Moodle-based Bullying Prevention Training Hosted on Lambda Solutions Servers
Vancouver, Canada – Dec 10, 2013 – Lambda Solutions congratulates the Victoria-based WITS program on their receipt of a CIHR Partnership Award for 2013. The WITS program–delivered through Moodle LMS–teaches children in primary schools victimization prevention and they host their training programs on Lambda’s managed hosting service.
“One of the criteria for the award is that the project demonstrates results that would not have been achieved by individual partners acting alone,” said Kathreen Riel curriculum specialist with WITS. “Our managed hosting arrangement with Lambda Solutions allows us to offer four open online training programs — the WITS Teacher Accreditation Program, WITS Training Program for Community Leaders, Programme de certification des enseignants, and Programme de formation des leaders communautaires. These programs allow more schools and communities to get on board with the program faster.”
WITS Programs have spread to more than 400 schools across Canada, the United States, and as far away as South Africa, earning endorsements from several authors and organizations. The programs provide free resources, such as lesson plans, online training and posters, to help teachers and community leaders incorporate WITS into their interactions with students.
“We are thrilled that WITS has been a successful program, running their learning management system on our hosting platform.” said Shevy Levy, CEO of Lambda Solutions. “Bullying is unacceptable in any form and we are proud to be a technical support to a program that teaches kids how to recognize and respond to victimization in all its forms.”
