SafeUser for Moodle

The digital security course “SafeUser” has a Moodle version.

SafeUser is a cybersecurity awareness course for non-technical users consisting of 15 chapters and a final exam. SafeUser has developed a version for Moodle, one of the most common platforms in many companies and public entities. This Moodle version can be installed very easily by means of a single import file that includes all the contents and configurations described in this article.

SafeUser offers an installable version in Moodle

Moodle is one of the most widespread solutions among all types of organizations as a Learning Management Platform (LMS).

SafeUser is no stranger to this reality and therefore has a version of the course designed to be installed in a few steps on any Moodle platform.

For all those organizations that use Moodle and decide to train their employees in digital security, the most practical and logical solution is to acquire a course that can be imported directly into their own Moodle platform.

These are the main advantages:

  • Users already know how to access Moodle and there is no added complexity to the course access process.
  • Time savings in the installation and configuration process of the course.
  • Guarantee of success: the course has already been successfully completed by thousands of users on their respective Moodle platforms.
  • Although the course comes with a standard configuration, it is easily customizable according to the needs of each client.

Segmentation into chapters

One of the main features of the SafeUser course in Moodle is that it is segmented into chapters.

Each chapter consists of two activities:

  • Interactive slides in SCORM format with learning contents that include simulations of real situations, practical activities and didactic resources that motivate active learning.
  • Questionnaire of 5 learning reinforcement questions that serve as a reflection in addition to the slides.

The activities are configured in such a way that it is necessary to follow the order in which they appear in the course. As shown in the image, only the first activity (DIAPOSITIVES – Cybercrime) is enabled. The next quiz activity will be activated when all the previous slides have been viewed.

Once the five quiz questions have been answered, the next slide activity will be activated and so on.

In this way, participants follow a previously established itinerary according to the order in which the course has been conceived. Therefore, you always arrive at the final exam with all chapters completed.

Final exam

The final exam consists of 20 multiple-choice questions taken randomly for each participant from the 150 questions in the course. The responses are also in randomized order. This makes it difficult for participants to share information about the answers to help each other.

Questions may have more than one correct answer. In this way, participants are forced to reflect more than when only one of the answers is correct. The correction process of the exam penalizes incorrect answers.

Satisfaction survey and certificate of achievement

After passing the final exam, the “Satisfaction Survey” module is activated to receive participants’ opinions and comments.

Once completed and submitted, the Certificate of Completion is activated and each participant can download it directly from their Moodle account.

Activity reports.

Users with a teacher, manager or administrator profile can view and download activity reports in the Moodle option “Grades”.

The course is set up in a way that allows for very detailed tracking of each participant’s level of progress, as well as the overall progress of the group.

Slides: Each completed slide activity is scored with a “1” on the report card. This score does not count towards the final grade, but indicates that the activity has been completed.

Questionnaires: For each questionnaire answered, the report shows the score obtained by each participant. This score does not count towards the final grade, but still indicates that the questionnaire has been completed.

Final exam: In the column of the report corresponding to the final exam, the score obtained by each participant is shown. This result does count towards the final grade. The course is configured to require a passing score of 70%.

As explained above, all these specifications are customizable and can be adapted to the criteria of each organization.
