Learner Disclaimer

Hello All,

Has anyone got a good disclaimer that learners have to accept before starting their training?

Something along the lines of "yes, the person completing this course is the same as the one the course was assigned to"?

I just want something that deters users from getting someone else to complete their own online training.

Hi Claire - I don't know that putting a disclaimer or survey in the course really will keep this from happening. And even if the box is checked, it doesn't guarantee that it was that person. I think something like this is more of a systemic issue than a training issue.

I've taken the approach that the deficiency in training will show in that person's work, and then it becomes a supervisor issue.

But seriously, Joe's suggestion is best. The measure of success isn't the completion of the course. It's the thing we want them to do after... If they fail (whether or not they completed the training), the course is evidence that the organization provided a resource.

Great idea Wendy.

Creating in a quiz format means we can capture the response In the LMS.

I have done similar before but it was at the end of the learning before the user was granted a production login.

The "module" was essentially one page with a yes / no box at the end.  This meant I could lock this module down with prerequisites in the LMS so they could still do all the other modules in any order they chose but had to do this one last. Also the LMS recorded pass/fail (yes/no) so we had a record for reporting purposes.

I would however think about why you feel you need it first. I would think you shouldn't have to explain to someone that they shouldn't get someone else to do their training. Although from working with franchise business owners I do realise in the real world this might not be the case as the outcome (getting the production login) was more important to them than the training.
