- After the Express Class has been submitted, the material is created and added to Material Administration and the Course Catalog, but by default it is NOT searchable in system areas such as Global Search and Learning Search. The material is, however, searchable and available to select when adding training to another Express Class.
- Because materials created via Express Class do not have a source, they are not launchable on users' transcripts. The ability to create materials via Express Class is intended to be used as a method of quickly giving users credit for training that does not yet exist in the Course Catalog.
New training created via Express Class (materials) do not generate a course code.
After either selecting an existing training item or creating a new training item, populate the following additional general information for the Express Class:
- Completion Time - In the Completion Time section, select the date of the training completion from the date field, and then select the completion time of the training from the time drop-down menu. This field is required.
- Time Zone - From the Time Zone field, select the time zone in which the training was completed. This field is required.
After populating at least the required fields on the General Information page, click the See Create Express Class - Attendees.button to advance to the Attendees step.
Express Classes can be created in-browser on mobile devices. The process for creating the Express Class and the available fields are the same, but the display is optimized for mobile devices.
