Curriculum Player Checkbox Selected by Default - Overview

The Curriculum Player allows users to launch and complete training within a curriculum using a modern and intuitive user interface. The Curriculum Player guides users through the curriculum sections and allows users to track their progress. Administrators have the option of enabling the Curriculum Player experience for users during the curriculum creation process.

Prior to this enhancement, the Curriculum Player option available during the curriculum creation process was NOT selected by default. To enable this option for a curriculum, the administrator was required to select the checkbox for it.

With this enhancement, the Curriculum Player option available during the curriculum creation process IS selected by default. This means the Curriculum Player experience will be enabled for all curricula created after the February 2021 release unless the administrator deselects the checkbox next to the Curriculum Player option. Enabling the Curriculum Player by default makes it easier for organizations to deliver a superior learning experience to users consuming curricula in the system.

Implementation

This functionality is enabled be default in all portals using the Learning module.

Considerations

This enhancement is not retroactive. Curricula created prior to the February 2021 release are not impacted.

Permissions

The following existing permissions apply to this functionality:

PERMISSION NAME PERMISSION DESCRIPTION CATEGORY
Curricula Admin - Manage

Grants ability to create new and edit/update existing curricula. This permission can be constrained by OU, User's OU, Provider, and User's LO Availability. This is an administrator permission.

Adding an OU constraint and a provider constraint to this permission results in an "AND" statement.

Tip: Do not constrain this permission to your entire corporation; it can cause long page load times and timeout errors. Applying this constraint is functionally the same as leaving the permission unconstrained, but omitting this constraint does not cause the system to do the unnecessary constraint checks as in the former scenario.

Learning - Administration
Curriculum Player Options Grants ability to enable Curriculum Player feature via the General step when creating or editing a curriculum. This permission cannot be constrained. This is an administrator permission. Learning - Administration
