Create a personalized learning experience with Moodle Workplace

April 20, 2023 By Niamh Macdonald

With Moodle Workplace, organizations can create a personalized learning experience that meets the unique needs of their employees. Moodle Workplace is a flexible learning platform that you can customize to cater to your employees’ development goals. You can tailor Moodle Workplace to suit specific ‘Audiences’ within your organization, depending on their role. In this blog, we will discuss how you can leverage Moodle Workplace features to suit these audiences, ensuring your employees have easy access to all of their learning materials and can take ownership of their own development.

What are Audiences?

Moodle Audiences lets you target specific users based on their role or department within your organization. For example, if you want to provide training only to salespeople or managers, or even just those with specific skills or certifications, you can do so through Moodle Audiences.

Segmenting your Moodle Workplace users also allows you to choose specific groups of people to receive certain messages and actions, such as giving individuals in one department access to a report. This means that your employees will see the content most relevant to them, creating a personalized learning experience.

Tailor your content with custom pages

Moodle Workplace custom pages provide an effective way to customize content and tailor it to specific audiences. Whether it’s a new onboarding orientation or a compliance training, your organizations can create custom pages that are specifically designed to meet the needs of different groups of learners. There are two types of custom pages: global custom pages shared across all tenants that don’t require the Shared Space to be enabled, and tenant custom pages specific to a single tenant, selected on creation and which can’t be changed later.

By targeting content to specific audiences, organizations can ensure that their learners are engaged, motivated, and invested in the learning experience. Custom pages can include multimedia elements, interactive quizzes, and other engaging features that make the learning experience more immersive and effective.

Simple navigation with Moodle Workplace dashboards

Moodle Workplace dashboards can be customized to meet the needs of different audiences, providing a tailored experience for learners, instructors, and administrators. For learners, the dashboard can display progress on specific courses, upcoming assignments, and important deadlines.

Organizations can use the dashboard to monitor the progress of their employees, identify areas where an individual may be struggling, and provide additional support as needed.

Administrators can use the dashboard to get an overview of the performance of the entire organization, including course completion rates and learner engagement.

The handling of the Dashboard tab is identical to the standard Moodle dashboard. However, Moodle Workplace provides some extra blocks that can be placed on the dashboard’s centre or in the side drawer, such as a ‘New available courses’ block and a ‘Team overview’ block.

With Moodle Workplace dashboards, organizations can provide a personalized experience for each audience, ensuring that everyone has access to the information they need to be successful. The customizable nature of the dashboards allows you  to meet the requirements of each audience, resulting in a more effective and engaging learning experience.

Save time and effort with dynamic rules

Moodle Workplace dynamic rules allow organizations to create rules that automatically assign learners to specific courses or groups based on their profile information.

Dynamic rules can be assigned to a specific audience, allocating learning, and granting competencies to individuals or teams. This feature enables organizations to provide a personalized learning experience for learners, ensuring that they are accessing the content that is most relevant to their needs.

Dynamic rules can be based on a wide range of criteria, including job function, department, location, and skill level. By automating this process, organizations can save time and effort, while also ensuring that learners are undertaking the training that suits their needs.

Learn more about how to use the dynamic rules feature in our guide to dynamic rules.
