Employees and supervisors have access to new and improved learning and development resources following the launch of a learning module in MyTrack.
The Office of Human Resources expanded the MyTrack system, also used for recruitment and onboarding, to include a learning module focused on employee professional development. The expanded features of MyTrack let employees and supervisors collaborate by creating customized development plans. They can search and register for learning activities and track progress towards development goals.
“We are excited to upgrade learning and development at the university with the MyTrack learning module,” said Kaia Rogers, director of HR programs and services. “MyTrack retains important features offered in our previous course listing and registration system while also providing enhancements with a personalized feel.”
Employees navigate MyTrack through a dashboard in their individual account. This approach makes employees and their individual learning and development activities and goals the primary focus, Rogers said.
MyTrack includes a learning library with more than 130 courses currently offered across campus. Employees can search the learning activities in the “My Community” section and register by booking the activity.
Registered or booked activities appear on the employee’s development plan. Each employee has an individualized “My Development Plan” that shows upcoming and completed activities, which can be found in the “About Me” section.
Employees access MyTrack through the HR website. MyTrack access requires authentication, which means employees must enter their Duck ID and password to log into the system
Human resources is offering MyTrack user training webinars for those looking for assistance and support navigating the new system. Training opportunities are listed on the MyTrack webpage within the HR website.
Making Tracks, the previous course listing and registration system, has been discontinued. According to HR, the transition from Making Tracks to MyTrack included the transfer of registration and course completion data. This means employees remain registered in any learning activity scheduled in Making Tracks prior to MyTrack going live.
The transfer of historical course records from Making Tracks to MyTrack is currently underway. However, some records may not transfer. Employees are encouraged to get their user registration report for a record of courses completed in the past. Registration reports from Making Tracks will be available through the end of January 2018.
