    “Very pleased with the service – it was great to work with a team with specific expertise in what we were trying to do (rather than us making it up in-house!), and the output was certainly better and more cost-effective than what we would have achieved ourselves.”

  • Matt-Bramble-Leverage-Lab
    “I was incredibly impressed. The Plume team knows their stuff, but most importantly they know how to listen to a client’s needs and translate those needs into an actionable plan.”

Frequently asked
questions

Do you work with international clients?
Yes, we have a number of international clients and are able to serve users anywhere in the world.
Is Open edX right for us?
Maybe yes, maybe no. Part of our process involves understanding your goals and building a scope of requirements together. Following that process, we sometimes find that there’s a more appropriate approach that’ll allow us to deliver a better end-product, so we’ll make those recommendations when we have the full picture. We’ll never move forward with an LMS framework that isn’t 100% right for you.
Can you integrate with LTIs?
Yes, we can integrate remote learning tools into your courses.
Can you match the design of our existing websites?
With Open edX, you can either reskin the default templates, or you can build a completely unique front-end for greater design flexibility. Either way, we’ll always look to your existing materials as the basis of our design process so that your users can seamlessly navigate between products without feeling disoriented.
Can you build a mobile app?
Yes. We can create front-ends for mobile, desktop or browser access.
