Whistling Woods is an excellent venture providing full media and film production training for the industry most obviously the local Bollywood scene. I have done some good work with Chaityana CC to develop a Moodle solution for their student group which numbers about 400. I discussed the strategic approach to e-learning with John Lee Dean of WWI and our Principal Michele Sutton OBE, from this it became clear that further joint ventures might be possible. For instance Baljit Panesar and Trevor Griffiths from our Arts and Creative Media department are working on a student exchange programme.

After a very interesting tour of the facilities and some lunch we sat down and talked about the best way to deploy the solutions. The staff here at WWI used the Mac version and apart from some small LDAP issues which were soon overcome, the setting up of Moodle was pretty much hassle-free.

I look forward to seeing their progress in the coming months.
