A

Access Control List

Access control lists (ACLs) are used to control how students use the Web within a virtual machine.

Access Control Policy
An Access Control Policy is used by a cloud provider to limit the resources that can be provisioned within the cloud environment. This prevents additional cloud costs by preventing users from creating resources that are not relevant to the content and/or outside the scope of the lab.
Achievements
Achievements are a feature to recognize an accomplishment with the TMS. An achievement is automatically triggered by an action being completed in the platform, such as, a user launched a lab, completed a lab, completed a course or a set of courses. An achievement can be associated with a badge so that the badge is automatically assigned when the task is completed.
Activities

Activities are configured in the instructions editor and represented in the lab instructions by a replacement token. Activities fall into two broad categories: Questions and Automated. 

  • Questions are multiple choice or short answer questions.
  • Automated Activities interact with the lab environment (Virtual Machine/Container/Cloud Platform).
Activity-based Assessment (ABA)

Activity-based Assessments are labs that contain activities that validate a if a given task was completed succesfully or not and provide real-time feedback directly to the learner as they are progressing through the lab.

Administrative roles
Administrative roles have permissions to view items within the organizations they manage, and so must be given organization management for those permissions to function. An administrator has a role that allows them to view any of the following, user accounts, classes, course assignments, enrollments, or subscriptions.
Advertising Campaign
Advertising campaigns are used to present a website to a lab user while the lab is launching.
ALH
An Authorized Lab Host (ALH) is a Microsoft-authorized organization that offers cloud-based non-production enviroments for hands-on labs. These environments allos learners to actively engage with technology, software, and tools. ALHs play a crucial role in training, certification, and skill development.

Configured for Labs by admins, they serve as the bridge between your applications and Skillable Labs to enable a wide array of data integration and automation possibilities.
Assessment Responses
Assessment responses are the answers given by a user to the multiple choice test they have taken.
Assessments
Assessments are used to determine the user's comprehension of materials. Assessments can be created in the TMS as a multiple choice test and then added to courses.
Attendance Chart
The attendance chart is used for a multi-day class to track each day the students have attended class.
Automated Activities

Activities are configured in the instructions editor and represented in the lab instructions by a replacement token. Activities fall into two broad categories: Questions and Automated. 

  • Questions are multiple choice or short answer questions.
  • Automated Activities interact with the lab environment (Virtual Machine/Container/Cloud Platform).

Cloud Slice

Cloud Slice is Skillable's proprietary technology that enables you to take a single cloud subscription and provide isolated access to a high volume of users at a single time.

Cloud Slice Resource Group

Microsoft Azure Cloud Slice Resource Group (CSR) labs restrict users to only creating and modifying Azure resources in the resource group(s) they are provided access to by the configuration in the lab profile. 

Cloud Slice Subscription

Microsoft Azure Cloud Slice Subscription (CSS) labs provide the lab user access at the subscription level to enable tasks such as configuring administrative settings or creating their own resource groups.

Cloud Subscription Pool
Cloud Subscription Pools are used by labs to provision Cloud Slices in a load balanced fashion. Even if you are only using one managed Cloud Subscription, you still must create a Cloud Subscription Pool. This setup allows you to add additional subscriptions to your subscription pool later, at which point you will gain the benefits of the load balancing support that the platform provides.
Code Labs
Code labs use a code editor also known as an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) user interface in the lab client to allow the delivery of Labs focused on programming objectives. Code labs utilize containers to provide support for a wide range of coding languages.

Custom registries can be created in Skillable Studio, that are linked to an external registry. This is useful to use containers that are maintained in your own external repository.
Container Volume

Container Volumes allow lab authors to load files into any container in the lab and share content between containers within a lab.

Containers
Skillable Studio supports containers via Docker. Containers are a lightweight option compared to full Virtual Machines. Container images use virtualization that focuses on a specific application or software, rather than a full operating system.
Content Providers
A content provider is an older way of managing content groupings which has nearly been replaced by publishing groups. While this is an obsolete field, it is still used by our billing department for some organizations and so is still required.
Course
Bundles together content to then be set up for training through classes, subscriptions, and course assignments. Courses can include labs, videos, SCORM, LTI, external links, assessments, and documents. Courses must be assigned to a Content Provider and a Publishing Group to be available to set up for training.
Course Assignment
A course assignment delivers self-paced access to a course. A course is assigned to a student giving immediate access to the student. It can be accessed at any time for the duration of the assignment. The assignment duration begins and is billed when it is created.
Course Catalog
A course catalog surfaces courses to allow viewing of available content.
Course Credit
On the user profile, course credit allows an administrator to add courses to a user which will then meet prerequisites requirements when they are set up on a course.

The Approved enrollment status can be used to designate that a student has met the requirements to attend class. This may be useful when multiple people in an organization are involved in the enrollment process.
Enrollment Status - Audit
The Audit enrollment status can be used to allow a person to sit in class for a short amount of time to see what the training is like. Generally, it is used by training company sales departments to let an undecided person decide if they will purchase training. There is no charge for an audit, but it is monitored and can be removed if abused.
Enrollment Status - Cancelled
The enrollment status of Cancelled is set when a student or an administrator has cancelled a student's enrollment into class.
Enrollment Status - Denied
The Denied enrollment status can be used to designate that a student does not meet the requirements to attend class and should not be enrolled. This may be useful when multiple people in an organization are involved in the enrollment process.
Enrollment Status - Enrolled
The enrollment status of Enrolled shows which students are attending class. Only enrolled students can participate in class; they are given access to class activities once the class date and start time is reached; because we use the Enrolled enrollment status for billing and they have access to use activities, once class has started a student marked Enrolled cannot have their enrollment status changed. Only enrolled students count against the Maximum Students in the class or the Classroom limit.
Enrollment Status - Requested
The enrollment status of Requested signals that someone would like to take the class allowing an administrator to decide if requirements have been met to enroll them into the class. It is always assigned if the enrollment is created from a user that does not manage the organization the class belongs to such as a student or an administrator from another organization that the class has been made available to and it is set as the default from some places where an enrollment is created.
Enrollment Status - Wait-listed
