An introductory tour of the NAVBLUE Academy team leader or team administrator user interface showing you how to navigate around the system.
We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.
NAVBLUE Academy supports the concept of different types of users, with these different types being:
- NAVBLUE Administrator - the highest level of user in the system with the ability to configure and change anything on the system. This role is reserved exclusively for NAVBLUE staff.
- Learner - most of the people who access NAVBLUE Academy are created as a learner. This allows them to take the training materials that are assigned to them.
- Team Leader / Team Administrator - some people enjoy a restricted level of administration as well as learner access rights. They can only configure and change users within their assigned team or teams. Some NAVBLUE customers are assigned this privilege.
When you first log in to NAVBLUE Academy you will be asked to complete a form that confirms your user profile information, such as company name etc. Once this form has been completed, if you have been configured by the NAVBLUE system administrator as either a team leader or a team administrator, then you will see this page. It may vary slightly from person to person but the main elements remain the same.
The screen that learners see is different to the screen that a team leader or team administrator sees.
The screen shown is the Dashboard screen, and from here you can see a high level overview of:
- The number of courses you have access to (three in this example).
- The number of users in your team (in this example, you are in a team of only yourself. Later on, we will show you how to add new users).
- Recent Activity and News.
There are also several buttons allowing you to quickly create new users or view reports. We will cover these functions in more detail in other topics to follow.
Tabs at the top of the screen allow us to navigate between the main functional areas of the system.
The tabs on this screen are:
- Dashboard - the currently selected tab.
Tabs are often used in NAVBLUE Academy for the user interface, so look out for them. Sometimes they don't have the same colors as this example, but you will quickly become used to them.
Move on to the People tab so we can take a look at it.
Click the People tab.
From here you can see the people that you have access to within your team. In this specific example, you (Team Leader) and somebody called Fred Bloggs are the only people in the team. We will be adding showing you how to add people later.
Each person in the list can be accessed by clicking on their name, but for the purposes of this general introduction we will move on.
Click the Teams tab.
Let's continue our tour and look at the Teams tab.
People are arranged within NAVBLUE Academy into teams and very often we will assign courses to entire teams at a time. This is because they have very similar job-related functions. Within this screen you can see the teams that you have access to. We commonly use team names that reflect the NAVBLUE software that the team uses. In this example you can see that the team name is "NAVBLUE Air Flysmart+ Users" reflecting the company name of this team and the software (Flysmart+) that the team uses.
The team names that you see in real life will depend upon which NAVBLUE software you are using.
Teams are arranged into a tree structure, so within one team you can have sub-teams. The three tabs here are useful for viewing the team structure in different ways.
Click the Reports tab.
Let's continue our tour and move on to the Reports tab.
As learners progress through the training courses that have been assigned to them, NAVBLUE Academy tracks them. It keeps pertinent information such as which course modules have been completed, how long the learner spent in a course module and any scores achieved such as in a quiz or a test. All of this information can be accessed by running a report. The Reports tab gives you summary information shown in a dashboard and the ability to run custom reports on specific people or courses if needed.
That completes our very brief tour of the team leader or team administrator user interface. However, all users in the system also have access to their user profiles so they can ensure the contact details we hold for them are correct. Let's see how to change your own profile information very briefly.
Click the Profile dropdown button.
Click the My Profile & Settings list item.
My Profile & Settings
Click the Localization tab.
Your profile information is broken down into different categories and tabs allow you to jump quickly to that category. For the purposes of this training scenario, let's imagine that you want to change the time zone that is assigned to your profile.
All usernames in NAVBLUE Academy are based upon an email address. This ensures that conflicts do not occur between different people with the same name, as their email addresses will make them unique.
Each of the profile categories has an edit button, in the shape of a pencil icon like this.
Click the Pencil button for the Localization category.
Let's change the time zone.
Click the Time zone combo box.
Click the Scroll Down vertical scroll bar.
Click the (UTC+10:00) Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney list item.
Click the Save button.
Click the Profile dropdown button.
That completes our brief tour of the team leader or team administrator user interface. However, as a team leader or a team administrator, you will also be a learner. You will need to switch into the learner mode so you can take courses that have been assigned to you. This is achieved from the user profile dropdown button.
Click the Switch to learner view list item.
Click the Continue to my dashboard button.
You are now in the learner mode that most people see when they log in to NAVBLUE Academy.
Click the Content Library hyperlink.
You can toggle back into the admin view from the profile dropdown button when in the learner view.
