An e-learning managed service at its best

by Laura Hill

Our background 

At Catalyst we collaborate closely with our partners, absorbing fresh and innovative approaches to digital learning. We have significant knowledge and experience from our 20 years of operation in the higher education space. We offer a fully managed e-learning solution for higher education institutions. 

Catalyst is a premium partner for Moodle. A partnership with ourselves benefits your organisation internally and externally. Our honed skills and additional services help enhance efficiency and improve your staff productivity. 

Drive learner performance and engagement

We help customers drive learner engagement and performance. Should website traffic be in excess of optimum levels, Catalyst can provide optimal system performance and that crucial security for all your data. Our Moodle experts are always here to boost your current support system and resolve any e-learning challenges. Our engineers and support teamwork daily with institutions like yours, drawing upon a vast solution based library. We will resolve any challenges rapidly with tried and tested models to save you valuable time and money. 

At Catalyst we are working towards facilitating our partners' requirements every step of the way as they rapidly try to move traditional face to face learning to a purely online experience. We are using the full depth and wealth of experience across our global operation of 350+ staff, along with the collective knowledge available in our many hundreds of education sector partners. 

We are continually examining how online learning systems need to adapt rapidly and accurately to the technical and pedagogical challenges occurring on a daily basis, across our current and potential client base. 

We understand that institutions will be looking to maximise their flexibility and individual control of online learning, whilst combining the stimulus of face to face interaction on campus.

Catalyst understands how teaching staff have had to adjust, to what is currently the only method available for teaching and learning. We have therefore dedicated learning technologists and the expertise on hand, to help prepare institutions and their teaching staff. 

Our close and on-going partnerships promote and support all the possibilities of hybrid teaching and learning. A-synchronous learning has shown to have a positive effect on engagement. We can help with customisations to the platforms, or to the training and consulting on behalf of the teaching stakeholders. In this way we are fully supporting a personalised and engaging learner journey. 

Catalyst Cloud on-shore hosting

Having a robust and resilient platform, particularly during peak periods of access, ensures confidence in that platform. It is essential for all institutions to have enough resources provisioned to run their platform.

Catalyst Cloud is cost-efficient, as wastage is considered and minimised at all times. Scaling up and maxmising uptime, storage and resources allows you to expand in line with the student body, without downtime or disruption. Catalyst will help you make sure your investment continues to deliver in the future. We can plan your migration strategy, provide full planning and road mapping, and then manage and undertake your migration.

Website traffic

The current results can clearly speak for themselves with our partners UCL, who are now supporting 48,000 active students upon the largest Moodle instance in the UK in terms of traffic. The university was receiving 700,000 page views a day, prior to Covid and since moving to Cloud is now frequently receiving 1.5 million page views a day. 
 

At Catalyst we continuously strive to support each institution's digital strategy, safeguard their brand and reputation and ensure student expectations and outcomes are consistently met.
