We’re proud to note that Lambda Solutions’ own Co-Founder Jim Yupangco gave a well-received presentation on Moodle as an Institutional Virtual Learning Environment at the BC Career College Association Conference. The presentation included an overview of some of the challenges that face learners, businesses and educators, explanation of open source software, steps for successfully using Moodle and a few case studies.
Some highlights that may be of interest to our current clients as well as prospective organizations looking to install or customize Moodle for their own systems:
