bksb and Onefile
bksb and Onefile’s Nomad ePortfolio are now compatible, meaning tutors, managers, and students can access all relevant information in one place. The integration enables joint customers to display the results of the bksb Initial Assessment, Diagnostic Assessment and Skill Checks directly onto a learner’s ePortfolio, making the results easier to understand.
The Nomad system brings all the information together allowing tutors to easily gather information, add tasks, plan assessments, record feedback, and schedule reviews on a learner’s progress – helping tutors and managers to make decisions using the all the relevant information in on place. This allows learner management decisions to be made quickly, such as calculating a learner’s progress and ensuring they are taking the correct course.
What is Nomad?
Nomad has been developed by Onefile and provides one central access point for all learner data. It is the leading assessment ePortfolio for apprenticeships, QCF, NVQ, BTEC, and all criteria-based qualifications. The system allows tutors and managers to complete all necessary administration providing evidence for a learner’s portfolio, plan future assessments, and generate detailed reports – all whilst recording the data via the platform itself.
Using the information taken from bksb’s assessments and skill checks, tutors are able to track learners’ status, comment on progress, and highlight any errors. Learners are also able to upload work to the ePortfolio, providing evidence to tutors of work completed. The online nature of Nomad means it is ideal for use with bksb, pulling all up-to-date information together in one simple to understand place.
The process of integrating the two is simple:
- Enable the bksb integration
Enable the Integration on Nomad.
- Connect to the bksb Databridge
Enter the server details and access credentials to the database linked with the bksb Databridge.
- Match Learners
Customers then have two options – to automatically match learners or to manually match learners. Auto-matching will provide a list of learners where the first and last names of a learner on bksb exactly match the first and last names on Nomad, whereas the manual match will allow the user to look at each bksb learner and search for the learner on Nomad.
- View the results
Once the learners have been matched, any results already in the Databridge will automatically be displayed on the learner’s portfolio. Any new assessments will be pulled from the Databridge during an overnight sync, however tutors and managers have the ability to run the sync at any point.
*bksb customers must be using the bksb Databridge.
