When I add a new External Group, I need to assign that group to a learning program. The new group is not on the list when I choose to 'Enroll' on the Learning Program. When the 1st user registers, they have NO content to start the program. Waiting for the 1st user to register, then go back into administration to assign the group is backwards and not time efficient??? Is there another way I can set this up so I can assign courses to 'new' external groups. It does not need to be a Learning Program if there is another way to do it.
Hi HST U.
There are a few methods you can use to get learners added to Prime and assign courses to them. Here are some options to consider.
OPTION 1 (above image)
Once you have your learners loaded in Prime as users, you can assign a course to them when it is first created.
OPTION 2 (above image)
Once you have your learners loaded in Prime as users, you can assign a course to them via the course card.
OPTION 3 (above two images number 1 - 5)
Create a Self Registration link (it creates a profile). This allows you to identify the learners (a cohort) you want to assign to a course -- WHEN CREATING A NEW COURSE.
Explanation for images above (make sure signed in as admin to do this)
Step 1: Click Users link
Step 2: Click Self Registration link
Step 3: Click Add button, from that drop down, click Self Registration
Step 4: Name Profile, add manager
Step 5: Be sure to copy and save the link that is generated.
How to use Profile link once it is created
I hope my take on this helps you!
The Prime team is working hard to develop a comprehensive user guide for Prime Administrators (I've been on this ride with this request for a year now). With this in mind, for future reference & more details, check out these links:
Feel free to reach out to me, I'll gladly share my experiences using Prime thus far.
Very helpful for 'Internal Users' but my question was regarding 'External Groups'.
I was able to reach a support person and they suggested I create a 'Learning Plan' to assign the Learning Program once they've registered. So far, this is working
