  • HR – Evaluations, Training Paths , Certifications , SchedulingIT – Multi Platform (written in Java), Objects Layer can connect to a host of different databases, Single Signon, Able to cater for local content servers – minimize bandwidth and WAN /GAN loads, 2 way integration with SAP Business – Training is Role Based and Outcome based. Line and Functional managers can see results at a glance, Scheduling allows for workforce planning and online manager authorization of training. Methodology + Course Design + Assessments = Impact Assessment – can measure the impact a training program has had on measurables in the business.

Instead it is a strategic approach to learning in the corporation. Without a robust business-driven strategy to guide implementation and delivery, e-learning is bound to fail.”<br /> – Don Morrison from E-LEARNING STRATEGIESHow to Get Implementation and Delivery Right First Time<br />

    27. 27. Content Development<br /><ul><li> I will be drawing the process flows, either in FlowHow or Visio or Aris
    28. 28. Some of the shapes may have relevant information which I will add for the training developer
    29. 29. If I use Visio or Aris, changes in the process flow can be re-imported to ensure the training materials are in sync
    30. 30. I need to quickly but effectively structure a well designed full course, contextualizing all the information
    31. 31. I will add information about the reasoning for the configuration – this will save time for both the training developers as well as the classroom based trainers</li></ul>Business Process Owner or Specialist<br />System Configuration<br />Elearning and Content Developer<br /><ul><li>I will get all my printables from one source and always the latest information
    32. 32. Additionally the Instructor guides will assist with my classroom training
    33. 33. I am able to include any relevant information for the specific course. This will make the Training Developers task easier. I can also QA the course and make the suggested changes to the content</li></ul>Classroom Based Trainers<br />Subject Matter Expert<br />FlowHow<br /><ul><li>As all the materials are “Role Based” which mirrors the Role structure in KnowHow – I know which training is being given to the different roles
    34. 34. I can using KnowHow do readiness evaluations by Job Role and link that to evaluation scores by Role
    35. 35. As all the information is stored on the LCMS, I can manage the courses completed against project plan
    36. 36. I will also be able to graphically report where in the development cycle each course is sitting (available end 2009)
    37. 37. I can add the frequently asked questions which the help desk gets for inclusion into the materials. This I will do from time to time based on the problems the users are calling in with</li></ul>Help Desk<br />Training Project Managers<br />Change Management<br />

    40. 40. KnowHow – LMS & Performance Evaluation System<br />Knowhow manages the following key areas <br />Management<br />Users - KnowHow manages user populations based on Training Roles and Organisational Roles<br />Learning Structures – Learning structures are based on container structures allowing for Job Description / Job Role/ Qualifications/ Sub Qualifications.<br />Courses – Courses are automatically broken down into key components i.e. Overviews, Simulations, Documents, Assessments. <br />Assigning FlowHow courses to Job Roles is simple as Job Role Matching is done automatically<br />Schedules – Classroom/ Elearning or a blend of both<br />
    41. 41. KnowHow – LMS & Performance Evaluation System<br />Deployment <br />Courses are available via a structured My Learning Page giving all details of the course at a glance <br />Context Sensitive Relevant Training / Reference Materials via SAP’s Help Screen<br />My Favorites – User Defined Key Components of a course<br />Via a Portal Hyperlink<br />Pre – requisites (both content and assessment) ensures users are guided through the learning life cycle<br />Scheduling – Caters for Scheduling of Blends i.e. <br />First the user attends a classroom session (at specific dates and times, then they need to complete the elearning course or assessment by a certain date <br />
    42. 42. KnowHow – LMS & Performance Evaluation System<br />Assessment<br />Each course is broken down into components, which can be assessed via access/time or in the case of evaluations by score. <br />Components can be marked as mandatory / optional and course scores are rolled up into sub qualifications and qualifications. <br />Evaluations are database driven allowing for ranking of question difficulties – allowing for true randomisation.<br />Meets NQF Requirements <br />All evaluations / Questions and Results can be printed for Portfolio of Evidence <br />
    43. 43. KnowHow – LMS & Performance Evaluation System<br />
    44. 44. KnowHow – LMS & Performance Evaluation System<br />Notifications<br />Reporting - Learner and Manager (both Line and Function)<br />Reports sort data based on field e.g. (Courses complete by Job Role, by Learner, Assessments, Qualifications)<br />Email Notifications <br />Options Include<br />Email sent to identified Line / Training Managers when assessment attempted / passed / failed<br />Email notification to users when any changes made to component or course<br />Email notifications sent to users / managers when training booked (if training / scheduling module implemented)<br />Certification – When a user passes a qualification a certificate is made available for printing.<br />
    45. 45. KnowHow an Enterprise wide LMS - Integration<br />KnowHow fits into the Enterprise by integrating with the following systems<br />SAP (Via XI or SOAP Interface) <br />KnowHow  SAP <br />Training and Events <br />Qualifications ( Indirectly Talent Management)<br />SAP  KnowHow <br />User Details<br />Job Description<br />DMS (Via KnowHow referencing Hyperlink)<br />E.g Documents , Policies Procedures<br />SSO / LDAP (Single Sign-on)<br />

    65. 65. Classroom Training on the basics, the remainder of the study is done online from the users desktops – effective for systems training
    66. 66. E-learning first then classroom training – effective in courses where the theory can be studied online followed by a workshop where the trainer expects the user to have grasped the basics prior to coming to the classroom.
    67. 67. Classroom training only with online and offline evaluation. This delivery method is useful for areas where practical elements of the training are the key focus e.g. How to drive a forklift truck</li></li></ul><li>Complete SAP<br />Authorization Form<br />Attend Intro to KH Course<br />Go Through KH<br />Training Material<br />SAP R/3 Production<br />Access!!!!!!!<br />Obtain 80% Or More On<br /> All ShowHows & Assessments<br />Run KH Authorization<br />Report<br />Do Experiential Lesson<br />In SAP Training Client<br />Training at COJ<br />
