Getting Started With Schoox

Welcome to Schoox! Now that you have access to your Academy, it is up to you to decide which direction you are taking the learner experience. With many different features made to optimize the experience, we put together this article which will point you to articles discussing some of the most frequently used aspects of the Academy, so that you can feel like a pro in no-time at all.

Organizational Structure

The Organizational Structure is the foundation of how the members in your Academy are organized. It gives you flexible options to separate the members by their location, department, roles, and more. The Above Units and Units you use for your members are used all the time when assigning users to courses and learning paths, or to create automated rules based on a selection.

Members and Roles

When new members are added to the Academy, they default to having the Learner role. This gives them all the access of a Learner. They can access public and assigned courses and learning paths, see their own progress, partake in social aspects in the Academy that are set up.

Depending on their responsibilities and the access they need, members can be given different roles, such as Admin, Training Manager, Content Manager or Professional Instructor. Roles open up more permissions specific to the role. For example, a Training Manager can be set to be able to assign courses and learning paths, or view the reporting.

Here is where the administration of the academy is done, and administrators go here to set up and change settings relating to the academy. The organizational structure, members, branding, academy wide notifications, and academy settings are found here.

Courses and Learning Paths
Courses and Learning Paths are how the training in Schoox takes place. Courses are a collection of multiple lectures, which can be a mix of SCORM files, uploaded videos, linked videos, documentation, on-the-job trainings, and events. Often, the purpose of a course is to focus on one subject. Learning Paths are a collection of multiple courses, often to go deeper into a specialized route.

Courses and Learning Paths are created using the Training Admin Workspace and assigned using the Team Workspace. Learners can then find and take them using the Learner Workspace.
