eWorks is pleased to announce the release of its new administrator services portalMy eWorks. This site provides TrainingVC administrators with a single point of access to eWorks’ sites and services. In time, the service will be rolled out to all of eWorks’ clients.

Features

The features of the portal include:

  • Direct access to your TrainingVC sites
  • Access to Google Analytics
  • Status overview (active users, data usage)
  • Direct access to the Zone and the support desk.

Additionaly, you will soon be able to access your LCMS dashboard from the portal. This feature is currently being developed and we will let you know as soon as it is released.

New support desk – Zendesk

As a result of feedback from our 2013 survey, eWorks has implemented a new support desk. Access via My eWorks will make it easier for our customers to log tickets and check the status of their previous tickets.

eWorks is confident that these changes will enhance your experience with TrainingVC, but we would love to hear your feedback. Contact us with any comments, queries and suggestions – or message us through the portal.

eWorks Website 2.0

We’re very excited to announce the release of our brand new website! We hope you like the new design, and appreciate the new content we’ve put in. A lot of changes are still coming, so stay tuned!

Our main priority when developing this new version was accessibility. Indeed, you are now looking at a website compliant with level AA of the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0). We, at eWorks, feel very strongly about accessibility and have been promoting it through the Australian e-learning technical standards that we manage on behalf of the National VET E-learning Strategy.

Our second priority was responsive design. In short, the website is built to adapt to any screen size it is viewed on. This means that you get an optimised user experience even when you visit the website from your smartphone or tablet. But don’t take our word for it, give it a try! If you don’t have access to a mobile device right now, just resize your browser window and prepare to be amazed!
