From the Record of Learning menu you can also access your Learning plans, Required Learning, and Record of Learning from the sideblock.

A summary of the learning plan including the due date and progress status is displayed.

Record of Learning

Your Record of Learning displays evidence, competencies, objectives and programs, along with certifications that you have completed or are currently completing.

If a user does not have any records in the Competencies, Objectives, Programs, or Certifications sections then the tab will not show; the Other Evidence tab is always visible.

The records are separated into one of the following:

  • All Learning displays all results.
  • Active Learning displays only current results.
  • Completed Learning displays completed results and course progress for unenrolled courses.

When courses, programs and certifications are visible to all users, at the point the user is enrolled or assigned, a record is created in their Record of Learning. Once a user has made progress this item will be kept and displayed as a permanent record in their Record of Learning, regardless of visibility settings.

Required Learning

All your learning assigned to you through Programs or Certifications are displayed with a summary of your progress displayed.

Audience visibility

Whether or not audience visibility is turned on for a course, program, or certification will affect how it is presented in the record of learning. 

With audience visibility turned off:

  • Course: Any assigned users will see the course greyed out in their record of learning. They will also be unable to access the course by clicking it. 
  • Program/Certification: Any user assigned to the program will see the it in their record of learning. They can see the program content when clicked.

With audience visibility turned on:

  • Course: If the course is set to No users, then anyone assigned to the course won't see it in their record of learning or required learning. They also can't access it via the URL.
  • Program/Certification: If the program is set to No users, then any assigned users won't see it in their record of learning or required learning.
