Moodle - the open source software that's getting serious

The exhibition, which opens on Tuesday and runs until Thursday, is organised by the Chartered Institute For Personal Development and will be attended by thousands of HR managers, training outfits and others keen to learn about the latest learning and development techniques.

HowToMoodle based in the Midlands, at Wolverhampton University's Telford campus. The company has quickly become the leader in showing others how to take advantage of the Moodle system.

"This is serious software for serious learning," said founder and MD Ray Lawrence. "It is now embraced by industry, local authorities, universities, colleges, and charities and is accepted as the future for on-line learning courses."

HowToMoodle will be the sole voice of Moodle at the exhibition, and Ray says he's expecting a lot of interest. "Many people have heard about Moodle, and have dabbled a little or had some ad-hoc training; but they still don't understand how powerful it is.", continued Ray. "We show people how to get the most out of it;

how to initiate their own coursework and learning programmes".

The company is growing rapidly, with customers scattered all over the UK and beyond, with a busy web site - and a growing army of enthusiastic organisations.

HRD 2008 is at the ExCel, London Tuesday-Thursday. Info from the exhibition web site, at:
