Enovation adapts Moodle for second-level

30 May 2007

Irish e-learning company Enovation Solutions has announced the availability of a package of educational software for second-level schools.

Enovation already provides e-learning software for the third-level sector. The new package integrates several open source software products and in-house developed tools with a view to aiding post-primary teaching and learning.

The second-level framework is built on a specially adapted version of the world’s leading learning management system Moodle.

As well as Moodle, the framework includes a website content management module which allows schools to create and maintain their own websites, a full student management system and links to other software packages to enable seamless integration with existing systems.

Enovation’s sales director Gary Mahon commented: “We’ve taken Moodle and optimised it for second-level, adding modules specifically targeted at teaching in schools. We’ve also put in place the training and support necessary to ensure successful deployments. It’s great to see schools embracing this latest technology as it will serve their students well when they move up to third-level.”

The first customer for the package is Portmarnock Community School, Co Dublin. Assistant principal Donal O’Mahony remarked: “Enovation’s package offers comprehensive functionality, compelling ease of use, excellent value and the support we need. I’m delighted to be able to bring such technology to our students, their parents and our teaching staff. Our goal is to promote enhanced learning possibilities among all students and of course offer extra benefits to those with special learning needs.”
