Summary of 2018 Learning Portal Updates

Version 4

    In early 2018, the learning portal will undergo an update in display and functionality for some pages, to help you manage your marketing cloud training account.

     

    Please go to the learning portal and navigate these pages described below to understand how to perform the most used functions in the portal, like enrolling for LVC courses and downloading resources. Feel free to send questions about navigation to the Help Desk at any time.

     

    Following is a summary of the main changes that will become effective in early 2018. This post will be updated with additional information as any new features are added.

     

    Home Page: My Learning Plans

     

    My Learning Plans > Assigned

     

    Learning plans are now updated for 2018 courses and contain 2018 exams (excluding Luminary, expected in March).

    ** Learning plans are the ‘Go To’ lists in the portal to see the course requirements and exams for accreditations. **

    If you're working toward accreditation, refer to the details of your platform's available accreditations to plan your education path to achievement.
