The OnPoint team is always here to help, but sometimes the effort is more challenging than it needs to be when there is too little information. Where do we start our investigation when we receive an email that says "It doesn't work?"

When it's worth asking

We often refer to the OnPoint LMS system as a "toolbox" because of its robust set of "tools" capable of solving most any learning challenge you face. But with all these options, it can be tricky to know which feature to use and when. Because there are often multiple ways to accomplish something, knowing when to engage our team to discuss your options or get help can be a big key to your success.

If your learning solution provides an integrated Note-taking feature for users, should it be for personal note-taking or something that is sharable with others? Can or should an Administrator, Manager, Mentor or Trainer see a user's notes? It's best to consider all valid "use cases" before answering these questions. Whereas it is technically possible and in certain cases reasonable, does it make sense in the corporate world to allow a user's personal notes to be made public facing given the increased concern for user data privacy? What scenarios does it work well in? What could be the downsides?

Arriving home after a storm blew through the neighborhood, I pondered the time and effort to find my chainsaw, check that it was working, had gas, and would be powerful enough to handle all the fallen limbs. I recalled the wise adage "it's all about the tools" and wondered, might that also apply to the learning world? The answer is a resounding "Yes"!

How Many Interfaces is Too Many?

"When it comes to choosing, pick any color you'd like so long as it's black." Henry Ford's quip about
vehicle color choices in the early days of industrialized auto manufacturing suggest efficiencies are
maintained when we don't have to offer customers too many choices. Is that same conversation
happening in your learning organization in terms of the user experience? Do you have one (or several)
groups who insist they need their experience to be different than what your primary "system of record"
makes available?

Are you guilty of asking a vendor how much something will cost, without giving them sufficient requirements for the project? Maybe you feel vendors should be able to provide a "ballpark" estimate from just a summary of what you need? The danger, of course, is a quote for services that isn't even close, or worse yet, a quote for a solution that doesn't match your actual underlying goals.

Whether you created one unique interface or a number of different ones, you've likely earned a bit of bragging rights. Most learning systems have one common user interface -- for everyone! They don't differentiate between one customer or community of users that just wants a catalog of optional content to self-select from, from another who may have rigid compliance training requirements, to yet another group who wants gamification because their users are competitive.
