Happy New Year! We couldn’t think of a better way to kick off your 2018 than by releasing a stack of cool new updates and tools to help you make this year your best learning year ever!

We have new tools for content creators to gain insights as to how learners are using their content, updates on adding suggested completion dates, a new teaching overview page to let you quickly know how your learners are progressing, updates to both our Awards and Reporting tools, and the ability to change the language of your portal.

Check out all of the details below.

Suggested completions on learning items

You can now specify a date or completion rule on a learning item within a course. When editing a course, click the ellipsis icon (…) for that learning item, then click Settings. You will be able to choose between the scheduled due date being based on commencement of that learning item, or commencement of the parent of that learning item

Note: Due to this addition, we’ve also updated the way in which you access the learning item. When you click on the ellipsis icon for the learning item within the course, you can click View Overview to access the overview of that learning item and Edit to access the edit screen directly.

Updates to My Teaching tab

We have created a new overview dashboard for assessors and content authors which displays a summary of the enrolments and content managed by that user. Users can click through to see the report used to tally each statistic.

You can now see at a glance how your users are tracking against the due dates scheduled for their learning via our new learner enrollments tab. Learner enrollments displays a summary of the enrollments for which you are responsible, along with the due date for that enrollment and a count of the number of days the learner is ahead or behind, in relation to that due date.

Language updates

Our portal interface now supports English (Australian). You can change the portal language within portal settings and the preference for your account within your user account settings. This primarily impacts the spelling of “Enrolment” throughout the portal.

Content administrator role

It’s easier than ever to delegate responsibilities and have your team update training content on your portal. A new content administrator role has been created which allows users with this role to perform all content management actions, without having access to the full rights of a portal administrator.

Image sizing

To make it easier for you to add images to your portal, we have added options that will automatically scale your image to be the correct size so that you don’t need to adjust the image yourself.

Content providers can view a usage dashboard

To allow our content providers to have a better understanding of how users are interacting with their content, we are introducing a new dashboard where users can take a more in depth look into their users, courses, analytics, payments and more.

Updates to awards

We now support standalone learning items and awards within awards (up to 4 levels). Simply search for a learning item or award when you click to “Add content” to an award.

We now support assigning credits on learning items within a course. When editing an award, hover over the course card and click on the ellipsis icon, visible from the top right of the card. Click on Configuration, it will open a modal popup. You can select the Child level toggle to allocate credits to the learning items within that course.

The reports tab now shows the child enrolments for that award enrolment, available via an expand/collapse icon to the left of the learner’s name

You can now enrol learners and import enrolments into an award via the reports tab on an award. Click Enrol Users to open a modal popup, containing a list of Learners who are not currently enrolled in that Award.

When you edit an award with the goal Reach a Target or Track Ongoing Learning, you will now have the option to enable external learning records for that award:

  • If that option is disabled, users cannot add external learning records to their enrolment in the award
  • If that option is enabled, users can add external learning records to their enrolment in the award via the my progress and learner records tabs
  • If external learning records are enabled on an award, you can now also enable moderation of those external learning records. Click the Moderation toggle to enable this setting on an award.
  • If moderation is enabled, external learning records can be added to a learner’s enrolment in the award, but the credits associated with that external learning record don’t count towards the award enrolment until the external learning record has been passed by an administrator.
  • External learning records can be passed by clicking on the ellipsis icon (…) to the right of the external learning record within the reports tab of an award, and on the learner’s learning records tab, when viewing that tab as an admin, then by selecting Edit. A modal popup will open, asking you if the user passed this enrolment. Enable the toggle and apply the change to pass the learning record.
  • If an admin adds an external learning record on behalf of a user, it is automatically passed.
  • If moderation is disabled, any external learning records attached to an award enrolment will automatically count towards the award enrolment credits.
  • If moderation is enabled, external learning records can be added to a learner’s enrolment in the award, but the credits associated with that external learning record don’t count towards the award enrolment until the external learning record has been passed by an administrator.
  • External learning records can be passed by clicking on the ellipsis icon (…) to the right of the external learning record within the reports tab of an award, and on the learner’s learning records tab, when viewing that tab as an admin, then by selecting Edit. A modal popup will open, asking you if the user passed this enrolment. Enable the toggle and apply the change to pass the learning record.
  • If an admin adds an external learning record on behalf of a user, it is automatically passed.
  • If moderation is disabled, any external learning records attached to an award enrolment will automatically count towards the award enrolment credits.
  • If an admin adds an external learning record on behalf of a user, it is automatically passed.
  • If moderation is disabled, any external learning records attached to an award enrolment will automatically count towards the award enrolment credits.

Updates to reports

There is a default filter on the Users report to exclude inactive (blocked) users. This filter can be changed or removed through the report filters

You can now filter the Enrolments report by User Status, meaning that you can filter out enrolments from users who are inactive (blocked) from your portal.
