Account settings

Here you can edit your (personal) details. The name of the organization will be used as the title of the website. You can also change your password. You need to enter a new password twice.

As an extra security measure two factor authentication can be set up. If this function is active you have to enter a verification code in addition to your password. This 6 digit verification code is generated by an authenticator app on a mobile phone, based on a secret key. The correct verification code continuously varies in time. The key can be saved in the app by scanning a QR code or by entering or copying it manually. Without the secret key, you cannot log in, so carefully store the key in the authenticator app. Any app that support the TOTP protocol (Time-based One-Time Password) should work. When entering the verification code you can indicate to trust the device with which you are logging in for 1 week. During this week, no verification code needs to be entered to log in. The password in combination with the username is always required to log in. If you have enabled two factor authentication, all trusted devices will be visible on this page. Click the X icon in the row of the trusted device to delete it.

Accounts

An important setting is the way initial passwords are set. If you select the default ‘temporary password generated by email’ option, teachers and students will receive an email as soon as their account is created. This email contains a password that is generated by the system. The email is, by default, written in the language of the user creating the account. You can also specify a custom welcome message. In this case, the message is not dependent on the selected language. Make sure that custom messages contain the correct placeholders for username and the generated password. If you select the ‘temporary password specified by teacher / administrator’ option, a password for the new user needs to be entered twice while creating the new account. In this case, the person that creates the account needs to provide the username and password to the new user.

When a user logs in for the first time, a new password has to be chosen. By default the temporary password is valid for 60 days. You can change the validity period yourself. For all accounts you can set a minimum password strength. This setting does not cover temporary passwords, for this a fixed minimum of 8 characters is required. When you choose to allow password reset by teacher / administrator, the password of an existing account can be manually set to a new temporary password. The current password chosen by the user then becomes invalid. If a teacher has forgotten his password, you (as administrator) can reset this. If a student has forgotten his password, the teacher can reset this.

When you choose to allow Password reset via email all users that have forgotten their password can request a reset via the site by specifying an email address. For this the user has to solve a CAPTCHA first. An email with further instructions will be sent to the specified email address.

If temporary generated password via email is selected, you can also choose to use a short form with email address(es) as username for creating new accounts. These rules then apply:

  • Uppercase letters in the email address will be converted to lowercase.

  • The username of the new account will be the same as the email address (in lowercase).

  • The user cannot change the account’s email address.

  • On first login the user has to fill in the first name and the last name.

  • Multiple email addresses can be entered, for example by pasting a list of email addresses in the input field. For every address an account will be created.

  • This option is not available when you have configured that users cannot change their account details in the privacy settings.

  • For import of student accounts the username, first name and last name are optional.

If you switch on notification on failed login, an email will be sent to the user (student, teacher or administrator) on every failed login attempt. If the submitted username is unknown, no notification will be sent. The attempt however will be listed in the login attempts log. You can also make two factor authentication available or required for teachers and students. If two factor authentication is available, users can activate it in their account settings. If it is required, the user has to configure two factor authentication after logging in with username and password, before being able to use the LMS. If the user has lost the secret key, logging in is no longer possible. To solve this for a teacher account you can switch off the two step authentication.  If a student has lost the secret key, an authorised teacher can switch the two factor authentication off for the account.

Certificate templates

These settings determine what qualifications can be used by teacher to create certificate templates for self-made courses. The settings have no effect on predefined courses. You can also add a default certificate template that is used for the graphic design of all certificates. When this template is defined, teachers cannot set a custom design for a certificate template. The template is used too for certificates that have already been granted.

Change the language

You can select the language in which you are active in the LMS. If you create teacher or student accounts, these will be created in the same language. By default teachers and students can change the language after login. By selecting ‘no other languages’ for the setting ‘Other languages’, you can disable this.

Creating a product group

Click on the icon + ‘New product group’. Enter a name for the new product group in the ‘Name’ field. Click ‘add’ when you are done. In the table of product groups the new product group appears as the bottom row. When third parties are granted access to a product group, by default all modules and courses of that product group can be accessed. When this is not desired, access can be handled explicitly. In this case the reseller has to specify which modules and courses each customer can access.

