OETC is now offering free Moodle hosting, which appears to be a hassle-free way for just about any school in Oregon to get started with Moodle. One superior aspect of free, open-source software compared to proprietary, expensive solutions is that getting started is very low risk. At no cost to the school, and now with no install time, one can set up Moodle for a school.
OETC is working to expand our service offerings for our members and today we are excited to announce that we now have free Moodle hosting up to 200 MB available to members!
What is Moodle?
Moodle is a course management system based on pedagogical principles. Teachers and staff can use it to create online courses and/or facilitate meetings and groups online.
o Your own Moodle can be created automatically in minutes
o Members will receive your own domain name (yoursite.eduhost.org)
o What if I want more than 200MB? Accounts can be expanded from 200MB
to 2GB each, by making arrangements with OETC. (Accounts larger than 200MB will incur a fee.)
How Do Members Sign Up?
OETC members may sign-up online by going to http://www.eduhost.org and clicking “Sign Up” in the upper right-hand corner of the main page. The
web site will walk you through setting up your own domain name and activating your new Moodle account. If you have any questions or would like to discuss setting up a larger account, please contact Jake Rosenbalm at OETC at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503.694.4499.
