Learndot Destination


Learndot is a product focussed customer education platform that enables companies to rapidly produce and distribute engaging training content.

This destination is maintained by Learndot. For any issues with the destination, please reach out to their team.

NOTE: The Learndot Destination is currently in beta, which means that they are still actively developing the destination. This doc was last updated on September 26, 2019. If you are interested in joining their beta program or have any feedback to help improve the Learndot Destination and its documentation, please let their team know!

Getting Started

  1. From your Segment UI’s Destinations page click on “Add Destination”.
  2. Search for “Learndot” within the Destinations Catalog and confirm the Source you’d like to connect to.
  3. Drop in the “API Key” into your Segment Settings UI which you can find from your Learndot admin.

Identify

If you haven’t had a chance to review our spec, please take a look to understand what the Identify method does. An example call would look like:

analytics.identify('userId123', {
  email: 'john.doe@segment.com'
});

Learndot leverages the identify event in order to map events in Segment back to learners in Learndot.

IMPORTANT: email is a required trait as Learndot will use this as the primary field to complete the mapping.

Track

If you haven’t had a chance to review our spec, please take a look to understand what the Track method does. An example call would look like:

analytics.track('Clicked Login Button')

The track call is used in conjunction with the identify to determine when to mark lessons complete for learners.

The track and identify are tightly coupled in Learndot. We use the identify to map your user back to the Learner in Learndot and the track to determine if the user has completed the task you gave them. If Learndot receives a track call without an accompanying identify call it won’t be able to determine which Learner the completed the task.

Page

If you haven’t had a chance to review our spec, please take a look to understand what the Page method does. An example call would look like:

analytics.page()

Page calls will be sent to Learndot as a pageviewand will be used to help further segment the users and power more detailed analytics in Learndot.

Screen

If you haven’t had a chance to review our spec, please take a look to understand what the Screen method does. An example call would look like:

[[SEGAnalytics sharedAnalytics] screen:@"Home"];

Screen calls will be sent to Learndot as a screenview and will be used to help further segment the users and power more detailed analytics in Learndot.

Page, Screen & Group

Page, Screen and Group calls are used to help further segment the users and power more detailed analytics in Learndot.

Personas

You can send computed traits and audiences generated through Segment Personas to this destination as a user property. To learn more about Personas, reach out for a demo.

For user-property destinations, an identify call will be sent to the destination for each user being added and removed. The property name will be the snake_cased version of the audience name you provide with a true/false value. For example, when a user first completes an order in the last 30 days, we will send an identify call with the property order_completed_last_30days: true, and when this user no longer satisfies we will set that value to false.

When the audience is first created an identify call is sent for every user in the audience. Subsequent syncs will only send updates for those users which were added or removed since the last sync.
