About Us

The team at Education and Training Solutions is comprised of technology-savvy educators who have a sincere commitment to quality, affordable online education and training. Our educators understand computers and the remarkable benefits they present for learning, research, and social networking. We are experienced in online teaching and we are experienced in online course design.

Education and Training Solutions utilizes the Moodle open source learning management system for online course and content design. The open source nature of this learning platform mirrors our dedication to collaboration and integration. This open source software is structured around a social constructivist pedagogy promoting the idea that people learn best when they interact with the material, the instructor, and with other learners. Our experience supports this concept as well.

As a part of our commitment to the communities of education and training, we host and support training modules for specific non-profit charitable organizations. We also actively partner with philanthropic organizations.
