WIDE Services expands partnership with the world’s open source learning platform to Cyprus
WIDE Services - A Greek based eLearning provider - today announced the expansion of their partnership with Moodle to deliver innovative and best practice online learning solutions in Cyprus.
With continued and increasing demand for advanced solutions worldwide, Moodle’s open source, cost-effective, and flexible software is proving to be the learning platform of choice for many schools, higher education institutions, and workplaces.
This is reflected in WIDE Services’ business strategy to expand, advance and apply the Moodle e-learning experience to existing and new customers in the Cyprian market.
Yiannis Arapoglou, CEO of WIDE Services, explained the company’s move to provide Moodle eLearning services to the Cyprian market as a natural progression, considering the popular use of the learning platform within Greece and surrounding areas.
“Our expansion with Moodle’s Partnership program in Cyprus will certainly enhance and establish our presence even more in the eLearning market,” said Yiannis.
“Cyprus and Greece are very close, geographically, economically and socially, and we have several clients in that territory already, interested and working with the Moodle learning platform,”
“So it was only a matter of time for us to invest in expanding our services into Cyprus and creating stronger relationships in the region.’
“We are looking forward to working with Moodle to continue introducing new, creative and efficient ways of using the learning platform for training, education, professional development and many more solutions, for all our clients.”
