  5. 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. 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.

  7. 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    It seems most videos for PI Manual Logger are outdated.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.

  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…

  12. Offer Self-Paced Online Courses options in other languages

    I've got the question coming from some customers if we offered our self-paced online courses in other languages. In my case, the request was for German, but I'm sure other language options would be helpful.

  13. 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.

  16. 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. Be able to filter for free content on the All Content page

    The only obviously free course is PI System Basics because this is advertised on the home page of OSIsoft Learning. However, OSIsoft has much more free content that can help users get a broad overview of PI and earn certificates in the process.

    This free content is especially useful if the designated PI person at an organization is not yet familiar with PI. Whether they will be an administrator or power user, they will need to have a basic understanding of all roles and of how to engage others with PI.

    On the All Content page, please add a filter…

  18. Walk through the execution of the PI Connector For UFL's INI files

    The PI Connector For UFL does not have a graphical INI file editor, so customers must either use the one from the PI Interface For UFL or write the code manually. In the user guide, there are text descriptions of how to write the code and how it is executed, but it can be difficult to visualize, and customers end up either wasting a lot of time learning the language or using the PI Interface For UFL instead.

    Please make a video that walks through the execution and flow of control of the INI files, highlighting line-by-line which part of…

  19. Include software version numbers on online course outlines

    Before purchasing an online course, you should be able to see which software version numbers the course uses to determine if it will be suitable for you, or where you should expect things to be a little different. A simple list of software used along with their version numbers in the course outline should do.

  20. Reduce the load time of learning.osisoft.com
