In Schoox you can easily keep track of how much time your employees spent completing their training. You can see all the information regarding the time spent in the Employees Dashboard.
Courses: The time spent for a course is calculated by adding the time spent on all of the course's lectures. For each type of lecture, the time spent is being calculated differently:
- Documents: For pdf, ppt and doc lectures, the maximum allowed time spent per slide/page is set to 30 seconds (i.e. a lecture with 10 slides will count maximum 5 minutes time spent). If the time per slide/page is shorter than 30 seconds/page the time spent reflects the actual time the document was open with a maximum value of 30seconds x (pages of the document).
Videos/Audios: For a video/audio, once the video/audio reaches the end, it is marked as complete and the time spent reflects the duration of the video/audio.
Do you allow fast forward for your videos?
If No then the time spent shown for the video lectures reflects the actual time that the user spent.If Yes then the time spent for the video lectures reflects the duration of the video.
As an example, let's say that a user clicks on a video step (that allows fast forward) and that the video duration is 12 minutes. Once the video opens, he is fast-forwarding the video to the end. The user’s actual time spent was 1 second but the time spent that you will see for him under employees' dashboard will be 12 minutes, since we track the video's length, not the user's actual time spent on the video.
Scorm: The time spent for a SCORM lecture reflects the time the SCORM lecture was open.
Web: The time spent for a Web lecture reflects the time the web page was open.
Exams: The time spent for an exam reflects the time the exam was open. If the exam is part of a course, the exam’s time spent is added to the overall course time.
On the Job Training: Under each task, you have the option to define the "Training Hours" field.
This field will reflect the time the employee spent on this task and can be filled in by the OJT creator. If the On the Job Training is part of a course the time in this field will be added to the overall course time.
In Class Training: When an In Class Training is completed, the event creator is able to mark the registrants as absent/attended. For every registrant that is marked as attended, there is a time of attendance field that has to be filled in, which reflects the time the employee spent in this In Class Training. If this event is course connected the time of attendance will be added to the overall course time.
Live Sessions: When a Live Session is completed, the system will fill the time of attendance field with the time the attendees spent in the live session. If this event is course connected the time of attendance will be added to the overall course time.
Please note that if you are using the Webex integration for your live sessions, Webex does not return the time of attendance time back to Schoox. In this case, the event creator can fill the time of attendance manually.
