Adjusting Content on the Dashboard (00:20)
The dashboard is your main hub for learning with Kubicle. If you are using Kubicle as an independent learner, it will show your selected content, but you can add content by selecting Configure Program. This brings you to the course and version selection screen, where you can select what subjects should appear on your dashboard, and what software version you use for software-based subjects.
If you want to check if a course is for you, you can select the skill check icon, which will ask a series of yes/no questions that determine whether you understand the material in the course or not.
If you are using Kubicle through your organisation, by default, it will include the courses selected for your organization for the current semester, but you can browse additional courses in the library if you want.
If your organization has an initial skill check, this will be reflected in the dashboard. Each course will be marked as mandatory or optional, and will include a skill level of weak, needs improvement, or strong. Don’t worry about a weak or needs improvement score, as that’s normal, and you’ll have a strong rating when you complete the course.

You now understand why we do what we do at Kubicle. So what's next? In the next few lessons, we'll show you how to make the most of your time with Kubicle.
Our goal in this lesson is to learn how to get started with Kubicle. We'll start here on the dashboard, which is your main hub for learning with Kubicle.
As a learner, you may be using Kubicle as a self directed, independent learning experience. Alternatively, if your company is administering Kubicle, you may be part of a mandated semester. A semester is a structured learning experience that you should aim to complete within a defined period of time. In many cases, your organization will specify an end date that you'll be able to see on your dashboard. By default, the dashboard shows all of your selected content. If you're an independent learner, you can customize this view at any time by selecting the configure program option on the right of your screen.
Your dashboard shows all the courses selected for focus by you or your organization, but you can also browse other courses from the full library if you want, just don't let that interfere with your core learning objectives.
In order to determine your current skill level for any course, you can take skill checks to establish your current competency. If you are a directed learner who has been assigned a skill check during onboarding, you'll see the outcome reflected on your dashboard. Alternatively, if you're an independent learner, you'll be able to take skill checks for each course as required.
Once the skill check has been completed, courses will be labeled with a corresponding skill level based on your answers. In a directed semester, this can also determine whether a course is mandatory or optional.
Courses will be marked either weak, needs improvement or strong. Don't worry if you have a weak or needs improvement score, that's normal. Completing the course will take you right up to a strong rating.
In our next lesson, we'll take you through the structure of a typical Kubicle course, but before we do, let's take a quick look at your Kubicle account details. You can access your account by clicking the avatar in the top right corner and selecting settings. Here you can view and adjust your personal information and email settings, or make other changes to your account.
This option will not be available to you if you log into Kubicle using single sign on, which means signing in without a password.