Creating a teacher account

Click on the ‘New teacher’ icon. In addition to the teacher’s first name and last name, you need to enter a username and a valid email address. The username is case sensitive and has to be unique: no two teachers with the same username can exist. You can indicate if the teacher can receive feedback from students. The teacher can edit this setting later by himself. When a teacher is able to receive feedback or when a general feedback email address is specified, a comments button appears below each question for student in the modules. The student can select to which teacher the feedback is sent. You can specify the rights of every teacher. A teacher with limited rights will not be able to use all functionality of the LMS. You can also manager the rights and setting for feedback through a teacher profile. When you select a profile, you cannot change these settings for a single account. If you have configured that account details are sent via email, you will see a notice. In this case the LMS will generate a password and the teacher will receive the details immediately via email. Moreover, when you have set that only email addresses need to be specified, you can create multiple accounts at once. The teacher must enter a name after login.

If you have configured the website not to send the account details by email, you will have to choose a password for the teacher. This password needs to be entered twice. You have to provide the teacher with the account details yourself; the LMS does not do this. The teacher always has to set a new password after login.

  20. Performance: Only applies to test: passed or failed.

General settings

Login menu and welcome text on site

These settings define what the home page of the website looks like. If you enable the login menu, login options for student, teacher and administrator are displayed. If this option is disabled, only a link to the login page for students is shown. The URL of the login for teachers always ends with ‘tlogin’ (teacher login), the URL for the administrator ends with ‘alogin’ (administrator login). The text above the login menu or the link to the login page for students can be set in the field ‘Welcome text on site’.

Content mapping

This setting determines how all modules are mapped for the teacher. All modules are arranged in folders, to provide a better overview and to improve searching. The structure of these folders can be selected with this setting. By default all modules are arranged by topic, but alternative mappings (e.g. by level) are possible as well. Select the mapping that suits your school or company best.

Force new passwords

You can choose to make all students and teachers set a new password. By clicking on the button   “Force new passwords”, the form is shown which allows you to select which users (student, teachers or both) need to change their password. The period specifies the number of days within which the password must be changed. The password has to be changed immediately after the next login. The user cannot continue until the new password has been set. If the password has not been changed within the specified period, the account will be suspended, the user can no longer log in with the current password.

Graphic design

On this page you can change the design of your site. You can choose between these styles:

  • Default: This is the default color scheme.

  • Custom colors: You can create your own color scheme by selecting 2 different colors.

You can set a logo for the site. The logo is displayed below the main menu, just above the submenu. Use an image with a white background. You can also set a banner that is only displayed on the homepage of the site. Use an image with a background color identical to the menu color. Use an image format that is suitable for the web, such as JPEG, PNG or GIF.

Import and export settings

Data can be exported as a CSV file. The language setting determines which separator and decimal sign will be used. For the encoding of the file ISO-8859-1 (Latin-1) is normally the right choice. This encoding is used in Western Europe, America, Australia and large parts of Africa. You may also select UTF-8 which also supports non-western characters such as Arabic, Cyrillic, Greek, Chinese or Japanese. You can also specify what fields (columns) need to be added to the file for the export of results and students. These settings also apply to the import of students. However, certain fields then are required.

Import teacher accounts

Accounts can be imported in batch by uploading a spreadsheet file. Such a file can easily be composed in Excel or OpenOffice. Every line or row in the file represents one account. The following file formats are supported:

  • XLSX: Spreadsheet document from Microsoft Excel, version 2007 and higher

  • ODS: OpenDocument Spreadsheet, for example OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice Calc

  • CSV: comma separated values

On the overview page the files you wish to import or have imported are listed. Files older than two weeks are automatically deleted.

To add a file, click the icon   ‘New file’, select the file from your computer and confirm by clicking ‘add’. On the page of the file, you then can see the default settings and a table with the file contents, as configured in the Import and export settings. You can adjust the settings and change the meaning of the columns in the table. Errors are listed before the table and shown in the table. If there are no errors, the file can be imported. Click on the button ‘Import’ below the table. When in the general settings ‘temporary generated password via email’ is selected, for every new account a welcome message is sent out immediately.

