SparkLearn® 3.10 Release Notes

June 2023



Learning Journeys allows Content Managers to direct users through structured content. You can combine multiple courses, articles, web links, etc., under a Journey to allow for more customization of content layout and ordering. Use journeys to build a curriculum or help guide learners through a topic via sequenced content.


Give your users a one-stop location for company terms, jargon, and acronyms. Glossary terms can be directly linked from articles so learners can easily find definitions as they need them. Learners can also pull up the Glossary from their dashboard or search for a term.

Evaluator Role

A new user role has been added that allows users to see analytics about content and users within SparkLearn without granting the ability to edit content and users. The Evaluator role has updated views and filtering options and is perfect for managers and leaders that want to view learner data. 

YouTube Clips

Use YouTube clips to focus your learners on the critical points of a video. You can grab a 60-second clip from any YouTube video and add it to your article.

Embeddable Content

Now you can embed external materials and content directly within SparkLearn. Use an <iframe> to add materials from these sites (with more to come).
