COVID-19: Hubken is working as normal Get in touch today

Want useful tips for Moodle? 

We have a situation where we want to allow a facilitator (who is assigned to the Non-Editing Teacher role for the course) to be able to edit a label on the course page so that they can personalise their welcome message. However we don't want them to be able to have permission to be able to change any other aspect of the course design.

These are the steps:

1. Login as admin or another role that allows role assignment.

2. Create the label with the default welcome message, save and return to course.

3. Re-open the label.

4. Click the "Locally assigned roles" tab.

5. Click Teacher and assign the facilitator to that role.

The facilitator will now see the "Turn editing on" button and when in editing mode they will be able to edit the required label to personalise their welcome message. As the Teacher role was only assigned for the label they won't be able to adapt other resources or activities.

If you’re responsible for managing e-learning programmes you’ll know what a Learning Management System (LMS) is. If you’ve attended any learning fairs in recent years you may have seen the term LXP popping up.

It stands for Learning Experience Platform and represents a whole new range of possibilities to expand the way your audiences learn.

Open Badges: A simple way to improve learner engagement

For anyone managing e-learning programmes learner engagement is surely a key measure of success. You may have hundreds of people in different departments or teams but all of them are likely to appreciate recognition for their efforts. That’s where Open Badges come in.

Open Badges enable your learners to get verifiable proof for the knowledge, skills and achievements they have developed through your e-learning programme.

Engage your learners with gamification in Moodle

The term gamification has been around for years, but what is it? Simply, it’s about bringing elements from game design into a non-game context and there are good reasons to do so.

Many people who’ve been in the workforce for years will have got into gaming as children but even for the non-gamers amongst us introducing gamification into your Moodle LMS can make a big difference (and implementing it can be much easier than you think!).
