Pukunui helps UniKL migrate Moodle to a new server.

Back in 2015, UniKL – one of the foremost universities in Malaysia – had 13 different installations of Moodle. These ran across campuses in the east and west parts of the country. Although UniKL students had access to a growing library of elearning courses provided by the university, the student experience was different depending on which campus they attended. 

UniKL commissioned Pukunui to migrate Moodle to a new server, and combine all the elearning content onto one site to create a more unified experience for students and lecturers. 

Step 1: Migrate Moodle

Our aim was to build an infrastructure that would offer consistency of content and branding. It would create a more dynamic user experience. Lecturers and students from different campuses could interact with each other. 

The Moodle migration was complete within 4 weeks;

13 Moodle sites upgraded and merged into one

15,000+ elearning courses recreated including existing content

50,000+ user accounts enrolled on courses and ready for learning

Zero loss of data

We began the project by automating the migration process to provide a seamless transition to the brand-new site. Our developers initially created the new Moodle site on a secure data centre in Malaysia. Later, this was moved to our Singapore infrastructure.

Step 2: LMS Integration with SMS

We then developed several integrations to streamline course delivery and assessment. Once completed, UniKL had an elearning system that has vastly improved its online education offering in the following ways:

  1. Lecturers are able to share resources with others across the university. They could also tailor and personalise elearning content for their own groups.
  2. Automation of course creation and administration. Lecturers simply upload their materials onto the site and Moodle integrates the material seamlessly with the delivery platform. The integration also links it with relevant student groups.
  3. The system communicates directly with the university’s Student Management System. This enables weighted grades and other student assessment information to be automatically added to individual student transcripts.
  4. Students and lecturers from different campuses can interact with each other. They can conveniently share the learning experience in a way that was not possible beforehand. 

In all, the new UniKL Moodle site has better functionality and is much easier to manage than the previous model. Not only is the online education process much more streamlined, but the new site has also saved on paperwork. This provides hours of valuable time that is better spent on actually educating the students. 

The project was such a success that UniKL commissioned Pukunui to work with them on a long-term basis, initially to provide elearning integration compatible with the university’s other systems.

Pukunui provided continual technical support after the initial work to migrate Moodle to a new server, which included backups and upgrades as well as further integration, depending on demand. The management at UniKL expressed their confidence in our services and are happy they now have an elearning system that benefits the whole university community. 

If your organisation would like to migrate Moodle to a new server, create an elearning platform using Moodle or simply streamline and unify existing content, contact Pukunui for a consultation.
