YLab Learning is the online education portal of YLab, a social enterprise for young people and those who work along side them.
Their ‘Design the future’ modules are immersive, practical learning experiences featuring video content, infographics, storytelling and interactive reflection activities.
The courses are delivered through the ‘LearnDash’ LMS plugin for WordPress. The LMS integrates seamlessly with their existing WordPress website, picking up design styles from their WordPress theme.
YLab courses can be designed, built and easily edited using an intuitive course builder where lessons, topics and activities can be dragged and dropped into the course structure.
WordPress is popular. Using WordPress as their LMS gives YLab content creators access to a multitude of interactive content-generating plugins such as storytelling tools, personally quizzes etc.
The suite of YLab courses include both free and paid courses. Payment is made through an eCommerce Wordpress plugin that integrates with the LearnDash LMS.
Students are automatically registered into the two free courses when they create a YLab Learning account. They can then purchase and self-register in any of the paid courses using the simple and intuitive enrolment form.
Students can also be registered into groups or cohorts, via bulk enrolments by either a YLAb administrator or a group leader.
The LMS dashboard provides YLab students with an overview of course completion and progress. Administrators and group leaders can view the progress of their cohorts and export results using the ProPanel reporting plugin.
