Partnership delivers affordable, open source content management for learning organizations

London, UK. – January 14, 2009 – Alfresco Software Inc., the leader in open source enterprise content management (ECM), today announced an OEM partnership with Remote-Learner.net, the provider of open source solutions for online learning management, record keeping and learning object storage to corporate, academic and governmental clients. The partnership will deliver solutions to allow learning organizations using Moodle’s open source course management system (CMS) to access Alfresco’s robust open source ECM repository to support content development and reuse.

Remote-Learner’s Enterprise Learning Intelligence Suite for Moodle (ELIS) will be made available on February 12, 2009, allowing users to store and retrieve resources from within Moodle and Alfresco. This solution will enable learning organizations and existing Moodle users to access the powerful back-end content repository services of Alfresco Enterprise, ensuring security, compliance, and auditability. Users will be able to more effectively manage, preview and track increasing volumes of content and digital assets on Moodle sites using Alfresco Enterprise.

“Remote-Learner’s integration between Moodle and Alfresco provides our clients with a robust content repository for their collaborative, social learning sites, providing easy content sharing and re-use. The announcement of ELIS has generated considerable response from organizations looking to replace costly proprietary commercial solutions with less expensive open source solutions that are fully supported,” Bryan Williams, Remote-Learner.net CEO commented. “Our clients have expressed enthusiasm that Alfresco's SharePoint like features will allow them to centrally manage learning resources from within both the Alfresco and Moodle environments through a tight integration.”

“Alfresco’s partnership with Remote-Learner utilizes the innovation of open source to deliver enterprise solutions for eLearning organizations at much lower cost. Alfresco Enterprise functionality compliments Moodle and makes content authoring easier by supporting content conversion, version tracking and collaborative authoring,” said John Newton, Chairman and CTO, Alfresco Software. “Remote-Learner’s integration enables Moodle users to leverage Alfresco to manage content on Moodle sites in a secure, compliant, and audited environment.”
