From the Client side, there is very little to prepare for a cloud-based version of the Intellek LMS, as the LMS instance will be hosted in one of Intellek’s Data Centers.
•The web address for the Client’s LMS instance must be added to the Trusted Site Security Zone on all workstations.
•The web address for the Client’s LMS instance must be added to the Pop-up Blocker Settings Exceptions.
•IT will need to whitelist the following URLS for ALL users. This ensures they can see the icons throughout the LMS.
•Make sure Font download is enabled in your browser. Control Panel > Network and Internet > Internet Settings
•Users will need to whitelist the LMS URL in their uBlock Options (in the Trusted Sites tab as shown in the screenshot below)
1.This is achieved by pasting your LMS URL into the box and clicking Apply changes.
Note - make sure to put an '*' at the end of the URL so that the whole LMS is excluded from uBlock
2.In the example below we've whitelisted our LMS testing instance. Once Apply changes is clicked, content will correctly launch. Also note the asterisk mentioned above.
* An Internet Connection is required. Note that bandwidth requirements vary depending on the number of simultaneous user and type of content.
** Used for reports and importing users.
Intellek can work with your IT Team to allow your authenticated users to automatically login to the Intellek LMS.
There is an API available to automate the feed. Alternatively, we can work with your HR and IT Teams to implement a daily or weekly feed of users into the LMS, using an .XLSX or .CSV file. This will get uploaded to our server using SFTP and a background process will then process the information into the LMS.
Learner (user) information is the most important data you will add to the Intellek LMS. It is essential that the information be consistently formatted and applied. Inaccurate or inconsistent end-user data will result in inaccurate reporting and make assigning learning difficult.
Intellek provides each client with the file to populate and use as the basis for the user import.
Your organization may choose to populate the workbook from a parent database or databases (e.g., HRIS, Active Directory, InterAction). If the parent database or databases have consistently formatted data that is appropriate for the Learning Management System (LMS), that process can be automated by the appropriate network staff in your environment.
If the information provided from the parent database or databases requires cleanup or revision for use in the LMS, either the parent database will have to be revised or you may choose to do an initial data load from the parent database and then manually maintain or enter user data. You should make this decision from the beginning. It will impact the maintenance of the file or the method you use for user account creation.
If you plan to maintain end-user data in the file (whether manually modifying data or using a DTSX/SSIS package to populate it) you will maintain ALL active records in the sheet (new, modified, and inactive).
When you import via the file, any end-user previously maintained within the file, but no longer included, will be marked inactive in the LMS. Users that have been manually created will not be updated, unless you change their Entry Type to Automatic. This change is made at the bottom of the Detail page for the user.
The import file can be used as part of an automated process that will be set up by Intellek and/or you can manually load users into the system by selecting Import Users on the three dot Options menu on the Users page in the LMS.
