  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. Replace & redirect http://cdn.osisoft.com with/to https://cdn.osisoft.com

    The domain cdn.osisoft.com is used to store some of the downloadable content for OSIsoft Learning, such as the workbooks of all instructor-led courses and the infographic linked below that is referenced from the OSIsoft Learning section of the feedback website.
    http://cdn.osisoft.com/osi/infographics/OSIsoft-learning-infographic.pdf?_ga=2.87749400.1055004684.1555988848-382715633.1548508508

    Whenever links from cdn.osisoft.com are used, they are the HTTP version, which wouldn't be so bad if cdn.osisoft.com redirected from HTTP to HTTPS.

    Please fix both issues. Replace the HTTP links with their HTTPS equivalent and redirect HTTP to HTTPS on cdn.osisoft.com

  5. What are the advantages of drawings to paint, print and color?

    When you include art activities in children, you are supporting the development of small and large muscles of the little ones, as well as their eye-hand coordination. In children's drawings, the use of colored pencils, markers, and brushes helps little ones practice fine motor control, which they will need for later writing.

    When children work together in the art area, they learn to share, interact with others, be responsible for cleanup, and put materials away. These are the positive and important changes for social learning and the advantages of the drawings to paint, coloring, and drawings to print on https://varityskuvat.com/

  6. How to download songs from SoundCloud official way

    Next, I will explain how you can download your music directly from the SoundCloud app, without the need for external programs.

    First of all, you must be properly registered on the platform, since SoundCloud is like a social network. If you are already registered, you will see that you can freely search for any type of music, in addition to interacting with users.

    The only official way to download SoundCloud from its website is by clicking on our favorite song. Then, you will see the audio player of the song on the screen. At the bottom of the player, you…

  7. Use MKV files instead of MP4 files for "Video Links for Blocked/Offline YouTube Access"

    Unlike MP4 files, MKV files can hold multiple audio tracks and multiple subtitle tracks. This would allow the versions of the videos in English that are simply dubbed and/or subbed in another language to finally be available for download without creating a new file for each language. The user can then select their preferred audio and subtitle tracks from within their video player.

  9. Set an example by using best practices in the Training Cloud Environments

    To help set a good example for customers, the Training Cloud Environments should follow best practices unless it would greatly inconvenience the user or unless it is up to the user to follow best practices as part of a learning exercise.

    Some changes to make to the Training Cloud Environments include:
    • Uninstall Internet Explorer and the PI Module Database Builder
    • Uninstall PI Web API from environments that do not use it. PI Vision 2020 and later don't need it.
    • Disable PI Trusts and max out the security slider in PI SMT
    • Disable PI Groups and PI…

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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:

    • The course calendar (https://learning.osisoft.com/calendar) already uses it

    • If all…

  17. 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)".

  18. 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).

  19. 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…
