Moodle Plugins Designed to Increase Learner Engagement

Moodle has become one of the most popular learning management systems on the market, used by over 100 million users. The beauty of Moodle is that it is open-source, customisable, highly flexible, feature-rich and dynamic. Moodle enables universities and higher education institutions to deliver efficient and engaging online courses with ease. At Enovation, our Moodle team is focused on leading all projects to a successful end by creating innovative learning environments and engaging and innovative content.  We believe that collaboration is the key to success which is why we work alongside our clients every step of the way advising them on the best plugins and features that will fulfil their learning objectives. Below we have outlined a number of plugins that focus specifically on increasing learner engagement.

Custom Certificate:

Custom Certificate enables the creation of dynamically generated certificates. This plugin is a great addition for any educator, it allows users to create a customisable PDF certificate in their web browser. It proves unique verification codes for each certificate so you can use certificates for authentic accreditation.


Allows timed release of content and emails users to remind them to complete course activities. Reengagement provides a way for teachers, educators and lecturers to remind students to return to the course and to complete activities. The email is sent at a specified period of time after a starting event, which may be enrolment in the course, or completing an earlier activity.

If the user has already completed the target activity, no email is sent. You can also use this plugin to selectively release timed content in a course.


Mootivated is personalised engagement platforms that reward student effort for learning in Moodle. Virtual coins are awarded for working in Moodle and they can be spent at the discretion of the user. Mootivated is intended more for schools and higher/further education.  Users can spend their virtual coins to update their avatar and upload it to their Moodle site.  Our student-generated content allows students to create digital avatar parts and upload them to the mobile app.  Mootivated can be downloaded by students and teachers for free.

Level Up!:

Gamification is fast becoming the buzzword of online learning but there is merit to the concept of game playing to increase engagement. The plugin Level up! is an easy way to add gamification to a Moodle site. It is a customisable block that a teacher can add to a course to give experience points to students as they progress through a course. The aim of gamifying the learning experience with this plugin is to increase engagement and participation by motivating students to progress toward the next level.

Moodle offers endless possibilities in the area of plugins for all needs and requirements. To find out more about what you need and what could help you to achieve your results contact our team today.
