Remote-Learner (@remotelearner), official Moodle Partner, recently announced that it is releasing it’s ELIS (Enterprise Learning Intelligence System) to the community as part of its open source efforts. ELIS has been Remote-Learner’s paid/hosted service added on top of Moodle for the last several years and now will be open to the community and available as a download for those who want to use it. While this version will be unsupported, documentation on the learning tools will be available. Read more at http://www.prweb.com/releases/2011/6/prweb8573935.htm.
From the release,
“The ELIS for Moodle platform has always been an open source product and has been developed under open source GPL licensing. Remote-Learner is now taking the next step to make it available to the Moodle community,” said Jason Cole, Remote-Learner CEO. “Remote-Learner has always been dedicated to Open Source products, and will continue to provide learning services through Moodle and ELIS to our customers and the community.”
The ELIS for Moodle community release will be unsupported but will provide documentation support to developers and organizations. The community release will be updated regularly, along with the Remote-Learner supported subscription version. For organizations who desire commercial support, Remote-Learner continues to provide a full range of support services for the ELIS for Moodle platform. Support services include access to full tech support, custom development, certified and managed releases, training and professional consulting.
Remote-Learner and other Moodle Partners have created social, learning and administrative layers on top of Moodle in their efforts to create and maintain value added services aside from traditional Moodle-related services which Moodle Partners can engage in. Like Moodlerooms POWER and joule, and Totara, ELIS is one such solution.