Follow these rules when assembling a file:

  • The fields ‘Username’, ‘First name’, ‘Last name’ and ‘Email address’ may not be left empty.

  • When you have chosen to have a short form for new accounts with only email addresses in General settings, the ‘Username’, ‘First name’, ‘Last name’ are optional. When the ‘Username’ is missing in the file, the email address is used as the username. When the first name and last name are missing, the user will have to fill this in after the first login.

  • The ‘Username’ field should be unique within the complete student administration of the site .

  • When a teacher with the same ‘Username’ exists and this teacher has the same ‘First name’ and ‘Last name’, no new account will be created. The settings of the existing teacher account are not changed and no error message is generated.

  • When a user with the same ‘Username’ exists and this user has a different ‘First name’ or ‘Last name’, an error message is generated.

  • The field ‘Password’ will be ignored if the account details are sent automatically by e-mail.

  • The field ‘Password’ may not be empty if initial passwords are settable by the administrator or teacher in the General settings.

  • The field ‘Country’ contains the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code and the field ‘Region’ the last part of the ISO 3166-2 code. Regions are only supported for a limited number of countries.

  • The name of group can refer to an existing group. If the name does not exist yet, the group is created during import. The new teacher can only access this group.

  • When a ‘Parent group’ has been specified, the new ‘Group’ will be created as a child. Otherwise the new group is added as a ‘main’ group that is not nested.

  • If the ‘Group’ is empty, the teacher can access all groups.

  • If a ‘Profile’ is specified, it should refer to an existing teacher profile, otherwise an error will be generated.

  • If the ‘Profile’ is empty, the new teacher has the default (permissive) rights.

  • You can use a header line (e.g. “Username, First name, Surname…” etc). You can specify this in the Import and export settings. The first line or row of a file with a header line will be ignored.

If you want to delete the file, because for example it was successfully imported or because it contains incorrect values, you can delete it manually. Click the icon X ‘Delete file’ and confirm.

Importing student accounts

Accounts can be imported in batch by uploading a spreadsheet file. Such a file can easily be composed in Excel or OpenOffice. Every line or row in the file represents one account. The following file formats are supported:

  • XLSX: Spreadsheet document from Microsoft Excel, version 2007 and higher

  • ODS: OpenDocument Spreadsheet, for example OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice Calc

  • CSV: comma separated values

On the overview page the files you wish to import or have imported are listed. Files older than two weeks are automatically deleted.

To enroll a large number of students at once, log in as administrator and go to the ‘students’ tab. Click on ‘Import student accounts’.

Click on the + icon.

Make sure your file has the same format as the given columns.

If you do not want to have all student information in the system, you can uncheck these in your settings. (Settings -> Import & export, once done click on ‘ok’ at the bottom of the page.) We suggest to only check the required fields and group or parent group.

Click on the box with the arrow pointing outwards to upload your file and click on ‘add’.

Example of an Excel file:

On the page of the file, you then can see the default settings and a table with the file contents, as configured in the Import and export settings. Errors are listed before the table and shown in the table. Choose the right setting for the header row (yes or no) and click on ‘Import’ to import all the students. When in the general settings ‘temporary generated password via email’ is selected, for every new account a welcome message is sent out immediately.

Follow these rules when assembling a file:

  • The fields ‘Username’, ‘First name’, ‘Last name’ and ‘Email address’ may not be left empty.

  • When you have chosen to have a short form for new accounts with only email addresses in General settings, the ‘Username’, ‘First name’, ‘Last name’ are optional.

  • When a student with the same ‘Username’ exists and this student has the same ‘First name’ and ‘Last name’, no new student account will be created. No error message is generated. If the student is not yet a member of the specified ‘Group’, the student will be added to the group.

  • When a student with the same ‘Username’ exists and this student has a different ‘First name’ or ‘Last name’, an error message is generated.

