Oracle Taleo Learn Cloud Service

Oracle Taleo Learn Cloud Service is a comprehensive solution for delivering, tracking, managing, and reporting on all types of formal and informal learning. Users have easy access to learning through a single platform for online, classroom, virtual, and on-the-job training, as well as assessments, blended learning, social learning and self-reported training. Organizations can design a truly tailored user experience with complete control over all aspects of the user interface.

Team Monitor Widget – Approval View

An Approval View option has been added to the Team Monitor widget. This view displays Team Members with pending Learning Plans, Enrollments, and External Training events. Managers and Supervisors drill down to view the pending events. Pending events are displayed in a summary list, with the option to drill down further to the detail page. Each pending event may be approved or denied from either the summary list or the detail page. The Team Monitor Approval View features include:

Team Monitor Widget – Management Reports

A set of Management BI reports are now available from the Team Monitor widget. A new report icon opens the BI Reporting window with the management reports listed and available for viewing and scheduling. Widget setup has a new Reports tab for enabling the report option and selecting availability. Reports available include:

Removed Users Dropped from Enrollments

There is a new Enrollments option that automatically drops Users from Enrollments if their usernames are updated to the status of Removed. This enhancement includes:

Catalog Widget

A new Catalog Widget provides a tool to allow Users to find training by Category. The Catalog Widget groups training by Category, enabling Users to select a root category and drill down through the sub category hierarchy to view the available Learning events assigned to the sub category. Once the link is selected to display Learning events, the Search Results page presents the matching items. Both list and card views are available. Catalogs may be created for a single type of learning event or a combination of event types. Learning event types available for cataloging include:

Add External Training Page

A new Add External Training link has been added to the My Task widget page. This link opens a new Add External Training page enabling Users to create new External Training events. This link is enabled on the My Task widget setup Content tab. The new page includes:

Widget Improvements for Usability

Learning Plan, Transcript, My Tasks, and Skills widgets have been refined to improve information access and usability. Changes to Widget functions and pages include:

eCommerce Course/Class Purchase Visibility

Courses and Classes purchased in eCommerce now appear on the My Task Widget as well as the Courses Started Dynamic Object. This provides buyers with a history of purchased training, even if they have not yet viewed the training in the Course Player. The My Task Widget displays the event as 0% complete. The Purchase Date is recorded as the Start Date and Last Viewed Date and shown on the Courses Started Dynamic Object. This applies to eCommerce purchases only.

Learning Plan Custom Fields

Custom Fields in Learning Plans enable Administrators to enter and store additional data that describes training item containers for both end users and the integrators. This feature comes with dedicated set of permissions and makes use of standard features like Management and User views. Data stored in Learning Plan Custom Fields can be retrieved with BI Reporting Learning Plan Data View as well as published in a Learning Plan Widget.


Learning Plan Sequencing

You can now map Learning Plans to other Learning Plans. This enables Administrators to organize training activities into more manageable buckets, and to sequence plans. You can create one- or two-level deep training structures, and offer nested plans for sale or self-mapping. Only standard Learning Plans are supported for use with this feature.


Portable Skills & Search Widgets

Skills and Search Widgets are now portable, which means all currently offered Widgets are available for embedding on external websites. Portable Widgets require Single Sign-On (SSO) to operate.


Import/Export Custom BI Reports

You can now transfer custom BI Reporting reports between LearnCenters or exchange reports with other LearnCenter Administrators. This feature enables the export and import of custom BI Reporting report definitions only. No data is included in the output files. The import wizard allows for mapping of Custom Fields from the source LearnCenter to the target LearnCenter.


Content Manager

The new Content Manager provides Administrators with the ability to manage their informal/unstructured learning document content. The Content Manager allows for a single place to upload and manage documents, without the need to access the SFTP server. The Content Manager supports versioning of the document content and automatically converts the content into a web-friendly format. The features of the Content Manager include:

Document-Based Course

The 17A release introduces a new Document-based Course to support assigned Informal/Unstructured training requirements such as assigning users to SOP (Standard Operating Procedures). Traditionally many customers use the LearnCenter WYSIWYG Course to create courses with document links to track that users have viewed a document. The Document-based Course can be mapped to users through Learning Plans, Assignments, Skills, or Enrollments. Additionally, the new Document-based Course viewer includes responsive design so users can access the content from any device (PC, tablet, or phone) to complete their training.

With the Document-based Course you will be able to:
