  1. 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:

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Provide hackathon style datasets for online course 'Building Asset Hierarchies with PI AF'

    Need more rigorous testing mechanism if possible. Rather than using our own dataset which can be challenging at times with IT and security policies, hackathon style datasets and something useful out of it within 3 weeks could be a fantastic way to apply skills learned from the course!

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

  7. Programming in PI Web API Online Course: Too much materials for a three week period

  9. 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.

  11. Show how to set up and use analysis templates in Enabling CBM online course

    The final project includes setting up/using several analysis template types. How to accomplish this is not addressed in the video links provided in the course content. They are easy to locate but including them in the list of videos along with the other content would provide a student with a better sense of the amount of video content that was necessary to review to complete the course.
