Had to complete some required compliance training recently – three web-based training programs to be exact … or to be more exact, I had three WBTs inflicted upon me.
Wish #1: Please, please, please allow me to skip the first lesson that has to deal with “how to navigate this WBT.” I already know that there’s a next button; and I already know how to click it.
If you feel the need to create a lesson that walks through next, back, menu and exit buttons – which really shouldn’t be necessary in the first place – then please give me the option of skipping it.
Wish #2: Please do not congratulate me on completing a lesson that is so friggin’ stupid! I had to complete the how-to-click-the-next-button lesson … and the very last screen has CONGRATULATIONS! in big letters splashed across the screen. Ya know … you can congratulate me when there’s something I actually achieve. But completing this lesson is not an achievement – unless you count my not bludgeoning myself to death as I pound my head on the desk while taking this lesson.
Okay – I said it. Whew! Glad that’s off my chest.
