Adding a new course to a Learning Plan | The Impact - the discussion continues
Evening,There was a thread that started to answer a question, and it actually helps me to understand how to handle “severe” structural changes for a SCORM course when I should consider hiding and showing training material related to a course.@lrnlab described a model where he hides the older training material and adds a brand new training material to the system - thus preserving the older completion data...this is neat and will definitely serve its purpose to help us manage learning objects moving forward.BUT I am curious - we were thinking of leveraging a learning plan that we slowly add courses to it so that we trickle a curriculum. Admittedly, the content is actually not ready for the courses as of yet, the roadmap for said courses is in good shape (pretty much)….so in theory we can lock up course shells until it is available.That said - has anyone slowly added courses to Learning Plans overtime? What was the implication to the Learning Plan? Did it change back to in process when a
Most used browsers July 2022 - a graph and open conversation
This image comes from one of the many marketing companies that monitor browser usage across the internet. Where I love that we are here? For folks that made strides in the industry in the 2010’s? We took a beating to get here.Here are some plain facts about this - but would love to hear you add any thoughts.- Chrome used to be called a consumer browser. Some may still say that. But two out of the three most popular used browsers are based on Chromium today.- Safari is still based on WebKit…and is popular because of the Apple brand and those millions of iPhones that are out there.- At least in my industry folks are still consuming eLearning today more at their desktops with a little less that 6% consuming from their phones.- The death of Adobe flash left scars on many in our industry with a full EOL in late 2020 (honestly browsers were moving us earlier away from supporting flash based eLearning).. But it has been a breath of fresh air to be working with HTML 5 as a ubiquitous format fo
Need a hand - please vote up - the modal popup idea
Most folks are doing calls to action on their own pages using widgets - but modal popup windows can be extremely helpful for all sorts of experiences. So I started an idea.Just making sure everyone knows what I mean? A modal popup or box is an overlay experience in an application in the shape of a window. In the older application days (and it is still used honestly) a web developer would make a whole new window. Because of more modern design and CSS, we can make a div give a similar experience. If you think a picture is worth a thousand words, take a spin over to https://www.w3schools.com/howto/howto_css_modals.asp and press the Open Modal button. Or just take a peek here...We so need something like this that we can control….Many times we have applications that can dismiss those modal windows after a user clicks an ok button….and not stress the user experience for return customers. Other ones force the popup to be persistent (as in it would be something that you cannot dismiss).Wouldn’
Dynamic New Hire Page
I recently watched “Road to Inspire | Building a tailored learning experience” on Docebo University and liked the idea of creating a “dynamic” new hire page where the steps progressed with the user. The way it was explained in the video is:Step 1:Create Group 1: User is new and has not completed anything (indicate using a field on the user detail record) Created Page 1: Page is setup showing the user has not completed any of the steps (indicated with an image that is shown in gray). Page displays for Group 1 only.Step 2:Create Group 2: User has completed necessary courses (indicated by saying course is completed in Group workflow) Created Page 2: Second page is setup showing the user has completed first phase of courses (indicated with an image that is shown in gray, but phase/step one is now in color). Page displays for Group 2 only.Step 3:Repeat for all necessary steps in new hire process.Here is my question:We have been experiencing a long delay (a few hours to a day) for a user to
NEW Community Roundtable on June 17th
Docebo Community, go ahead and block your calendars and let’s get together! Friday, June 17, 202210:30 am to 12:00 pm ET@dklinger and I would like to facilitate a community roundtable with a focus on sharing ideas in the Community and voting them up. Do you have an idea you’ve added that could use some more love? Bring it! Have you seen someone else’s idea that you loved and want to express that love in the form of getting others to upvote it? Bring it! Do you have an new idea that no one else has submitted. Guess what. I want you to go submit that idea and then bring it! This event is for anyone able to attend, and the concept is simple: Quickly, share an idea from the community for an audience of participants that can go in right then and help upvote an idea. The only thing we need is you and your ideas. The more of you that attend, then more ideas to share, then more voters to vote, then the louder the customer voice, and more opportunities for more improvements that benefit the ma
Adding text to the login page
I need to add verbiage above the username and password to say ‘All Internal Employees, please click the SAML SSO button to login to your training. All external users to Panasonic please enter your username and password. ’… Or something link that. I can’t find any language or guide to show where to put this to add this type of text. Thanks
Best Practices for Proactive System Management
As a system administrator, I often get bogged down in responding to issues instead of taking a more proactive approach for preventing problems, but I want to change that. What are some of your suggestions for best practices around ongoing system maintenance? Here are a few that I thought of:Ensure that data feeds are running smoothly. Review error logs and work with appropriate parties to resolve issues. Follow up on outstanding tickets. Regularly review user information for the following: Missing data Duplicate user profiles Admin Accounts – Review admin accounts to confirm that admin level access is still warranted. Power Users – Review power user access to ensure that permissions are appropriate for the User’s role.
Selling subscription to the LMS
I would like to know if anyone is selling subscription “access” to their LMS platform. I know Docebo can be set up to sell courses and catalogs but we want to actually sell an annual subscription to the platform itself and all the content within. We have courses but our real value is in our content - hundreds of resources to be used by teachers in the classroom. Most users come for the content, not necessarily the courses. Here’s a little more background. Our users are school districts and afterschool providers that use our content to learn about SEL and how to implement it in their classroom or program, and get tools and resources to use with kids. Currently we use a “direct sales” model and new users are added/imported manually with their expiration date. The annual subscription/renewal is all handled outside the system manually. We’d like to implement a SaaS- like subscription model where we sell various levels of access for an annual subscription fee - like organization access (wit
Workaround for the depreciated Web Conference Widget?
