1. Admin LMS
Creating your Banner
Within the Admin LMS, a Banner can be easily created via the Engage tab by simply clicking the +Create a Banner button.
Configuring your Banner
Users will be directed to the Banner configuration page where title tags are added to each Banner, and a toggle enables the option to make the Banner visible or hidden to learners in real-time.
You also have the option to add an Image URL that will act as a hyperlink for the learner to be directed to any external URL.
Assigning Banners to User Groups
Banners can be assigned to different User Groups via Access Rules. This function enables you to target segmented users based on factors of choice, personalising each user’s learning experience.
The Banner can be made available to all users within your account by utilising the most functional and efficient solution, the Universal Access button.
All of your Banners will be listed on the main Banner page, enabling easy access and tracking of your creations. You also have the ability to drag and drop the Banners into the order you want them displayed in the Learners App.
You will be able to visually identify which of the Banners within your list are Hidden from your learners via a pill on the image.
2. Learners’ App
On the homepage of the learners’ app, amongst all courseware, you will find the Banner at the very top.
If more than one Banner exists, the learner can swipe through the different Banners.
A visual indication will pop up on Banners if they are clickable. This means that a user can click on the Banner to be directed to a URL outside of EdApp.
And that’s it! We hope you enjoy Banners and that it further enhances your L&D strategy, enabling better learning experiences and outcomes alike.
