The Mid-Atlantic Carpenters’ Training Centers (MACTC) conducts carpentry training programs in Maryland, Virginia and District of Columbia. MACTC offers a four-year apprenticeship program that prepares students to be highly qualified carpenters. They also offer Extended Learning classes for carpenters to further develop their skills.
MACTC came to Corporate Zen with a need to add an online classroom system to their school. Corporate Zen built this online classroom by using the Moodle Open Source Course Management system. This system connects with an external database to organize students, teachers, courses, assignments and grades.
Corporate Zen is also deploying a mobile app that allows students to see news about the school and review their grades. There is also a separate portion of the app for contractors to log in and review student-carpenter credentials before they hire them for a job.
