We're spending it wisely, but there's always room for improvement! Moodle is a good skill to have the way the industry is going. We're just looking at the potential of setting one up here supported by Learning Pool; a local government consortium so the development and cost is spread across many to reduce cost and enjoy the benefits of regular enhancements!
Hi Andy, Donald pointed you in my direction. Apparently you've had some experience working with Saba learning management systems, and I'd be interested to talk to you about your experiences. Thanks, Libby
