We are Moodle experts. Let us help you manage your virtual learning system and take the strain off your team and systems.
Moodle is an open-source web based virtual learning platform used by over 67 million users in 235 countries worldwide. Moodle allows teachers to create dynamic online courses and upload content for their students. They can easily create assignments and quizzes and it offers a range of collaboration tools such as forums, wikis and surveys.
Moodle has a large and active community surrounding it with many third party plugins available, and it’s open-source so there is no vendor lock-in.
We offer a full range of services including support, tailored consultancy and training packages as well as customised theme design and hosting. We specialise in on-site managed deployments where we deploy and manage your Moodle on your premises. It runs on your hardware on your network but we’re responsible for managing it.
Installation is quick and simple, we can migrate your data from an existing system and upgrade you to the latest version of Moodle.
Onsite Managed VLE
We recommend an on-site installation when the majority of your Moodle activity comes from users at the same site or you want to integrate with local services. This is likely to be the case for most schools and colleges.
- Faster page loads and video streaming
- Works if your internet connection fails
Your data on your
hardware at your site
By hosting on-site you get all the benefits that a local network connection brings. This includes pages loading substantially faster and faster video streaming. It reduces traffic on your internet connection and if your internet connection fails you can still access Moodle.
Integrating with other local services is easy, which makes Moodle more effective. For example, you can integrate with Active Directory to use your network password to login to Moodle, make network file shares accessible through Moodle, and expose student MIS data using Edulink for Moodle.
Our on-site managed Moodle service has been refined by working with hundreds of deployments since 2007. This experience has meant that we have found many quirks and configuration subtleties and have built solutions directly into the hosting platform.
By having our experts manage your Moodle you get a high quality, well configured, professionally managed Moodle server without having to become a Moodle administration expert. You avoid the ongoing cost of having to regularly administer the installation, and you gain all the added benefits and features of our management infrastructure.

Promoting collaboration with Managed VLE
Jeanette O’Connor shares how Moodle has helped capture staff expertise and promoted collaboration to improve teaching at UCTC.
In terms of choosing Overnet Data to support Moodle, we found that their help-desk support was absolutely fantastic and quick, and their knowledge on it has been absolutely brilliant, and when there have been problems, they had them resolved really, really quickly and we’ve been informed really clearly of what happened and why it happened and how we can resolve it in the future. This is obviously very comforting going forward, with whatever potential problems that might arise.
We chose Overnet Data to support Moodle because first of all, it was the speedy response compared to their competitors. Once we’d spoken to the team, we realised that they’re on a continuous development trajectory and were open to discussions around the functionality and incorporating this into the development timeline. Communication from Overnet Data has been absolutely stunning really. They’ve been a fantastic organisation to work with.
