What’s happening at Clui

At Clui, we’re always working on ways to improve our powerful and easy-to-use learning platform. Stay up-to-date with what’s new at Clui and what we’re working on, here.

SHIPPED

Learning space administrators have always had control over who can create and edit courses, but now you can manage this with even more granularity thanks to module-specific permissions.

Our newly introduced ‘Add, edit and delete course modules’ permission, in the ‘Courses’ section of each learning space access level, allows you to choose the modules course admins can manage.

Using learning space access levels, you can control whether course admins are able to create, edit and delete their own courses as well as edit and delete courses created by others.

When configuring course-related permissions in learning space access levels, tick the new permission and, as each module type is selected by default, clear any modules you don’t want users to manage.

Note: Existing learning space access levels with course editing and creating permissions are not affected by this change and include the ability to manage all course modules, by default.

To manage learning space access levels, go to your learning space settings (by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of Clui and selecting ‘Learning space settings’) and change to the ACCESS LEVELS tab.

Introducing the Document Viewer module!

With this module, you can include a PDF document for learners to review as part of a course without having to download it.

You can also request learner acknowledgement of the document, enforcing learners to confirm they’ve read it before they can continue the course.

The course progress of your learners is now visible on a modular-level.

For each learner enrolled in a course, the number of completed modules is shown on the Course Insight page in a new column called ‘Module Progress’. For further intel, we’ve also added a ‘Last Accessed Module’ column to inform of each learner’s most current module, if applicable.


Managers can sort completion rates from lowest to highest and vice versa and see modular course progress in Course Enrolment reports.

Note: Modular course progress is not visible for courses that include Path Selection modules. Action modules are excluded from the total number of modules in a course as these are not actioned by learners.

We’ve made changes to the way reports are created, edited and managed on the Reports page in Clui – making this fundamental tool easier to learn and use for busy managers.  

A few highlights include:

  • Multi-course reporting: Select and report on multiple courses in a single report.
  • Mandatory course reporting: Filter and report on courses that are mandatory.
  • Easier user-interface: Access the filters you use most at the top of the report builder and expand more advanced filters when you need them.
  • Clearer organisation: Find reports you’ve created on the newly introduced ‘My reports’ tab or refer to reports created by others on the ‘All reports’ tab.
  • Enhanced user reporting: Include more details about your learners in reports, such as upcoming reset dates, email addresses, and assessment due dates.

Please note, access and visibility of reports is dependent on access levels in Clui.

The modal for editing enrolment statuses in Clui has been updated to give you greater control over your learners’ course enrolments.With the new modal, you can update a learner’s enrolment status and the amount of time they have to complete the course (their course time limit).

You can also change their progress reset date and set up to three reminders to send them before they need to re-complete the course, if a reset action applies.

Sometimes learners need a little help. To help you help them, we’ve created a support contact form.

The new form opens automatically when ‘Contact Support’ is clicked on the help page, giving your learners a consistent experience across devices and eliminating the need for a native email client.

After learners fill out the form and hit ‘Send’, all the details you need are sent directly to your nominated support email address.

WHAT WE’RE WORKING ON

You asked for it and we listened – the functionality to create an organisational hierarchy in your learning space is coming!

Once implemented, you’ll be able to set one-to-one relationships between users to indicate reporting lines.

Hierarchy will provide added value and ease when managing direct reports and performing tasks such as course progress approvals.

E-learning is great, but blend your online content with in-person events and live webinars and you’re onto something amazing.

That’s why we’re giving Clui’s Face-to-Face and Webinar Event modules some love.

In the not-too-far-away future, you’ll notice improvements to the administration of events in Clui including better email notifications when changes happen and more flexibility when managing sessions.

The definition of an ‘active user’ can be a little confusing thanks to several different types of user activity being displayed in Clui – ‘last active’, ‘last login’ and ‘last seen’.

We’re streamlining this information to make it clearer and more valuable. Soon the dates recorded against users will be easier to understand and more relevant to learning activities.

We’re looking forward to releasing our refined workflow for adding and inviting users to Clui. 

We’ve previewed the changes with some clients and the feedback has been very positive; the modal is clearer and has greater built-in flexibility. 

OTHER UPDATES

Draft mode was announced as a goal at the beginning of Q3 2019. During the build, we discovered some hurdles which prevented us from achieving what we wanted in our time frame. 

After weighing up our priorities, we decided to postpone draft mode for now to allow us to focus on more valuable product goals.
