AI-based recommendation

Captivate Prime includes a brand-new learner homepage, which is modern, more content-driven, and personalized according to a learner’s preferences. AI-based learning recommendations aim to enhance learner engagement and identify and address gaps in learning.

The recommendation algorithm is designed to take in multiple sources of input including Industry data on Job roles, titles and descriptions that Adobe has sourced from its partners. This data is then used to train Adobe’s AI algorithms so that Captivate Prime can come up with a map that connects industry aligned skills to job titles and/or designations. This then becomes one input to the recommendation algorithm

Captivate Prime then uses topic modeling algorithms to analyze the training content within an account and map them to the skills.

Captivate Prime uses peer activity data as another signal to drive the recommendation algorithm in a personalized manner. Activities like enrollment, completion and any explicit feedback provided by learners is used here.

Additionally, Captivate Prime uses explicit and implicit information gathered from individual learners to further personalize recommendations. A learner will be able to indicate their areas of interest explicitly through enrollments and Captivate Prime will receive this information implicitly based on how the Learner ends up taking up the trainings.

Finally, the Admin will also be able to influence the recommendation algorithm using learner attributes that Captivate Prime should look at when defining peer groups, and also by actually highlighting Trainings for specific user groups.

Content Folder

To add a content folder, in the Administrator app, click Settings > Content Folder.

Folder

A folder is a repository of content, which is a subset of the entire content library available in an account with the following properties:

  • Only an Admin can create, edit, or delete a folder.
  • An Admin can control access to folders as part of defining roles only for custom admins.
  • Content must at all times, be associated with at least one folder. To start with, all content will be associated with the Public folder, which can later be changed.
  • Content can be associated with multiple folders at the time of creation, which will also be possible by a copy operation
  • All folder names must be unique within the account, otherwise there will be an error in naming a folder.

Folders only control visibility of content and don't create copies of content. Therefore, editing content will reflect in all the associated folders.

Public folder

A public folder is always present in an account and initially, all content will be part of this folder. Later, authors can move content out of this folder into other folders. A public folder has the following properties:

  • All content associated with this folder will be accessible to all types of authors, by default.
  • Any content that is a part of a public folder, cannot be part of any other folder. The converse also holds true.

This folder cannot be part of configurable role definition. Consequently, not having a public folder in configurable role definition doesn't restrict access to a public folder.

Private folder

  • Any folder created by an Admin is a private folder.

Folder operations

Add a folder

To add a folder, click Add on the upper-right corner of the window.

Delete a folder

You can also delete a folder. Select the folder to delete, click the Actions menu, and click Delete Folder.

NOTE: Folders can be deleted when all of its associated content is also associated with other folders. If there is content that is linked with only the folder being deleted, first move the content to another folder, and then delete the folder.
