After an agreement that helped it expand in the U.S. last year, eThink Education is moving into the Caribbean and Nigeria.

The Betamore-based edtech company provides hosting and services for Moodle, an open-source education platform. The company recently became a certified Moodle partner for the two international areas. eThink is the first and only company with that status in those regions.

“It’s a big step forward,” said CEO Brian Carlson.

Moodle is a platform that helps schools, colleges and even companies organize learning materials online.

“Where we come in as a provider of services is we’re bringing them a number of different strategies as well as technology to help them radically expand the footprint of how they’re using a digital learning platform to make learning more efficient,” Carlson said.

The company identified the two regions for growth, and partnership status was officially reviewed and granted by Moodle’s headquarters in Australia. In the U.S., most schools already have a learning management system. The adoption is not as wide in the Caribbean and Nigeria, Carlson said.

In the Caribbean, eThink is seeking to help colleges more easily share course materials and collaborate through a learning network.

Over the last six months, Carlson said the company is also seeing growth with corporate clients. Companies seek to use Moodle when organizing onboarding of employees, as well as ongoing training.

The bootstrapped company has 24 employees, with many working at Betamore and others remotely. The company was founded by Carlson and Cheryl Patsavos in 2008, and has seen significant growth over the last three years.
