What is My Team?

My Team is a feature we created for eCreator’s Moodle theme, Learnbook, as a response to customer feedback lamenting the difficulty they had empowering managers within their organisation to monitor their team’s learning progress.

What can I do with My Team?

With ‘My Team’, managers can see the learning progress of their team members at a glance.

That means, they can log into Learnbook and with a single click, get a snapshot of the learning progress of everyone they manage, including a handy progress bar.

Managers can drill down further by clicking on a team member’s learning profile.

They’ll get visibility right down to the activity level and be able to send messages to members of their team  directly from the LMS.

How do I set it up?

My Team works through system context cohorts. For managers to get visibility, you’ll need to make them Cohort Managers.

Ok, great! How do I create system context cohorts?

You can create these cohorts in accordance with your organisation’s structure by going to:

Site administration > Users > Accounts > cohorts

1. Select the ‘Add new cohort’ tab.

2. Name your cohort.

3. Make sure your cohort is created within a system context by selecting the ‘System’ dropdown option in the Context field.

4. Create a Cohort ID (especially important if you’re going to add users to cohorts in bulk via CSV).
