You can specify types of credits, and associate them with a course, or a job, in a way that someone would know that an amount of specific course credits should be acquired within a period of 6 months or a year. Credit Types work as specialization titles, reflecting the level of knowledge of the employees and the focus of their training.
For example, “SEO Expert” could be a credit type. You can specify that a Unit manager who wants to be a SEO expert should have ten credits by the end of the year, and that he can acquire them by taking courses of a specific category in your academy. To do so, you should associate each course with the relevant amount of credits and types of credits that it should have.
Let’s take the procedure step by step.
1. Create Types
First you need to create Credit Types for your academy. To do so, navigate to your Admin tab from the upper navigation menu and select Credits. Under Credits, select Create Types. Enter the type, the period type and frequency. Then, click on Add New Type.
Period type can be either full time or calendar time. Full time starts counting six months, or a year, from the day you add the type. Calendar time counts six calendar months or a calendar year.
After that, you can edit or delete the Type from this panel at anytime.
2. Create Rules
After creating the types, select Create Rules from the same panel. Select the Type, the job and specify the number of credits. You can also select the courses category, which implies that credits will be gathered only from courses that belong in this particular category. Click on Add New Rule to finish.
Please note that you have the option to recalculate the credits for employees that had completed their training prior to this set up. Simply click on the button Recalc.
3. Course Panel
You can specify the Types and Number of Credits for each course from the course panel. To do so , navigate to All Courses from the upper navigation bar and select Manage Course under the desired course. In the panel that opens, select Course Info. Scroll down and enter the information. Save before you close.
4. Credits Dashboard
You can track the number of completions per employee on a separate dashboard. In the admin panel, select Reporting from the left- side menu and Credits Dashboard. Here, you can see the percentage of completions per job. Select the stats icon to filter this information per employee.
