We are looking for a process in which our trainers (non-admin user) to be able to record or log a completion for an item for another user. For example, trainer would review the user's work and ensure they have followed/met all of the requirements then they sign off indicating the user is certified. Currently it is a paper form with the trainer's signature. Is there a more automated process?
A Yang is correct. An instructor with the appropriate security workflows can record learning completions for ad hoc completions for items that they are authorized to teach IF the item is set up correctly. There are a lot of IFs in that sentence. To break it down:
We are starting to use this feature more often for department trainers who don't have admin responsibility within the LMS but who want to be able to record credit for the items they teach during 1:1 training sessions.
The ability for the instructor to record completion, is this on the admin side or the user? I was testing on the user side tab for the instructor to see if I can register a user adhoc and it doesn't seem to have access. I don't want to give them access to the Admin tab to do this. I was hoping the Instructor tab from a user side would allow them to do this. Please advise.
I recently did a webinar session where we covered the Instructor role and walked through all the workflows need to perform all the available functions.
Here is a link to the recording as well as the presentation. Check out slide 14 and 15, I think this should help you find what is not configured correctly in your instance.
We have OJTs (On the Job Training) that have checklists. This initiates the observer and observee function.
