The new age virtual classroom by Vidya Mantra - CongreaCurrently the service is under functional stage but may contain bugs so it is not recommended to use on Production servers. However, acc. to Vidya Mantra – “If you participate and report bugs, not only you will make Congrea better but you will also get one year free subscription when we reach production quality.

The service is currently offered as Cloud service or if you want to host it on your own server, you can opt for the Commercial support package. To check out the trial version of Congrea and Moodle integration, please checkout this link.

So far I had not tested the service in depth, but I will keep you updated over the progress in upcoming posts.For more details about Congrea, check out the official website here –
