Learn-WiseGo Implements a New SCORM Code!

What is SCORM? SCORM is an acronym that stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model. It is a specific file type that is used within learning management systems (LMS) because it can be shared easily between various LMS’s. All of your testable modules, that are built within a 3rd party authoring tool, must be published as a SCORM file type so that it will function and report properly within the LMS.

When Learn-WiseGo launched we were operated by the leading SCORM implementation at that time called Legacy Technology Stack. Our most recent SCORM operating update involved migrating from Legacy Stack to the newest and most advanced SCORM Implementation code.

Some of the benefits you will receive from this upgrade include:

Increased performance: New implementation can handle two to three times the requests per second as Legacy implementation.

Increased stability: Processes are closely monitored and managed by the run-time, so that if one misbehaves (leaks, deadlocks), a new process can be created in its place. Which helps keep application constantly available to handle requests.

Better native cloud support: Legacy stack was not 100% compatible with cloud, requiring us to have workarounds, this sometimes resulted in unavailability of SCORM modules intermittently. The new implementation has much improved native cloud support.

The new SCORM Code, launched at the beginning of July 2019, is a very exciting advancement for Learn-WiseGo. If you would like more information on how this code will benefit your site, contact your Account Manager.

LEARN-WISEGO: PERFORMANCE DASHBOARD WIDGET UPDATE!

You might recall that a few months ago we showcased our first two performance dashboard widgets: the User Lesson Plan Performance Widget and the User Performance Detail Report Widget. The Learn-WiseGo team is excited to announce the release of another performance dashboard widget that will allow you to keep track of your user’s login information in a quick and efficient manner.

LOGIN PERFORMANCE DASHBOARD WIDGET

The Login dashboard widget gives you an overview of your user’s login data. Whether you want to see those who have never accessed their Learn-WiseGo account, who logged in on a specific date or which days of the month typically have the highest number of logins, the Login dashboard widget is there to help!

To access a list of user’s who have never logged into their account, simply click on the underlined, highlighted number in the red banner.

If you want a quick overview of how many user’s have logged in on a specific date, simply ‘hover over’ any green bar on the graph. You can access a list of user’s names who logged in on that specific date by ‘clicking’ on the green bar.

Just like our other performance dashboard widgets, your Login dashboard widget can be accessed from the System Reports > Dashboards tab on your Learn-WiseGo sidebar menu and can easily be pinned to your Dashboard for quicker access by clicking on the ‘push pin’ icon in the top right corner.

Group Structure: How to organize your Super Groups into a Group Structure by Regions and/or Products.

An organized Group Structure is critical for managing a large portion of users, as well as their performance.

Super Groups and sub-groups will help you reflect your Company structure and better organize Lesson Plans Assignments and Group Management.

If you would like to structure your groups by product, and assign a Lesson Plan to a group of distributors, start creating your “Product” Group, then create the type of training for the specific product, ex. Basic or Advanced.

Any Distribution Partner who needs this the “Product Basic Training” can be added to the sub-group you would like to assign trainings to.

Instead, if you would like to organize groups by regions, you could create the USA country Super Group containing California and Colorado States as sub-groups. You can add further groups within these states such as cities. Each of these groups can have their own set of users.

Any new user who joins the organization and is required to take Lesson Plans which apply to the specific Country/Region/City can be added to the group at a later time.

While creating groups, take also into account which of your Site Sub-administrators will manage each Group. Their access and privileges will only apply to the assigned group(s).

If you want to find out more on using Super Groups to create a Group Structure within your Learn-WiseGo account, contact your Account Manager for more information!

Custom User Fields: How to Use Them, and Where to View Them

Whether you are training employees or customers, local or international, you may require more information from your users than just their username and email address. For example:

  • For employees: Who do they report to?
  • For physicians: What is their specialty?
  • For students: What subject are they most interested in?

In Learn-WiseGo, you can track that information with Custom User Fields. To start, go to Users > Custom User Fields, and click the orange plus sign to create a new field.

Name your new Custom Field, and then choose a Field Type. You can create:

  • Text Box or Text Area (free text entry)
  • Radio Button
  • Date
  • Check Box
  • Email
  • Drop Down
  • Number Entry

Choose whether you would like this field to be required or optional, and click “Save”.

You’re done! So, now that you’ve created a custom field and started to collect that data, where can you see it?

If you would like to see all your users’ answers in one place, go to your User List and select the check box on the far right to open the User Fields menu. Make sure your new custom field is selected to see and sort by your new user data. This data will also be shown when exporting your User List to Excel.
