Moodle hosting is available to your school on a per-course or full district model. Under both models there are no restrictions to the number of students your course can have in each course. Hosted Moodle courses and Moodle Environments are intended for hybrid and blended course environments within your school district. Cross-district enrollment in an online course must be run through a Minnesota Department of Education Approved Online School. If you are an online school looking for Moodle hosting, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
For Moodle Course Hosting, SWWC will provide your teacher access to their course. Enrollments of students can be handled through manual, template imports or student self-enrollment with a customized enrollment key. Each unique course setup will be billed out separately and can be used for the extent of the school year.
For Moodle District Hosting customers, SWWC will provide you with a customized Moodle environment of your own, assist in integrating your Moodle environment with your Active Directory infrastructure and provide you with administrative access to your Moodle server. Your Moodle District Hosting service also includes Moodle 101 training for up to 20 teachers at your district. Mileage expenses incurred by SWWC traveling to the School to complete such training are included in the annual contract fee, but the School is responsible for other travel expenses that may be incurred. The School may purchase additional training at the School’s Technology Services rate.
