CourseDirector Newsletter 11 October 2011

Hello from CourseDirector, the number one LMS/VLE/Gradebook in the Google Apps Marketplace, that allows you to run all your courses through Google Apps for Education.
Just a quick reminder for new schools that if you would like to trial our way of working natively with Google Apps, but are not yet ready to roll out CourseDirector across all your casses you can sign up to the 50 user version initially for only $199 a year, then if you are ready to adopt CourseDirector more widely we can just move you up to the plan for your school size.
Upcoming CourseDirector features:

We have two great features coming soon to CourseDirector by popular request from our partner schools:
Firstly ‘Course Discoverability’, allowing your students to sign-up from a course catalog, is almost completed and we are really excited about this feature.
Secondly for K-12 schools ‘Parental Access’, allowing parents to sign on to view grades, attendance and report cards from an external Google account is in development and we will announce the release date shortly for this.
It’s important to stress that like all or features these are options for the admin to activate so schools who wish to continue working the current way can of course continue to do so.

    CourseDirector at Middlesex University:

    We are delighted to be working with the Middlesex University Institute for Work Based Learning to power eLearning in this innovative faculty at Middlesex. We are already working with Oak Hill College, an associate College of Middlesex so we are delighted to be increasing our cooperation with one of the UK’s largest Universities.

    Also a warm welcome to Riverside High School, Marymount School and the other K-12 schools we have partnered with this past week.
    Comparison of CourseDirector to Moodle:
    Due to Moodle being the most widely used LMS globally we are often asked to provide a comparison of the

    CourseDirector LMS with the Moodle LMS so this post will attempt to do that briefly.
