SAP Learning Solution (PE-LSO)

Purpose

The SAP Learning Solution, a blended learning solution, offers you an all-round, Web-based solution for all your learning needs. It covers both traditional classroom training and computer-based training, known as e-learning. The chief components of the solution are:

?     Learning Portal

Learners log on to the enterprise portal via Web browser, from where they access the learning portal containing details of the corporate training and education offering presented in a clear, personalized form. From here, the learner can register for courses. If company-specific regulations dictate, an approval process is triggered and the registration request is routed to the employee’s supervisor for approval or rejection.

The administrative processes involved in planning, completing, and canceling e-learning courses and curricula are handled by the back-end system, Training Management. The Training Management system is integrated with other applications to enable billing and internal activity allocation. Training Management is a component of the SAP Learning Solution.

?     Learning Management System (LMS)

This system controls the individual learning process and uses didactic strategies to guide the learner through the course, according to his or her personal learning style and progress. Data on learning progress, achieved learning objectives, and test results is stored.

?     Authoring Environment

Course authors can benefit from the templates in the LMS's modern authoring environment to create or change course content quickly and efficiently, tailored to the needs of specific groups of persons. They can reuse existing course content and integrate interactive elements such as simulations or tests.

The training administrator has direct access to content stored in the Authoring Environment when planning and creating the course catalog.

External authoring tools can be integrated seamlessly.

?     Content Management System (CMS)

All learning content is stored and administered in the Content Management System.

In addition to its own Content Management System, SAP Learning Solution offers a WebDAV interface (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning), which enables use of WebDAV-compatible storage.

The SAP Learning Solution is based on the existing Training and Event Managementsystem. We adopted and extended the existing Training and Event Management BW Content for the SAP Learning Solution. The SAP Business Information Warehouse provides you with a meaningful analysis tool, which you can use to report on SAP Learning Solution data. For example, you can use the following queries:

?     Number of Participants and Cancellations - 0LSO_C01_Q0001

?     Training Duration - 0LSO_C01_Q0004

?     Annual Comparison of Bookings - 0LSO_C01_Q0002

?     Annual Comparison of Revenues - 0LSO_C01_Q0008

?     Participation and Cancellation Fees - 0LSO_C01_Q0005

?     Fee Distribution by Internal and External Bookings - 0LSO_C01_Q0006

?     My Cost Centers Training and Education Costs Current - 0LSO_C01_Q1001

?     Annual Comparison of Resource Costs - 0LSO_C02_Q0001

?     Participation and Cancellation Rates - 0LSO_C01_Q0003

?     Annual Comparison of Course Costs - 0LSO_C01_Q0009

?     Training and Education by Organizational Assignment -  0LSO_C01_Q0010
