New theme

Workplace 4.0 new theme brings all UX improvements from Moodle LMS 4.0: the new navigation, footer and styles.


Login page

Login page has been redesigned in line with Moodle LMS.


Workplace Launcher

Workplace launcher is now more scalable and now it is possible for plugins to add their own items.


Admin pages

All workplace admin pages have new look with more actions available from inside the individual entities.

New dashboard page

By combining two new blocks ('In-progress courses' and 'New available courses'), the new dashboard page will guide users through their learning journey, showing which courses are in progress and which courses need to be started next. The dashboard is still fully customisable, so all blocks are still available if needed.


'In-progress courses' block

This block shows all courses the learner is enrolled on and needs to be completed.


'New available courses' block

This block shows all courses that are available for the learner, so they can start working on them right away!

New learner journey

The process of navigating through courses and programs is polished to the max! Learners have a clearer understanding of their learning path and what is required from them at each step.


My Courses page

New redesigned and extended 'My Courses' page in LMS 4.0 to include programs and certifications as well.


New Program page

Programs and sets have their own independent pages now. This makes the process much easier to understand for learners.


Program cover page

Learners can now see what a program is about before accessing it. Later on, this information is available in the 'Information' tab.


Course cover page

Similar to programs, courses now have their own cover page. This page shows relevant information about the course to the learner before accessing it, and it’s available in the 'Information' tab.

Custom pages

This new feature allows site administrators to create pages for different audiences and customise them using the same blocks available for dashboard customisation.


Create pages for different audiences

It's easy to set up a custom page using positions and departments from the 'Organisation structure' feature (exclusive for Moodle Workplace).


Global and Tenant-only pages

Admins can create custom pages at a site level or for a tenant only.


Easy to customise

Custom pages are editable in real time, and all changes are immediately visible to their audience. All blocks available in the dashboard are available for custom pages.


Reports for everyone

Combine this feature with 'Report' blocks (exclusive for Moodle Workplace) to create pages full or relevant reports.

New 'My teams' page

This is a 'Custom page' (see above) found in Moodle Workplace out of the box! It contains the new 'My team' block, designed so managers and team leaders can easily keep track of their teammate's learning process.


'Team overview' block

The 'Team overview' block displays all teammates of managers or department leads and their current learning progress.


Full reports

Managers and department leads can check full reports on their teammates learning with the new 'Certification', 'Program' and 'Course progress' reports.
