New functionality in Oracle Learning Management

In OLM 12.1.3 we have added two new important functions:

Easier management of enrollments

A new pop up window appears on the Enrollments page when an administrator moves the mouse over one of the learners enrolled in a class. The pop up window serves as a quick interface to view and edit data about the learner and enrollment.
The following information is available: picture of the learner; learner name; enrollment number; enrollment status; reason for change; successful attendance and attendance result.
Most information in the pop up window can be changed by the administrator.

Overview of classes belonging to a course
A pop up window appears on the catalog page when an administrator moves the mouse over one of the courses listed on the page.
Here the administrator can view: General information about the course; aggregate information about all classes for the course and information about individual classes for the course.

These two functions are part of the effort to add pop up windows wherever it makes sense throughout all of the eBS modules.


Thanks, Anders! Those two functions help reduce the number of clicks necessary to get quick information and I've received good feedback from clients on them so far. Anne

Hi Felicia, Interesting comment - even if I'm not sure exactly what you mean :-) I'm intrigued to know why you think adding pop-up screens would be selling out? Our intention is to make it easier for the administrator to do her daily job and hopefully we have succeded in that. Going for a more commercial feel..... The product is a commercial program, so I guess having a commercial feel is OK? Anyway - within the boundariers of belonging to a suite of programs, we try to make it as "natural" as possible for the users to use the program, and this means using the features and functions the user is used to, and this includes pop-up windows - anything wrong with that? Regards Anders

Hi Anders, Our training team are still reluctant to use Learning Administrator new self service style web pages as they do not have the folder functionality they get in the core application (old OTA forms). For example they have a default folder view of all upcoming classes, with how many places are left in each etc. Will we see any functionality like this in future OLM releases (much like what has been done with the front page of iRecruitment). Regards Chris

Hi Chris, We don't have exactly what you are looking for, but something along the same lines. You can use the pop-up screen described in the article. By just moving your mouse over any course in the catalog you get an instance overview of all classes for this course, the number of total free seats and the number of attendees and max seats for each individual class. This, for instance, helps you get a quick overview of where to focus your attention of filling up our classrooms. Regards Anders

Thanks Anders, that is a helpful tip and very useful if you know what Course you are looking for. I still think you are missing the crucial day to day functionality a Learning Administrator needs to perform their job effectively. Our use of folders in OTA (simple query on Learner Enrollments -Search fro a class - (trunc (sysdate) <= COURSE_START_DATE )really pushed to the user what classes the Learning Administrator should be reviewing. It would be a shame if similar functionality was not being looked at. Regards Chris
