Learning Catalogue

The Learning Catalogue, also known as ‘Catalogue’, is a new enhancement that is a complete revamp of the course browse and search functionality in Moodle Workplace. It transforms the course discovery experience, ensuring convenience and individualised upskilling, and providing easier access to learning materials.

Learning catalogue allows admins to configure which fields should be displayed and in which order. It also allows for the configuration of the filters.
