What is a Huddle?
A Huddle is a compilation of learning tools designed to facilitate in-organization learning.
Huddles allow teams to “huddle” around a particular topic using different types of content modules to collaborate and share knowledge. They contain completion and scoring metrics so Coaches and Managers can track Participant’s progress and evaluate their knowledge of the content.
How to Create a Huddle
Here are the steps for creating a Huddle:
- Click on the hamburger menu in the upper right
- Hover your cursor over “+Create Content”
- Using the dropdown menu, select the Huddle format
- Huddle gives you a blank Huddle template
- Huddle with Pitch gives you a Huddle template with a Pitch module
The first thing to consider when creating a Huddle is which type to choose, based on who/how you want to participate.
There are two types of Huddle: open and scheduled. Open Huddles are accessible by everyone in the instance, and do not have Hosts or assigned Participants. Scheduled Huddles are accessible by Coaches, Managers, and assigned Participants, and are facilitated by a Host.
For an in-depth overview of the different Huddle types, see: What is the difference between an Open and a Scheduled Huddle?
Publishing a Huddle
After you select your Huddle type (open or scheduled) and click “Create,” you will be taken to the Huddle publishing page:
Here, you can add modules, configure the attributes (title, description, category, etc), turn Hidden Activities on, and send out a Huddle invite message to your assigned Participants (if it’s a scheduled Huddle).
You can save your edits as you go along (before publishing), and use the Preview button to view and interact with the content exactly as your Participants will see it:
Once you are ready for the Huddle template to go-live, simply click Publish and it will appear in the Library category you’ve designated (if no category is specified, it will default to the TBD folder).
If at any time you navigate away from your Huddle before publishing, you can find the unpublished template(s) in the Huddle Publisher.
