eThink Education

United States, Baltimore
To empower organizations to maximize their learning initiatives.
eThink is a high-touch, high-quality eLearning provider. We offer a world-class, fully-managed eLearning solution for the open-source Moodle and Totara Learning Management Systems. Managed by experts, eThink's total LMS solution provides a dynamic and customizable platform to meet specific institutional and organizational needs.

Here at eThink, we understand the importance of being able to rely on your provider for great support, fast service, and all forms of eLearning help and advice. When we push a same-day fix in response to a service ticket, run design sprints with other software vendors to ensure your products work together seamlessly, or achieve a 60-minute turnaround time for a thoughtful, human response to each support inquiry, that's not "going above and beyond." That's simply what we do and who we are, every single day.
