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.
Before starting with the Learner Portal it is important to set the correct terminology for your organisation. The terminology is set in the CoreSettings 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. NOTE: If 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.
Create a Student User Role
When creating a user role simply give it a Role Name as desired, select the student Role View and leave the Allow Access To field blank.
The text should instruct the student to click the 'Forgot your password?' link at the bottom of the login page to email a reset link to create a password. NOTE: The student will receive the link via the email address they have against their contact record in aXcelerate.
Set up a contact and create a user within the Training Administration
Update an existing user's contact record with the training administration email that has been updated in the System Settings, if applicable. Update the user record to change the home page to the dashboard and add the Enrolment Request widget.
Alternatively create a new user based on a new contact, with the training administration email.
