BuckeyeLearn Expands Training Opportunities, Extends to Wexner Medical Center

More than 15,000 users have accessed BuckeyeLearn, the university-wide online training tool, since its introduction in September 2015. BuckeyeLearn provides faculty and staff a new, easy-to-access way to initiate and engage in their own professional learning and development. It also offers managers and supervisors the opportunity to assign and track participation in training opportunities.

Throughout the past academic year, BuckeyeLearn has expanded its offerings to include more than 1,000 trainings from 25 different content providers, allowing users campus-wide to easily access a wide variety of learning and development opportunities.

In April 2016, BuckeyeLearn replaced NetLearning at the Wexner Medical Center. This extension of BuckeyeLearn establishes one online system for non-academic courses for the university and medical center communities at Ohio State.

“It’s exciting how many faculty and staff have accessed BuckeyeLearn to pursue professional development and complete applicable training,” Julie Wuebker, BuckeyeLearn Application and Operations Manager, said. “It is empowering to initiate and monitor your own career development. I encourage all faculty and staff to collaborate with their managers on training plans and explore the training in BuckeyeLearn to participate in learning opportunities at Ohio State.”

BuckeyeLearn offers access to online non-academic courses, registration for in-person trainings, a catalogue of opportunities offered by colleges or units, 24/7 access to select online training courses and a transcript feature to capture each individual’s completed trainings.

Starting this spring, ODEE will launch a new online platform, Carmen (Canvas) for academic learning. BuckeyeLearn and Carmen (Canvas) serve two distinct training purposes. Carmen (Canvas) houses academic courses and BuckeyeLearn is the faculty and staff source for professional development and compliance-oriented trainings. Non-academic training courses currently offered in Carmen (Canvas) may be moved to BuckeyeLearn as units update and convert content to the new online system.

Explore the training opportunities available at BuckeyeLearn.osu.edu. For questions about BuckeyeLearn, contact BuckeyeLearnsupport@osu.edu.
