When using the Accord LMS, hovering over information icons displays helpful tips.


This article will describe the general approach behind using Learning Roles.

Purpose of Learning Roles

Learning Roles are an efficient and logical method of getting the proper training to the proper Learners.

Learning Content, referred to as Learning Elements, are assigned to and associated with selected Learning Roles. Learners are then subsequently assigned to specific Learning Roles, which then grants them access to any Learning Elements associated with these Roles.

The Learning Role Management section has its own dedicated node for easy access. By using this feature you can create and manage any Learning Roles assigned to any Learners under your supervision.

Example Usage of Learning Roles

As a common use example, new hire employees are assigned to a New Hires Learning Role. Being assigned to this Role will grant them access to the specific Learning Elements (LE) enrolled with this Role.

What happens when any training or courses need to be changed or updated?

When any Learning Elements associated with a given Learning Role are periodically added, updated or removed, this simultaneously updates the Learning Elements which Learners in this Role have access to. 

Through the usage of Learning Roles, any Role associated Learners will always be kept properly in-sync with the most current training.

Access Roles

  • After logging-in with LMS Admin credentials, click on the Roles tab.
  • Ensure the proper Current Team is selected. Menu located lower-left of screen.

In Conclusion

In broad overview, Learning Roles are an efficient method of getting the proper training to the proper Learners.
