Welcome to our next release! We're combining our 1.0.0 and 1.1.0 release into one set of notes. Check out the details below to see what's new.
Custom content is finally here! Our most requested feature to date brings the power of Haekka to any training imaginable. With custom content, admins can edit existing training, create new training from our template library, or write their own training from scratch. Note: Custom content is not turned on by default. If you would like Haekka to enable custom content access on your account, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So how does it work? The first step is to create a new training and select the option to make the training custom:
Once you've done that, fill out the details:
From here, you can find the new training in your list of training. Select "Manage" to edit the content and assign users. In this view you should see all of the lessons for that training. If you hover over a lesson, you'll have the option to edit or delete the lesson.
Once you've made all of your changes, hit save and you're good to go!
So let's say you've written your content and you're ready for employees to have the training assigned. Here's how to do that:
What else is available via custom content?
With the addition of Custom Content, we now support two types of Lessons, Simple and Advanced. Here's how they differ:
Advanced Lessons have the following fields:
Simple Lessons have the following fields:
You'll notice that Simple Lessons not only have fewer fields, they only have 2 required fields, a title and content. This is a great option if you just have some content that you want to assign and track, but don't want to create a fully fleshed out course. It lowers the barrier to creating content, but still has the option of a scenario/question should you want one.
A big part of staying secure as a business is ensuring your employees are aware of security threats. The number one method of achieving this is through education. That education can fall flat if your employees aren't engaged with the content. To help keep employees interested and engaged with Haekka, we're introducing levels. To start, levels will be simple. As users interact with content, they'll receive points. Those points add up to levels. Employees earn badges for their levels, which are viewable in Slack.
We'll be building on top of levels throughout the rest of the year! Here's what it looks like right now:
We're continuing to add new courses and content. So far this summer we've added:
If you have any suggestions for new courses in the future, we'd love to hear from you! Send us a note here.
That's it for now. If you have any questions, issues or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
