  1. I am struggling horribly to learn the Ignition "System" because I am totally NOT a "Listening" learner. I am a Read it and OWN it learner.

    Please help me, I am totally not a "Listening" learner. Trying to follow your web instruction videos is an exercise in total frustration. can I download and study a Printed instruction manual and support materials? After reading and studying printed information I believe I will be far more able to complete the IU Challenge tests. What I hear does not connect, What I READ is MINE forever! Thank You , BOB

  2. Invalid answer in Designer Basics

    In the Designer Basics quiz there is the following question: "Turning on preview mode in the Designer will enable testing which of the following? Select all that apply."

    There are 4 correct answers to choose from, and another answer that says "All of the above".

    Because the other 4 answers are correct, "All of the above" is a valid answer, but it gets graded as wrong. Either that particular answer should be removed as a possibility, or the question should not allow "Select all that apply".

    Also, this is not a good question because in the video it is stated…

  3. In the topic Gateway Security lesson AD Internal Hybrid

    For this question "There is no need for an Internal Failover source when using an AD/Internal Hybrid authentication profile."

    The requirement to have an Internal Failover is not discussed, only the possibility of having it.

  4. Course content for "Installing Microsoft SQL Server Express" is outdated, requires update.

    Course content for "Installing Microsoft SQL Server Express" is outdated, it uses SQL Server Express 2012, and should be updated for current version (e.g. 2017) which has many more options to consider (or know that they can be left at default).

  7. IU narrator is difficult to understand

    One of the IU narrators is difficult to understand. The narrator in Querying Data from Database speaks too quickly and does not enunciate well enough in almost all the videos he narrated. Querying Data from Database may not be the best example, but if one were to review all of his videos and compare them to the other narrators, you will better understand what I am complaining about. I often had to replay his videos multiple times, yet rarely replayed anyone else's.

  8. Possible wrong answer in Connecting To Databases

    Possible wrong answer in Connecting To Databases, question: "When creating a connection to a Microsoft SQL Server database, which of the following methods can you use?"

    I answered "SQL Authentication/Username" and "Windows Authentication". It was marked incorrect. If that is incorrect then what do YOU think is the correct answer?

    When I re-watched the video the presenter said the following:

    there's two different ways to connect to user names.
    One is I can fill in the user name and password here and so I can say "sa" and I can put in the password that I typed in when I…

  9. another question that is not explained in the video

    Expression tag video does not do a very good job of explaining the expressions. For example, this question is in the challenge:

    Using the expression below, what is the result if Tag1 = 3, Tag2 = 2, and Tag3=1? if({[~]Tag1} ^ {[~]Tag2} > 10, {[~]Tag3}, {[~]Tag3} + {[~]Tag2}) ^ 2

    The video says nothing about any of the operators. What exactly does expression language do? References are to the functions in the appendix of the manual. So What? These still do not explain execution of the operators in this expression. By using what I know from C the expression does…

  10. User Manual/Documentation Link

    I needed to open the user manual/documentation link many times while watching the videos for more information or to clarify things that were said in the video lessons.

    Maybe there is a link somewhere that it is located in IU, but I'm not sure it's placed in a location that makes it easy for users of IU to find.

    It is obviously very easy to just google and locate the manual/documentation, but for new users, they may not know about it till 50% done with IU!

    Love the courses, they're EXTREMELY well done.

  11. Wrong Answer in SFC Elements Parallel

    Questions: "You can design a parallel section to allow flow to move below it even if all of it's parallel branches have not finished. "

    The Parallel Section video clearly shows you how to do this. The answer should be True. I was marked wrong for giving the right answer.

  12. Add a video for how to restore the 'Challenge' file (including possible error when downloading using ie11 (ie renames file as a *.zip file).

    A search of help file for 'Challenge' yields zero results. It would be great to have a quick video that shows how to download and restore the *.gwbk file, INCLUDING the fact that ie11 MAY rename the *.gwbk as a *.zip file (in which case, downloading with an alternate browser (e.g. Chrome) corrected the problem.

  13. Store and Forward not Guaranteed

    Course: Tag Historian in Ignition
    Topic: Configuring Historian

    Question: The store and forward system GUARANTEES that you don't lose any historical data when logging to a database.

    The answer should be FALSE. If you do not have enough disk space allocated you can lose data. Which is even stated in the video, not to mention the numerous amount of other technical failures that could cause the system to lose data. This question opens Ignition up to some serious liability issues if not corrected.

  15. Possible wrong answer in Gateway Network V 7.9 Topic Challenge

    Question:

    Which of the following are identifiers that can be configured on a Security Zone? Select all that apply.
    -Project names
    -User names
    -Gateway names
    -mac addresses
    -host names

    Video(security zones and service security @1:25)
    -IP addresses, Host names, Gateway names

    My answer:
    -Host Names & Gateway Names
    - I believe that the MAC Address option should be changed to IP Address, since a MAC address is a hardware address.

  16. Wrong answer in the Gateway Security Challenge

    The question is "When using the Verify Authentication Profile page in the Gateway, you can test multiple authentication profiles at the same time." As I understand it, the page allows a test of one user in one profile at a time but the answer "False" turns up wrong.

    Following is a link to screen shots of a challenge question and of the path in the challenge application;

    https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6TOf1YQjdYtY0psdnFkakFvWk0?usp=sharing

    The choices in the questions are variations of a string tag and yet the path in the application is DB500,DI8. Either I completely misunderstand the question or the challenge exam and the application are out of sync

  19. Text Based Course Accompaniment

    I find that I personally learn much more effectively if I read information as opposed to hearing it. It would be quite beneficial to myself, and I suspect others, if there were text based accompaniments, including information relevant to the challenges, for each video course.
