ENHANCEMENT: The Navigation Page Editor
2/13/2018 - Posted by Jill Schultz

The LatitudeLearning LMS provides Portal Administrators a Navigation Page Editor, a flexible and easy-to-use tool for managing the visibility and display order of the icons on the Navigation Page. Hiding icons or changing their display order is as simple as drag and drop, making it a snap to further customize the user experience for your organization!


ENHANCEMENT: Define Your LMS Home Page
1/16/2018 - Posted by Sarah Robinson

On January 21, 2018, LatitudeLearning will release a simplified Student and Manager Workflow from the Navigation page, accessed via the header grid  icon. The Legacy LMS experience will remain intact for existing clients. By empowering Portal Administrators with Home Page and Login Landing Page controls under Site Management > LMS Information, system administrators can choose when to launch the New UI experience to their end users.


ENHANCEMENT: Simplified Student, Manager Workflow from Navigation Page
1/16/2018 - Posted by Sarah Robinson

We streamlined the Student and Manager Workflow from the Navigation menu by creating simpler, sleeker LMS pages for each icon. Click the header grid   icon to access new pages that function exactly as their classic counterparts, but do not include the "My Learning Center" menu, navigation tabs, or page descriptions. System and training administrators continue to access their legacy features via a new Administration page that provides the standard "My Learning Center" menu. Once a user lands on the Administration or Classic Home page, they will once again enter the Legacy LMS experience. Lastly, a "Home Page" configuration option has been added to the LMS Information page, allowing Portal Administrators to implement a custom workflow on demand.

1/2/2018 - Posted by Sarah Robinson

Return from the holidays to discover new LMS features, including advanced configuration options and sleek new pages. As always, we will provide Release Notes and Support Documentation for all product enhancements scheduled to release on Sunday, January 7. In the meantime, here's a sneak peak at what you'll find in the next enhancement bundle.


User Search Employs Type-Ahead, Multi-Select Technologies
11/13/2017 - Posted by Sarah Robinson

The User Search tool has been enhanced with type-ahead technology, replacing drop down menus and data pickers with a smart text field that will provide data matches as you type in real time. Administrators can now apply multiple filter values to each search criterion as well, making it easier to define audiences, target users for announcements, and batch enroll others.


LMS Report Writer for Portal Administrators
9/25/2017 - Posted by Sarah Robinson

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.


Using the Reporting Engine to Run and Manage Reports
9/25/2017 - Posted by Sarah Robinson

The LMS reporting feature is made available to users based on their assigned Role. Click the Reports link in the LMS My Learning Center menu to run a classic report or to view a list of custom reports designed by your portal administrator and made available to your role.


Build Audiences for Unlimited Batch Course Enrollment and Announcements
6/29/2017 - Posted by Sarah Robinson

Audience is a new concept for the LMS, specifically intended to improve the tools available to administrators for managing groups of users. In response to user requirements for enrolling large groups of users, we have created an offline (asynchronous) batch processing option for enrolling large numbers of students. In addition, we have increased the capacity for quick (synchronous) enrollments to 100.


Administrative Data Scoping for Franchise Model Businesses
5/30/2017 - Posted by Sarah Robinson

LatitudeLearning developed a modified approach to some of the administrative rights and responsibilities relating to the role of "Administrator", particularly one that works in a franchise organization. The goal was to provide a franchise administrator the tools to manage ONLY the people at his or her franchise by refining data scoping parameters to hide all user data tied to other organizations.

3/7/2017 - Posted by Janay Robinson

LatitudeLearning is excited to announce the launch of our newly designed stylesheet.

You spoke. Latitude listened. The LatitudeLearning community desired for an updated “look & feel” of the LMS. Our engineers eagerly went to work on designing a more modern, refreshed looking stylesheet. Good news – we are done! Great news – current and new LatitudeLearning portals have access.

Browse Courses by Topic
3/6/2017 - Posted by Latitude Learning Team

Course Topics provide a way of browsing the course catalog by subject category, or topic. To use this tool, Portal Administrators activate the Topics feature, add one or more topics, and then associate the topics with the desired courses.


Design Custom Home Pages for Position Groups
2/6/2017 - Posted by Latitude Learning Team

Portal Administrators can enable targeted branding of the user home page based on a user’s Position Group, an attribute associated with their Position Code. For example, you can have a home page designed exclusively for Sales people and another for Service technicians. Functionally, when a user logs in, the LMS will identify their position group and display a designated home page with customized HTML content.


LMS Roles and Their Functions
12/28/2016 - Posted by Latitude Learning Team

The Latitude Learning LMS provides a set of established Roles, which define a user’s navigation and access rights to built-in tools and functionality. During user Profile setup, the Portal Administrator can tailor a person’s LMS experience and responsibilities by assigning one or more Roles tied to a corresponding Organization. This document outlines the set of default functionality and access rights for each established Role in the LMS. 


LMS Information and Portal Configuration
12/16/2016 - Posted by Sarah Robinson

The LMS Information page provides Portal Administrators an overview of their LMS subscription, add-on features, and configuration options. This document describes the key statistics and settings available under Site Management - LMS Information.


Course Group Delivery Method
12/12/2016 - Posted by Latitude Learning Team

The Course Group Delivery Method provides an easy and flexible way to bundle multiple LMS courses together for a single training completion requirement. Instead of containing learning material, the content of the Course Group is a set of Component Courses, which already exist in your LMS. When a student enrolls in this type of course, a corresponding training widget appears on their LMS Home page, and will display component courses until the entire suite is complete. Students can then navigate to their History tab to print a Certification of Completion for the entire course group.

If you have considered utilizing our powerful certification engine for assigning and tracking employee training, but are not looking for rigorous program and competency management , Course Groups could provide you a simplified form of certification. Use the LMS Reporting Tool  to evaluate training progress and compliance at the course level instead!


Send Announcements to Communicate with LMS Users
12/11/2016 - Posted by Latitude Learning Team

This document focuses on the tools that allow administrators to communicate directly with LMS users, en masse or individually. 


Manage User Reporting Hierarchy: Person-to-Person
10/25/2016 - Posted by Latitude Learning Team

Person-to-Person reporting enables Portal Administrators to set up reporting relationships based on Username, rather than Position codes.  With Person-to-Person reporting, a user may have zero, one, or multiple managers, similar to the way many organizations are structured today. These relationships also enable managers to view training, approve course enrollments and set and manage user goals in the same way they can with for Position Code Reporting.


LMS Mobile Site - Streamlined for training on the go
9/8/2016 - Posted by Latitude Learning Team

The Latitude LMS now includes a mobile friendly view targeted primarily toward the student user. When a user accesses the LMS from a mobile device, they will see a simplified and easy-to-use interface. Mobile views are available for all portals without any extra configuration required of the Portal Administrator. We have worked to streamline the student interface and navigation to its most essential elements. Users are able to Log in, Search Courses, view Home page, My Details information, and training History.


Enable Two Factor Authentication for Ease of Access
7/28/2016 - Posted by Sarah Robinson

Two Factor Authentication provides an alternative method for LMS access, enabling registered users to efficiently and securely restore forgotten login credentials without administrative intervention. Portal Administrators can enable and disable this optional feature on the Site Management => LMS Information page. 


Merge Duplicate User Accounts
5/12/2016 - Posted by Latitude Learning Team

Sometimes an LMS user is mistakenly added to the system twice. E.g. An administrator manually adds a new user who was already self-registered, or the same person was listed twice in a user import file under two distinct Usernames. Our “User Merge” tool allows Portal Administrators to combine two active accounts into a single user record, retaining all associated profile information and training history.
