Easy Way to Use SP As Online/CBT/ELearning Platform? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If one can create online training material using say PowerPoint - is there a straightforward method for 'publishing' this to a corporate SP site and tracking a user clicking to the last slide?

    More advanced... basic 'tests' at the end, grading and scoring users?

    thanks

  • Nothing in SharePoint 2007 out-of-the-box will enable you to track any e-learning progress.  You can definitely store PowerPoint or other learning material, but gathering information about who's access those resources is rather difficult.

    You'll probably have to go with a custom solution.  Luckily, someone has already built this for you, though, I've not tested or used this but it looks promising:

  • The codeplex is a decent starting point. It comes pre-populated with a decent amount of content. There is a tracking feature but it is reliant on the user. When going thru the material the user either clicks "Complete Training" or "Continue Later". There is Status column and a Last Completed column. When user clicks continue later the status column will populate with "incomplete" and the last completed column will be blank. When the complete training is click the last completed column populates with a date/time stamp. There is no tests, grading or scoring from what I can see. It does have a report site that will show you the training modules, the users that have completed it and the date/time stamp it was completed. You can create content and add it easily to the training site. The content creation sounds complex but I havent looked into it throughly.

  • If you weren't against getting your hands dirty, Trudy Hutzler over at pathtosharepoint.com has a few guest articles on something that may be of interest for you.

    It's hardly "quick and easy" but if you find yourself having to do something manually, it's a good place to start.
