The HUMMINGBIRD, RT 3.5 release introduces the new RT Form Enrollment method, enhancements to the re-certification/certificate expiry feature as well as improvements to the display options for Iconic Categories.


New features and enhancements:

 Development of the RT Form Enrollment method. The new RT Form Enrollment method will replace the existing Webinars feature allowing for the creation of custom registration forms with options for learners to select a specific group/event date at the time of registration, incorporate password options for new and existing accounts, control the maximum number of registrations/enrollments for a given event along with ability to set the enrollment duration and expiry, plus access to create and send custom email reminders to participants.

• Enhancements to the re-certification and certificate expiry feature allowing learners to access expired certificates, view certificate issue and expiry dates as distinct columns in the "My Certificates" report, and receive separate email reminders prior to and after their certificate expiry date.  Learners can also be flagged if attempting to re-take a course before it has expired to ensure their grades are reset for re-certification.
