Using Moodle allows lots of inexpensive hosting options.
Some districts host their DL Moodle themselves, while others prefer a separate hosting service. The main reason for choosing a separate hosting service is that keeping a server running 24/7/365 can sometimes be impractical for a school district (especially during holidays and weekends). Professional hosting companies, on the other hand, find efficient ways to keep things running 24/7/365 (it's their specialty).
If you choose to use a hosting service, we can recommend the following:
- 2StoryRobot is the development company behind SMS2.
- Thus, they host the SMS2 for many districts already.
- Adding Moodle hosting was a natural evolution.
- Pricing can be found here.
- KnowPlace is an official Moodle Partner who uses the most cost efficient servers available.
- A "you host & we support" option is available.
