Partnership to Deliver Edtech across China and AP

Melbourne (AU), April 2019 - eCreators has entered into a strategic partnership with Alibaba Cloud Australia and New Zealand to deliver open source education technologies and eLearning content across China and AP.

eCreators, which offer online education content and LMS development services across the globe and has a strong presence in the Asia Pacific region, have signed a partnership agreement to strengthen their international offering with Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group.

eCreators can now offer enterprise and retail customers the complete Alibaba Cloud services portfolio and distribute its premier LMS offering, Learnbook, across the Asia Pacific region, as well as a range of open source products and an extensive array of third-party plugins from partner providers.

eCreators CEO, Dean Saunders said, "After speaking with Alibaba Cloud over the course of several months and bringing our technical staff up to speed with the comprehensive Alibaba Cloud technology stack, we’re very satisfied that this world-class offering will be taken up by many of our regional customers. Existing customers will have the choice to migrate to more localised infrastructure or stay on their existing arrangement".

Raymond Ma, General Manager of Australia and New Zealand for Alibaba Cloud said, "We are glad that through this partnership with eCreators, we can add even more value to our customers through eCreator’s expertise in instructional design, while enabling their organisational learning success." Through the partnership, Alibaba Cloud will assist eCreators in expanding their awareness and presence in the ASEAN market and provide the company with greater access to the China market.

For consumers across ASEAN, eCreators Moodle SAAS products will be available on a much wider scale and provide greater availability on the Alibaba Cloud console.
