Why CPN Clients Can be Excited About Your Upgrade

 

In this short video from our popular 2022 CPN Summit, Rob Buelow outlines the many reasons why CPN clients, who will be upgraded to our Vector LMS platform from Foundry this year, can be excited about their move!

Upgrade Overview

As we announced last August, EVERFI’s Higher Education business and the Campus Prevention Network joined the Vector Solutions family. We’re excited to share that EVERFI CPN Foundry customers will be upgraded to our award-winning Vector Learning Management System this year that’s used by millions of Higher Ed administrators and learners! We’ve developed this helpful online resource center so that customers can easily find information related to the planned upgrade in one convenient location. We'll also be sending regular emails about the upgrade process as well.

Frequently Asked Questions - Upgrade

Trust and transparency are the cornerstones of our work together with EVERFI CPN customers, and this is especially true for our upgrade process. Here are answers to important Upgrade, Product and General questions that we have received.

Foundry access for CPN customers will be discontinued on December 31, 2022. Your action is needed now to start your upgrade process to Vector LMS. Please contact your Customer Success Manager, danielle.hayek@vectorsolutions.com, or jason.thurman@vectorsolutions.com to get started.

For more details, click here to view the upgrade project plan.

New API specifications are available here. Your API-related needs will be considered when planning your upgrade timeline. Customers will need to rebuild their APIs before 12/31/22.

For customers who prefer not to use APIs, Vector Solutions also offers SFTP, which requires significantly fewer resources to configure a customer's user lists. Customers choosing the SFTP option will receive access details to a password-protected website, where they can then simply upload a .csv cohort file.

We’re building a state-of-the-art Vector LMS that you’ll be upgraded to this year that includes exciting new features you’ll have access to like elective learning, repeated training plans, administrative reports and more. Click here to see an overview of our system.

Yes, there will be new SCORM packages for CPN courses. We are currently working on the details of our upgrade timeline and will communicate with clients when the new SCORM packages will be available as soon as we have that information.

Thanks for your question. If each school within a system manages their own EVERFI Foundry account, we will be reaching out to each school directly.

Our course surveys collect student feedback about what they liked and did not like about the programs. We use this data when updating and rebuilding courses to make sure we're meeting student expectations. We also convene advisory councils with leading campus practitioners to inform our product development, incorporating their student-focused perspectives as we create content. In addition, the most powerful metric we measure our programs by is whether or not they drive results around knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors. We continue to see strong positive impact of our proven effective prevention programs, giving customers the confidence that our work together is producing outcomes that matter.

The good news is we are already in the process of integrating Foundry data over into our Vector LMS, a year in advance so that we can do the appropriate testing. By 12/31/22 all institutional data including customers' current user and other key information will be available in the Vector LMS platform. Customers will have access to the Vector LMS platform well in advance of moving from the Foundry platform  to review and audit the data transfer. 

Our popular Vector LMS is used by millions of higher education administrators and learners each year. It offers a wide variety of features that will be new to CPN Foundry customers, including many that customers have been requesting:

  • Maximize Your Data: The new Vector LMS platform will make your data easier to access, understand, and put to use at your campus or organization.
  • Elective Learning is built into Vector’s LMS platform to make non-required courses easier to access without making training assignments!
  • Repeated Training Plan Option for annual / every two years retraining, etc. Set up your training plan and it will automatically repeat based on your timing.
  • Administrator Reports can be emailed automatically to staff you designate.

 

Our goal is to make your upgrade as easy and effective as we can for you, maintaining the course topics and key functionality you rely on, while finding ways to improve on your current platform. It is our sincere commitment to make this process as seamless as possible. Our work and impact together mean too much for any other option.

We understand this is a big event for you and your team and its success takes pre-planning now.

  • Please start communicating with your campus business partners, including your IT Team, to let them know your upgrade is coming this year.
  • View the project plan with additional action items for customers here.

 

  • We are managing your upgrade process and will communicate with you on a regular basis about your progress.
  • We are creating training resources to help you and your team become successful with your new Vector LMS platform.
  • Our goal is to do as much of the work as possible. We plan to migrate your data and system configuration to your Vector LMS.

 

Get Inclusive, a small competitor, has been trying to confuse our customers by spreading misleading information about the upgrade to Vector LMS. This is simply a sales tactic. You can find out more about this on our The Facts About Get Inclusive page.

Frequently Asked Questions - Product

Your institution’s historical completed training records will be migrated from your Foundry platform to your new Vector LMS. Any learning that a user completes in Foundry will be reflected in this historical data. Data related to “in-progress” learning, however, cannot be migrated - if a learner has not completed a given course, there will be no record of their partial progress. As a best practice, please encourage your learners to complete their assigned training in Foundry prior to your full move to your Vector LMS platform.

Yes. Vector LMS includes a set of administrative features that automate assignments for new hires, repeating training, and group training assignments based on user criteria.

