Enable Personalized Recommendations to allow users, administrators, and the Learning Management System (LMS) to make learning recommendations to learners based on their topics of interest.


Starting in release 1808, LMS Admins can enable Personalized Learning Recommendations in LMS


Personalized Recommendations is a new feature in b1808 release that can be turned by going to:

  • System Admin > Configuration > System Configuration > PERSONALIZED RECOMMENDATIONS then set recommendationsEngineEnabled to true
  1. Logon as Learning Administrator
  2. Go to System Admin
  3. Configurations
  4. System Configurations

Learners will now be able to view Personalized Recommendations on the Catalog Browse page and on the Recommendations tile.

Additional Details:
