Improvements to Quick Base University

Quick Base University is rolling out a new interface that makes it easier for application builders to access and consume the training they need to build successful applications.  

The improvements are a direct result of feedback from our customers.  We regularly speak with customers about their training experience and review the survey results submitted with each course. Additionally, a recent job task analysis helped us understand what features and functions of Quick Base were most important to app builders. 

What will I see upon logging in?  The changes look similar to the current visual layout. New branded graphics were added and the courses will be organized to reflect our revised curriculum.

Who will benefit from this update?  Anyone that accesses and consumes training on Quick Base University will benefit from these updates.  

What will happen to my training records?  Training records have not changed.  All of your training records remain within your user profile page. Click the link in the top right corner of the University home page to view your profile. 

Can I still access all Quick Base University training?  Yes, your Quick Base subscription includes access to all eLearning and live online training! Any courses you’ve enrolled in will be available from the catalog or from your profile page. If we archive a course due to the release of a more current version, the archived course you enrolled in is accessible from your profile page.

Will the Certification change?  Access to all certification exams will remain the same.  If you’ve passed an exam you can access your certificate and the link to post the certification to LinkedIn from your profile page.  

How has the curriculum change? Based on feedback from a job task analysis, we made slight changes to the organization of courses.  Some series in the catalog were renamed, we’ve added new series, and we combined the current Fundamental and Intermediate series.



    


The series and the distribution of content is now based on the results of a job task analysis.  Content is now organized by responsibility vs by Quick Base functionality.

One of my favorite things about Quick Base as a software vendor is that they undertake tasks like this of their own volition, because they seem to understand that resources invested to better serve their user base are costs that will be recouped over time, even if the projects that serve the purpose are deployed invisibly to the users themselves. Simply understanding that 'a more user-friendly QBU UX' is a worthy goal in and of itself. Thanks, Quick Base.
