The Virtual Coach in your platform is your proactive learning coach, who can guide and steer you continuously through your learning activities and your work within your learning platform. Learn more about all the features of the Virtual Coach.
This article will guide you to better ask the Virtual Coach how to retrieve for you relevant content on a given topic, so that you can efficiently obtain formal or informal learning content that may be of interest to you.
Asking about a given topic
If you’re interested in specific content that may be available to you in your platform, you can ask at any point to your Virtual Coach to find both informal (shared by yourself or your peers) and formal learning content (shared by your Administrator in courses and learning plans) on a given topic of interest.
How does it work? Simply ask your Virtual Coach to provide you content about that topic. The Virtual Coach is able to understand and isolate the topic from your sentence, and to look for for relevant content in the platform on that topic.
Try using these examples below, or some similar, to start this type of conversation:
- Find me something on project management.
- Do you have anything about viral marketing?
- Can you find me a course on safety and security please?
- Give me some content about the Docebo Learning Platform.
Upon asking, the Virtual Coach leverages your platform’s deep search to retrieve candidate content, and proposes the one that it seems the most appropriate given the stated topic, together with a direct link to it. You can confirm the Virtual Coach suggestion and go there, or you can ask for further content related to the same topic.
Note: to obtain satisfactory results, there must be some learning content in your platform that relates to the topic that you indicated to the Virtual Coach.
Keep in mind the use of terms
When asking for content about a given topic, it is preferable to avoid using certain verbiage. In particular, we advise to avoid words such as "recommend" or "suggest": they may confuse your Virtual Coach, since they are strongly semantically associated to another functionality, that is, the production of personalized content recommendations on demand.
