We've also made platform enhancements to improve the experiences of our Learners and Admins. Our user feedback is critical to these changes. Here’s a few highlights from the past month that we’d like to share with you:
Learners can now review and quickly access our Newly Released Modules from the Dashboard, including those covered in this content review.
Admins now have the ability to assign training plans to either an entire Team or individual Learners. Training plans can still include full courses as well as individual modules with or without a due date. Training plans are a great way to engage users in our wide range of content.
