Setting up eduMe courses for Fountain

In order for eduMe courses to be available in Fountain, you must first create a course via the eduMe admin panel. Once you have your course created please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the People tab and click + Create a team
  2. Name this team ‘fountain’, please note this must be all lowercase
  3. If using multiple groups, please ensure you have a ‘fountain’ team for each group
  4. Go to the Learning tab, click into your chosen course and head to the Delivery tab
  5. Click Assign to teams, (or assign/unassign teams if you already have a team assigned to this course) and select the 'fountain' team. Click Update
  6. Click Publish course from the top right corner

Once your course has been assigned to the ‘fountain’ team and published, this will be available in the drop down selection of the partner stage in Fountain.

When setting Partner Rules for a lesson, select ‘Partner status is’, then specify the rules you’d like to set up.


Testing the workflow

We always recommend testing the workflow before going live with applicants.

To do this, you will need to test the setup with an email address that is unique (i.e. not already existing as an admin or learner on eduMe)


Editing eduMe Courses within the Fountain flow

You may wish to make updates to eduMe courses within your Fountain workflows from time to time. Here’s how you can do this: 

  • When you make changes to eduMe courses, the completion status of existing/past applicants may be impacted 
  • Therefore, we recommend duplicating the relevant course(s) and working in the duplicated version before publishing and assigning to team ‘fountain’ as a new stage
  • Set up a new eduMe partner stage in your workflow(s) so that new applicants go through the new version of the course, while those who are ‘In progress’ in the original course are not impacted
  • Once a course is no longer required, you can remove this from the Fountain workflow and unpublish it. We’d recommend keeping it assigned to team ‘fountain’ so that you can still access relevant data if required

Using eduMe assessments in Fountain

Create a scored assessment using the eduMe assessments feature to test your learners’ knowledge.

Setting a minimum score

If you need to make sure your learners have reached a certain level of understanding before progressing, you can set a minimum score. This can either be set in eduMe or Fountain depending on your preferred outcome:

1. Allow learners to retake the assessment until they reach the minimum score. This is set in eduMe.
    1. In your eduMe admin panel, head to the course you’d like to edit and open the assessment
    2. Click on the final slide (Results slide). Here, you’ll see the option to toggle ‘Has minimum score’ on or off. Switch this on
    3. You can set a minimum score between 0 to 100 and include your own pass/fail messaging
    4. Click Done to save
    5. In Fountain, make sure Partner status is set to Completed

2. Exclude learners who do not reach the minimum score from your selection criteria. This is set in Fountain.
    1. In your eduMe admin panel, you’ll need to create a separate course with a standalone assessment. Do not set a minimum score in eduMe
    2. Add your assessment as a new Partner stage in your Fountain flow after the initial eduMe course
    3. Set rules for your assessment Partner stage to create minimum score behavior, e.g. ‘Partner detail has key with value’ / ‘Greater than or equal’ / ‘80’ & ‘partner detail has key with value’ / ‘less than’ / ‘80’
