  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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:
    https://learning.osisoft.com/pi-system-infrastructure-specialist

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. Revise the Content Type filter group on the All Content page

    The items currently listed in the Content Type filter group on the All Content page (https://learning.osisoft.com/page/all-content) are:
    • Self paced
    • Instructor led
    • Virtual instructor led

    Please change these to:
    • Self-paced
    • Instructor-led (virtual)
    • Instructor-led (in-person)

    Reasoning behind the proposed change:
    • The added hyphens make the items more grammatically correct.
    • By beginning with "Instructor-led", the last 2 items align better visually with each other and makes it much more obvious at a glance that both are instructor-led.
    • I moved "Instructor-led (virtual)" to be between the other 2 because it "bridges" the other…

  8. Add an "Instructor-Led Course" filter group to the All Content page

    There are only 6 distinct instructor-led courses, but there are 69 variations of these. There are few enough distinct instructor-led courses for it to be practical for them to have their own filter group on the All Content page (https://learning.osisoft.com/page/all-content). Some users will always prefer instructor-led courses over self-paced ones, so this should help those users more easily see what is available to them.

    If you are thinking "Why would we add such a filter group for only the instructor-led courses?", I have 3 answers:

    • If all courses (instructor-led + self-paced) courses were to be listed in…

  9. Add a "Product" filter group to the All Content page

    Please add a "Product" filter group to the All Content page (https://learning.osisoft.com/page/all-content) to allow courses to be filtered by the PI products that they cover. This is especially useful for courses that cover multiple PI products or that cover a PI product that is not mentioned in the course's title.

    Most instructor-led courses fall into this boat. For example, if I want to learn about PI Vision, I'll search for "PI Vision" and not "Visualizing PI System Data (Clients)".

  10. On the 1st page of the course evaluation, translate the dropdown menu items to the selected language & have non-English courses listed

    The dropdown menu items on the 1st page of the course evaluation are always in English, regardless of the language that you selected for the evaluation. Also, there is no option to select non-English versions of courses.

    Please change this so that non-English versions of courses can be selected and so that the course evaluation can be completed entirely in the selected language (other than perhaps the name of a course in a different language).

  11. Use absolute links in the footer and the avatar menu of the OSIsoft Learning website

    The links for Guide, Basic, and FAQ in the footer and for FAQ and Sign Out in the avatar menu of the OSIsoft Learning website are currently relative. This decision assumes that the footer and the avatar menu will only ever appear in the domain learning.osisoft.com, which is unfortunately not true. If you log in, click on your picture in the top right corner to bring up the avatar menu, and click on My Profile, you will be brought to the domain accounts.skilljar.com, which still has the footer and the avatar menu, and all of the links that I mentioned…

    We are in the process of updating our courses to align styles more closely. Part of this update will include listing study hours for all courses, thank you for the feedback!

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. Use unambiguous currencies in the prices of courses (e.g. USD instead of $)

    OSIsoft has customers around the world. When a price is listed in an ambiguous currency, such as $, a customer might mistakenly assume that the currency is that of their country, especially if they are logged in when viewing the price. For example, a Canadian might assume that $ = CAD, when OSIsoft might intend $ = USD. There's a big difference.

    To avoid confusion, please use unambiguous currencies throughout OSIsoft Learning.

  16. 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…

  17. Label anything deprecated as such in the "Video Links for Blocked/Offline YouTube Access" and state the successor

    This should help reinforce to users that while OSIsoft still provides support for these products, features, and courses, they are not recommended.

    The deprecated products, features, and courses in the "Video Links for Blocked/Offline YouTube Access" are:
    • PI Performance Equations (PE)
    • PI ProcessBook
    • PI ACE
    • PI WebParts
    • Programming in PI Web API
    • Configuring a Simple PI System (only the English version is deprecated, at least for now)
    • Visualizing PI System Data with PI Vision (only the English version is deprecated, at least for now)

    Link to the "Video Links for Blocked/Offline YouTube Access": …

  18. 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…

  20. Increase the HSTS max-age to at least 2 years

    Currently, the max-age is just 60 seconds. The best practice is for the max-age to be at least 2 years. Please increase the max-age to at least 2 years.
