  4. Course Playlist

    The individual presentations for the class do not seem to be linked in any way on youtube - every time a course completes, I should really be presented the next video in the class

  6. Higher Quality Videos

    Our videos are mostly shot in poor lighting. Although exported to 720p, the footage looks like 480p with 24fps. Please consider using better lighting and a higher quality camera.
    Also, please white balance and lightening the footage in a video editor during post production.

  7. Make more videos about the theoretical side of PI

    It's great to see videos about statistical quality control and the swinging door algorithm. I think that having more videos of this nature will really help PI administrators understand PI's capabilities rather than just its features.

    This is also a chance for OSIsoft to explain some of their design decisions, especially those that naïvely seem like bad idea but actually have sound reasoning behind them.

    Lastly, the process of making these videos will likely reveal insights and improvements, since it forces an in-depth look at PI and a justification for its design.

    I will post video ideas in the comments.

  8. Label courses about deprecated PI programs as such and state the replacement program

    If a customer is not paying attention to which PI programs are or will be deprecated (and there are quite a few of them), then they can end up wasting their time and money taking a course about a program that OSIsoft plans to trash in the next while.

    Please help steer the customer's attention, time, and money towards learning about programs that OSIsoft is actually pushing for. This will speed up both the adaptation of the new programs and the downfall of the old ones.

    The courses about deprecated PI programs are:
    • PI WebParts Class
    • Building Basic…

  11. Provide a VLE for PI Manual Logger Web

    It seems most videos for PI Manual Logger are outdated.
    In my experience setting up PI Manual Logger Web can be tricky and time consuming (security wise at least). It would be nice to have an environment that is all built to experiment with the product.

  13. classroom training for coplex topics

    There should be classroom trainings for complex topics. there classroom trainings for easy topics (like PI Visualization). For complex topics trainings are missing. for example "Custom Symbols" or "AF Transformer"

  14. Live chat with online course facilitators

    I would like to suggest 'chat' module integrated with online courses so that student can easily chat with the facilitator instantly. Although my facilitator has given me 200% support on email but it would be more easier if it will be on chat so the questions and clarifications can be resolved quickly.

  17. Provide text/transcript for the online course to make materials more searchable

    Videos are nice, but a text transcript with images would be fine as well. (powerpoint even). That way you could search for a topic easily rather than trying to remember where in the videos a topic is covered.
