  1. OSIsoft PI Accreditation or Certification courses for Customer

    Customers also need individual employees to gain OSIsoft PI skills to help transform their business. OSIsoft PI Accreditation or Certification Program will also help customers to build and validate skills to get more out from the OSIsoft PI instead of only depending on PI Integrators & Partners. Customers here need to keep OSIsoft PI skills fresh to increase the uses of PI.

  2. Uninstall Internet Explorer from the Training Cloud Environments

    Internet Explorer is an outdated, insecure, unsupported browser that nobody should use. It should be uninstalled from the Training Cloud Environments to help promote best practices.

  3. Separate the "Specialized" groups in learning paths into "Specialized" and "Advanced"

    The "Specialized" group was previously called "Advanced", but neither name accurately describes all courses within the group because some courses would be more appropriately labelled as "Specialized" and others would be more appropriately labelled as "Advanced".

    Please reserve the "Specialized" label for courses about deprecated or uncommon PI programs. i.e.:
    • RtReports (needed only in certain industries)
    • PI ProcessBook (deprecated and needed only by organizations that have not yet migrated away from it)
    • PI Integrator For Business Analytics (cost-effective only for large PI Systems or at the corporate level)

    Any course that is currently in a "Specialized" group…

  4. 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…

  5. Incorrect "correct answer" in "O Básico do PI System"

    The "correct answer" to the question below in the "O Básico do PI System" course is incorrect. Please fix this.

    The question is:
    Qual das seguintes expressões de tempo do PI NÃO mostrarão dados para um incidente que ocorreu ontem às 08:30h da noite? Considere o tempo atual como sendo: 14-Abr-2020 10:00:00

  6. 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.

  7. Remove "NEW - " from the beginning of course descriptions

    All of the courses that have "NEW - " at the beginning of their description are at least 2 years old. Meanwhile, courses that are actually new, such as "Asset Framework: Basics", "Calculations and Asset Analytics", "Event Frames and Notifications", and "PI System Administration: Beyond the Basics", do not use "NEW - " in their descriptions.

    The "NEW - " is meaningless clutter at this point. Please remove it wherever it appears, including when "NEW - " is in another language.

  8. Eliminate redirects in the footer of OSIsoft Learning

    For any link, in the footer of OSIsoft Learning, that starts with https://osisoft.com, replace https://osisoft.com with https://www.osisoft.com to avoid redirects and make the pages load faster.

  9. Provide a link to the playlist in the same language as the course

    At the end of the "About this course" section of the self-paced courses, there is usually a link to the course playlist on YouTube. However, the link always leads to the English playlist regardless of the language of the course.

    In the "About this course" section of all self-paced courses, please provide a link to the playlist of the same course in the same language.

  10. Unhide the non-retired hidden ("search-only") courses

    The All Content page (https://learning.osisoft.com/page/all-content) does not show all courses by default. Some of these courses are hidden because they are retired, and the retired courses do not allow users to register for them. However, most of the hidden courses are not retired and do allow users to register for them. Almost all hidden courses can still be found using the search bar.

    If these courses are hidden for a reason, then this reason should be stated on the course page. If these courses are not meant to be taken by customers (maybe the courses aren't finished?), then…

  11. Remove the English-manual warning from the "About this course" section of the courses held in France

    All of the courses that are held in France contain the warning "Veuillez noter que les environnements virtuels et les manuels seront en anglais." at the end of the "About this course" section of their respective pages. Translation: "Please note that the virtual environments and the manuals will be in English.

    However, the course workbook is available for download just above this note, and it is in French, so unless "les manuels" includes something else, the warning should be changed to simply say: "*Veuillez noter que les environnements virtuels seront en anglais."

    Links to the courses held in France:

  12. Document the equivalence between courses

    Some courses have the same content but in a different language, and each instructor-led course contains the content of ≥1 self-paced course. However, it is not clear exactly which courses are equivalent to each other.

