Help for Learning Management Queries

Overview. Learning Management data is complex. A listserv and user group meetings are available to help you query the Warehouse and retrieve Learning Management data efficiently and effectively.

Some canned queries and reports have been created as Business Objects Corporate Documents, to give you standardized perspectives on Warehouse data. Before creating your own Business Objects query to retrieve data from the Learning Management data collection, look under Public Folders / Learning Management to see if a Corporate Document already exists for the information you want.

Note: the Learning Management collection is not available for querying while the data is being refreshed. Information on the schedule for refreshing the data is available here. To see whether the job that refreshes the Learning Management System (LMS) data in the Warehouse is in progress, check the Data Warehouse Update/Load Status.

Subscription to the listserv. When you are granted access to the Learning Management data in the Warehouse, a subscription is automatically set up for you to participate in an E-mail listserv called LEARNINGMGT-WH@LISTS.UPENN.EDU. (Those with subscriptions to the listserv are called list members. If any list member sends an E-mail note to the listserv, every list member receives a copy.)

When you have a question. If you have a question about the Learning Management data, please send E-mail to the listserv -- and if you have the answer to a list member's question, please E-mail your reply to the listserv so all the list members can benefit from the discussion.

The listserv is also the place to send E-mail if you notice that some documentation needs updating. For documentation published on the Web, please specify the URL for the documentation that needs to be updated. For Business Objects documentation (help for Objects), please specify the Universe, Class, and Object.

Notification about general and special meetings. From time to time, notes are sent to the listserv to invite list members to general meetings to discuss the Learning Management data in the Warehouse, or to special interest group meetings to discuss specific issues.