Vector Solutions understands the need for EVERFI Foundry customers to develop comfort, knowledge, and competency with the new, enhanced Vector LMS platform. As the Vector team continues to add new features and functionality to the platform in preparation for your upgrade, customers will have multiple opportunities to see the platform in action, including:

  • Webinars highlighting the Vector LMS platform will begin in March 2022, providing opportunities to see the platform and ask questions.
  • Detailed, self-guided training will be available for customer administrators and other platform stakeholders, beginning in April 2022.
  • In addition to video and written learning content for users and administrators, published materials will also include “crosswalks” that help explain similarities and differences between Vector LMS and the EVERFI Foundry platform.
  • Upon accessing Vector LMS, customers will have access to the Vector Support Center, where they will find comprehensive platform documentation and FAQs to assist with day-to-day platform management objectives.
  • Vector LMS also has courses that cover key administrator topics available directly within the platform.

Vector Solutions will publicize upcoming webinars as dates approach, and ensure recordings are made available. We will also provide direct guidance on how to access key learning content as your upgrade draws nearer.

Yes! Foundry's suite of course surveys will also be available in Vector LMS, including the transformative Impact Reports for relevant courses, and also including the ability for customers to add their own custom survey questions to capture rich, targeted data.

New users, user edits, position updates, and updates to other labels for different types of learners can be easily accomplished with the Vector LMS Auto-Uploader Tool, or via SSO. Customers using the Auto-Uploader via SFTP are able to update learner information by working in a spreadsheet, and then importing the spreadsheet into Vector LMS. By simply capturing learner titles or other labels in the spreadsheet, administrators can easily update this information in the Vector LMS platform.

Likewise, new hires can seamlessly be added for SFTP customers by adding names and other user information to the spreadsheet mentioned above, and importing via the Auto-Uploader Tool.. These new users can have learning assignments automatically generated based on criteria within their user record.

Note that customers using Single Sign On can fully automate the transfer of this information as it is updated in the source system.

Many Vector Solutions customers maintain multiple account instances. For example, it’s very common for higher education institutions to set up separate sites for delivering student learning versus faculty learning. This is easily accomplished in Vector LMS.

Yes, an administrator would locate the user's account in Vector LMS and reassign the course directly within their profile.

Yes. User privileges are a function of the permissions feature in the Vector LMS platform. A user account can be configured to allow both administrator and learner privileges.

Yes. The Vector LMS provides similar functionality using slightly different terminology and data structures. To create clarity on both the functionality and terminology, our Upgrade Team will provide Foundry users with a user guide to capture and define these distinctions.

The Campus Prevention Network Impact Team of prevention and compliance experts and social science researchers will continue to ensure that Vector Solutions products and resources are data-driven and evidence-based.

As we look ahead to an integrated course catalogue, we will prioritize factors like demonstrated efficacy, basis in research, and content rigor, and are committed to maintaining programs that have been proven effective in peer-reviewed studies (e.g., AlcoholEdu for College, Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, etc.)


 

Yes! We’re planning to invest in three core areas:
  • New student courses to address changing campus safety, well-being, and inclusion landscape, plus updates to current courses.
  • New faculty and staff courses as well as regularly updating existing courses.
  • New platform features/functionalities that add value and efficiency, along with technology solutions and integrations that connect our work to the broader ecosystem of impact.
An organization that is simply providing prevention and compliance programs is merely a vendor, not a strategic partner. We recognize the strategic importance of this work, and that prevention is a process and not only a program.

Yes! We recognize the importance of aligning student and employee courses with your institution’s unique mission, culture, and priorities.

To support this need, we already offer platform functionality that allows for customization of courses and will be expanding that capability even more.

Giving you the ability to include institution-specific content at key points in critical courses ensures consistency across your overall prevention processes.


 

Yes, the CPN Impact Team is now part of Vector Solutions and was a big reason Vector Solutions was so interested in acquiring EVERFI’s Higher Education business.

This team brings subject matter expertise in alcohol and substance misuse, diversity and inclusion, mental well-being, sexual and gender-based violence, fraternity and sorority life, higher education law and policy, human development, health communication, program evaluation, social and behavioral science, student success, and advanced statistical analysis. These on-staff experts will ensure that everything we do is evidence-based and impactful, utilizing public health frameworks to inform our courses and resources and drive meaningful change on campus and community outcomes.


 

We have been reaching out to all CPN clients to be sure they are aware of the full suite of Higher Education products that Vector Solutions offers including training, strategic data tools, incident reporting, and safety communications.

Now as a Vector Solutions client, you’ll receive discounts as you add solutions to your annual subscription, which can mean significant savings for your budget. If you’d like to learn more, please contact your Account Manager.


 

AlcoholEdu® for College is the flagship prevention course for the higher education industry, and has been taken by more than 11 million first-year college students since its launch in 2000. This course educates students on alcohol and other drugs, as well as bystander intervention skills, and institutions across the U.S. use AlcoholEdu to measure changes in students’ attitudes and beliefs on course topics and benchmark elements of their campus culture against industry peers through pre- and post- course surveys.

AlcoholEdu is informed by the latest research on the socially conscious attitudes and expectations of Gen Z, and it provides differentiated pathing for students based on their drinking experiences, including dedicated pathing for non-drinkers and students in recovery. Recently, the course added new content about cannabis and vaping to address growing usage trends.

Today, more than 700,000 first-year students use AlcoholEdu for College annually, and it’s been proven effective in eight peer-reviewed studies, demonstrating its positive impact on students’ alcohol-related attitudes, drinking behaviors, and negative outcomes.
