If you’ve not yet seen Learning Locker version 2 (also known as Learning Locker Enterprise), you are missing out! Alongside the huge feature list that already exists, we’re constantly shipping updates to the product with improvements and fixes.
Over the last 8 weeks the Learning Locker development team has been hard at work shipping version 2.3. If you’ve got an Enterprise Learning Locker account, then you’ll be seeing this update pushed to your server in the coming days. Here’s what to look out for:
This is a biggie, and one that we’ve been wanting to ship for a while; the ability to embed your customised dashboards in another web page (locked down by domain name).
For example, we’ve embedded a demo dashboard in this page on our website using a simple iframe:
This feature will make sharing the output of your analysis super simple. You can just email a colleague the link to a ‘public’ dashboard, or embed it on a website that only your team can visit.
Sometimes you can make some pretty complex queries with Learning Locker, especially if you edit the API calls directly.
You’ve always been able to save those queries for use elsewhere in the platform, but now you can update previously saved queries or use a ‘save as’ type function to create a new saved query based on an old one.
You’ll now need to hit the ‘load’ button, as shown below, to make the query you’ve selected load.
Added query editor to the Export / Reporting user interface
When you go to create exports / reports you can now directly edit the API calls being made to give really tight control on your output.
We’re looking to make this work via the GUI in a future iteration, but we’ll settle for editing the query directly for the time-being. You’ll find the new button in the bottom left.
Search to login page for people with a lot of organisations
Some of our biggest users make heavy use of our multi-tenancy feature. Now it’s easier to search for the organisation you want to access.
A more finely-grained scoping layer to prepare for 2.4
Our next release will see more permissions coming for controlling who gets to see and edit various queries and dashboard reporting. We’ve put some hooks in place this time around to make the next update a little easier.
What’s Changed in 2.3
In addition to the new features that we’ve added, we’ve also made a few updates to frequently used features that users have asked us to tweak for various reasons.
What’s Fixed in 2.3
And finally, we’ve hunted down a few bugs down that needed fixing:
So, lots of good things, and we’re already working on the next release… so watch this space!
As always, get in touch to take Learning Locker for a test drive.
Ben Betts was one of the founders of HT2 Labs and his work with the company helped to define the ‘next generation’ of workplace digital learning platforms. Under Ben’s direction, HT2 Labs were amongst the first to put gamification into a Learning Experience Platform. They were the first to really grasp how social learning could be applied in the workplace. And HT2 Labs were the first to release an enterprise-ready Learning Record Store.
As Chief Product Officer, his focus is now on developing Learning Pool’s product portfolio and strategy. For the wider industry, he’s also focused on helping companies learn from employees’ collective experiences, on the role of self-directed learning in the workplace and on social learning, gamification and xAPI.
