Create an External Learning

This guide will show Admins how to create an External Learning for a user. It will also show users how to create External Learnings for themselves via the 'Training History' tab on the My Learning page.

External Learnings are a way to track training completed externally, so that this training can be reported on in the LMS. If you are unable to find the External Learning page, please contact support to turn the feature on.

 

Creating an External Learning for yourself (All Users):

1. Navigate to your 'Training History' page by clicking My Learning > Training History.

    Great functionality.  just wondering if there a way to manage/update the "Learning Type" list.  It would also be great if this function had "supervisor approval workflow" attached to it for validation.  Alternatively, there could be a config option restrict who has access to it.

    Hi Darijo,

    At the moment, we can handle the "Learning Type" list for you. But, we are working on making this functionality available to Administrators. Stay tuned!

    Supervisor approval workflows or restrictions on who can add external learning are features not available at this time but they are good ideas. I'll be sure to keep you updated if we are planning on these features!
