The first thing you’ll notice is an additional tab is now available within your ITPro.TV ProPortal.
Once in the assignments tab, it’s time to choose what your focus is. Give it a title and we’re good to Create New Module.
As a helper, you can now write a more detailed description to make sure all users know what is expected and how long it will take. We suggest working on short rotations when creating assignments; there is no limit to the number you can make, so stagger the learning into smaller chunks.
Now it’s time to start selecting the modules that will make up this assignment. For this example, we’ve selected CompTIA’s A+ (220-901) as a good place to start. This course totals 25 hours so we’re going to break it down into two smaller assignments to make it more manageable, let’s set out the first half.
First, choose the sub-library to want to select from and identify the course you want.
You now have some choices, you can hit the “+” icon on the right to add the whole course in one go or open the episode selector if you want to break the course down. Any selected episodes will be indicated with an “orange tick”. Once you’re done, scroll to the bottom of the page and hit “Next”.
Use this section to check the total time of the course and make sure it aligns with your initial objective.
Once you’ve got your module list complete, double check and “Create Module”.
Well done, you’ve just created your module!
Now we need to pick the users we want this to be allocated to. Head back to the assignments tab and your new module will be ready and waiting. Click “Assign” and we’re good to go.
Choose which users you want this assignment to be allocated to by highlighting the radio icons and pick a date in the future by when we expect this assignment to be completed by (we call this a “Due Date”). As mentioned, we suggest not making this too far in the future. Short and focused is the way to go.
It is important to note that once your assignment's due date has passed, user data for that assignment will no longer be tracked. If one of your users watches part of the assignment after the due date, their activity will be tracked on individual episodes but it will not count towards assignment progress.
Assignment progress will track through
11:59 PST of the designated due date.
If you need to see your user's viewing data from after an assignment's due date, you will simply need to create a new assignment with an extended due date. Viewing data will be updated once a new assignment is created.
Once you’re happy here, hit create and you’re done! The users selected will now see this Assignment show at the top of their Course Library the next time they log in.
