Role Awards

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


This article will describe the purpose and process behind setting Role Awards for your various Learning Elements.

What are Role Awards?

A Role Award is a new assignment of a Learning Role to an LMS Learner.

Using Learning Roles is an effective way to continually get the right types of training to the appropriate Learners.

In a simple approach, specific types of learning material is assigned to different Learning Roles. 

Learners can then be assigned these Roles, which will then allow these Learners to stay in-sync with their proper types of ongoing training.

How does an LMS Admin use Role Awards?

Let's say that an LMS Admin wants to ultimately assign a given Learner to a specific Learning Role, but chooses for this Learner to take a competency test first.

An LMS Admin can set Role Awards for specific Learning Elements, which will automatically assign Learners to specific Learning Roles, once they complete or pass an initial Learning Element, such as a test or quiz.
