A “one-stop-shop” for staff and parents at Green Oasis School

Introduction

Green Oasis School was founded in 2001 in Shenzhen, China and began following the National Curriculum for England in 2008. The school is made up of a range of nationalities, with the majority being Chinese nationals. The school’s vision is to ‘Educate, Nurture and Inspire Excellence’.

Titus Learning first met with the school’s Head of Secondary at the annual SEASIMS conference, who expressed an interest in the integration we had developed between Moodle and SIMS.

 

 

Problem

At the time Green Oasis had a basic Moodle in place, however they had reached a stage where they were keen to add integration with SIMS – the school’s management information software.

“Staff and students were already using a version of Moodle at the school, but it did not have the ability to synchronise with SIMS so would not be suitable for the needs of the school moving forward.

From the initial Skype conferences it was clear that Titus Learning were offering a professional product with a stylish, customised and user friendly interface.”

– Swati Joshi, Head of Computing/Moodle, Green Oasis School

Action

A detailed consultation followed to establish the key requirements for implementing a learning management system at the school, which included:

  • The ability to host the new LMS on site, both to improve performance and comply with Chinese restrictions on global Internet access.
  • Support and training for key staff members on using the platform to support teaching and learning, as well as the basic administration of the LMS.
  • Integration between the school’s SIMS software and the new LMS

Titus Learning proposed a managed Moodle, including a responsive custom theme designed to display across  range of devices and provide a simple, easy-to-navigate interface for inexperienced users. The platform would be hosted at the school, but managed remotely by the Titus team, removing the burden of applying security patches, updates or bug fixes from the busy administration staff in school.

This set up would also allow Titus Learning to monitor usage of the new Moodle and proactively advise the Green Oasis team on how the platform could be improved or utilised in new ways to ensure engagement with staff and students alike.

Once the platform was ready for launch, a senior member of the Titus Learning team travelled to Shenzen to provide detailed on-site training for all staff and administrators involved in the usage and upkeep of the new platform.

Results

The redesigned theme proved popular with users from the launch, with positive feedback on its clear layout, signposting of key features and ease of use.

“Titus Learning has provided an extremely good experience so far in terms of sorting issues within school and communicating with members from Titus. Titus Learning documents have helped the teachers understand Moodle better.

The customized look with tiles and custom colour theme is an asset to our Vision Mission statement. Working on mark sheets has been the best experience so far in terms of its availability online.”

– Swati Joshi, Head of Computing/Moodle, Green Oasis School

In addition, integration between the new Moodle and the school’s SIMS software has allowed the school to save time on routine administration such as updating user groups, share selected assessment, behavioral and registration data with students and parents and improve home-school communication.

Looking to the future

Post launch, Titus Learning and Green Oasis have maintained a close working relationship as the school develop their e-learning provision.

“In the future we are looking at developing our Staff Zone and Parent Zone so it becomes a “one-stop-shop” for what staff and parents need to check, and longer term the vision would be to look at going completely paperless in terms of our communication with parents.”

– Swati Joshi, Head of Computing/Moodle, Green Oasis School
