Advanced Moderation: Now Available Online

Lithium Alumni (Retired)


 Advanced Moderation Online


Lithium’s new Advanced Moderation course was developed using Lithium’s own moderation model. We highly recommend this course for individual moderators, moderation teams, community managers, and community stakeholders interested in understanding community dynamics and learning best practices to improve the tone, quality, and management of community content.


The online course consists of 30 minutes of video tutorials and a downloadable moderation guidelines template. A Lithium Community badge will be awarded when you complete this course.


Participants learn about:


  • Characteristics of an effective moderator and the overarching goals of moderation
  • Public and private community documents, including Terms of Service and Moderator Guidelines
  • Maintaining a positive atmosphere through engagement with users
  • Identifying and interacting with different types of community members
  • Identifying and handling violations using the Five Levels of Moderation




Thought Leadership


Moderation is one of the key elements of any successful community or social platform. Lithium has over 10 years of experience in moderation, and during that time we’ve developed best practices that transform moderation into a positive tool for change.


This course was developed by Lithium’s Manager of Moderation Services, Sandra Dorman (@SandyD) and Moderation Team Lead, Lesley Pfeifer (@LesleyP). This course is designed to equip moderators and moderation teams with the knowledge and skill set to maintain healthy and successful communities.
