This glossary describes key concepts and terminology used throughout 360Learning. If you're looking for help getting started with 360Learning, take a look at our other Getting started articles.
A user who can connect to the platform.
The types of activities you can create are the building blocks of courses in 360Learning. Each activity is an individual frame within a course.
- Cheat sheets
Local role (but used to be global role):
- Create courses and program templates
- Track the statistics of the courses they created
- Edit the courses and program templates they created
It is a constituent element of a program. A block can be an e-learning module, a classroom (virtual or onsite), an evaluation, or an email.
It is an "e-learning" type block that was produced with the 360Learning authoring tool (therefore does not apply to SCORMs).
Course in Learning mode
The correction is displayed after the learner has answered, as well as the discussion forum.
Course in Training mode
The user only sees the correction and the forum once he has reached the end of the module
Course in Evaluation mode
The learner has only one attempt and must finish the module in one go. He only sees the correction and forum once he has reached the end of the course. If we define a score to be achieved and the course is directly followed by certifications, the learner will not receive these certifications in the event of failure.
In evaluation mode and in training mode, a learner can go back to the questions in the course and change their answers until they have completed the course.
Percentage of learners who completed a course started in the last 12 months.
Delete an account
Although it is labeled as “Deletion”, it is actually a deactivation (we keep the account data to keep the stats of the courses, this also allows accounts to be reactivated if necessary).
A program is "finished" when:
- The end date has been reached (wording "closed program" currently under consideration)
- The user has followed it until its end
Group coach: local role (group)
- Create program sessions and track their statistics
- Invite learners and groups to these sessions
- Interact with them in forums
Third party applications that offer user and learning statistics synchronization with 360Learning.
Platform feature, allowing a user to request learning content (course, path or program).
Can see the statistics of another member. A learner can be a manager
A section in the dashboard focusing on learning statistics for the managees of the connected user.
All users of the platform are called members.
The chronological timeline of events happening in a group. Events can be posts, comments, or new learning content.
An ongoing program can refer to a program assigned to a learner or a group, or simply to a program which started but has not reached its end date.
When the learner registers himself to the program (as opposed to when it is the trainer who proceeds to the registration of the learner or one of his groups).
A learner who started the training (started = click on "start" in the first module).
Percentage of learners who have started a course to which they have been invited during the last 12 months.
Percentage of certificates obtained within closed courses during the last 12 months (closed courses = courses that have ended).
A path is a training object containing steps, with a focus on flexibility. Steps can be courses, classrooms, other paths, programs, or assessments.
A program is a training object containing steps, with a focus on linearity and repeatability.
See: https://support.360learning.com/hc/en-us/articles/4411243157396 to help choose between Paths and Programs.
After completing a course, users are able to leave feedback on a course by selecting one of the following reactions: I like it, I learned something, This is outdated, I didn't get it. The reactions can then be viewed under the course statistics.
Refers to a member of the platform (therefore it does not apply to pending invitations sent by email)
Learner, Author, Admin, and Owner: different roles a member can have (note that a member can have different roles in different groups).
Can mean one of two things:
- A session is a program happening in a defined time range.
- A browser session is a continuous period of connection to the platform.
Session Instructor: not a role, any member can be a session instructor.
- Can edit session he has access to but cannot create new ones.
A program is "validated" when:
- The learner has 100% completion rate in the program
- All validation blocks of the program have been validated by the instructor
- for any course in Evaluation mode:
- The learner didn't quit the course before the end
- The learner reached the minimum score.
The other modes (Training, Learning, and Challenge) require 100% completion for program validation.