    Documentation of this can let a customer know which self-paced courses they should not take if they have already taken the equivalent instructor-led courses. If a customer has already taken a few self-paced courses, this documentation can help them decide if they would like to continue taking self-paced courses or opt for an instructor-led course instead. Lastly, this documentation will reveal the self-paced courses that…

  13. Combine the "Hours" columns from different languages in My Profile & translate the "Hours" column title based on the selected language

    All of the courses that I have taken on OSIsoft Learning have been in English with the exception of "[日本語/Japanese] PI DataLinkを使用した基本的なレポートの作成", which is in Japanese.

    On OSIsoft Learning, I log in, click on my picture in the top right corner, and go to My Profile. In the table, I see an "Hours" column, which is populated by the English courses, and a "時間" (Hours) column, which is populated by the Japanese course. There should not be separate Hours columns for each language. They should use the same "Hours" column, and the "Hours" title should be translated based on the…

    If you scan https://learning.osisoft.com with a broken link checker, such as the one linked below, you will find that the OSIsoft Learning website contains some broken links. Please fix these.

  15. Sell self-paced courses based only on content and not language

    If a user purchases a self-paced course, they should be given access to all language variants of that course.
    .
    .
    This will:

    • allow multilingual users to focus on finding the course with the correct content and not have to worry as much about language

    • eliminate any regret due to a user purchasing a course in a language that they don't know as well, only to realize that a variant exists in a language that they know better; this may be due to poor research or the fact that some courses are hidden, cannot be filtered for, and/or…

  16. Replace the blurry OSIsoft logo

    In the top left corner of OSIsoft Learning, the OSIsoft logo is noticeably blurry. It is blurrier than the OSIsoft logo on OSIsoft's other websites and blurrier than it needs to be to smooth out the edges with anti-aliasing. Please use a sharper version of the logo.

  17. Use "OSIsoft" instead of "OSIsoft Learning" as the Issuing Organization when you add a course to LinkedIn

    On OSIsoft Learning, when you click on your picture in the top right corner and click on "My Profile", you can click on the "Add to profile" button of any completed course to add that course to your LinkedIn profile.

    One effect of this button is that the Issuing Organization is automatically filled in to be "OSIsoft Learning". I feel that this should be changed to "OSIsoft", partly because "OSIsoft Learning" is not a separate organization. More importantly, "OSIsoft Learning" will not show OSIsoft's logo beside the certification on your LinkedIn profile, whereas "OSIsoft" will show OSIsoft's logo. The logo…

  18. Update the "PI System Infrastructure Specialist: Readiness Exam" links

    The "PI System Infrastructure Specialist: Readiness Exam" link is broken wherever it appears, such as on certificate pages or in the error message when you try to register for PI System Installation Accreditation without completing the prerequisites. The latter case and an example of the former case are linked below.
    https://verify.skilljar.com/c/gmx5qav8rw2m
    https://learning.osisoft.com/pi-system-installation-accreditation

    Ideally, please fix the broken link wherever it is used, but if that is not feasible, a redirect to the correct page would be the next best option. I'm guessing that the correct page is the one linked below:

  19. Drill down from country to city in the Location / Time Zone filter group on the All Content page

    On the All Content page (https://learning.osisoft.com/page/all-content), the Location / Time Zone filter group currently lists 17 cities sorted in alphabetical order of city name. This is difficult to navigate and is akin to sorting numbers starting from their last digit.

    Consider turning this filter group into a hierarchy where you have country on the top level and cities within each country. Ideally, the countries would be expandable to show the city, much like how each filter group is expandable/collapsible. Also, ideally, the countries would also behave like a filter item, allowing all cities within a country to be…

  20. Clarify "One Month" in "Training Cloud Environments (One Month Access)"

    The paid self-paced courses come with 30 days of access to the Training Cloud Environment. Does the "Training Cloud Environments (One Month Access)" (https://learning.osisoft.com/training-cloud-environments-one-month-access) also provide 30 days of access? Or maybe "One Month" means "from the time of purchase up until the day with the same day number next month", in which case the number of days varies but the price doesn't.

    Please clarify what "One Month" means. If it is a fixed number of days; for example, 30; then "One Month" should be replaced with "30-Day".
