Upgrades to our CLMS (custom learning management system) were released this week. Our guest blogger is Ryan Hutchcroft, a programmer at CustomGuide, and he describes these changes below.
This week marks the release of four important changes to our custom learning management system (CLMS). In response to customer feedback, we have spent the last few weeks simplifying the way courses are delivered, adding the ability to control when users receive certificates and retake assessments, updating the Course Status screen, and completely redesigning our reports. We hope these changes make the CLMS easier for users and administrators to use.
1. New Course Delivery Options Administrators now have a few more options on how to deliver a course to their users: Assessment Only, Tutorials Only, and Complete Course.
2. Assessment Retries and Percent Correct requirement In addition to the new course delivery options, administrators can set the number of times users can attempt to answer assessment questions. Also, administrators can set the percentage of assessments users need to get correct in order to receive a certificate for a course.
3. Updated Course Status Screen The Course Status screen has been redesigned to reflect the new course delivery options. The Course Status screen now divides pre and post assessments into two columns. It also shows the number of times the user has attempted each assessment. New graphics identify the status of each tutorial and assessment, helping users know exactly where they are in a course.
4. Redesigned Reports Every online learning report has been redesigned in the CLMS. The new reports are designed so that an administrator can drill down from any report into a corresponding report while keeping the same filtering options. The reports also have new layouts and the ability to sort columns by clicking headers. This lends consistency to both the look of the reports and the corresponding data.
We hope that these changes reflect our customers’ needs and make the CLMS easier to use for both administrators and users. Stay tuned for further updates as we continue to make improvements to the CLMS and implement our vision of the future of online learning.
