Managing Training Groups How to manage my training groups and training material associated with each course.
Log in to your website admin section and navigate to Dashboard > Training Module
Click the “Training Groups” option on the training dashboard.
The normal XMS Systems options are available for filtering, edit and adding a new Training Group to the list.
Defining the Training Groups
Initially you only going to add a “Course Name” to the group with no articles, files or exams allocated. In the mean time your training officer will be using the “XMS Systems Article Module” to add training material. These training material/articles will later be added to the specific Training Groups.
The list of courses or Training Groups will show you the Course Name,Description, if articles, files and exams are allocated and the required access level
- Course Title
Descriptive title for your course. This will be used as the url to the course as well as the title of the exam and url to the exam
- Course Description
Short but thorough description of your course. This will also be used in the page SEO as well as used when posting to social media
- Course Image
This image will be displayed on the course and exam page. Will also be used when porting the social media
- Articles Allocated
On the left is all the articles available in your website. Select the article/s and click the right arrow to “move” the article to the right column. This action will allocate the article to the course.
- Files Allocated
On the left is all the files uploaded to your website. Select the file/s and click the right arrow to “move” the file to the right column. This action will allocate the file to the course.
- Exams Allocated
On the left is all the exams defined in your exam module. Select the exam/s and click the right arrow to “move” the exam to the right column. This action will allocate the exam to the course.
- Member Access Level
Unlike the rest of XMS Systems where any access level is the minimum required to access a specific functionality or page, the Training and exam module uses this as the actual level required. This means if your members does not have the “specific” access level they will not be able to access the course material and related exams. This is done to allow different “levels” of employees and manager to access similar courses at different standards if needed.
The articles, files and exams are not required to be allocated to a training group to access an exam as a practise exam. They are totally seperate from the actual training.
