Since the release of Articulate Online back in January, one of the suggestions that we have heard time and time again from customers is that they wanted a “User Portal” in Articulate Online. To show you that we are listening, today we added a User Portal to Articulate Online!
Question: What is a “User Portal”?
Answer: The Articulate Online “User Portal” is a place where your private users can securely login to a personalized training site to view and access all content items that administrators or publishers have assigned to them.
When we originally designed Articulate Online we didn’t include a “User Portal” because we wanted to focus on creating a platform for easily hosting training content that could then be incorporated in existing websites, blogs, or linked to in emails sent to users. I think we did a pretty great job on this front.
However, shortly after release of Articulate Online in January we started to get requests from customers who also wanted a “User Portal” added to Articulate Online as another means of distributing their training. They wanted a place where users could login, view a list of content they are assigned to view and be able to view the content.
Question: So what does the “User Portal” include?
Answer: By enabling the “User Portal” in Articulate Online, you have the option of allowing your users to do the following in the “User Portal”:
- Show a list of all content items the users is given permission to view
- Show user history reports
- Enable users to print the History report (a list of all items viewed) or Attempt Detail report (a print out of the specific attempt at a quiz), which can be used as a completion certificate
- Manage their e-mail address and password settings in the “User Portal”
- Give your users a customized message in the “User Portal”
Question: Cool, so what is this going to cost me?
Answer: Nothing! Great part about it is that all of our existing plans will be able to enable the “User Portal” in Articulate Online, so it won’t cost you a thing.
So that’s it. I hope you guys like the “Users Portal” and thanks for reading my blog.
