LMS Roadmap: New Student and Manager Workflow

1/30/2018 - Posted by Brooke Oprsal

Your monthly update by Brooke Oprsal on some of our activities regarding the LatitudeLearning LMS product. We started the New Year by rolling out a brand New Student/Manager Workflow. You’ll find a much simpler, cleaner look to the user interface, when accessing pages from the navigation icon. The purpose of this enhancement was to make the Student & Manager experience much more user friendly, and less complex. You will find the left navigation bar has been removed, the titles are bigger, and the page descriptions have been removed. The legacy pages are still available, when navigating from the legacy home page. Administrators will be able to access the legacy left-hand navigation, through the gear-shift icon in the header.


LMS Roadmap: My Messages Pages in the new UI

12/20/2017 - Posted by Brooke Oprsal

Coming at the end of this month, the “What’s New” and My Messages pages will be released in the new UI. The “What’s New” page will allow Portal Administrators to present custom content to their end users, including content tailored by Organization and Position Branding Tools. Additionally, the “What’s New” page will also be added as a drop down option on the LMS information page, and can be selected as the Login Landing Page, as well as Courses to Complete. The My Messages page will also be updated and available in the new UI. It will follow the same styling as the other new pages in the New UI.


LMS Roadmap: New Header, Updates to LMS Information Page and Multi-Select

11/21/2017 - Posted by Brooke Oprsal

To kick off the roll out of our New User Interface (UI), we have released a brand new LMS Header. This feature brings a fresh look and feel to the product, and introduces users to the icon-based design they can expect to find throughout the new LMS Experience. For users who participate in training activities across multiple organizations, the header also provides a streamlined way to Switch Profiles.

LMS Roadmap: New Reporting Engine

10/23/2017 - Posted by Brooke Oprsal

LatitudeLearning is empowering Portal Administrators with a flexible new report writer tool, allowing them to create, organize, share, and execute custom reports. Extract the exact Course Transcript or Training Goal data you want from the LMS by defining a list of report criteria and result columns. Then name the report, save it to a folder, and run it any time.


LMS Roadmap: Audience and Unlimited Enrollment

7/20/2017 - Posted by Tom Merritt

Two recent LatitudeLearning enhancements improve the system’s ability to dynamically manage users who meet certain criteria and enroll large groups of users: Audience and Unlimited Enrollments. An Audience is a collection of users who meet certain criteria: they all have a specific set of job functions, they are all part of a specific organizational unit (or units), or they may have all completed certain training curriculums. Unlimited enrollments is a new approach for enrolling large collections of users via an offline process.


LMS Roadmap: Student UI Prototype & New Admin Functionality

6/23/2017 - Posted by Tom Merritt

Last month we launched a click-through prototype to illustrate our design concepts for a new student experience with the LMS. You can see our approach to the next generation UI for the LMS: an extended use of icons, a completely new and refreshing approach to page layout and a responsive design that we think our clients will really appreciate. In addition, we have just completed a revision of some of the administrative interface. Some of our clients had informed us that they wanted to delegate more day-to-day management to the administrator role instead of having the portal administrator do all the work. To accomplish this, we implemented a new approach for several tools in the system, including Changing Quick User Search, Change the "Deactivate" button and Pre-populate the advanced user search page.

LMS Roadmap: New UI based on icons and responsive design

4/20/2017 - Posted by Tom Merritt

This monthly series will keep you informed on improvements and future enhancements that will make your LMS experience even more powerful. We have moved to an “open development” methodology, where we make clear to our clients what we’re working on. This means you can have a say in what is done and how it is done. Each enhancement being worked on has a due date, and each proposed enhancement has a “likes” rating, which determines the order in which it will be worked on.

LMS Roadmap: Refinements to Course Topics, Keyword Search and Move Enrollments

3/23/2017 - Posted by Tom Merritt

This monthly series will keep you informed on improvements and future enhancements that will make your LMS experience even more powerful. 

Recent product enhancements: Course topics provide a browsable hierarchy of course categories, or topics, so users can browse the course catalog by topic instead of searching for keyword matches. Each topic can be subordinated to other topics, so you can have different branches for any subject. Moreover, if a course is associated with a topic at the bottom of the tree, it will show up when you are browsing at the top of the tree as well. This is an ideal way to provide your students access to the course catalog based on categories of subject matter content. All they need to do is browse! The switch to turn on Course Topics is located on the LMS Information page.

LMS Roadmap: portal administrator to display specific branded homepage based on position code

2/21/2017 - Posted by Tom Merritt

Hello again from Latitude R&D. This is Tom Merritt with a monthly update on some of our activities regarding the LMS.
To date, when a portal administrator wanted users at a certain location to see specific branding, he or she could set up branding by location stylesheets and HTML content. However, they couldn’t go any further in terms of branding by organization.
