Everything you need to build a successful online community

Rich & interactive

Embed videos, slidedecks, and even interactive HTML5 content.

In Noddlepod you can write, format and illustrate your text with images and embedded media. You can upload files directly from your computer or simply link to resources of relevance.

Links to YouTube, Vimeo and other popular web sites automatically expand as an embedded resource.

Administrator only functionality allows you to highlight important or official content to visually differentiate it from the community’s contributions. You can also “flag” a piece of content to make sure it always floats to the top of the activity stream.

Group

User generated content

Engage your learners in discussions, knowledge sharing and mutual support. Let the community flourish in and around provided content.

Noddlepod has been designed from the ground up with community building and collaborative learning in mind. The user interface mimics social media platforms that people are familiar with. All users can create their own content, share resources and insights, ask questions and have discussions with their peers.

An individual piece of content can also be made collaborative, allowing users to create and edit content together. You can see different users’ contributions in the post history, and even compare and revert back to previous versions of a post.

Post

Context & relevance

Organise content and activity making it easy to reference at the point of need. Build a knowledge database over time.

Each group on Noddlepod has a unique structure of categories set up by the administrator, defining the scope of a community or the progression though a course. Content can be organised into a category and also assigned tags by its author, or any of the group administrators.

The simple selective categorisation of the content builds a knowledge database from the activity of the community, allowing members to learn and build on each other’s ideas.

Category tree

Personalised notifications

Engage even the busiest of your learners by letting them define exactly what they want to be kept up-to-date with.

Users can personalise the frequency and content of their email notifications right down to the level of the categories in each group.

Noddlepod unique organisation increases users’ personal “signal to noise ratio”, thereby reducing the time commitment required for valuable participation. Increased personal relevance translates into increased engagement, cross-pollination of ideas and productivity.

Advanced reporting

Get the feedback you need to ensure your learning community thrives. Generate detailed reports of all the activity in your group.

A group’s activity on Noddlepod can be analysed to give meaningful data on the engagement of participants, the interactions between them and the effectiveness of the programme as a whole.

Noddlepod analytics allows you to monitor how activity is distributed and move between categories. This can tell you who the experts are within each subject matter or when learners are lagging behind schedule.

Talk to us about what data is meaningful to you. We can create customised reports and our amazing partners can help you turn data into insights and facilitation advice.

Plays well with others

Including integrations with H5P, YouTube, Vimeo, plus an API and single sign on support, is there anything you can't do with Noddlepod?!

There are so many ways to create engaging and interactive content these days. Embed such resources into a post on Noddlepod and your users can browse that content without leaving the platform.
