Course SCORM File Replacement + Publish Button is not showing for active users
Hey everyone! For one of our SCORM file-based courses, we noticed an error, where the wrong SCORM file from the CAM was selected for a Page. To fix this issue, we replaced the wrong SCORM file with the correct SCORM file using the red Replace File button and selecting the appropriate file from the CAM dropdown menu. Once this change was made, we clicked on the green publish button. As it is for any changes made in the Question Library, I thought this change would appear automatically for any users that were currently enrolled in the course. However, that was not the case as the current user still had the previously incorrect SCORM file showing in that course despite the replacement.Is this standard when it comes to the Replace File button, so the change is only visible to future users? I thought clicking the Publish button made any updates visible to ALL users (current and future).
Course Version for SCORM Activity
On a learner’s account from a managerial point of view, I’m under the Engagement tab and looking at the learner’s SCORM activity to decipher an issue. Can anyone confirm if the Course Version column relates to the version of the SCORM file within the CAM? In the screenshot I attached, a lot of the SCORM Activity has 1 for the Course Version, but all of those SCORM files have been updated in the CAM more than just one time, so they should be showing 2 or 3 like the one with 5 shows, right?
Has anyone found a workaround to customizing your catalog sort options?
Our team wants to sort our courses in a catalog widget in a specific order. We’ve come up with custom course codes that can group the content together within the catalog and sort using title, but we are not a fan of using the codes. Crowd sourcing any ideas on how other teams are custom sorting their courses in the catalog widget. Thanks!
programmatically create a course?
Hi,Has anyone managed to programmatically create a course?Looking through the API documentation, I could not see any endpoints to ‘create’ content. Our Instructional Designers create content in Google Slides. Which can be exported to SVG file format.The idea was to prepare a Google Colab that would export the Google Slides to SVG, prepare a SVG to Course mapping JSON file. (so we know which SVG goes to which section, lesson and page) Then create the Course Group, Course, Section, Lesson, Page(s).We could go further to add mp3 audio to the Page via one of the TTS services.However the idea seems to be dead in the water right now. :noo: :sad: ThanksDanny
Any SCORM Connect users?
Hello-Anyone out there that uses SCORM Connect files for customers? We have a couple of customers that we supply SCORM Connect course files to that use them in their company LMS. My question is about certificates - can a SCORM Connect user receive our Thought Industries completion certificate if they don’t have access to their Ti dashboard?Thanks!--Julie
CSS for Assignments (No Comments)
Good day all. We use assignments a lot to say the least. One thing we don’t care for is the view of comments just before the actual type or attach assignment. Please vote this up as we have never found a use for comments and most users complain that they just start typing only to copy paste into type assignment. Here is what it looks like by default and we want no comments ever.
How to Mark Learners as Attended in ILTs?
How is everyone marking learners as attended for ILTs?The only way I’m seeing is to manually select all attendees and change to attended for each meeting. This is a really tedious process for us when we have 30+ attendees for 3 meetings and we can’t doublecheck our work because there is an hour delay on all bulk functions? I’ve tried the bulk import but it just marks people as completed and doesn’t grant certificates or CEUs.Has anyone found a better way to do this?
Adding Name to Certificate
Hi, does anyone else have an issue with the name not being centered on the certificate that is visible in a user transcript? But when creating the certificate, the placement of the name field is centered. Am I doing something wrong?Name field added under “manage certificates”
Hi All,Curious regarding your content you are creating for your learners. Does anyone who may have training courses on their product, do you make these courses interactive? Meaning the learner “performs the task” within your course as if they were doing so within the application or platform? If so, how are you managing this?We recently received some feedback that our learners would like hands-on, pretending to do the task. Any information or feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!Courtney
Long Learning Paths
How do you build out your long learning paths? We have some that require 20+ pieces of content, so we’re looking to make them into a list view. When we do that any thumbnails are still brought into that view, which makes it still long. The only way to make this manageable is to remove the thumbnails to all the individual pieces of content, but then the beauty of that timeline view and any imagery is gone. Has anyone come up with a way of building out a loooong LP while still maintaining a visual page?
Managing entry to webinars
Hello TI Community!I have a question related to webinar integrations.We plan to make use of various TI webinar integrations (primarily Zoom, Adobe Connect and hopefully MS Teams). One thing we are struggling with is around how to prevent the webinar links from being shared beyond our approved attendees. When someone registers and receives the event confirmation/ calendar link email from TI they contain direct links to the webinar room and theoretically these could be forwarded to other people (who aren’t approved/registered users) which would enable them to gain access to the session. Sometimes we have 500+ attendees so we can’t necessarily implement the features some webinar platforms have where you can place all attendees in a waiting room and admit them manually.Has anyone identified any workable options to manage this?Many thanks,Caroline @ Mastercard Academy
Success with Alchemer Surveys?
I’m wondering if anyone has had success integrating an Alchemer survey into a course? We can link to the survey easily enough, and the learner can take the survey. The problem is that taking the survey is a completion criteria for CE credit for the course. After completing the survey, TI does not record the course as complete in the learner record. Whether it’s an issue with what Alchemer is sending or what TI is receiving, we don’t know. We’ve tried to get help from Support and through the Development team, with no luck at all. I’d love to see if others are having success with Alchemer this way.
Learner Notification for Content/Learning Path
When setting up a learner notification using the type “Content/Learning Path(s)” Notification type -I want all content included from 1 specific Content Type (Online courses) - is there any way to choose all of those courses easily?Currently when we click “all content” - it is including our ILT (in-person event) learners as well, and the emails that go to online course learners do not match what our in-person learners should be getting.I’m hoping that I’m missing something obvious - Thanks for any assistance!
Considering using Helium for your Thought Industries Deployment?
Hi I was wondering is anybody is looking at using Helium for there Thought Industries Deployment? I have been engaged with Thought Industries as to how I may be able to use Helium to develop our Catalog and several other pages or content types, this is going to be a project that will take some time to achieve, and may even result in sticking with our current setup, and so I am keen to know if others here our considering it? and if so, how are you considering its use?
Learning Path run date?
Hello friends!After this week’s Office Hours, I was inspired to create some learning paths! I have something showing up that is confusing and not needed - can anyone help me figure out what this is? & if I can remove it? I looked through Translations and couldn’t find this particular line.
ILT - Add Virtual Meeting Page Type?
Is it possible to upload a virtual meeting page type to an ILT?We have to individually create the pre and post content for each VILT associated with our certification courses since you cannot copy a VILT.I saw you can copy and ILT though…. and if we could add a virtual meeting page time (and import the meeting from Zoom) - this will solve all my problems. Sessions will not work with our use case in VILTs…Any suggestions or best practices here?
Content modification History
Hello,I am reviewing some content (webinars, courses..) and I would like to see the modification history with dates and names. Does anyone know where I can see this? I could not find anything in the courses themselves, and I tried to report but the “author” field did not give me any result.I shoudl be able to go into a course and have a section where I can see when it was created, by whom and the history of all the changes that happened after that with the names.Anyone has any idea where I can see that?
Virtual Parking Lot
We need a "virtual parking lot" solution within a course. A place for learners to post questions/comments that is visible to the instructor and other learners. Needs to be in a prominent place, such as the Utilities menu on the left. Does anyone do something like this or have any ideas?(Note: We’ve considered using discussions but find that the placement isn’t prominent enough (either as a page in the course or at the bottom of the page...we really want something on the top and/or left side))TIA!