I am playing around with how an onboarding plan is set up, and one of the features of a proposed onboarding plan is to have live events scheduled to supplement the e-learning content that is being delivered.My first thought went to the Web Conferencing widget, but I realized it was depreciated, or being depreciated, so we can no longer use it. I know that the VILT course type is set up to support all training material types, but the problem with the layout of the VILT is that it puts the emphasis on the live session (which in most situations, that should be the case). In our use case, we want to put the emphasis on the e-learning materials and have the sessions secondary to the content because the users are not required to attend a specific session.So my question to you all is, were you using the web conference widget and have you done some sort of work around for this?Also, if you weren’t using the widget, and have some ideas, please feel free to post below!
Have you heard? A community roundtable
Hello good peeps. We still have more seats available for the community roundtable event. Seems like we are below a true community quorum? We would be happy if we could get 20 to 25 of yawl to show up. As my daughter says that would be “truly awesome sauce”.A link to the details of the event can be found here:
Is there a way to do any special effects when a user completes a course, beyond a notification?
On our current custom LMS we have confetti fall from the top of the browser window when a user completes a course. I’ve experienced it myself and its surprisingly motivating and fun! Is there any way to do something like this in Docebo?
How do you track metrics with gamification?
We’re looking at getting more serious with using gamification to increase engagement, and I’m wondering how others have measured success with gamification. Are you keeping track of the number of badges earned in a certain period? Are you using surveys? How are you able to measure your success?
Anyone build a group criteria that says if the person does not have these statuses with a Learning Plan?
I am used to mapping in a group because a person has been enrolled in a learning plan. Has anyone had luck to help filter out people that would be part of a “duplicate, snapshot” learning plan.The use case is we have a contingent workforce that are working with us on a work order basis (and not a new employee /.term basis) - a person can have multiple work orders throughout the year and come and go….so I want to avoid deploying a n LP to a person that has already taken an equivalent “snapshot” learning plan .The two LPs actually have the same learning objects - so that makes it easy - and the records are kind of clean - but if I can filter folks from the group side of the story? Then I believe I can avoid enrolling them again if they already took the content in question.So by them not taking an LP or having these statuses with an LP? It is one of the pieces that will contribute to eligibility moving forward.
Resetting learner progress when they reach a maximum number of attempts
I am seeking the communities input on the following scenario. I am open to your thoughts, suggestions, best practice considerations, or other helpful ideas.We recently assigned a course with two training materials. The 1st item was a SCORM package created in iSpring, and the 2nd came in the form of a Docebo test. We assigned the course to employees with a course limitation of three attempts (Advanced Settings > Details > Maximum Number of Attempts). As soon as we enrolled employees, reports came in that some had failed the quiz three times and were locked out. While I know that I can reset the progress for the quiz, I discovered that doing so appears to wipe out their previous attempt history and their item responses. We are hoping to hold on to the latter as we need to review and provide future education based on specific response trends that we have seen.How have you handled building tests with a cap on the number of attempts? Is there a way to save their historical data as pa
Pulling Survey Data
We have a survey (course evaluation) at the end of each course. This evaluation is required and it is the end object marker for users to receive their certificate. Pulling the evaluation report for all of our courses is very cumbersome. Right now, I pull them all quarterly because it takes so long to complete but I’d like to do it monthly.I do not know that there is another way around going to each course and pulling the training material report but I thought here would be a great place to find out. What do you guys do?We do not want to use survey monkey or any other outside source at this time. We are looking into Learning Impact but right now that’s not an option either. I’m open to hearing how you all use those though. It may plead my case for going that direction moving forward.Thank you!
A catalog of courses, that can't be a course yet
I see this idea was put up quite a while ago. What are you all doing for this challenge?Imagine you have effectively a catalog of topics/courses offered on location for customers. The date and location isn’t set until interest is expressed. So, no sessions can be created. This is not an ecommerce thing, the customers are internal. How do your customers tell you what they want so you can create the sessions or maybe even a new course for their people to self enroll?Do you use Docebo for that, or outside processes?
SCORM 2004 package include non-linear sequencing.
Hello!I’m onboarding and loading SCORM file from a vendor. I received this message while loading a course:Can anyone tell me what the learner experience will be if I use this course anyway? It’s a vendor course, so I can’t edit it. But I’m curious about what the learn might miss out on because of the error.Thanks!
Over in the Products Tips and Tricks @Danyel posted an interesting question about channels vs catalogs and that got me thinking about channels. We love channels. We love channels so much, I think we have too many channels. It’s overwhelming. And my team is always saying can we have channel for this and a channel for that and of course the answer is yes! So we make more channels. Having said that, I also would say that we don’t really have any unnecessary channels that are just fluff or redundant so I just need to find a better way of serving them up to the users without them having to scroll and scroll and scroll and end up getting overwhelmed. I don’t know maybe it’s not a problem for most people. Aren’t we all used to doing that anyway with our own TV channels and streaming services every day? I’d definitely be interested in hearing if anyone else has that feeling or has a great solution for keeping all their content organized.
Tips on designing a CE system and assigning Credit values to courses
Hi All!With our previous LMS we had a 25 hour/year CE requirement, with certificates offered to those who met that requirement or went above and beyond (Bronze, Silver and Gold levels). Our old LMS made it easy to both assign a time value to items (such as video length) or time spent on an activity (such as a webinar).We have paused this entire system while we’ve transitioned to Docebo (we launched November 2021) because the focus seems to be on credits vs. time. We are starting to try and redesign our whole system and figure what a new credit-based requirement would look like. We’d like to try and tie gamification badges into this a well. A couple questions for discussion:How many of you have implemented a CE system, what does it look like, and do you have any tips/tricks or best practices? One idea we have is to assign one point to each piece of training material in a course, and that becomes its credit value (5 items = 5 credits). Or, giving documents 1 point and a video say 5 point
