Adding a User Hosted Courses (UHC) to a Personalized Learning Path
This enhancement enables users and Training Administrators to create a new course definition that is defined by a url link to a course or content that exists outside of the Bentley LEARN Server system. Once created, these UHCs may be added and sequenced in a personalized LP in exactly the same manner as Bentley Institute courses can be sequenced within a personalized learning path.
Potential Uses for a UHC
1) Customized follow-up content: e.g., a CAD manager wants to have their engineering team complete a group of courses on a common subject. They build a custom learning path for that. But they also need their engineers to all follow the same workflow in storing those files in a customized ProjectWise server implementation using company specific project codes. They can add a UHC at the end of their custom learning path to have the engineers watch a video (served from their internal network, YouTube, or anywhere else) that explains those details. The UHC feature gives the Training Admin a way to include this content in their learning path.
2) Customized Assessments: A company wants to have their employees complete a customized company assessment after completing the courses in a Learning Path, or after sections of a Learning Path, they can create an internal assessment and host it where it is convenient for them. A custom learning path with a UHC that points to the assessment lets their training administrator present these as a seamless part of the personalized learning path that they assign to their users.
3) Completely customized content: A company has customized “add-on” tools for MicroStation (or another Bentley software product). They need to include some training for these tools in the middle of their personalized MicroStation (or another) learning path. They hire a consultant who creates a SCORM conformant course, and it is hosted in their “cloud-based” learning management system. They can use a UHC to include that course in their personalized learning path.
