NetExam will be updating the ILT class view of Learner Portal based on feedback we have received from our customers. In the new view, the venue map has been replaced by the class description making it easier for learners to see a description of the class. NetExam Administrators can control the content displayed there via the class description field in the class configuration view. The map can still be accessed via the new icon listed next to the venue address.  

 

NetExam will be introducing the concept of “class-pass” with this release. When a learner registers for an Instructor-Led-Class they will be emailed a "class pass" that contains a QR code unique to the learner and the class. The learner can then take this class pass to the class and let the Instructor scan it with the NetExam Instructor Mobile app which will then recognize the learner and give them attendance credit.
