Use WordPress as your content authoring tool for your VLE/LMS.
Moodle, Blackboard, Canvas – all excellent VLEs – but horrible, clunky and dis-engaging content presentation.
With DigiLearn, you get the best of both worlds; your VLE/CMS for enrolment and user management; and a beautiful WordPress CMS to author your learning content.
In summary – you use your VLE/LMS for VLE/LMS functions, but you outsource your course/content presentation/authoring to DigiLearn.
Beautiful course front and inner pages – WordPress standard
(because it IS WordPress)
Build in WordPress using drag and drop and our customised learning widgets. Building great content was never as easy!
With your content in an ‘open standards’ architecture – you can in future, swap to another VLE/LMS or integrate an LRS with ease. DigiLearn can work seamlessly with your next VLE/LMS.
Thus, you avoid the risk of having to rebuild all your courses if/when you move VLE/CMS.
If it’s not engaging – learners get bored.
And let’s face it – some of our content may not be the most engaging! However, with DigiLearn – you can easily enhance your content at a number of levels. See below for examples.
