Hi, and welcome to our October update.
Team eCreators are going strong as we gear up for the end of year rush. We’ve had a very big calendar year, exceeding all of our growth targets and forging alliances with some major clients across Australia.
eCreators re-signed their Certified Moodle Partner agreement in September and are very proud to be contributing an increasing amount of royalties back to the Moodle project. The Moodle product is getting better and better and striking fear into the hearts of some of those commercial products out there!
Who’s new in the zoo?
Three more staff join the team @ eCreators with Ellen V coming on board to take on Instructional Design and Quality Management. Ellen has worked for some major organisations in the past including The Body Shop and T2. She brings a bag of talent to the organisation and for those of you who have interacted with her already, I’m sure you’ll agree Ellen is having some great impact on the success of our projects.
Greg B also comes onboard as Director of Sales. Greg brings a wealth of corporate experience in the areas of sales, marketing and relationship management. It’s Greg’s primary role to ensure that our customers are happy with the level of service and support they are receiving as well as assisting to develop our growth strategies across the industry. All of our customers will have the chance to meet with Greg shortly (if you haven’t already) to get a health check on your site and future needs.
Hunain joins us in the support team to boost numbers on the help desk. We’re very aware that support is vitally important to our customers and we’re looking to reduce resolution times as swiftly as possible across the organisation. Hunain has a friendly manner and is customer focused to ensure your issues, questions and the like are dealt with swiftly.
We’ll also be putting on a new Operations Manager who will be starting in January. Watch this space!
This year, we had our first time stand at LearnX. It was a huge success and a great opportunity to speak with new and current clients. We got to show off our new product Moodlehouse which was well received as well as our new updates to Learnbook.
We also had the chance to show off Moodle 2.8 – the gradebook received much love! While we didn’t enter any awards this year, we’ll be setting ourselves up for a clean sweep next year!
Greg’s ride for charity.
We had a sausage sizzle in the BBQ area at the back of the building to raise funds for Peter Mac cancer institute last week, with our main athlete and head chef Greg on the tongs. It was a great day and a sellout of all food and beverages to an obliging public. The ride is this weekend, so GO GREG GO!
New Moodle Training Courses
Need Moodle training? We’re now running public courses which all are welcome to attend. Being a Certified Moodle Partner means we provide quality Moodle training. These courses are focused on Moodle Administration training and we have both basic and advanced options.
eCreators have been successful in three major tenders recently and welcome to the fold Red Cross Blood Service, Kmart and Cerebral Palsy Australia. These three custom deployments open Moodle up and show you some of the amazing things Moodle LMS and eCreators can do together.
Site need a health check?
If your site needs a makeover, you need to integrate Moodle with other systems or just need some custom functionality, give us a call and we can arrange a 1 on 1 conversation with one of our engineers to conduct a health check and showcase some of the new functionality we have on offer.
Remember, when it comes to your site and the safety of your data, always go with a Certifed Moodle Parnter. There are many providers around that are just one or two man shows hiding behind a website. Don’t risk your business or the privacy of your data. Make sure the company you deal with has the Moodle stamp of approval. And remember 10% of our proceeds go directly back to Moodle keeping this great product alive.
