Oracle Releases Oracle Learn Cloud 13A

Advanced Global Functionality and Usability Enhancements Provide Richer Learning Experience for Oracle Learn Customers

CLO Symposium, Austin, TX – March 20, 2013


News Facts

To help organizations develop a high-performance and aligned global workforce, Oracle has introduced Oracle Learn Cloud 13A.
The latest version of the learning management system (LMS) expands its global reach with additional time zones, languages and date format preferences, along with usability updates to help increase adoption and convenience.
Part of the Oracle Cloud, Oracle Learn Cloud is a comprehensive solution for delivering, tracking, managing and reporting on all types of formal and informal training. Using a single platform to access online, virtual and on-the-job training, organizations can design tailored user experiences through highly configurable learning portals with a unique user interface to manage learning globally.

User-Friendly Enhancements Drive Global Consistency and Efficiency in Learning

Educating and training employees in compliance with company and other federal regulations is crucial for legal purposes. Yet managing learning across geographies and regions can be challenging, particularly when accounting for regional differences in languages, work days, and work weeks.
With updates to usability and global preferences, Oracle Learn Cloud 13A paves the way for a richer learning experience that accelerates learner adoption to enhance performance and streamline the learning process.
New functionality provides customers with more global options, flexibility and consistency using one single learning system:

    o With expanded options for time and date formats, including 36 new time zones, administrators and learners around the world can create and view courses in their local time zones regardless of where they are located. Users can also set their own start day of a work week to avoid schedule conflicts. For example, if you are located in the US and want to schedule a course in China, your learners can attend the same course from China without disruption.

    o Oracle Learn Cloud is now available in 19 languages, including Polish, Dutch and Danish, which were added to this release.

Redesigned interfaces for users and administrators to enrich the user experience, including a tabbed interface that allows administrators to more easily discover content and training opportunities.
