Choose a product that lets you get to work on day one

When you work with Moodle LMS, you need to hire developers and set up a server, domain, and modules. This process could take up to an entire month.

With AcademyOcean, you can launch your educational platform the same day you sign up for our service, with no extra payments.
You can use Moodle for free, but you'll have to pay for server rental and for the technicians who will be responsible for server stability. And even if you pay for Moodle, you'll have to pay an additional fee if you want tech support.

At AcademyOcean, we handle all things technical ourselves. Additionally, you can get help from our tech-support team at any time for free.

Get a fair price, no upcharges

Moodle LMS (sometimes called just Moodle) is a large and complex system made for all sorts of clients: schools, universities, original course creators, information businesses, and other types of businesses.

AcademyOcean is tailored specifically to the needs of businesses, with the features and tools that companies need.

Use a product that was created for you

According to user ratings on G2Crowd, a global resource for software ratings, Moodle has an overall rating of 3.9/5, an ease of use of 7.5/10, quality of support of 7.4/10, and ease of setup of 7.1/10.

AcademyOcean outdoes Moodle in all categories, with a record-high overall ranking in the industry: 4.9/5. AO's ease of use is 9.8/10, quality of support is 9.8/10, and ease of setup is 9.5/10.

This means that when you choose AcademyOcean, you can get to work quickly, learn your way around the system with ease, and get fast responses to any support-related questions that may arise.

With Moodle LMS, it could take you an entire month to set up the server, hosting, domain, modules, etc. It could also end up demanding significantly more money and resources than it seems on the surface.

With AcademyOcean, you get a tool that's 100% ready to go within minutes, with no additional payments.

AcademyOcean has a number of unique features that Moodle doesn't have
This feature lets you adjust the content of a lesson to each learner. Two different learners may see the same course differently.

Adaptive (Dynamic) Content

This module lets you copy and multiply any of your content with only a couple clicks. Then, when you edit the original content, all copies will be automatically synced.

Synchronization Module

Not only can you create an unlimited number of courses, but you can also create an unlimited number of educational environments, or portals.

They can be invite-only or public, depending on your audience. You may wish to create separate portals for employee and client education, or for employees in different departments or cities.

Unlimited courses and educational environments (portals)

Use modern technology in your education

Custom Interface

In AcademyOcean, you can create unique interfaces for your educational portals in different languages. Add text — or even emoji — to your educational interface to set the tone.
This feature helps you personalize your content. Use predefined variables, such as name, country, and company, or create your own to make the learning experience more unique.

Personalization

The Smart Teams feature

Once a learner has completed all the courses in their current team, they will be switched to another team.

With this feature, you can construct complete and personal learning paths for each of your students.

Enough learners, no matter which plan you choose

When we created our pricing plans, we didn't want you to have to choose whether or not to educate certain potential learners.

Educate them all! Each plan contains 1,000 spots by default. You can always add more as needed.

We want as many employees of your company as possible to be able to use AcademyOcean to work effectively and improve their knowledge and skills.
