Moodling!

Last year, I built a framework for a training site for my company in an effort to save some money.  This framework was highly restrictive because I was keeping it on the company network.  Still, I was able to build a training site on the local intranet that embedded flash classes, wrote to a database and was something that could be adapted with time all with html, javascript and using Microsoft Access as a database.

I found a much better and more practical solution, with the thought I will not be there to write the test in html and maintain the database forever.  Along comes moodle, an open source course management system.  This is much better than anything I’d dreamt of doing with html and javascript and it’s really amazing in it’s ability to adapt to several situations.  I’m sure with this application, there will not be any problem handing off the on-line training for the company.
