National Centre for e-Learning and Distance Learning

The National Center for e-Learning and Distance Learning (NCeL) is a leader, supervisor, and supporter of e-Learning at the higher education level in Saudi Arabia.

In 2013, Catalyst developed and launched an eLearning platform in Saudi Arabia targeting 2 million users.

The Moodle-based system was developed in partnership with Saudi Arabian NCeL, and the scale of the project proved a unique technical challenge.

This project was a great opportunity to showcase our ability to build a system at this scale. We are thrilled that open source software is being selected for big, complex projects like this and is proving so well suited to the job.

We were also fortunate to be able to work with a great team from NCeL who developed the quality training materials for the site.

Among many competitors, we were lucky enough to choose Catalyst. Although they are located thousands of miles away, we worked as one team and felt as if we were in the same building.
