Find out more about Reactions

 

Reactions allow platform users to give their opinion on the course activities.

  

🤓 Reactions are integral to the platform. Therefore, it's not possible to delete or customize them. 

 

 

Analyze the social usage of Reactions

Reactions are action-oriented. For instance, the "this is outdated" Reaction helps you focus on the documents you need to update for business relevance. 

Therefore, it's important for you to track down the number of Reactions per course. 

To monitor Reactions: 

  1. On the Homepage, click Dashboard
  2. Click Courses
  3. Select a course
  4. On the right-hand side, click the chart icon
  5. Head over to the Cheatsheets and Documents section 
  6. If you need to, you can export the detailed analysis by clicking the download icon

 


Find out more about the Relevance Score

After playing a course, Learners are asked in one click whether the course was or was not useful to them. 

The results of this survey give a Relevance Score for the course, which you can find on the course statistics page. The Relevance Score percentage is computed on the number of learners who answered the course was useful, compared to the number of learners who answered the survey.

To disable the forum:

  4. Click General Settings
  5. Head over to the Boost Engagement > Forum section, and click Disable
