How Oracle University Training on Demand integrates into the red stack Part 1-2: Connect with Peoplesoft ELM 9.2
By Volkere-Oracle on Apr 14, 2014
In the next step we are going to prepare PeopleSoft ELM 9.2 to get ready for the Training On Demand content. Before this just let me give you a couple of notes about Training on Demand (ToD) licensing which you need to know prior to setup a course and assign a class to ELM learners.
Oracle Training on Demand comes with a time-restricted named-user license. For each ToD course registration Oracle University will send out a welcome letter to the course participant. With this email letter an authorization link will be send as well as the start and end date for the subscription period. The ToD participant will become a user of Oracle ecosphere means he needs to register for a oracle.com login name and password. This will be his/her Training on Demand identity. The learner will get access to the Training on Demand class for 90 days max.
Furthermore all ToD functions like video control, instructor Q&A or self-reporting are "in-app" means there will be no interaction with the PeopleSoft ELM 9.2 hosting the Training on Demand class. For further information about Oracle University Training on Demand terms and conditions please refer to http://education.oracle.com.
So what we do now is to create or maintain a course which allows an ELM learner to access a web based class for 90 days. These are the parameters we have to setup in PeopleSoft ELM 9.2.
1. Open the ELM learning dash board and go to Main Menu->Enterprise Learning->Catalog->Maintain Classes. Add new course and assign course details and attributes like this:
2. Next in the maintain course menue go to ->Maintaing Delivery Methods to maintain/create a class for this new course. Add all necessary informations as you would do for a standard class.
For this specific Training on Demand class:
2.1. Under ->Class Details->General Information make sure that START DATE and END DATE corresponds to the access period mentioned in the ToD activation email letter.
2.2. Under ->Class Details->Learning Period Days type in "90" and you may want to send a "end-of-class" warning to the delegate after "70" days or so.
You may need to add a pubished duration and a reminder, but you must limit the number of attendees to 1.
2.3 Under ->Class Details->Enrollment set MaxEnrollment to 1 and check
3. When you have finished all additions to the class details as approbiate move to ->Maintan Delivery Methods->Learning Components.
3.1. Add Component and select WEB BASED - LEARNING PROVIDED THROUGH THE WEB
3.2. On the next screen ->add new learning component->web based component choose your component name and check VENDOR under provider type.
3.3. Under Compliance and Technical Data check Compliance = NONE (since Oracle University's Training on Demand is neither SCORM nor AICC compatible)
3.4. Under Compliance and Technical Data fill in the completete authorization link provided by the email letter and save your entries.
Finally you can continue all the learner group specific tasks, so that the individual learner can access his personal web based Training on Demand class.
