How you can create multiple tenants on one Moodle Workplace platform

October 4, 2019

In this series of videos and blog posts, we will be taking a look at Moodle Workplace’s brand new features, and explaining the benefits these will bring for Workplace learning. In this instalment, we will be taking a look at the Multi-Tenancy feature.

It’s with no ease we make this statement, but perhaps the greatest tool in Moodle Workplace is the introduction of its multi-tenancy feature. Very simply put, Moodle Workplace allows you to easily create multiple different tenants within your one Workplace installation.

The ability to create multi-tenancy platforms isn’t something new for Titus, and we have been doing this for clients using Moodle Core for some time now. From large education institutions that have multiple campuses through to companies that require departments to have access to their own platform, we have been able to meet these requirements. But the advancement with Moodle Workplace is through the ease in which new tenants can be created.

Using Moodle Core, the process worked like this: We would create an independent Moodle site for each of the different tenants which would sit below a master Moodle site. Each tenant site would have their own independent Moodle data directory and database, and we would be able to create unique themes for each of the tenant sites (or they could use the master’s sites design). Content from within each of these tenant sites could be shared between each site, or content could be set to only be accessible by the individual tenant. Finally, the master site would have all the required plugins installed which would be distributed to the tenant sites, as well as a shared codebase.

The process within Moodle Workplace is entirely different. From the Workplace launcher, the site administrator can click tenants, from this dashboard they then click the plus button to add a new tenant and then choose the course which you want to transfer to your new tenant. Once the tenant is created, the first user will be added and will be set up as the tenant admin. Finally, the logos, colours, and CSS can be easily edited for each individual tenant.

An incredibly simpler and smoother process than what was necessary previously. To see this process in action, watch the below video:
