Vector Solutions LMS & Training Management (Vector) is an online service from Vector Solutions that offers a variety of compliance and work-related training for students, faculty, and staff. Vector Solutions originally came to campus as EverFi, providing substance abuse training known as “Alcohol.Edu”, and has been adopted widely across campus as the source of compliance training for a wide-range of Ohio University needs.

    • Allow users to self-enroll in available training

    • Allow offices to track offline learning

    • Host custom training material

    • Provide robust reporting for compliance and tracking course completion

Vector Use Case

Vector is best suited for providing large groups with mandated and required training. Vector is not suited as an alternative to OHIO's LMS (Blackboard, Canvas, etc.) or for academic class content.

Vector Content Customization:

Vector allows customization of pre-built trainings and provides fully custom trainings. As a University-wide platform, customizations will be managed and approved centrally to ensure needs are met across the University. One of the benefits of the Vector platform is that Vector maintains the training content. However, any customizations made will need to be regularly reviewed to ensure the customized content is up to date.

  • For ALL Training, Vector Allows Customized:

    • Training Description (on landing page)

    • Training Resources (on landing page)

    • Training Introduction (in course)

    • Training Conclusion (in course)

    • Training Coordinator (a single point of contact for any questions related to that training)

  • For SOME Training, Vector Allows Customization Inside the Training:

    • Inside a limited number of pre-defined trainings, some additional pages can be added to provide additional information specific to the University.

    • Mainly policy-driven courses to allow references to local policies and additional resources

  • Custom Trainings Allow Administrators to:

    • Wrap an existing Vector course with additional materials.

    • Create content using traditional web-based tools and a generic course template.

    • Upload Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) packages to be hosted on the Vector site.

    • Create “offline” courses to track training offered outside of the Vector system.

Note: As course customizations are applied there is an expectation of regular review to ensure content is up to date and links work as expected.
