  3. And now for something completely cosmetic: Pictures!

OK, so you want to “pretty up” VTA Learner, make it more “friendly”.  Well, here’s an idea: Add some pictures!.  Now in 7.2, many pages can display a rotating set of pictures, defined on a site-by-site basis.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so…

See the picture of people working?  Many Learner pages now have the ability to display a rotating set of pictures.  These pictures can be page-specific, or they can be common to the entire site, or they can span many sites.  The following Learner pages have this new ability:

  • Custodian
  • My Approvals
  • My Blog
  • My Community
  • My Competencies
  • My Delegates
  • My Development Plan
  • My Documents
  • My Mail
  • My Plan
  • My Programs
  • My Surveys
  • My Training
  • My Wishlist
  • Schedule
  • Search
  • Reports
  • View Lessons

There is also a “general” photo collection where you can put one or more photos.  If you don’t specify specific folders for a page, that page will display photos from the general collection.  If more than one photo exists in a page’s collection, Learner will randomly select a photo each time the page is displayed.

The only limitations on photos are:

  1. They cannot exceed 300 pixels in width, and
  2. They must be jpg, jpeg, png or gif format.
  3. This feature is not available in Internet Explorer version 8 or less.

We are building a tool for Backoffice that will allow each site to upload photos.  Stay tuned…
