XtremeLabs has recently rolled out some exciting new features for our administrators and account managers to manage their Learning Partner (LP) account information and manage content for their classrooms. These features allow administrators/account managers to add and update learning partner details, as well as contact information. Administrators can also manage the external content by using the new content management feature in the account portal and associate the content to specific classrooms.

These new features are live in all our classes across the globe.

  1. Profile – Add/Update Learning Partner (LP) account details
  2. Content Management

 

1. Profile – Add and Update Learning Partner (LP) account details

This feature allows the administrators/account managers to add and update their LP account information. The users can update their LP account details by navigating to the Manage Classroom page and selecting the Profile option.

Learning Partner Details: The Profile option allows administrators and account managers to add their MPN ID and address information for their Learning Partner account on the XtremeLabs portal:

Contracts / Notice Point of Contact – It enables the administrators to add the Learning Partners’ point of contact information at XtremeLabs portal.

Accounts Payable Point of Contact – It enables the administrators to add the Learning Partners’ accounts payable information at XtremeLabs portal.

Invoice Details – This section allows the administrators and account managers to add the Learning Partners’ invoicing information on the XtremeLabs portal and it also allows the administrators to choose the e-invoice via email option.

After adding the required information, the administrators should click the save button.

2. Content Management

This feature allows the administrators to add external content for their students within the XtremeLabs platform (at the course level and module level) by navigating to the Content Management page under the Dashboard page. The administrators and instructors can record lectures, share external readings, video or audio presentations, and additional course material, create activities and quizzes for their students, and share them in the lab portal and modules simultaneously. The content can be added on course and module levels.

The administrators can add and edit external content by navigating to the Manage Classroom page.

  1. Click the Manage Classroom button on the left side of the account portal underneath the History button.

After clicking the Manage Classroom button, you will see four options, you will have to click the Content Management button to add/edit external content for your students.

  1. External Content Integration in Lab Portal (Course Level)

The administrators/instructors can add the external content on the course level by adding the following information: 

  • Content Type (The administrator/account manager can choose from different type of content: Microsoft Learn Content, Microsoft Learn: Knowledge Check, Document, Video and Other)
  • Content Title (The administrator/account manager can add any specific title for the external content to differentiate between multiple content and be viewed by the students)
  • Content URL (The administrator/account manager must add the URLs for external Content which is accessible by their students)

Once added, the students will be able to view the external content tiles in the account portal in addition to the lab modules tiles.

2. External Content Integration in Lab Modules (Module Level)

The administrator/account manager can add the external content on the module level by adding the following information:

3. Associate Content to Classrooms

After adding the external content for different courses and modules, administrators/account managers should choose from multiple classrooms to associate the external content. It is very important for administrators to associate the content with the classrooms for external content to be reflected on the course (lab portal) and module level (lab environment).

The administrators will have to click on the Associate Content to Classroom to perform this action.

After clicking the Associate Content to Classroom button, administrators/account managers will see the following page:
