    We are considering going down the managed Moodle route - any recommendations of which companies offer good service? Thanks.
     
  2. Can I ask why you're not tempted to "go it alone" and install and manage it yourself? It's a lot of time and effort, but the managed moodle route gets a bit expensive and the drawbacks seem to outweigh the benefits of choosing the free software. I'd be tempted to go Frog if I was choosing managed as it's a far more user-friendly system.
    Back to managed Moodle's - WebAnywhere are quite friendly (aka SchoolAnywhere and alike) but expensive (SIMS plugin alone with support and upgrades can be around £3k in the first year) - its worth asking around and getting some quotes ... support will be the same at the end of the day, it's just like shared web hosting providers (but more expensive!)

    I don't work for them but they ran the Moodles for hundreds of schools in Lancashire and Cumbria (until we got reorganised and taken over by BT) - they do packages dependent on the size of your establishment and are very flexible - and as some of them are core developers for Moodle they know what they are doing as well.