  • The field ‘Password’ will be ignored if the account details are sent automatically by e-mail. For more information.

  • The field ‘Password’ may not be empty if initial passwords are settable by the administrator or teacher in the General settings.

  • The field ‘Country’ contains the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code and the field ‘Region’ the last part of the ISO 3166-2 code. Regions are only supported for a limited number of countries.

  • The name of the group may refer to an existing group. In this case, the student is added to the group.

  • If the name of the group does not exist yet, it is created during import.

  • When a ‘Parent group’ has been specified, the new ‘Group’ will be created as a child. Otherwise the new group is added as a ‘main’ group that is not nested.

  • Use several lines (rows in Excel) to assign students to different groups. Make sure only the field ‘Group’ (and optionally the ‘Parent group’) differs.

  • You can use a header line (e.g. “Username, First name, Surname…” etc). You can specify this in the Import and export settings. The first line or row of a file with a header line will be ignored.

If you want to delete the file, because for example it was successfully imported or because it contains incorrect values, you can delete it manually. Click the icon X ‘Delete file’ and confirm.

Introduction

The Electude LMS (Learning Management System) is an electronic learning environment. Your organisation (college or company) has its own website with its own environment. In this environment teachers can assign modules to students and monitor their results. Which modules are available depends on your licence. Not all functionality described in this manual may be available to you, because the licence limits this. As the administrator of the web site you provide the teachers with access to the LMS. You can import and export (large numbers) of students. And finally you can change the settings for the web site.

License

This page shows the expiration date of your license and whether your license will be extended automatically each year. A month before expiration and on the expiration date itself you will receive an email to remind you of the status of your license. The license contains counters. These counters determine what functionality is available on the website, and how many students can use this.

Counters and usage

A counter comprises a group of products. These determine which modules you can access. Depending on your license, the usage is measured using one of these methods:

  • modules: The total value of all counters will be incremented every time a student opens a new module. Repeated usage is not counted. The counter will only be incremented when a student opens a module for the first time. All successive sessions will not be counted.

  • students: A counter that measures students grants students access to all products in the product group for the duration of the license. Students that only open modules from their personal history will not be counted. When a student finishes a module, this module is added to the history (unless stated otherwise for the product groups listed below).

  • SCORM sessions: The total value of all counters will be incremented every time a student opens a module in SCORM compliant LMS. All (repeated) usage is measured.

A student that is not assigned to a group, is only able to open modules from his personal history, and therefore will not be counted by any counter. When you have counters for which students have to pay, you can click on such a counter in the overview table. This shows which students are active and what the expiry date for each student is. Below the overview table you can also download these data for all counters.

Product groups

The modules that are available in the Electude LMS belong to a particular counter of the license. This is defined by the product group containing the module.

Your license may not comprise all product groups. If a product group is missing, the functionality that belongs to it will not be available for teachers and students of the LMS.

This is a list of all product groups:

  • lesson: Lessons are specially developed modules you can ‘play’ in your browser. They contain images, animations, simulations, texts and questions on a series of learning objectives. A student can review lessons he has finished through his personal history for 5 years.

  • practical work: This has the same format as lessons; practical work usually requires special hardware.

  • tailor-made lesson: This kind of lesson is custom developed for you in assignment.

  • simulation: Teachers can add these modules. Every module uses the Electude Simulator to replicate a specific failure. Students are tasked with solving a real world problem in the browser. The teacher can set the parameters of the simulation.

  • WorkshopData: This module provides access to an online database with car maintenance and repair information. Direct access to the WorkshopData is not available through the student history.

  • TruckData: This module provides access to an online database with truck maintenance and repair information. Direct access to the TruckData is not available through the student history.

  • links: Teachers can add links to other web pages themselves.

  • files: Teachers can add files (e.g. images or PDF documents).

  • DIY lesson: DIY lessons can be ‘played’ in your browser in the same way as normal lessons, but you can change and add the content yourself.

  • DIY test: A DIY test is similar to a DIY lesson. When the student answers a question however, no direct feedback will be given and the evaluation of the results can be done automatically.

