The DLMS Campus Home page for Learner

My Learning tab
The My Learning tab is where you will spend most of your time. From this tab you have five options: • View My Curricula • Launch My Courses • View My Courses • View My Course History • Search Course Catalog

“My Learning tab” home page

View My Curricula
The View My Curricula is where you can find and view curricula that you or your manager has assigned you. It will also show your progress toward completing the curricula.

Launch My Courses
The Launch My Courses is where you can run web-based training courses that you have registered for in the campus.

View My Courses
View My Courses is where you can view the courses that you are registered for in the campus. You can also launch the courses from here.

View My Course History
View My Course History is where you can view the courses that you have completed whether the completion was successful or not successful.

Search Course Catalog
And finally Search Course Catalog is where you can search for courses that are not included in your curriculum, such as safety courses, and from there you can register for the course.

How to Add Curricula
On the My Learning tab, click the View My Curricula hot link.

The following window opens. The table lists all of the curricula that you or manager has assigned to you, the status of the curriculum (percent completed), who assigned that curriculum, when it was assigned, and the target date to complete it.

To add a curricula click the Add Curriculum hotlink.

Type in the name of the curriculum or you can just click the Search button to list all of the curricula.

The system will display the list of available curricula. Select the curriculum that you want from the list.

The curriculum now displays in your list.

How to View The Curricula
Go to the My Learning tab, and click the View My Curricula hot link.

By clicking on the curriculum name such as Electrical you can see the curriculum path that you must take to complete it.

This is the curriculum path. You should complete your curriculum path going left to right, top to bottom. The system is saying that I have started the Basic Electrical Course. Everything in green tells me I have completed those courses, and the grays are incomplete. NOTE: You cannot launch a course from here.

How to Register for Courses
Go to the My Learning tab, and click the View My Curricula hot link.

Click on the curriculum name such as Electrical so you can see the curriculum path that you must take to complete it.

You now see the curriculum path. You register for a course from the path by clicking on the course name.

Click on the Register button on the bottom of the screen.

Click the register hotlink.

From here you can launch the course by clicking the Launch Content button or you can wait and launch the course later

When you register for a course the system will check to see if you have met all of the prerequisites for the course before it will allow you to register for it. You can always find what prerequisites are required for a course by clicking the course name on the path and then selecting the More Details tab. In this case 3 courses are required before I can take the Electronic Components course.

The system will also check to see if you have already registered for a course. If you have already registered a message will appear telling you that you already registered for the course.

Clicking the History tab from the Curriculum Path window will display the details of your progress, when it was assigned, when you started it, and your target date to complete it.

How to Launch My Courses or View My Courses
• The Launch My Courses and View My Courses are identical in what they do. Many users could not figure out where to launch their courses so we made a duplicate menu option to help them find where to launch courses. • From the My Learning tab, clicking the Launch My Course is how all courses are launched.

From there the system displays all of the courses that you have registered for in the Service Campus. To launch the course click the Launch hotlink.

It appears that all courses are listed twice, but it is not really the case. The first title is the course and the one below it is the offering for that course.



If you click on the course title you will get details about the course. The More Details tab will allow you to see the prerequisites for the course.

Clicking on the offering title will actually launch the course. Notice that on the right of the window you also have a Launch hot link that you can click to launch a course. Also notice that one course does not have a launch hot link. That is because it is an instructor led course with nothing to launch.

There are also three other hotlinks on the table, View Content, Drop, and Results. The Drop allows you to drop a course. A confirmation window will display to make sure you really want to drop the course or not.

The View Content allows you to see information about the course such as what the passing or mastery score is and how many attempts you have to complete the course.

Clicking the View hotlink from this window gives even more details of the course. It shows each individual module that makes up the course, the amount of time you have spent, and the number of attempts.

How to View My Course History When you have completed a course whether it was

successful or not successful the system will move the course out of the My Courses section and place them into the My Course History. By clicking the View My Course History hot link you can see what courses you have completed. You can filter which courses that are displayed by entering the date criteria.

If you completed a course successfully you can click the Print Certificate of Completion hot link to print your certificate.

The hot links under the action column will vary depending upon your role. If you are a learner only and not an administrator or instructor, you will have only one hot link, View Content and not the Edit or Delete.

The View Content hotlink works just like the View Content on the View My Courses. From this window you can click the View hot link.

From here you can view the status of each module in the course, the last time you accessed each module, the time spent on each module, your score and total number of attempts.

How to Search Course Catalog
The Search Course Catalog hot link is used to search for courses that are not in your curricula paths, but you may also be required to take. A good example some of the safety courses in the Service Campus. Notice in this example I entered %Safety%. Searches in the Campus work left to right and the % is the wild character. My search is telling the system to search for any course title, description of a course, or keyword with the word safety somewhere in it.

That is the Simple Search, but there is also the Advanced Search. By clicking on the Advanced Search hot link you can be more specific about your search. A good example is that I am looking for courses and enter my %Safety%. Notice the system returns all languages.

If I add more criteria to my search I can limited the results to safety courses in English only. This time I select English from the drop-down next to Language and the system returns only courses pertaining to safety and are all in English.

Another good example is that I want to take an instructor-led course but I am located in Arizona. I can enter the following and see only the instructor-led courses in Tucson. NOTE: The Location field means the location of the course not your location.

The results tables that are displayed by the system can be sorted by a column by clicking on the column heading. I am planning a trip to Peoria in March and I wanted to see if there are any instructor-led courses the end of March. I can click on the Start Date column and sort the table by start date.

You can also print the results tables, export the table, and modify the table. The export feature exports a .CSV (Comma separated values) file that can be loaded into an Excel spreadsheet.
