Courses

Percipio courses are comprised of a series of videos and supporting resources. You can browse the course content or review a short overview of the course.

  1. Course contents: This is the table of contents for the course. It shows a list of the videos within the course and the order that they play. You can collapse this panel for a bigger viewing area.
  2. Course status: Available course statuses are Not started, Started, and Complete. The How to Complete link displays the requirements that must be met in order for the course to be marked as completed within Percipio. If you do not start playing any videos or access any resources, the course status stays as Not started and does not display in your Resume learning or Activity lists.
  3. Take Test: Select the Take Test button to open the course test. When you've successfully passed the test based on the completion criteria, the course is marked Completed on your Activity page and on the course's content card.

  7. Q&A: The Q&A tab allows learners to have a dialogue about course content. If you do not see this tab, your administrator may have turned Q&A off. On this tab, learners can:
    • Post a question they have about the content in the course.
    • Respond to other learner's questions if they know the answer.
    • ‘Like’ the questions and answers they find valuable.
    • Edit and delete their posted questions and answers.
    • Opt to follow discussions of interest and receive activity notifications for those discussions (if turned on for your Percipio site).
    • Report any inappropriate questions and answers to ensure a positive environment.
  8. Resources: The Resource tab includes available additional resources for a course. A resource is supplemental content that enhances your learning experience. A Web-based resource (HTML Resource) opens in the main content area, while other external files open in a default application configured on your system (example: Microsoft Excel™). Some resource files may prompt you to download them. Course transcripts are conversions of the videos into a text-based document. Flashcards help you reinforce what you learned in the course.
  9. Note: Not all courses have resources. This tab is only available if resources are included with the course.
