What is Facebook Workplace?
Facebook Workplace is Facebook’s collaboration space to help businesses work together and communicate better. This collaborative feature is available for any Udemy for Business organization that also has a Facebook Workplace account. The integration can be enabled by an admin for your Udemy for Business account.
Main features include:
Communication: instant messaging, HD video and voice calls for 1:1 or group conversations.
Groups: shared spaces for teams to work on projects or collaborate with other organizations.
News Feed: post and stay up to date with important company updates
Integrations: connect Facebook Workplace with top software providers (list of partners)
How does the Udemy for Business integration with Facebook Workplace work?
Your organization will need to have a Facebook Workplace account in order to activate this integration. The integration can be enabled by an admin for your Udemy for Business account (please see below).
Share Button: A button labelled ‘Share to Workplace’ is now available on Course Landing Pages, the Continue Widget and the Course Dashboard. This will initiate a standard Facebook/Workplace share dialog in a window.
Udemybot: This bot will post a weekly message that features the top 5 courses taken to any selected group.
Users can Save, Hide, or Unfollow the weekly Udemybot posts from their Workplace account.
Users can also Save, Hide, or Unfollow members and messages from their Workplace wall.
I don’t see a ‘Share to Workplace’ button this in my Udemy for Business account; how do I enable it?
If you have admin privileges in your Udemy for Business account, you can enable the integration by following these steps:
- Go to Manage > Integration
- Turn on Facebook Workplace integration
- Enable the Udemybot for a weekly post featuring the top 5 courses learned in your Workplace
If your account does not have the Facebook Workplace Integration activated, and you would like to request that it be enabled, please contact the admin for your Udemy for Business account.
What does the share integration look like?
Can users share courses from Udemy.com to Facebook Workplace?
The new Facebook Workplace share button is not part of the Udemy marketplace. Users can manually copy links and share them on Facebook Workplace though, just like they have always been able to do.
What happens to users who click Udemy for Business courses who don’t have access to our company’s Udemy for Business account?
The user will be able to see the Course Landing Page but will not be able to enroll in the course. They will need to contract their account’s admin to request access.
How can I customize the messages posted by Udemybot?
We do not currently support any customizing the message; however, we may add customization options in future releases. If you would like to request that this option become available in the future, please submit a feature request here.
