The ability to preview a functional version of a course in the admin experience would reduce the overhead involved with enrolling into it, launching it in the Learner Experience, and validating the state
I disagree that this is "Currently Available." This is available for some types of content, but not all. For example, I can preview a content package, but not a video. Additionally, I'm not previewing the course from the learner's perspective. I cannot replicate their experience without enrolling a user.
We need preview functionality outside of create in the LMS, to view the course and its learning objects without having to enroll as a learner in the course
Will this be available in non-SCORM online content?
Hi there I am not able to find this either. Where is it?
Also having issues seeing this option in admin. Please advise on how to view this options. Thank you
Can we see a screenshot of what it looks like? I'm not able to locate it either. Thanks!
Nevermind the comment, as I was able to find and verify the preview icon update in our portal.
Hi Just wondering if Absorb will be staggering deployment of the new June release (preview a course in the AE) for users? I've checked our portal instance this morning and don't seem to see the preview a course icon yet. The I noticed that our portal shows that our Absorb version says that it was last updated on June 1, 2022.
Thanks for explaining. Can't wait until Monday. This will be excellent.
June release is scheduled for Sunday June 5, so you will see it there on Monday :)
Super excited about this new future! Unfortunately I can not find it on mine. Has it already been launched to everyone or is the release later this month?
I agree with Deana. This should be available for all documents and multimedia content.
Will this only be for Scorm, AICC, Tin Can and Absorb Create and not all learning objects?? I really need this for objects so I can verify the correct version of the document has been attached. It would also be helpful for videos to ensure they are running as expected. I am really hoping this feature will allow you to preview any learning objects! It is really time consuming to constantly have to enroll a test user and log in as them to verify all content.
THIS IS WONDERFUL. Thank you Absorb team and all who worked on this!!!!
Hello Absorb LMS Admins,
I am pleased to announce that we've included this feature in the June release of Absorb LMS!
You will find a new 'preview' icon right in the course syllabus next to Scorm, AICC, Tin Can, and of course Absorb Create lesson objects that allows an Admin with the Files permission to see the lesson just as a learner would!
Gone are the days of having to launch the learner application to validate lesson content. Preview uses the same player that the learner side does so you can be confident in the results of the preview function.
We are excited to get your feedback on this, so please update here or discuss with your Absorb contact, and we'll continue to improve the Admin Experience for everyone.
Thank you all for identifying this need, and I definitely look forward to implementing more of your great ideas!
This feature is badly needed - any update on this on where it is on the roadmap would be super helpful - and this is coming from someone who has the Absorb Create add-on, but does not always want to create course content in that.
I really hope this feature is added soon! I am coming from another LMS with the ability to preview a course, and not having it has definitely added additional work to ensuring courses are accurate before assigning.
This is awesome that the preview course feature is on roadmap. What is the timeline for implementation?
A preview button would allow admins to know which version and saved copy is effective. There was also a folder of previous uploads, and it would be nice to sort and view that folder.
