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

Unless you've hidden away hibernating over the cold Winter months you'll know that GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will take effect on 25th May 2018.

And your Moodle site must be compliant.

You may have heard in our recent Podcast that Moodle has released new features to make GDPR compliance possible – but to take advantage of them you’ll need to be using the latest versions of Moodle 3.3 or 3.4 (or 3.5 when it’s released).

 

But it's not all about GDPR!

Yes, you read that right. As important as GDPR is, upgrading your Moodle site to a later version has many other benefits that you simply would not want to miss out on!
Why Upgarde Moodle Site

 

1. Make your site more secure:

Moodle version upgrades include patches for potential security vulnerabilities. For Moodle, the underlying processes for dealing with potential issues are robust, and this means the risks are reduced.

 

2. Boost User Experience:

Current Moodle versions offer more opportunities to make your site look fantastic so that you attract and maintain a higher level of engagement than ever before.

 

3. Features, Features, Features!

Aside from the GDPR compliance that we've mentioned, by upgrading your Moodle version you get to experience other new and improved features that can save you hours of workarounds, improve managerial tracking or increase learner engagement.

 

4. Supported Version:

Some older Moodle versions are simply no longer supported. This means that there are no more security reviews or bug fixes by Moodle's core developers. You can see if your version is supported by Moodle HQ here.

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!).