  • DIY task: Unlike lessons and tests, Tasks are not evaluated automatically. Task results need to be recorded by the teacher manually, by reviewing student answers.

Your files

If your license contains a counter for ‘files’, this page shows how much disk space these files use, and what the maximum allowed storage is.

Logging out

Below the main menu on the right, is the button to log out of the LMS.

Login attempts log

On this page recent login attempts for your account are listed. Of all login attempts over the last 2 months for which your username was used, these details are shown:

  • the time

  • whether the attempt was successful or not

  • the IP address from which the attempt was made

  • the used operating system and browser

Below this table you can also see all failed login attempts on student and teacher accounts over the last two months.

Privacy

If you want to only allow editing of account details by the administrator and teachers, you can select that users cannot change their account details. This is useful when you pseudonymize accounts. Here you can limit the personal data that will be stored of users. The checked fields will be stored. All fields that are switched off, will disappear from the forms to manage accounts and from the Import and export settings for CSV files. When your site already contains data in a field that is switched off, the number of accounts that have a filled-in field is displayed. Note: if you confirm the settings by clicking ‘ok’, these data will be erased irrevocably.

Product groups

This option in the main menu is only visible when it is enables for your site. You can use this to define your own product groups. Teachers may make modules or courses they created available to third parties (‘publish’ them). For more information see the teacher’s manual. You need to contact Electude International to discuss the way the content in a product group is distributed, before third parties can access the content.

Restoring a deleted account

Deleted teachers can be restored within one week. To do so, click the icon of the arrow in the row of the teacher in the table of deleted teachers. If a teacher account is not restored, the account and all associated data will automatically, permanently be erased one week after deletion. Note: the deleted data cannot be restored!

Restoring a deleted student account

Deleted students can be restored within one week. To do so, click the icon of the arrow in the rows of the student in the table of deleted students. The student is restored to the list of unassigned students. If a student account is not restored, the account and all associated data will automatically, permanently be erased one week after deletion. Note: the deleted data cannot be restored!

Result notifications

Result notifications automatically send the student results from the Electude LMS to another system or web service. On this page you can configure the result notifications settings and send test notifications. Notifications will become active only after a test notification has been successfully delivered to the other system using the set configuration. When the configuration changes, again a test notification has to be delivered successfully to activate notifications. Notifications that cannot be delivered will be visible on this page for one week. During this period they will be automatically resent. You can also resend them manually so you can see the result of the delivery attempt.

Setting up self-enrollment

Students that have an Electude account can now register themselves for specific groups. However, self-registration for a group must also be allowed by the administrator and approved by a teacher.  The administrator of the Electude platform needs to allow self-enrolment:

  1. Login as administrator and navigate to ‘Settings > General > Edit settings’.

  2. Enable self-enrolment in the field ‘Groups with self-enrolment’ via the drop-down menu. Define whether the teacher has to approve a student request to join a group.

  3. Click ‘Ok’.

Settings for the content

Default additional text to content

Here you can enter a default text that students see when they look at their learning content. An alternative text can be set by the teacher for each group. For more information, see the teacher’s manual.

Email for feedback

Here you can specify the email address that students can send comments to for questions in the lesson content. If an email address is filled in, a comments button appears below each question for students. If this field is left empty and no teacher who wishes to receive feedback exists, the button is not displayed.

Lesson score

By default, all answer attempts are used to calculate the score of students. You can change this so that only the first attempt is used. Please note: this does not work retroactively! For example, if previous results are calculated using all attempts and the setting is changed, new results will not be comparable to old ones.

Test mode

In tests students will not receive direct feedback as to whether an answer is correct or incorrect. This setting determines the way a test is taken:

  • 1 session, answers can be changed. With this setting, the student submits all answers when he/she has finished. During the session the student can browse through the test and change the answers he/she has previously submitted.

  • 1 session, answers cannot be changed. With this setting the student submits every answer separately. During the session the student can browse through the test but cannot change any answer.

  • Multiple sessions, answers cannot be changed. Same setting as above, except that this time multiple sessions are allowed.

