Moodle is delighted to announce Eiffel Corp, a leading provider in modern learning solutions adapted for African contexts, as our newest Moodle Certified Partner in South Africa. This partnership is a significant milestone in Eiffel Corp’s mission to empower institutions and address the challenges in education in South Africa and other parts of Africa.
Eiffel Corp CEO, Stefan du Plessis, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, saying, “Officially becoming a Moodle Certified Partner will assist us in our mission to empower institutions with affordable, cutting-edge solutions that foster student success. As a Moodle Certified Partner, we will continue to strive to support institutions to make a positive impact on the lives of students, educators, and communities, enhancing learning experiences and creating a more equitable and prosperous future for all.”
Education in South Africa faces substantial challenges, including issues related to access and equity, infrastructure, resource constraints, quality assurance, pedagogical shift, curriculum relevance, assessment and credentialing, faculty development, policy and regulation. However, these challenges also offer numerous opportunities for digital learning, open educational resources, customised learning, and mobile learning. They also provide avenues for workforce development, entrepreneurship, innovation, and collaboration.
Eiffel Corp specialises in offering extensive Moodle services, addressing all facets of Learning Management System (LMS) requirements. Their services range from custom Moodle LMS implementation and hosting to technical support, training for Moodle administrators and educators, maintenance and updates, data transfer solutions, and consultation and strategy services.
Some of the prominent success stories highlight Eiffel Corp’s impact in South Africa’s education sector. U-Learn is a learning and development program for staff members within the group and communities around Halfway Group Holdings’ businesses. They sought a more efficient and engaging way to train their over 2,000 staff members. Eiffel Corp implemented a responsive learning management system that enabled U-Learn to develop and deliver blended courses effectively.
University of Venda was unhappy with the reporting feature and cost of its previous LMS, so it sought a more suitable solution. Eiffel Corp’s Moodle-based Digikamva LMS addressed these issues, facilitating a complete migration from the previous LMS to Digikamva LMS without disruption to students.
In the case of Botswana University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (BUAN), the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the need for a digital transformation, including an LMS for an integrated remote, online, and on-campus learning experience. Eiffel Corp’s Digikamva LMS provided BUAN with an open-source, cloud-based LMS and the necessary training to ensure successful adoption.
