Learning Management Systems (LMS)
We can help you to support and develop your Learning Management Systems (LMS). Our team have many years of experience of working with a wide range of LMS applications for education organisations and institutions, including Virtual Learning Environments (VLE), induction and orientation portals, academic business management systems, assessment and compliance platforms.
Virtual Learning Environments (VLE)
The choice of VLE software for the academic marketplace is ever growing. We are conversant with most of the industry leading VLE products. However, we specialise in supplying support services for the Moodle.org and Microsoft SharePoint platforms. This means that we can offer impartial advice and help you to deliver the most suitable VLE hosting, deployment, integration and technical support options for your organisation.
Classroom Video Recording & Streaming
‘Flip’ teaching or the ‘Flipped’ classroom concept is turning education on its head, the model inverts traditional teaching methods, delivering instruction online outside of the classroom and moving “homework” into the classroom. We are able to provide bespoke classroom audio and video recording or video streaming solutions. Teachers can create a virtual classroom or record videos that students can view at home or from any location. This method allows valuable class time to be spent completing collaborative and interactive activities to reinforce learning concepts. If you’re considering adopting a flip classroom model or wish to discuss the benefits and technical requirements contact our education specialists.
Microsoft SharePoint Portals for Education
Our SharePoint development team have years of experience in designing, building and developing bespoke software applications, websites, intranets and portals for the education sector. We create powerful automation tools that can provide your organisation with the collaborative, mobile and virtual work styles that help educators and students work together and stay productive from any location. We have helped many different academic organisations to integrate and “web enable” their business and learning management systems to supply new and effective methods of sharing and managing information.
We understand the high importance placed on wired and wireless network speeds and the resilience of your campus computer network. Our network infrastructure team can design, plan, install, upgrade and support your campus network to meet the growing demand of your user base.

- Find the right teacher, student or administrator and make richer connections, with new enhanced IM and presence features, including pictures and locations.
- Collaborate your way, using desktop and application sharing, PowerPoint uploads, or rich white-boarding, including the ability to copy and paste text and images.
- Need to meet with other educators or students? Want to schedule a parent-teacher or staff meeting via telephone or video conference? You can schedule and join meetings with a single click in Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Skype for Business.
The education sector has very specific needs in terms of internet connectivity, security, content filtering and connection speed. We are authorised to supply a wide range of internet security, high speed connectivity and SIP trunk packages aimed at large and small academic organisations.
