Training Launch Enhancements - Overview

Prior to this enhancement, when a learner viewed training from any browsing page and the training did not require approval, the Register option would be the primary action available for the training. This required the learner to first request and then register for the training before being able to launch it. When a learner accessed training that did require approval, the user was required to request the training, wait for approval, then register for the training before being able to launch it.

With this enhancement, when a learner views training from any browsing page and the training does not require approval, the Launch option will display as the primary action available for the training. If approval is required for a training item, the user will see the Request option, but then after the training is approved, the Launch option will be the next available action. Removing the Register option from the training access workflow helps users obtain training faster and more efficiently. In addition, when a learner launches training from any page, the page from which they accessed the training does NOT redirect to the learning transcript. The page from which the user accessed the training remains open, allowing them to continue browsing training without interruption.

Considerations

This updated training launch behavior applies to training on all of the following system pages:

  • Learner Home
  • Learner Search
  • Playlist
  • Learning Details page (applies to both new and legacy)
  • Welcome Page
  • Transcript

If no approvals are required and no cost is associated with training accessed from any of the above pages, the primary action available for the training item is Launch.

The updated launch redirect behavior applies to unassigned materials, online courses, and quick courses accessed from the following system areas:

  • Learner Home
  • Learning Search
  • Playlists
  • Learning Details (both the legacy version and the redesigned version)

For tests that are launched from any of the following locations but not completed, the learner will be directed back to the Launch page when they exit and save:

Welcome Page

  • Transcript
  • Transcript Details
  • Learning Details (both the legacy version and the redesigned version)
  • Learner Home
  • Learning Search
  • Playlists
