    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!

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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:

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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": …

  10. Fix the table of contents in the course workbook of "Visualizando Dados do PI System (Ferramentas Cliente)"

    https://osicdn.blob.core.windows.net/learningcontent/pdfs/VisualizingPISystemDataWorkbook_Portuguese.pdf

    The workbook is supposed to be in Portuguese, but the table of contents is in English. Also, the table of contents shows "Error! Bookmark not defined." and has strange numbering and indentation. Please fix the table of contents in this workbook.

  11. Remove the mention of PI ProcessBook in the "About this course" of "Visualisierung im PI System"

    https://learning.osisoft.com/visualisierung-im-pi-system

    In the "About this course" of "Visualisierung im PI System" (German version of "Visualizing PI System Data (Clients)"), it says that PI ProcessBook will be taught, but in the course workbook linked at the end of the page, PI ProcessBook is not covered. Please remove the mention of PI ProcessBook from the "About this course".

  12. Mistakes in & feedback for courses in the Project Manager learning path

    Getting started with OSIsoft and the PI System

    https://learning.osisoft.com/getting-started-with-osisoft-and-the-pi-system/504113
    "OSIsot" should be "OSIsoft"

    PI System - Initiation and Planning

    https://learning.osisoft.com/pi-system-initiation-and-planning/516676
    Reword this question: "Opponents include them in the process to address their concerns and transform into supporter" (True or False)

    Lesson 4 - PI System Architecture
    This section is very outdated. There are no mentions of PI AF SDK, PI Connectors, or PI Adapters. PI API for WIS is mentioned only in the text and not in the videos.

    PI System - Implementation and Adoption

    https://learning.osisoft.com/pi-system-installation-and-adoption/578572

  13. Suggestions for the text portion of "Configuring Analytics with PI AF"

    https://learning.osisoft.com/configuring-analytics-with-pi-af-2/496248
    Change "PI square" to "PI Square"

    https://learning.osisoft.com/configuring-analytics-with-pi-af-2/311870
    Eliminate "or PI ProcessBook". OSIsoft no longer sells PI ProcessBook and will be dropping support for it at the end of 2024. Eliminating mentions of PI ProcessBook should help to make it clearer that PI Vision should be used instead of PI ProcessBook.

  14. Make it optional to specify the email address of the instructor in the course evaluation

    The course evaluation requires you to enter the email address of the instructor, but online courses don't really have an instructor, so lots of students will either put in a dummy email address or just skip the evaluation. Please make it optional to specify the email address of the instructor so then students can easily proceed with the rest of the course evaluation.

  15. Better distinction of links in course text

    When a link appears in the text on a page within a course, it looks very similar to non-link text. Please make it more obvious which text contains links and which text does not.

  16. Empty grey bar when viewing a page in a course

    When you view a page in a course, the grey bar at the top of the page is empty. Outside of these pages, it contains a link to myOSIsoft and the selected language. Please either restore the functionality of the grey bar for course pages or eliminate the grey bar from course pages. Right now, it is the worst of both worlds: it takes up space but doesn't do anything.

  17. Mistakes in "Introduction to Developing with the PI System"

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/638555
    There is no course workbook. This page shouldn't exist unless there is one.

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/641759

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/638558
    The poll does not exist anymore. Polls are not supported on and were not migrated to the new PI Square. This course page should be deleted.

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/641788
    "OSIsoft Messaging Format" should be "OSIsoft Message Format" in the video and in the titles of the page and the video

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/641791
    "PI Datalink" should be "PI DataLink"

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/672351
    The "s" on "Batches" is missing bolding

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/642206
    "It's" should be "Its".

    "Advance" should be "Advanced"

    https://learning.osisoft.com/introduction-to-developing-with-the-pi-system/670500

  19. 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.

  20. Correct mistakes with the course "Visualisation des données système PI avec PI Vision"

    This course has 2 mistakes:
    • The title should be changed to "Visualisation des données du PI System avec PI Vision".
    • The course appears in the results when you filter for courses in Montréal, even though it is a self-paced course.

    Please fix both of these issues.
