Moodle Helps Action for Children Deliver High Quality Virtual Learning Platform

06 January, 2015

One of the UK’s leading children’s charities, Action for Children, recently commissioned Aurion Learning to replace their current learning management system by deploying the open source platform, Moodle.

The use of Moodle will provide a single point of access for all online learning in Action for Children from pre-induction through to succession planning.

As well as reducing cost, the LMS platform will also provide the L&D team with the ability to extend staff learning and development by utilising the extended features within Moodle, including the integration of virtual classroom technology.

Aurion Learning has worked in partnership with Action for Children for several years to develop and implement a long term E-Learning strategy as well as a suite of E-Learning programmes including:

  • Behaviour Support
  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Induction
  • eFinance & Expenses
  • Safeguarding
  • Fire Safety Training

Barry Kelly, Product Development Manager at Aurion Learning commented:

“Having partnered with Action for Children since 2009, we are delighted to continue to work with the team to upgrade their existing LMS infrastructure that will continue to support their on-going learning and development strategy.”

He added:

“The use of Moodle as an LMS will also mean that learners will be able to access resources, anytime, anywhere, on any device.”

Commenting on the benefits that Moodle has brought to the Children’s charity, Andy Napier, Learning and Development Consultant at Action for Children said:

"The Moodle deployment has created strategic options for Action for Children as our extended workforce of volunteers, foster carers and adopters can now access learning solutions which they were previously unable to.    In addition, it has delivered operational efficiencies and cost savings.”
