Instructor Dashboard

Skillable is committed to innovation at all levels and the July 25, 2022, Skillable TMS release features an all-new Instructor Dashboard, free of charge and available now in the TMS with the URL extension “/Instructor/Dashboard” (example: [your-root-TMS-url]/Instructor/Dashboard).

Based on feedback, usage and popularity, the Instructor Dashboard surfaces Instructor’s activities into a single view, providing easy access to everything they need for their classes and enabling them to focus on their learners rather than logistics.

On top of that, the dashboard auto-refreshes each hour, updating class assignments, learner enrollments and lab completion metrics without the Instructor having to refresh the browser.

We invite you to take a tour of the functionality and then try it on your own!

Quick Links

Based on usage and popularity, the Quick Links section offers quick navigation to the 11 most-popular pages in TMS for Instructors.

Loading in the same window, Instructors can quickly find what they need and navigate back to the dashboard when finished.

Month at a glance

Moving to the right, Instructors have a snapshot view of their commitments in the Month at a glance section.

Featuring the previous month and 12 months into the future, the green dots represent the day’s class commitments as well as an Instructor’s block out days in full shading.

When clicked, the specific day’s class name(s) is revealed, complete with a hyperlink enabling easy access to the information needed.

Instructors will also notice that this view shares the specific timeslot for the class, rather than the course duration, making it an easier way to view your commitments for the day.

week at a glance

The Week at a glance section displays commitments for the week in a snapshot view.

Each commitment is hyperlinked to the class details page or Instructor blockout time for review or editing, where applicable.

Today’s Sessions

The heart of the dashboard, this section provides Instructors everything they need for their class in one easy-to-navigate area.

The action buttons are tied to the session and when clicked, show information as a pop-up so Instructors don’t have to navigate away from the main dashboard.

When multiple classes are scheduled on a single day, each class will have its own tab and the action buttons will pull the appropriate data for the highlighted class.

Sure to be a favorite are the Class Training Key and Copy Class Link buttons, which give easy access to frequently requested details.

Explore the Dashboard

Those are the main highlights and we’re excited to share more in the months to come. Right now, the dashboard is only available by keying [your-root-TMS-url]/Instructor/Dashboard URL but will be available as a default view with the late August 2022 release.

We’d love to hear what you think of the dashboard and have a special offer, details available below!
