  • The course content can be customized using a Notes client to meet your specific requirements and to deploy, administer and support the course.

Self Paced Learning - TLCC’s user courses are designed to allow students to proceed through the material at their own pace. Students can start the course at any time and return to the course as needed to learn or review the topics. Your user support team monitors the integrated course Discussion database and responds to students’ questions. This "open door" design allows thousands of students to take the course at the same time, makes it easy to coordinate training with your rollout, and reduces the need for course administration and instructor support.

Interactive Student Activities - A student activity is combined with almost every lesson. This learning model provides immediate reinforcement of the important points or procedures in the lesson and maximizes retention.

NEW! Movies - The Sametime 8 courses include short movies which illustrate the procedures in the course. These movies have text callouts to highlight what the learner should focus on while watching the movie.

Course Discussion Monitoring and Support - TLCC’s user courses include a Discussion database which allows students to post questions linked to the lessons in the course. The Discussion database provides a communication link between your user support team and the students as they take the course. The advantages of providing course discussion monitoring and support are:
  • Allows you to easily provide specific student support.
  • Students can get help and do not feel they have nowhere to turn if they are “lost.”
  • Provides immediate feedback during the rollout and training phases of your upgrade project.
  • Students can learn from other students’ questions and answers.
An agent can be enabled to send an email to the user support team to notify them of any new posts in the Discussions. In addition, the Discussion database can be disabled if you desire not to use it in your deployment.

Instant Messaging Support - A button can be enabled to allow students to chat with instructors if they are using a Notes 6.5 or higher client or a web browser to view the course. This button is available in the lessons form and also on all discussion forms. The feature requires an Instant Messaging (Sametime) server.

Help system - Context-sensitive help is available to describe how to use the course, how to post questions, and how to use the course-related discussions.

Module Self Assessments or Quizzes - Each module includes a self-assessment quiz. The format for the self-assessments is Multiple Choice and True/False questions. For each question, the student can display the correct answer and compare their response. Self-assessments provide immediate feedback, allowing the student to assess their understanding of material presented in the current course module.
Optional Final Exam - An optional final exam can be enabled to test each student on their comprehension of the material or to ensure compliance with mandatory course completion policies. Detailed exam summary results are posted in the Exams database, allowing an Exam Administrator to identify students who may require additional training.

Optional Course Customization - The material in the TLCC user courses can be customized to best suit the needs of the target students and your implementation. Detailed procedures and customization recommendations are included in the Course Setup Database which is included with the course material. The advantages of TLCC course customization include:
  • Customize content to best suit the needs of the target students and your implementation.
  • Create and customize different versions of the course for different groups of students.
  • Use the familiar Notes client to easily customize the content.

System Requirements - Either a Notes client or a web browser is needed by each student to be able to take the course and do all demonstrations and activities.

Course Pricing - TLCC’s user courses are sold via a one-time site license based on the number of users. The site license includes access to all of the courses listed above. TLCC provides support for installation related questions for 30 days after purchase. The purchase of a maintenance contract allows for access to the latest releases of the user courses and installation and customization support beyond the 30-day period. This optional annual maintenance is available for 15% of the total license fee.
