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

If you've visited our website or social channels today, you might think we've gone through a little transformation. But the truth is, we're staying exactly the same.

We've changed our name. But that's all we've changed.

Well, actually, we’ve already changed.  Back in January, we changed our legal name. And this month, we have brought that new name out into the big wide world.

Starting today (October 1st 2019), we leave our HowToMoodle name behind and become Hubken Group(But our friends can call us Hubken.)

"Why are you changing it?"

You know us as HowToMoodle. And we've been helping businesses with their eLearning journeys under that name for 15 years.

When we started back in 2004, that name was a perfect fit. We taught businesses how to Moodle.

Simple, right?

But since then, we've become so much more than just Moodle! We've partnered with Totara and started working with companies like Go1, IntelliBoard, and more. Today, we create tailored learning content and custom learning systems – and we even develop our own plugins.

So to be honest: a name like HowToMoodle just doesn't do us justice any more.
(It also didn't help when some people got us confused with Moodle themselves. We love those guys, but they're not us!)

And after 15 years of working in this industry, it just feels right to have a change.

We've been legally registered with our new name for almost a year now. And since we're always talking about how businesses need to embrace change, we'd feel silly if we resisted a positive change of our own.

 

"But what does it mean?"

We're not going to bore you with all the deliberations we went through when choosing a name.

If we're being honest, it's a name we made up for ourselves. But there's a little bit of logic behind it:

Ken means knowledge. It means understanding, cognizance, and mental perception. (Yes, we used a dictionary.)

And Hub means – well, a hub. You know what that means.

So when we deliver learning solutions to our clients, those solutions become the hub of their knowledge.

And for us, the name Hubken is the perfect fit for everything we do as a company.

 

"Does this mean you're changing?"

Absolutely not.

We haven't been bought out. We're not going through a radical transformation. We're the same legal entity we've been for the past 15 years.

We aren't changing what we do. And we aren't changing how we help businesses like yours.

(You can see exactly what won't be changing by taking a look at What We Do.)

We're still the same helpful team of knowledgeable people, giving you the same expert service and the same support you need to help your business grow and succeed.

We've just had a little makeover. And Hubken is the next evolution of who we are!

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!).
