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

We are delighted to announce the introduction of our starter support and Moodle staging sites, now available with our standard Moodle hosting plans.

In addition to our hosting features that include daily server backups, 24/7/365 security and SLA uptime guarantee, our starter support helps our clients with the implementation of their Moodle site and gives them the opportunity to ask initial queries or address any issues that may arise. This is beneficial for those starting out with Moodle through to those migrating their existing site from another supplier.

Additionally, the new staging site provides clients with a safe environment for them to test aspects of their site (such as configuration changes and version upgrades) before committing the changes to their live site.

Ray Lawrence, HowToMoodle’s director, comments; “We have developed our existing hosting service to ensure that we are doing what we can to help our clients get up and running quickly and in the right direction. Providing these extra features helps our clients form an overall picture of how their live site will look, with some additional support to ensure they get on the right track.

HowToMoodle offers a range of cost effective, flexible hosting options, from basic plans for those with a small number of learners and storage requirements, through to dedicated hosted solutions for larger organisations with more extensive requirements. There is also a Pilot plan* for evaluation and small scale pilots (clients can upgrade to a full plan at anytime).

Our hosted servers are located in an ISO 27001 secure environment in the UK, with 24/7/365 security, N+1 generators, and diverse fibre entry routes to ensure the security and uptime of our client’s sites.

As part of our managed hosting service, clients can also take advantage of our Moodle upgrade package, in which they benefit from regular upgrades to the latest stable Moodle version, all handled by the HowToMoodle team. The added benefit of receiving a fully managed hosted solution means that our clients can focus solely on their Moodle project with peace of mind that their site is in the right hands.

For more details on our standard or dedicated Moodle hosting services, just ask us.

*Starter support and staging sites are not available on the Pilot plan.

What is an LXP? A quick guide for L&D professionals

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.

OK, so here are the things made possible with an LXP:

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!).
