This article outlines important information regarding our Skill Insights dashboard, which visualizes the skills of your company based on the content that you are consuming/ learning.
- This feature is only available with the Enterprise Plan.
- Custom courses created in the course creation tools will not show up in the Skill Insights Dashboard. Learner activity and progress for custom courses can be viewed in admin data reports.
Overview of the Skill Insights dashboard
With the Skill Insights dashboard, you are able to understand your employees’ learning priorities, by drilling into categories and topic data to see where exactly their time is being spent. This knowledge can help you drive learning in a direction that helps you reach your organization’s goals and to see if your employees' learning aligns with your business goals.
The dashboard’s features include:
- A breakdown of the percentage of time spent learning business vs. tech vs. personal development skills.
- Total count of topics in business, technology and personal development that the organization's learning spans.
- An interactive chart that provides insights into the percentage of time spent learning and the total time spent learning by category, subcategory and topic. The side panel also shows the top courses for each category, subcategory and topic so that you can easily assign or recommend these to other learners in your organization.
- A chart with the most popular business, technology and personal development topics in your organization ranked by time spent watching. The chart also details what percentage of total learning these top topics account for.
- The dashboard allows you to view data by all users or to dive into specific groups or sections. Additionally, you can look at learning data for specific time frames.
- Priority Skills - Each admin can set their Priority Skills which will facilitate tracking and reporting on the sub-set of skills that are most important to you. You will have the opportunity to understand skill gaps and to take targeted actions when needed.
- The ability to export a User skills activity report, which provides detailed skills activity per user in a CSV format.
Who is the Skill Insights dashboard for?
The dashboard is for all admins and group admins. Group admins will only be able to see skill insights for their groups.
How is time spent learning attributed to topic/category/sub-category?
The pie chart has four levels:
- Business vs Technology vs Personal Development: Business includes all categories containing courses that are primarily focused on business; technology includes all categories containing courses that are primarily focused on technology topics, and personal development includes all categories containing courses that are primarily focused on personal development.
- Categories: These are the categories shown in the Explore/Browse experience.
- Subcategories: These are the subcategories shown in the Explore/Browse experience.
- Topics: Courses are tagged with topics. Some courses have one primary topic and all learning in the course is attributed to this primary topic. Other courses have more than one primary topic. In these cases we attribute all learning in the course to each of the topics.
A course can exist within more than one subcategory and courses with the same primary topic can also exist in different subcategories. As a result, this means that learning attributed to a single topic can be split across multiple subcategories.
The top topics list includes all learning attributed to the topic regardless of which subcategory it belongs to.
Which learning categories make up each classification?
The categories include multiple topics, some of which are:
Finance & Accounting
Workplace & Human Resources
Leadership & Management
Project Management & Operations
Personal Development categories:
