We’re taking a look at the biggest changes within Moodle Workplace 4, the latest major release from Moodle HQ.
Moodle Workplace 4.0 has been released to the Premium Moodle Partner network and includes a number of notable changes, as well as new functionality.
The headline change is the reimagined user interface which provides a simplified and streamlined user experience. The stripped back look and feel gives a great starting point for developing our own, unique edition of the platform, which will be exclusive to Titus customers.
Once ready, it’ll provide an unrivalled selection of customisation options, further UX enhancements, which when combined gives organisations the flexibility to inject their branding and make the platform their own.
We’re also working on enhancements to the way that tenant customisation works, which will be an industry-leading offering. Stay tuned for updates.
Another enhancement within Moodle Workplace 4 introduces two new blocks – “In-progress courses” and “New available courses”. Further, a new dashboard page gives users access to their learning with ease, with access to all their relevant programmes and courses within one, central location.
The dashboard remains fully customisable on a per tenant basis, which gives you the opportunity to create a truly personalised experience and retains the flexibility to shape the platform to your unique requirements.
Making life easier for learners is a central theme throughout the new version of Moodle Workplace. A new “My Courses” page provides a dedicated destination for learners to access their programs and courses.
On top of that, new course and program cover pages give course owners a space to showcase all the relevant information they need to in order to better inform learners, this can include due dates, content length and an overview of what to expect within the course/programme.
Another notable addition is the ability to create custom pages for bespoke audiences.
This holds various opportunities for customers – pages can be restricted and allocated via the organisational structure which means you can create unique, role specific pages.
One use case of this is to provide enhanced reporting at a managerial level, combining custom pages with the reports block will create an easily accessible reporting dashboards that can display any form of data available within the report builder. This page could then only be displayed to the relevant stakeholders.
The ‘Team overview’ block displays all teammates of managers or department leads and their current learning progress.
Managers and department leads can check full reports on their teammates learning with the new ‘Certification’, ‘Program’ and ‘Course progress’ reports. It’s also easier to see at a glance if anybody in the team has any overdue learning thanks to a new UX feature – the ‘Overdue’ alert.
Moodle Workplace 4 includes other enhancements, such as improvements to the report builder, multi-tenant customisation on the Branded Mobile App and various others.
As for what the release means for current and future Titus customers, our Tech team are working on a unique theme which enhances the UX of the platform further, and our wider team are getting to grips with the use cases that the new functionality can help streamline.
