We’ve added a lot of new and exciting features to our Learning Management System recently! Keep up with our updates in this article, as well as our ongoing Announcements and Releases section within our Support Center.
New Learning User Experience
The LMS Learner interface is fully updated with a new and improved experience; users have a whole new interface to better see where they stand with courses. We have also improved customized photos, text, and notifications for administrators. For a quick and easy walk-through of Knowledge Anywhere’s LMS user experience, check out this demo video, guided by Knowledge Anywhere Founder Charlie Gillette. For a written
New Homepage Action Buttons
We have added what we call “Action Buttons” to the home screen to help users better understand and act on their learning journey. Users will now be able to see what their current progress is at a glance and know exactly where they stand and what items require them to take near-term or immediate action, such as “past due” courses (and provide quick links to do so).
Learning Path and Transcript Improvements
Users will have a better understanding of what learning paths they are assigned through the new visual card-style presentation and will have a clearer insight of statues with the colored visual progress reports. The progress graphs will show percentages of course completions, courses in progress, and un-started courses.
Messages and notifications will now appear alongside learning paths on the homepage.
New Learning Path Filters
Users have tools to filter down courses by assignment, course types, status, and more from the Learning Paths Page.
Added Message Center
We now have a new dedicated message center that allows users will see when admins send messages to them and it’s all in one place.
Administrators can now assign Categories to Learning Paths and Courses. An example of this would be “Onboarding,” where Admins could place relevant training content under, so new Learners would know where to look first.
Admins can find this new feature under Content > Categories.
Updated Registrar Role
A logged-in Administrator with a registrar role can do the following:
- After logging in as a user with Registrar admin role, the default landing page is the manage courses page
- View Users and Transcripts
Group Assignment of Learning Paths based on Hire Date
Admins now have the option to do Group Assignment of Learning Paths based on Learner Hire Dates. A range is chosen and if a learner’s hire date is within that date range, they get assigned the learning path.
Support Up to 10 Custom User Text Fields and 10 Custom Dropdown Fields
In Site > Custom Field Labels page, Admins will be able to see, edit, and save 10 text and 10 dropdowns.
Our team has ensured these custom fields dynamically show up in Site > Personalization > Fields page, in the Dropdown custom fields, in the Group Edit page under Users > Manager Users > Edit page, and on the Learner site.
This tool, allowing Learners to sign digital signatures within the LMS, gives legal validity of Learners completing their courses. Learners can sign electronically using one of three ways:
1. Type your digital signature
2. Draw your signature digitally
3. Upload files of your signature
Admins will be able to see which courses Learners have signed through PandaDoc.
