  • Courses that need your attention: courses with a Reaction Score below 50, that have 10 or more views, ordered by increasing reaction score.

If the first or second section has no course with matching criteria, it is hidden.

The chosen group is the newest biggest group that is closest to the platform group, where the user is at least Coach, and where Learning Needs is activated and the maximum number of Learning Needs is not reached.

Paths removed from profiles

We decided not to display the list of earned Paths in users profile page anymore. Although this usually serves as a nice display of achievements, it could also create GDPR awkwardness.

  • Visual update of the Classroom block in the session edition page.
  • Visual update of the Project interface.
  • When ordering courses by ascending Reaction score, courses that havenโ€™t been played yet (with value -) are always at the bottom, so that courses with an actual low value are displayed first.
  • Internet Explorer users now have a page explaining that we donโ€™t support their browser, instead of a plain blank page โ€” which seemed too harsh.
  • Learners who register to a session with a Classroom block from the Catalog now receive a calendar invitation by email.

    • Most Relevant
    • Most Recent/Oldest
    • Most Upvotes
    • Most Comments

Sales Enablement Solution

  • Managers can assess Pitches: like what is currently possible with Assessment steps, you will be able to assign Managers as evaluators for Video Pitch and Screen Recording questions. This will allow you to decentralize learning to the people who know the team best! 

๐Ÿ’ก This development also means that you will be able to assign Managers as evaluators of open questions.  

 

Globalization Solution

  • Translations Available in the Catalog: any course translation available via the Globalization Solution will also be featured in the relevant language filter. 

Curated Programs

  • Admins will be able to explore, choose and enable off-the-shelf content libraries from a new Marketplace available from the general platform settings.

Previous releases

    Authoring Tool

    • Paths: up until now, only Admins could create and edit Paths. To empower local experts, Authors will also be able to edit/add steps to a Path. 

    Learning Analytics

    • Paths: a few weeks ago, we released a whole new set of Paths statistics. These weren't exportable just yet. You will be able to download Paths statistics from the Dashboard. The CSV export will include the following fields:
      • First name
      • Last name
      • email
      • progress
      • status
      • score
      • relative due date 

    360Learning for Enterprise

    • Reorganize Tasks: squad members can create, assign and check on tasks within a project. They expect to be able to easily reorganize them as the project evolves. With the update, squad members will be able to drag and drop any task within a project. 
    • Edit Tasks: users can only create, assign and delete tasks. They can't edit an existing task within a project. With this update, squad members will be able to edit any task within a project to keep up with the latest updates. 
    • Link a Path to a project: in addition to linking courses, programs, and other learning needs, squad members will be able to attach Paths into a training project. 

    Sales Enablement

    • 360Learning App for Salesforce: Sales Enablement is all about reaching Sales Reps at the right time with relevant content to help them win more deals. We're releasing a 360Learning App for Salesforce that will recommend relevant training items on each Salesforce Opportunity. Feel free to reach out to the team for more information! 
    • Invite coaches to share best pitch examples: Expertise sharing from top performers is key in helping your team level up and eventually, win more deals. To do so, admins will be prompted to share video pitches with an average score of 4,5/5 or more to the team via the coaching interface. 

    Globalization

    • Internal Collaboration for Translators: Translators will be able to post internal comments in the forum of the course they're working on.

  • ๐Ÿ’ป Web Version

    Learning Content

    • Blended Learning: when creating a new Classroom block via the program template editor, you will be able to fill in 1 new field:
      • Training objectives (text field)
    • Paths
      • Relative Due Dates: you will be able to set a Relative Due Date on a Path's step. This option will automatically compute the availability of the step based on the enrollment date.  In other words, you won't have to set the availability date of the step (D+1, D+2... after enrollment) manually. Relative Due Dates are optional and indicative: Learners will still be able to access the step even if they're late to the step. Finally, you will be able to set Relative Due Dates on new and existing Paths. This opens a whole new set of statistics on Paths. In the Dashboard, you will be able to see at a glance which Learners are falling behind on their learning journey. Please note: you will only be able to download these statistics starting March 31st. 

    Learning Analytics

    • Learner's Score on Paths: in the Dashboard, you will be able to access a Learner's score on a Path. The data will be available on a Path page, and also from users/groups menus in the Dashboard. The score will be based on the average score of each completed step:
      • If the step is a course: the score will be based on the course's score
      • If the step is a program: the score will be based on the number of courses in the session and the best score amongst all attempts.  
      • If the step is a path: the Dashboard will feature the path's score. 

    360Learning for Enterprise

    • Delete a project: squad members will be able to delete the project by accessing the options in the collaboration interface. 
    • Name a project from the management interface: when creating a new module via the project, you are unable to give it a name. You have to go into the authoring tool and access the course settings. You will be able to name the course directly when you add it to the project. 
    • New platform prompt: best practices from top project management suggest that communicating with the team as soon as the project starts increases team performance. We're putting our own 360Learning spin on it by preparing a pre-comment draft, ready to use as soon as you launch the project. The message reads as follows: 
      • title: Kick off the project! ๐Ÿš€
      • title: "[@project member 1] [@project member 2] [@project member ...] Welcome to the project! Next steps are ..."

    Collaborative Activity

    • Reactions Score: meet the Reactions Score! In the Dashboard, you will be able to see which course needs your attention the most (for example: give additional information to Learners or update documents) via a Score computed on the number of Reactions. This score ranges from -100 to 100. We compute it as follows: (total of positive Reactions) - (total of negative Reactions) / (total number of played courses and activities). The Dashboard will highlight courses with the lowest score. 
    • UX/UI: comments will be made via a pop-up window

    Globalization

    • Statistics breakdown: since last December, 360Learning is helping you address the challenges of multilingual training management with our Globalization solution. With this update, you will be able to easily access detailed statistics for each translation. No more navigating across various tabs and courses to export all the stats for a program distributed in several languages! Contact us to find out how 360Learning can help you address the challenges of managing international training projects.

    • Learning Need: you will be able to find the declaration date of the Learning Need in the feed. 

    Collaboration

    • Feedback Inbox: the Feedback Inbox centralizes pending comments on your courses and helps you get back to them more efficiently. This new version makes it easier to switch between activities.

    • Feature removal:  the Reactions bar features 5 types of Reactions: I like it/ I learned something / This is outdated / I didn't get it / I disagree. To streamline the types of Reactions, we're removing the "I disagree" reaction type. Reactions computed for the "I disagree" type of feedback will be re-computed into the "I didn't get it" type of feedback". This change also applies to mobile apps. 

    Sales Enablement

When instructors receive an open question, they will be able to review it and ask the Learner to send a new attempt. Instructors will have to ask for a new attempt before correcting the question.

    • Authoring tool:
      • Cheatsheets: copying-and-pasting Web-based content into the text editor usually copies the style of the element. Now, the copy-paste ignores the style of the background to avoid reworking. 
      • Mark Path steps as optional: you will be able to mark steps as optional from the Path's settings. Learners will complete the Path upon playing all mandatory steps. Optional steps will be visible from the Path's description.
