aXcelerate Administration Portal Configuration for Learner Portal

aXcelerate Administration Portal Configuration for Learner Portal

This page steps you through the basic administration functions you need set up to use different functions of the Learner Portal.

Basic Terminology

Before starting with the Learner Portal it is important to set the correct terminology for your organisation. The terminology is set in the Core Settings tab under System Settings (Settings > System Settings) see Core Settings for more information.

You must fill in the the Training Administrator Email Address field with the desired email address your want the feedback submitted through the portal to go to. NOTEIf using the Request to Enrol feature for a non-enterprise account, please fill in the Training Administrator Email Address field. This will be the email which receives any enrolment requests made by students.

The Portal name will be based on what you have decided to enter as your Common Term for Training Participant. If using the term Student, the portal will be Student Portal etc. For the purpose of the help, we refer to the portal as the Learner Portal to differ from our existing Student Portal. 

Enter the common term you wish to use for activities, such as workshops, programs or eLearning courses, in the Common Term for a Learner Portal Activity: (New Learner Portal only) field. For example you may wish to use the terms 'course' or 'activity' to encompass all types of training events. For the purpose of the help we refer to the Common Term for Learner Portal as Course.

Giving Students access to the Learner Portal

For students to access the portal they must have a Student System User created against their contact. NOTE:  Steps 1 & 2 below are one-time set up steps. The remaining steps are repeated for each individual student you wish to grant access to.
