  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.

  5. SQC Alarms and Charts in PI AF and PI VISION

    Understanding that PI VISION is not going to provide a 1-to-1 solution to that of PI Processbook's SQC Symbol in the near future (see below referenced link) I believe it would help many people if a course will be created @ OSISoft learning website which will explain in details how to cover the SQC topic using PI data archive SQC points ("RTSQC"), PI AF (Attributes and Analysis) & PI VISION.

    Generating SQC alarms is possible using the PI SQC Alarms mechanism (config. wizard via PI SMT) which helps to build the critical PI Points (LCL,UCL, CL, etc) needed for SQC.…

    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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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:

  10. 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.

  11. 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.).

  12. 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", and "Event Frames and Notifications", 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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".

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. Propagate the renaming of courses

    Recently, the names of the last 3 courses of the User learning path were simplified to be more consistent with the names of the other courses in this learning path. The renames are:

    Creating Basic Reports with PI DataLink → PI DataLink: Basics
    PI DataLink with Excel’s Advanced Features → PI DataLink: Beyond the Basics
    Building Displays with PI ProcessBook → PI ProcessBook: Basics

    If OSIsoft is happy with these new names, I feel that these new names should be propagated to wherever the old names were used. This includes but is not limited to:
    • Course URLs
    • Titles…

  18. Replace "Aula" with "Lição" in the Course Overview of "O Básico do PI System"

    All of the other Portuguese courses use "Lição", and this course even uses "Lição" once, so please replace "Aula" with "Lição" in the Course Overview of "O Básico do PI System".

    Note: I do not know Portuguese. Maybe "Aula" is more appropriate than "Lição". Use whichever one is more appropriate and be consistent.

  19. Incorrect playlist link for all self-paced 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 so that the playlist matches the course.
