Tracking Progress in New KnowledgeNet Courses  logo

By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Student Computing Services Manager

The newer KnowledgeNet computer-based courseware (covering the latest versions of Windows and Office software), features a different way of tracking and displaying one's progress in the course. The older training did this tracking automatically; in the new training, one must set up this feature for each course.

To record/display progress in the course, the user must click on the map button on the lower left-hand corner of the course screen (see below). This displays the outline of course topics:

Click on the map button to get the complete outline of course topics

A red and blue Learning Object Triangle appears on the left side of each topic heading (below). Click on this Learning Object Triangle to launch the section of the course. This also triggers the progress recording application and now your progress will be recorded.

Click on one of the blue/red Learning Object Triangles to start that part of the course.

Please note that you MUST launch course sections in this manner in order to have your progress recorded in the system!.

When launching the courseware in this way, the Learning Object Triangles are now displayed at the bottom left of the screen. You click on subsequent triangles to advance through the topics in the course (below). Note that you use the standard playback buttons on the right bottom of the screen to advance through the materials in your current section.

You will now see the Learning Object icons at the bottom of the screen.

Don't ask me why KnowledgNet's new courses use this clunky way of doing something that they used to do automatically! I guess "that's progress"! If you have further questions about this issue, please contact me, the CBT administration at
