable with Moodle alone, at a distinct cost savings. ELIS is fully supported by Remote-Learner through an annual subscription service.

“We created ELIS in response to customer demand. Many organizations love Moodle, but needed additional functionality to track learners across multiple courses and report out to the rest of the organization.” said Remote-Learner CEO Bryan Williams. “The result is a system which reduces costly manual tracking and data entry, while providing reduced content management costs.”

“Alfresco’s partnership with Remote-Learner utilizes the innovation of open source to deliver enterprise solutions for eLearning organizations at a much lower cost. Alfresco Enterprise functionality compliments Moodle and makes content authoring easier by supporting content conversion, version tracking and collaborative authoring,” said John Newton, Chairman and CTO, Alfresco Software.
 

By building on an open source platform, Remote-Learner is able to offer its clients enterprise level features for a fraction of the cost of traditional closed-source commercial systems. “Building on these industry leading open source products, we were able to focus on integration and the learning experience, not re-inventing the wheel. I believe ELIS can compete with any other learning content management system (LCMS) on the market, and deliver superior value for the money.” said project lead and Chief Operating Officer, Jason Cole, Ph.D.
