  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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)".

  4. 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).

  5. 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

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

    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!

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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:

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

    Update: Canadian dollars now appear as "CA$", but US dollars still appear as "$", which can still confuse a Canadian, especially for self-paced courses, whose prices never use…

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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":…

  17. 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.

  18. 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".

    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"

  20. 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.