Access to tests

This setting allows for restricted access to tests. Only when access to a test is granted by the teacher explicitly, the student is able to start the test.

Sorting lists

Tables of teachers and students in the LMS can be sorted by clicking on the title of the desired column. E.g. you can sort the students in a group by last name, by clicking on the word ‘last name’ at the top of the table. When you click ‘last name’ once more, the sorting order is reversed.

Student accounts

Normally student accounts are created by the teacher. The administrator can only do a batch import of students. If desired, the administration of the student accounts can be fully controlled by you. To do this, you need to limit the rights of the teachers so they cannot edit students and groups (see rights). A teacher account for the administrator (with all rights) might be useful to make small changes in the student accounts.

Deleting unassigned students

Student accounts that are deleted by teachers from groups appear in the list of unassigned students. These students can still log in and review modules that are listed in their history, but will be unable to open new modules. Therefore a student that is unassigned cannot use a product group associated with your license. For more information, see Licence. You can delete a student that is not assigned to a group by clicking the icon X in the row of that student. Teachers with the right to delete students can also delete individual students that are not assigned. As the administrator you can also delete all students that are not assigned. Click the icon X ‘Delete unassigned students at the top of the page and confirm by clicking ‘delete’.

Exporting student accounts

The complete list of student accounts can be exported. Click ‘all students’. This will generate a CSV file with all students, in the same format as described in Importing student accounts. There are however some small differences:

  • The file contains an extra header line, containing the names of the fields.

  • Passwords will not be exported. This field is empty.

  • The field group is empty for students that are not member of any group.

Students

Normally student accounts are created by the teacher. However, only the administrator is able to do a batch import of students. This is very helpful when you need to enroll a large number of students. Administrators are also able to restore deleted student accounts and set up self-enrollment for students.

Teacher accounts

Teachers provide the learning content to students and monitor their progress. Depending on their rights, they can also administer the student accounts.

Teacher profiles

Teacher profiles offer a way to manage the settings of teachers centrally. Instead of changing these settings for every account, accounts can be linked to a profile. All linked accounts inherit the settings of the profile.

Creating a teacher profile

Click on the ‘New teacher profile’ icon  . A profile requires a unique name. In addition to the settings for the rights, you can also define a module filter. The teacher then only sees certain types of modules. By forcing the filter to be always active, you can further limit the access rights of teachers. For example, you can ensure certain teachers do not have access to tests or test results, while others only have access to grade practical assignments (tasks).

Editing a teacher profile

A teacher profile can be edited by navigating to the page of the teacher profile. To do so, click on the row of the profile in the table. Then click the icon   ‘Edit teacher profile’ and edit the desired fields. Click ‘ok’ to confirm.

Deleting a teacher profile

A teacher profile can be deleted if it is not used in a teacher account. Click the icon   ‘Delete teacher profile’ of the page of the profile and confirm.

Teacher rights

The rights of teachers are grouped as follows:

  • Editing students and groups:

    • Creating a group

    • Editing a group

    • Deleting a group

    • Moving a group

    • Creating a student account

    • Editing a student account

    • Deleting a student from a group

    • Adding a student to another group

SCORM settings

These settings are only visible when your licence measures your usage in SCORM sessions. These settings are intended to use the Electude modules in another, SCORM compliant LMS. When you use SCORM, the student administration and the assignment of content is done in the other LMS. Teachers can download SCORM packages of single modules (as a resource package with one SCO) or of courses (as a content aggregation package with multiple SCOs) and use them in the other LMS. As the administrator you should perform some actions first:

  • Select which SCORM version you want to use. The packages the teacher downloads, comply with this version.

  • Enter the domain name of the other LMS. This is the site students log on to start the modules. When the indicated domain name does not correspond with the site where the modules are played as a SCORM package, the modules will not work. Student will receive a ‘Access denied’ message instead. Only the usage from the domain name you entered is measured in your licence.

To use SCORM packages Internet access is required. When the other LMS is deployed on an intranet without Internet access, the SCORM package cannot be started. It uses components that are hosted on the Electude LMS website.
