Once you’ve set up your BrainCert LMS, there are many ways you can customize it to enhance its online appeal and provide for a more satisfying visitor experience. “Account & settings” menu item links are available only to “Super Admins” and also to people with custom roles assigned.
BrainCert allows you to use your own logo, and SEO specific settings such as the title, and description. To start with, click on “Basic Settings” menu item.
‘Extensions’ provide support for 3rd party apps and integrations. We constantly keep adding new integrations.
Some of the popular integrations include:
BrainCert allows you to customize the look & feel of your LMS theme for branding purposes. Branding is the process of applying a product or company brand to the User Interface. BrainCert provides an intuitive color picker tool to change the User Interface easily with a click of a button.
BrainCert allows you to manage multiple languages within your LMS. This intuitive and powerful feature allows you set languages based User Groups. For example, you can set ‘French’ as the interface language for your French speaking users, and ‘English’ for all LMS administrators.
This is a very powerful feature that controls user registrations with a number of options.
Self-registration means that new users can register themselves at logon. In the logon screen, users can choose to register themselves by filling out a form. After registration they are registered users and can access all content that is assigned to the default user group.
Customize the look and feel of your landing page with default text, logo background color, and branding image.
Catalog settings: Enable this option to show/hide your courses and tests menu in the logon/landing page. This is a useful feature for SEO purposes to list all your courses and tests in the public catalog. Guests can view, but won’t be able to access the content without a valid user account.
NOTE: When you create a course or test, “List in course/test catalog” option will be presented.
You can change your BrainCert sub-domain anytime by using this option.
BrainCert allows you to white-label your LMS using external domain mapping feature. Simply type your external URL and click on “Change External Domain Name” button to finish the domain mapping process at our end. See KB note.
However, to finish the domain mapping process, you would need to create a CNAME entry in your DNS server. CNAME stands for 'canonical name' and is a redirection to the zone file of the entered target domain.
Log in to your domain registrar's site and locate the Zone File Settings, DNS Manager, or similar area of your control panel. Here you will create a CNAME record that points your BrainCert sub-domain.
Due to the limitations of CNAME domain mapping, external URLs can only be accessed using HTTP protocol.
BrainCert integrates seamlessly with PayPal and Stripe to sell your courses, tests, and live classes for faster revenue. There is no need to experience the complicated merchant account setup process. With BrainCert, you can simply enter your verified PayPal Premier or Business email or start accepting credit card payments instantly with Stripe.
With BrainCert, now you have the ability to choose from multiple currencies. BrainCert's multi-currency enabled payment gateway allows anyone to easily sell their e-learning content with confidence.
When creating your tests, courses, and live classes, you will be presented with the currency option to setup the e-commerce bridge. It is only possible for your customers to checkout in one currency for each item sold.
When you create a flexible shopping cart using BrainCert's pricing scheme option, you will be presented with the currency you have set.
BrainCert uses a powerful user management engine for managing users. The user management dashboard clearly shows the following parameters:
Create New User: Click on ‘Create New User’ button to create a new user manually. Fill out the form below with required fields and click ‘save’ to create a new user.
With its role-based content, BrainCert enables users - from employees and customers to partners and suppliers - to focus exclusively on data relevant to them.
You can also create and customize new roles with specific permissions and then assign it to 'Groups'. LMS roles define how content is grouped together and how it is displayed in the Portal. By assigning a group to a role, you restrict all users part of that group from doing certain activity. For example, you can create a role that allows a group to only create and manage courses, but not tests.
You can also design a new dashboard (welcome) page based on the group the user belong to. See this KB note.
Add Role: BrainCert provides role-based access to the LMS portal. Click on the ‘Add Role’ button to start creating a new role. Start with typing a ‘Name’ and ‘Description’ and proceed with the customization. Roles allow you to set granular level permissions to menu items.
The following permission levels are supported for menu item objects:
List Roles: Roles dashboard provides options to edit, assign groups, and delete a role.
Click on the Group icon to assign role to user groups. When the user logs on, the system displays the LMS menu items and pages defined in the roles assigned to the user.
Plan details page displays the pricing and plan related information. You can easily upgrade, and downgrade your plans.
