About The Webinar

In the last seven months, Open LMS has been busy recreating who we are and who we want to be, making crucial investments in creating capacity for innovation around Moodle. We joined teams with eCreators in October 2020 and eThink Education in December 2020. We're well on our way to building the best Moodle team in the world, and we want to tell you all about it.

Join us to hear from the new Open LMS leadership team - Phill Miller, Brian Carlson, Cheryl Patsavos, and Dean Saunders - on what this means for Moodle and Totara clients as well as the rest of the eLearning community.

During the session, we’ll explore: 

  • The new Open LMS - past, present, and future
  • The advantages of this partnership including: scale to innovate, global reach, an extended portfolio of products and service, and industry-leading LMS support
  • Trends we're seeing in the market and how our company is going to be able to help uniquely address those
  • What's to come!

The New Open LMS: Joining Teams to Provide World-Class LMS Support

Meet the Speakers

Dean Saunders
VP of Product Development
Open LMS

A founder of eCreators and Vice President of Product Development at Open LMS, Dean is regarded as one of the leaders in EdTech space. With over 20 years experience in an eLearning industry, he wants to create a difference through the belief that learning should be creative, innovative and most importantly, enjoyable.

Phill Miller
Managing Director
Open LMS

Phill Miller, Managing Director of Open LMS, is a long time leader in EdTech.  With nearly 20 years of EdTech experience, Phill started his journey at a startup called ANGEL Learning, and he's loved (almost) every minute of it.  Time at Blackboard, Moodlerooms (now Open LMS), Oxygen Education, and stints on the boards of IMS Global and ClearScholar give him a unique perspective on the market.  Father of four kids, he has a vested interest in online learning.  When he's not at his macbook keyboard, he's probably trying to waterski (poorly) or reading a book about princesses or Paw Patrol with his kids.
