Banner Feature

EdApp's Banner feature will revolutionize how you engage with your learners. Here's how.

1. Admin LMS

Creating your Banner

Within the Admin LMS, a Banner can be easily created via the 'Engage' tab by simply clicking the '+Create a Banner' button. You can use our template here.

Configuring your Banner

Users will be directed to the Banner configuration page where title tags are added to each Banner, and a toggle enables the option to make the Banner visible or hidden to learners in real-time.

Next you can add the image or GIF to the banner!

You also have the option to add an Image URL that will act as a hyperlink for the learner to be directed to any external URL.

Assigning Banners to User Groups

Note: Assigning banners to specific user groups is only available on EdApp Pro plans.

Banners can be assigned to different User Groups via 'Access Rules'. This function enables you to target segmented users based on factors of choice, personalising each user’s learning experience.

The Banner can be made available to all users within your account by utilising the most functional and efficient solution, the 'Universal Access' button. All banners will be defaulted to universal access.

Managing Banners

All of your Banners will be listed on the main Banner page, enabling easy access and tracking of your creations. You also have the ability to drag and drop the Banners into the order you want them displayed in the Learners App.

You will be able to visually identify which of the Banners within your list are Hidden from your learners via a pill on the image.

2. Learners’ App

On the homepage of the learners’ app, amongst all courseware, you will find the Banner at the very top.

If more than one Banner exists, the learner can swipe through the different Banners. 

A visual indication will pop up on Banners if they are clickable. This means that a user can click on the Banner to be directed to a URL outside EdApp.

*Useful to note - Learners can also see up to 10 banners at a time.

And that’s it! We hope you enjoy Banners and that it further enhances your L&D strategy, enabling better learning experiences and outcomes alike.
