Documentation and Support

Welcome to the UC Learning Center documentation and support site. When you log in to the UC Learning Center you will see the Home page.

 

Pop-ups

If you have an active pop-up blocker, you should receive a message letting you know that "Pop-up blockers will affect the use of this site." The safest way to allow pop-ups from the UC Learning Center is to simply add uc.sumtotalsystems.com to the list of "allowed sites" in your pop-up blocker settings in Internet Explorer. In Safari, you must disable your pop-up blocker and then reenable it (the shortcut for this is Shift+CMD+K). See the following videos for more help.

 

 

 

Navigation

On the UC Learning Center Home Page, you will see the Quick Links. These are the pages you visit most often in the UC Learning Center.



You'll also see the Search box to search for training activities by keyword along with Messages where you will see any messages that have been sent to you recently and under Favorites, you will see any categories you have saved in the system for quick access.

Take note of the Location path. As you navigate anywhere within the system, it helps you orient yourself by displaying your location path at the top of the page. Your location path is a trail of links, consisting of your starting point – your Home page link – plus any other links you used to get to your present location in the interface. Each part of the location path is separated by the > symbol.

No matter where you are within the user interface, you can view your location path on the top left corner of the page, underneath the menu bar. You can click any of the links in the location path to access that page.

For example, if your location path shows Home > Learn - Training Schedule then you are on the Training Schedule page. You can click the Home link in the path to quickly navigate back to the Home page.
