An Administrator can customize the learner's home page and make it more modern, content driven, and personalized to a learner.

The personalized approach offers a widgetised way of building a Learner Home page, which the admin of the organization can configure in the admin user interface in a WYSIWYG manner.

The experience is driven by a personalized training recommendations from an AI-driven algorithm that analyses third-party content for industry skills, incorporates peer activity, and learners’ areas of interest using explicit and implicit data. 

Configure the learner homepage

On the Branding > Learner Homepage page, an Administrator can customize the homepage experience of a learner, so that when the learner signs into the learner app, he/she sees a completely revamped look and feel.

Admins can set the UI (look and feel) from the Addmin app (Branding-> Learner Home Page tab).

Admins can switch to Immersive UI Widget view, customize widgets/features accordingly, and then enable the immersive UI. 

The Learner Homepage screen contains these sections:

Immersive layout option

To view the layout of an immersive-driven page, enable the option Immersive. You can toggle this option in Branding > General.

In previous versions, the Learner Homepage options was in Settings.

Here are the options that you can set:

Homepage Experience: Enable either Classic or Immersive. If you choose Immersive, the following options appear:

  • Training Type: Choose either Industry or Custom Aligned. Custom trainings are created in-house. Industry-aligned trainings include off-the-shelf content from third-party providers.
Select homepage experience

What is a Masthead and how do I customize the Learners Masthead?

It’s a welcome banner for learners. The banner can be an image or a video. You can target the masthead to specific user groups and a learner views the Masthead as soon as he/she lands on the homepage. A User Group may see multiple hero images or videos according to the target plan set by the Admin. 

Here's how an Administrator uploads a banner:

  1. On the left panel, click Announcements.
  2. On the upper-right corner of the page, click Add.
  3. From the Type drop-down list, choose As Masthead.
  4. Write a message that will feature in the masthead.
  5. Upload an image or a video.
  6. Choose target audience. Select a user group or training where the masthead will be displayed.
  7. Save the masthead announcement.
