Launching the NEW DPG Community

Launching the NEW DPG Community

Hi everyone,

Really exciting times as we look to move to a new home next week. After 2 years the DPG Community is moving to a new home. The platform provides some great new features and a completely new layout and look & feel.

We've listened to your comments about navigation, finding groups and relevant content and made a huge amount of improvements which we're sure you'll love.

What do you need to know?

You won't need to do anything differently. The Community will switch over one night early next week and the next time you log in you'll see a new login page but your login detals WILL NOT HAVE CHANGED.

Once you're in you'll see a new home page called 'Main Hub' and the menu has moved to the left hand side. Here is a screen shot to wet your appetite.

We are launching a new profile page 'Your Profile' which will give you easy access to your groups and provide a better way to connect with your fellow community members (your learning network). You'll have a new status update, easy access to the content you add and ability to add content much easier.

We're launching 3 new zone areas for all your L&D, HR and Leadership Development needs. Each zone will have a forum and a resources area as well as latest content from around the globe. each zone will have a Pick of the Week and an Events and CPD area.

We're also launching new look groups that will have more functionality and will include the ability for you to create chatrooms to keep in touch with your fellow learners. All your existing groups will be there but will look a bit different and there will be ther special interest groups you will be able to join including the 'Becoming a Smarter Learner' group.

Here's a sneaky look at a group in the new community

There is a host of other things you'll be able to explore and discover such as

  • A new blog area.
  • Member offers
  • new mainroom chat and more options around chat
  • New search bar with better search in forums
  • new activity feed with status updates (like Twitter)

We'll be creating some videos to help you find your way around but like anything new it's best to get stuck in and explore and play.

The DPG team will be around to answer any questions and as we're moving systems there may be the odd broken link around. if you see anything like that just let us know and we'll fix it straight away.

We can't wait to go live with the new platform and I'm sure you'll agree with us it's a huge step forward as we say good bye to the old DPG Community and hello to pastures new.

Got any questions?

Let us know below :)
