Search Training Pop-up

The Search Training pop-up is used when a user can select learning objects (LOs). The pop-up enables users to search for and select multiple LOs. Note: In some instances, the Search Training pop-up is also used when only a single LO should be selected. In these situations, only one LO can be selected, and the selection is made by clicking the LO title. The Search and Selected tabs do not appear because they are not applicable.

Training Search

LOs can be searched by LO title and keyword. LOs can also be filtered by training type.

To search within all available LOs, enter search terms in the What would you like to search for? field and click the Search button. The available LOs that match the criteria are displayed. If no search terms are entered when the Search button is clicked, then the pop-up displays all available LOs.

Training Type Filter

The Training Types filter enables users to filter the search results by training type. Only LOs with the selected training types are included in the search results.

To filter by training type, click the drop-down menu and select all of the appropriate training types. Select the All Training option to include all training types in the search results. After making the appropriate selections, click the Search button to filter the search results. The results are not updated until the Search button is clicked. If no training types are selected, then the system searches across all training types. The administrator can configure which training types are available in Search Preferences. See Search Preferences - Training.

Refine Search

The Refine Search options enable users to refine their search by LO description and language. To refine the search, click the Refine Search link. This expands the Refine Search area, and the following options may be available:

  • Description - This field enables users to search LO descriptions for matching text. In the field, enter text to search within LO descriptions. The search will only return LOs that have a description that match the specified search terms.
  • Language - This field enables users to filter LOs by language. From the drop-down menu, select all of the appropriate languages. The search will only return LOs that are associated with the selected languages. If no languages are selected, then the search results are not filtered by LO language.

Search Results

The search results are displayed after the user clicks the Search button. The results are sorted based on their rank, with the closest matches displayed first. Only LOs that are available to the user are displayed. The following information may be displayed for each LO:

  • LO Type - The icon to the left of the title indicates the LO type (e.g., event, curriculum, library).
  • LO Title
  • Training Subtype - For materials and postings, the LO subtype is displayed.
  • Provider/Vendor
  • Training Hours
  • Duration - The LO duration only displays for LOs when a duration is set for the LO.
  • Price - The LO price only displays when pricing is enabled for the portal. If training units are applicable, the training unit price is also displayed.
  • Description - Up to two lines of the description are displayed. If the description contains HTML, the HTML is not applied within the pop-up.
