In addition to providing flexible and personalised training, we also offer a wide range of course options. Our courses cover everything from the basics of Moodle™, to more advanced topics such as using Moodle™ for e-learning and blended learning.

No matter what your learning objectives are, we have a course that can help you achieve them.

By the end of the course, attendees will be familiar with navigating the Moodle™ interface and will have created a “Sandbox” course using key tools.

Support and Resources

Another reason to attend our training sessions is the support and resources we provide to our learners. Our instructors are highly experienced and knowledgeable, and are always available to answer questions and provide guidance. In addition, we provide our learners with access to a wealth of online resources, including instructional videos, step-by-step guides, and more. These resources are designed to supplement the training sessions and provide learners with the support they need to succeed.

We have been using Pukunui to support our Moodle platform for the past three years. We recently approached Pukunui to assist with some integration issues we were having with our new enrolment system. Support was also required in making the Moodle platform more interactive for our students and to cut down the work for our trainers. Pukunui helped by explaining the benefits of a more interactive platform, they set up grader reports for our all our courses. Attached our students to each course and individual modules and assessments. The consultant worked throughout the day with two of my staff via Skype to iron out any glitches.

The team at Pukunui worked seamlessly with the enrolment system provider to ensure our organisation had the best solution to our issues with a very quick turnaround. The result was amazing. The students can now see what needs to be completed when they log on, they also have up to date information on assessments and can see what has been achieved and what has not. As a team we found the training and the experience a revelation on what Pukunui and the Moodle platform has to offer. Their staff were amazing, nothing was too much work or too much effort, thank you. We look forward to growing the platform to maximize the work of the team and our trainers.
