Avendoo® online documentation

Learning place

After successful Self-registration or Authentification as user by Open ID Connect you get to the Learning place.

All mandatory, optional and finished learning units and also the learning units you’ve liked (bookmarks) and your content are shown on five tabs at your learning place. You get the preview image displayed, which the author has uploaded in the Course activation wizard under Options -> Preview. Under My event dates you see, which event dates are next. Here you see the title of the event or the course, the date, the time and the time zone of the event location. The event dates are listed one below the other.

If team leaders or authors have assigned learning units already to you, these units are shown in the overview. Via click on the title you start the appropriate learning unit. You also find your added learning units on one of these tabs (Mandatory learning units, optional learning units and completed learning units). You add new learning units via the catalog or the search. Furthermore you can fold and expand the filter results at “My learning place” plus you can cancel the registration of the appropriate registered learning unit.


If you deregister from a course activation with already processed event dates via the Learning Place, there is the message, that currently it is impossible to deregister from the learning content, because there aren’t yet all event dates closed, to which you are registered.

Since version 16.4 users can show the classification and the classification values of the course activations via CSS on the Start page and at the learning place. Therefore the author has added the variables “CourseClassificationAndValues” and/or “CourseClassificationValues” on the appropriate course page. Further information about variables you find under courses.

What are learning units?

Learning units in Avendoo® stand for tools of knowledge transfer. You can differ four learning formats in Avendoo®, which are explained below.

Training plans

A training plan shows you a path for different courses, that means a certain number of defined courses should be processed in order and should be completed. But you can choose between multiple paths in a training plan and thus you can complete the whole training plan in several ways.


Events are for example face-to-face sessions, which are planned via Avendoo®. They are characterized by interaction between people. They can represent a meeting on location for example, also a conference call or an internet conference. Under Event details you find information about date, location, address, description, room, event speaker, free slots, price, group, business e-mail address and business phone number.


Note that the processing time of an event on My Learning place can differ from the time of the event date.


Learning units of the type e-learning contain only objects, which you can process directly in the system.

Blended learning

Learning units of the type blended learning are a combination of e-learnings and events.

My content

– You have the user right Create an activated event for user content. Further information you find here.
– The author has selected all templates for activated event dates on tab Options in the Client wizard.

    The dialog window Create content opens (first screenshot).
  2. You get the appropriate entry mask, depending which event date template the author has selected on the tab Options in the Client wizard.
    If the event date type is defined in the event date template, you can only select, if the author has not selected the standard. Futhermore the author has defined in the event date template, which coordinator and speaker and which currency is entered. Also in this template is defined, which picture appears on the tile.
  3. Enter the required data in the mandatory fields title, teaser, provider, event dates, location and room details. Tagging, tagging 2, event date costs (check mark No cost is set by default), costs of overnight stay (check mark No cost is set by default), documents and media (for uploading you need the user right Create media for user content; see second screenshot (Select media)) and the room are optional.
    The first event date is suggested, but you can adjust it. The next day with the same time as starting time and end time an hour later is entered by default. You can add as many event dates you want.
  4. Note

    Check your event dates thoroughly, because after clicking the button Submit you cannot delete or add event dates.

  5. Click on the button Submit.
    Your entered event dates are saved as event date group with follow-up event dates under My content (see third screenshot) and under Required at the learning place. This event date group with follow-up event dates is saved in the author backend under Activated event dates. Each author with the appropriate right can edit the activated event date, as lons as the first event date hasn’t started yet.

As a new own content is generated, the event date group with follow-up event dates is shown also as tile on the tab Start in the stream New releases. As the first event date is completed, the follow-up event dates are still shown on Start and Learning place as My event dates. You can only deregister from these event dates via My event dates, if the first event hasn’t started yet.

Your own content does not appear any longer in the list My event dates, if an author (with the appropriate right) has changed the event date.
