When using the Accord LMS, hovering over information icons displays helpful tips.
This article will explain the purpose and process of adding an Access Code for a given Team.
What is the Purpose behind an Access Code?
An Access Code is a digital code used to allow selected Learners to have access to specific learning content.
How are Access Codes Digitally Defined?
Access Codes are similar to RSVP codes with the exception that they support a many-to-many relationship with Learning Roles and can also be specific for specific Team Memberships.
After configuration and creation, Access Codes can be submitted to grant specific groups of Learners, or any specific Users, any number of Learning Roles (both to the local portal and/or other portals within the DNN installation).
Access Codes can be used to grant Team Membership; which may frequently come into play with larger hierarchical training structures.
If a given Leaner is granted access to selected learning content thru use of an Access Code and this same Learner has authorized access to a Learning Role on a different Accord LMS portal, the same access code will validate usage for that portal as well.
