Hi, I am Yiannis!

I am an e-Learning Specialist & an experienced adult trainer. I am also the Co-Founder and CEO of WIDE Services company (www.wideservices.gr), thee Moodle Certified Services Provider for Greece & Cyprus! I have worked in all places in a Software/E-learning services company with expertise in designing Gamified e-Learning courses. I have involved as a Project Manager, Sales, customer care, Training/Technical Manager, developer(,...) in hundreds of projects since 2006 when I started my career.
As Solution Architect I work with HR/Training managers to analyze their training needs & organize their LMS accordingly. I have worked with many large organizations & designed their e-Learning platforms to train thousands of users. Companies who trusted me are OPAP SA, Athens International Airport, Vodafone, Kotsovolos, Kleemann, Intralot,...
I have also participated in creating online courses for various topics & industries like induction, ISMS, product/services etc.

I usually act as an e-Learning Business Consultant. I enjoy to design solutions for small or large organizations & help them grow their ideas to e-Learning Businesses. My IT background helps me to design new solutions, thinking out of the box of Moodle, & make clever LMS systems, with automation which help companies to focus on their trainings instead of just administration the LMS.

I have received awards in international competitions & degrees in various topics (Innovation, entrepreneurship, edu games etc), & I act as Moodle Mentor-Assessor for Moodle Course Creator Certificate. That's why I think I have strong knowledge of Moodle!

Meanwhile, from 2011 I help with Moodle Translation in Greek & also I am one of the responsible compilers for the Moodle Pty Ltd videos on youtube channel.

I have completed my bachelor in University of Piraeus in Department of Digital Systems & afterwards received my MSC diploma in e-Learning from the same Dpt.
