Virtual Class enhancement requests to enahnce the User Experience
For the Virtual Classrooms I have a couple of suggestions:
All the Virtual classroom offerings should be available in a calendar view so that you can see which are available by date and time that you have available as a quick and easy all in one view. This keeps you from having to drill into each one to see which dates and times are available for each.
Also it would be nice to have predefined tracks that you could sign up for and provide a checklist or progression chart or list that shows the progress in that track.
Finally it would really be nice to have a Troubleshooting series, the setup and operational courses are great, and you have a wonderful support group and who could argue that THWACK isn't a game changer... but this would really be great for those of us that are new to the admin side of SolarWinds!
There is a virtual classroom calendar available on the virtual classrooms site
For the recommended curriculum for each of SolarWinds Products check out the success center link below
Is this new? If not, then....
Where is the link to the calendar, within the site?
It should be very obvious on every Virtual Classroom page, or at very least the VC homepage.
I have not seen it available on any page I have visited.
It would seem that the the point is to make it easier to identify courses that fall on the days and times when you have time available.
If the link is not easily seen or found, then how does that make it the correct answer. Having something and making it readily available for all are two very different things.
Well though that may be a start in the right direction, it does not appear that there is a link to it on the virtual classroom page, like for a calendar view click here!
Also, the listing in the calendar are for other things than just the virtual classes, which would be fine, if they gave a more complete info window on mouseover, rather than having to go into and back and forth between the listings within the calendar.
So, something similar, only better thought out and or implemented would be good for that aspect and easily available from the Class listing page.
