Learners in Eduflow can be assigned tags. Tags can be used for different things, but are especially powerful if you want to personalize the learning experience for your learners.

Assigning tags to learners 🏷

There are different ways for your learners to be assigned to a tag.

Tag learners as an instructor

An admin or instructor can create tags and assign tags to learners manually, which happens on the participants page.

On the course's participants page, you can create new tags, adjust the color for the tag, and add existing tags to learners underneath the Tags column. This involves tagging each learner individually.

Do you have many learners, making this task quite daunting? You can also use an integration with Zapier to bulk tag multiple learners. Read more about this option here. Note that a Zapier integration is only available on the Plus plan or higher.

Select a tag activity

You can have learners assign their own tags by using the 'Select a tag' activity. In this activity, you can allow your learners to choose tags themselves and edit their tags. This lessens the administrative burden and gives control to the learner for them to assign their tag. Read more about this activity here.

What can I use tags for?

You can use tags for a variety of purposes:

  • To allocate by tag in a peer review process

  • To filter learners in the summary, instructor review, and result interface

  • To split learners during discussion activities into smaller discussion groups

  • To open up specific content based on a tag selection

Allocate by tag in a peer review process

With the help of tags you can make sure that learners will only review other learners that belong in the same cohort, or who worked on the same topic. You can do this with custom allocation rules based on tags, read more about this here.

Filter learners based on tags

You can use tags to filter learners in the summary page and results page. Another possibility is to filter learners based on tags while working in an instructor review activity.

Create smaller discussion groups

Separate discussions by tags and decide which topics learners will be able to see and interact with based on their tag selections.

Open up specific content based on tags

Combine tags with subsetting and allow learners to access content based on their tag selection. Read more about subsetting here.
