In my previous blog Administrator Level Customizations possible in Moodle-Part 1, we have seen some features that can be customized to meet the organizations specific training workflow standards and make sure that the training is effective.
We will now look at some more features at the Administrator level.
1. Setting up training events in calendar
Administrators can create separate user personal events and site events making it easier for users to make a note of the events. All the scheduled webinars/classroom training events will be displayed in users’ calendars and they can just click on the event name to send a request for registering to the events.
2. Moderation of forum/discussion area
Administrators and Trainers can create new discussion forums, edit discussions, and delete discussions. They can also reply to the discussion by the moderator’s name.
If any updates or comments are posted in the discussion, an automated email will be sent to the moderator as well as to all the subscribed users.
3. Sending an email to a user group
Administrators can send an email to individual users or also to a group. They can set the filters to select the user. They can also design email message boxes using an easy text editor.
4. Building and running reports
Moodle already has some standard reports. However, we can develop customized reports according to specific requirements.
5. Certificate tracking and expiry notification
The Administrator can view the list of certificates issued (with received and expiry dates), whenever needed and can export the list to an Excel sheet for evaluation purposes. He can also set a unique certificate code to the certificate. An automated notification will be sent to the administrator and the users on certificate expiry.
6. Managing payment for courses
As we know, Training Managers/Administrators can host the courses on the LMS and sell the courses by charging a price for them. The Administrator/Training Manager can have the third-party payment channels within their LMS and manage the complete payment process via Moodle LMS.
Here are some customizations that can help Administrators in managing the payment for courses.
- Instant LMS Enrollment
- Discount Coupon Codes
- Bundled Products (Multiple Courses Enrollment)
- Multi-seat Discounts
- Multi-seat License Management
- Multiple Credit Card Gateway Integrations
- Invoice (Delayed) Payment Methods
- Customizable Registration Fields (which pass to Moodle)
- Affiliated Marketing Integrations
- Payment through Local Currency
- Process of Receiving Access Codes & Vouchers
These are the list of features that I could compile. I hope you found the blog useful. Do share if you wish to share or add to the customizations list.

We spend a lot of time, effort, and money in developing an e-learning course. But if the learner, who is taking the course, is bored and simply waits for the course to get completed or keeps clicking the Next button in order to skip the slides, then all our efforts are in vain, and this is quite disappointing for us as well. So, how can we make our e-learning courses interesting? How can we help the learners to stay interested in the course from the start till the end?
Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs) – the hottest trend in the e-learning world. The use of RLOs has grown considerably in the last few years because they enable companies to reuse and repurpose learning content.

In this blog, I will take you through how the Agile way of e-learning Project Management helped us in streamlining our projects.
In the past years, we have been following the ADDIE model in planning and developing e-learning projects. The success rate of the projects was below 60%.This was an indication of the fact that the remaining 40% of projects were still not closing on time, had higher defects leading to extensive rework, and recorded low customer satisfaction with less ROI to our organization. We found that the main reason for this situation was that customers’ requirements were not properly understood at the initial stage of the project.
Recently, we were working on a course related to crisis management; how to report and whom to report when a crisis (incident) occurs in an organization.
Earlier employees would simply send an email about the incident and be done with it. The objective of this course is to tell learners to use the tool to file incidents and how it should be done.
Do you know who won the first prize in Asia’s got Talent last year? It was a group from Philippines who call themselves El Gamma Penumbra. They are an all-male, shadow play group. Well, I had never heard of them until someone forwarded a video of their performance through WhatsApp. Wow, what a performance! I will share the video in a while and you must see it to believe it! There is a lot we can learn from them as we develop e-learning or online courses.
The job of a pharmaceutical sales representative is quite challenging. Often, they need to convince doctors, who are more knowledgeable about diseases and medicines than themselves, to prescribe their firms’ products.
