Availability of Learning Journeys in SAP Learning Hub
We are glad to announce that Learning Journey guides are now available within the professional edition of SAP Learning Hub.
A Learning Journey is an interactive guide illustrating the path to achieve a certain skill level like for example get an overview, become fully competent and prepare for certification, to stay current, or expand your skills for a specific role and SAP solution, such as key user for the SAP S/4HANA Cloud for Finance solution.
As a pilot, we also made some Learning Journey guides available as trackable course programs in SAP Learning Hub. You don’t need to search for the individual courses anymore, you can simply assign either the individual learning items included in the Learning Journey into your “My Learning” plan or the entire learning track of the journey, such as all relevant learning titles, to become fully competent.
You can find the Learning Journey guides on the content space of SAP Learning Hub, in the top, under the tab “Learning Journeys” next to “My Learning Content”.
Introducing New Learning Formats:
In SAP Learning Hub, we constantly try to improve our learning offerings in order to provide a diverse and engaging learning experience. In May we introduced assessments as a standalone learning feature, where you can self-validate your know-how level to enter a course at the right level, providing a more relevant and effective learning experience.
An assessment is the consolidation of all pre-existing assessment questions from an e-book or e-learning course into a comprehensive quiz. It functions as a standalone course item which can be searched for and assigned in the same manner as an e-book or e-learning. The assessment offers feedback for false answers as well as a final result page which outlines the chapters that the learner is proficient in.
It can be taken at any time, serving as a pre- or post-study knowledge check.
Multi Modular Programs
The first multi modular e-learning programs are available in SAP Learning Hub. They are being introduced to serve as a modularized learning asset to improve your learning experience. They are offered in the “Program” format which will allow corresponding materials such as SAP Learning Rooms, SAP Live Access, e-books, and e-learnings to be bundled in one location, under one course title.
The programs will be available in the same way that an e-learning or e-book is, you simply need to search for the topic and filter for “Program,” select “Assign”, and start it in the same way you would start an e-learning course. We are starting off with some pilots to collect learners’ opinions on the design and function of the programs.
Search for any of these courses: HA100, HA300, S4C01, S4H01e, S4H10e, S4H40e, S4H41e, S4F00, S4F10, S4F12, S4F13, S4F15, S4F17, S4F22, and AC200.
New Design Elements in SAP Learning Hub
We have changed our user interface, leveraging new design elements such as learning item icons and a completely refreshed home space for SAP Learning Rooms. In addition, we organized the content catalog using a consistent taxonomy and consolidating the number of courses significantly.
We hope you enjoy the new updates and stay tuned for further innovations!
