Dulwich College International (DCI) is one of the most prestigious international school groups worldwide.
DCI has seven international colleges and two international high schools spread throughout China, Myanmar, Singapore and South Korea, and the network currently provides for over 6,000 students across its nine sites.
Dulwich College were already using Moodle at a number of sites but felt that they were not using Moodle to its full potential, and were keen to better integrate the platform with their management information system, Capita SIMS.
Dulwich chose to work with Certified Moodle Partner Titus Learning to develop a tailor-made Moodle solution with SIMS integration to equally fit the needs of teachers, students, and parents. This would be implemented first at Dulwich College Suzhou, and subsequently at Dulwich College Beijing in the initial phase.
Titus worked on the following key elements of the bespoke Moodle installation:
Designed to fit Dulwich College’s needs perfectly, the new theme improves on the standard one in several areas:
“The Titus team has truly partnered with us through an ongoing customization of Moodle to create a tool that has become part of our everyday practice.” – Staci Kalmbacher, Director of Educational Technology and Professional Learning
Moodle – SIMS integration
Integration between Moodle and SIMS gives teachers, students and parents a single interface to share reports, documents and information on a range of devices, allowing Dulwich College to:
With the new systems in place and bespoke training sessions completed for staff, Dulwich College signed up to our made-to-measure support service at each of the sites using Moodle.
Most importantly though, Dulwich College have a named member of our support team on hand to provide proactive advice on improving and adapting the platform. This ensures users remain engaged, and that Moodle continues to develop as the school’s needs change over time.
“Titus Learning provided the tools and communication we needed to make Moodle a true middleware platform to better serve our teachers, students and parents.” – Staci Kalmbacher, Director of Educational Technology and Professional Learning
Looking to the future
Titus Learning subsequently worked with a third member of the network, Dulwich College Shanghai, on integrating Moodle and SIMS.
Moving forwards, we are working closely with the central Dulwich College team on a custom development project, which will be utilised across each of the nine sites and is due to be unveiled in early 2018.
