Administrator- User Role

The highest level of site access. This role has full access to every area of your organizational site.

Career Path

A career path is a recommended group of courses or events which you may assign to users.  The courses and events will appear under My Learning on the Current Training tab as elective trainings which the user may unenroll from.

CategoriesCourses and events may belong to course categories. Users are able to search for courses and events in the Learning Catalog via Categories.
ComplianceA user is deemed compliant if the user has either completed his/her requirements or the user's required by date is greater than or equal to the current date.
CourseCourses can be added either by the Administrator or Instructor. If added by the Instructor, that Instructor is automatically assigned to the course. If added by the System Administrator, no instructor will be assigned. The System Administrator must assign the Instructor manually.
CurriculumCurricula are groups of requirements that you can assign to learners as mandatory, either with or without a required by date (RBD). By creating curricula, you can easily and quickly assign a group of requirements to learner(s) and then report on and track compliance with those requirements (overdue, overall completion, etc.).
EventEvents include learning activities that take place outside the regular online classroom such as seminars, in-person classes, live online synchronous meetings, media-based events (for example, a CD or a PowerPoint™ presentation that Learners can access from an in-house library) and external/other events. Similar to online courses, events are listed in the course catalog and are integrated into the student registration process.
HierarchyIn the Hierarchy, you can define groups of Learners called Enrollment Levels. Each Enrollment Level is represented by a folder in the Hierarchy 'tree.' In order to run reports, each learner must be assigned to a folder in the hierarchy. The hierarchy levels are used as filters for supervisor level access and to link the learner to his/her supervisor for the purposes of warning emails.
Instructor - User RoleAn Administrator may assign an instructor to one or more event sessions. Instructors are able to add additional events and courses.
Learner - User RoleThe basic access level; allows a user to take courses and events.
