Did you hear about our new resource in the Training Department here at OmniUpdate? We've implemented a Learning Management System (LMS) to assist customers with the transition to OU Campus™ version 10, the most recent version of our web content management system (CMS). The all new OU Campus LMS was launched this year, alongside version 10, to help new and existing users learn the system. The LMS is a resource we've utilized to organize self-paced training modules, downloadable reference guides and PowerPoints, helpful release cycle information, and other training materials.
We launched the LMS with a few introductory courses that will provide in-depth information for both administrators and content contributors. Certain courses are appropriate for all user levels, whereas others contain material that may be more appropriate for site administrators (level 9 and 10 users in OU Campus). The LMS will continue to grow as we develop additional specialized training topics. Future courses will include Access and Workflow, RSS, Social Media, Live Delivery Platform, Page Templating, and so much more.
In the LMS, each course contains a mix of self-paced modules, quizzes, written documentation, and video tutorials relevant to the course topic. Modules are an easy way for users to have information on specific topics related to OU Campus presented to them in small pieces, without sifting through too many unrelated topics on the Support Site. Campus administrators can also request their own account where they can create their own OU Campus courses!
The LMS is included in the OU Campus license, and it is open to all users at the institution. Registration with a valid .edu email address is required. After users have been registered for the LMS, they can begin enrolling in their desired courses. Most courses will be readily available in the Introduction to the LMS course, but some courses will be available by invite only, such as System Administrator courses. If you think you are the right person for an invite-only course, please feel free to email us and ask for access.
The OU Campus LMS is maintained by the OmniUpdate Training Department. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to begin using the LMS or with general questions. If you're already a member, just log in at lms.omniupdate.com.
