Elevate How-to manual - Table of Contents
A properly implemented Learning Management System (LMS) gives you all the tools you need to be able to distribute, implement, and track your training initiatives. Many labor intensive tasks which tend to be unreliable or difficult to administer become automatic when using Elevate. Elevate allows you to distribute Essential Learning courses to your learners, but it also is a powerful tool for distributing your own content, tracking paperwork, and making sure that employees have met their annual requirements. Elevate is more than a tool for on-line teaching, it is your pathway to automating all employee requirement tracking, event scheduling, AND information distribution all in one package.
In order to properly use a full featured system such as Elevate, you will need to familiarize yourself with its capabilities as well as learn the practical details of how to use the available features. This WIKI is your jumping off point. We have a host of documents, video tips, and both live and recorded webinars to help you on your path to LMS fluency.
Unlike traditional documents, these WIKI pages are bi-directional. Let us know what you think about the available information. Don't be shy. Add comments or give us thumbs up/thumbs down ratings. Tell us how we can improve the documentation right in the documentation itself. We'll do our best to keep it current and clear for you.
IMPORTANT: Our How-to manual is loosely grouped around the menus available to administrators in the Essential Learning system. Please understand that not all functions are available to all roles. We will make the distinction clear within the text which roles can perform which functions. Your role can only be changed by your site administrator, not Essential Learning Support.
Elevate generally works with most common browser/operating system combinations. If you experience any problems with a specific PC accessing your LMS or course content, please check this section for the proper browser settings and configuration.
Using an online living manual can be a new concept for some folks. This section will give you everything that you need to know to get the most out of this combination of written instructions, illustrations, videos, and even downloadable information.
You can't use any of the great features of this system without logging on. This chapter explains the logon page, what to do if you lose your password, and how to check your system requirements to make sure that your computer can run Elevate.
