INDIANAPOLIS — Aug. 25, 2021 — Open LMS, a leading provider of corporate training solutions through its powerful open-source learning management systems, today announced a partnership agreement with Mediamaisteri Oy, a Moodle™-based EdTech services firm based in Finland. Mediamaisteri Oy has specialized in eLearning and human resources development since 2000, operating in the Nordic region, serving educational institutions, corporations, public offices, and associations. While Mediamaisteri Oy offers its own Moodle™-based LMS, it sought to partner with a commercial open-source LMS leader that provides additional features to serve its corporate customers.
“Open LMS WORK was selected for this need. What is important to us in a partnership is the product’s features and the right kind of operating culture. The Open LMS team can offer us both of these,” said Mikko Toriseva, CEO of Mediamaisteri Oy. “Presently, we are particularly interested in offering Open LMS WORK to all Nordic countries and see this partnership as an excellent opportunity to take the first steps towards an international market.”
The partnership will enable two EdTech powerhouses to join forces to deliver world-class eLearning solutions through their combined deep understanding of customer needs, bringing a significant boost to the Finnish and Nordic markets.
“Open source has always been a dominant force in the Nordics, especially Moodle™. We’ve known Mediamaisteri for years, and highly admire their work and the fact that they place just as much emphasis on great customer experience as we do. We’re excited to have them on our team,” said Phill Miller, Managing Director at Open LMS.
As both organizations are committed to bringing customer value in every contact, the new partners expect seamless cooperation and a high-quality customer experience.
“Open LMS’ comprehensive knowledge of corporate sector LMS requirements combined with our understanding and vast experience of the Finnish digital learning landscape is an unparalleled match,” said Ville Koiviola, Sales Director at Mediamaisteri Oy.
