Multitenancy Moodle and LearnerScript
Multitenancy in Moodle Learning Management System (aka Moodle LMS) is a big deal in many aspects of eLearning. The reasons for that for medium to large organizations are obvious and lucid – bringing their individual companies’ L&D under one umbrella LMS, with the least possible investment.
For that reason, the cost-effective multitenancy Moodle paves the way for the easy control and dispensation of L&D to each company within it, without the interference of them one another.
IOMAD, Workplace, and some Corporate LMSes are the best examples of multitenant Moodle platforms.
Okay, then. What about the multitenancy reporting?
Keeping that in mind, eAbyas Info Solutions introduced LearnerScript, a Moodle reporting tool, which has no best alternative as some claim to have. This Moodle plugin provides Moodle analytics for plain Moodle LMSs, for IOMAD, and for other multitenant Moodle LMSs.
As we are looking at the multitenancy Moodle, here are some of the common Moodle reports useful for multitenancy platforms like IOMAD Moodle.

#2. Trending Graded Activities Report
The activity on your IOMAD Moodle can be anything: an assignment, a quiz, a SCORM package, a resource, etc. And these activities have to be graded.

And the assignments are listed along with their respective courses. There are non-graded learners as well. Again, it depends on what you want to measure from the assignments by your folks.
