Avendoo® online documentation

My learning place

All mandatory, optional and completed learning units are shown on three tabs at your learning place. The bracketed number shows you the number of learning units per category. You get the preview image displayed, which the author has uploaded in the Course activation wizard under Options -> Preview.

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.

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.
