Can I have multiple courses with the same names?

I would say, you can have multiple courses having the same name, but I would insist you should not have them. We distinguish between courses using a unique identifier and not by course names.

As I stated, I will not recommend having multiple courses with the same name, because it may create confusion for you later in distinguishing courses.

I have multiple courses in my list, how can I start “create/update” content in a particular course?

With our Biz and Enterprise accounts, we allow our Learning Content Creators to create multiple courses. You should be having one of those licences. Please follow the steps below to create/update content in a particular course.

Step 1: Sign into the QuoDeck application using your Trainer account.

Step 3: Locate the course, in which you want to create/update content

Step 4: Click on “Edit Course” that appears on given course card.

Step 5: Now your desired course is selected for editing/updating.

Step 6: Go to Create tab in the left menu, and you can create/edit/update content.

I have completed the course, but on my course card the score is displayed as zero.

Well, let me brief you a bit on this, which will make things clear to understand.

The score displayed on the card is actually the score of the assessment which is marked as “Final Assessment” by your trainer while creating the course. If your trainer has not marked any assessment as final assessment or simply there is no assessment in your course at all, then this score will be displayed as zero.

Monotonous to Fascinating: Changing Employee Training Module

Training used to mean boring, but what if you play a game and get trained on a particular niche! Technology has revolutionized our daily lives and so the training. Now with the help of engaging contents, you can provide training to your employees or learn a new technology.

QuoDeck developed a game-based platform to train employees in a fun manner. We spoke to Arijit Lahiri, Co-Founder, QuoDeck Technologies to understand their vision and how it can be helpful for enterprises.

What’s the idea and How you began this journey?

When we started off in 2013, we were looking for a bunch of potential learning games but there was no software. So, we plan to create an engine which will allow us to develop games, specifically for learning. We wanted to pick up this space because most of the learning is fairly boring in the Enterprises, even today. As we have worked in that environment for our careers in Enterprises, we found that learning is very monotonous. We thought that games would make it interesting.

We thought to build a software microservice architecture and over the course of time, we developed a platform kind of web version like Netflix, Amazon kind of approach. Instead of having like one Central Core, we decided to have multiple small services which kind of aggregate the entire API level. So microservices on the API and micro apps on packages on the front-end side, where we are using just for context for backend.

Some of the backends will be on Ruby on Rails, so basically, some of rails APIs are actually Phoenix and Alex API. Also, some backend parts are on PostgreSQL and some are on MongoDB.

For the front end, we earlier used jQuery and all without using the frontend framework. Later on, we migrated most of it to React. Apart from that anything which is created on the QuoDeck framework can also be consumed through Augmented reality apps like Euphoria, Unity or Virtual Reality which is unity based, so it connects to the API.

What sort of API integration has been done?

This is cloud-hosted, some of the microservices can actually iterate what we call Omprem, behind the firewall. So, let’s say there is end number of services which are there in the app. So, they adapted in the firewall which communicates with the client systems with the clouds.

What kind of mechanism you have designed?

We have done a bit of inspiration from On the TV shows Silicon Valley. They had this concept of they were talking about this concept of mobile internet, so what we realize that lot of the calculation, a lot of the analytic which have been done on the server, doesn’t need to be done on the server so.

What we have done! Let’s say there are hundred thousand learners in a particular company he if I aggregate all the data on the server and calculate, it becomes a fairly complex affair. Instead of what that R code does the whole set of calculation and caching and storing at the mobile level.

What is aggregated needs to who goes to the server now again this is not on one single server, we have a set of app servers, which are serving out to do shading calculation by the Mongo app. Basically, we shed out the Analytics so that it allows us to do the whole bunch of real-time otherwise it would take like three days to calculate.

Why would enterprise adopt your solution?

Either they are looking for something which is free, very simple, low maintenance and can deploy easily for Speed. Because it’s a microservices app architecture the entire thing is very modular. You can launch the customized app as we have just launched QuoDeck Express. It is a variant which is built it on the context of speed. What would otherwise it will take maybe like two or three months to setup up and deploy, that can effectively now be done in just 10 minutes. That’s the hyper-speed version of the QuoDeck.

Everything is like merging Google Drive with all the powers of the learning management system. So, ability to start with a very fast system & and scale it up to a very powerful system is what really works for the Enterprises, and it works for most of the companies.

People don’t likely to come out to buy tech, they come out to solve a problem. So, when we try and cater to that this express kind of offering as You take it and get ready and go. Once that is done then are saying like OK this is interesting can we do a little bit more of this. And then you say ok so how this you can scale up the system till you can go to. Its largest we have a deployment which is a group company level deployment which has about 15 companies within it and each, so there is one common app and somebody comes in, they get to see their own branding.

At the most powerful level, there is mobility, there is engagement which is all the game-based learning techniques, and the third is fairly deep and complex analytics. Learning should be measurable, it should be treated more like a Marketing activity and not just as a charity activity for people in-house.

4 Essential Apps for Onboarding your New Employees

As we are stepping towards the future, the trend of paperwork is becoming a thing of the past and onboarding apps are getting popular for each step

Recruitment is the most important process for any business as it brings in people who shape the future of a company. Human Resource employees are responsible to help onboard the new employees, which is a crucial step for a new employee’s growth in the company.

So, the onboarding process should be taken seriously and most importantly, it should be efficient. The paperwork and formalities before an employee is inducted should be done in a timely fashion. There are multiple steps in the onboarding process.

And as we are stepping towards the future, the trend of paperwork is becoming a thing of the past and onboarding apps are getting popular for each step of onboarding.

So, here are 4 apps for onboarding your employees:

WorkBright: For the administrative processing

WorkBright offers a platform where a human resource personnel can speed up the process of documentation. It allows the new joinees to upload their documents directly to the app even before their first day at work. It also checks whether the uploaded documents are clear enough or not, and helps you send a prompt to the employee if it’s not clear. This can help an organization save a lot of money as they don’t need to hire a dedicated person for this job.

WorkStyle: For profiling

WorkStyle helps all employees to create a work profile, which can help other teammates to get to know each other professionally. With the details filled in the WorkStyle profile, employees can understand each other’s working preferences, timings and approach. This can easily smoothen the process of new employees blending with their new teammates and understand the work culture beforehand.

QuoDeck: For onboard training

Once the paperwork is done and you have created profiles for your new employees to help them understand the work culture, it’s time for onboard training. QuoDeck helps to create gamified training modules for your new employees. This method can be used to train your employees for their specific role or a general overview, which totally depends on your training principles. As most of the company trainings and onboarding is somewhat forced, so it directly affects the impact and effectiveness of it. This is where QuoDeck makes it more efficient. The gaming experience when transposed in the onboarding process attracts the employees and increases their retention. So, employees are able to gain much more out of the experience than a normal boring training session.

iAppreciate: For recognition drive

The last step for onboarding an employee completely is to have them feel they are recognised for the work they are putting in. This is where iAppreciate is a powerful tool to utilize. Statistics show that recognizing an employee’s endeavors will result in increased productivity. iAppreciate allows you to create a platform where employees can be congratulated for their efforts and goals. As everybody will be on this platform, it is easy to boost the confidence of the new employees and reap better results from them.

The above-mentioned apps are a great way to onboard an employee as they cover each and every aspect of onboarding an employee. As the modern technology is advancing with each passing year, it can very well be understood that the era of paper and slow onboarding process is gone and more HR professionals are relying on such applications to make the process faster and more efficient than ever.
