This course type will be released in September 2017 - please contact us for more information at info@upskillLMS.com
Upskill will enable you to build and manage face-to-face/classroom based training courses through the platform.
The powerful course builder provides a step-by-step structure to building your training course. The course builder is broken down into four main sections:
- THE BASICS
The first section collects the core information that will be used to promote and communicate the purpose of the training course.
As with the eLearning courses the information includes the course name, a course description, pricing (if for sale), who the course creators are, who the course is intended for, the relevant course training categories, learner and client testimonials, a course image and any relevant course information pack attachment.
Additional data requirements include:
- Study type (i.e. full time / part time)
- Course duration
- Study hours
- Fee, subsidy and payment option information
- Enrolment requirements
- Units of competence
- COURSE CONTENT
The second section is where you build out the structure of your training course as individual training sessions. You are also able to build a learner feedback survey to be completed at the end of the course.
There are no limitations to the number of training sessions that can be added, with each session containing the following information:.
- Training session name
- Training session description
- Assessment criteria overview
- Training session duration
- Training session resources upload
- Training session communications and reminder emails
- Assessment requirements
The Upskill Assessment Tool enables you to build unlimited assessment questions/options for your training session. Assessment options including automated self-marking questions and also manual marketing assessment options, including:

Manual marking options will be managed through the trainer.
- COURSE SETTINGS
The third section is where you specify how you want the training course to operate and set the management criteria.
Upskill provides a comprehensive range of management settings, including:

You can set the required pass mark or % and also how many attempts a learner can have for each question.
