Now, you’ve got your company set up on the Upskill People Learning Platform, it’s time to think about your workforce. You might be thinking, “Wow, there are a lot of courses here, will I have to assign them all to my learners one by one? Who has time for that?!”
No-one, that’s who. It’s why we’ve made a way to group the courses together, so they can be assigned to lots of people in one go!
From the Manage courses menu, pick Group courses into learning profiles:
… and it looks like this:
Each group of courses is called a Learning Profile. Begin by expanding the Learning Profile List and checking which groups have already been created. Checking what you already have will make sure you don’t make the same user profiles twice, which could clutter up your searches later. Plus, it saves you precious time when you don’t have to create a new profile, as one already exists and just needs some editing!
Using the dropdown tab at the top of the list you can see more on a single page, or use ‘Next’ to move between pages.
However, if you need to create a new Learning Profile, begin by selecting Add Learning Profile:
You will then give two descriptions of this new profile: the Learning Profile Description and the Alternative Learning Profile Description. These two descriptions look and sound the same, right? That’s because they basically are the same! You don’t need to worry too much about this, you can just copy and paste the same description into both boxes.
After you’ve done this, you can ignore the User Profile Default tick box, and then use the Assign Job Types table to join the job type you’re working on to its relevant learning profile, which will save you so much time going forward.
Select Save to create your shiny new learning profile! As time goes by, you can update these profiles using one of these two methods:
- Using Assign User Profiles to Course is perfect for just one course, but can be quite long-winded if there’s lots to get through.
- You can use Assign Courses to Learning Profile to shorten the process dramatically and assign a new course to all of your learners under that learning profile.
And that’s it! By the end of this process, you’ll be assigning your learners whole modules of new courses with just a few clicks, leaving you to focus on your business, and not your admin!
So, you’ve got your company and your courses together, there’s just one more thing to sort out now. The lucky souls who’ll be taking those courses! After you learn to manage your learners, you’ll have well and truly begun your journey with the Upskill People Learning Platform, so let’s get started, shall we?
