Provides Management of Digital Lessons for Schools Launching 1:1 Device Programs and Blended Learning Classrooms
Moodle Hosting by RenWeb Provides One-Stop Shopping for Schools
May 14, 2012 – RenWeb School Management Software today announced the launch of RenWeb Learning Management powered by Moodle, combining the strength of the K-12 industry leader in Web-based student management software with the world’s leading open-source learning management system (LMS).
Moodle combines digital lesson content with student collaboration tools and powerful online quiz capabilities to create an interactive learning environment that reinforces traditional classroom teaching.
The integration of RenWeb and Moodle loads students, faculty and courses stored in RenWeb into Moodle, and then updates RenWeb’s grade book and parent/student portal with grades, homework assignments and other content originating in Moodle.
“We are very pleased with how RenWeb’s integration with Moodle can simplify a school’s use of a learning management system,” said Bob Wilbers, RenWeb Founder and President. “We have eliminated all the manual uploads and duplicate key entry of information between RenWeb and Moodle. Plus, our hosting service and training on Moodle makes it that much easier for schools to initially launch and then maintain this important tool.”
Brad Lee, RenWeb CEO, stated, “Our integration with Moodle supports the launch of 1:1 device programs and blended learning classrooms by many RenWeb schools. When launching 1:1 programs, schools often focus on management of the devices, but not on management of the digital lessons they will share on the devices. Moodle allows schools to maximize the value of their hardware investment by organizing and sequencing the digital lessons they will share with students, and by saving it for reuse in multiple class sections or in subsequent semesters.”
