E-Commerce Course & Curricula Extensions (New Learner Experience)

Learners can now purchase an extension for a course they've previously purchased that will allow them to extend the expiry date based on the available options the Admin has configured for the given course. Admins will be able to configure up to 3 different extension periods for purchase per course and offer different price points for each. The extensions can also be used in conjunction with coupons and "extension purchases" will be incorporated throughout Reporting in the LMS ( ex: "Is extension" column and filter in the Transaction Details Report).

Admin,

Learner

Absorb Skillsoft Integration (New Learner Experience)

Absorb will now be offering a integration with Skillsoft. This new feature allows clients to easily sync and import Skillsoft course content to the LMS. Admins can license users both via one time rules or peristing rules and track users progress and completion in the same format as other online courses in the LMS. For more information on Skillsoft please see our Absorb Integration with Skillsoft article.

Admin,

Course Upload Improvements (New Learner Experience)

  • Files that fail the Virus Scan and a virus is found cannot be opened/downloaded from the course details page by the learner and the Course Uploads report by an Admin. This provides added security to the Admin and learner if a malicious file is found.

Admin,

Learner

External Training Improvements (New Learner Experience):

  • Pending records that have not been approved by an Admin will appear on the learner's transcript and also the learner's transcript within the Admin site. Both locations now display Pending records and Approved records. Declined records are hidden from both views (but can be found within the External Training report).

Admin,

Learner

License Type Availability Rule (New Learner Experience):

"License Type" has now been added to all places that use availability rules. This will allow clients who have course library integrations with BizLibrary or Skillsoft to tailor their content to learners that have a license. This covers:

  • Course
    • Self-enrollment
    • Automatic enrollment
    • Variable credits
  • Billboards
  • Polls
  • Leaderboards
  • News Articles
  • Global Resources
  • Groups

Admin

ILC Course Details: 2 views: Calendar (current) and Detail (new):

  • The detail view includes a list of all available sessions to the learner and is not bound to a specific date.
  • The calendar view will continue to display available sessions for the entire month or for a given day depending on the learner's selection.
  • The overall design for the session information has been updated to move the instructor(s) and location to be with the date/time of the session and no longer appears within the expand/collapse area. This allows for greater visibility to the learner when viewing several sessions within an ILC to see their location or instructor without having to expand each detail section.

Admin

LinkedIn Learning

Updates to the LinkedIn Learning course sync to improve performance.
