Here is what others have had to say about Jon’s services:
“The Consultants Development Institute hired Jon Fila to guide development of its Moodle-based Learning Management System. Jon started with very meaningful trainings that were targeted to our level of knowledge. He built the initial framework for our System, making it much more straightforward and accurate for us do some of the additional work on our own. He was prompt and useful in his advice to us as we became more involved in development of the System. During the entire process, he was careful to show us what he did and why. I very highly recommend Jon for Moodle development services.”

Very flexible course, allowing us to work directly on what was relative to our programs. Great instructor! Thanks so much for the push! Jon was very understanding when we had areas we were not strong in and did not make us feel stupid. He was very encouraging when we did stuff correctly. Time went really fast.
I have to say I thought the class was great and that Jon did a good job as I am not so comp savvy. It was clear easy to understand and I learned a lot of Moodle I will be trying with my class soon after we return from winter break. Thanks Jon.
Hands on application, doing the activities directly related to area of interest, flexible, informative. Jon is great teacher and resource.
I appreciate the time, space and support Jon provided to explore the options available for teaching on Moodle — very hands on and a great way to explore, both from a technical perspective and a more conceptual perspective as well. It really helps to work on implementing online educational offerings together with someone who has already had solid experience doing so and can anticipate a lot of the work (including mental preparation as well as implementation) that we will need to put in. I also appreciate his openness and respect in working with learners, whatever their level of technical proficiency, as well as his enthusiasm and genuine passion for opening up this opportunity to as many people as possible. Thanks, Jon. Time well spent.
