You can find courses three different ways in the Firefly Learning Portal:
- On the first log-in users can select their interests in a simple two step process. Once interests have been selected, random courses will show up on the user’s home page of the Firefly Learning Portal. This function can be utilized to find courses that users may not be aware of.
- The search bar, which can be found on the home page of the Firefly Learning Portal. This search feature uses the same method as Google and Facebook.
- The library, which is always accessible at the top of the Firefly Learning Portal.
The Firefly Learning Portal home page provides you with easy access to content you use most often and options to assist you in personalizing your learning. Use it to find and access content:
- Resume Learning
- My Playlist
- Recommendations based on recent activity
- Popular Channels
Use the Firefly Learning Portal search to quickly find content (such as courses, videos, or subjects). Our search uses an intelligent search engine that auto-completes recommendations as you enter text into the search field. Depending on the terms you enter, search results can include any of your available content types (such as courses or books) and specific asset details (such as author, duration, expertise levels, technology versions, description, and more).
If an asset in the search results is part of a course, the From Course field links back to the associated course.
If an asset in the search results is part of a channel, the From Channel field links back to the associated channel(s).
The Firefly Learning Portal Search returns 20 results per page. To see additional results, click Show More at the bottom of the Search results page.
The Firefly Library contains all of the learning assets available to you. These assets are organized into a hierarchy to help find content quickly and easily. You can browse the library, search for content, and add your favorite assets to your Playlist.
- Area: Top level of the library. Areas are broad categories relating to a particular business or technical functions.
- Subject: An area is broken into several subjects, each relating to a particular branch or course of study.
- Channels: Channels are the core building blocks of the library. A channel is where you go to learn everything and anything about a particular subject area that interests you.

Users of the Firefly Learning Portal will have access to their personal profile. The profile can be found at the top right corner of the Firefly Learning Portal “My Profile”. The profile contains the following:
- Assignments: This feature can be utilized by admins only. If an admin assigns learning to a user, those assignments will show up here.

- Playlist: A user’s playlist is where courses can be bookmarked. Users can add courses to this area for a quick way to get back to learning. The play list is also shown on the Home Page of the Firefly Learning Portal. Utilize this area as a shortcut.
- Interests: Users select their interests in a two-step process during their first log-in. If a user’s interests changes, they can utilize this area to update their campus and home page.

The Embedded Learning Synchronized Assistant (ELSA) is a browser plug in that provides access to the Firefly Learning Portal so you can quickly search for content, answer questions, or solve problems. ELSA is accessible anytime throughout your workday and is embedded within your daily workflow.
You can install ELSA as a Chrome extension or as a standalone Windows app with an optional browser add-on for Internet Explorer 11.
ELSA for Chrome
If you primarily use Chrome to access internet sites, the Chrome extension allows you to highlight text on a Web page and quickly search the Firefly Learning Portal for learning content. The Chrome extension is only available from within a Chrome browser and remains attached to the Chrome extensions bar. Clicking outside the extension, or closing the browser window, closes the extension.
The ELSA Chrome extension can be installed into the user’s Chrome browser through the Chrome Web Store by navigating to the location below and clicking the Add to Chrome button.
ELSA Windows App and Internet Explorer 11 add-on
Any Microsoft Windows user can use ELSA’s quick search features by installing the Windows App. During installation, you have the option to install an Internet Explorer 11 add-on. The IE 11 add-on enables you to highlight text on a web page in Internet Explorer 11 and quickly search the Firefly Learning Portal for learning content.
The Windows App is a typical windows standalone application that you can minimize and move around your screen. The App stays open in the background until you close it. You can use the App without IE 11 to search for content, however you cannot search for content in IE 11 without the App.
Open the ELSA download page to find download options for both the Chrome extension and the Windows App.
