  1. 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

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    RtReports Designer Course in OSIsoft Learning courses

    Would be great to be able to go through an RtReports designer course @ OSIsoft learning.

    3. Running data aggregations\calculations in AF and presenting it in RtReports in appropriate formatting
    4. Creating Trends efficiently and presenting in appropriate formatting in RtReports

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

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

    learning.osisoft.com can take 10 seconds to load for users that are not in North America. Fortunately, there are some low-hanging fruit to make it even faster. Please consider minifying the HTML, JavaScript, and CSS files and implementing other changes pointed out in the link below:

  9. Local online course facilitator for Asia Pacific customers

    As a customer who is based in China, the time difference between me and the course facilitator in the United States is too long, resulting in opposite work hours. So when I had some questions raised in Discussion Forums, the response came in the next day.

  10. Programming in PI Web API Online Course: Edit instructional videos

    The videos need to be edited properly (cut the parts where the instructor restarted the phrase to correct a mistake, etc.).

  11. Incorrect playlist link for all self-paced French & Portuguese courses

    The same playlist is linked at the end of the "About this course" page of all of these courses. The linked playlist is the English version of "Visualizing PI System Data with PI Vision". Please correct these links.

  12. Mistakes in & feedback for courses in the Project Manager learning path

    Getting started with OSIsoft and the PI System

    https://learning.osisoft.com/getting-started-with-osisoft-and-the-pi-system/504113
    "OSIsot" should be "OSIsoft"

    PI System - Initiation and Planning

    https://learning.osisoft.com/pi-system-initiation-and-planning/516676
    Reword this question: "Opponents include them in the process to address their concerns and transform into supporter" (True or False)

    Lesson 4 - PI System Architecture
    This section is very outdated. There are no mentions of PI AF SDK, PI Connectors, or PI Adapters. PI API for WIS is mentioned only in the text and not in the videos.

  13. Suggestions for the text portion of "Configuring Analytics with PI AF"

    https://learning.osisoft.com/configuring-analytics-with-pi-af-2/496248
    Change "PI square" to "PI Square"

    https://learning.osisoft.com/configuring-analytics-with-pi-af-2/311870
    Eliminate "or PI ProcessBook". OSIsoft no longer sells PI ProcessBook and will be dropping support for it at the end of 2024. Eliminating mentions of PI ProcessBook should help to make it clearer that PI Vision should be used instead of PI ProcessBook.

  14. Make it optional to specify the email address of the instructor in the course evaluation

    The course evaluation requires you to enter the email address of the instructor, but online courses don't really have an instructor, so lots of students will either put in a dummy email address or just skip the evaluation. Please make it optional to specify the email address of the instructor so then students can easily proceed with the rest of the course evaluation.

  15. Better distinction of links in course text

    When a link appears in the text on a page within a course, it looks very similar to non-link text. Please make it more obvious which text contains links and which text does not.

  16. Empty grey bar when viewing a page in a course

    When you view a page in a course, the grey bar at the top of the page is empty. Outside of these pages, it contains a link to myOSIsoft and the selected language. Please either restore the functionality of the grey bar for course pages or eliminate the grey bar from course pages. Right now, it is the worst of both worlds: it takes up space but doesn't do anything.

  17. Mistakes in "Introduction to Developing with the PI System"

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/638555
    There is no course workbook. This page shouldn't exist unless there is one.

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/641759

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/638558
    The poll does not exist anymore. Polls are not supported on and were not migrated to the new PI Square. This course page should be deleted.

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/641788
    "OSIsoft Messaging Format" should be "OSIsoft Message Format" in the video and in the titles of the page and the video

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/641791
    "PI Datalink" should be "PI DataLink"

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/672351
    The "s" on "Batches" is missing bolding

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/642206
    "It's" should be "Its".

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/642255
    "Advance" should be "Advanced"

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/670500
    "User Voice"…

  18. Correct mistakes with the course "Visualisation des données système PI avec PI Vision"

    This course has 2 mistakes:
    • The title should be changed to "Visualisation des données du PI System avec PI Vision".
    • The course appears in the results when you filter for courses in Montréal, even though it is a self-paced course.

    Please fix both of these issues.

  19. Correct the misspellings of "PI DataLink"

    On the All Content page (https://learning.osisoft.com/page/all-content), do a Ctrl + F search for "DataLink" and you will see results such as "DataLInk" and "Datalink". Please correct these to "DataLink".

  20. Be able to find "[日本語/Japanese] PI DataLinkを使用した基本的なレポートの作成" using filters on content type and language

    The course "[日本語/Japanese] PI DataLinkを使用した基本的なレポートの作成" currently only appears on the All Content page (https://learning.osisoft.com/page/all-content) when no filters are active. Instead, the course should be classified as a self-paced Japanese course. This would mean that Japanese would need to be added to the list of languages.
